Kegels 7

February 8, 2019

It’ll probably help to redraw the Sedna Station chart to emphasize the Grand Cross and Kites – even I had trouble following the lines in the Kegels 4 chart, and I drew it…

This chart makes the Haumea-Aletheia-Pallas Rebirth-Truth-Boundaries Finger of God stand out, and reveals that the Haumea-Aletheia-Pallas T-Square is really a Diamond Star, or Self-Resolving Challenge.  A Diamond Star happens when a T-Square and a Finger of God both point to the same place, because the base of the Finger of God (Sedna et al and Chiron) weaves a Nest of Grace (blue lines) under the T-Square, automatically Resolving the Challenge in it.

We can also see that the North Node corner of the Grand Cross (red box) is also a Diamond Star, with Klotho-Mercury (New Insights) and Ixion-Eurydike (Trusting our Forbidden Genius) forming the base of the North-Node Yod.  So we’re likely to gain Wisdom, or at least Information, about our Mission.

This chart also makes it more obvious that any time we find two interlocking Kites, only one corner of a Grand Sextile is missing.  The Vacancy in this Almost-Grand Sextile is 27 Leo, “The Luminescence of Dawn in the Eastern Sky.”  That’s Encouraging, suggesting that we’re getting close to Letting Go of the Darkness remaining in our 3D Worlds.

However, we need to Celebrate that this Energy has passed the Earth and is now following ‘Oumuamua back to Beetlegeese.  We don’t say this often enough, but in the short term, the Energy of planetary Stations and Angles generally increases up till the moment that the event is Exact, and then falls off rapidly.  However, and its a big However, we often Grasp the Energy and don’t Let Go of it.  That’s great when it’s a Positive and Productive Energy, it’s not so great when it’s a Bummer of one kind or another.

Generally, our Experience of a Sedna Station is likely to be closer to Bummer than Positive, unless and until we Harvest the Energy and Convert it from Fear to Power.  I mean, can you honestly say, yet, that you Love the Experience of Fear and Treasure it above all?  Eventually you will, but I’m guessing most of us are still Learning.

So, now that Sedna is happily on its way, it’s very Important to Review what’s going on for us.  Are we Worrying about anything?  Anxious about anything?  Scared about anything?  Those would be typical Sedna hangovers, and there’s a high probability that they’re Fake News.  Let It Go.  Tap It Out.  Shake It Off…

PIAVA What You Want instead.

Of course we all React and Respond Differently to events, but the next while should be a lot easier than the last while, as our next likely Difficult astroevents won’t be felt till mid-April.

Kegels 6

February 7, 2019

As we mentioned early on, the Sedna Station chart also includes a Grand Cross – the globe-spanning box with the “+” inside, drawn in thin red lines.  A Grand Cross represents a coordinated set of Hassles, which complement one another, each Hassle being at least a Distraction from, if not a partial Resolution of, the next Hassle.  Grand Crosses often indicate Success because they result in Skill at Multi-Tasking, and if they’re joined by many blue (Grace) lines, as this one is, it’s a particularly Positive sign.

A Grand Cross is composed of two Oppositions three Signs apart, making, you guessed it, a Cross, or at least a Plus Sign.  One of the Oppositions in this Grand Cross is between the Nodes, which indicate our Lifetime Path.  The South Node, which looks like a stethoscope without the tail, is where we came from (ie, Past Lives, but those are just Mirrors for our Karma and Held Emotions).  The headphones-shaped North Node represents our Mission, or Where We’re Going.

Anything Squaring the Nodes, as the second Opposition does, is an important indicator of how we can Break Through blocks on our South-to-North Node Path.  The second Opposition here joins (or separates) two Stelliums (which are groups of three or more planets) –

  • Uranus-Mars-Eris (Soul-Action-Revelation) is Big, as anything involving the Soul always is.  The Mythological Mars and Eris were siblings.  In Ego astrology, Mars stands for Violence, and Eris for Discord.  Mars was the God of War, and it was Eris who threw a Golden Apple labeled “To the Fairest of Them All” into a banquet of the Big-Name Goddesses, leading to all manner of Competition and Jealousy among them.

The Greeks never bothered to notice out loud in their Stories that if these Ladies just Recognized their Vanity and had a good laugh about it, the incident would have faded into HerStory in a short while.  Greek Mythology prototyped the Patriarchy, so of course female Vanity was Storied as an antithesis to Peace, while Male Vanity was Rewarded with Power, Respect, and License to Rape at will.

This is a second Gender-Balance Issue in the Sedna-Station chart, after the Medusa-Perseus theme introduced by the Fixed Star Algol, which stands behind the Station.  In Ego astrology, Uranus represents Disruption, because as the Soul it Disrupts any Ego Investments that impede the Soul’s Evolution.  So to the Ego, we have here Disruption, War, and Discord.  Know anybody who’s Acting that Out?

To Growth astrology, we have Soul-Action-Revelation, or a time to gain Insight on what we’ve been Denying, and Act to Support our Soul rather than our Ego…

…if we’re capable of it of course.  Is there any sense in which you’re Acting this Out?  I’ll wager there is, and it might be Self-Loving for you to Identify it and Acknowledge yourself for it.  The whole Sedna-Juno theme after all is Opening to the Edges of Consciousness.  Nobody Lives in Fear more than the Ego.

  • The other Stellium is Haumea-Aletheia-Pallas, Rebirth-Truth-Boundaries.  Pallas is already the counterpart to Mars, as she, Pallas Athena, was the Goddess of War, but also the Goddess of Wisdom.  So you have Mars shooting first and Asking Questions later, and Pallas Asking Questions first, and Shooting only as a Last Resort.  Hence, we interpret Pallas as Boundaries.

So this Stellium is about being Reborn into Truth about our Boundaries, meaning that our Conflicts are revealed as Failures of our Ability to set Effective Boundaries.  For those to whom the only Effective Boundary is a Wall, Rebirth into Truth can be a serious assault on the Ego.  We can repeat part of the passage from John Matthews’s The Sidhe: Wisdom from the Celtic Otherworld (pp.49-51) that we quoted earlier this month in the Manifesting in 3D and 5D II post…

” ‘If the spirit within you can speak to the spirit within another, then you can create a link that enables you to combine the two within one.  In this way you can bring about changes that are very subtle.  You could, for example, change your form by establishing a link with a creature.

” ‘So long as it was willing to sustain the exchange between you, you would become the creature and the creature would, in a certain sense, become you.  It is a matter of overcoming otherness.  The identity which we all possess, Sidhe, animal, humankind, is only a matter of outer form. 

” ‘The reality of Spirit is much deeper and more constant, since it does not require form of itself.  This is the importance of reestablishing contact between yourselves and the spirit within everything.  Once you have reconnected your own scattered selves, this should be a natural outcome.‘ “

In this view of the World, our Goal is the Recognition of the foundational Spiritual Truth that We Are All One.  So this second Opposition is very clearly a Contest between Ego and Soul, and between Competitive 3D and Cooperative 5D Manifestation.  Which one will most Support our Mission and further our Evolution?  Which are we Choosing?

Don’t be Embarrassed about either – if we can Identify an arena in our Life where we’re Choosing the 3D-Ego Approach, and Shift it toward 5D-Spirit, that would be a great Boon for our Life, a far greater Boon than Feeling Smug about our 5Dness.  It’s probably there – see if you can Stretch your Consciousness and Find it.

As for those blue Grace lines we mentioned, Uranus-Mars-Eris is the head of a Kite – a Grand Trine (three planets evenly spaced around the Zodiac) with a fourth planet halfway between two of them.  It means Grace, Directed toward the top of the Kite, helping us move to 5D’s Acting to Support the Soul through Revelation of what we’ve been Denying, instead of 3D’s Egoic Struggle to Avoid Discord and Disruption.

In this case, though, the short blue (Sextile – 2 Signs) bar across the top of the Kite creates a Finger of God (Pay Attention!) pointing at the tail of the Kite – Rebirth-Truth-Boundaries, affirming that this end of the Kite is not to be Ignored either!  The base of the Finger of God is made up of Sedna itself and Chiron, the two runaway Stars of the whole chart, further Emphasizing the notions of Unity, soft Boundaries, and Inclusiveness.

There’s a second Kite formed, pointing at Ixion-Eurydike (Trusting our Forbidden Genius), and this one has a Finger of God pointing right at the Top, making this Trust even more Important.  The base of the Finger of God is the Sextile between the North Node (Mission) and Sedna et al (Becoming Conscious of our Unconscious Fears and Learning to Choose the Endings of their Timelines).  In other words, Trusting our Forbidden Genius will not only bring our Fears into Consciousness, it will Allow us to Extinguish them!

In https://roseandcactusquartz.com/2019/01/09/no-more-cherry-picking/, katie suggests…

“Yes, self love is so many different things and all of the things I have mentioned.  It also extends so much deeper because for me it is also about loving and accepting your authentic self a.k.a your intuition and not being afraid to follow it/completely surrender to it.  Your intuition is a gift because it hasn’t been touched by any of the conditioning.  This can also make it scary because since it hasn’t been touched by any of the conditioning, it’s unlike anything you are used to.

“We all have wonderful intuitive gifts at the core.  They may not look like anyone else’s and they aren’t meant to.  Self love includes loving and honoring all aspects of yourself whether it is third dimensional e.g. your body or beyond e.g. your intuition.  I’m sure I couldn’t have read this in an article somewhere if I just looked up what self love meant but there is such a huge difference between reading about it, hearing your friends talk about it and living it.”

Kegels 5

February 7, 2019

I see that more folks than usual are up late looking for answers.  At the risk of sounding oversimple, it probably wouldn’t hurt to review the equations in Einstein’s famous Theory of Relativity…

  • Fear + Courage = Perspective
  • Fear + Breathing = Excitement
  • Fear + Tapping = Grounding
  • Fear + Kegels = Power
  • Anxiety + Poor-Sweethearting = Detachment

I often write late at night, and I used to live in a basement apartment.  While writing I would sometimes feel the hairs on the back of my neck rising, as if someone was just outside my curtained windows looking for an opening.  One night I gathered up my courage and flung open the door – to find a Glorious Full Moon staring at me from the Darkness!

Another time I lived in a creaky old house, and I was alone in the house, in my bedroom with the door shut, when a series of creaks and groans sounded for all the world like someone sneaking up to my door.  Again I flung open the door – and found myself staring at a wardrobe mirror leaning against the wall in the hall, just outside my door.  Now that was scary!  “We have found the Enemy…” as Pogo used to say.

Fear + Breathing is an old equation, which I’ve heard from many reliable sources, and which works well.  Dr. Kim has dozens of excellent variations at…

https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=dr+kim+d%27eramo+anxiety

Many of the videos that are less than two minutes long are pitches for her longer sessions, but most of the longer ones share Powerful Mind-Body techniques, like this one…

Dr. Kim includes Tapping in many of these videos.  One of the first things we do in serious Fear is Leave Our Body.  Tapping (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4) can bring us back in.  In some sense, Leaving our Body is an effective strategy – if someone is about to kill us, we’re already gone, so there isn’t much else they can do to hurt us.  But it may help create a lousy next Lifetime, if we re-enter as a Terrified, Implacable Child.  We have more tools at our disposal when we stay in our Body, or get back In.

I’ve mentioned my Kegels story before, so humor me while I repeat it.  I Learned about Fear and Kegels in a workshop with Jack Schwarz (http://holisticu.org/).  Quite innocently, I went to see the movie Aliens after the workshop.  If you haven’t seen it, the Fear level goes off the charts after a few minutes, and never comes back down till a few minutes before the end of the movie.  Having just Learned it, I was doing Kegels like mad all through the movie – two hours of solid Kegeling!

Jack taught that Kegels Slow Down Time.  If Fear is coming at you at 2mph, it’s a lot easier to handle than at 60mph.  Between the movie theater and where I lived was a mile-long bridge, and after the movie it took me absolutely Forever to cross that bridge!  In that mile I looked at my speedometer maybe ten times, and it kept saying 40mph, but the bridge wouldn’t go away.  It was like being in the Twilight Zone.  I’ve never heard anyone mention Kegels in connection with sports, but I now understand how someone can hit an 80mph curveball.  Sports often refers to it as being “In the Zone.”

And once we’ve determined that our Fear or Agitation is not Present-Moment, or that we aren’t in Imminent Danger, we can say to ourself, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Anxious, aren’t you.”  Or “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Worried about that deadline, aren’t you.”  As Quilless testified in her Comment to Kegels 4, she “experienced notable Shifts” when she Poor-Sweethearted herself.  It’s a remarkably simple and Powerful technique.

We don’t Leave our Body when we Poor-Sweetheart, but we certainly Leave our Ego, or rather, switch Horses to a different Ego.  It’s basically a Shift into Self-Love.  It’s particularly effective with Anxiety and Worry, because those are markers for being Out Of Self-Love and Questioning our own Competence.  Every Experience is an Opportunity to Learn something Life-Changing.  What if we started every morning with “I Wonder What Wonderful Life-Changing Things I’ll Learn Today.”

One thing I Learned today is that I can afford to be even more Assertive about shunting my Shoulds to the side to make more room for my Wannas.  I tried to work on a big project that’s due next week, and got nowhere, wasting several unproductive hours in the process.  Even when I Noticed how much more Anxiety was involved in having to do everything myself, and PIAVAed help from the Great Spirit and Her Designees, I got nowhere!  So I got the message, Gave It Over, and dove Joyfully into my Wannas.

Considering that Sedna (Fear/Power) is Stationary (Strong) within an eighth of a Degree of the Fixed Star Algol (the Eye of Medusa), we need to review the status of Gender Balance in the World this week.  I think this sums it up fairly well…

…with Speaker Pelosi giving the Antichrist a Celebratory Stinkeye for soundbiting compromise while offering none.  Not exactly a Perseus Moment for the Alpha.

Kegels 4

February 5, 2019

We haven’t left that Neptune New Moon chart, since the New and Full Moons impact the weeks following more than the weeks preceding.  But we have dropped, rather unceremoniously, into the unadulterated Sedna Station.  Sedna is about Learning to convert Fear into Power.  We’ve been practicing this for a while, so it may feel like we just aren’t so scared any more.  But what is it you are Feeling?  Maybe having a hard time staying awake, like me?  Emotions, especially our Held Emotions, are tricky.  They can hide behind Other Appearances.  Maybe it’s just your Implant tingling.

Here’s Dan Scranton’s Channeling for today, for example…

https://danielscranton.com/the-e-t-s-are-evolving-with-you-%e2%88%9ethe-9d-arcturian-council/

“We have begun to investigate the different agendas that exist in the current moment amongst the extra-terrestrials who are keeping a close eye on humanity.  We know that most of you are aware that there are well-intentioned e.t.s and there are malevolent ones, and we also want you to recognize that as you evolve, so do they.

“They are not the same e.t.s that they once were, no matter whom we are referring to with that statement.  Therefore, it is time for humanity to start looking at your own fears and prejudices when it comes to your brothers and sisters from other parts of the galaxy.  You will need to come to terms with experiences that you have had in this lifetime and in past lives as you awaken those memories.

“The memories we are referring to here are the ones involving e.t.s who have either knowingly done you harm or unintentionally have created trauma within you.  Remember of course that everything is happening by co-creation and that you would only create an experience that would trigger fear within you because you needed to have that experience.

“So it is time for letting go, and it is time for tuning in to those emotions that come up when you consider being abducted, experimented on, or invaded by extra-terrestrial races.  All of these things have happened at some point in your history as a being who has incarnated all across the galaxy.  It’s time to make peace with that, and it’s time to consider that others can evolve, just like you.

“Now you are still going to need to use your discernment, but that discernment needs to come from your feelings and not from the facts that you have compiled.  So prepare yourselves for much more contact, and do it now, before the ships start landing and you have to face those fears all at once.  This method that we are proposing is going to make everything easier on you as you shift and ascend.”

This second example is an advertisement, and I’m not specifically endorsing Restore™ (though I do use it), but the text is a very concise description of the real threat that Glyphosate poses to our health, and what we can do about it.  It’s easy to associate Glyphosate (RoundUp) with GMO foods, but it’s less known that Glyphosate is used almost universally on non-GMO Grains and Sugars…

And what have you been reading lately about Global Warming?  I often catch myself thinking, “You guys better get your act together.  I’m too old to be around for most of the carnage, but many of you aren’t!”  And then I think about my next Lifetime and where and when that might be.  And really, how many other Parallel Lifetimes is my Soul Living right now, and what are my age and circumstances in those?

When you read about the impacts of Global Warming that are already happening around the World, are you like me more readily Empathic with some folks and circumstances than with others?  That’s probably an excellent clue about where your Other Personas might be hanging out.  For instance, some of those Tropical Beaches have my name on them.  You can read it in the Sand when you kick the plastic aside.

https://www.permaculture.co.uk/news/extinction-rebellion-rebellion-day-london

A logical place to start discussing the Sedna Station is its Conjunction (Merger) with asteroids Lachesis (Conscious Choice of Timelines) and Juno (the Growing Edge of Consciousness) and its Waning Square (Challenge to Let Go) from Klotho-Mercury (Awareness that we need to Start Over).  Or the Grand Cross to the Nodes (Threats to our Survival and Mission) – that’s the biggest Zodiac-Spanning Configuration.  So let’s come back to those later, and start with the Chiron T-Square…

The Chiron T-Square (red triangle) and its many emoluments (blue and green lines) are drawn in heavy lines.  The basic Challenge is pretty Profound – Accepting our Unlimited Positive Potential (dwarf planet Chaos) by Trusting that our Forbidden Genius (Eurydike-Ixion) will know how to Transcend Despair and find Miracles (Chiron).

The primary Gift to make this Challenge Easier is the Truss Bridge (Double Trine Bridge, blue lines) formed by Mercury-Klotho (Acknowledging that we’re at a Cultural Dead End and we need to Begin Anew) and Uranus-Mars-Eris (Listening to the Soul’s Assertive Calls to Action around What We’ve been Denying).  If it’s been increasingly Difficult to keep your Forbidden Genius in the closet lately, this may be why.  You don’t understand the Relationship between your Forbidden Genius and your Mission, but your Genius does.

You’ll notice too that the T-Square is holding a Parasol (Gift of Grace) – the small triangle of blue lines that also point to Chiron, from the South Node (Held Emotions) and Stationary Sedna itself, with its companions Lachesis and Juno (Becoming Aware of our Unconscious Fears and Choosing Alternatives).  Our Held Emotions are going to be the most serious of our Unconscious Fears, almost by definition.  If we’re Feeling Fatigued or vaguely Sour, we’re probably sitting on the tip of these Nightmare Icebergs.

While this is a great deal of Grace, it’s also Complex, and doesn’t specify a definite Path to Transcendence.  But the chart also says, Clearly, Pay Attention! – to the Haumea-Aletheia-Pallas Stellium (the Truth about the New Boundaries we’re being Reborn into) at the bottom of the chart.  The big green wedge that points to it is called a Finger of God, and it means Pay Attention!

At the base (upper, wider end) of the Finger of God are both Chiron and Sedna et al.  Have you been Learning that Karma is Dead, and that if you Choose not to Grasp it when it Threatens, it’ll get bored and go bother someone else?  Even if you’ve only been practicing that on minor Self-Sabotages, if you’ve seen any Success at all with it, or with Poor-Sweetheart, or with Tapping, or with PIAVA and its many corollaries, then you’ve Learned that whatever you’ve been most Hesitant to Approach, may just turn out to be No Big Deal.

Our Held Emotions are probably like that.  Sure, it was the shits when those Palefaces in the covered wagon shot up your whole family.  But guess what.  That was then, this is Now.  The chart Invites us to PIAVA that our Held Emotions be Exposed as the Paper Tigers that they are, mere Shadows.  All you need to Eliminate Shadows is to cast Light on them.  If you use Light from all sides now, from up and down, but still somehow – Wait, wrong song! – you can Eliminate Shadows completely.  That’s what the Unseen Therapist does.

We might try PIAVAs like…

“I Wonder if it’s Possible to just Lovingly and Gently and Rapidly and Completely Blow Away my Held Emotions, as if they Never Were.”

“Ganeshi My Love, Please Remove All Obstacles to my Effortlessly Letting Go of my Held Emotions Completely.”

Held Emotions, if you’re new to the concept, are those which you’d rather Die than Feel.  Your thoughts are “I’d rather Die than Experience that again.”  But, as our Poor-Sweethearts have so clearly Illustrated, our Identity is very Flexible.  So the real situation is “I’d rather Die than Experience that again.”  In other words, you’re Inviting an Ego Death, or Shift in your Identity.  When we Resist Ego Death, it gets hard.  But it’s the Resistance that makes it hard – there’s no reason why an Ego Death can’t be as easy as just Choosing a Different Approach, or changing your pants.

If you’re new here, you might want to look up…

Use the Category list on the right to look up any other term that’s not clear; if there isn’t a Category list on the right, find it on the home page at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/.

Even if you aren’t Feeling what you usually refer to as “Fear,” you can still use Kegels.  See what happens when you do.  Different people can have very different names for the same Emotions.  We all Experience the World Uniquely.

In the same way that Cold is the Absence of Heat, Fear is the Absence of Love – from that Perspective neither Cold nor Fear actually Exist; they’re just very low levels of Warmth and Love.  Fear is Cold and Hard; Love is Soft and Warm.  It’s good to remember that whenever there’s Discomfort in your Body – nothing Heals quite like Love.  Notice when you’re Hardening yourself against Pain or Discomfort, and Soften and Warm instead.

And while I’m not so sure about the Alligators, I otherwise wholeheartedly Agree with Dale…

https://dalegreenearts.gallery/2019/01/28/john-dor-prairie-home/

“I returned to this place and the place is the same but I am not.  And the thing I discovered is that we are what we love, not what we fear.  But here is the unique miracle of our existence.  Of all the creatures that have ever risen and fallen on this tiny round stone traveling through nothing – we are able to choose.  Imagine an alligator deciding one day to be a vegetarian.  It can’t happen.  Alligators don’t have the capacity to choose.

“But we do.  We can choose.  We can wake up every day and choose.  So what do we choose?  Some choose anger, some bitterness, some loneliness.  But some,  far too few, choose peace and happiness and love.  And every day we all have the same day, the same now, the same choice.  No matter what our outer circumstances, we can choose how we regulate the inner world where we live.  And today I choose here.  And I choose now.  And I choose love.”

Did you know that Antarctica is On Fire?

Confusion and Growth

February 4, 2019

The New Moon isn’t the Star of its own chart here.  Neptune is, as should be obvious from a glance at the chart…

Neptune is not only the focus of a Challenging T-Square (the red triangle), but also the apex of an Epiphanic Mjölnir (the big orange wedge).  The New Moon does provide an Easy Path (Trine Bridge, the blue lines) through any Difficulties that might arise.  What does this Easy Path look like?  As we suggested in the previous post, find it by Staying as True as you can to your uncontaminated Deepest Desires.

The orange Octiles and Trioctiles dominate the chart.  Nothing like the vibrant Grand Octile in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/01/18/self-judgment-and-self-love-iv/, but impressive nonetheless.  Octiles are about Adjustments, Trioctiles about Bringing Things Back into Balance.  We can use some of that.  A lot of it actually.

The Neptune Mjölnir combines two Trioctiles on a Square (Challenge, red line at the base) between Boundaries (Pallas) and the Life Force (Varuna) – there are places in our Life where we Resist certain kinds of Experience, and the Resistance eats away at our Life Force.  We Resist these Experiences because they Confuse us, and we’re very Vulnerable when we’re Confused.

Folks might try to tell you that this Vulnerability is exactly what will Heal, but you won’t Hear it.  But there’s a good chance that you’ll encounter Insights in the next few weeks that you will be able to Hear.  It’s likely that these Insights will have something to do with Self-Love (Sappho), and will help you shift your Identity from Defending your Masks to Supporting your Soul (Uranus).

The New Moon itself is Octile to Chiron (Despair/Miracles) and to Venus (Values), signifying that we’re due to be Adjusting our Values so they are more Invigorating (or even Thrilling) than Limiting.  If you get stuck, use your Poor-Sweethearts“You Poor Sweetheart, you won’t let yourself Enjoy what you Really Want, will you.”  You Believe you’re a Victim of this, that someone else is somehow the Perp.  But they aren’t, it’s you.

That’s Hard, because you can’t just Betray your own Values.  They’re there for good reasons.  Besides Letting other people Down you’d feel like you’ve Let yourself Down.  So what to do?  Well, you can Change the Subject after you Poor-Sweetheart yourself about Depriving yourself of Enjoyment.  Your mind can’t solve this or any other Neptune problem, and it’ll try damn hard to do it.  Sound familiar?

Poor-Sweethearting and then Changing the Subject is a Powerful Invitation for your Intuition to suggest Alternatives to what you’ve been doing all of your Life, Alternatives that your mind will never think of.  You may not even see them as related to your Resistance to Self-Love, till long after you’ve Opened Up to them.  If it’s hard to Change the Subject because your mind keeps returning to the “Problem,” go deeper.  “You Poor Sweetheart, you can’t Change the Subject, can you.”  Then Change the Subject.  The mind isn’t easy to outsmart, but Patient Persistence helps.

Manifesting in 3D and 5D II

February 3, 2019

This conversation between John Matthews and his Sidhe guest is an excellent summary of 5D Manifestation…

” ‘Everything has Spirit.  You have Spirit.  Stones have Spirit.  The very air has Spirit.  Thus, if the spirit within you can speak to the spirit within another, then you can create a link that enables you to combine the two within one.  In this way you can bring about changes that are very subtle.  You could, for example, change your form by establishing a link with a creature.

” ‘So long as it was willing to sustain the exchange between you, you would become the creature and the creature would, in a certain sense, become you.  It is a matter of overcoming otherness.  The identity which we all possess, Sidhe, animal, humankind, is only a matter of outer form. 

” ‘The reality of Spirit is much deeper and more constant, since it does not require form of itself.  This is the importance of reestablishing contact between yourselves and the spirit within everything.  Once you have reconnected your own scattered selves, this should be a natural outcome.

“So you are saying that what we call ‘magic’ is the manipulation of spirit?

” ‘Not manipulation.  We are all part of a process that has no end – though I understand that this may be a difficult concept for your kind, who see yourselves as finite beings.  Part of the process is to establish the deepest possible link between all things, all aspects of life.

” ‘When this occurs, it occurs naturally, and the cooperation between each aspect of Spirit is such that there is no manipulation involved.  You might wish to raise a heavy object such as a stone.  To do so you need the agreement of the stone and the fellowship of the stone with your own spirit.  Together, in harmony, the stone may then be moved. 

” ‘In this sense all things that are incarnate are part of the whole – many among your kind have already recognized this, but have been unable to move to the next stage.  Once the understanding of this relationship is truly in place, you must be ready to move forward by applying the knowledge to your lives.’

“How can we do that?

” ‘I am aware that this is a difficult thing for you to grasp.  Try to think of everything around you as sharing in a larger state of being that is all inclusive.  This does not mean that you have no individual reality, any more than it means that for us. 

” ‘Simply, it gives us both access to a level of reality that is different from the one you experience daily.  One of your wise men once said that all form was illusion and in some way he was right.  The outer shape assumed by all beings at the moment of incarnation is far more subtle than is generally understood by your race.’ “

–John Matthews, The Sidhe: Wisdom from the Celtic Otherworld, pp.49-51.

So, if we’re thinking about Manifestation, we have to ask, Where is dwarf planet Makemake in all this?  Well, it stuttered a bit between Virgo and Libra in 2013 and 2014, before moving into Libra “for good” (ie, for about thirty years) in mid-2015.  The Aries-Virgo half of the Zodiac is about Being.  The Libra-Pisces half is about Relationship.  Makemake is now at 6 Degrees of Libra, so it’s already moved through the Libra and Scorpio Duads (two-and-a-half Degrees) and is in the Sagittarius Duad.

The Libra Duad of Libra (first 2½ Degrees) is about Relating to Relationship, or Discovering the Existence of Other as Distinct from Self.  The Scorpio Duad (second 2½ Degrees) is about Relating to the Truth of Other rather than the Exterior Form.  The Sagittarius Duad (5 to 7½ Degrees) concerns Letting Go of our Preconceptions and Expectations so we can move more deeply into Relating to the Spirit of Other.  Is this relevant to the Now?

Yes…

Tomorrow’s New Moon features an Almost-Grand Quintile – four of five planets that would be more or less evenly spaced around the Zodiacal Loop.  The Quintile is about Learning and Teaching, and a Grand Quintile indicates unusually good Opportunities for Learning.  When a Zodiac-spanning Configuration is Almost, lacking one corner, we have the Opportunity to harvest the Boon of the complete Configuration by Consciously Adding the Energy of the Vacancy.

In this case that’s 13 Taurus, “A porter carrying heavy baggage.”  That would be the 3D part.  Yes, we certainly need to deal with Heavy Baggage – our Karmic Held Emotions – to the extent that we haven’t already.  Otherwise, as John’s Sidhe friend pointed out, it’s not going to be about Heavy Lifting any more.

The four extant corners of the Almost-Grand-Quintile are the North Node (our Lifetime Mission), Makemake (Manifestation), Jupiter (Expansion), and our recent (1 February) Sign-Changer Vesta (Beliefs).  So the Heavy Baggage we’ll be Confronting is our Emotional Beliefs – kind of an aggressive introduction to Vesta in Pisces.  Vesta asks, Who Do You Worship?  Who do you most Respect?  Who provides your Bottom-Line Guidance?  Do you ever have any Doubt?

You can see the connection to the New Moon in the chart – the New Moon (Celebrating New Energy) makes a Trine Bridge (Easy Path) across the Jupiter-Sappho/Asbolus Opposition (Expanding our Intuitive Self-Love).  How does our Intuitive Self-Love Relate to our Beliefs?  As we’ll see in the next post, this Opposition is the base of a Neptune (Confusion) T-Square (Challenge), and this Challenge to our Appreciation of Confusion – as the first stage of Growth, is the Power Point of the New Moon.

The New Moon is at the Midpoint of Aquarius.  The Midpoints of the Fixed Signs (Aquarius, Leo, Taurus, Scorpio) are represented by the four Royal Stars of Persia, Aquarius by the Star Formalhaut, which…

“contains a touch of the mystic, a sense of magic, and inspires high ideals or lofty visions… it bestows charisma, beauty, or perfect harmony.  An individual [or a New Moon] with Formalhaut strong in their natal chart will have to clash with mainstream thought in order to achieve these ideals.

“If the ideal is a noble cause, the person will find personal happiness or success for the benefit of the collective.  However, if the ideals or dreams are corrupt in any way, then the downfall is total.  The challenge of people strongly influenced by Formalhaut is to maintain the purity of their ideals or dreams.”

–Bernadette Brady, Brady’s Book of the Fixed Stars, p.197

Such is the nature of our Adventures with our Held Emotions and our Response to Confusion.  Our Concepts about what makes the World tick are among the most fundamental of our Beliefs, and Growth in Consciousness is not possible until we Transcend those Limitations.  Resisting the Temptation to Figure It Out, and Learning to Bask in Confusion for its own sake, as an Emotion to be Embraced rather than Squelched, Controlled, Corrected, Suppressed, or Overruled, is Task Number One here.

 

Kegels 3

February 1, 2019

The other elements of Big Grace in the Juno-Sedna chart, and the upcoming Sedna Station chart, are two Diamond Stars.

A T-Square (drawn as a red triangle) is made up of two planets Opposite one another, with a third at their Midpoint (ie, three Signs from each).  It means a Challenge.  The ultimate aim is to become Adept at this Challenge, but it’s via the School of Hard Knocks.  If we haven’t Figured Out what we’re supposed to be Learning, we usually Experience a T-Square as Long-Suffering Frustration.

I mean, how would we know, if we didn’t have our chart drawn up?  And even then, an Ego astrologer would concur that we were screwed.  We’d just think it was horrible Karma!

That’s what I thought about my own T-Squares until I Realized that the Fourth Harmonic (a Square goes one Fourth of the way around the Zodiac) is about Dominion – Healthy Control, Mastery!  (Or, without the possible hidden implication of Slavery as the inverse of Mastery, Adeptness.)  Dominion is the Fourth Principle in the Tarot’s Major Arcana.

A natal T-Square is a Life-Long graduate seminar, where there are no real Answers, only better Questions, better because they lead to a fuller understanding of the Depth and Breadth of the Issue that the T-Square presents.  So when we Reframe it thus, each Bummer in our Life-Long series of Bummers, has taught us a new Principle, Subtlety, Corollary, Insight, or Breakthrough about the subject of our seminar.

Each time we thought we were going to get it “Right” this time!  We thought we could make External Reality match our Perfect Pictures.  And every time we Failed.  But each time we Learned more about it.  Each time we got a little closer to What We Want, though many times we’ve taken wide Detours into places we didn’t know were Related until we went there.  Truth is, we’ll never Achieve our Perfect Pictures, because Perfect Pictures are 2D Snapshots, while Real Life is a Hologram in an Infinite number of Dimensions.

Achieving our Perfect Pictures would be like trying to Grok the nature of a Butterfly by pinning it to a board.  The hardest thing about a T-Square is that we can’t give it up.  Dropping the class is not an Option, because What We Want is an Irrevocable Compulsion.  It’s What We’re Here For.  We often settle for an Addiction – we get so Frustrated by our Lack of Success, which we take as a Personal Failure, that we divert ourself with the small but Satisfying Pleasure that we can get from Sugar, Alcohol, MJ, Sex, or worse.  It’s Temporary, but by the time we Indulge, we forget our Frustration.

Let’s take an Example.  For instance, suppose we hypothesize someone who has a Life-Long Challenge (T-Square) to Figure Out how to set up Effective Boundaries (Haumea-Pallas-Aletheia) between their Soul (Uranus) and their Ego so they can Approach their LifeTime Mission (North Node).  Oh, gosh, that’s one of the T-Squares in the Juno-Sedna chart, isn’t it.  What a coincidence…

The North Node is symbolized by those earphones in the lower right.  The red triangle that points to the earphones is the T-Square.  Well, we know already that our Mission is like Differential Equations or Calculus – we never really get there, we just keep cutting the distance in half between us and it…

If What We Want is Water and it’s always just out of Reach, that’s the Picture of Frustration.  We need to Reframe it – we may never get any Water in this Lifetime, but we’re sure going to Learn everything there is to Learn about Striving for it.  And probably, literally, Die trying.  Which is Cool – we was gonna Die anyway, so why not Die for a Cause.  And there aren’t any Causes more important to us than What We Want.

So, this particular “Challenge to Figure Out how to set up Effective Boundaries between our Soul and our Ego so we can Approach our LifeTime Mission” isn’t Life-Long, it’s only temporary.  We’re using the Mean Nodes, and they move about a Degree-and-a-half per month, so this Uranus-Haumea-North Node T-Square will only be with us for a few months.  But meanwhile, here in the context of wresting Power out of Fear (Sedna Stationary), finding a Boundary  between Soul and Rebirth that Serves our Mission is a Challenge that Confronts us.

For instance, the best Boundary here between Soul and Mission might be no Boundary, and Surrendering our Sovereignty to that Degree might Scare the Living Daylights out of our Ego, not to mention how it could Frighten our Dependents, as we might be Compelled to Abandon them for some abstruse Project like Saving Antarctica for the Penguins.  Or it could Drive us to Drink.  Here’s how some folks might do these Boundary Games…

“Full of anticipation, we set off and when we had adjusted our consciousness to the high vibration, we found ourselves in the Fairy sector.  However serious the reason for our visit may be, first we must play.  This is a necessity and not a frivolity because, until we have rushed about as fast as we can, there remain clinging to us, Earth ideas, and until we are rid of them, we are unable to concentrate.  What fun this period is.

“We burst and reform only to disintegrate again almost immediately.  In this destruction, the atoms of our bodies change their positions and one of our amusements is to stop them from rejoining those of the person to whom they rightfully belong.  Of course we can never prevent them from doing this for long, but sometimes we keep them poised between the two of us, they look so funny that we begin laughing, our concentration vanishes until we are once more complete and ready to burst again.”

–Normus, “Travels,” in Daphne Charters, Forty Years with the Fairies, p.209.

So, that’s a T-Square.  But weren’t we supposed to be talking about Diamond Stars?  Oh, ok, I remember now.

See the two green lines rising from the North Node?  That’s called a Finger of God, and it means Pay Attention to this!!  Some folks also call it a “Yod.”  In these charts, red lines represent Challenge, green Curiosity, and blue Grace.  Notice that when we connect the Yod to the T-Square, a web of blue lines is created on the other side of the central Opposition – literally, a Bowl of Grace.

This is a Diamond Star, and it means that the T-Square is a Self-Resolving Challenge because of the Grace in the blue lines, which make a double Trine Bridge, or two Easy Alternative Paths, across the T-Square.  Like an escalator up the side of the Cliff we Expected to have to climb.  So our two escalators in this Diamond Star are Suspending Disbelief or Allowing our Beliefs to Shift (Klotho-Vesta), and Trusting our Forbidden Genius (Eurydike-Ixion), which will require a Shift in our Values (Venus).

If we are to Trust the Genius of our True Self, we’re probably going to have to Give Up some Obedience to the Values of our former Masters or Programmers.  Recognizing that they were Doing the Best They Knew How at the Time, we just know that this is the time when we have to substitute Self-Trust for the relative Security of their Truth.

This is a Diamond Square, so this just happens, it’s not something we have to work hard at, though we may have to work a bit at Surrendering our Resistance to it – at least enough to enable us to Notice the Difference.  After all, the overall Work this week is Growth of Consciousness – Juno-Sedna.

So the Bottom Line of this Diamond Star is that both our Beliefs and our Values will Shift, or have already Shifted.  Have you Noticed any of that in your own Experience yet?  This is a big Change in our Identity, since Values and Beliefs are the Foundations of Who We Are.  And an Effortless Shift.  We haven’t mentioned Nemesis or Ego Death once, and they aren’t involved.

Well, not in an obvious way anyway.  Nemesis is Octile (Adjustment) to Mars (Action) and Trioctile (Rebalancing) to Pluto (the Underlying Energy).  Without the Diamond Star that would be enough to create some Ego Death, and at any rate no Change of Identity takes place without some Ego Death.  Death doesn’t have to be Unpleasant, however, if we Take Ourselves Lightly, like the Angels do.  That Mars-Pluto Square is about An Angel with a Harp, recall.

If you’ve Noticed your Beliefs, Values, Identity Shifting in the last several days, have you Noticed any signs of Ego Death? Getting Lost in a familiar place, for instance, where it feels like part of you knows exactly where you are, but another part is Experiencing it as Brand New.  That’s an important kind of Shift to Notice as we Grow our Consciousness.

The second Diamond Star (notice the double green lines emanating from the point of the T-Square) is focused on the Stellium in Libra – Haumea-Aletheia-Pallas, or Rebirth of True Boundaries.  If our Boundaries are Out of Balance with our Soul or our Goals or our Mission, we won’t know Who to Trust, or what to eat for breakfast, or when to Meditate and when to Act.  So this is a Big Deal.

The roots of this Yod are Chiron (Despair/Miracles) and Juno-Sedna itself (Bringing our Fears into Consciousness).  As we’ve said, when our Fears are Unconscious, they Control our Life.  In order to Overcome them (or rather, Love them into becoming the Power that they really are) we need first to Bring them into Consciousness.  Despair is totally appropriate when our Unconscious Fears rule our Lives, because we’re Powerless against them.

But fortunately, Chironean Despair is easy to fix – alls we gotta do is Poor-Sweetheart ourself.  We say to ourself, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Overwhelmed, aren’t you.”  That statement Shifts our Identity from Despair to Compassion.  If we don’t Change the Subject afterwards though, we may get sucked back into Despair (though we could always Poor-Sweetheart ourself again).

Once we slip out of our stiff, scratchy Despair shirt and pull on our soft, warm Compassion hoodie, we can Change the Subject – do something else entirely, and divert our Attention.  That will allow the Overwhelming Challenges that Triggered our Despair to Resolve themselves on their own, without the Interference of our Anxiety.  After all, We are now Compassion, not Worry.

All Prayers are Answered, and a “You Poor Sweetheart…” is a Prayer of sorts, a Surrendering of the Overwhelm to your Higher Power.  It’s also a Loving Moment like Gary Craig talks about in his Unseen Therapist process (https://www.emofree.com/), which is a very Powerful Healing technique to Learn.  It’s also Easy to Learn if you’ve been PIAVAing for a while (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/).

We don’t talk about them often, but the seven short green lines are also important, and you can take advantage of them in any chart you find them in.  They’re called “Unxes” because an “Unx” is one twelfth of something.  The Twelfth Harmonic is about Pattern-Breaking.  That’s one of the most Powerful Skills we can develop.  After all, Karma is just Patterns, so if we can Break those Patterns, we’re Golden.

In fact, the South Node (Karma itself!) has two Unxes, one to Trusting our Forbidden Genius (Aletheia-Ixion-Venus), and the other to Suspending Disbelief (Klotho-Vesta).  The implication is that these two Intentional Acts will shake a good deal of our Karma and Self-Sabotage Loose.  We won’t turn that down.

The other Unxes and Opportunities for some relatively Easy Pattern-Breaking are…

  • Suspending Disbelief to Despair/Miracles (Chiron).  An excellent Example of that – when you encounter what feels like a familiar Bummer about to repeat, Suspend your Belief that it’s Inevitable.  It AintJust don’t Grab it.  Just slip out the back, Jack; just get off the bus, Gus – there must be fifty ways to Leave your Karma.  And don’t for a moment think that your Kinship with your Karma isn’t a Love Relationship – how long have the two of you been Joined at the Hip after all?
  • Despair/Miracles to your Soul (Uranus).  What keeps you from Uniting your Soul and your Ego?  You don’t even need to know it, you can just say to yourself, “You Poor Sweetheart, You aren’t Identifying with your Soul as much as you could be, are you.”  Then just Change the Subject and Enjoy!
  • Soul to Consciousness of Fear (Juno-Sedna).  I mean, what would your Soul have to Fear, anyway?  Certainly not Annihilation, it’s Immortal by definition.  Abandonment might Sadden Her, but even that’s Doubtful, as She surely knows that Getting Lost is the first stage of Getting Found.  We may have already Resolved all of our Sedna Station Issues with that last Poor Sweetheart.  Wouldn’t that be great!
  • Consciousness of Fear to Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos).  Of course we’ve already Kegeled our Fear into Power, but even then, Unlimited is pretty Scary.  Reminds us of when we used to Imagine walking off the Edge of the Flat Earth, or those Nightmares we used to have about the Grand Canyon.  Better to PIAVA our Unlimited Potential.  How else will we shake it free from our existing Limiting Beliefs?
  • Unlimited Potential to our Mission (North Node).  How does that Feel – Exciting?  If it doesn’t, Breathe.  Better?  You should be Feeling a Surge of Energy up your Spine.  We may even be Wondering, what the Hell is my Mission, anyway?  If so, great – Wonder is a hidden PIAVA (don’t try to Figure It Out though – that will Limit it).  You could make it PIVAWA if you want, or even WIPAVA.

It’s really pretty Simple math – Fear Plus Breathing Equals Excitement, Fear Plus Kegels Equals Power.  We’ll probably get lots of Opportunities to practice both over the next week.

Kegels 2

January 31, 2019

We’ve a few astroevents between now and then, but it would probably be a good idea to go right into looking at the 7 February Station (Strong) of Sedna (Fear/Power).  First though, let’s go ahead and finish the Juno-Sedna interpretation we started in the previous post, Kegels 1.  The two charts are similar anyway; same Patterns, different planets.  In the intervening week, the Moon will move about three Signs, the inner planets about 7 Degrees, Mars about 4 Degrees, and the asteroids about 2 – enough to swap some of the Players in the Patterns.

We said earlier, “There is also much Grace in the [Juno-Sedna] chart (Grand Trines and Kites, Diamond Stars).”

A Grand Trine means Dumb-Luck Blessings.  Grand Trines are so full of Freebies that if we’re born with one, we soon end up Believing that other people are Stupid because they aren’t harvesting the same Bounty that we harvest so Effortlessly.  While Ego Astrology Celebrates the Grand Trine as Great Grace, I interpret it as Arrogance – until we get enough Experience to Heal it by grokking that everyone has their own Skillset, usually Different from ours, and that this Difference Powers Teamwork and everything larger than what one Person can do working Alone.

Sports are used as a vehicle in schools for Teaching Teamwork.  The lack of it in the Antichrist’s house is a marker of his Unhealed Grand Trine.

If you Struggle to Manifest what you see Others Creating Easily, it may be because they have a natal Grand Trine and you don’t.  But that kind of Manifestation can be Learned.  And what we Learn is not lost when we Die.  The Aptitudes you were Born with you worked hard to Earn in Earlier Lives.  If you Lavish yourself Enjoying the Benefits of a Grand Trine and never Learn that it’s not your Innately Superior Ego that brought you Wealth, you won’t take Positive Karmic Habits with you into your next Adventure.

Karma as Inertia is easy to mistake for Karma as Retribution.  No one is being Punished for Living Large – they just never developed the Habits to Sustain it because they didn’t need to.  If you have to Learn how to Manifest, then you get to take those Habits with you.  Grand Trines can apply to specific areas of Life – just for a start there are Water (Emotion) Grand Trines and Earth (Matter) Grand Trines.

The Antichrist, a self-proclaimed Genius who turned 73 today, gets his Arrogance partly from an Unhealed Grand Trine in Air (Mentality).  Mentality is Duality – Me Smart You Dumb.  Once one understands that Opposites are actually Equal, there’s no Limit to one’s Prevarication, especially if, like the Antichrist, you have two Strong planets Stationary and Conjoined in Libra (Relationship to Other).  That’s where he gets his agile but forked tongue.  He understands Duality in Me-Other; he’s too Arrogant to apply it to his own Behavior except in Win-Lose.

“I love to crush the other side and take the benefits… You hear lots of people say that a great deal is when both sides win.  That is a bunch of crap.  In a great deal you win – not the other side.  You crush the opponent and come away with something better for yourself.”

–Robert Wright, quoting the Antichrist, in “Make Globalism Great Again,” Wired Magazine, Feb. 2019, p.64.

He’s performing a Service, showing us how Destructive Competition really is, so we can be more Excited about shifting to Collaboration.  The Antichrist’s relative Popularity, while debatable and apparently declining, illustrates the prevalence of Arrogance and Unwillingness to Examine one’s Karmic Patterns in the US.  But the very decline in this Popularity tells us that People are Noticing and Learning.  Many will Learn that their Arrogance is just Ego, not Superiority, and begin looking for Alternatives.

The Grand Trine in the Juno-Sedna chart – the big blue chart-spanning triangle (see previous post) – is also an Air Grand Trine.  The Mythological Trickster Archetype is an Air Pattern.  So we can Expect intellectual Arrogance or Facility here, from ourself and from others.  If we’ve always wanted to Learn Ease with the intellectual Perspective, this is a good time to Study it.  If you’re patting yourself on the back for being so smart, know it’s not You, it’s just a Moment in the Infinity of the Universe that you happen to be Experiencing.

The Libra (Debate, Charm) side of this Grand Trine is the Stellium (group of three or more planets) of Haumea (Rebirth), Pallas (Boundaries), and Aletheia (Truth).  While the Antichrist may or may not see this Rebirth of Boundaries between Truth and Lies, many others have been, and will yet.  We have to remember that this chart also “Challenges us to see All Apparent Setbacks as the Opportunities that they really are,”  as flags that indicate we’ve stepped off the Path of the Soul, that we should check our Heart’s Compass.

The Gemini (Flexibility, Dissolution) corner is occupied by dwarf planet Chaos – Unlimited Potential.  Truth is in the Heart, not the mind (another thing that the Antichrist is Teaching us by such a sterling Example of how not to do it), and everyone’s Heart is Different. So there are no Lies in Politics, only Different Perspectives and Different camps.  The problem isn’t Lies, it’s the Fear that someone you Disagree with will kill you over it.  Since you’re dealing with Hupers, this is quite Possible, and it’s a valid Fear.

But this is Juno-Sedna – bringing Fear into Consciousness.  So Tap It Out.  Even if its True, you need to be Neutral about it so you can have a cool head when Strategizing your Defenses.

The Aquarius (Cultural Norms) corner contains asteroids Vesta (Beliefs) and Klotho (Beginnings), indicating that many will have their Beliefs revised, quite possibly without even knowing it’s happening.  A Grand Trine is so Effortless we may not even Notice that it’s going on.  It may not be that the Antichrist can’t admit Error – he may not Notice his own Errors!  If you hear his former Supporters lying that “they knew it all along,” let it be.  Be Grateful that they’ve come to their senses, we don’t care how.

So we might characterize the entire Grand Trine as Easing the Dissolution of old Cultural Boundaries.  Crises are also Opportunities, so we can use this Social Disruption to Step Out into Who We Really Are more than we usually would.  With everyone else occupied by the Chaos in their own Lives, no one will be watching us…

That dude who keeps standing up in front of the camera is only following instructions from your mother.

A Kite is a Grand Trine with a growth on one side – a fourth planet Midway between two of the three in the Grand Trine.  It means that the fourth planet may become the Focus of the Benevolent Energy in the Grand Trine.  This Grand Trine makes two Kites.

 In the first one, the fourth “planet” is a Stellium of Ixion (our Forbidden Genius), Eurydike (Trust), and Venus (our Values).  Ixion represents our Ability to break the Cultural Mold.  Our Willingness to do so depends on our Temerity – and perhaps our Arrogance.  But the indication is that this Grand Trine may bend our Values in such a way that we Trust our own Genius more.

 The second Kite is formed by Uranus – your Soul.  As old Cultural Boundaries Dissolve, it’s likely to become Easier to shift our Identity closer to our Soul.

Two Kites on one Grand Trine means that a third Kite would Create a Grand Sextile – Six planets more or less evenly spaced around the Loop.  So the “Vacancy” in that sixth corner makes it a Place of Power, as by Supplying the Energy that would complete the larger Configuration, we can Enjoy its Fruits.  In the case of a Grand Sextile, the Fruits are even better than a Grand Trine, because we get to participate fully, and our Actions are likely to Succeed because so many Energies are Collaborating with each other.

The Grand Sextile is an Excellent Model for 5D Manifestation – Creating by Cooperating with the Energies that constantly swirl around us.  The Vacancy is 28 Leo, “Many little Birds on a limb of a Big Tree: a wide and perhaps Confusing openness to a multiplicity of Inspiring Potentialities.”  But we know that Confusion is the first sign of Growth.  The Fixed Star Alphard also sits at 28 Leo.  It’s often associated with Victims or Perps of Violence.  Not a good Omen when Sedna is Lighting Up the Fixed Star Algol (Catastrophe).

Fortunately, we know how to turn that around.  First we get Conscious of our Fear about that.  Then we Discriminate between the Fear that we Feel in our Bodies, and our thoughts about that Fear, and Cancel, Neutralize, Upgrade the thoughts so we can Focus on the Fear Sensation in our Body.  Once we’ve Embraced and Softened that, if we haven’t turned it into Love already, we can Tap It Out or Poor-Sweetheart it (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4 and https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/) or Kegel the Hell out of it.

Then we Choose What We Want to Experience instead, PIAVA that (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/), Change the Subject, and Trust that All Prayers Are Answered while we wait Patiently.  Not that we’ll always get exactly what we PIAVAed.  We may not be ready for that.  But what we always will get is an Illustration of the Impediments that stand between us and What We Want.  Getting those up into Consciousness where we can work with them is three fourths of the Challenge of Learning to Manifest as if we had a natal Grand Trine and Empathy besides!

Kegels 1

January 30, 2019

One of these days I’ll learn better.  Here again I thought we were getting a few quiet days, when Lo, another Biggie.  As Frank or Earnest (I never knew which was which), “I just get my budget in order, and along comes a big Surprise, like rent, or a weekend!”  So, on 8 February, Sedna (Converting Fear into Power) is Stationary (Strong), but gosh, that’s nine days away.  Not that nine days isn’t too long for a buildup to a Station, especially if it’s a Big Station, or we’re more Sensitive than the average Bear – or if there isn’t much else going on.

Buuut, I just Noticed that asteroid Juno (the Edges of Consciousness) crosses Sedna this morning (30 January, 9:30 am PST), so that’ll be giving us an early preview of the Sedna Station.  This should be a good test of our Misogyny – the crossing, and the Station, occur within a few arcminutes of Algol, the Star most associated with Catastrophe – Catastrophe from the Male Perspective, as to them it symbolizes Female Rage – Algol is the eye in Medusa’s severed head.  From the Female Perspective, it’s a whole different Story.  I mean, gee, what do women have to Rage about, anyway?

If you haven’t noticed any Disturbances in a Force near you, you may want to look more closely at the Gender Dynamics – you might be overlooking something.  And if you’re really Brave, you might want to bring up the subject with members of the Other Gender.  “Is there anything you’d like to talk about, Dear?  How do you think we’re doing on the Male-Female Equality thing?  Anything we could Improve upon?”  If there’s anything a Juno Angle begs for, it’s Expansion of Consciousness.

This isn’t the Initiation of a new Cycle; that was last mid-September, at 28 Taurus, “A woman, past her ‘change of life,’ experiences a new love.”  As if Love was reserved for Youth, or defined by Hormones alone.  This is what we call a “Confidence-Builder,” the third and last Conjunction in a series.  So we’ve already had practice with this Energy, in the first half of September and November last year, and now it’s time to Integrate what we’ve Learned.  A reminder in case you’ve forgotten – Kavanaugh’s Confirmation Hearing spanned 4 September to 6 October.

The chart of this third Juno-Sedna crossing is pretty busy…

The main feature of the Juno-Sedna Conjunction itself, though not the main feature of the whole chart, is our Challenge (Square, or red line) to Receive a New Timeline (Klotho) that will turn our Beliefs (Vesta) upside down and inside out…

You live on Earth as a human being, not as a transcendent, Angelic being or a mythical Sidhe.  However, you can unite your humanity with the Angelic and Sidhe part within you in a rooted and yet heavenly way.  This is your potential, no matter what kind of human you are. 

“How you do this is for you to discover as your journey to revelations opens to the adventure called reality.  The Angel and Sidhe in you speak to your inner core about the most gentle and magical power you are destined to be.  Unfold your wings and walk Mother Earth with tenderness and creativity so heaven can land in the world of manifested creation.” 

— Søren Hauge, The Wild Alliance: Awakening Your Inner Angel & Sidhe, p.7.

The most Exciting (Excitement Less Breathing Equals Fear) feature of the chart as a whole is the Challenge (T-Square, the red triangle pointing left) to see All Apparent Setbacks as the Opportunities that they really are (Chiron = Despair and Miracles).  One of the most important parts of 5D Manifestation is Trust (Eurydike).  We are actually already Manifesting in 5D, but we don’t Trust it.  Whenever our Plans and Expectations and other Intellectualizations about Mechanisms lead us away from our Intentions, Intuitions, and Visualizations about Results, our 5D Guides are likely to spill our paint pot or poke a hole in a tire.

When we see these Gifts as setbacks and Gremlins, and Persist with our preference for Method over Result, we revert to 3D.  If instead we, chuckling, Appreciate the Interruptions as Guidance, then we can lean back, close our eyes, Meditate on What We Want rather than How We’re Planning to Get It, and rejoin the Collaborative Co-Creation that we really Want.  Why struggle against the Unseen Energies when we can Cooperate with them.  We have seen the Enemy, and it ain’t them.

Their Objective is to follow our Lead, but they’re mapping out the Effortless path to Manifesting What We Want, not the Tiresome path of How we Planned to Claim it as Our Own Creation.  The Unseen Energies are taking their cues from our Soul, not from our Ego, and that’s an incredible Gift to us if we’re Open to Looking for it.

Did you notice that this is a Gender-Balance problem?  The intellectual Focus on Method is the Dynamic Male process of Creating; the PIAVAed (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/) Focus on Desired Results is the Magnetic Female way of Manifesting.

Regardless of our external Gender, our Inner Female (Heart, Intuition) knows Where We’re Going and What We Want.  Our Inner Male (Intellect, Engineering) might know How To Get There or How to Get It, but he isn’t hip to Where or What or Why.  They need to Partner Up if we’re going to get to 5D.

The Deeper part of this Challenge/T-Square is the Gateway to our Forbidden Genius and our Unlimited Potential (dwarf planets Ixion and Chaos, in the Opposition at the base of the T-Square).  Both of these lie far beyond our Expectations and Understandings, and will Deliver Rewards that are as Exceedingly Surprising and Delightful.  This Gate is Open in this chart (ie, at this time), and the Treasures that lie beyond the Gate are Glorious.  All we have to do to Open to them, is to see Interruptions as Gifts, as hints that we were veering off course.

The big red square is a Grand Cross – four planets more or less equally spaced around the Zodiacal Loop.  It’s actually more Impactful than the T-Square we’ve been talking about, but the T-Square will give us more hassles, so we’ll probably Notice it sooner.  Not only is a Grand Cross a Big Deal (because it spans the entire chart), but this one includes the Nodal Axis, meaning that it’s all about our Journey from Karma to Grace, making it Foundational.

Bringing our Fear up into Consciousness where we can Breathe it into Excitement or Kegel it into Power, is an Easy Path (Trine Bridge, the blue lines) across the Chasm between our Karma (South Node, upper left) and our Mission (North node, lower right).  Our Helpers in Disguise (remember now, Disruptions are Gifts informing us that we’re getting off course) are our own Soul (Uranus, lower left), and our Rebirth (Haumea-Aletheia-Pallas, upper right).

Allowing the Rebirth (Haumea) of our Boundaries (Pallas) between Truth (Aletheia) and Fiction, aka Suspending Disbelief, is a big part of Reframing our Setbacks and Surrendering our Ego into Service to our Soul.  Uranus is on its way back into Taurus (Solid Materiality), after spending seven years in Aries (Creative Spirit).

♥ There is also much Grace in the chart (Grand Trines and Kites, Diamond Stars), but we’ll talk about that in Kegels 2.

The other Yin Gate in the Chiron-Station chart centers on the Opposition between Mercury (Awareness) and Sedna-Lachesis (Reframing Fear).  This is important for many of us because Sedna is Stationary soon (first week of February) at 27 Taurus.  The Star Algol, generally considered the most malign of Stars, sits at 27 Taurus, so a casual reading would likely warn of Catastrophe – and given the state of Humanity’s Relationship to its Home Planet, Catastrophe wouldn’t be a big surprise.

Catastrophe for the Patriarchy, that is.  Algol symbolizes Female Power, Anger, and Sexuality.  Lachesis is about scheduling Timelines, and in the context of Consciousness (Awareness), it represents Choosing to End a Self-Sabotaging Timeline.  This obsolete Timeline could be about Women Living in Fear and subjugation.

The Paradox is that we don’t really Believe that we have the Power to just End our Timelines unilaterally.  As long we perceive ourselves as Victims or potential Victims of large-scale processes and events such as Global Warming or rising Fascism, and we understandably don’t believe we can turn those around by ourselves, we’re stuck.  What we don’t Realize is that we do have the Power to Change how these Patterns impact us Personally – by PIAVAing just that.

See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/ if you don’t grok PIAVAing.

We might feel Selfish to Protect ourself from global Bummers from which many others Suffer greatly.  But the more people refuse to accept those Patterns as “just the way it is,” the faster the Global Energy will Change.  Our Self-Protection is one of the Strongest ways we have to End the Timelines.  And just because we are Protected, doesn’t mean we can’t take Actions to facilitate Ending the Patterns on the Global scale.

We’ve said before that Passion and Neutrality are not mutually exclusive, though they appear to be just that to the Victim Ego.  In fact, when we Act from Neutrality we can be much more Effective than when we Act purely from unbridled Passion.  That may be the primary Paradox that we’re Learning here.

This second Yin Gate is about Awareness that Timelines of Fear can be Ended Consciously.  If we Fear what we don’t Understand, and if we don’t Believe we can Change what we don’t Understand – both common characteristics of the Dualistic mind – then we have no Power over Fear.  But we have demonstrated to ourselves (or can do so right now if we so choose) that…

  • Fear + Breathing = Excitement
  • Fear + Kegels = Power
  • Fear + Vision = Equanimity

…and other similar equations that Convert Fear to Power.  We wnat to be very familiar, even Habitual, with these Practices before February.
