Rebirth Full Moon IV

June 17, 2019

Speaking of plastic (as we were recently), here’s a status report…

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/jun/17/recycled-plastic-america-global-crisis

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/jun/17/recycling-plastic-wrong-guide

As we said, the solution to this is super simple – just prohibit the manufacture of Instant Landfill.  But of course since the government and the manufacturers have merged, that can’t be done, because the manufacturers would lose money, and that’s obviously far more important than, say, the Oceans.  In ten US states you pay a deposit for a glass bottle, and 80% are returned and recycled.

But we were in the middle of busily listing out the many Prominent Features of the 17 July Full Moon.  We only had one Big One left before we get to the Hidden Treasures.  Here’s the chart, by the way…

You can see the Full Moon’s red triangle (T-Square) and the big red box with the X in it (Grand Cross).

Next up is the big blue rectangle, which astrologers call a “Golden Rectangle” because it’s blue.  No, not really, it’s because the ratio of its short sides to its long sides is the Golden Angle, φ or Phi.  We use blue to indicated a Friendly Energy, so Golden turns out to be blue.  In a Golden Rectangle the two central diagonal Dichotomies (red lines or Oppositions) interact in a very Constructive way.

Fortunately, we’ve already talked about both Dichotomies, because one (Moon-Ixion vs. Sun-Chaos) is the Full Moon itself, and the other (Haumea-Veritas vs. Klotho-Eris) is half of the Grand Cross.  That’s the nature of Duality, isn’t it – it always ends up being Soandso versus Whosit, so Competition is assured.

In the previous posts we summarized the Full Moon as “we Succeed by Dismissing the ‘Shoulds’ that shout at us, and instead Embracing the Intuitions that are always Whispering sweet nothings in our ear,” and the other Dichotomy as “our Fear about having to Face something we’ve been Ignoring is juxtaposed against our Intuitive Excitement about an Impending Future Feeling very Close at hand.”

You can read that last paragraph a couple of time and let yourself Imagine how those two will meld, but I’ll choose “You have Intuitions about your Future, but they’re pretty quiet.  You also have a bundle of Anxieties about it, and they’re pretty loud.  Put some Effort into Deciding What You Really Want for yourself, and then Commit to spending a lot of time Focusing on How It Will Feel when that Happens.”  That’s probably enough.

Our first Hidden Treasure is only partly shown on the picture of the chart.  In the lower left you can see the symbol for our Sacred Mission, the headphones (North Node), which sits next to the symbol for Awareness and Communication (Mercury), the legless stick figure with pointy ears.  That’s fine so far, as it indicates an increasing Awareness of our Mission.  But what’s not drawn in is the symbol for Ego Death (asteroid Nemesis), which sits in the same place.

Now we’ve been preaching for a long time that we should all be Celebrating Ego Death, because it’s just a Molt, and its primary function is to eliminate our Limitations.  But I know, We’d Rather Die than Feel That Again!  Which is kinda the point, it’s just that the “We” is the Ego, so yes, Die away, K?  Feeling That Again Happens to Be Exactly How We Eliminate Our Limitations.  ‘Nuff said?

The other Hidden Treasure happens as we speak, as the symbol for Manifestation (dwarf planet Makemake) is very Strong (Stationary 2am PDT 18 June), abetted by Strength in the symbol for Truth (asteroid Veritas Stationary 1pm PDT 18 June).  This is very Easy to interpret – Don’t Fall for the Temptation to Dwell on What You Don’t Want.  Focus on What You Do Want Instead, and if you can Imagine yourself Feeling the Way You’re Going to Feel When You Do Get What You Want, You’re GoldenEvery Thought Is a Prayer, and All Prayers Are Answered.

While Attending to your own Desires is Bottom Line (It’s like Love – you have to do yourself first), this especially applies to the Future of the Planet.  Imagine yourself Feeling the Way You’re Going to Feel When You’re Living on a Planet Where Collaboration Has Replaced CompetitionWe’ll explain that in the next post.

Most of you will be reading this after the fact, but no worries – it’s Never Too Late.

Making Sense

August 29, 2018

When Energies hang on past their “scheduled Time,” as they appear to be doing now for at least some of us, it’s often because we haven’t Finished Processing the Energy that’s “sticky,” or because we haven’t Let it Go.  Of course we expect the Energy in New and Full Moons to linger past the event itself, so let’s dive a bit deeper into a few corners of the incredible 26 August Full Moon chart, drawn in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/08/22/a-potentially-rough-week/.

We already written a bit about the Waning Saturn-Chiron Square, at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/08/27/a-potentially-rough-week-iv/, averring that it was already a done deal Energywise.  But that doesn’t mean we finished with the Energy.  We looked at the Waning Square in A Potentially Rough Week IV, but let’s look at the Cycle itself that’s Waning.

Chiron has an elliptical orbit, actually stretching beyond the orbit of Uranus for a while, then rushing back toward the Sun before finding its Perigee inside the orbit of Saturn.  This Pattern makes for some very unusual Astrology.  We interpret this as Chiron Receiving a Message from the Soul (Uranus) and conveying it to the Ego (Saturn), then taking a Response from Saturn back to the Soul.  The Ego, of course, is very Hard of Hearing, or pretends to be, so it sometimes takes a long time for Chiron to get Saturn to Listen to the Soul’s Message.  

Western or “Tropical” astrology uses only the position in the Sky as seen from Earth to compute the Angles between planets.  How close or distant the planets are to the Earth or the Sun isn’t included.  So the 62-year Saturn-Chiron Cycles we measure relative to the Earth, by Longitude, are pretty much independent of the 50-year Cycles of Chiron’s distance from the Sun with its apogee beyond the orbit of Uranus and its perigee within that of Saturn.

In the current Cycle, it took twenty years for the Saturn Ego to grok the Soul’s message!  The current Saturn-Chiron Cycle was Initiated way back in mid-April of 1966.  Saturn Opposed Chiron a full twenty-three times between 1986 and 2006!  While Saturn and Chiron were nearly the same distance from the Sun, they traveled at about the same speed, so they chased each other around the Zodiac for twenty years.  It’s a Wonder they didn’t turn into Butter.

Couldn’t we have a field day relating this to the Uranus-Pluto Cycle and the Harmonic Convergence!  Only Coincidence though, of course – right?

To be Clear, the current Saturn-Chiron Cycle began in April 1966.  The Waxing Square occurred in 1975-76.  And the Opposition repeated 23 times from 1986 till 2006.  The Waning Square happened in 2017.  The next Cycle won’t begin until June 2028.

And what does a Waning Square mean?  It means we have to Trust enough to Let Go and Let God/Goddess.  The old Cycle is winding down, and we want to be Meditating on Emptiness during this phase of the Cycle, so we can be Open to Receiving the New Energy as it’s Born, rather than Resisting it because we’re still Invested in the Energy of the old Cycle.

So, just What Was the Soul’s message that Saturn/Ego had such a hard time Hearing?  We know that by the Degree of the Initiation of the Saturn-Chiron Cycle.  That was 24 Pisces, “On a small island surrounded by the vast expanse of the sea, people are seen living in close interaction.”  Elsie could as well have said “surrounded by the vast expanse of Space.”  A photo of Earth rising over the Moon was first sent home in August 1966..

Stewart Brand’s first Whole Earth Catalog was published two years later…

Rodney King speaks pretty eloquently to the Cycle and its “living in close interaction,” along about the twelfth Opposition…

I think it’s safe to say that the Earth Herself “got the Message,” but many of the Hupers on Her still interpret “Close Interaction” as Exploitation, without even being Conscious of it.

This kind of puts an exclamation point on the fact that Saturn Conjoins our Survival Instincts – Quaoar – in the Full Moon chart that we’re working from.  We talk about the new Saturn-Quaoar Cycle in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/12/24/fateful-new-moon-iii-survival/.  The Saturn-Chiron Waning Square Can-Opener occurred at about the same time as the Quaoar-Saturn Initiation.  A couple of other posts from around those times add a lot to the context…

This Saturn-Quaoar is the odd-man-out in the Full Moon chart; all of the other T-Squares are embedded in and Completed by Grand Crosses, but the Saturn-Quaoar T-Square (with Chiron and Makemake) Opposes the Vacancy (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/08/22/a-potentially-rough-week/).

The Waxing Square that Saturn makes to Makemake (Manifestation) would also be an important contributor to this Dynamic.  The Saturn-Makemake Cycle Initiated in September 2009 at 26 Virgo, “A boy with a censer serves the priest near the altar.”  That’s an incense-burner, not someone who tells us what we can and can’t say, though the implication is there, not just in the homophone, but in the concept of blasphemy the priest wears on his sleeve.  And of course, unfortunately, any suggestion of a Boy and a priest implies Abuse.

A priest of course implies Duality – defining Right and Wrong.  Or Manifesting (Makemake) Profit or Loss rather than focusing on a Higher Purpose and Accepting with Gratitude what Flows from that.  The Boy assists in the Ritual, the incense Intending to Deepen the Trance and increase the Profit.  No Blame, I’ve gotten much Peace visiting as a stranger in Catholic Churches, when the Protestant Houses were locked tight.  In spite of it all, Spirit was There.

But let’s go with the incense-burner.  What Trance do you use for Manifestation, which is to say, What are your Beliefs about Manifestation?  Is Abundance your Birthright, or is it something you have to Steal, or Sacrifice your Health or your Pleasure or your Self-Respect for?  Does Abundance for you mean Having Enough to Share, or Having Enough to Waste?

Do you have to Compromise your Values to Support yourself?  I’ve been told that Guilt, or being Afraid that you’ll get “Caught” being an Imposter, means that you’re on the Edges of your Creative Self.  Is that True for you?  Are you on the Edge of your Competence?  Is that Scary, or too Comfortable?  Do you Recognize and Deal With Anxiety as Anxiety, or do you focus on the alleged Content of it, and let it fester into a chain of Negative Thoughts and Fears?  Which Consumes more of your Life – Anxiety, or Prayer?

Was 2009 for you about “The Most Important Thing is Manifestation”?  Did it Flow?  Effortlessly?  Or do you Experience Saturn as many astrologers Expect you to, as Limitation or Constraint?  Saturn Limits your Options because it’s advising you to focus on Priority Number One.  What is Priority Number One for you?  Does your sense of Obligation prevent you from putting your Fallbacks and Secondaries on hold while you narrow in on The Most Important Thing?  Do you Trust yourself to Take Care of yourself First?

It hasn’t been dominating recently, but a few years ago, as one of the prerequisites for today, there was a big Focus on Sustainability, where we Learned that the other side of the Sustainability Coin is Sustenance – Letting Go of what isn’t Necessary.  For the Greedy, Sustenance is a bad word, but many folks living a Sustenance Lifestyle feast on the Abundance of the Planet, with Prayer and Gratitude.  Yes, there will be a Fasting Season, but Calorie Restriction extends Life.

We can’t forget that Chiron Opposes Makemake in this Drama.  Which dominates your Manifestation – Pain and Despair, or Self-Empathy and Miracles?  “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Worried about Survival, aren’t you.”  Then, do you successfully Change the Subject?

Abundance New Moon

January 17, 2018

The 16 January New Moon itself is more prosaic.  The Moon is the Focus of a Challenge to Mastery (T-Square), implying that we’ll be Challenged over the next few weeks.  In what way?  Well, we know our Values will be Confronted (Venus on the New Moon), and we usually have a lot of Identity Attached to our Values, so that’s a Threat.  We also know we’re up for Rebirth (Haumea on one side of the base of the T-Square).  That should be a Joyous occasion.  Oh.  Well, yeah, I guess we might hesitate to give up some of what we’re being Rebirthed from.  Hmm.  Like what? 

Well, there’s a part of our Life that we just sort of Accept as “The Way It Is” because we’ve just never seen how it might be otherwise (Moira-as-Fate et al on the other end of the base).  We’ve even set up probably-by-now-Unconscious Boundaries against the Disappointment we’ve become Resigned to (Pallas/Boundaries too).  Um, it looks like those Boundaries are Breaking Down (Eris-Uranus/Revelation of the Soul Self as well).  We know it’s Time for something Big (previous post), and the Arcturians have advised (in the post before that) – “don’t wait” for it…

Feel the vibration of that which you want to be living, and then open your heart to access the stream of Source Energy that comes to you from your heart center.  Use that energy to create the experience you want to be feeling.  Let yourself have the experience now.  Don’t wait.  Don’t even wait for what you have created to come to you before you start living it, experientially.”

Kinda Scary.  What have you been thinking, “Wouldn’t it be nice to…”?  So, what stops you?  Oh, that.  Something about Survival?  Like, say, Doubt?  Lack of Trust?  Doesn’t feel like we’re making that up, but I guess we are.  Usually-Reliable Sources tell me that “there is no Universal Law of Scarcity” – there’s only misinterpreted Fear (that makes sense – Sedna makes a Quincunx Bridge to the T-Square). 

“To think prosperously in spite of appearances to the contrary is worth every effort, because it produces rich results…  Another way to invoke the law of increase, and thus to avoid the pettiness and destructiveness of the law of decrease, is by training your mind never to be disappointed.  If certain things do not come at certain times in the way you wished, do not consider it a failure. 

“Since you have not received that thing, you can instead stand firm in the faith that something much better is on the way and will appear at the right time.  When you seem to fail, remind yourself that you have not asked big enough.  Expand your viewpoint and expectation, and a larger answer than you originally anticipated will surely come.  Failure is nothing but success trying to be born in a bigger way.” 

— Catherine Ponder, The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity, pp.126-7.

Guess we better Locate this Fear stuff and Tap it Out.Besides having our Values Challenged, it looks like the Fear and the Rebirth should be where we put our Attention (the green-wedge Fingers of God).  Any other Friends in the chart?  Hmmm, looks like our Forbidden Genius may bail us out, if we’re Responsive to it (the Ixion-Pholus Trine Bridge), and our Survival Instincts should help Guide us (Quaoar Conjoining as well), though that could be a little tricky.  Remember those Boundaries against Disappointment?  They’ve been disguised as Survival Instincts all these years.  We’ll have to finesse that.

Oh my, there must be some Trauma holding up those Boundaries against What We’ve Always Wanted but Wasn’t Possible (Chiron Quincunx-Bridging the T-Square).  What if we could Choose to Neutralize the Trauma (Lachesis Conjoining, in its Guise of making the Choice to End a Timeline early – the only requirement is knowing that Fate and Karma are Paper Tigers)?  Starting by Poor-Sweethearting it maybe (it is Chiron, Master of Making Miracles out of Despair)?

Okay, forewarned is forearmed.  If we can Avoid Regressing and forgetting everything we’ve Learned in the past half-century when that Trauma revisits, we have a tentative Strategy.  I still Believe that All Prayers Are Answered sooner or later, so I think I’ll PIAVA now that I Remember.

Hmmm.  We might have a clue about when and how this Trauma (in the singular, we hope, though Traumas are known to breed) crawls out of the Mud.  Remember asteroid Nemesis, the one that we associate with Ego Death because the Goddess Nemesis was in charge of remediating Guilt?  It entered Pisces (Emotional Detox) on 15 January (4:30 am PST), and during the course of this Moon Cycle will dance with OR10 (Intrustive Memories) on 22 January (12am PST) and with Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) on 27 January (5pm PST).  That’s as good an excuse for revisiting Trauma as I can imagine.

OR10 Initiates Nemesis in 4 Pisces, “Heavy car traffic on a narrow isthmus linking two seashore resorts.”  Rudhyar’s take is “The mobility and intensity of interchanges which make possible and characterize complex social processes.”  Translate that from Sociologuese to English (“it’s a Jungle out there”) and we can end up revisiting any number of possible Trauma situations in our Personal Histories and Herstories, including episodes of Abuse.  If you have Heavy Dreams or Hallucinations around 22 January, tough it out; it’s just your Inner Child calling for you.

Nessus Initiates Nemesis in 6 Pisces, “A parade of army officers in full dress.”  I consulted for a federal agency in DC for a while back in the ’80s, and many of the denizens were ex-military.  The ex-Army people wouldn’t do anything without being told to.  The ex-Navy people were obviously trained to think for themselves, and did so.  Full dress implies Full Compliance with orders.  This conjures up the classical protocols that #MeToo is combatting.  Expect ongoing big #MeToo news toward the end of the month, and your own Abuse memories to surface.

Abuse is often associated with Sex and Violence, but it’s far more pervasive than that.  For instance, one nasty sort of Abuse is when the significant adults in your childhood never Inquire about who you are, they’re totally absorbed in Programming you to look like their portrait of what kids are supposed to look and sound and act like.  Growing Up without an accurate or caring Mirror leaves long-lasting scars in our Ego structure.  The Suffocation you may have received from overbearing adults, and the Abandonment you felt from uncaring adults, are both serious Abuse scars, whether you would use that word for them or not.

Times Up for Scarcity

January 17, 2018

We saw a serious cluster of Seventh-Harmonic Angles the other day in the Time’s Up I post.  Look what it’s evolved into at the 16 January (6pm PST) New Moon…A little sloppy, but close enough that I wouldn’t hesitate to call it a Grand Septile.  We can expect our Timing to be a little “off” though, not quite 5D yet.  I feel the mismatch already; my Prayers are usually answered pretty directly, but today, not so much.  I’m even having trouble concentrating enough to finish a Prayer.  Instead I’m being hit with Insights, without even having to “Pay Attention.”  No complaints about that!

And when I look at the Heavy Hitters in the Sorta-Grand Sextile, it’s not Surprising!  Pluto, Neptune, Makemake, Chaos, North Node – Trance-ReFormation, Confusion/Growth, Manifestation, Limitlessness, Life Mission.  And if we stretch it’s Grandness to include the fellow travelers, Uranus and Jupiter – Soul and Expansion.  The first suggestion is that I’m aiming my Prayers too low – I should be Praying for the Moon, not just a plate of green Saganaki!

Excuse me for a few minutes while I go have a chat with the Goddess…

Make Ego Great Again II

August 13, 2017

A friend sent this link to a Vedic interpretation of Eclipses…

http://visionaryreadings.com/the-meaning-of-eclipses-in-vedic-astrology/

And then described how their Life has been bothered by bureaucratic snafus recently. 

Where we are Looking has a lot to do with how we Perceive Reality.  Consider the contrast between Looking at the Fear Propaganda on TV in the USofA, or Looking at, for example, http://www.onenessofall.com/newest.html or http://danielscranton.com/ .  Not to imply that the Arcturians have any kind of monopoly on Relevance to what’s happening on the Planet.  You might resonate more to the Pleiadeans or https://lightquest-intl.com/ or http://www.starwars.com/games-apps .

Vedic astrology has a tendency to Believe it does have a monopoly on Truth.  If it provides Perspective that is useful to you, then, as with any Perspective, by all means use it.  The more Lenses we have to see the World through, the closer we are to actually participating in Reality rather than our own Projections.  When any Perspective strikes Fear, though, we need to Tap Out the Fear before we use the Perspective.  If a Perspective is good for nothing more than bringing Unconscious Fear into Consciousness where you can Love it to Death, then it’s a very Powerful Perspective for you.  Alternatively, with a technique like Theta Healing, where the Outcome is immediately available to us, we can modify our Command until we find one that works, or alternate Theta and Tapping.

The root of the monopoly tendency in Vedic astrology is Religious Politics.  Simply put, if it’s Either/Or it’s Political.  If it’s Both/And, it’s Spiritual.  We make no claim that this is an absolute Truth, but we suggest strongly that it’s a very Reliable First Approximation and a very Useful Perspective.  Vedic astrology supported Political Hinduism, as distinct from Esoteric Hinduism.  Political Hinduism supported ongoing Abuse of the Dalit or Harijan caste just as Political Christianity supported ongoing Slavery and Abuse of Primary Cultures everywhere they were encountered.  Certainty is a Tool of Political Agendas.

We look at it this way.  Hinduism is frequently accused of promoting Fatalism, and Political Hinduism certainly appears to.  As with most Religions, I don’t believe that Esoteric Hinduism does promote Fatalism.  Fate and Free Will are usually seen as an Either/Or, so as with any Duality, we Know that this is a 3D Veil attempting to obscure the Both/And, Multifarious and Unitary Reality on the Other Side.

The difference between Fate and Free Will is that our Fate is what befalls us when we’re Captives of the Karmic and Generational and Social Archetypes that we usually refer to as our Limiting Beliefs.  Free Will is what we Obtain when we step outside of the Limited Reality of the these Archetypes.  Even the “Laws” of Physics are simply Archetypes, Projections of the Ego’s need for Stasis and the mind’s need for the Illusion of Understanding.  If you’ve ever had a Wannabe Guru Manifest in your bedroom in a pillar of shimmering colored pinpricks of light like on Star Trek, you’d understand this.  Or Channeled an Antarean, or met a Walk-In, or Encountered one of your Doubles.

To me Growth in Consciousness (which means Freeing yourself from some Archetype), which usually requires an Ego Death of some sort, is not about Discovery, but about Differentiation.  We See or Feel more layers of Reality when we start noticing that there are Trees in the Forest, Trees of different Colors, Trees that have Birds and Bears in them, Birds and Bear that may be different from one another and that eat different Foods, etc etc.  There is no better way to Illuminate an Archetype or Assumption that we’ve wrapped our Limited view of Reality around, than for it suddenly to disappear.

Would we notice if suddenly all the Birch Trees disappeared from the Forest?  We might only notice that something had Changed.  But if they reappeared while we were pondering what it was that Changed, then suddenly our Consciousness would have a whole new Perspective on Birch Trees.  This is precisely what happens during an Eclipse; that which we Assume is Constant blinks off for a short time, then returns to its former Glory.  And we’re talking about the Sun, which Symbolizes our Essence.  Hence we consider Eclipses to be about Illumination, and that’s precisely what they are. 

Remember that in the Unconscious there is no Negation.  When you Pray for No War, you’re most likely to get War, because the Unconscious does not have a No in its vocabulary.  As we usually put it, astrology and the Unconscious determine Dimension, but not Direction.  The Cat may still be Alive or Not.  Eclipse is the Absence of Light, as Fear is the Absence of Love.  The Dimensions in those statements are Light and Love.  The Direction – Absence or Presence – is a Political Decision by the Ego, by yourself.

When you make a Decision to Choose Light and Love rather than Absence on any Issue in your Life, you threaten the Karmic or Family or Cultural Archetype that would keep you in Scarcity, with Fire and Fury like the World has never known.  So guess what the Archetype does in return?  It threatens to surround your Ego with Missiles, while its Ally the Ego warns you to seek cover and “not” to look at the flash.  As if you would have time for anything approaching that.  Ego and Archetype are one and the same. 

Hence we always recommend adding “Lovingly and Gently and Rapidly and Completely” to our PIAVAs

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/

PIAVAs directly address the Unconscious.  The Unconscious is in Charge, and one of its “Rules” is that no Prayer goes unanswered – that’s just a Perspective, but we suggest strongly that it’s a Reliable First Approximation and a Useful Perspective.   Use it as a filter to Examine your Life.  Every Negative thought you have is a Prayer.  Every Victim Emotion that you have is a Prayer.  Your Prayers specify the Dimension, and your Negativity and Victimhood specify the Direction.  Thoughts and Emotions are self-reinforcing, and their Negativity and Victimhood reinforce each other.  Your Negative thoughts and Victim Emotions are generated by your Archetypes.

When you PIAVA something and you’re ready to Receive it, the Universe will deliver it, just like Amazon or Taobao.  When you aren’t ready to Receive it, what the Universe will deliver, when you see the Universe through a Benevolent Lens, is Illustration of Why You Haven’t Been Manifesting That All Along.  That often looks like the Opposite of what you Asked for – the same principle as an Eclipse; often the fastest way to get you to Notice something that you’ve been taking for granted, is to Remove it.

There are some things which you have always been Abundant in.  Your Archetypes support your Ego in those arenas.  There are other things that have always been Difficult for you.  Those Define your Self-Sabotaging Archetypes.  Jane Roberts’s (Seth’s) The Nature of Personal Reality is an excellent exposition of this Lens.

Your thoughts and Emotions are not beyond your Control.  Your Ego can Choose to Intervene and Change the Direction.  It may take years of Persistence to shut down a strong Archetype, but never consider it Impossible.  You can PIAVA Assistance in Changing the Direction of the Archetype from Scarcity to Abundance – or vice versa for Abuse, though you’re better off Asking for Respect and Inviolate Boundaries, or whatever it is that you Want, rather than Asking for what you Don’t Want.

In Real Life this is an Either/Or Universe.  Fate is still going on.  If your Fate is to be Rich and Famous and Irresistible, then you may not want to Change it – though “Good” Karma is said to be harder to Change than “Bad” Karma, so when you start to get tired of being Rich and Famous and Irresistible, you may want to PIAVA Choice.  You may want to Choose Rich and Famous and Irresistible on Tuesdays and Fridays, Happy and Private on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and Surprised on Saturdays and Sundays and Mondays – but even that is an Archetype that will be Obsolete soon.

There isn’t much difference between Attention and Intention.  If your Attention is always on Negativity and Scarcity, whether in thought or Emotion, the Unconscious will consider that your Intention, and Manifest it for you.  Your Attention is under your Control.  You may have a nasty Habit of Focusing on your Negative thoughts and Bummer Emotions, and it may take a lot of Work to Change the Habit, but it is doable.  The Key is Noticing and Congratulating.

Rather than beating yourself up when you Notice that you’re Unconsciously indulging your Negativity, Congratulate yourself for Noticing.  You’re substituting Positive Reinforcement for Negative Reinforcement, and the more often you do this, the easier it becomes.  You’ll be surprised at how Effective this simple step is; Congratulate yourself for Noticing that you’re Repeating an undesired Habit, rather than cursing yourself for Repeating the Habit.

This particular Eclipse occurs while Mercury is Retrograde, and the Vedic Eclipse interpretation we linked to at the beginning of this article reads much like the average Western astrology’s interpretation of Mercury Retrograde.  Our approach to Retrogradations is the same as our approach to Eclipses.  But rather than Demanifestation of something routine, a Retrogradation may encourage Obsession on it – not a matter of Dimension, just a matter of Direction, so absolutely available to be Changed by the Ego with PIAVAs and Persistence. 

I usually find Retrogrades to be more Contemplative than Obsessive, but the same Energies apply – Contemplate What you Want, not What you Don’t Want.  If you’re particularly Skilled at Obsession, Obsess on What you Want, not on What you don’t Want.  We’ve already talked about Obsession and Changing the Subject, an important step in PIAVAing

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/08/09/cause-an-defect-full-moon-iv/

If you can’t shake Negative Energy while you’re trying to Focus on What You Want, Tap it Out.  Be sure to measure the Intensity of the Energy before and after Tapping, and Recognize that you may need to Iterate, and even alternate with other forms of PIAVAing.  Persistence counts.

The dwarf planet that deals with our Unlimited Potential is Chaos, which is in the Air Grand Trine and Dynamic Grand Sextile of the recent Full Moon; see the previous post.  It’s joined in the Grand Trine by Haumea/Rebirth and South Node/Karma, but the other three, Fire, points in the Grand Sextile are North Node/Mission and Purpose, Eris/Revelation of Denial, and Lilith-Saturn-Ixion-Pholus/In Order to Achieve Self-Sovereignty the Most Important Thing is that we Become Responsible to our Unique and Probably Forbidden Genius.

The dwarf planet and Centaur Hylonome deals with Letting Go of Archetypes, and the asteroid Juno deals with the Edges of Consciousness.  It’s no Coincidence that they’re Conjunct as we speak.  Hylonome Initiated Juno in February 2017, starting a new 9-year Cycle at 8 Capricorn, “In a Sun-lit home domestic birds sing joyously.”  We’re in the middle of the Exposition (which actually peaked 28 July).  The Confidence-Builder occurs at the September Equinox.

Fear and Love

January 11, 2017

One of the fundamental principles of our Relationship to the Universe is that Fear is Cold and Hard, while Love is Warm and Soft.  Fear creates scar tissue, walling off Physical and Emotional Trauma into pockets that become Unconscious, or Denied.  Again, Denial is a healthy Response to Overwhelm, it’s just not the most Healing Response possible if we have options.  

Next time you scratch or cut or bruise yourself, watch closely how you React.  My “natural” (ie, Habituated) Reaction is to Psychically “seal off” the wound; is yours?  When I Consciously Choose to Open to it, Warm it (in my Imagination or Physically, putting my hand or a wrap on it), and Soften around it, I can Feel the Healing Energy start to flow.  Putting your hand on a wound, or if it reaches putting the wound to your Heart, adds Healing Energy directly.

In Relationship, including our Relationship with ourself, Fear Manifests as either Abandonment or Suffocation.  Some of us React primarily from Abandonment (our Hungry Ghost can’t get enough), some of us primarily from Suffocation (we back away from Love, we have difficulty Receiving), and most of us manage to React from our Abandonment at some times and from our Suffocation at other times.  It’s particularly Frustrating to Experience both at once.

Recognizing Abandonment and Suffocation day-to-day is a good way to Depersonalize the Heavy Emotions that arise in Relationships.  We can replace “Oh my God, they don’t Love me!”  with “Oh, there’s my Abandonment again.”  With a little practice it almost becomes “You poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling your Abandonment again, aren’t you.”  And when someone is clinging to our coattails a little too tightly for our comfort, we can Recognize that they’re in their Abandonment and, recalling our own, we can be Kind to them without having to React or Pretend or call them a disfavored Body part.

Or, if someone is clinging to our coattails a little too tightly for our comfort, we can Recognize that we’re in our Suffocation, and loosen up a little.  Instead of snapping at them or being snitty, we can take a brief Time-Out and give ourself a quick “You poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Suffocated again, aren’t you” or even just a “Oh, there’s my Suffocation again.”  In a Relationship we want to keep and develop, this can make all the difference between their Experiencing us as Cold and Hard, or Experiencing us as Soft and Warm.

Practice this enough, and pretty soon we’re making Conscious Choices moment by moment about how permeable or impenetrable we want our Boundaries to be, tuning our Safety and Vulnerability to the situation at hand, rather than Reacting from the Unconscious Karmic Archetypes and Programmed Trances that previously ran our Life and Relationships.  

This is only one aspect of the Mystery School we’re all enrolled in.  It’s about earning our Self-Sovereignty through becoming Conscious of what we hadn’t Realized was Behavior Motivated by Fear.  Abandonment is Fear that we won’t get what we need.  Suffocation is Fear that we won’t have the space to be who we Really Are.  I’ll wager it won’t take you more than half a minute to see where Abandonment and Suffocation fit into your Relationship Patterns.

We can extend this to Abundance.  When we’re Feeling Scarcity, or Anxious about Survival, what happens when we say to ourself, “Oh, there’s my Abandonment again”?  The Patriarchal Culture programs us to think our Abundance is All Me, completely the result of my own Work or Smarts or Schmoozing.  It’s not.  Before the Lizards invented money, it was all about Community.  You could freeze to death, or starve all on your own, but you couldn’t do much else without your Community.  Outside the propaganda storm, it’s still that way.

Next time you catch yourself hating what you have to do to make money, tell yourself “Oh, there’s my Suffocation again.”  Very few of our Emotions are “Caused” by what the acculturated Mind thinks they’re Triggered by.  If it’s “I hate this job” your Projecting your Suffocation on your job, and you’re in a Cold and Hard place besides.  You could even tap on “Even though I Feel Suffocated doing this, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself.”  You’d be withdrawing the Projection and moving to Soft and Warm in a few sequences.

That alone could shift you into Gratitude and help you Realize that you already are in Community, even if it’s not exactly the Community you ultimately Want to Manifest.  The next step would be Realizing that you’ve Proven to yourself that you do know how to Create Community.  Then you can PIAVA whatever Improvements you’d like to see in your Community, and sooner or later you’d find yourself Planning and Executing steps in that direction.

Owning your Abandonment and Suffocation as your own endogenous Emotional processes – Emotions that arise without Clear External Triggers, even though, sure, your Mind can easily find a hundred faux current-moment rationalizations – will put you in a position of Neutrality.  Neutrality is necessary to be Fully Present in the Moment so you can Manifest directly without having to make it into a Struggle.  

Griz doesn’t Struggle to find Huckleberries to add pudge to see Her through Her long winter’s nap, she just Sniffs the Air, senses the Changing Light, hears the Hucklebushes calling her name, and knows it’s time to go up the Mountain for her sweet and savory Autumn feast.  Yes, sometimes the Huckleberry crop fails and She wakes us hungry mid-winter and has to raid Huper cabins to get through, but that’s not much of a Struggle either, since Hupers make their doors so flimsy.  We only Struggle because we get Attached to our Beliefs and Project our unpleasant Feelings into our surroundings.

Like John Said…

Remember Both/And; Truth is Different for each of us because Truth resides in the Heart, not in the mind’s Duality.  Even if this is not your Truth, it may be useful to you, as all New Perspectives are.  New Perspectives may help you Let Go of Judgment of Others, they may help you Let Go of Unconscious Limiting Beliefs, and they may Grow Corn for you in Unusual Circumstances.

2017, which is a Tenth-Harmonic (Abundance) Year, begins with dwarf planet Makemake Stationary.  A planet is at its Strongest when it’s Stationary.  The Essence of Makemake is Manifestation.  As John said…

But first we need to get past this week’s once-in-a-millennium Funfest.  Actually, though, since they’re co-incident, we need to interpret them as one astroevent.  How we Respond to this week will have a big Impact on how our Manifestation Skills shift in the New Year.  There are many Keys to that process…

(1) The Most Important Thing is inviting our Abandoned Genius to come Home.  Treat them like a Wild Animal that you’re trying to tame.  Offer them a Treat – like maybe an Open Heart to them, then step back and sit down, facing slightly away, so they don’t think you’re watching them (Change the Subject).  Then – sit quietly and Wait.  As long as it takes.  You can’t approach them directly.  You have to Demonstrate your Loving Kindness, Be Open and Inviting but Neutral and Non-Attached, and Let Them Approach You.  If you do that, they will come, you just don’t know how long it will take, so you need Patience.  

(2) You have Time, you don’t need to rush.  What you do need to do is to Show Them Consistency, and Avoid sudden moves that would Startle them.  Find your Space of Loving Kindness, and Apologize to your Abandoned Genius  for Allowing them be Banished from your Life.  Don’t Punish yourself, it was something you had to do in order to Survive at the Time, and your Safety was then paramount.  But Feel their Pain and Abandonment, over having been Banished all these years.  Then PIAVA that they Return to You, Let It Go, and send them Love.  Then after a while – several to many hours – check to see if you’ve Learned anything.  Then Do It Again.

(3) While you’re doing the Processes above and below, hold a Crystal or Jewel or Stone in your hand.  Choose one that you feel very Safe and Loving with.  If it’s wearable, great, wear it all week.  If not, keep it in a pocket if you can.  If it’s too big for that, put in a Sacred Space and Be There or Visualize it as you begin each of these Processes (do these whenever you think of it all week – constantly if possible!).  If you don’t have the perfect Crystal handy, gaze at this one…

Annabergite 3952 photo:J.Buss

Print it out (from http://www.jbuss.com/jbl4d/annabergite1.htm ) and carry it with you; that’s your Abandoned Genius sparkling there in the center, as It – that is, You, the Abandoned part of You – struggles to escape the maw that’s about to devour It – that is, You, your historical You.

(4) Be Compassionate with any Pain you Feel.  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really hurting aren’t you.”  Then put your thoughts on something else.  After a while you can check in again to see if you’re still in Pain.  If you aren’t, spend a few minutes in Gratitude.  If you are still (or again) in Pain, give yourself another “You poor Sweetheart…”  When You are Hurting, that’s literally True – You Are Hurt.  When you give yourself a “You poor Sweetheart…” You aren’t Hurt any more, You Are Compassion.  And Empathy Heals.  

(5) You don’t have to Fix anything or Change anything, you just have to be Loving and Gentle with yourself.  It’s actually The Most Important Thing.  Ask yourself, “I Wonder what would happen if I Trusted that my own Empathy is Enough to Heal Myself.”  Don’t seek Answers, just stay in Wonder as long as you can.  If you want you can Imagine that it’s True, then look to see what your Inner Eye sees.  If you see Peace, you’re Golden.  If you see Trouble, Ask what you’re Feeling there, and give yourself another “You poor Sweetheart…” about that.  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Doubt, aren’t you.”

(6) You are Learning a Paradox about how…

  • Self-Sovereignty (which includes Doing and Having What you Want)

is Related to… 

  • Being Truthful with Yourself about What you Fear

The Relationship isn’t Logical, so don’t try to make it so.  Imagine how you’ll Feel when you can Do and Have exactly what you Want to Do and Have, moment to moment.  Then Ask yourself if you have any Yes-Buts.  Take them one by one, and convert them to Yes-Ands.  This is a Paradox, remember, it doesn’t make sense.  Maybe something like… “I Have Complete Freedom and Abundance, Yes, And my Life is falling apart because I’m not honoring my ten zillion Commitments!”  Or… “I Have Complete Freedom and Abundance, Yes, And how am I treating other people?”  Then just Change the Subject.  Nothing to Solve, nothing to Fix, just another Paradox.  Trust a Perfect Unfoldment; you just See Through a Glass Darkly.

(7) Be on the lookout for Ego Death.  The Signs are Thinking “I’d rather Die” or “I’d do anything for Love, but I won’t do That,” Not recognizing the landmarks in your own neighborhood, Feeling Confused, Not being able to keep your regular schedule, Feeling like you’re just now meeting old friends or colleagues for the first time.  It’s like you’re a Walk-In, but you aren’t.  It’s Weird.  An Ego Death is actually an Ego Rebirth.  It’s exactly what you Crave.  Our natural Reaction is to do everything we can to Prevent a Death/Rebirth; you want to do everything you can to be Loving and Gentle with it.  You’re a Babe in Arms, put yourself to your Breast, rock, and coo.

(8) Every Memory, Flashback, Vignette, and Historical Flash you Receive is Significant.  This is what it’s about.  They’re all either…

  • Related to how you were before your “Betters” Abandoned/Abused you
  • Related to the chronic or acute Traumas that characterized or precipitated your Abandonment
  • Related to your resulting Lifetime Self-Abandonment
  • Related to the many episodes in your Life where you exercised your now-Habitual Self-Abandonment (any “If-Only-I’d-Have…” Flashbacks?)
  • Related to your Shoulds (which are all Self-Abandonments)
  • Related to the Limiting Beliefs and Karmic Archetypes that are Lit Up so you can become Conscious of them and Choose to Let them Go
  • Related to episodes of Genuine Self-Love and Self-Care (for Contrast)

Or several/many/ all of the above.

As we’ve said, these are Big Doin’s.

Makemake’s Exact Retrograde Station is at 3pm PST on 2 January.

Confusion and Leavia

June 25, 2016

This is very timely…

https://alchemicalastrology.wordpress.com/2016/06/25/pluto-teachings-on-impermanence/

Confusion is the first stage of Growth.

As Saturn Wanes toward Neptune over the next several years, we need to expect a Breakdown in the Definition (Saturn) of our Cultures (Neptune) that will require (Saturn) us all to shift our primary Perspective away from Matter and toward Spirit (Neptune). 

Someone on the BBC referred to Britain as being divided into two countries, Leavia and Remainia.  It’s amazing how much Fear-based propaganda is being thrown at Leavia – which I guess shouldn’t be surprising, since Remainia was a project of the Corporate Elites and their Fellow Travelers.  London was all Remainia – London is Britain’s “Wall Street.”  When do we get NAFTexit?

The Future hasn’t been Co-Created yet.  Our corner of it will be influenced greatly by what we PIAVA – including all those Unconscious and Semi-Conscious PIAVAs that we put out there under the guise of Anxiety.  Though it should help to Cancel, Neutralize, Upgrade those, and replace them as quickly as we can with PIAVAs for What We Do Want for ourself and for our role in the World.

“My power is over myself, is over how I learn to master myself.  Not about how I suppress my emotions but, more perhaps, about how I can work with these powerful energies.  CONSCIOUSLY.”

Yes, Power With ourself, not Power Over.  The difference is subtle and Powerful, critical for Co-Creating a desirable Future, and well described by Starhawk’s amazing and Life-Changing book Truth or Dare.  

Empathy with Self is fundamental.  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re feeling uncomfortable Emotions, aren’t you.  I Wonder what it would be like to Embrace them, to Locate them in my Body and put all of my Attention there, Lovingly and Gently.”  My own Response to doing this – when I remember to do it (Ay, there’s the rub, eh?!?), is a feeling of Ecstasy, though not always right away.  Maybe I can PIAVA to remember more often.

“It’s about finding ways to keep yourself centered so nothing (am I deluding myself?!) can throw you off balance.  Nothing!

Alas, we do need to be Vulnerable, and Embrace Confusion for itself, without trying to Change it.  Resistance to Vulnerability and Confusion is a serious Growth-preventing Limiting Belief.  Maybe we can resolve the apparent Contradiction by counting Both “Centered” And “Uncentered” as two distinct Emotions, and PIAVAing “how to work with these powerful energies Consciously” so we can build new Patterns that will allow us to Embrace them both automatically, before they throw us off Balance enough that we can’t Recover our Grounding in a short time.

“Feeling fearful or anxious won’t make any situation better.”

No, but we do need to Embrace our Fear as a valid Emotion (and Tap it out when it Feels Overwhelming – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4 ).  And Learn to quickly recognize Anxiety as mental noise that keeps us from Feeling uncomfortable Emotions, so we can get right to work Learning how to Lovingly and Gently Embrace those Emotions, Rapidly and Completely.

Uranus-Eris I

June 7, 2016

There are several layers to the 8-9 June Eris Initiation of Uranus.  The Initiation, and the next Century that it colors (the Cycle lasts about a Century), is about Abundance – Abundance of Spirit, and Abundance of the Material toys that Spirit likes to play with.  Abundance, of course, means Having Enough to Share.

Uranus symbolizes our Connection to our Individual Soul, and Eris represents the Revelation of what’s been Denied – and what threatens to remain Denied.  This is the Energy we’ve been dealing with all year so far: Removing our Masks, getting Honest with ourself, Insights about our Limiting Unconscious Beliefs, the Ego Death we need to endure in order to Expand into our Life Mission, and most prominently the Rebirth we’re Experiencing in the process.

Where has your Attention been so far this year?  On the Ego Death, or on the Rebirth?  If you Learn to recognize the symptoms of Ego Death, you can put its discomfort into Perspective while you look forward to, and PIAVA, the glorious Future your Rebirth promises.  Intention follows Attention.  The more you dwell on the Ego Death, the more you’re likely to depress your Future.

Details

(1)  The Big Picture in the first layer is all about the Rebirth.  As Rebirths go, this one is Blessed.  If we can be Present with the difficulties that are normal for Ego Death and Rebirth, the result promises Abundance of Spiritual and Material rewards.

(2)  A complexity that could hinder the Grace if allowed to develop negatively (for instance, if we failed to Love our Fear to Death, or if we sank into Despair about how distant we seem to be from Living from our True, Effortless, Joyful, Playful, Shameless Talents), can be resolved by PIAVAing “Ganeshi, please remove all Obstacles between me and Embracing my Despair” and “I Affirm that my most Powerful Skills are available for me to use without Fear.”  Or something like that.

(3)  Recovery of the Soul’s message that we’ve been Denying (seeking Truth) will leverage the Energy locked in our Fear of (Ego) Death, and in our Despair, to Power an even more profound Rebirth.  Think about it; haven’t you been thinking about how your Future looks and Feels more inviting to you than it has in a while?  Haven’t you been smiling to yourself more often in the last several days?

(4)  All year we’ve been unavoidably dwelling on what’s not been working, because it’s forced us to detour from our regular schedule to put out the Brushfires and frighten away the Wolves.  Well, we should be done with that now.  In the process we’ve Let Go of a lot of old baggage we no longer need, and, now streamlined, we’re Free to Manifest our Heart’s Desire.

(5)  The ring-pass-not between Ego Death and Rebirth is Confusion.  Most of us instantaneously convert our Confusion to either Fear or Anger, or both.  Use that Energy to protect your Boundaries, either by taking precautions against whatever your Fear warns against, or by Safely expressing your Anger to those who would Abuse you.  Then, when you’re Safe, go back and look for the Confusion beneath the Fear or Anger.

There’s a Question there – what is it?  Maybe “Why don’t people Respect me?” or “Why are people so Selfish?” or “What did I ever do to them?”  Whatever it is, make it into a PIAVA.  Maybe “I Wonder how I might command Respect” or “What would it Feel like to be as Selfish as they are, without violating my own Values” or “God/Goddess, please show me how I might Act differently, that would produce a better result.”

Think about the areas of your Life that have been working just fine.  “I Wonder what’s different about my Energy in these areas that are working, in contrast to my Energy in the areas that aren’t working.”

(6)  A major result of this Ego-Death Rebirth, is that we will be permanently Changed, as we are Learning to apply our Energy directly toward our Desires in a very Sustainable way.  You’ve probably already detected those Changes, eh?

The Astrology

(1)  The Eris-Uranus Initiation, which takes place at 24 Aries (a Vision of Abundance) is at the base of a Haumea Kite (Rebirth with Grace).  Haumea is Conjoined by the asteroid Nemesis – Rebirth is the Nemesis of the Olde Ego.  The arms of the Kite are Sappho (Self-Love) and Ixion (our Forbidden Genius).  The Grand Trine that forms the body of the Kite shines great Grace on the mantra of Soul-Love-Genius.  The Kite itself promises Rebirth into this mantra.

(2)  The arms of the Kite form the Trine atop a Square Fez, as both Sappho and Ixion are Squared by planets one Sign away on either side of Uranus-Eris.  In this Square Fez, the determining Quincunxes are Sappho-to-Chiron (Embracing our Despair) and Ixion-to-Sedna (Overcoming Fear of Embracing our Forbidden Genius).  The secret to resolving a Fez is to Surrender any difficulty in the Squares (Sedna-to-Sappho, or Fear to Love, and Ixion-to-Chiron, or Despair over ever being able to pursue our Deepest Desires), to the Mystery (ie, PIAVA) of the Quincunxes.  Sedna is Conjoined by Mercury and Atropos (Awareness of Fear of Death, or Awareness of the Death of Fear).

(3)  Chiron and Sedna-Mercury-Atropos make a Yod to Haumea-Nemesis.  Uranus-Eris makes it into a Yod Kite.  I’m told by my CAO that folks call this a Boomerang Yod, and that the focus remains on the point of the Yod (Haumea-Nemesis), but with the Power of Uranus-Eris acting like a bow-string to activate Haumea-Nemesis (Ego Death/Rebirth) even more strongly.

(4)  This Fez overlain on a Trine Kite makes a huge Five-Pointed Star (Manifestation, Power, Magic), also pointing at Haumea-Nemesis – Yet another Booster for Rebirth into our Future.  It looks a little like a Jack-in-the-box hidden inside one of those old wire-handled white thin-cardboard take-out containers from a Chinese restaurant.  We might even call the Configuration a Jack-in-the-Box, or a Chinese Takeout.

(5)  Mars (Energy, Anger) butts in, Opposing Sedna-Mercury-Atropos, and making a T-Square (Mastery through Challenge) to Sappho, in Leo, doubling our Challenge to Self-Love.  The Vacancy (26 Aquarius) that will make this into a Balanced Grand Cross is about Innovation – taking what you know about one field, and applying it to solve a problem in another field.

(6)  Mars is one corner of the foot of a Quintile Yod pointing at Ceres (Sustainability), along with Jupiter, which is Conjunct the North Node (Expanding into our Lifetime Mission, and into more directly pursuing our Desires).
