2019 Q3 I

June 30, 2019

The Stations and Moons and other major astroevents in the third quarter of 2019 line up below.  Notice how often 0-7 Degrees and 22-28 Degrees are Lit Up repeatedly, marking these Degree Zones as major issues for us.  These are Zones of Transition, so we can Expect lots of Changes.  If we slide these two together, we get one Zone from 22 Degrees to 7 Degrees of the next sign, exactly 50% of the Zodiac.  Yet, not counting the Sign Changes, between 1 July and 14 September, fully 83% of the major events reside in this Transition Zone.

And between 7 and 31 July, Mercury Retrogrades over all but a few Degrees of the entire Zone, backing up from 5 Leo to 24 Cancer.  Including its two Direct passages, Mercury is in this Zone from 20 June through the Ides of August.  So we can’t say we’re blindsided!  Mercury is the symbol for Awareness, so whatever issues have arisen since the Solstice, or arise in the next week, those are the issues that we’ll be Dancing with for the next three months.

Mercury’s Journey will be about Separating our Identity from our Emotions (the Pisces Decanate of Cancer and the Leo Decanate of Leo; a Decanate is 10 Degrees) and about Distinguishing Sympathy from Compassion and our Identity from Both (the Taurus and Gemini Duads of Cancer and the Leo and Virgo Duads of Leo; a Duad is 2½ Degrees).

Compassion cares deeply about the Suffering of Other, but it’s Neutral about the Outcome.  That sounds like an Oxymoron, but it’s actually a Paradox.  Contradictions exist only in the Dualistic mind; in the Unitary and Multidimensional Universe, there are no Contradictions.  If you can possibly give yourself Permission to Reframe Contradictions into Paradoxes, and Accept that as Reasonable, you’re on your way to Growing Out of your “Left” Brain and adding circuitry to your Corpus Callosum that will improve your Recognition of and Response to your Intuition and Instincts.

Sympathy is an Identification with, a form of Codependence.  Your Sympathy cares about the Outcome, because you’re Merged with the Object of your Sympathy, so the Outcome Happens to You.  Do you see how Important your Identity is in this Equation?  You can actually Manifest Disease with Sympathy, it you work hard enough at it.  Compassion won’t Create Disease, but it can Create Healing.

What We Feel and Who We Are, are two very different things.  Emotions are extremely Valuable parts of our Intuition and our Instincts – when we Feel them.  When we Become them, they Lose their Value.  It’s like kayaking on a fast-moving River.  As long as we’re Feeling our Emotions, we can successfully navigate the Rapids.  When we start to Become our Emotion, we go under, and if we don’t right ourself quickly, we Lose the Plot – or worse.

Now, how often are we Aware that We Have An Identity, let alone What It Is in that moment.  Once we Become an Emotion, Who’s left to Notice?  It’s Important then that we make a Habit of Asking ourself, frequently, Who Am I Right Now?  Where Is My Identity In This Moment?  It’ll be a puzzling Question at first, but keep at it.  The Answer isn’t nearly as Important as Asking the Question.  When we become Aware of a Splinter of Consciousness distinct from the Emotions or Thoughts or Trance that has us by the throat in that moment, we can Grow the Splinter by Tapping, or Poor-Sweethearting ourself, or Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrading our Self-Abusive Thoughts.

Here’s where Mercury will Dance between now and mid-August…

  • 1-3 July, 4 Degrees
  • 4-10 July, 5 Degrees
  • 11-13 July, 4 Degrees
  • 14-15 July, 3 Degrees
  • 16 July, 2 Degrees
  • 17-18 July, 1 Degrees
  • 19 July, 0 or 30 Degrees
  • 20-21 July, 29 Degrees
  • 22 July, 28 Degrees
  • 23-24 July, 27 Degrees
  • 25-26 July, 26 Degrees
  • 27-30 July, 25 Degrees
  • 31 July-1 August, 24 Degrees
  • 2-4 August, 25 Degrees
  • 5-6 August, 26 Degrees
  • 7 August, 27 Degrees
  • 8-9 August, 28 Degrees
  • 10 August, 29 Degrees
  • 11 August, 30-1 Degrees
  • 12 August, 2 Degrees
  • 13 August, 3 Degrees
  • 14 August, 4 Degrees
  • 15 August, 5-6 Degrees
  • 16 August, 7 Degrees

Print this list out, and write all of your natal planets that are between 22 and 7 Degrees (22-30 and 0-7) on the list, next to each line, ignoring the Signs.  Don’t worry about being exact – we’ve got a couple of days of leeway, and it will vary a bit depending on where we in the World anyway.  Then, each day, Ask yourself,

“Does my Identity Today – Who I Am At This Moment – seem to Relate in any way to that (or those) natal planets of mine?” 

Don’t worry about the Answer; the important thing is Asking the Question, and being Curious about what Thoughts and Feelings arise as a result.  If you end up Confused, fabulous!  That’s the best possible Outcome.  Let yourself Feel your Confusion, it’s the first sign of Growth.  If you try to Figure it Out, you Lose.  Growth only happens when you Allow Confusion.

Lachesis-Varuna 1

March 13, 2019

We’re detouring to examine the minutiae of the Angles that asteroid Lachesis is making with other planets, under the thesis that Lachesis can Teach us to Change or End undesirable Timelines Purposely, rather than remaining their Victim.  The Mythological Lachesis was one of the “Fates,” the Goddess who Determined the length of the “Cord” that wove the Fabric of Destiny.

But we Believe that Fate and Free Will are not properties of Reality, but yet another False Duality of the mind of the Observing Huper.  It’s the mind (and Politics and Manipulation) that Operates in Either/Or, while the Universe (along with Spirit and Manifestation) Operates in Both/And.  Fate is what Befalls us when we Operate Unconsciously; Choice is ours when we Operate Consciously.  The first Requirement for Operating Consciously is Awareness.

So we’re examining the Lachesis Cycles, to see what it can Teach us about Choice.  In the previous post we discussed the Lachesis-Chiron Cycle and its Impact on whether we find Life, Time, and Opportunity to be Discouraging or Exciting.  In the post before that we mentioned the Lachesis-Uranus Cycle and its Contribution to how much we Allow the Soul to drive our Lives rather than the Ego.  Next up is the Lachesis-Varuna Cycle, which has the Potential to bring our Health and Vitality under Conscious Influence.

On 14 March (3:30 am PDT), Lachesis Completes a Waning Sextile to (two Signs behind) Varuna.  If we allow one Degree of Sensitivity to this Angle, then this Energy comes into our Field around 10 March.  At three Degrees, it’s more like 1 March.  One Degree is the more traditional measure, but the more Sensitive among us will probably find three to be more Realistic.  As we said in the previous post, the Sextile delivers Grace in matters where we Take the First Step, and Striving to Upgrade our Consciousness is certainly an excellent example of Taking a First Step.

In a Waxing Sextile – the Sextile that occurs shortly after the Initiation of a Cycle, while the Cycle is in the Building phase – it’s fairly Clear what we can do to further the Cycle.  A Cycle doesn’t hit the Mainstream till the Waxing Square, so at the Waxing Sextile we’re kind of on our own, without a lot of Outside Support or Acknowledgement.  If we Recognize that and Make Use of it, we can get in early on the Trend and, as it were, “Buy Low,” or perhaps help Determine the Vocabulary of the Conversation that will eventually erupt into the Mainstream.

But a Waning Sextile – the Sextile that occurs shortly before the End of a Cycle, is a different story.  A Cycle for practical purposes Ends at its Waning Square, so by the time of the Waning Sextile, we’re Descending into the Void.  We could for instance Take the First Step to withdraw our Investment in the Cycle’s Energy, but even that would be a little late.  It may be more appropriate to Take the First Step to Clear Away All Expectations around the issues that the Cycle has Influence upon.

So the Lachesis-Varuna Cycle is about Making Conscious Choices about our Vitality.  That doesn’t mean getting a flu shot or Changing our Supplements.  It means that we start to Recognize that it’s our Thoughts, and How we Deal With our Emotions, and How we Relate to Spirit that have the most Powerful and Foundational Impact upon our Health and Vigor.  Compare how you Relate to your Vitality to how you Relate to your Abundance.  Is there any sense in which you’re in Scarcity about your Health?

Do you Respond to Messages from your Body – such as Pain or Discomfort – with Gratitude and Full Attention (to the Message-Sending Organ), or do you go directly to Symptom Alleviation?  Do I regard Pain as a Bother, or as a Gift?  Do I look to see how my Pain may be Influenced by my Habits, Thoughts, Emotions, Karma, and Patterns of Love, Fear, Gratitude, Regret, Embrace, and Rejection toward the Sources of Discomfort in my Body?  Am I a Victim of my Discomfort, or am I Adept at Manifesting the Comfort I want?

Gary Craig (https://emofree.com/answers/doing-the-impossible/impossible-healings-rheumatoid-arthritis-fibromyalgia-and-more.html), Dr. Kim (https://drkimderamo.com/), Nick Ortner (http://www.foodpowers.com/nick_ortner.html), to name only a few practitioners, all provide many examples of what is sloppily called “Mind Over Matter” or “Mind-Body” Healing – sloppily because it’s a lot more than “mind,” in the usual intellectual sense of the word, that’s doing the work.

I find that it’s rare to meet someone who doesn’t stare at me blankly when I remind them that Body, Spirit, Intellect, and Emotion are not different, independent “Levels” of Life whose paths never cross, but different Perspectives on the Unitary and Multifarious Reality that Comprises our “Usness” and the World around us.  (I don’t even try to tell people that “We” don’t end at our Skin or our Egos.)  One of the fastest ways to Change a facet of our Lives that we don’t Want, is to Shift to a different Perspective on it.

A Physical Issue?  Do your Thoughts about it contribute to your Discomfort, or are they Healing you?  Are your Feelings about it conducive to Healing, or to Harm?  What are you Praying for?  Remember that All Thoughts are Prayers and All Prayers are Answered.  “I’m Worried about this Ache, I better go see what the Doctor has to say about it” is a Prayer, and what is it Praying for?  For Surrendering your Power, and not to any Higher Power.

A Waning phase of a Cycle doesn’t mean that the Issue, such as Vitality (Varuna), or our Victimhood or Adeptness toward our Health (Lachesis-Varuna), goes away.  It means that the current Specific Cycle is Fini.  So what do we know about the Cycle that’s Ending, the Energy we need to Let Go Of?

It initiated mid-June 2014 in 26 Cancer, “Guests are reading in the library of a luxurious home.”  So, these are not owners, and perhaps not even regular visitors to this Abundance, they’re “Guests.”  In the context of Vitality, these are not Empowered, Active Participants in their own Life Force, they’re more akin to visitors in the Doctor’s office.  But they are Studying – something.  They could be immer Strebend.  Without their own Resources, they’re able to Borrow someone else’s.  So maybe the four years and nine months of this Cycle are about Getting Our Own Resources for Self-Healing.

The chart of the Initiation tells us more about how we’ve spent the last half-decade…  The Initiation Squares the Nodes, telling us that this Opening to Conscious Suzerainty over our Vitality, to the extent that we’ve Lived it, has been an integral part of our Lifetime Journey and Mission.  We may not often have been Conscious about this part of our Journey, but we can rest assured we Harvested the Experience that was necessary for us to Harvest.  When we consider all we’ve Learned about Tapping, Poor-Sweethearting, Theta Healing and the like, even if we haven’t yet applied it consistently to Physical Healing, we’ve Learned a lot that we can apply.

The Nodes are joined by Eurydike (Trust) on the North (Mission) and Eris (Revelation of what’s been Denied) on the South (Held Emotions, Karma), so we can Trust that we’ve Learned what we needed to Learn and Opened doors to what we needed to Let Go Of.

The incredible Stellium (group of three or more planets) in late Sagittarius has been a relatively Easy Path (Trine Bridge) around or through our Vitality Issues.  The Stellium is about Gaining Confidence that We’re Being Fully Responsive to Enough Self-Sovereignty to Overcome Our Programmed Shame and Begin to Embrace our Forbidden Genius and Appreciate Its Role in Our Survival as an Individual and as a Species (Chariklo-Pholus-Hylonome-Ixion-Quaoar).

Then there are the three Challenges (T-Squares, red triangles) that aren’t directly connected to the 26-Degree Initiation itself, but which are part and parcel of the Cycle.

First, we’ve Opened our Intuition (Asbolus) with God/Goddess’s Help (Neptune) to End the Karmic Vows which had been serving as Hard Boundaries that we’ve been working to Overcome, against the New Life-Serving Beliefs and Expanded Perspectives that we’ve been Gaining (Atropos-Orcus-Pallas).

The other two T-Squares Complement one another.  They’re about how The Most Important Thing (Saturn) is to Change our Values (Venus) to Allow Unconditional Self-Love (Sappho), and how we Heal our Despair (Chiron) by Facing the Truth (Veritas) of our Limitless Potential (Chaos).

Can you see how these Changes have been playing out in your Young Life over the last five years?  It’s time to Congratulate ourself for a job well done, Change the Subject, and Trust that we’ve Learned enough to now Instinctively Create a New Life where we’re more Adept at exerting Healthy Control over our Physical Circumstances.  Lord knows there are plenty of other Cycle to fret about, so we should be Delighted to know we can Let Go of this one, at least till September when the Next Cycle begins.

So what about the September Cycle?  Where will it take us?  No, it’s time to Change the Subject.  The more we can Accept that we’re In The Void phase where we’re Purging everything we Know about Lachesis-Varuna in order to be Available for the New, the more we’ll be an Open Channel for that new Energy when it Arrives.  But it hasn’t Arrived yet, and if we meet it from our current Perspective, the Perspective of the End of the Old Cycle, our Expectations will cause us to miss most of it, to Frame it in obsolete terms that will cripple it.
