Ancestors Full Moon 2 (Boundaries VI)

February 18, 2019

The second Self-Resolving Challenge (Diamond Star) in the 19 February Full Moon is Focused on the Life Force (Varuna)…

The Stress that needs to be Resolved (the Opposition in the base of the T-Square or red triangle) is between Whether our Actions Serve our Soul’s Purpose (Mars-Uranus) in the Lifetime, and Whether our Boundaries are True to our Soul’s Purpose (Aletheia-Pallas, both of which are Stationary or Strong).  The Suggestion is that any Limitations in our Vitality will be clues about how our Actions and Boundaries aren’t Serving our Soul’s Purpose.

The Grace which Supports our Efforts and makes the Challenge Self-Resolving, is split between…

The big uptick in participation by the Ancestors (Sun-Klotho-OR10), which we discussed in the previous post, and…

Trusting our Unique and possibly or formerly Forbidden Genius to help us be Fully Responsive to our Survival Instincts (Eurydike-Ixion-Pholus-Quaoar), which we also talked about earlier.

The next Big Configuration in the Full Moon chart is Profound Blessings (a Grand Trine and Almost-Grand-Sextile)…

The Big Dumb-Luck Blessing (Grand Trine) is on the Cusp between Fire and Earth, mirroring the imminent (6 March) movement of Soul (Uranus) into Matter (Taurus).  The Players are an Ego Challenge as our Inner Female steps forward – for any gender (the Moon on the cusp of Virgo), the Genius-Trust-Survival Dance we’ve spoken of (Eurydike-Ixion-Pholus-Quaoar on the Sagittarius-Capricorn Cusp), and the Question about whether our Actions Serve our Soul’s Purpose (Mars in Taurus Conjunct Uranus in Aries).

The two elements in the Almost-Grand-Sextile are the Ancestors (Sun-Klotho-OR10 in early Pisces), and the Changes in our Boundaries (Pallas-Aletheia in late Libra), both of which we’ve discussed.  A Grand Sextile means that all of the elements in it are Operating Cooperatively with one another – sort of the way everything will be in 5D.  So if we can Activate the Almost-Grand-Sextile, we’ll find our Boundaries, the Ancestors, our Survival, our Genius, our Instincts (Moon), and our Actions all in Alignment.

So how do we Activate an Almost-Grand-Trine?  We look at the Energy embedded in the sixth corner, the one that would Complete the Grand Sextile, called the Vacancy, and we Project that Energy Consciously.  Intention is probably Sufficient.  The Vacancy is 2 Cancer, “A man on a magic carpet hovers over a large area of land: The ability to expand one’s consciousness by stabilizing one’s point of view at a higher level.”  Wow, just what the original Self-Resolving Challenge, that we described in the previous post, Creates!  When astrology Repeat itself, we know we’re on the right track.  Remarkable.

The picture above also shows one other feature of the Full Moon – the Finger of God (grey-green wedge) pointing at Chiron (Despair and Miracles), so recently having moved into Aries (1pm PST 18 February).  Despair is one of the defining characteristics of Pisces, as Pisces’s job description is to Embrace All Excess Emotional Baggage, Karmic and otherwise.  So the last eight years, while Chiron has been in Pisces, have been Intense Emotionally for all of us.

By now we’ve hopefully all Learned how to Poor-Sweetheart ourself into Miracles.  By saying to ourself “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Bummed, aren’t you,” and then Changing the Subject (Putting our Attention elsewhere), we can instantly Shift our Identity from Bummed to Compassion.  We may have to rinse and repeat, or use Tapping or other PIAVAs, if we Obsess and have difficulty Changing the Subject.  (Leave a comment if these concepts are new to you.)

With Chiron in Aries, we of course could Encounter Spiritual Crises instead of Emotional Crises, and considering the State of the Planet, that may well happen.  And actually, we’re already hearing about just that on the Fake News every evening, aren’t we.  But a Spiritual Crisis is basically an Ego Death, and we’re well practiced at Embracing those, Right?  And now that we’re Adept at Embracing Emotional Crises after studying them for eight years, we won’t have to deal with those complications, Eh?

The Roots of the Chiron Finger of God are our Instincts about Ego Death (the Moon on the Cusp of Virgo), and our True Boundaries (Stationary Pallas and Aletheia).

The next Global Configuration in the Full Moon chart is a hidden Chin-Strap Square Fez, so called because the sides of the Moroccan-hat-shaped trapezium are Squares (red lines), and the blue triangle below the bottom looks like a chin strap…

It also forms a Parasol over the Juno Diamond Star, adding extra Grace to our Consciousness Expansion.  The Challenges (Squares) are real…

  • Genius-Trust-Survival (Ixion-Eurydike-Pholus-Quaoar) Challenging our Ability to Transform Despair into Miracles (Chiron).  Basically, this is about using the Tools we’ve Learned to Avoid being a Victim, for which there are many Opportunities.  We could be Victimized by Threats to our Survival.  All our Life we’ve been Victimized by the Programmers who drove our Forbidden Genius underground.  If we misinterpret Respond-Ability as Blame, we’re Victim there as well.  And Lack of Trust is a perennial source of Victimhood.

But – we know how to convert Despair to Miracles, Right?  Only our Ego can be Victim, not our Soul, and we’re in the process of moving our Ego closer and closer to Soul, Right?  So every trace of Victimhood is a Sign that we need to Surrender to an Ego Death and move into Respond-Ability.  We can do that as simply as saying to ourself, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’ve Feeling Vicimized here, aren’t you” and then Changing the Subject.

  • Our False Boundaries (Stationary Pallas and Aletheia) Challenging our Life Force (Varuna).  This can easily feel like Victimhood again – if our Boundaries aren’t working, we can feel like someone else is Manipulating or Hurting us.  If we don’t Recognize the connection, we can Experience that as a Diminution of our Vitality.  Again, we can Watch for Diminished Vitality, and when we Notice it, Look For places where our Boundaries are too weak or too strong.

But the key to any Fez is the Tricolors (red-green-blue triangles) created by the grey-green diagonals.  A Tricolor is a combination of Challenge (red), Curiosity (grey-green), and Grace (blue lines).  The prescription is to unlock the Grace by remaining in Curiosity about the Challenge, rather than trying to Figure It Out.  We can’t Figure It Out without Limiting ourself to our current concept-set, so by Avoiding that and staying with Curiosity instead, we invite Growth in Consciousness instead.

This is not the kind of Curiosity that inspires Study and Research – that’s the Figure-It-Out kind.  This is more akin to Awe and Wonder, Accepting What Is at Face Value, and Marveling at it.  Like we did very often as a kid, before we were perverted by the Over-Intellectualization of Colonial Society.

By Knowing Cause we can sometimes Manipulate circumstances to our Advantage.  To the Colonial or Capitalist mind, Win-Lose is Success.  We could use Cause for Win-Win, but first we have to Evert our notion of Success.

By Believing we Know Cause, whether we do or not, and by Enjoying the fruits of Manipulating circumstances to our Advantage, we Seduce ourselves into Believing we’re Superior to those we’re Colonizing.  That somehow makes Colonialism okay – we Rationalize that we’re somehow Helping them while we’re robbing them blind.

The problem is that we never do actually Know Cause.  We may Know some Superficial Connections, but like Vale’s recent murderous dam failures in Brazil, Colonialism always ends up Defiling the Planet and the People for the Profit of the few, and the few usually live far away from the Carnage.

So to achieve non-Figuring-It-Out Curiosity-Awe-Wonder requires a Big Ego Death relative to our Lifelong training as children of Colonialists.  Like Racism and Sexism, it takes a big jolt just to Realize that we are Racist and Sexist and Colonialist, and that we don’t know how not to be.

Moving our Perspective from Appreciation – or literally Worship – of Figuring It Out (and of Wealth and Superiority) to Appreciation of Awe and Wonder (and Sustainability and Equality), takes a Searching and Fearless Inventory of everything in our Lives, but if we want to Trust our Unique Genius and Respond Fully to our Survival Instincts, it has to be done.

We can interpret the diagonals of the Fez and their Tricolors as PIAVAs.  Using just the Major Tricolors (those with the long blue lines or Trines), we have…

  • “I Wonder if I can Poor-Sweetheart myself into Allowing Miracles to Adjust my Boundaries so that my Vitality is Improved” (Varuna Square Pallas-Aletheia Quincunx Chiron Trine Varuna – the “Quincunx” or five Signs is the grey-green Curiosity line)

PIAVA is short for Prayer-Intention-Asking-Visualizing-Affirming.  There are other, “silent” letters as well, such as Wondering, Commanding, and Expanding.  These are all Triggers for our Intuition that can Magnetize what we Want to Receive and draw it toward us – the Feminine process of Creating.  It’s an alternative to the Dynamic or Masculine process of Plan-Execute and its corollaries.  Whenever you’re dealing with What You Don’t Know, aka the Unconscious, the Magnetic process is the only one that works – and it works Wonders.

In the above we’ve used Wondering to Trigger our Intuition, and to make it work – which is to say, to Avoid trying to Figure It Out – we need to immediately Change the Subject and put our Attention elsewhere.  See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/ for more details, some of which are important.  In the below we’ll use Prayer.

  • “Ganeshi, Please Remove All Obstacles to my Avoiding Victimhood about my Genius and my Survival, while Supporting my Vitality.”

Then we Change the Subject.  By Surrendering Control over the Relationships between (1) Victimhood (Chiron) and (2) Genius-Survival (Ixion-Quaoar) and (3) Vitality (Varuna), and Delegating them to the Remover of Obstacles Ganesh, we’ve Invited our Intuition to Resolve any Conflicts that may arise between them.

That leaves only what’s usually ignored in astrology – the four “Unxes” in the Full Moon chart.  Unx means one twelfth, and it names the Angle between two planets that are one Sign apart…

These are the short green lines.  This is the Twelfth Harmonic, which is about Pattern-Breaking.  So any Self-Sabotaging Habits you have between the Energies on each end of an Unx, this is a great time to replace these Habits with Self-Supporting Patterns.  The Unxes here are…

  • Do you Sabotage your Vitality, by eating Sugar or other empty calories like White Bread, for instance, or failing to eat enough Green Vegetables or Drink enough Water?  You have Instincts that tell you not to do this – do you Ignore them or not even Recognize them?  Now would be a good time to PIAVA that you Attune yourself to them.  (Moon Unx Varuna)
  • Many of us have Habitual Actions that don’t Serve our Soul.  It’s an excellent time to PIAVA that we become Conscious of them so we can Change them.  (Juno Unx Mars-Uranus)
  • And most of us probably feel like Victims of these non-Soul-Serving Actions, as if someone else made us do them (and indeed, we may have been Programmed to do them by someone else).  “You Poor Sweetheart, you Feel Victimized by those Actions, don’t you.”  (Chiron Unx Mars-Uranus)
  • I’m Worried that these Ancestors are coming to Kick Ass because we’re Screwing Up!  “You Poor Sweetheart, you Feel Scared by this Possibility, don’t you.”  (Chiron Unx Sun-Klotho-OR10)

Kegels 7

February 8, 2019

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

PIAVA What You Want instead.

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

Self-Judgment and Self-Love IV

January 18, 2019

The sleeper in the 20 January Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse (9:16 pm PST) is the virtually simultaneous Station of Sappho (9:12 pm PST).  Sappho of course symbolizes Self-Love.  While this is fabulous, what may be most in-your-face are any Impediments you have to Self-Love.  So if you aren’t Ecstatic, now and for the next several days, Rejoice!  You’re getting in touch with exactly what you need to Let Go Of in order to take your next big step into Liberation.  Often the most difficult part of Growth is ferreting out what holds you back, so this is a profound Gift of the Eclipse.

We usually begin our interpretation of any chart with its most Unusual or Significant Configuration, and this won’t be an exception, because both the Sappho Station and the Eclipse are part of a Grand Octile – eight planets more or less equally spaced around the Zodiac.  I don’t recall ever seeing a Grand Octile before in my fifty years of doing astrology, so this is indeed Unusual…

…No, there was one at the Ides of February 2014.  It may not have been as tidy, but it was certainly Prophetic (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/configurations/grand-octile/).

The Eighth Harmonic is about Alignment, Balance, and Justice, giving us the Opportunity to Realign anything in our Lives that’s out of Balance – particularly about the Relationships between the eight principles in the Grand Octile…

  • Any gaps in our Self-Love will be Lit Up so we can Fill them – Sappho.
  • Manifesting our Mission in Real Time and Enjoying the resulting Boost to our Vitality – Eclipsed Moon-Varuna-North Node.
  • Letting Go of Ancient Oaths that have since cemented into Karmic Limitations – Orcus.
  • Reconsideration of all of our Boundaries with everyone and everything – Pallas-Haumea.
  • Expanding and Realigning our Values to match whom we’ve become – Venus-Jupiter.
  • Becoming Aware that we’re Done with what we thought was our unavoidable Karma but turned out to be just Bad Habits that can be Replaced – Sun-South Node-Karma-Atropos-Mercury.
  • Our Relationship to Spirit – Neptune.
  • Our Relationship to our own Soul – Uranus.

A Grand Octile features eight Squares (Challenges), but each is Gifted by an accompanying Mjölnir.  A Mjölnir is formed when a third planet occupies the Far Midpoint of the two ends of a Square.  Ego astrologers refer to it as a Hammer of Thor, implying a threat to the Ego.  We chose the Norwegian equivalent because it implies Lightning – an Illuminating Irresistible Force rather than a Crushing Sledge.  The Vedic Vajra serves the same function.

Our favorite Octile is the Trioctile, three eighths of the way ’round the Zodiac, because it combines the Third Harmonic (Love with Wisdom) and the Eighth (Realignment, Balance) – what could possibly go wrong with that?  Well, okay, we could get our Ego toasted by having to Confront our Resistance to Realigning into Love and Wisdom – Bummer!  With the South Node involved, we could even have to deal with our Held Emotions, the ones “we’d rather Die” than Feel.  Remember the proper syntax is “we’d (Old Ego) rather Die” not “we’d rather Die.”

A Mjölnir is a Square and two Trioctiles; combining Realignment into Love and Wisdom with Lightning, we get Epiphany!  Our eight Epiphanies are…

  • Using Self-Love to Redraw the Boundaries that Keep our Held Emotions and Karma Unconscious (Pallas-Haumea Square Sun-South Node-Karma-Atropos-Mercury Trioctile Stationary Sappho).
  • Expansion into Union with Spirit by Embracing our Deepest Desires (Venus-Jupiter Square Neptune Trioctile Moon-North Node-Varuna).
  • Renouncing our Historical Oaths to Enjoy the Demise of our Karma (Sun-South Node-Karma-Atropos-Mercury Square Uranus Trioctile Orcus).
  • Relaxing the Boundaries that falsely Distinguish between our Self-Love and Spiritual Ecstasy (Neptune Square Stationary Sappho Trioctile Pallas-Haumea).
  • Growing into the Recognition that our Lifetime Mission is to Identify with our Soul (Uranus Square Moon-North Node-Varuna Trioctile Venus-Jupiter).
  • Destroying our Karma by Choosing Self-Love over Discipline (Stationary Sappho Square Orcus Trioctile Sun-South Node-Karma-Atropos-Mercury).
  • Reaching toward Enlightenment by Healing our Impediments to Vitality (Moon-North Node-Varuna Square Pallas-Haumea Trioctile Neptune).
  • Allowing our Soul to Grow by Renouncing and Renegotiating our Commitments (Orcus Square Venus-Jupiter Trioctile Uranus).

Not to mention our eight Octiles…

  • Gracing our Mission with Self-Respect – Stationary Sappho Octile Moon-North Node-Varuna.
  • Choosing Freedom over Commitment – Moon-North Node-Varuna Octile Orcus.
  • Renouncing our Limitations – Orcus Octile Pallas-Haumea.
  • Newfound Perspective and Vision – Pallas-Haumea Octile Venus-Jupiter.
  • Embracing What We Want – Venus-Jupiter Octile Sun-South Node-Karma-Atropos-Mercury.
  • Recognizing the Spirit can Liberate us from what we have Believed to be Irredeemable – Sun-South Node-Karma-Atropos-Mercury Octile Neptune.
  • Merging our Individual Soul with the Goddess – Neptune Octile Uranus.
  • Unconditionally Loving the Gateway to our own Soul – Uranus Octile Stationary Sappho.

Lotsa work to do!  Here’s an assignment from Dan Scranton’s Arcturian friends…

https://danielscranton.com/you-receive-because-you-feel-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“You Receive Because You Feel

“What makes you better candidates for receiving the energies that we and the other beings send is that you decided that before you incarnated in this lifetime that you would awaken.  In order to awaken, you would also need to be sensitive, empathic, compassionate beings.

“In order to receive higher frequency energies, you must first be attuned to what feels good and what does not feel good.  This is what makes you all excellent creators.  It makes you all harder to lie to, and it gives you so many different ways to help others.  If you don’t know how something feels when someone else experiences it, then it’s harder for you to have compassion for that person and to hold space for them.

“Now, you also have the opposite end of the spectrum there on planet Earth.  You have people who do not feel much of anything at all, and we have a very hard time reaching them in any way that we have attempted thus far.  Therefore, we need your help in reaching the humans that we can’t, and one thing that you have in common with them that we do not is that you are physical human beings.

“And there will always be a way to reach one of your human cohorts there who needs reaching.  We will continue to deliver the energies to you, and we will continue to implore you to spread those energies around so that others may experience what it feels like to engage with higher frequency energies.”

If it’s your Mission of course.  You wouldn’t want to Commit to anything that doesn’t Serve Your Soul, would you?

Self-Judgment and Self-Love

January 13, 2019

Well, my apologies.  I finally see why many folks are checking the blog’s home page – when I was cataloging the “first half of 2019” (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/12/24/2019-first-half/) I just plain missed a couple of Stations.  I thought we were getting a short break between the 12 January Lachesis Station and the 20 January Full Moon Eclipse, but no such luck!

We have to add…

Self-Judgment and Self-Love, 11-20 January

  • Nemesis (Guilt, Ego Death) Station, 6 Gemini, 17 January (2:30 pm PST)
  • Sappho (Self-Love) Station, 12 Gemini, 20 January (9:30 pm PST)

I’ll amend that earlier post.

In other words, asteroid Nemesis – Ego Death – is Stationary as we speak.  There’s at least one positive about it – it could mean that US federal employees will start getting paid again by 18-20 January, but we’ll get to that.  The other big positive may not Feel so good, but it’s a big Opportunity.  The Nemesis Station Squares (Challenges) our old “friends” OR10 and Nessus, respectively Intrusive Memories and Abuse and Privilege.  Two things to Remember…

  1. A Square seems to be about Repeated and Possibly Infinite Torture, while in fact a Square is about Complete Mastery of a Subject.  We – our Current-Moment Ego – didn’t sign up for Repeated and Possibly Infinite Torture, but actually it’s the quickest and most effective path to Complete Mastery.  Because Master can imply Slave, we’ve abandoned Mastery as a description of the Impact of a Square, however, and substituted AdeptnessA Square is the quickest and most effective path to Becoming Completely Adept at something.
  2. Karma is Dead.  When we Re-Experience a Trauma, our natural Reaction is to Push it Away.  But unfortunately that doesn’t work.  The only way to prevent it from returning Again (and Again and Again) is to Move Into it.  Recovery from Trauma was a major theme in the 1980s when Pluto was in Scorpio (fittingly), and the Anthem we used then was The Way Out Is Through.

Now that isn’t always True.  Once Pluto entered Sagittarius, The Way Out Was Letting Go.  Now Pluto is in Capricorn, so now The Way Out Is to Just Fix It.  So how to do that?  Well, one way is to toggle between Moving Into It and Letting It Go

We apologize for using a song sung by a Barbie-Doll mimic, because that’s just another thing that we need to Let Go of.  No wonder Lasseter’s in trouble with #MeToo…

https://msmonotone.wordpress.com/2017/09/08/hour-glass-figure/

We’ve all Suffered Abuse in some form; if you aren’t Aware of how you’ve been Abused, Ask for Awareness.  This is an Opportunity to increase your Healthy Control over your own Life.

The Key is that Karma is just Habit, and Habit is Built and Replaced by Repetition.  Every time you Re-Experience Trauma as its Victim you add cement.  But Every time you Let It Go as an Adept, you chip away the mortar.  That’s As An Adept.  That means you first have to dip your toe into it.  You can no longer Run Away from it.  It’s subtle and tricky, to Touch your old Trauma without getting sucked in and drowning in it.  If you have a friend, or a mnemonic, to remind you that it’s no longer Present Moment, that’ll help.

In the 1980s we used “What Color is the Wallpaper?” as our mnemonic, because the walls of the room we’re in now are probably a different color than the walls of the room where our Trauma occurred.  But that may suck you in too deep, if you even remember.  You need to keep at least one hand on the railing so you can pull yourself back out into Now.  Maybe a big

2019

sign?  Or a placard or poster that says something like

Karma is Dead!
(As long as I continue to Let My Bummers Go and Let My Hurting Self into my Own Heart Unconditionally!)”

Let your Inner Artist work on that one.

Poor-Sweethearting yourself can be Powerful too (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/).

Don’t neglect Tapping.  Gary Craig had great success leading Vietnam PTSD Victims through Re-Experiencing the Edges of their Trauma and Tapping with them.  This is heavy…

In order to Move Through and Let Go of Deep Trauma you may need an EFT professional who’s familiar with PTSD.  A workable approach might be to locate one near you (or within telephone distance), connect with them, tell them you want to try EFT on your Trauma first by yourself, and ask them if they’re willing to take your call if you get in over your head.  They may have useful information for you.  The basic EFT technique I use is this one…

Finally, if it’s Painful between now and 17 January, Recognize that the 20 January Sappho Station that follows, which is all about Self-Love, occurs within a few minutes of the Total Lunar Eclipse, which will make Self-Love very Powerful and more Long-Lasting.

The major Configuration of the Nemesis Station chart…

…is a Square Fez – the Moroccan hat with red sides and blue top and bottom.  The red sides (Squares) are…

  • Nemesis Square OR10-Nessus (Abuse/Privilege).  This is a Challenge – consider it an Invitation – to Let Go of our Beliefs that Abuse and Privilege follow us around like a Lost Puppy.

In the Unconscious, Opposites are Equal.  So one way to Approach our Beliefs that we attract or deserve or allowed Abuse (if we don’t bring these Beliefs into Consciousness they’ll Control our Life), is to Examine the ways we are Privileged.  Privilege is actually useful – as long as it doesn’t leave someone else without Privilege.  If you have a friend who likes to buy you lunch, Enjoy it!  And pay it forward, pass it around.  Save half to give to the homeless person on the corner.

But we want to Strive for Balance.  We want to Grant as much Privilege as we Receive.  And we want to Give as little Abuse as possible, and Receive even less.  Having Received Abuse it’s inevitable that we will Give it, Unconsciously if not Consciously.  Stay Safe, but try to steer it toward Abusers…

https://msmonotone.wordpress.com/2017/10/06/pigs-in-politics/

The Keys to any Fez are the green Diagonals (called “Quincunxes” because they connect planets that are five [Quin] Signs [Unx = 1/12] apart).  They’re part of two interlocking Major Tricolors or red-green-blue triangles, indicating Challenge/red, Question/green, Blessing/blue; the green Question Liberates the blue Blessing to resolve the red Challenge.  By Question we mean Curiosity, of the kind that eschews “Figuring It Out.”

Aka PIAVA – Praying, Intending, Asking, Visualizing or Pre-Feeling, Affirming, Commanding, Expanding, or any other Magnetic approach to Creating; see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/.  We don’t want Answers, we want to Express our Curiosity about How the Result we Want will Manifest – then we want to Let It Be so the Universe can Surprise us.  Resist the Desire to know ahead of time; if you don’t get Surprised, you aren’t Growing.  If we already knew the Answer, we’d have already Manifested it.

The two Major Tricolors are…

  • Nemesis Square OR10/Nessus (the Challenge to gently assist the Molt of our Abused Ego),
    • OR10/Nessus Quincunx Makemake (“I Wonder what that’ll look like when it Manifests!“),
    • Makemake Trine Nemesis (Ego Death is the Open Door to Creating).
  • Makemake Square Hopi/Quaoar (the Challenge to Recognize and Relax our Judgments in order to Allow What We Want to Manifest),
    • Hopi/Quaoar Quincunx to Nemesis (“Ganeshi, Please Remove All Obstacles to Letting Go of my Attachments to my Judgments“),
    • Nemesis Trine Makemake (I’ll be better able to Manifest What I Want once I Let Go of my Inner Blocks to Receiving it).

Wow VIII

December 9, 2018

Just to slow us down when we do lapse into Trying to Understand, the next-most prominent elements of the Chiron Station chart are two Yin Gates.  A Yin Gate happens when three planets are one Sign apart, each Opposite another planet, forming a rectangle bisected in the long dimension.

Put Mercury (☿) at the bottom of the chart to see one of the Yin Gates, characterized graphically by two green Xs in a tall blue rectangle, with a red asterisk between them.  Put Ixion and Pholus (Pholus.svg) at the bottom of the chart to see the second Yin Gate.

A Yin Gate symbolizes a Mystery School, the purpose of which is to move the Initiate past the Duality of the mind and into Recognizing the Unitary Multidimensionality of the Real World.  Which means, from the perspective of Dualism, Paradox.  The Real World is nonlinear, the primary manifestation of which is that Contradiction is a property of the Observing mind, not a property of the Observed World.

The primary Paradox is Illuminated by the central Opposition – here Chaos (Unlimited Potential) Opposite Ixion-Pholus (Responding to our Forbidden Genius), and Mercury (Awareness) Opposite Sedna-Lachesis (Reframing Fear).  The four corners of the blue rectangle, and the diagonal Oppositions, flesh out the nature of the paradox.

So for instance we might initially believe that the likely result of Responding to our Forbidden Genius would be Punishment, as that has likely been our historical Experience.  In general, an astrological Opposition (Second Harmonic) doesn’t imply a Logical Contradiction, since the Second Harmonic is about Ritual.  The Opposition implies the Duality that we must Do the Ritual correctly or it won’t work, because the Power of Ritual lies in Repetition.

So the proper Cultural and Religious Ritual is to quite purposely NOT Respond to the Desires of our Forbidden Genius.  Responding would Open a social can of worms, of Unlimited Potential for Disorder.  Dwarf planet Chaos by itself doesn’t symbolize Disorder, it implies Unrealized Potential.  The proper Esoteric Psychological Ritual is that we MUST Respond to the Desires of our Forbidden Genius, or suffer forever remaining a Partial Person.  The proper Esoteric Religious Ritual is to Constrain Response to the Desires of our Forbidden Genius within the bounds of Rituals that are kept Private from the general public.

The proper 5D Ritual is that Responding to the Desires of our Forbidden Genius (and tolerating the actual or perceived 3D social condemnation) is necessary for Yintegrity to function.  As Rudhyar said, “When you don’t follow your nature there is a hole in the universe where you were supposed to be.”

Recovering your Forbidden Genius is a prerequisite for moving to 5D – where you will have Unlimited Potential to Manifest your Deepest Desires.  If you feel like you Understand that, you’ll have to Let It Go, because Paradox isn’t something that we Understand, it’s something we have to Accept, and something that’s Initiated by Confusion and Curiosity.  There are still miles to go before we sleep.

Her Insight suggests that, if the results of voting in the US are delayed, the news will favor “that which nurtures and protects Life.”  Of course a Racist or Nationalist would claim they are doing just that, and in a narrow sense they are, but it would be rooted in Fear, and when we Manifest from Fear, Fear is what we Manifest.  Fear doesn’t “nurture and protect Life” except in a very superficial and temporary way.

We need to stay Mindful of a fundamental astrological “fact” – the 21st Century was born under a Pluto-Chiron Initiation at 12 Sagittarius, “A flag turning into an Eagle, the Eagle turning into a Chanticleer saluting the Dawn.” 

The flag represents folks who Identify with their Nationality, Ethnicity, or Race more than they Identify with their Individuality or their Huperity or their Soul or their Species or their Planet.  They’re being replaced in this Century by far-seeing Eagle, Who sees the World through a larger Perspective.  Eagle is subsequently replaced as the logo of the Century by the Dawn, Enlightenment. 

The 18th Century “Age of Enlightenment” is also, and more appropriately, called the Age of Reason, and most of the Death Drive on the Planet today results from too much Reason.  The 21st Century Enlightenment is not about Reason, but about Ascension, or Merging and Collaborating with the Natural Flow of Co-Creation and Empathy with All of Mother Gaia’s Children – Animal, Vegetable, and Mineral, whether bigger or smaller than a breadbox.  Saint Francis of Assisi rather than Saint Augustine of Hippo.

We also discovered something interesting when we noticed our indirect reference to The Tower in the previous post, and investigated the 16th Harmonic (a “Semi-Octile” or 22½ Degrees).  The Tower represents “the principle of Restoration, renovation, and de-structuring of old forms” (Angeles Arrien, The Tarot Handbook, p.82). 

The purple lines already drawn on the Cuspal chart in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/11/05/ends-and-means-ii/ Illuminate an Exact Septile Yod to the North Node from Mars and Saturn.  A Septile Yod occurs when two planets are both Triseptile (154½ Degrees) to a third planet, and Asks us to Pay Attention to Timing.  In 5D, when we’re In the Flow, Timing is Everything.  (We won’t notice it, because we’ll be in the Flow, but while we’re still in 3D it behooves us to Pay Attention to Timing, as practice for 5D.) And the Mars-Saturn Cycle says that The Most Important Thing is Action.

This Waxing Mars-Saturn Septile tells us that Action at this point in Linear Time will be very Powerful and Germinal.  The results may not be immediately obvious – as Energies usually do, they may wait for the Waxing Square before they reveal themselves fully.  This Mars-Saturn Cycle was Initiated last April at 9 Capricorn, “An Angel Carrying a Harp” – we’re beginning to see what Dan Scranton’s Channel meant when they said that Adeptness “comes when you are so certain that what you desire is on its way to you that you bask in the present moment and in whatever energy that you do have access to.”

So even if the results of the current election allows the Corporate-owned Media to continue to fuel itself on Fear, the cohort of Women entering Politics in the US here will bear Fruit at the Mars-Saturn Square – which happens just as they’re being sworn in, in January 2019.

The South Node in the New Moon chart is Exactly at the Midpoint between Saturn and Mars, 24½ Degrees from each.  24½ Degrees is actually closer to the 15th Harmonic than the 16th.  The 15th Harmonic (24 Degrees) or The Devil represents Levity toward that which ” ‘bedevils’ us” (Arrien, p.78).  As we pointed out earlier, we couldn’t find a more perfect Metaphor for the South Node.

So what about the New Moon itself?  Anything near the 16th Harmonic from it?  It turns out to be near the Midpoint between Venus and Mercury, which both happen to be Standing Still when the Mean Node retrogrades into Cancer at the Ides of November and also begins to help promote “that which nurtures and protects life.”  Mercury forms a Waxing Novile to Venus, which advises that Meditation and Prayer is a most Powerful Action this month.

The Mercury-Venus Cycle is about Becoming and Being Aware of our own Values.  The current one began in early March at 28 Pisces, “A fertile Garden under the Full Moon reveals a variety of full-grown Vegetables.”  That, and all of its Implications of Abundance and Well-Being, is our Image to PIAVA in our Meditations – the Arcturians remind us that “if we Want to Receive something that we’ve been Asking for,” we’ll probably have to access it Energetically before we can access it Physically.

The Venus-Mercury Initiation was also in the same Degree as Chiron, which puts us in a position where we can Choose between Despair and Miracles about our Connection to our Values – or about our Values themselves if they’re Obsolete.  Choose Miracles by Poor-Sweethearting yourself whenever you aren’t “so certain that what you desire is on its way to you that you bask in the present moment and in the energy that you do have access to.”

Since the position of the New Moon is refracted by its Conjunction with asteroid Eurydike (Trust), the Venus-Mercury Midpoint is less than 2 Degrees from the New Moon, making 17th-Harmonic Angles between the Moon and each planet. 

The 17th Harmonic is represented by The Star, which signifies Self-Sovereignty (Arrien p.85).  With Self-Sovereignty, we don’t really care what seeps out of the election; we just Manifest the Reality we Want to Live in, by Becoming and Being Authentic, and being Neutral to any Patriarchal or other Resistance we meet while we Persist in working around and beyond it.

Quantum Jump 24: The Real Thing V

August 5, 2018

We’ve already mapped “Grand” (complete or Powerful) Configurations in the Third (Grand Trine), Fourth (Grand Cross), and Sixth (Grand Sextile) Harmonics in the Uranus Station chart.  These Harmonics represent, in turn, Grace, Competence, and Partnership.  The First Harmonic by the way symbolizes Identity, and the Second Ritual.  Let’s look at Harmonics Five and Seven…

The Fifth-Harmonic Configuration (light purple lines) is one corner shy of a Grand Quintile and the Seventh-Harmonic Pattern (heavier purple lines) is missing two corners to complete a Grand Septile.  The Fifth Harmonic is about Learning and Teaching, and the Seventh about Timing. 

This is Foundational, so let’s review…

  • First Harmonic (0 Degrees of Separation) – Identity
  • Second Harmonic (180 Degrees) – Ritual
  • Third Harmonic (120 Degrees) – Grace
  • Fourth Harmonic (90 Degrees) – Competence
  • Fifth Harmonic (72 Degrees and multiples) – Learning
  • Sixth Harmonic (60 Degrees) – Partnership
  • Seventh Harmonic (51½ Degrees and multiples) – Timing

and we may as well continue…

  • Eighth Harmonic (45 and 135 Degrees) – Rebalancing
  • Ninth Harmonic (40 Degrees and multiples) – Introversion
  • Tenth Harmonic (36 Degrees) – Abundance
  • Eleventh Harmonic (32.7 Degrees and multiples) – Confidence
  • Twelfth Harmonic (30 Degrees) – Pattern-Breaking

The Almost-Grand-Quintile or Big Learning Opportunity includes…

  • Lachesis-Sedna, Consciously Modifying Fear-Based Timelines
  • Neptune, Recognizing Confusion as the first sign of Growth
  • Saturn, The Most Important Thing
  • Atropos-Haumea, Ending Resistance to Rebirth

You can probably combine those yourself, right?  Something on the order of Learning that The Most Important Thing is to Recognize Confusion as the first Sign of Ego Death so we can Stop Fearing and Resisting it, and Embrace our Rebirth instead, eh?  I don’t know about you, but I’ve been Programmed to Believe that Confusion, like Curiosity, Requires me to Figure Out What’s Going On, before it creates further Trouble.

This means Learning a whole new Way of Being, where I have to Celebrate Confusion as an Emotion in its own right, and Get Excited about the Unknown Changes that it portends.  Which means I need to Trust that I’m Safe in the Interim, and Trust that the Changes will be for the Better.

What about the Vacancy.  If there was a planet in the Fifth, missing, corner, this Learning could happen on its own, without my having to Midwife it.  If I can Create the Energy of the Vacancy, I won’t need the planet there.  The Vacancy is 10 Degrees of Leo, “Early morning dew sparkles as sunlight floods the field.”  In Nature at Sunrise on a cool Spring morning as the Warming Sun surrounds me with Diamonds – I been there, I can Embrace that Feeling.

So we could make this, Learning a whole new Way of Being, where I Celebrate Confusion as an Emotion in its own right, and Get Excited about the Unknown Changes that it portends by Knowing that the Rising Sun will Warm me and surround me with Diamonds.

In the All-But-2-Grand Septile, the Elements that are likely to Time themselves well here are…

  • The Uranus Station itself, Integrating Ego with Soul
  • Nessus, Abuse and Privilege
  • Klotho-Pluto, A New Beginning with less Resistance to the Inevitable
  • Sun-Mercury-Pallas, Setting Boundaries against Intellectual Interference with Growth
  • Moon-Chaos, Touching the Unlimited Potential that is Authentically Ours At This Time

I think a good way to proceed would be to look at the ten Combinations (Uranus and Nessus, Uranus and Klotho-Pluto, etc) and go from there. 

We’ll do that, and look at the many Eighth-Harmonic Configurations (Mjōlnirs) in the next few installments.

 

Empath and Empathy VI

July 4, 2018

We usually ignore Unxes, but a Powerful case can be made that they’re the most important Angles in the astrological lexicon.  Given the (Materially Appropriate) Tenacity of the Ego, Letting Go of Habit Patterns may be our greatest Challenge as Hupers.  One Perspective says that if we tried to Live without Habits it would be like being Stoned out of our gourd on LSD all the time.  I’ve met Folks who could probably pull that off, but damn few.  Another Perspective points out that if we Lived totally from our Intuition, Habits might be temporary conveniences.  I’ve probably met more people who are close to that, but also few.

When two planets Unx one another, Patterns can Fall Away on their own – at which point we may Panic and snatch them back from Oblivion rather than face the Void in their place.  Our Unx work lies in Allowing Habits to leave peacefully while we Express our Gratitude for their Efforts at making our Life Easier.  Even if they felt like a curse, their Intention was to make our Life flow more smoothly – it was our Conflicting Needs that made them feel like a curse, not the Habit itself.

It wouldn’t hurt to review Cycles here.  They begin at Initiation, when the Cycle’s Energy is Strong on the communal Airwaves.  Then the Cycle’s Energy tends to go Underground while Entities who have profited from the Old Cycle try their best to stretch their profits as far as they can in order to maximize the return on their investments.  Meanwhile the New Cycle’s Energy is gaining Strength.  The Waxing (Increasing) Square brings the Tension between Old and New to a peak, Challenging us to finally Let Go of the Old Energy and Embrace the New Energy.

Once it thus reaches the Cultural Mainstream, the New Energy grows, Receiving Grace at the Waxing Trine, Blooming at the Opposition, and Fruiting at the Phitile (223 Degrees), which is close to the Waning Trioctile.  If we’re Tuned In we’ll can or freeze our Bounty Gracefully at the Waning Trine.  The Waning Square Challenges us to wind down, Celebrate the Fruits of our Labors, batten the hatches, and prepare to Rest.  This Void time between the Waning Square and the Initiation is the most difficult for Hupers to tolerate if they’re stuck in the Dynamic Masculine Plan-Do modality.

This is PIAVA Time.  Unless our Intuition is very Strong, we have no way of knowing what the next Cycle will be.  Sure, we can look up the future Initiation’s Sabian Symbol, as we do, but we’re still left with a Gollum-like riddle to interpret it.  It’s certainly Time to Review the closing Cycle for what we Wanted, Received, Gifted, and Invested.  And definitely Time to Inventory our Wants and Needs for the Future.  The Energy of the New Cycle isn’t totally Determined yet, and our Focus on our own Intentions will join the Vibrations from all the other Entities to fill in the colours of the New Cycle.

Before every Initiation we have a Waning Unx (Relative Ease of Letting Go).  That follows a Waning Square (Challenge to Let Go) and a Waning Sextile (Blessings following from Letting Go).  We can profitably use this Pattern to Pay Attention to what in our Life seems to be faltering at the Waning Square, Test a partial or pilot Letting Go at the Waning Sextile to see if Blessings follow, and bring out our finest Tapping-PIAVAing Iterations at the Waning Unx, to make us the Emptiest possible vessel to Receive Abundance (Having Enough to Share) in the coming New Cycle.

If we look at the Karma-Saturn/et al Waning Unx in this Light, what would we find?  The Karma-Saturn Cycle is about how The Most Important Thing is our Collection of Habit Patterns.  How have they Served us over the last four or five years (the length of a Karma-Saturn Cycle)?  How have they been a Disservice for us?  How have they Limited us (S-t-r-e-t-c-h!)?  What would we Replace if we had our druthers?  How might we Intend that?

The Karma-Pholus Cycle is about how much our Collection of Habit Patterns reinforce Repetitive Reactions to what Triggers us, and how much they facilitate Appropriate Response to Actual Events.  Use similar questions about Service and Limits.  The Karma-Quaoar Cycle is about how much our Habit Patterns Support or Hinder our Survival.

Besides Karma-Saturn et al, the other Opportunities for Letting Go of Obsolete and Self-Sabotaging Patterns (Unxes) in today’s (10pm) Chiron-Station chart, include…

  • Chiron-Moon Waning Unx to Uranus-Juno.  The Biggie here is the Chiron-Uranus Cycle, which is Waning.  Over your Lifetime (this Cycle is about 130 years old), what do you Believe the Relationship between your Soul and your Suffering has been like?  Many Religions focus on this Relationship and make Suffering into a sort of merit badge.  Have you been there?  Do you Believe that sort of Connection between Soul and Suffering can Survive into 5D, or would you rather see Soul teaming up with Miracle (the other side of Chiron) instead?

Moon Cycles only last a month, and there are an overwhelming number of them, so we usually ignore them.  But if you’re focusing on a specific Issue (such as Health) studying the Moon Cycles of a relevant planet (such as Varuna) will probably pay dividends, because the Moon is so important to so much of Life that the Patriarchy has Repressed, causing it to protrude in odd ways from odd places.  Notice that the Moon has Cycles to your natal planets as well as to planets in the Sky Now.  You could use, for instance, http://www.true-node.com/eph1/ to study the latter, entering “Moon,Varuna” in the first box.

The four-year Waxing Juno-Chiron Cycle is worth some examination.  At the Waxing Unx we get another Opportunity to Let Go of Old-Cycle Habit Patterns that are taking too much work to keep them Fruitful in the New Cycle.  Our Efforts should flow into our Rewards without too much Difficulty, and if they don’t it may be a sign that an Obsolete Habit is getting in the way.  The Juno-Chiron Cycle is about how Aware we are of our Victim Postures.  Short of Miracles (which we never want to Discount), we have to be Aware of them before we can Improve them.

  • Chiron Waxing Unx to OR10.  Since OR10 represents Intrusive Memories, we can think of it as a Treasure Chest holding the blueprints for our Karmic Traumas.  Again, Awareness is Golden, as it is frequently a prerequisite for Healing.  We’re likely to have to Retrain ourselves to Respond to Intrusive Memories with Open Curiosity rather than with knee-jerk Repression.  The Hidden parts of your Self that are willing to share those Memories are very tender, and will rapidly Retreat more if they aren’t greeted Joyfully.  We can actually Deepen our Karma by telling our Informants to Talk to the Hand.
  • Ceres Waxing Unx to Makemake-Eurydike.  The Ceres-Makemake Cycle is Waxing, while the Eurydike-Ceres Cycle is Waning.  Do we still Doubt our Abilities to Manifest or Heal?  Are we Tapping Out our Doubt?  Is it working?  You’ve done it before, you can do it again, but you need to deal with that nagging Doubt voice, or it will Sabotage your Efforts.  Some people say that it’s all Perfect As It Is, and that’s a very useful Perspective, because it facilitates our search for the Conflicting Goal that Stops us from Creating What We Want.
  • Ceres Waning Unx to Varuna.  This five-year Cycle is about Sustaining our Union with the Life Force.  If you have any Health issues Lit Up, what do they have to Teach you?  Ask them.  Are you eating too much Sugar, or eating non-Organic Sugars or Grains, which unless it’s been banned where your food comes from, are almost always laced with gut- and immune-system-killing Glyphosate?  Do you get fresh Fruits and Vegetables from Farmers Markets as much as possible, where they were still Alive a few hours ago, or do you depend on Supermarkets where Produce can be weeks old.  Are you still eating Processed Foods (anything in the store that has more than one ingredient).  On this Planet it’s Living Plants and Fungi and Bacteria that carry the Life Force; everything else is Second Hand.

Wants, Mission, Compromise 6

June 18, 2018

The Neptune Station (18 June 4:30 pm PDT) chart is less complicated – and less straightforward – than the others…

The first thing we have to notice is the Grand Trine and Kites (Fabulous Blessings – blue lines), because all three of our Big Three charts this extended weekend have included this feature, even though they’re in different Degrees…

  • Saturday’s Makemake Station (Manifestation) chart featured two Grand Trines, both Kites, one in Earth and one in Fire!
    • The Kite on the Fire Grand Trine focused on Makemake itself, lending Spiritual Cred to what we’re Manifesting
    • The Kite on the Earth Grand Trine focused on OR10 in Pisces, reinforcing the notion that we have to Clear our Held Emotions in order to find enough Authenticity to Manifest What We Really Want
  • Sunday’s Eris-Juno Initiation (the Coming into Consciousness of What Was Previously Denied) held a Fire Grand Trine and Double Kite (ie, Almost-Grand-Sextile), with the foci of the Kites on Rebirth Haumea and Unlimited Potential Chaos
  • Today’s Neptune Station chart’s Grand Trine is in Water, again with a Double Kite, focused on Self-Confidence Chariklo and a Conjunction which we’ll discuss more, that should Shift our approach to Ego Death

That omits Air, or Mentality, which on some levels is appropriate, as one of Western Culture’s most serious Self-Sabotage is overfocus on Mentality.  On the other hand, three of the Kites focus on planets in Air Signs.

And veteran readers will already be wondering where the Vacancy is, in today’s Neptune-Station chart Almost-Grand-Sextile. 

A Sextile occurs when two planets are two Signs apart, and it signifies Grace, but “the Native” (that’s what astrologers call the person whose natal chart we’re discussing – in this case since we’re speaking of what’s going on the Sky just now, all of us are “the Native”) has to take the first step to get the Grace flowing.  Co-Creativity, in other words.

A Grand Sextile consists of six planets equally spaced around the Zodiacal Loop, all two Signs apart; it symbolizes Great Symbiotic Grace – but again, us Natives have to Initiate the Projects that we want to Fly.  An Almost-Grand-Sextile is five of these six, leaving a “Vacancy” in the Grand-Sextile. 

As with any Vacancy, it’s up to us to supply the Missing Energy to complete the Configuration and enable the Energy to Flow.  For an Almost-Grand-Sextile, we have two assignments – supply the Initiatory Energy for each of the five Sextiles, and also supply the Missing Energy that will complete the Grand Sextile and remove impediments to Flow.

The Vacancy here is 17 Virgo, “A Volcanic Eruption” – Intense!  Not how we’re used to thinking about Neptune, but then Tsunamis are Neptunian too.  In other words, the Neptune chart is advising that we Don’t Hold Anything Back, even if (or especially if) we have to Express it more violently than we would prefer.

That’s a pretty strong hint that we should talk about the “Shift in our approach to Ego Death” that we mentioned earlier.  This is a Conjunction between asteroids Nemesis (Ego Death) and Lachesis (Conscious Manipulation of Timelines) – Conscious Manipulation of our Timelines around Ego Death in other words. We may be accelerating some, delaying others, and/or Changing the ground rules of the whole ball game.

This Opposes another Conjunction, between Jupiter (Expansion) and asteroid Hopi (Respect for All Things), suggesting that we may be removing Judgment, including Self-Judgment, from our processing of Ego Death.  That would compliment the Conjunction between Sappho (Self-Love) and Uranus (Soul) in the Makemake-Station chart.  That chart is still in effect, as we have to remember to see the weekend’s three events as one, since they’re so close in Linear Time.

So, if an Explosion Destroys Your Ego, Go with it, to see where it leads.  You’ll be Delighted, though wear your shoes and take a broom, as there may be some broken glass to cross first.

Lots left to look at, including the Nemesis-Lachesis Cycle, the Hopi-Jupiter Cycle, and the Sappho-Uranus Cycle, to see what they’re about and what sort of Changes they have in store for us.  We’ll save all that for later today.

Paranoid Thoughts II

June 6, 2018

A couple of quick notes about the previous post…

First, we mentioned “Shifting our Approach to Ego Death, toward Love and Excitement rather than Fear and Resistance” and some may have wondered how the devil we could be Excited and Loving about Ego Death.  I mean, we’d probably usually have to be awfully miserable to be Excited about Dying.  But an Ego Death is just a Molt. 

When a Crab wriggles out of its old shell, it’s so they can Grow.  Their old shell is rigid, and they can only get exactly as big as the shell before they need to trade it in for a bigger one.  Turns out the Crab is a fabulous metaphor for Ego Death, because once they wriggle out, their nascent new shell is soft, and they have to hide out till it hardens, in order to avoid being a tasty meal for someone else.

So instead of Resisting Ego Death beforehand, then afterwards wallowing in the residue of our Resistance (such as the repercussions of the Limiting Oaths we spoke of in the last post), we can Choose to Recognize that an Ego Death is on its way, and Focus our Attention on the Excitement we’ll feel when we’ve cast off that old Limiting Shell and are Free to Explore New Possibilities.

Of course many of us, much of the time, Are our Ego, so it’s not trivial to just step aside and say Okay, I’ll Die now.  In Buffalo Gals, Ursula talks about how “Coyote is always dying!”  Coyote is a clever one.  So what’s an easily-remembered trick for stepping outside of the Ego into the Ethers?  Michael Pollan talks about this quite a bit in his new book How to Change Your Mind, but I think just “Poor-Sweethearting” yourself is a lot quicker and easier.

“You Poor Sweetheart, are you feeling like you’d rather Die?”  Then of course you’d pause to see if the Bummed You had anything to say to the now-Empathic You.  And preferable Change the Subject to see what might happen next.  Then after a while you could see if any remnants of the Bummed You was still about, and if so Ask them, “What would your Next Life be like for you if it was Pure Heaven?”  Then the two of You could talk about it and come up with something Exciting that you could both Love.

We need to take one other Lesson from Mr. & Ms. Crab – hide out for a while after an Ego Death.  We’ll be very Vulnerable and Tender, a virtual Newborn, and we’ll need extra Care and Protection.  And we’re the best person to provide it, since even our Most Loved ones may be motivated to take advantage of our Vulnerability and Manipulate us (No Blame, we all do it).  Meditation, Introversion, Introspection.

Second, you may have experienced that (lack of) transition from Nessus (Abuse) to the Dan Scranton Channeling (Ascension) as a bit abrupt, so I wanted to be explicit that the more we can Clear our Abuse Traumas (which turns out to be the same as Clearing our Abuse Expectations), the more we can move our Life into Expectations of Grace. 

Who knows how or “by whom” it’s being or been engineered, but given recent astrological processes, it doesn’t seem like a coincidence that the Nessus Station precedes the “influx of energies that are coming our way… as part of the solstice” (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/06/01/solstice-i/).

After the Nessus Station (9 June) and before the Solstice (21 June 3am PDT), we have two more Stations, or rather, one more double Station, as Makemake Stands Still 16 June (7pm PDT at 3 Libra) and Neptune 18 June (4:30 pm at 17 Pisces).  When two Stations occur close together, it’s as though the two planets are Conjoining.  Since Neptune and Makemake Conjoin only every 51,000 years, this is a rare opportunity for us.

Neptune is about anything Bigger than we are, and especially everything Bigger than our Ego.  For instance, Group Souls, including Cultures, are prominent in the realm of Neptune, as are the notions of God and Goddess.

If you’ve ever noticed how you Act and Talk differently in the presence of one person, than you do in the presence of another, or how someone else does this, you’re looking at different Group Souls.  Of course in all probability Codependence (the disinclination to displease) will be involved, probably to a larger extent, but Group Souls are also active there – and we can productively examine our Codependence by looking at it through the window of Group Souls.  How does your Codependence differ when you’re with different people or different groups?

When in the Solstice I post Dan’s Arcturian friends speak about…

“If you can think more as a being in a collective, rather than as an individual, then you can band together and…”

They’re talking about our Neptunian Identities.  And when they finish the sentence with…

“…in your co-creative power, you can make broad and sweeping changes on planet Earth.

They’re talking about Makemake, as Makemake is all about Manifestation.

Neptune is now 167 Degrees ahead of Makemake.  That’s nine twentieths of the way ’round the Zodiacal loop.  The Twentieth Harmonic is the Aeon, signifying the sort of Wisdom that encompasses “longevity, history, and broad perspective” in all circumstances, to quote Angie.

New readers may not know that we use Angeles Arrien’s Tarot Handbook as our guide to the Angular Harmonics.

And the Ninth Harmonic is about Meditation, Introversion, and Introspection.  Sounds like we’re Converging toward…

“This is a shift in consciousness, which means nothing in the physical realm is going to be responsible for making it happen.  It is the true nature of consciousness to expand and evolve, and therefore, as you make it your mission not to do something in the physical realm, but instead consciously evolve, you are joining the team.  You have opportunities every single day.  They come to you in the choices that you are being given.

“And you can help yourselves and help the entire universe at the same time by making the choice that is more inclusive than exclusive.  You can help by processing your emotions.  You can help by making eye contact with someone else and helping that person understand that he or she matters.  You can be kind instead of being right.  You can forgive.  You can send transmissions of love and compassion.  You can speak your truth, be true to yourself, and love yourself no matter what you have done, or said, or thought.”

As Dan said in the previous post.
