Self-Empathy

February 17, 2018

Reader K says…

“I’m always happy to hear more (and again) about Poor-Sweethearting, Despair, and Miracles.”

This is Chiron stuff.  Most of youalls probably know Chiron as the Wounded Healer, or the Healer with the Unhealable Wound, Unhealable because it was caused by a Poisoned Spear thrown by another Centaur.  The “mental-physical-spiritual-emotional” correlate is the Held Emotions and Toxic chemicals that clog our Microtubules and block our Intuitions.

We put “mental-physical-spiritual-emotional” in quotes because while we’re used to thinking of the Mental and the Physical and the Spiritual and the Emotional (in astrology Air, Earth, Fire, and Water) as different Realms or different “Levels” of our Identity, they’re in fact different Perspectives on our Identity, which is actually Unitary (and of course simultaneously Multifarious). 

For example, if you try to Separate Thoughts from Emotions, you quickly Discover that they’re Circular, each reinforcing the other. 

In post-Boryshenko Medicine, the Mind and Body are so intimately intertwined that it’s counter-productive to try to Separate them. 

Ever seen Prayers work to Heal the Physical?  Body and Spirit are not Separate Entities, they’re just different ways of Seeing the Singular Identity.

The Centaur is half Huper and half Animal, and the Animal half – Horse – is very Strong.  That represents Consciousness and the Unconscious.  Who needs Tortoises and Hares; Imagine trying to outrun a Horse, and you can see how futile it is to try to outsmart the Unconscious.  Its weapons are Toxic, and there is no cure.  Just ask Shakespeare or Oedipus how easy it is to Overpower the Unconscious.  The Classical view is that it’s Hopeless.

We have a whole Technology for addressing the Unconscious – PIAVA we call it, for Prayer-Intention-Asking-Visualizing-Affirming – and it’s Magnetic or Indirect, not Dynamic or Direct.  It’s about Asking, not Telling (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/), though there’s a special case for “Commanding.” 

Our aim here of course is to help us all Grow our Consciousness to include more of what is now Unconscious or Semi-Conscious.  On the Personal level (or Perspective), we refer to this as our Karma, Habits, Patterns, Archetypes, especially those that are Self-Sabotaging. 

There are Cultural levels as well; for instance, in the Midwestern US, it’s Culturally appropriate to be “Nice” instead of Honest, which can make a big dent in our Authenticity.  With enough repetition, we’re unable to tell what’s really Authentically us, and what’s been Programmed into the Unconscious.  Since Manifesting What We Want often requires Authenticity, that’s important.  We see the same process happening in the Culture’s Programming of women and minorities as inferior.

So, this notion that we’re Unhealably Slaves to our Karma and to the Unconscious, doesn’t fit with our goal of Growing our Consciousness.  Fortunately, there is a Savior to Rescue us, named Empathy.  Eugene Gendlin, of “Focusing” fame, studied a number of psychotherapeutic methods to see if any worked better than the others.  He found that method didn’t much matter; what mattered was whether the therapist was Empathetic.  Empathy Heals.

And does Empathy Heal the Unhealable?  Absolutely. 

We use a very simple process to Initiate Empathy – we say to ourself, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Unhappy, aren’t you.”  Or, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’ve been Wounded by a Poison Spear, haven’t you.”  Or even, “You Poor Sweetheart, you were really Helpless against your uncle’s Abuse, weren’t you.” 

There’s no exclamation mark, your voice drops at the end of the sentence, as if you were trying to comfort your best friend.  It’s not quite a Question, but say it tentatively enough that your friend (or in this case, “you”) can correct you.  “No, it wasn’t my uncle, it was my stepfather.”  “No, I’m not Unhappy, I’m Terrified.”  “No, Silly, not a Poison Spear, I Twisted my Ankle.”  You won’t always get an answer, but sometimes you will, and when you do, it’s Powerful.

Folks say it’s okay to talk to yourself, but when you answer, you’re on the Edge.  Yes, the Edge of Healing.  If a part of you Responds to your Poor-Sweetheart, and you can strike up a Conversation, that’s a Big Step toward bringing important parts of the Unconscious into your Consciousness.  Fritz Perls developed a whole School or Psychology around this process.

We refer to it as the Unconscious rather than our Unconscious because the Unconscious isn’t entirely Personal.  If we View it as partially Personal (Karmic, for instance), that’s useful, but it’s just a Perspective. 

If you were able to shift your Identity to include not just your Ego but also the Unconscious, you’d instantly Grok what’s meant by We Are All One.  It doesn’t really make sense to our Mentality, because it’s not Either/Or, and the mind knows only Duality.

You don’t need a Response to your Poor-Sweetheart from some hidden part of yourself.  In fact, if you just Change the Subject – do something else and forget about what you just did, that’s when Miracles will occur.

Let’s say you Notice that you’re Discouraged.  “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re really Discouraged, aren’t you.”  Then you do something else, preferably something that takes your Attention off of what you were thinking about or Feeling before you Poor-Sweethearted yourself.  You can still Feel Discouraged, but be Discouraged about something else.

A Day or so later, look to see what you’re Feeling.  I predict you won’t be Discouraged any more.

The poster child for Poor Sweethearing is Despair.  The Unhealable Healer is in Despair because he’s unable to see outside of his Despair.  There’s a whole World outside of his Despair, but he doesn’t know it because he can’t See it.  We’re in Despair when we no longer believe that What We Want is possible.  “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Despair, aren’t you.”

You’re doing something similar when you Tap Out your Unpleasant or Overwhelming Feelings.  You start by phrasing the Truth about the Emotion that you’re actually Feeling.  Then you Balance your Meridians, which Changes everything.  All Dis-Ease is just a symptom of being Out of Balance.  Balance is Ease.

Poor-Sweethearting is about Identity.  When “I am Feeling Despair,” that’s a statement of Identity.  You – your State of Being – and Despair are Merged.  Short of Enlightenment, we can’t step out of Identity.  But we can Change our Identity. 

When we step outside of our Despairing self, look back at who we were Identified with, and say Compassionately, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Despair, aren’t you.” then we no longer are Despair, we’re now Identified with Compassion instead.  There’s the part of ourself that is/was Identified with Despair, and now we’ve created a new part of ourself that’s Identified with Compassion.  And you-as-Despair is now history, while you-as-Compassion is now Present Moment.

This sounds like a grammatical trick, but it’s not.  It’s a trick of Identity.  Once you’re Identified with Compassion, the walled-in World of Despair is no longer your World.  There are any number of new Possibilities that didn’t exist when you were in Despair.  This is the Miracle.  You’ve just Manifested the Possibility of things that were inconceivable in your previous Despairing World.  Miracles are just things that are routine in other Realities than the one you’re in.

Because of the depth of our Beliefs in the Illusion that the Physical World is Substantial and the other Worlds are relatively Insubstantial (there are Subcultures for whom each of the other three Perspectives are Substantial), and because this Illusion is Enforced so adamantly by Western Culture, it may take a lot of Practice to go from “I am Sick” to “You Poor Sweetheart, you Feel Sick, don’t you” to “I am Healthy.” 

It’s by no means impossible.  We could certainly do it in 5D, if we ever slipped out of 5D long enough to “be Sick.”  But we need to start small and build up our Belief that Poor-Sweethearting really works before we can shift our Identity so profoundly.  As Steven Levine used to say, “Don’t start with the 300-pound weight.”

The dwarf planet Chiron is the fulcrum around which our cup – half full or half empty – is measured.  At the turn of the current Century, Chiron was Initiated by Pluto in 12 Sagittarius, “A flag turning into an Eagle turning into a Rooster saluting the Dawn”: Narrow Identity turning into Broad Perspective turning into Enlightenment.  This is a 70-year Cycle.  The Energy “becomes Mainstream” (the Waxing Square) around 2030.

Chiron is now 66 Degrees ahead of Pluto; that’s two elevenths of the way ’round the Zodiacal loop.  A Decile is one tenth and an Unx is one twelfth, but I can’t find an English word that means one eleventh.  So we’ll have to Create one.  The German word for eleven is elf, so we’ll refer to two elevenths as a Bielfin Angle.  The Eleventh Harmonic symbolizes Strength, Lustre, Creativity, and the Second Harmonic Ritual.

This is fitting.  We have our Compulsion (Pluto) to convert Pain into Miracles (Chiron) on the road to Enlightenment by adopting a Ritual (Poor-Sweetheart) for Restoring our Strength and Creativity (Bielfin), and making us Shine again.

Ritual is dangerous, because it eventually morphs into Limiting Beliefs, especially when it’s passed down to new generations that weren’t involved in its formulation and so come to see it as “just the way the World Is.”  We’re not Swearing an Oath to uphold Poor-Sweetheart, so it’s a Both/And, not an Either/Or, so there’s some hope there that it won’t create a Cult.

Ritual is like any other Habit; it should be Consciously tested occasionally to see what alternatives there are, and to see if we’re actually Choosing the most appropriate alternative for the Situation at hand.

Time’s Up I

January 13, 2018

Eris was the Lady who, failing to receive an invitation to the Big Party, tossed a Golden Apple, inscribed “To the fairest of them all,” into the Party, putting the other Big-Name Goddesses at the Party into a long-lasting tither that eventually led to the famed Trojan War.  Eris thus becomes the Goddess of “Discord and Strife,” and  Greek Mythology disses women as jealous and petty.  Once we realize that the Greek Mythos was the literary vehicle that described or proscribed the replacement of the Matriarchy by the Patriarchy, we can understand the motives behind the Myth, and reframe our interpretation of the dwarf planet that bears Eris’s name. 

We’ve Chosen to interpret Eris as the Revelation of what’s been Denied.  Recall though that, contrary to the common use of the word as a thinly veiled insult, Denial is a Healthy process that Protects the Ego from what would otherwise Overwhelm it, until the Ego is ready to deal with it, ie, until Eris comes along.  Since the Ego is in charge of insuring the Survival of it’s Vehicle (which is you or me), Denial is an important Survival Skill.  Till it’s not.

As greater Consciousness Descends onto Planet Earth, or the Earth Ascends into greater Harmony, depending on whom you ask, large portions of what’s been Denied are forcing their way into our Consciousness.  #MeToo, for instance, and now #ShitholePresident.  Imagine a future historian, needing only one source, Twitter.  The Patriarchy was not born overnight.  As Hupers gained more control over their Environment, the underlying Story shifted from Everything-We-Fear to Everything-We-Control, with a corresponding Inflation of the Ego.  Born out of Competition with the Matriarchy, Competition became the Foundation of the Patriarchy.

Which brings us to the Present Moment, where Competition is reaching the Limits of its Utility, and begs to be replaced with Cooperation.  This last week, dwarf planet Eris was at its Strongest (Stationary, Exact 10 January at 2am PST).  Eris is still Traveling with Uranus (our Soul-Self) – they’re less than two Degrees apart, so it wouldn’t hurt to review their Initiation, https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/06/03/eris-uranus-new-moon/.

It’s often said that “Timing is Everything,” and we agree.  If you’re in the Right Place at the Right Time, everything can fall into place Effortlessly – one of the reasons why we put such a heavy emphasis on PIAVAing – the Masculine Dynamic Creative Process can Manifest a lot, but unless Complemented by excellent Intuition and Flexibility, it can be consummately Destructive, as our Planet is Witnessing.  On the other hand, the Feminine Magnetic Creative Process, which we abbreviate as PIAVA, is capable of “Controlling” (actually, Coordinating) many variable far beyond the scope of the Dynamic Process.  (See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/ to review PIAVA).

For instance, many are Dynamically Manifesting Abundance, which as Catherine Ponder remind us (in The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity), means Having Enough to Share.  But can we Dynamically Manifest Abundance that Benefits All Sentient Beings?  Not so Easy to even Plan, let alone Do.  But it’s Easy to PIAVA – for example, “Ganeshi my Love, please Remove All Obstacles to Manifestation of Abundance for All Sentient Beings.”  Sure, you can scoff at that as silly, but what if everyone made that Prayer every day.  How the World would Change relative to everyone Competing to take their own Abundance away from Others.

A major Hindrance to Manifesting Magnetically is that our own Limiting Beliefs will prevent us from Noticing when key portions of our PIAVA fall into place, because our Limiting Beliefs block our Intuition.  As we’ve explained many times, we circumvent that using the Change-the-Subject and Pay-Attention elements of PIAVA, Poor-Sweethearting, and Tapping, in order to Let Go of our Limiting Beliefs and Karmic Archetypes.  A huge part of our Intuition and our Manifestation is Timing.  Being in the wrong place at the Right Time, or the Right Place at the wrong time to Notice and Receive our Blessing, does us no good.

In astrology, Timing is governed by the Seventh Harmonic.  It represents what Don Juan meant when he was always telling Grasshopper Castaneda to “Save his Energy.”  The Tarot equivalent is The Chariot – Stillness and Motion.  The Essence is that Movement is necessary, but it’s wasted if it’s not at the Right Time in the Right Place.  We don’t often see the Seventh Harmonic (multiples of one seventh of the Zodiacal Loop, or 51½ Degrees, the “Septile”) very often, and Configurations or Combinations of Seventh-Harmonic Angles are even rarer. 

Of course the main reason we don’t see it is because it’s not a multiple of the thirty Degrees that the Zodiac is divided into – it’s Easy to Notice the alignment between ten Degrees of Leo and ten Degrees of Libra, a lot harder to Notice that ten Degrees of Leo are also aligned with two Degrees of Libra.  However, the software I use tallies Septiles, so I watch for Septile Configurations in every chart I draw.  Of all the charts I publish in this diary, not many include Septile Configrations.

All of which is only an introduction to this week’s Energy; the chart of the 10 January Eris Station we mentioned earlier features a Strong Seventh-Harmonic Pattern, drawn here in purple…

A “Grand Septile” consists of seven planets equally spaced around the Loop; here we have five of the seven, which form their own Pattern.  Recognize the shape, even though it’s “upside down”?

Image result for chrysalis

Let’s call this Configuration a Chrysalis, and in the process preserve the implication of  Imminent Transformation. 

There’s a clear emphasis on the “top” (which on the chart here is pointing down), a Pluto-Sun-Venus or Mandatory-Essence-Values Stellium (which means a Group of three or more planets).  Mandatory-Essence-Values.  That’s pretty heavy, and certainly applies to #MeToo – we Need to Focus on the Essence of our True Values, and quit Denying the constant Violations of it.  And it’s been a major emphasis of the International critiques of #ShitholePresident.

There are three purple wedges here, which are Septile Yods.  A Yod or Finger of God is the astrological equivalent of ACHTUNG! – “PAY ATTENTION!”  In the Seventh Harmonic it means Pay Attention to the Timing here, or quite literally, when combined with an Eris Station, Time’s Up!  for that Denial.  One of the Septile Yods points to the Pluto Stellium at the “head” of the Chrysalis. 

The other two Septile Yods point to the base of the Chrysalis – these are the Foundations of the Shift in Timing…

  • Dwarf planet Chaos says that It’s Time to Expand Waaay Beyond What You’re Accustomed To!
  • Ceres-North Node says that It’s Time to Make Your Mission on the Planet in the Lifetime the Permanent Focus of your Attention!

Which leaves the two “Shoulders” of the Chrysalis, which we can consider to be the Supporting Cast of the Change…

  • Neptune says that It’s Time to Avoid Material Confusion by shifting our Perspective to the Spiritual – or of course by Rejecting the mind’s attempts to Analyze the source of our Confusion, and Accepting it as an Emotion in its own Right, one that we need to just Sit With and Feel, without trying to Change it.  Confusion is the first stage of Growth.
  • Asteroids Vesta and Karma in combination tell us that It’s Time to Let Go of the Unconscious Archetypes that have been running our Life so far.  We’ve been writing about that in many recent posts.

The Initiation of Vesta by Karma occurred at 11am PST on 8 January, in 27 Scorpio, “A military band marches noisily on through city streets.”  Notice that it’s not at War, but it is trained for Warfare, and making a Statement loud and clear – It’s Time to stop letting your Unconscious Karmic Beliefs run your Life, and celebrate it with noisy fanfare; It’s Time to Speak Up when we Witness Discrimination or Abuse!

We can peek at the Future of our Emergent Butterfly by looking at the other tight Conjunctions and Sign Changes in the chart that aren’t related by Angle to the Septiling planets…

  • Pholus Initiates Klotho 9 January (5am PST) in 30 Sagittarius – “The Pope blessing the faithful”; A New Timeline for our sense of Responsibility.  Not about Blame, but about what we’re Willing to Respond to.  It’s Time to use our Spiritual Authority to Actively Reinforce Inclusive Behavior and Discourse.
  • Quaoar Initiates Klotho 13 January (8am PST) in 1 Capricorn – “An Indian chief claims power from the assembled tribe”; a New Timeline for our sense of Ultimate Authority, which flows from the Heart.  It’s Time to Recognize that we have the Political Authority to Speak our Truth.  Don’t worry about whether or not it’s Accepted by others; Truths that are Ready to Overcome Denial by the Collective will be Accepted, others will wait patiently, but your Voice is a Vote in the Consensus-Building Process.
  • Hylonome Initiates Lilith 1 February in 10 Capricorn – “An albatross feeding from the hand of a sailor”; It’s Time to Let Go of Inhibitions to our Self-Sovereignty and Fully Support Cooperation over Competition.
  • Sappho is moving from Capricorn into Aquarius – We’ve been Focused on the Practical and Private elements of increasing our Self-Love; now It’s Time to Extend our Self-Love into our Relationship with our Community by Speaking our Truth Out Loud.
  • Klotho is moving from Sagittarius into Capricorn – The New Timelines we’ve been Creating recently have been about Letting Go of Inhibitions; now It’s Time to Use our Newfound Clarity to Help to Fix What’s Wrong.

Never forget that the First Rule is Safety First.  Everyone will be trying to outshout everyone else, including the Racists and Bigots.  You don’t need to be Bullied, and it’s okay to Step Back rather than Argue.  Say your Peace and step toward those who are Speaking in Alignment with you.  Hupers can’t resist gravitating toward what’s Popular, so gradually people who aren’t fully Committed to their Truth will drift over toward a different Truth, to try that on to see if it suits them better. 

As Groups form, those Committed to False Truths will gradually Feel their Shame and step down, either recanting or disappearing.  The Sociopaths will keep Shouting, but they’ll end up Friendless on their soapbox Shouting into the Wind.  The Truths that are Ready for their Time will come forth.  You don’t need to Force them, just to Let Your Own Truth be Known, in a Safe manner.

We’ll talk about Ego Death, and its impact on apparent Safety, in the next post when we talk about the rest of the Eris-Station chart.

 

 

Full Moon Scramble IV

December 5, 2017

You’ve undoubtedly noticed that the 3 December Full Moon chart is quite busy, peppered with nine out of twelve “corners” or points within a few Degrees of the 12-Degree Full Moon.  (We always round UP to the next Degree – 11:00 is expressed as 11 Degrees, but 11:01 through 11:59 is expressed as 12 Degrees; to make sense of this, consider that Aries 0:21 is in the first Degree of Aries.)  We’ve often seen this sort of Pattern busy-ness, but it’s usually been in the 20-30-Degree range.  The latest example was the most recent New Moon (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/11/18/scary-new-moon/).  That chart has eight “corners” in it – that is, eight of the twelve Signs were activated within a few Degrees of the 27-Degree New Moon.

Well, this is significant, because we often promote the Trioctile Angle as a signifier of Insight – the Trioctile is three eighths of the way ’round the Loop, and the Eighth Harmonic implies Rebalancing while the Third Harmonic means Love with Wisdom.  So the Trioctile Guides us toward Adjusting our trajectory so it’s more Aligned with the Directions we’re Intending to go.  The Trioctile is 4½ Signs, and since half a Sign is 15 Degrees, 4½ Signs from the 12-Degree Full Moon is 27 Degrees of the Signs that are appropriately distant.  So with many 12ish Degrees and many 27ish Degrees Lit Up, we can expect to Encounter a lot of Trioctiles, and hence a lot of Insights.

While our major emphasis in astrology is on the Angles between planets, there are so many of those (one for each pair of planets) that we focus on Configurations – where the Angles form a familiar Pattern and sum to 360 Degrees, which fills the Circle.  The Configuration that results from two adjacent Trioctiles is the Mjölnir, which is two Trioctiles that join on one end, and on the other end are separated by three Signs (a “Square”).  Since a Square represents a Challenge (to Mastery of course), Insights about how to Respond to it are always welcome.  So we consider the Mjölnir to represent Epiphany.

And with lots of planets near 12 Degrees and lots of planets near 27 Degrees, we have to Expect many Epiphanies.  What do we actually find in this Full Moon chart?  Eight Mjölnirs, eight Epiphanies.  That’s Exciting…

The red lines are of course the Squares, and the ghostly metallic lines the Trioctiles. How do we read them?  The planet at the tip of the Mjölnir triangle is a likely messenger to deliver Insights about Frustrations that the Squares create.  Let’s start with a relatively simple example…

  • The Square from Moon to Orcus, both Trioctile to Juno.  The Square tells us that we’re Challenged (Square) to Align our Vows and Promises (Orcus, which is Stationary, or Strong) with our Passion for WhatWeWant to Manifest (Moon).  Since we are Co-Creators or Manifesters by nature, when we have Blocks to Manifestation – for instance Vows of Poverty or Chastity or Revenge, perhaps Past-Life – we need to move the Blocks out of our Field.  The Mjölnir tells us how, in this case by Expanding our Consciousness (Juno symbolizes the Growing Edges of our Consciousness).

There are lots of way to Expand our Consciousness.  For instance, we could take Inventory of what we Judge as Unworthy, Intuitively Choose one (by Pendulum or dart or coin-toss for instance, if one doesn’t jump out at us), and then PIAVA what it would take to Extend our Unconditional Love toward what we’ve been Judging.  PIAVA is important here, because the Edges of our Consciousness are well Defended by the Ego, and normal thought processes will steer us away from Breakthroughs that will actually Expand our Consciousness.

If Epiphany isn’t forthcoming on its own, it would be an excellent time to PIAVA Insights into what Blocks our Manifestation.

Orcus, whose Station is Exact 8 December (8pm PST), extends this Full Moon.

The other seven Mjölnirs or potential Epiphanies…

  • Blocks to WhatWeWant to Manifest that seem to be “Fated” or caused by circumstances beyond our Control, or which make us Believe that it’s not Possible to Manifest WhatWeWant (Moon Squaring Lachesis-Neptune); Watch for Actions that are completely out of Character, and which may not seem related to What We Want to Manifest (Mars-Haumea, or Birth of New Actions), and Indulge them. 

Let’s pick an example at random – suppose we Want Community, and we get a sudden urge to start a Garden (which we’ve never done), and then when we go shopping for a shovel we happen to meet folks who make Community around Gardening.  It will be important for the next several weeks to Trust unfamiliar urges – the Weirder the better.

  • Issues of Trust, Confidence, or Self-Love that interfere with WhatWeWant out of Life (Eurydike Squaring Sappho-Chariklo); Watch for apparently-unrelated Fear that arises, seemingly out of nowhere (Sedna). 

The more out-of-the-blue the Fear, the more likely it is to apply.  When Fear Overwhelms us, we’re usually Motivated to get Grounded again as soon as we can, by Tapping for instance.  That allows us to distinguish Present-Moment Danger from Regressions, and to Choose appropriate Actions, if any.  But in this case, seemingly-randomly-sourced Fear is our Intuitive Vehicle, and we want to ride it rather than Control it. 

We “ride” Fear by first locating it in our Body.  If it’s Diffuse, just pick a place where it appears to be more Intense than elsewhere.  Put All of your Attention directly into the center of that place, and hold it there.  When your Attention Wanders, no Judgment, just bring it back.  When the Intensity or location of the Fear Changes, you’ve succeeded.  You can keep following it if you want, or if it’s dissipated, you can just Change the Subject. 

This sort of Focused Attention is like a Poor-Sweetheart; other than relaxation of the Emotional Charge, you won’t notice immediate “results,” ie, your Fairy Godmother may not appear in the flesh.  However, you will have Changed, and when you Change, the Universe Changes.  Not just because the atom of the Universe that is you has Changed, but because the Universe that you see is a Mirror for Who You Are.  For instance, you may have started this process Believing that you would never be able to do public speaking because you are too shy.  But then, a week afterward, you find yourself speaking in public and enjoying it.  You may not even remember that you used to eschew it.

And by the way, this Focused-Attention process works very well for any sort of Discomfort in your Body.  Try it while you’re waiting for a dental appointment for your next infected root canal, for instance, or while waiting in the emergency department to get your next broken bone set. 

Get the idea?

  • The Desire to Act Differently, to Do New Things, or just to Be Someone Else, abrogated by a Little – or Loud – Voice telling you “You cannot do that, it breaks all the rules you learned in school” (Juno Square Mars-Haumea); Watch for what you’re Inspired to Create, and put your Attention into Creating that (Moon), rather than Focusing on the stalemate between your Wants and your Stops.

After a while you can pause and just Sit Still for a while, and look to see if your Little Voice is still as Insistent.  You may even Discover that what you’ve Created has satisfied your Desire and for the Moment completely bypassed your Stops.

  • Great Difficulty Setting Boundaries that Allow you to Be your True Self All of the Time, abetted by our Programming that we have to be “Nice” or the Sky will fall, and our Programming that it’s not Safe to be Completely Vulnerable (Juno Square Uranus-Pallas-Moira); Watch for subtle reminders of Promises or Vows that you have made in the current Lifetime or others (Orcus, which is Stationary).

This is a Biggie that we’ve been struggling with since 2012 or before, as we’ve Striven toward Yintegrity – toward Doing what we Feel Like Doing, Moment to Moment, instead of Doing what we said we would do or Doing what’s “right” according to someone else’s Rules.  Yintegrity is an important part of the Unconditional Trust in our Intuition that we need in order to step into 5D.

  • Places in your Life where you Habitually “Live a Lie,” where you are Compelled to Act in ways that you’ve been forced to Learn, rather than ways that are Natural to Who You Really Are (Sun Square Orcus, which is Stationary); Watch for any Discomfort around Boundaries (Uranus-Pallas-Moira).  You’ve always felt this Discomfort, you’ve just never really Noticed it before.

One of the simplest examples might be what you Habitually say when someone asks you “How are you?”  You might still say the same thing, but then you might catch yourself wishing you’d been more explicit or more Honest or more Vulnerable.  If that happens, don’t Hesitate to say “Wait a minute, Let me turn off the autopilot!  I’m really…” – and then go ahead and Be more explicit or Honest or Vulnerable.

There are two Stellia (groups of three or more planets) involved that make the rest of this really complicated…

  • You know Exactly what you Need to Do, but you Hesitate because your Programming doesn’t Believe you’ll be Safe if you Do it (Mnemosyne-Aletheia Square to Jupiter-Vesta-Hopi-Karma, with Mnemosyne Stationary); Imagine yourself Doing what you Need to Do, and Feel your Fear about Survival, then when you’re in the thick of it, Poor-Sweetheart yourself (Chiron).

This one’s tricky because you have so many Masters in the Unconscious.  There is the Master that Demands that you Grow, the Master that defines the Edges of Safety for you, the Master that Condemns your Lack of Unconditional Love, and the Master that reminds you of all the places where you Believe yourself to have Failed, and reminds you of all the “Lessons you’ve Learned” from those Failures. 

Of course that’s all Krap, there are no Failures, only Experiences, and those aren’t “Lessons,” they’re Unconscious Limitations.  And how can you Condemn a Lack of Unconditional Love – you can only Unconditionally Love any Lack.  The Edges of Safety are only what keeps the Ego from Growing, and no one Grows from Demands, only from Surrender.  All of which arguments are Meaningless because they’re just words. 

You have to go in there and Merge with each Master, Feel their Power, then move your Identity to Yourself as their Slave and Feel your own Powerlessness under their Control.  Then Poor-Sweetheart yourself.  Then wait a day, and do the same with the next Master.  You might well find more Masters than the four I’ve mentioned.

Now the Biggie…

  • By Galactic Order, your Planet is Raising Her Vibration.  It’s not Forced, it’s an Order that She Rejoices under, because She knows it’s the Culmination of the current stage of Her Evolution.  As atoms of Her Essence, like it or not our own Vibration is Rising as well, requiring a lot of Adjustments.  Our task is to Avoid being Victim to these Adjustments (Chiron Square to Ixion-Saturn-Mercury-Pholus-Quaoar-Galactic Center); For this one we tune our Mindfulness to Honestly Being Fully Present with the Memories and Emotions that arise (Mnemosyne, which is Stationary, and Aletheia). 

The Eighth Harmonic itself is all about Adjustments and Rebalancing, and these Mjölnirs are well tempered with Grace from their fusion with the Third Harmonic. 

Mnemosyne’s Exact Station 6 December (3pm PST) represents an Extension of this Full Moon, and these Memories, and being Fully Present (Aletheia) with the Emotions they Evoke, are Key to Acknowledging our Rising Vibration.  What Memories?  Subtle, aren’t they.  If they weren’t on the Edge of Awareness we’d have Faced them long ago.

Know anyone who is dying, or has recently died?  What Emotions does that Evoke, and more important, what Emotions does it not Evoke because you’re Programmed to Suppress them?  These “Held,” or Suppressed Emotions, are the currency of Enlightenment.  The more successfully we’ve Suppressed them, and the longer we’ve Suppressed them, the less Awareness we have of them.  If they’re still invisible to you, PIAVA that they contact you, Lovingly and Gently.

Once they Arise, or if they’re already Present and clinging to us like Slugslime, our task is to Embrace them Lovingly.  We can use Focused Attention on them to our advantage.  Remember that Love is Soft and Warm, while Fear is Cold and Hard.  Find them in your Body and Soften them, Warm them.  You can’t wash or rub off Slugslime, but there’s a trick – Grass will take it off.  Which is the clue – bare feet or a butt (sure, bare is better, but optional) on the Earth, especially with your back to the trunk of a Tree, will Drain slimy Emotions (and their dis-ease counterparts) rapidly.  Lying on your back on the Earth, facing the Sky works well too.

Let’s disassemble that Square…

  • Dwarf planet and Centaur Chiron tempts us to Respond as Victim, and the Antidote is Poor-Sweethearting ourself.  If you’re new to the Feminine Perspective, we talk about Poor-Sweethearting at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/05/11/poor-sweethearting/.  You can also look it up in the Categories list.  The “Centaurs” orbit between Jupiter and Neptune, with orbits of about fifty years.
  • Dwarf planet and Plutoid Ixion symbolizes our Forbidden Genius.  There is a part of us that is so Magnetic and so Bright that our Programmers felt the need to make us Ashamed of it, so it wouldn’t blind them.  We’ve been working to Recover this part of ourself for a while now.  If you haven’t unchained yours and invited them up out of the Dungeon yet, there’s still time.  Focus on What You’d Never Do In Public even in a million-dollar bet.  That’s what needs your Unconditional Love.  This part of every one of us is mandatory for our 5D Community.  The “Plutoids” orbit between Neptune and Sedna, with orbits in several to many hundreds of years.
  • Saturn symbolizes The Most Important Thing.  When Saturn is Lit Up we’re being Asked to Let Go of all of our fallbacks, and put All of our Attention on Priority Number One.  If you aren’t sure what that is (it should be Intuitively Obvious), PIAVA Guidance.  Hint: it’s about all of the things in this list.  If you don’t know Lady PIAVA, you can find out about her at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/.
  • Mercury stands for Awareness.  Here’s one artificial aid…

  • Dwarf planet and Centaur Pholus means Responsibility.  That means Being Responsive to, it doesn’t mean Being Blamed for.  Blame is about assigning Guilt about the Past.  Responsibility means taking charge of improving Future Outcomes.  Eliminating all Blame from our intellectual and Emotional Reality is another mandatory prerequisite for Enlightenment and 5D.

  • Dwarf planet and Plutoid Quaoar (“Q” for short on the chart) represents our Survival Instincts.  We Regress or Ignore them at our peril – as many in the US are doing.  No Blame; they’ll get theirs.  He who farts in church sits in their own pew, as the old saying goes.  Just move to the other side of the church.
  • “GC” in the chart stands for “Galactic Center.”  That’s Sagittarius A, the Black Whole around which our Galaxy revolves.  Galactic Headquarters.  We’ve talked at length about how Fate and Free Will are a Duality, an Either/Or, which betrays their status as an intellectualization rather than a Reality.  So it’s not like it is in the Space-War movies.  The Human intellect is Dual, Reality is Unitary and Multifarious.  We Create our own Future by becoming Conscious of our Choices, by Letting Go of the Archetypes that bind us to Habitual knee-jerk Behavior and betray our Presence in each Moment (Again, see Arrival, above).

If you’re thinking “My God that’s a Lot!!!” you’re right on track.  This is the Plot, and as Overwhelming as it is, it’s easy to lose.  See how long you can Avoid Victimhood.

Beyond Bounds and Boundaries II

November 12, 2017

Ever the Master of Timing, Dan Scranton’s Arcturian friends…

http://danielscranton.com/working-with-the-1111-energies-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

We have been delighted to witness the way in which you are assimilating the energies that have been coming to you in the past few days.  You are acclimating to energy at a much faster rate than you ever have before because you are participating more in the process.  You are anticipating these downloads.  You are readying yourselves physically, emotionally, energetically, and psychologically, and you are receiving more of what is being sent because of your openness, your trust, and your receptivity to the process.

“This evolution of yours is a process, and it is one that goes much more smoothly when you are a conscious participant in it.  The more you ready yourselves for the new energies, the higher frequency transmissions, the better those transmissions are received by you.  We see you lighting up as you receive.  We see you loosening your grip on what you have believed reality to be, and we see you willing to go with the flow, to let the process take the time that it takes.

“There are more and more of you who are aware of the importance of grounding yourselves, remaining hydrated, and utilizing all of the tools that you have at your disposal to make this shift in consciousness more pleasant and easier on you.  We want to help this process along by letting you know when the transmissions are coming and what you can do to prepare for them.

“And you are receiving information from the sources that you trust and utilizing that information to make yourselves available to these energies.  There is one more thing that we want to point out to you, however.  Once you have received a transmission of energy, and you have assimilated that energy, you do have the ability to move it through you, towards a creation.

“You are creative beings who have at your disposal more energy than you ever have before, and this world is ready for what you have to offer.  This world is ready for the new, the different, and the innovative.  What you can do with the energy that you receive is entirely up to you.  It is you operating as a creator being, utilizing your free will, and collaborating with the universe.  And we are very pleased to see all of that occurring.”

Time to Shift 2

October 15, 2017

So let’s focus on what in these charts tells us where we’ve got ourselves in an Unconscious 3D leghold trap.  The Eurydike-Venus Initiation (Trusting our Guidance) is symmetric (the Grand Sextile), suggesting that our Guidance is indeed to be Trusted.  Pulling it from the 5D end of the Funnel will always work better. 

The Key to the Dragon’s Lair in this chart is Poor-Sweethearting ourself whenever we Feel anything we don’t Enjoy (the Chiron Kite), or whenever we check in with ourSelf and can’t find what we Are Feeling.  Not Feeling means we’ve Repressed it, and we need to Recover it.  “You Poor Sweetheart, you don’t know what you’re Feeling right now, do you.”  If you get an immediate Response, Follow it.  If not, Change the Subject.

The Eurydike-Mars Intiation is less organized.  That tells us that while our Guidance can be Trusted, our Actions not as much.  The Fire and Earth Grand Trines suggest we can freely Manifest into Hardcopy whatever we have Passion about, but we need to watch mind and Emotion closely for Resistance. 

The Nemesis T-Square says we need to be quick to Embrace our Ego Deaths as the Stairway to Heaven.  Any Victims you want to Indulge are antithetical to your Soul and to your Rebirth – smother them with so much Empathy and Love that they Surrender. 

It’s also important to be Conscious of Fear in any flavor, and Tap it Out (Veritas Square Sedna).  Whenever anything doesn’t fall into place Easily, look for Unconscious Fears.  Ask yourself, “Why would I Resist that?” and Change the Subject if you don’t get an immediate Answer.  Always look to see if there’s an Answer you’ve already Rejected.

Mars-Eurydike themselves are tied up in a Grand Cross, and it’s about Recovering your Forbidden or Forgotten Genius.  Be on the lookout for Yes-Buts, or just Buts.  You do not Consciously Know what you’re seeking here, it’s outside of your Current Awareness.  So it’s very important to be Open, particularly to be Open to what you’re accustomed to thinking of as Impossible, which is to say, what you’re accustomed to not thinking of.  Actively seek out the Impossible in your Imagination, using Fear and Joy as your Guides.  When you find Joy, spend time getting to know it.  When you find Fear or Doubt, Tap it Out, then look to see what was behind it.  It’s a Big Universe.  Everything is Possible.

One of the more salient features of Effortlessness, aka 5D, is Timing.  In 3D there are Separate Places and Separate Times.  In 5D there is only the Right Place at the Right Time.  So let’s look at the Septiles (Seventh Harmonic) in these charts, since the Seventh Harmonic is about Timing our Actions.

The Most Important Thing is to Let Go of what Worked for you in the Past, and Open to the Infinite instead, especially the Infinitely Easier (in both of these charts Jupiter makes a Waning Septile to Saturn).  You are no longer Building things.  You are Conducting an Orchestra of Energies, and they are Building things for you.  It’s critically Important to Avoid thinking about Mechanisms, about How.  Instead put your Time and Energy into What, into Imagining Outcomes.  How chains you to the treadmill.

Knowingly or not, everyone is always Expanding their Consciousness – that’s why we’re here.  Over the last several years you’ve built certain Habits that govern the way you filter out Bullshit.  Let those go (both Initiations are also Waning Biseptile to Juno).  Consider everything tentatively Possible from some point of view.  You don’t need to, or even want to, understand that point of view.  Acceptance is what you’re after, not understanding.  Just consider it Quaint.

It’s time to Let Go of Judgments, especially Judgments of other People or Cultures (in the Venus-Eurydike chart, Sun-Mercury Triseptiles Pallas).  Even Preferences can be considered suspect.  They will cloud your Guidance. 

Your Culture is Changing rapidly – don’t let it leave you behind (along with Ceres, Sun-Mercury is also in the base of a Neptune Quintile Yod).

Let your Actions be Devoted to moving your center of gravity from Ego to Soul (in the Mars-Eurydike chart, Venus Triseptiles Uranus).  If you don’t know what that means, PIAVA it

Practice Yintegrity – letting your Guidance tell you what to do when, rather than your mind.  Each time you set a Boundary with someone (letting yourself be Vulnerable, or Protecting yourself, for instance), take a moment after the fact to review what your Motivation was for setting the Boundary where you did.  This could lead you to Limiting Beliefs that you didn’t know you had (Pallas makes both a Waning Biseptile to the North Node, and a Triseptile to Vesta).

Intuitive Confidence V – Lesson Plan

September 18, 2017

The Asbolus Station chart, and the New Moon after it, features no less than three Quintile Yods.  A Yod is a wedge-shaped triangle.  A Quintile is two planets one fifth of the way ’round the Zodiac from one another.  It means Learning and Teaching, the Fifth Harmonic.  We usually draw them in orange (though they look more red here).  A Quintile Yod is made up of two Biquintiles (two fifths of the way ’round) and one Quintile, making a narrow triangle, like these…

The three Quintile Yods include…

  • A Nemesis QYod on a base of Stationary Asbolus and Venus – we will be Learning about Ego Death with our Intuition and our Values as our Teachers
  • An Ixion-Saturn-Lilith QYod on a base of Pallas and Ceres-Aletheia-Mnemosyne – We’re finally Learning that it’s Most Important to Support the Sovereignty of our Hidden Genius, as we Remember the Truth of the Abuse that forced Her underground, and Learn to draw Boundaries to Protect Her
  • A North Node QYod on a base of Chiron and Pluto – This one is Big too; we’re Learning to Support our Lifetime Mission (whether we recognize it Consciously or not), by Accepting the necessary Self-Transformations and Empathizing with the Pain of the resulting Ego Deaths

One Quintile Yod is fairly unusual; three of them at once is a Graduate School.

In the previous post, https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/09/18/intuitive-confidence-iv-asbolus/, we drew in, in light lines, the ongoing Earth Grand Trine that includes the 17 September Chariklo Station, partly to remind us that it’s still about, and partly to point out that… 

  • Orcus Initiated Mercury in 10 Virgo on 17 September (6pm PDT).
  • Orcus Initiated Moon in 10 Virgo on 18 September (noon PDT).
  • Orcus Initiates Mars in 10 Virgo on 19 September (10:30 am PDT).

10 Virgo is “Two heads looking out and beyond the shadows,” which Rudhyar interprets as Transcending Duality.  Wouldn’t that be nice.  Orcus is about Oath-Making and Oath-Breaking.  The Etruscan God Orcus was in charge of Punishing Oath-Breakers.  Oaths serve only to enforce Slavery, whether to outside Authority or to our own mind.  A distant Ancestor once took an Oath to Breathe Oxygen, so we can’t dismiss Oaths completely – we’re Creatures of Habit, and we’d all be stumbling around like one-year-olds if we weren’t, if we made it to year one. 

However, there’s a one-to-one relationship between Oaths we’ve made and Archetypes that Enslave us.  We live 99% from the Unconscious, and many of the Archetypal Programs running in the Unconscious are Limiting Beliefs.  Since those Limiting Beliefs travel with us from Lifetime to Lifetime, we’ve Vowed to Escape from some of them during the current Lifetime.  The Etruscans were right – Breaking an Oath requires Punishment, and we feel it as Guilt. 

Yes, we Disappoint and Abandon many people, in this Lifetime and others, when we disavow an Oath, and that doesn’t feel good.  This Discomfort is part of our Ego Death.  We use the Ego to Merge with an Oath to create a Limiting Belief – it Defines us – otherwise we wouldn’t reliably Obey it.  So Transcending it requires an Ego Death.  

Intuitive Confidence III – Massive Blessing II

September 15, 2017

Here’s a Massive Self-Confidence Blessing for us, from Dr. Kim…

http://drkimderamo.com/three-reasons-people-dont-heal/

“What is it that blocks so many from healing?  There are three key factors keeping you stuck.

  • OUR WAY OF BEING.  Our state of being creates a chemical imprint.  When we live in fear and try to manage our illness from a state of fight or flight we tax our bodies with stress hormones.  When we try to “fix” the body with our mind, rather than surrendering to the heart, we prevent healing.  We must allow something new to come in, and ‘let go’ of trying to fix the problem so that it can resolve.
  • VICTIM MENTALITY.  Living in a state of mind where you feel as if life is happening to you.  Feeling like nothing you do is working or helping keeps you stuck on this pattern of seeing yourself and the world.  Until we resolve what is actually happening within us, we won’t be able to let go and allow something new to come in.
  • LIVING IN A SPACE OF ‘NOT GOOD ENOUGH.’  When we feel less about ourselves and focus our attention on others needs more than our own, we can’t heal.  When you feel that you are not enough or don’t matter, your body can’t get what it needs, so you block healing.”

Of course, Changing any of the three is the Lottery Prize, but we can start by Asking ourselves if any of the three is true for us; if so, what do we Feel about it; then Tapping it Out and Thetaing it.  And following that by PIAVAing an Improved Outcome. 

See…

if you aren’t familiar with any of those three.

Or, you could nose around on Dr. Kim’s website for a hundred other suggestions, including her small but Powerful book…

http://drkimderamo.com/videos/

And today’s message from Dan’s Arcturian chorus, as is often the case, isn’t far from the current theme either…

http://danielscranton.com/what-you-want-to-create-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“It is the perfect time for all of you to consider what experiences you want to have.  It is a time where the energies have never been more supportive of moving you to the reality you want to experience.  The reason why you need to keep checking in with yourselves, as far as what it is that you want to create, is because you are changing with the energies.  Your desires are shifting, and the thought forms that you have access to are also of a higher frequency.

“So now what you want for yourself, you also want for all others.  You can see yourself as a part of a bigger picture, a collective, a human race.  And your willingness to listen to those desires that you have within you, and feel for how they resonate with your ascension, is crucial in lining you up with the experiences that you want to have.  You are meant to let this universe inspire you to want to create.

“You are not just here to evolve, transcend the physical, and escape to another dimension.  You are also here as the pioneers, creating something brand new, something never before experienced.  And in order to do that, you must acknowledge your desires, and you must be willing to receive that which you are creating.  It is important for you to feel that you deserve that which you are creating so that you can experience it.

“It is through experience that you grow, and it is through experience that you become more specified in what you are creating next.  You are absolutely worthy of everything that you want to create for yourselves and for the rest of humanity, and this journey that you are on is supposed to be one of joy and exploration.  There is plenty of energy to go around for all to live in abundance and for all to experience everything that this universe has to offer and more.”

When we Live in Harmony with our True Self, as we’ve been Learning to do since “the End of Time as We Know It” in 2012 (ie, Uranus Square Pluto, enhanced by Eris’s 2016 Initiation of Uranus, which inspired the new 90-year Uranus-Eris Cycle with “Openness to Spiritual Energy), Self-Confidence is never an issue; it doesn’t even come up.  If Narcissism is your True Self, then you have some good models in the public eye to emulate.  It behooves us to Imagine what it is about Weird and Contrary Manifestations that might be their Positive Psychic Purpose in our Planet’s Evolution and our own.

Of course the Exceptions, and they are very prominent Exceptions, include the places where we Surrender our Self-Sovereignty to Cultural or Familial Authority or the “successful” Bullying by someone else’s Intolerance, and where our Forbidden Genius has been “beaten” out of us in one way or another.  What a “Coincidence” that the Stellium between Ixion (our Forbidden Genius), Lilith (Self-Sovereignty) and Saturn (The Most Important Thing) isn’t that far from making another Twentieth-Harmonic Angle (see previous post) to the Chariklo Station.

Arguably the greatest Blessing here is the Opportunity to get Curious and Conscious about these Exceptions so we Accept the Opportunity to convert them from “Fate” to Choice.

Intuitive Confidence II – Massive Blessing!

September 15, 2017

The 17 September (3am PDT) Chariklo (Self-Confidence) Station contains a Blessing so strong that I don’t recall ever seeing one like it.  The Station makes only two within-three-Degrees-of-Sensitivity (“Orb” in astrospeak) Angles – both Trines (Great Grace), giving the chart only one Configuration, a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Grace).  The Grand Trine is so Blessed that, until we Realize that other people have their own Gifts and it’s not about the Ego, we usually Live it as Arrogance. 

Our respective Gifts complement one another, but when one person thinks their Gifts are the result of their own Superiority, the Collective soufflé is ruined.  In a Culture that Worships the Ego as the Supreme Beingness, this is a fatal self-inflicted wound, as the state of the World demonstrates.

So keep an eye on the Narcissists if you know any (!), they’re likely to be Over-the-Top.  I think one already is, thanks to Chuck and Nancy – the Chariklo Self-Confidence Energy will be strong for at least a week prior to the Station, longer if someone is more Sensitive to it, such as someone who is already a Narcissupremacist.  Look out for sudden reversions to Mean afterward, when the Energy starts to fade.

The Grand Trine is the big blue triangle.  The orange wedge (Quintile Yod), though simultaneous, is otherwise unrelated to the Chariklo Station, unless you want to tune in to the Twentieth Harmonic.  The Moon-North Node Focus of the Quintile Yod is eighteen Degrees (one twentieth of the Zodiacal loop) from the Mercury-Mars-Orcus corner of the Grand Trine.  Which makes it even more interesting.  The Twentieth Harmonic is The Aeon, or a Time period of long but unspecified extent and…

“The principle of good judgment that is utilized in both personal and professional situations…  All perceptions come from our ability to look at the whole and… to consider longevity, history, and broad perspective…  Our creative power to give birth to new forms…  Wisdom comes from experience and is not randomly spoken…  The Last Judgment is faced in all the daily judgments we make of ourselves and others…  Reminds us to look at the history we have shared and to forgive ourselves and others for the judgments we are making about what we are doing or not doing in our lives…  Inspired vision.”  –Angeles Arrien, The Tarot Handbook, pp.95-96).

No wonder our favorite Narcissist seems to be suddenly making good decisions.  Bodes ill for the hangover though, unfortunately.

So lets look at the components of the Grand Trine and the Q-Yod…

A Chariklo-Station by itself implies a Crisis of Self-Confidence, which we may receive as Enhanced Confidence, or an Exacerbation of existing Self-Doubt.  In the latter case you can consider it a “Healing Crisis” (when an affliction gets temporarily worse just before its Demise), particularly if you are Alert enough to notice what Triggers your Self-Doubt, and Recognize that it’s a form of Anxiety. 

Anxiety is an Emotion that makes us probably even more vulnerable to “Transitiveness” than other Emotions do.  A Verb that takes an Object is called a “Transitive” Verb.  In the sentence “Donald fired Jim,” Donald is the Subject and Jim is the Object of the Verb “fired.”  In the sentence “I’m Anxious about such-and-such,” the prepositional phrase “about such-and-such” is the Object of the Verb Anxious.  Well, there’s news.  Emotions are Intransitive.  They don’t take Objects.

I’m Angry at Fred” is a bullshit sentence.  What’s really going on is that we’re Angry, and Fred happens to be in the line of fire.  We have no idea what the original source of our Emotions is.  In fact, there’s an excellent chance that they aren’t even “our” Emotions at all.  Like thoughts, Emotions float around like clouds or Viruses, and easily latched onto.  Fred might remind us of the guy who Abandoned us when we had the Plague in the Middle Ages, and Abandonment may be what Triggers our Anger.  Fred is an innocent by-stander.

It behooves us much to view all Emotions this way.  “I’m Anxious about the Future, now that I’ve been told that the World is supposed to end on 23 September.”  More Bullshit.  Our Anxiety is either pre-existing and Karmic, or Impersonal and just passing by, probably both.  In this Culture, you won’t get much support for Receiving Emotions this way, but if you want to reach for Neutrality, you’d probably be hard-pressed to find a faster route.

The other corners of the Chariklo-Station Grand Trine are Moira, which symbolizes the Duality Fate and Choice (Your Choice), and a Stellium formed by Mercury (Mind), Mars (Action), and Orcus (Oath-Making and -Breaking).  Wow, this is almost Biblical or Trumpian in terms of being “The Greatest Opportunity Ever” or the like.  Here’s what this Grand Trine can show us…

  • The Realization that Patterns which we’ve been regarding as “Just the Way It Is” (Moira as Fate), are actually the result of our Limiting Beliefs (Mercury-Mars-Orcus as Awareness/Mercury that we’ve been Victimized/Mars by Oaths we made Long Ago and Far Away/Orcus that we really don’t need any more).  This Realization has the potential to open us up to having Confidence (Chariklo) that we can do things that we’ve always envied other people for doing so apparently effortlessly.
  • Notice that these could be “Unconscious Denial,” where we had no idea that Reality could be otherwise than Limited as we had supposed!
  • These Realizations are the sort that can Expand our Consciousness and our Horizons greatly.
  • Since it’s a Grand Trine, we could Experience Breakthroughs in Efforting, as what was previously very difficult suddenly becomes very Easy.  That is, we could suddenly discover we have Talents we didn’t know we had, which can boost our Self-Confidence.  If this happens, Look to see how Changes in your own Beliefs are involved.  If you can make this a Breakthrough in Consciousness as well as a Breakthrough in Efforting, you’ll be miles ahead.
  • Your Self-Confidence could be Challenged, as the Unconscious tries to show you how you are Sabotaging yourself.  If Self-Doubt arises, or you know someone who is “shaking your Confidence daily,” or meet someone who’d like to try doing that, this represents a fabulous Opportunity to Open up to the Realization that you have Choice in the matter.
  • In a situation where a Narcissist is handed a Blessing and their Ego eats it without Sharing, the part about using the Blessing to gain Consciousness becomes even more Important than it is Unlikely.  Even if the Narcissist simply lacks the necessary Skills to gain Consciousness, we can always Open to the Possibility of Evolution.  It’s been shown many times that even in biology rapid and even instantaneous Evolution occurs.
  • This very Station may be what the Evolution of the US is all about.  The US is also an intransigent Narcissist, and perhaps what we’ll see this weekend is the Realization, by the US as a whole, that the Antichrist is just a Mirror for their own Limitations.  Maybe St. Louis will bring us a Kent State Moment.
  • Jose could also create some additional Consciousness in Climate Deniers if it comes ashore, maybe in the Capitol area, where Irma missed.

The Moon-North Node Quintile Yod (which of course is about Learning and Teaching) says that we’re being Educated about our Instincts for Self-Improvement, not in anyone else’s terms, but in terms of our own Mission in the Lifetime.  Grokking our Life Mission is always difficult because it’s Multifarious and Unitary, which means that every time we try to approach it with the mind, we freeze it into Duality and hence we turn Retrograde.  We interpret the Moon as our Instincts, so we may be Semiconsciously Making new Oaths which Create Patterns that facilitate increased Conscious or Unconscious Attention to our Mission.  Yes, that could Create more Limiting Beliefs, but they may be an improvement over our previous Beliefs.

The base of the Moon-North Node Quintile Yod is the Waxing Quintile from Chiron back to Pluto.  This Chiron-Pluto Cycle, recall, is about the “Flag turning into an Eagle turning into a Rooster Saluting the Dawn,” which suggests that the Learning may be larger than Personal.  The Dance between Chiron (Letting Go of Pain through Empathy) and Pluto (Formation of a New Trance) is about “going meta” in our Personal and Planetary Evolution.  To “go meta” means to step up to a larger Perspective, as Angie Arrien’s description of the Twentieth Harmonic at the beginning of this post suggested.

We can Apply what we Learned to the content of our Anxieties on a case-by-case basis; for instance I might be able to facilitate Healing of a sore throat by Tapping or PIAVAing or Thetaing it.  But we make our Evolution exponential when we “go meta” and realize that we can Theta our Anxiety itself instead of, or in addition to, Thetaing an erroneously-Transitive Object of our Anxiety.  What a Leap this Massive Blessing would Bless us with if we really Realize that our thoughts and our Emotions are not our own, but just visiting Entities like Eeyore and Tigger and Piglet and Pooh and Gopher (apologies to British readers) and Wiley Coyote and Taz…

“This is the time of the great remembering.  When we remember our roots and that we are part of nature, life becomes more peaceful and compassionate.  Through many of us ‘mass remembering’ this, we will create a peaceful, positive, and abundant world and a permanent sustainable culture, a Permaculture, across the world.” –Robin Clafyield, “Pioneers of Permaculture,” in Permaculture North America #4, Spring 2017.

Raising Vibrations

June 18, 2017

From John Perkins’s The World Is as You Dream It (pp.96-7)…

” ‘To camay,’ Manco [a Quechua Shaman] explained, ‘is to breathe unity into.  No corresponding word exists in Spanish.  Even the idea is difficult to express, for it seems that you northerners don’t believe such things.  In our lives, it is a very important concept, perhaps the most important.  We have several related words: churay, ruray, and supay.  These have to do with creating.  But camay is the most powerful.

“He knelt before a gnarled old agave, a special plant to Andean people that is related to the aloe.  ‘This plant appeared to be dead a year ago.  I camayed into it every day, and now look.’  He patted it tenderly.  ‘Old, but very much alive.’  He stood.  ‘We are all one.’  He turned slowly in a circle, his hands at his side, palms out.  ‘When one of our parts is out of balance, others can help to bring them back.  That is when we camay.’ … ‘The blowing we do during a healing is a form of camaying.  We breathe unity into the sick or injured person to restore balance.’ “

The astrological correlate of Restoring Balance is in particular the Trioctile – three eighths of the way ’round the Zodiac – and in general the Octile, one eighth of the way.  The Eighth Harmonic is itself about Rebalancing, and we favor three of them because the Third Harmonic is all about Love with Wisdom.  We’re especially fond of the Mjölnir or “Hammer of Thor” Configuration, which is a third planet Trioctile to each end of a Square.

Conventional or Ego- and Fate-Reinforcing astrology sees the Square as a Malefic, and the Hammer of Thor as Destructive.  From the Perspective of Spiritual or Ego- and Karma-Transforming astrology, the Square represents Mastery through Challenge, and the Mjölnir, like its predecessor the Vedic Vajra, symbolizes Lightning, Illumination, or Epiphany.  Our recent Stations include a couple of Mjölnirs… 

The long lavender lines are Trioctiles, the short ones Octiles.  The red Squares are, of course, Bioctiles – two eighths equals one fourth.  The Square is ultimately also about Illumination.  Jupiter is the Focus of a Mjölnir across the Sedna-South Node Square, meaning that the Jupiter Station at the Full Moon, and its ongoing Mjölnir, has Illuminated and will continue to Illuminate the Places where we Fear our own Karma – that’s basically the Regressed Hellhole I found myself in through much of the last fortnight. 

Of course we Fear our Karma – that’s the nature of Held Emotions, Emotions that we can’t Tolerate, that we’d rather Die than Re-Experience.  Which is precisely the point – we need an Ego Death here to Expand the way Jupiter would like us to.  The Jupiter T-Square crosses the Opposition between Vertias (Truth) and Juno-Chariklo (Bringing Self-Confidence under Conscious Control), but it’s also a Diamond Star, as Jupiter is at the Focus of a Finger of God from the Venus-Neptune (Our Spiritual Values) Sextile.  Which is to say that Jupiter would like us to – and is offering to help us to – Transform our Relationship to Fear and Held Emotions by Rebalancing the Relationships between our Spiritual Values, Consciousness, and Self-Confidence.

Which, incidentally, has Sedna Squaring the Nodes.  This Square will be Exact – a Can-Opener if there ever was one – on 3 July.  So we’re very lucky to have had the Jupiter Station Illuminating this Process before we get submerged into the depths of it, so we know to bring an extra oxygen tank.  The slower a planet, the deeper it’s Influence in the Unconscious.  Sedna takes fifty times as long as Pluto to make it’s way ’round the Zodiac once.  Most of the other new dwarf planets are called Plutoids, because they’re basically similar to Pluto.  Sedna is so far out that they made a whole new class for it – Sednoids.  So far it’s the only one with a name.

So, what is it that will make you soil your knickers before you can make it to the loo?  Aliens landing in your back yard?  Fire taking down your apartment block?  Nucular War?  A Lunatic in charge?  A Fairy landing on your thumb?  A Plant talking to you?  Abandonment?  Suffocation?  Your neighbors at the door with pitchforks and torches?  Not enough Money?  A Terroirist Attack?  May be a good time to do some pre-planning.

The other Mjölnir is Focused on Varuna (the Life Force), from the Square between recently-Stationary Neptune and Lilith, suggesting that Balancing your Spiritual Beliefs and your Self-Sovereignty will enhance your Life Force; or, as Michael Roads frequently says, “it’s not enough to Believe it, you have to Live it.”  The Neptune T-Square is also a Diamond Star, and one corner of a Water Grand Trine besides. 

Our third recent Station was Makemake; note that it’s Octile to both ends of the Vesta-Sappho Square – We’ll Manifest more easily when we Align our Self-Love with our Unconscious Beliefs.

Greetings.  We are the Arcturian Council.  We are pleased to connect with all of you.

“Your frequency matters.  Your frequency, the rate at which you vibrate the energy of your consciousness, becomes your life experience.  It is as simple as that.  However, you have a lot to think about and a lot to do, and you certainly have a lot to process emotionally.  All of that leaves you with very little of your precious time to tend to your frequency.

“You would be very well served by giving it your attention at least periodically throughout your day.  It would be advantageous to you to have reminders for yourselves, to check in and feel how high or low that frequency is.

“You can tell by what you are feeling, but you can also tell by what you are thinking, and even what you are doing.  Certainly, your physical bodies are wonderful feedback mechanisms.  If there is something going on with you physically, then there is certainly something going on with you frequency-wise.  There is always some underlying vibrational cause to what you are experiencing in the physical.

“So if you pay attention to what you are doing, what you are thinking, what you are saying, and how you are feeling physically and emotionally, you will become aware of your vibration.  Once you become aware of it, the next part is to tune into it, to zero in on it.

“You do that by going within.  Pay attention to where you feel particular vibrations.  Pay attention because it serves you to, and because by giving it your attention, you automatically shift it.  You automatically shift the frequency of your vibration by intending to do so, and by focusing on it you awaken yourselves.

“You are in a constant state of awakening now.  The easiest way for you to experience an awakening is to feel into your energetic bodies.  Your energetic bodies don’t just surround you.  They can also be accessed within your physical frame, your physical structure.  And giving them your attention, giving your physical and energetic and your emotional bodies your attention, is all it takes to raise your frequency.

“We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

Purgative New Moon II

May 24, 2017

Here’s another relevant Stone, Tremolite, a Crystalline form of Jade, a Calcium Magnesium Chain Silicate…

It can move you “into consciousness of the next dimension… and stimulate creativity and imagination after periods of grief and loss,” says Marquist (p.153).  If you blow it up and stare at it (http://www.jbuss.com/jbl4h/tremolite1.htm), it looks like an Old Soul and a Record Keeper. 

Makemake was a god-figure among the Rapa Nui of Easter Island, credited with saving them from extinction by teaching them how to Survive without Trees.  The connection between the name and Making is a “Coincidence,” but the Makemake discovery chart exudes Manifestation.  Makemake joins Nemesis and the New Moon to make a Grand Trine, the symbol of “Dumb-Luck” Grace created when three planets are equally spaced around the Zodiac.

The idea of “Creating Our Own Reality” is heresy to our Victim, “New Age Guilt” to our Blame, and anathema to religions and philosophies that refuse to give Power to the Individual.  And it’s a little off base.  “Taking Responsibility for What We’re Manifesting” or “Being Response-Able to Our Circumstances” is a more accurate description of the process of Owning One’s Own Power-With.  We tend to think first of Power-Over because Power-Over is the law of the land in the Colonial Patriarchy.

Nemesis, recall, is one end of the Yin Gate or Paradox School in the New Moon chart (see previous post).  This is a huge Blessing, as most of us don’t greatly relish most Ego Deaths, and the Grand Trine (the big blue triangle in the graphic below) will make them much Easier.  And if you know the geometry, you’ll know that, since it Opposes Nemesis, Vesta is at the top of a Kite formation (the smaller blue triangle sitting on the left side of the Grand Trine, giving both together the shape of a kite)…

This Channels the Energy – Grace – of the Grand Trine into our Unconscious Beliefs, which should make it much Easier to melt any Self-Sabotaging Beliefs that are Limiting us.

Notice also that Makemake makes a T-Square (red triangle) across the Opposition from Veritas (Truth) to Hylonome (Letting Go of Control by Archetypes), Challenging us to do exactly that – Let Go of Limits to our Conscious Growth, Limits to our Ability to Manifest exactly What We Want.

So, how exactly do we do that?  Dan Scranton has been telling us to just “Raise our Vibration.”  Okay, so how do we do that?  Well, I can think of a number of ways to attempt it…

  • Closing your eyelids while rolling your eyes up, for instance
  • Grounding yourself (Imagining Energy moving down your spine, and from there into the center of the Earth if you still feel jangly or Ungrounded), then Focusing your Attention into the center of your Chest
  • Sit in a quiet place with your back to a Tree, or even just lay on the Ground in a Grove for a half hour or so
  • Examine your thoughts for Judgments, and deliberately Choose Cuiosity instead
  • Forgiveness
  • Lovingly Embrace yourself exactly where you are, letting it be a lunch stop on your route, rather than an undesirable destination
  • Focus on what portions of your Wants you’ve already Manifested, rather than Focusing on What you haven’t Manifested yet; you may Want A+B+C (eg maybe Security+Freedom+Abundance), and have actually already Created A, B, C, and A+C, you just haven’t Created A+B, B+C, and A+B+C yet – now you know where your homework lies
  • Gratitude
  • Let your thoughts or Identity float into the space above your Head, above the roof even, and from there spread out and continue Expanding
  • PIAVA What You Want (especially after you’ve Expanded your thoughts or Identity)
  • Intention
  • Theta Healing (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/theta/), where you can see or Feel the likely results, adjust, and iterate
  • Stop with the “I can’t”
  • Shift from “Yes But…” to “Yes And…”
  • Read a chapter in Dr. Kim’s Mind-Body Handbook
  • Let yourself Daydream

There Must Be Fifty Ways to Leave A Low Vibration, as Paul Simon might say.  Have a look at this…

Maybe today’s Energy is pretty Blessed all on its own, and all we need to do is Surrender into it.  Take a nap and let it infuse us.  I Wonder if thee’s any connection between this Ninth Wave and the Ninth Harmonic.  Any Ninth Harmonic Angles in the New Moon chart?  Well, yes, turns out there are many…

And we’ve only drawn the ones that congregate into a big Configuration; we’d have to call it a Novile Bowl.  There are also many others, just not as coherently related to one another, although there is an additional Novile Yod pointing at Ceres (Sustainability) from the Novile between Sappho (Self-Love) and Pholus-Quaoar (Response-Ability re Survival).  The Ninth Harmonic is about Introversion, Self-Reflection.  The planets in the big Bowl are…

  • The New Moon (5 Gemini is about A movement toward Revolution)
  • Uranus-Eris (Outing Denial of One’s True Self)
  • Neptune-Lachesis (Limiting Cultural Approval)
  • Nemesis (Ego Death)
  • Saturn-Ixion (Urgency in Recovery of Our Hidden Genius)
  • Klotho (Emergence of a New Timeline)

That seems like fertile ground for a Long Meditation!
