Busy Week

March 7, 2021

It’s been a busy week, but unfortunately Life intervened, and I haven’t had time to do the play-by-play, so we’ll have to play Catch-Up. We strive to help youalls see the correlations between what the planets are up to and what your Inner and Outer Circumstances are up to, though, and that’s easier in retrospect anyway, so Catch-Up is my middle name. If you can come to discern how the correlations operate in your own Life, that’ll serve you far better than someone else’s predictions ever would. Someone else’s predictions are either based on some ossified textbook, or on their own Lived Experience, which may be far removed from your own.

The Biggest astroevent here is the 7 March 2021 (8:30 pm PST) Exaggeration (Station) of the Energy of Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos), in 27 Gemini. The planet Chaos doesn’t stand for Disorder, it stands for What came before Zeus put everything in Order. That is, the Matriarchy. Gemini is the quintessence of Change, and gosh, it does seem like there’s an almost Unlimited amount of Change going on. Chaos will bring Unlimited Potential to Compassion (Cancer) starting next summer (July 2022). Wouldn’t it be Wonderful if we could just Let These Things, like Unlimited Compassion, Happen. Usually, what most Evident instead is everyone’s Resistance. I suppose we could see “America’s Rescue Plan” as Resistance as well, since it’s aimed at restoring what used to be Normal. On the other hand, we could see it as a boon to help get things Changed in our individual and institutional Lives, since the money comes without strings.

One way to Feel the Energy of dwarf planet Chaos, might be to Ask yourself, “What have I been Craving?” Not Addictions, but States of Mind or Emotion or Circumstances, or Manifestation Goals. Then, “Why haven’t I been Giving that to myself?” What? It’s not yours to Give? Who’s is it then? I thought this was a Free Will Planet! Giving yourself Permission to Receive is fundamental to any Manifestation. You may have well rationalized answers to both of the first two questions (Craving and not-Giving). If you can get a handle on why you’ve been depriving yourself, you may be able to Grok what that part of you Wants, rather than what they Don’t Want. You may be able to find a way to score what your Craver Wants and what your Depriver Wants. You could even Dream Up a way that each of them could Help the Other Get What They Want. But the first step is taking the Negative away from your Depriver. Maybe start by renaming them DeepRiver instead of Depriver.

And of course any progress toward Getting What Any Part of You Wants, will Trigger your Upper Limits. I can’t think of a better source than Gay Hendricks’s The Big Leap for dealing with those…

Then there’s the Out-of-Bounds Moon. This is a 22-year Cycle, eleven years In Bounds then eleven years when it goes Out of Bounds for a few days every two weeks. It’s subtle, but our Emotions are stronger when the Moon is Out of Bounds. It crossed the Tropic of Capricorn heading Southeast on 6 March at 12:36 am PST in 20 Sagittarius, Stood Still at 25:10 South Declination on 7 March at 12:40 pm PST in 11 Capricorn, and will cross the Tropic heading Northeast on 9 March at 1:36 am PST in 2 Aquarius. I know, the Moon always goes from East to West, doesn’t it. Well, not quite. You have to take a snapshot every night at Midnight to see it, but the Moon actually moves Eastward about 13 Degrees a day, while the Earth below it spins from West to East. So when we see the Moon heading West, it’s actually us heading East – at about a thousand miles per hour! Feel that 1,000 mph Breeze? Now you know why some people have decided to Trust their Senses and go back to the Flat Earth theory.

Speaking of Trust, asteroid Eurydike (which symbolizes Trust) Stood Still on 5 March (3am PST), and dwarf planet Asbolus (symbolizing our Intuitions) Stood Still on 4 March (8:15 am PST), so you may have Noticed that you weren’t Trusting your Intuitions, or Congratulating yourself because you were Trusting your Intuition! There’s a good chance we were Thinking or Dreaming about how We coulda beena Contenda! – Trusting or Mistrusting our Intuitions about our Unlimited Potential. On this Flat Earth, All There Is Is Now. That means everything that has appeared to have happened up till this Moment, was all Nothing except a Foundation for this Moment. Whether we Enjoyed Success or Learned (Consciously or Unconsciously) from Failure, it was all Perfect Preparation. Each Moment is a Fulcrum, where we can spin the wheel and Shift the Direction of our Trajectory. There’s Unlimited Potential in every Direction – which Direction will we Choose?

And finally, asteroid Pallas, which symbolizes Boundaries, left Aquarius and entered Pisces on 7 March (1pm PST). In Aquarius we were likely Overthinking our Boundaries, trying to make them fit some theory of how we thought they Should be. In Pisces, we’ll probably take them Overboard on the Emotional side, too easily Forgiving those who Transgress but with whom we have an Emotional Attachment, and being Overcasual about our Boundaries with people we aren’t Emotionally Attached to. In general, it will probably be Difficult to maintain Professional Boundaries. We can probably expect more #MeToo fireworks over the next eleven months, till Pallas enters Aries in mid-February 2022. Pallas took only three months to cross Aquarius, but it turns Retrograde in Pisces and spends eleven months there.

A ten-Degree span is called a Decanate, and each Sign holds three of them. The first third of Pisces is the Pisces Decanate of Pisces, the second third the Cancer Decanate, and the third the Scorpio Decanate. Pisces itself is about Emotional Wandering (Mutable Water). Since Emotions can be Compelling, what we Feel in a given Moment may be all we Feel. Even as we can be totally Absorbed by a different Emotion a few minutes later. Totally Clear to us, totally Confusing to Observers with a time horizon longer than a few minutes. Which is Good. That’s how Emotions work. It’s only the Intellect degrading them that would have it be otherwise.

The Emotional Wandering phase (Pisces Decanate) spans the rest of March and most of November (7 Mar-8 Apr, 22 Oct-26 Nov 2021). In the Cancer Decanate our Boundaries are likely to become more Empathetic and Compassionate. That’s April till mid-May, October, and December till mid-January (9 Apr-15 May, 6 Sep-21 Oct, 27 Nov-13 Jan 2022). The Scorpio Decanate in mid-May through August and mid-January through mid-February 2022 (16 May-5 Sep and 13 Jan-13 Feb) will likely be dedicated to Investigation and Judgment. Scorpio’s Relentless about seeking Truth, Emotional Truth that is. If you inadvertently Hurt someone’s Feelings while Pallas is in the Scorpio Decanate of Pisces, you may have a hard time convincing them it wasn’t Intentional. The Emotional Truth is that they’re Hurt, and that’s the Fact that matters.

The upcoming week is about Letting Go of Karma, as asteroid Atropos Stands Still on 10 March, and asteroid Lachesis Stations on 13 March. Atropos is about chunks of Karma that reach their Expiry Date on their own. Since Karma is what we’re Habituated to, though, that doesn’t mean that they Leave. Because it’s almost All That We Know, Letting Go can be difficult, as it leaves us staring into the Abyss of the Unknown. Bad Karma may Feel better than No Karma At All. Lachesis on the other hand, gives us an Opportunity to Let Go of a chunk that we’re sick of but that’s still Alive. Karma does not Hold us, We Hold Karma, so it’s Easy to Let Go of it. Except that the resulting Void can feel very much like “Something’s Wrong.” Watch for that Feeling – it means you’re on the right track.

Handmaids and Handbaskets 3

November 8, 2020

As often happens, “tomorrow” gets delayed as Life intervenes. But I’m not complaining! When any astroindication is Lit Up, we’re either likely to Experience its Essence, or the Opposite of its Essence, because astroindicators are about Dimensions rather than Directions. Direction is up to us, as we can React (through Karma) or Respond (through Choice) anywhere along the Dimensional scale. Of course it’s not anywhere near as Cartesian or 2D as that, but that’s the way the Western-trained Either/Or mind sees it.

So on 6 November 2020, when Respect for All Things (asteroid Hopi) was Exaggerated (Stationary), we could have Experienced Either Respect for All Things or Disrespect for All Things, and we Experienced Respect for All Things. That’s a tremendous Blessing! Well, maybe Respect for Most Things would be more accurate, as we also Experienced Disrespect for Thuggery. Since Thuggery is Disrespectful in the Extreme, though, I for one am quite willing to let two Negatives multiply to a Positive, and translate Disrespect for Thuggery into virtual Respect for All Things.

But since “tomorrow” has finally arrived, it’s time to interpret the Merger (Conjunction) of Guilt and Ego Death (asteroid Nemesis) with Illumination (“Torch Dragon” minor planet Zhulong). Just phrasing it that way sounds useful – having Light cast upon our Guilt and Ego Deaths! We Experience Remorse and Guilt when our Behavior transgresses our own Values. Our Behavior follows from our Ego, so in order to Make Amends for our Transgression, we must first Adjust our Ego’s Relationship to our Behavior – ie, often, an Ego Death. Lighting up this process is a Boon.

As two planets make their way ’round the Zodiac, faster planets will repeatedly pass slower planets. When they do, they Begin a “Cycle,” with the Slower planet Initiating the Faster planet as an Assistant in accomplishing its Mission. The Slower planets set the Agenda, while the Faster planets implement the Evolution specified in the Agenda. Each Cycle lasts till the next Meeting of the two planets. Cycles evolve in predictable ways (as delineated in Dane Rudhyar’s The Lunation Cycle)…

The Beginning or Initiation often Illuminates an Issue or a Change (which becomes an Issue whenever we’re Attached to the Status Quo).

During the first one fourth of the Cycle (till the Faster planet Squares the Slower planet, or gets 90 Degrees Ahead of it), the Issue is Underground, as Ego Investments (and in the Pandemican Empire, especially Monetary Investments) in the previous regime Lobby and Propagandize to Discourage the Change.

Between 90 and 180 Degrees of Separation, there is an initial Crisis as the New Cycle Erupts from the Underwhere, followed by a Blooming of the New Energy at 180 Degrees (Opposition).

The New Cycle Fruits between 223 Degrees (the Phitile) and 270 Degrees (the Waning Square).

After 270 Degrees of Separation, the now-no-longer-so-New Cycle begins the Autumn of it’s Lifespan. Often the Cyclical equivalent of the Fall Equinox or Last-Quarter Moon includes a Crisis that suggests we Loosen our Ego-Attachment to the now-Old Cycle’s Manifestations, by Requiring Adjustments to keep our Response to the Issue relevant.

During the Last 90 Degrees of the Cycle, the Suggestions to Let Go, and the Necessity of Adjustment, get more Extreme as we approach the Next Initiation.

If we’re paying Attention, the Energy of the Next Cycle begins to get very Obvious once we’re within 15 Degrees or so of the Next Initiation – ie, when the Faster planet is 15 Degrees or less Behind the Slower planet.

Of course our Sensitivity will determine how much and how well we Respond to each of these Cosmic Suggestions.

Our first clue for interpreting the nature of a Cycle, is the Nature of the planets involved. Here, the Torrent of Evolution toward Enlightenment (Zhulong) prescribes the Agenda, by Illuminating the places where our Karmic Patterns are out of Synch with our Values (Nemesis).

The second clue is the nature of the Sign and Degree where the Initiation occurs, as read by its Sabian Symbol (a reading for the individual Degree) of that Degree. The Nemesis-Zhulong Cycle spans about 5 years. The Cycle that’s now finished Began December 2015 in 24 Libra, the reading for which is “A Butterfly with a third wing on its left side,” which is to say, A Transformation Focused on our Magnetic (Feminine) Nature. I can easily see how that’s been Occurring.

Our New Cycle begins in 4 Scorpio, “A youth carries a lighted candle in a devotional ritual.” Ahem. They aren’t usually so remarkably Obvious.

The third clue about the nature of a Cycle, which is a lot more trouble to Divine, is the chart of its Initiation…

The Crux of this chart is a Challenge (T-Square) to Transcend (asteroid Bee-Zed) the Relationship between our Intrusive Memories (dwarf planet Gonggong, formerly known as “OR10”) and our Limiting Beliefs (asteroid Vesta).

Wow, is that ever relevant! When I first saw the length of the red bar and the absence of the “blue wave” on the Electoral College bar-chart on Wednesday morning, my Intrusive Memories of Childhood Abuse and Karmic Oppression Triggered Depression. The Challenge is that we Avoid the Likelihood of our Ego being Drowned by the Held Emotions of our Regression. That would look like inner Wailing and Gnashing of Teeth, and outer Submission, as if the Oppression and Abuse was Personal and Present Moment.

There are two Relevant Alternatives to Drowning. We can Recognize that we’re Experiencing those Emotions (as Opposed to Believing that the Trauma is Present Moment), and Lovingly and Gently be Present with them. In Meditation, perhaps, or in Conversation with someone who’s able to be Non-Judgmental, or by Locating the Emotions in our Body or our Field, and being Loving and Gentle – Soft and Warm – with them there.

And we can Directly Transcend them. That requires that we spend at least a few minutes Recognizing them. Avoidance is not Transcendance, though at times Denial is Healthy, as it allows us to Avoid Overwhelm while we address several Issues in turn instead of trying to swallow them all at once.

The simplest form of Transcendence might just be Recognizing that we Been There Done That and Survived, and we can Do It Again If We Have To. That’s still pretty Depressive, though, so it’s not exactly Transcending the Karmic Whirlpool of Thoughts and Emotions. A better Choice would be a PIAVA or two. For instance, saying to ourself, “You Poor Sweetheart, you really got sucked into that Regression, didn’t you.” That would have been the epitome of A Transformation Focused on our Magnetic (Feminine) Nature from the Old Cycle. The new Cycle didn’t start till Friday morning, after all!

I didn’t think of doing that, though for several reasons it would have been the Preferred Alternative. I eventually took the Risk of Accumulating additional Karma by Thetaing Joe moving into the White House, in Peace. When the “Show Me!” phase indeed showed just that without having to Tap Out any Resistance, my Emotional Reactions were much Relieved.

A “general rule” of Responsible Manifestation, is that we Change only that which we can Change – namely Ourself – and Accept what we can’t Change – namely the Universe Outside Ourself. And of course that we have the Wisdom to tell the Difference. Acceptance was my initial Response, which is Good, because it demonstrates that I have Succeeded in becoming Adept at a Self-Transformation that I began forty years ago, namely Recovering my Feelings, which (in my Perception) my Family of Origin didn’t Allow.

When I Recognize however that the Universe Outside Myself is “just” a Mirror for the State of my Limiting Beliefs, the World Changes. Other people obviously prefer to Live in a World where the Antichrist still occupies the White House, and that’s okay. I want to Live in the Other World. It’s okay with me (and perhaps even okay with Quantum Physics) if the Earth “splits in two” on some level or another, as long as I end up with my Preferred Option. Isn’t that getting pretty close to what “5D” might mean?

As the Votes were being counted, I wasn’t done with my Karmic Mirroring. My car threatened to repeat the need for a ridiculously expensive but necessary small repair. For that one I made do, and set it aside, choosing temporary Denial. While I PIAVAed that it was just a Feint, as it turned out to be, once Hopi’s Station was Exact.

Then my computer died. That’s a Biggie. Not only would this blog die for a while, but so would much of the rest of my Life. I finally got it to work again, but not after a lot of PIAVAing and Accepting, Imagining the steps I would have to take to meet my Delivery and get back up to speed with everything. I still don’t know if it will be working tomorrow, so this is obviously a Suggestion that I begin the process of replacing it. If I’m lucky I might make it to mid-February 2022 (when Nemesis Squares Zhulong and a Crisis of Illumination arises).

And that I begin to Change the way I use it. I spend too much time sitting. I’ve already been leaning toward spending more time carrying lighted candles in devotional rituals, ie, in Meditation. By the way, a friend has steered me toward…

I haven’t had time to check it out yet (it’s live till 10 December), but I plan to, and I recommend it to you as well. If we’re still on the same Planet afterward, I’ll let you know how it turns out – maybe you can let me know if you check it out?

The T-Square (red triangle) in the Nemesis-Zhulong chart is overlain by a Truss Bridge (the blue superstructure). If this Bridge was in the opposite half of the chart, the Transcendence (Bee-Zed) Issue would be Self-Resolving (a Diamond Star). With the Bridge overlying the T-Square instead, we have a portion of the Self-Resolution, but not all (we lack the Finger of the Goddess pointing to Bee-Zed, which would Focus our Attention on the Transcendence Directly, rather than our having to Manipulate the Relationship between our Memories=Gonggong and our Beliefs=Vesta). My Experience Validated this, as the Issues that arose for me were Resolved for now, but not entirely without my Active Intervention.

The Elbows in the Truss Bridge, aka the Gifts that will Serve us in our Transcendence, are Nemesis-Zhulong itself (Illumination of Guilt) and Pholus-Quaoar-asteroid Lilith (Taking Full and Sovereign Control over our Survival). These are Blessings, and my Responses to the Issues that arose for me Reflect that, as I was Inspired to Imagine the steps I would take to mitigate the Issues, rather than being Sucked into an Emotional Whirlpool that rendered me useless.

But the Configuration also Asks us to see what would Balance the chart, as a Finger of the Goddess (two Quincunxes or 5-Sign Angles converging on Bee-Zed) or a Grand Cross would fill in the Empty lower half of the chart.

We can make the T-Square into a complete Grand Cross by adding asteroid Admetos, at 3 Gemini. The Mythic Admetus was a bit of a Drama Queen that was admired for his hospitality, suggesting that it might behoove us to Talk About our Memory-Limitation Adventures.

We can add three Stars to complete our Finger of the Goddess. Mirzam at 8 Cancer is known as an Announcer, reinforcing our Talking suggestion. Hamel at 8 Taurus was known for Independent Action, and Schedar (not the cheese) at 8 Taurus was a “Strong woman who demands Dignity and rules by the Power of her Respectability and Honor” and Suggests that we “Rely on our Desire to always Function with Propriety, Treat others as we would like to be Treated, and Know that our Dignity is the Source of our Power” —Brady’s Book of the Fixed Stars, pp.86-88, 96, 227-8.

Happy Lunar New Year 3

January 26, 2020

An occasional reader Asks,

“Here’s what I want to know in these dark days when [the Influence of the Antichrist] seems to be spreading worldwide: when is the Age of Aquarius?”

These are 2,150-year “Ages,” so they don’t Shift on a dime.  We’re more Comfortable with Discrete Changes than we are with Gradual Changes, however, so even if we Recognize that Change is usually Incremental, we’d like to have a hard date so we know when to Celebrate Birthdays, don’t we.  Our post on Happy Lunar New Year, at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2020/01/24/happy-lunar-new-year/, proposed several possible dates – May 2023, 25 February 2020, 25 January 2020, 2 March 2020.

But Aquarius is Fixed Air, which we can translate as Rigid Ideology.  From that perspective, it began on 1 January 2000, when the New Century chart indicated Polarity (the Grand Cross, with its Saturn-Uranus and Pallas-Neptune Oppositions) as one of the four defining characteristics of the Century.  Fortunately, Enlightenment was another (the Sabian Symbol for the Initiation of the then-new Chiron-Pluto Cycle).  It probably wouldn’t hurt to review that chart, so we can review the other two defining characteristics as well.

The Digital Age, which is replacing the Industrial Age, begins at the Capricorn (Northern Winter) Solstice, 2020 (Initiation of the second of twenty Jupiter-Saturn Cycles in Air Signs).  The promise of the Digital Age is that “Work” will no longer be necessary for us, because the Machines will do it all.  That’s a pipe dream, obviously, based on our Experience, but once the Digital Age goes Exponential – which it will, and surprisingly soon – that may Change.

For this to work, for The People as well as The Owners, the Machines must be Publicly Owned.  The Founders and CEOs can be minority owners if they haven’t Learned to Share yet, as long as most of the profits are distributed to The People.  The People also have to stop Worshiping Mammon, or They won’t be Willing to Share, either.  There is Talk of Jubilee and Universal Income, which is positive, but The People haven’t demonstrated yet that They understand much of this.

That’s if The People Survive.  Climate Change is the Grey Swan here.  If we pull another Atlantis, what would the Age of Aquarius even mean?  That we’re Underwater?  Why does Aquarius pour Water over everything, anyway?  Because Fixed Air is a Skeptic?  Skepticism will only Freeze us into What Already Is.  The People might start to get Serious about Climate Change in 2022 (when the new Pholus-Quaoar [Responsibility/Survival] Cycle is Initiated, at 8 Capricorn on 2 February 2022.  That’s 2/2/2022, which resolves to 10, the Wheel of Fortune; another chart we need to Examine).

Our Survival Zeitgeist then shifts from “Children play on a swing hanging from the branches of a huge Oak tree: The power of tradition as it shelters the beginnings of individual self-expression” (the Sabian Symbol for the 11 Leo Initiation of the previous, 12 October 1901, Pholus-Quaoar Cycle) to “In a Sun-lit home domesticated Birds sing joyously: The wholesome happiness which subservience to the ideals and patterns of a well-established culture brings to those who accept them unreservedly (the Sabian Symbol for 8 Capricorn).”

Based on this, if we see “the Influence of the Antichrist” as anti-Democratic, maybe Robotic Obedience to Cultural Propaganda is our Best Option.  To a Culture that requires everyone to spend an hour a day with their thumb in the dike, for instance.  Someone might even invent a Culture that’s based on Universal Acceptance of Other People’s Ideas.  Wouldn’t that be Radical.  They’d have to outlaw the Idea that certain Other People, however defined, need to be Killed, probably enforced with Capital Punishment.  See how quickly Mentality – and Fixed Air – shoots itself in the foot?

If we look at what Hupers actually Do, rather than what they Profess, we see how we’re Herd Animals, who often violently Resist an Idea until enough Other People come to Accept the Idea.  Once we Realize that continuing our Resistance will lead to our Abandonment, we often relent.  As a Social Species, except for Indigenous Cultures that Train for the eventuality, Hupers equate Abandonment with Death, because they’ve Forgotten how to Survive Alone, and have themselves Abandoned the Intuitive Energies (such as the “Gods” Quaoar or Makemake) who would Teach them how.

We also know that Hupers generally prefer to Conserve Energy, wanting to keep their Investments producing as long as possible.  Consequently, few of them jump right onto the bandwagon when a New Cycle Begins.  Instead, they argue that the New Cycle Ain’t Natural, and, once the Initial Excitement about it begins to subside, most folks start to Deny that the New Cycle will prevail, and Act as though the Old Cycle still reigns.  Until the New Cycle reaches the point where Denial is no longer possible (the Waxing Square of the Cycle).

From that Perspective, the dates we gave in the first paragraph of this post, could be our best guesses (since they’re Waxing Squares).

Another feature of Huperity and its psychology, is that while Mentality is Dualistic, the Unconscious is not.  Of course folks who Deny the Invisible are prone to Deny the Unconscious, but that’s their loss.  While the public media and most of our other discourse is Dualistic, our Behavior isn’t.  Most of us Say one thing and Do the opposite, because we’re trying to Convince ourself that we aren’t “one of those people who” Do that.  Once we Recognize that, then our approach to astrology is drastically different.

Aquarius is no longer necessarily Rigid Ideologies, it could just as easily mean The Antithesis of Rigid Ideologies.  That might mean The End of Judgment.  That could produce Universal Acceptance of Other People.  That would probably require the Opening of Hearts.  It could even produce Respect for All Things, even for the Consciousness inherent in Nature and in supposedly Inanimate Things.

That would drastically Change our approach to Climate Change, since Lack of Respect for the Consciousness inherent in Nature and in supposedly Inanimate Things is what has Created not just Climate Change, but all of the other Abuses of the Planet and Her discounted non-Huper Citizens as well.

So maybe the Age of Aquarius isn’t so much a Mass phenomenon as an Individual one.  Maybe it begins for each of us as soon as we Open our Hearts, Eschew Judgment, and start Respecting All Things, Animate or not.  If so, it could begin today.

Indeed, Marilyn Raffaele’s Arcturian Channeling for today suggests,

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

Allow your spiritual journey to unfold without limitations that consist of nothing more than concepts and beliefs based on the experiences of others for every person’s inner journey is individual and authentic. 

“Allow, by truly accepting that you are not the person you believed yourself to be, but are a Divine Being, an expression of Source Consciousness who formed for yourself a physical body in order to work and live in the denser energies of earth – a three dimensional interpretation of the real body, one of energy and Light.
“You are more than ready to identify with the reality of who and what you are – Self-sustained, Self-maintained Divine Consciousness.  Within ‘Self-sustained and Self-maintained’ exists every Divine Reality, everything ever believed to be lacking – abundance, harmony, wholeness, safety, security,  peace, completeness, intelligence, companionship – ad infinitum – just awaiting conscious recognition.  This is the secret of life, the holy grail, hidden in plain sight where most never think to look – within.
“Divine qualities have always been and can only be fully present within every individual simply because Divine Consciousness is all that exists, manifesting ITself in infinite forms.  Beliefs of duality and separation have created a collective consciousness that believes itself separate from other people, animals, plants and all living things as well as from God.  The ups and downs, good and bad experiences of daily living are simply duality in expression for there is no unexpressed consciousness.
“This is the work – ‘What am I holding as truth in my consciousness?’
“The three dimensional experience is like someone having a large bank account that they are unaware of and so live in poverty and need.  However, each day more people are waking up to realize that much they have always accepted as true regarding every facet of daily life is simply not true.  It is at this point that food, entertainment, activities, and desires,  begin to lose their appeal and we begin our journey toward our as of yet unknown ‘bank account’.”

Then we’d have to Ask, Where’s asteroid Hopi in all this, since Hopi is all about Respect for All Things.  Well, turns out that Hopi is part of the “Bowl of Grace” or Trine Bridges that underlie the Makemake T-Square in the 24 January New Moon chart and help make it Self-Resolving.  Which is to say that, with Uranus/Soul, it’s one foot of the Finger of God to Makemake.  Hopi Conjoins dwarf Planet OR10; in fact, that Conjunction, and Initiation of a New five-year Cycle, is Exact today, as we speak.  A Hopi-OR10 Cycle is about the Voices in our heads that whisper about Respect for All Things

This one begins at 4 Pisces, “Heavy car traffic on a narrow isthmus linking two seasonal resorts: The mobility and intensity of interchanges which make possible and characterize complex social processes.”  Yes, Respect for All Things gets horrendously Complex.  Do I apologize to the Bread, or to the Toaster, when I burn my Toast?  For a start, we definitely need to Listen a lot more!  Sounds like an improvement though, from the previous March 2014 3 Pisces Cycle, “Petrified tree trunks lie broken on desert sand: The power to preserve records of their achievements which is inherent in fully mature cultures.”  Which records are of course tantamount to the Ghosts of the Past.

Marilyn continues…

Never attempt to reclaim the past dear ones, for once the lesson of some experience is complete, it is no longer needed.  As you shift into ever higher states of awareness,  you are no longer in alignment with much of your past.   

Some attempt to re-create the past, clinging to nostalgia for the ‘good old days’ in the belief that these times were better  but which in reality held the same dense and negative issues the world is witnessing today.  In general, the unawakened majority of earlier times surrendered their personal power to others, thus allowing the same dense and negative issues of today to be ignored, denied, or covered up.”
