Portal 9.29 is a repeat of Portal 9.27, but without the Grand Sextile. On September 27, the Moon completed the Grand Sextile. On September 29, the Moon comes around to sit on Pallas, exciting the Pallas Diamond Star. That’s at 9pm PDT, so a good span for the Opportunity to Invoke Miracles and Set Boundaries that will move us toward our Mission would be four hours on either side of that. The Pallas Diamond Star fades around October 1-2.
The Yin Gate
Then from September 30 to October 3, as our adventures in 8-11-Degree Land continue, we have this unusual Configuration…
Two Fingers of God back to back. Never seen that in a chart before. The blue lines (which look black) trace out a Mystic Rectangle, but the Opposition between the Sun and Uranus bisects the two Sextiles on either end. What will we call this Configuration? A Cattle Guard? Do Not Enter? Wrong Way? The US Congress? Fingers of Blame? Dos Equis? A Yin Gate? A Portal of Rebirth? And what does it imply?
Probably the total failure of the Olde-Boy-Network process for organizing the World. If a Finger of God means Pay Attention! then we’re certainly being told to look both ways, which is never a bad idea – Both/And, the Chironean Coin, and the like. Not to mention crossing streets or other borders in Time. Of course a Mystic Rectangle is very positive, and a Finger of Yod is really about Curiosity. So we can talk about the Mystic Rectangle as
Miraculous Release of Karma resulting from Focus on what’s most Sacred to each of us (ie, Chiron, South Node, Saturn/North Node, Vesta).
and the Yods as
How can I reframe my conception of what I most Want, so it aligns with my sense of the Sacred and unites my Ego with “my” Soul Self? (ie, Saturn/North Node, Vesta, Uranus)
Great Spirit, may I please accept Miracles that transform my Limiting Beliefs into Enlightenment, lovingly, gently, rapidly, completely, and with harm to no one? (ie, PIAVA, Chiron, South Node, Sun)
So it’s not like this Cattle Guard configuration is negative, but it’s shape certainly gives us pause, and suggests that we might reconsider our route planning, and maybe even our destination. I mean, the downfall of Colonialism is good, but it will certainly inconvenience a lot of people.
The Mystic Questangles
If we tilt the chart a little each way, we can see that it also includes two “Mystic Questangles” – parallel Quincunxes connected by Semi-Sextiles (one Sign apart) – Vesta-Sun-Chiron-Uranus, and Sun-Saturn/North Node-Uranus-South Node. Wouldn’t hurt us a bit to frame those as Wonderings…
How can I bring Miracles of Light into my Union with my Sacred Soul? (Chiron-Sun-Vesta-Uranus)
When I Focus on my Deepest Longings, how can I invoke my Soul to bring Light into the dark corners of my Karma? (Saturn-North node, Uranus, Sun, South Node)
Notice that the Signs imply big transitions – Pisces-Aries-Taurus (endings-beginnings-foundations) and Virgo-Libra-Scorpio (deconstruction-Other-fearlessness). These are Twelfth-Harmonic Angles – Pattern-Breaking.
The Mushroom Cloud
Notice that Pluto also bisects the upper Trine of the Yin Gate, forming a Grand Trine with the bottom blue (black) line, and a T-Square with the central (red) Opposition. The Vacant sixth point in the now-faded Grand Sextile, Opposite Pluto, is 10 Cancer, “A large Diamond in the first stages of the cutting process,” which Rudhyar hears as “The arduous training for perfection to fully manifest an ideal.” If you’ve a natal planet at 9-11 of Cancer, I hope you’re about to step up and take an active role in helping pour the foundations for whatever socio-political edifice Humans build to replace the one that’s collapsing.
Look at the Angles to Pluto in the Yin Gate chart…
What’ll we call this if not a Toadstool Formation! Maybe a Pagoda? I’ll let you do your own free-associations about what this one means. It certainly implies to me that the Changes coming down are Plutonic in scale. In a Plutonic Change, the Planetary Trance changes, and suddenly everything is different. What stands out in this view, because of its asymmetry, is the Quincunx to the head of the Pallas Diamond Star. That Quincunx might inquire…
I wonder, if enough of us set Boundaries to assert our own Missions, how will that change the World Trance?!?
I like the Uranus-Pluto-Pallas Pythagorean Triangle, because it loops from Challenge to Curiosity to Grace. That’s a formula we would all do well to follow most of the time.
That Other Detail
Oh, then we notice that in the chart above, for September 30, the Moon (Manifestation) is crossing Mars (Action), implying that a good deal of leverage will apply, whatever is going on. Remember anything else about Mars? Comet ISON is passing Mars, on its way in to witness whatever it’s planning to herald as it slingshots around the Sun. So that’s Moon-Mars-ISON there in the Aries section of Leo (new Identities). And that happens to be closely Trine to Eris in the Sagittarius section of Aries (tossing out extraneous features in order to debug the central function of our new creation). So we can expect a good deal of hidden information to surface here in the Yin Gate, that will have a significant impact on the downfall of the Old Order.
