I Wonder What He Really Meant to Say…
Wow, during January and into February we’ve got a whole stable of additional aids to help us transform our lives. By the time we get to March, when the Jupiter Yod returns, we’ll be very different people.
I Wonder How He’s Going to Convince Us of That!
As we move into the simultaneous Vesta and Jupiter Stations (January 20-29), a few complications assert themselves.
Mission, Karma, and Integrity with the Sacred
First, our commitment to our Mission, and our concomitant determination to “atone for our sins” becomes strong here. You probably can’t see that my tongue is in my cheek when I say that. But a suggestion like that is not entirely a parody of religion.
Mars is beginning to work on a Square to the Moon’s Nodes that will be exact on January 24, but gets compounded into a Grand Cross by the Moon on January 27-28.
Simultaneous Vesta and Jupiter Stations will greatly (Station) expand (Jupiter) our need to get into Integrity with our Deepest Heartfelt Beliefs (Vesta), which is to say, atunement with our personal version of the Sacred. Growing up, or being converted, we may well have internalized somebody else’s ideas about what’s Sacred, and we’re more likely to maintain those if they agree in some important ways with our own natural Heartfelt Beliefs. Either way, Guilt is the operating principle. Guilt results when we behave in ways contrary to our own feelings about what’s Sacred. Guilt can feel like we have dirtied ourselves with “sin,” and we need to seek cleansing.
That’s how Karma, which in truth is just inertia – our natural and useful ability to form habits, patterns, and trances – comes to feel like retribution, when we unable or unwilling to make effective amends for our Guilt. All of our “past” lives culminated in “past” Deaths, some of which were Painful. If we lived in a culture similar to current Western culture, Death was also often associated with some sort of “failure” and hence perhaps Shameful. It’s difficult to seek Forgiveness for a Karmic debt that was not incurred in the current lifetime.
We do not decide to Forgive, we discover that we have Forgiven.
So while we can assertively seek Forgiveness from others, it’s more difficult to actively Forgive ourselves. We can however PIAVA Forgiveness for ourself, and that may be our most effective approach.
Karma can arise from Guilt, Shame, Fear, Resentment, or any other strong feeling, and we aren’t even thinking about “Good” Karma here (which can be harder to release than “Bad” Karma). It can also arise from sheer repetition. Power corrupts, and Ritual is powerful. Why do we even care about Karma? Because Karma hides all of the skills we learned in that other lifetime, or an earlier phase of the current lifetime. For instance, as a Child we were constantly in Wonder, and still intimately connected to Source. Then, through repetition, we learned that the World seemed to make sense on other levels – or at least, we learned that adopting their way of making sense of the World pleased the folks we depended on for our Survival, folks we naturally felt a strong sense of Love for, just because we were still in Wonder.
And, recall, the overarching Deva for January and February 2013 is Curiosity.
So for most of us, the “Good Karma” we took on as Children learning our own People’s culture obscures our sense of Wonder and Awe and Curiosity – and our sense of unconditional Love. Karma is what the Moon’s Nodes are about. The North Node, aka the Dragon’s Head or Rahu, represents our Mission – what we came into this lifetime for, the direction that our Soul intends for us to move in. And the South Node (Dragon’s Tail or Ketu) symbolizes the Karma which holds us back from moving toward our Mission. Hiding behind the South Node is the skillset we need to recover in order to move toward our Mission.
Bear in mind that it’s only the logical mind that does duality. The rest of the Universe is focused on the Coin, not the heads or the tails. Especially since most of our Karma is Unconscious, we’re ahead to focus more on the Mission-Limiting Beliefs axis itself, than on either end of it. So we might PIAVA that we
Lovingly and gently and rapidly and completely let go of all Limiting Beliefs that separate us from our Deepest Desires,
for instance, rather than dwelling on our Karma per se, or fantasizing about our Mission. Your Deepest Desires are closely related to your Mission – any Guilt arise when you contemplate that?
Hence, it behooves us to Pay Attention to our Limiting Beliefs at any time when our need to get into Integrity with our Deepest Heartfelt Beliefs is greatly expanded – that is, during a Vesta-Jupiter Station, such as most of the rest of January.
And, as is often the case, the “stars” are giving us a push, in the form of a Mars-Nodes T-Square. A T-Square symbolizes Mastery through Challenge. We know about the Nodes. Mars represents Action. We’re Challenged to take Action to move toward our Mission, and let go of whatever blocks us from that. It’s a T-Square, so don’t expect success, expect learning. Like on Wall Street, it’s not what you earn, it’s what you learn that’s important. I mean, there’s no need to expect lack of success – if you need to have expectations, expect to be surprised.
Guess Who Else Gets Their Golden Apples Involved?
Then, starting on January 23, just in time for the peak of the Mars-Nodes T-Square, Eris begins a Quincunx to the Dragon’s Head. That’s exact on February 8, and goes out of style on February 24. It’s amplified on January 30, just after the culmination of the Jupiter Station, when the Moon Trines the Dragon’s Tail and fills the other Leg of an Eris-Moon-North Node Yod. And also lit up on February 3 when the Moon crosses the North Node, and February 14, when it crosses Eris. Wow, what’s all this mean?
Eris, recall, has an allergic reaction to Denial, which causes her throwing arm to jerk. So basically we’re back to Mobile again with the Memphis Blues…
I wonder how we’ll get out of going through all this twice!
In other words, while Mars will be inspiring us to Act, Eris will be throwing us to the Wolves. But, fortunately for us, it’s all about Curiosity (the Quincunx) and Grace (the Trine), not about Challenge. As we’ve said before, Karma is dead. And that it doesn’t grasp us, we grasp it – we believe it keeps us Safe.
When you encounter a situation where it feels as though you’re about to re-experience unpleasant circumstances, let go of your expectations of unpleasantness.
Like fabric softener, when we’re Conscious enough to do that, we’re likely to find that the unpleasantness is really nothing but a memory, no longer subject to static cling. And those Golden Apples tossed at our feet are almost certain to make us Conscious!
It’s important to remember that Denial is a healthy process that keeps the healthy Ego from getting overwhelmed. The healthy Ego’s function is to keep us Safe, and we’d have a much more difficult time of that if we were unable to triage the threats to our Safety. Neither Denial nor Ego present problems here – what can be difficult to overcome is the inertia that Ego develops. Growth in Consciousness is a process of discrimination – what we’ve seen all along as background, as wallpaper, suddenly becomes something three-dimensional that now demands to be dealt with differently.
We move to a new neighborhood, and suddenly we can trust our neighbors! It takes us a little while to realize it, because our expectations are based on previous experiences that were less sanguine. But once we realize it, we discover a whole closet full of thoughts and behaviors and expectations and reactions that have to be reconsidered and reformulated to meet our new Reality. It goes both ways – we could be moving to a new neighborhood where we can’t trust our neighbors. When Denial steps out of the closet, there is work to do, and it’s called Growth in Consciousness. That stunning lady with her hand on the closet door – that’s Eris.
Then There’s Uranus-Pluto Again
And just as the Mars-Nodes T-Square is exact on January 24, the Moon makes a T-Square with the famous Uranus-Pluto Square and a Grand Trine with Saturn and Chiron. This is powerful. Just as we’re taking a Giant Step forward (Mars-Nodes), we’re Graced (Grand Trine) with an Emotional (Moon) Focus (Saturn) on Miracles (Chiron) and an Emotional (Moon) Challenge (T-Square) to Act (Mars) from our True Self (Uranus-Pluto). Again,
Just as we’re taking a Giant Step forward, we’re Graced with an Emotional Focus on Miracles and an Emotional Challenge to Act from our True Self.
It’s important that the Focus on Miracles is Emotional rather than intellectual, because intellectual Focus would prevent Miracles by holding on to obsolete paradigms, while Emotional Focus will make it easier to bring new paradigms into concrete manifestation. Emotion is the glue that holds Energies into Form.
Then, on January 28, deep in the strength of the Jupiter Station and just as our Vesta Diamond Star forms, Pallas is Initiated by Uranus, beginning a new four-and-a-half-year Cycle. This occurs at 6 degrees of Aries, with the strange Symbol “A square with one side brilliantly illuminated.” A square symbolizes Dominion, or healthy control. The one side brilliantly illuminated is the Soul Download we’ve been working with since last July. Pallas represents boundaries; after January 28, we won’t just be expressing our True Self more completely, we’ll also be defending our right to do just that. We could easily end up changing the people and circumstances in our lives as a result.
Table Salt is Sodium Chloride. Villiaumite is Sodium Fluoride. While Chlorine helps relieve Stress, Fluorine promotes Change. Sodium provides structure and continuity. The perfect mineral to symbolize Fresh Violets in an Ancient Pottery Bowl.
I Wonder What He Said
Whoa, that’s a lot of Energies coming down – in addition to what we had before. I think we’re going to have to integrate all this into one calendar. When we looked at the Vesta Yod that dominates January and February, we were able to summarize a whole lot of material into…
I Wonder how my new Integrity will change as I Focus on this new Trance?
If we had to summarize what we’ve added here, that might be…
I Wonder how my increasing Consciousness will inspire me to Act to support my True Self, move toward my Lifetime Mission, and let go of my Limiting Beliefs?
Busy, busy, busy.
