October 6, 2022

Feels too good to be true (which may mean it ain’t), but astrologically anyway, “the coast is clear” for once! 

The Moon is In-Bounds (Panic not so much) till 10:49 am 13 October 2022 (6:49 pm BST 13 Oct, 3:49 am AEST 14 Oct).

The next Stationary planet (Strong Ambient Energy) isn’t till 14 October, though astroevents tend to fill any empty Time-Space, so we could Encounter that sooner.  It’s about Self-Confidence Issues, including Self-Doubt,1 so we want to Intend (any other PIAVA will do fine as well) to be Confident in our Ability to Notice our Self-Doubt if does arise, and be Loving with it.  If we said to ourself, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re feeling Self-Doubt, aren’t you” (followed by Changing the Subject of course) it would be delicious, as it would not only take Our Identity out of Doubt, it would leave us Identifying with Compassion.  Practice that a couple times, and you may never Doubt yourself again!  If that sounds Dangerous, make sure to be Loving with your Doubt about it!

And my own Self-Doubt is Up already!! Thank the Goddess I know it’s coming, or I’d be Believing it!

We do have a couple of Sign Changes, which aren’t usually Disruptive, though they can Shift the General Ambient Energy a bit.

On 8 October, the Energy of Mary Magdalene 2 moves from Sagittarius (Let It Go! ) to Capricorn (Just Fix It! ). From The Seven Sacred Flames (pp166-7), compiled by Aurelia Louise Jones…

“It is extremely important for this Truth to be revealed now, that Mary Magdalene was a high initiate and priestess of the Sacred Fire during her lifetime with Jesus… She was unfairly discriminated against by the early ‘fathers of the [self-proclaimed “Christian”] Church’ in their attempt to… maintain control over what they feared the most, the energies of the ‘Divine Mother,’ that Mary Magdalene represented at the time, along with Mother Mary, the mother of Jesus. Both were very high initiates of the Temple of Isis and had the required attainment to hold that energy while Jesus was performing his Sacred Mission. It is time for hu[per]ity to open their hearts to the loving energies of Mary Magdalene, seeing her for who she really is and forgetting the lies maliciously invented against her.”

…(which we’ve added to the Bibliography). Her Energy has been hanging out in Sagittarius helping us Let Go Of all this Karma off and on since December 2021, She’ll be in Capricorn till January. She dipped her toe into Capricorn earlier this year from April till June. She should now be Open to Petitions to help with Rebuilding projects, particularly those aimed at Collaborative Teamwork.

Then we do have a Full Moon 1:58 pm PDT 9 October, in 17 Aries,3 but it’s a Grand Unx, meaning that there’s somebody near 17 Degrees of every Sign, each planet one Sign from the planet in the next and the previous Signs.4 That makes the next few weeks an Ideal time for Letting Go of Self-Sabotaging Habits, especially…

  • Where The Most Important Thing is to Heal your Codependence in Relationships where your primary Strategy for Improvement has been Hope.5 As they say, Hope is Necessary, but it’s not the most Effective Strategy for Resolving a Problem. If we’re in this position, it may be because we haven’t Realized that the only person we can Change is Us. Our odds of succeeding at Waiting and Hoping for someone else to Change are close to nil. We’ll probably have to Make Our Own Needs Clearly Known, or Recognize that Our Needs Are Being Ignored, or both. And we’ll probably have to make a Fearless and Searching Inventory of what we are Gaining from the Relationship, so we can Weigh it against the Loss of Self that Results from Not Being Able to Live Our Truth.
  • This is by no means Easy, and it we aren’t Fully Aware of our own Needs it will be a very Clumsy process. This is not the kind of Change anyone makes without a great deal of Practice, but the whole process is in many ways a prerequisite for Enlightenment or Ascension. In order to be True to Our Soul Self, we will have to Give Up most of the Compromises we’ve made so we could Survive in a Patriarchic World. Will our Self-Reliant 5D Community Magically Appear just as we’re Ready to replace our old 3D one? We may need our Intermittent Fasting practice more than we Imagined.

This is only one of our dozen Unx Opportunities. For instance, The Most Important One Is Our Need to Take Full Ownership of Our Historical Abuse.6 We can talk more about these dozen in another port.

For now, it’s also Important to point out that in a Grand Unx there are no T-Squares, only Grand Crosses. A T-Square (Major Challenge and SuperPower) is two planets on almost Exactly Opposite sides of the Zodiac, with a third planet halfway between them. A Grand Cross (a Series of Hassles that Complement One Another if We’re Patient with Them) is four planets more or less equally spaced around the Zodiac.

For instance, where the Most Important Thing Is to Heal Our Codependence with Hope (see note 5), the Grand Cross includes a Discussion between this Healing Codependence and the Empirical Truth about the Boundaries our Sovereignty prefers to Set.7 This Discussion is Confusingly Mixed with a second Debate between Our Emotional Discouragement and an Ego Death around our Trust in our Values.8

More Doors to Open here, in future posts.

1 Station of dwarf planet Chariklo (Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt ) 1:42 am PDT 14 October 2022, in 5 Aquarius (Surrender to Merging the Chthonic with the Cosmic – which is exactly what Aluna Joy predicted for the fifth phase of the Core Ascension Portal that ended yesterday!). That’s 9:42 am BST and 6:42 pm AEST.

2 Asteroid Magdalena enters the first Degree of Capricorn (Tradition of one’s own) 4:03 pm PDT 8 October, which is 12:03 am BST and 9:03 am AEST, both 9 October.

3 17 Aries is Living Outside of Culture but Open to Spirit. 1:58 pm PDT 9 October is 9:58 pm BST 9 October and 6:58 am AEST 10 October.

4 Which defines the Unx, or 30° Angle, which is the 12th Harmonic (360°/12=30°), which corresponds to the 12th Major Arcana in Tarot, the Hanged Man, or Pattern-Breaker. He doesn’t Hang by his Neck or Fingernails, but by his Heels, in order to Get a New Perspective on Things, the Better to Change them.

5 Asteroid Panacea Out of Bounds (Profound Healing) in 15 Capricorn (Searching for a Way to Avoid Claiming Profound Power, and finding none, needing the timing, willingness, and discernment to Claim Openly the Power that is Dangerous but undeniably yours) Merged with (Conjunct) dwarf planet Hylonome (Codependence) in 20 Capricorn (Staying Committed to Clearing the Present when the Future is so Compelling), Unx to both Pandora Out of Bounds (Exaggerated Hope) in 15 Sagittarius (Adept with Apocalypse Once We Accept It ) and Saturn (The Most Important Thing) in 19 Aquarius (Half Observer but Half Participant in the Apocalypse, thus able to See Alternatives).

6 Saturn (The Most Important Thing) in 17 Aquarius (Maintaining Tradition) Unx to both Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) in 15 Pisces (“Stunningly endowed with whatever it takes to reveal Spirit in action” ) and Panacea-Hylonome in Capricorn (see prior note). We need to Leap at every Opportunity to Own our Abuse and Privilege while Nessus is in 15 Pisces. It’s been there since 14 September and will stay there till 24 October. It was there earlier from 25 February till 23 March 2022. Considering those dates, it’s obvious that Our Victimhood about Putin’s Invasion of Ukraine (and about other elements of Climate Change et al ) is the place to start. This deserves its own post. It will be there again between 31 December 2022 and 6 February 2023.

7 Panacea-Hylonome (see note 5) Opposes the Stellium (Group of 3 or more planets) of asteroids Veritas (Truth of the Mind) in 18 Cancer (Obsessed with Polarity Karma and Our Shadow till We Finally Break Through to See the Dualism as a Game) and Pallas (Boundaries) in 15 Cancer, home of the Major Star Sirius (Brilliance at Natural Community), and Black Moon Lilith (Self-Sovereignty) in 20 Cancer (Coming into Enlightenment ).

8 Moon (Instincts) in 17 Aries (Living Outside of Culture but Open to Spirit) Merged with (Conjunct) Chiron (Despair and Miracles) in 15 Aries, home of the Major Star Alpheratz in Andromeda (Freedom of Action and the Need to Be Present with Oneself ) Opposite the Stellium of the Sun (Our Essence) in 17 Libra (Sensitivity Covered by Self-Defeating Self-Obsession), the asteroids Requiem (Ego Death) in 19 Libra (Repeated Impulsive Actions that Unexpectedly Break Through Ossified Karma) and Eurydike (Trust ) in 18 Libra (Compulsive Control Till Realizing that it’s a Dead End and Finding a Way to Sit Still with Anxiety), and Venus (Our Values) in 14 Libra (Giving Up Identification with the Surficial and Moving Inside).

Enlightenment and Awareness

September 7, 2022

Our Awareness will be Enhanced through Friday 9 September 2022.1 The SuperPower that’s Lit Up is an Ornery-Looking Enlightenment.2 At the end of this post we include a Channeling from Brenda Hoffman that may be too relevant for Comfort.

We usually look in this blog at the sort of Challenges which hinder our Adeptitude3 at our Many Endeavors on all Levels, which astrologers refer to as “T-Squares.” But now we’ll add a more subtle Challenge to the fray, those which hinder our Ability to be Grokked by Other People. Like our Challenges to Adeptitude, our Challenges to Grokability 4 have to do with combining Concepts or Actions in ways that, as Gracie put it, Break All the Rules You Learned in School. And like our Challenges to Adeptitude, our Challenges to Grokability are SuperPowers that are so easily Confused with Disabilities and Personality Deficits – since we’re so seldom Grokked, we lack friendly Mirrors, and Feel Flawed. And like our Challenges to Adeptitude, we’ve probably spent a good part of our Lifetime Effort trying to “correct” our Challenges to Grokability – misguidedly trying to erase a SuperPower!

How does this work? In the current example, there are People among us who do not have the Ability to Discern any Difference between Manifesting, Trusting, Experiencing Ego Death, and Being Consciously Aware. Probably not many, the odds of its recurrence are vanishingly small, but Think Sathya Sai Baba – he Trusted that he could Manifest virtually Anything that he was Consciously Aware of, and he probably Experienced many many Ego Deaths to get to that place – unless he was born under similar “stars.”5 There’s actually nothing really New in this Combination – we can’t Consciously Manifest what we aren’t Aware Of, or if we don’t Trust our own Ability to do so, and Ego Death is probably necessary to Get There. But this sort of Instant Karma is rare, or we’d be fresh out of Unfulfilled Desires – Perish the Thought!

At any rate, it’s this Instant Manifestation that’s the SuperPower afoot here till at least 9pm PDT Friday, which is not to say that you might not Suffer or Enjoy many Ego Deaths to pull it off. Sort of like Micky in the Hall of the Mountain King…

Or something like that, as Gene Gendlin would have us say. Have Fun with it, but don’t get Greedy, and Remember that You Get What You Ask For, and above all Remember that whatever remains of Your Shadow that you haven’t sent away, is right there Asking with you. The real point is that it might not be a bad time to PIAVA that we Lovingly and Gently Increase our Trust in Our Adeptitude at Manifesting What We Need.

Now, if you encountered someone with these Skills, would you be able to Understand Who They Really Are and Empathize with Them? To Grok them? Or would you be too busy asking them for a Boon? Most if not All of us have these “Stelliums” that give us SuperPowers that Other People have no way of Grokking, and when we do, it Inhibits our Communication. For instance, our Culture Recognizes Blue and Red and Purple, but unless you studied Art or Politics, School may never have taught you that you could make any shade of Purple by combining Red and Blue. What if you were unable to Distinguish Red from Blue from Purple? You’d frequently be asking others what they were talking about, and you’d be wondering if your Eyes were wired wrong.

This seems like a trivial example in some ways, but what if you had a Stellium of Mars (Action, Masculine), Venus (Values, Feminine), Neptune (Confusion), and Ka’epaoka’awela (Transmutation), and had little or no hardwired Ability to Distinguish between those four Concepts and their Referents? You’d be in big trouble in Florida or Texas these days, because your Concept Set and its Emotional and Physical Manifestations would contravene the Rigid Boundaries in many people’s view of the World. When they try to fit you into their Worldview they’d have to make you a “Groomer,” or worse. You wouldn’t get much Grokking, especially now that it’s been heavily Politicized – you’d have moved from “Weird” to near “Criminal” in their Conceptual Syntax.

  • As is frequently the case with WordPress, we can’t tell if this is a Bug or a Feature (Features are different in their Home Galaxy than they are in my Home Galaxy), but I no longer seem to have the ability to make lists Purple, or anything but Black. So pretend like these next many lines are Purple – it’ll be good practice for your Imagination. Brenda’s quote follows these Faux-Purple lines.
  • 1 Mercury Stationary 8:37 pm PDT 9 September 2022, which is 4:37 am BST and 1:37 pm AEST, both 10 September, in 9 Libra (Profound Thirst for Experiencing and Appreciating The New), wherein Lives Fixed Star Diadem (Self-Sacrifice Motivated by Love).
  • 2 There is a single T-Square that’s Self-Resolving (a Diamond Star), Focused on minor planet Zhulong (The Chinese Red Dragon of Enlightenment ) in 7 Scorpio (Banished for Dedication to Embracing and Letting Go of All Masks; We Can barely Stand It but We Know It’s Our Path and Wouldn’t Have It Any Other Way).
  • The Base is Chariklo (Self-Confidence) in 5 Aquarius (Surrender to Merging the Chthonic with the Cosmic) and Arachne (Grandmother Spider Who Weaves the Web of Life) in 9 Aquarius (Totally Spaced Out into a Richly Evolving Inner Ascension while Patiently Dealing with Constant Trouble in the “Real” World, on the Path to the Union of Opposites) Opposite Samadhi (Enlightenment ) in 10 Leo (Compelled to Resist any Resistence to Who I Must Be while Knowing It’s My Path), Varuna (The Life Force) in 7 Leo (Ready for Enlightenment ), and Sappho (Self-Love) in 5 Leo (An Old Soul Who Discovers that the Old Rules No Longer Apply).
  • The Finger of the Goddess (Self-Resolution) is Jupiter (Expansion) in 6 Aries (Passion Unconstrained by Social Conventions) and Salacia Out of Bounds (Exaggerated Competition between Our Programming and our True Self ) in 8 Aries (Willingness and Ability to Play-Act Constantly) Sextile Mars (Action) and Moira (Fate and Choice) in 12 Gemini (Great Charisma and the Danger of Ego-Attachment ), which is adjacent to the Royal Star Aldebaran (Integrity).
  • 3 That is, our T-Squares. I know Adeptitude is a made-up word, but it sounds so much better than the official word Adeptness that I can’t resist using it. Think of it as Having or Growing an Aptitude for Being Adept or Skilled. If you run into Webster on the street or happen by Oxford, suggest the word to them, so they can catch up.
  • 4 Sorry, I’m on a roll. We’re referring to what astrologers call a Stellium, or three or more planets close to one another.
  • 5 Sathya Sai Baba didn’t have a natal Stationary Mercury-Makemake-Eurydike-Requiem (respectively, Enhanced Conscious Awareness, Manifestation, Trust, and Respect for Death) Stellium like we have here in Friday’s Mercury Station chart, but he did have meaningful Relationships between those planets. His natal Requiem Opposed his Makemake, his Requiem Septiled (Timing) his Eurydike, and the Angle between his Requiem and his Mercury was between the 15th Harmonic (Pan, the Overlighting Diva of Nature) and the 16th (Renovation). Of course, any Guru of his Stature would have been Conscious of Bringing in any Adeptitudes he wanted from any number of LifeTimes.

Brenda Hoffman’s latest Life-Tapestry-Creations Channeling Illuminates some Observations that seem relevant to our current astroadventure…


“You helped shift the earth and personally transitioned far beyond 3D. Yet, you feel small instead of powerful or commanding.

“You feel you have given up so much of your life – and for what?

“Such is to be expected. A 3D infant does not feel powerful once birthed to 3D earth. Someone needs to feed, bathe, and change them. Even if that infant cries in emotional or physical pain, they do so hoping someone will care for their needs. ThreeD infants have little power other than their dependency.

“As a 3D adult, you also had minimum power without the assistance of others. No matter how creative your art, inventions, activities, or actions were, you depended on others to purchase, observe, or participate. Even though some of you became hermits, you relied on others for necessities such as food, gas, hunting equipment, tools, etc.

“You are now shifting in reverse. You have the power of your life but do not yet understand how to use that power. It is as if you are crying for someone to feed you or change your diaper even though you are qualified to do so yourself.

“You are no longer beholden to anyone or anything. A concept that is freeing but also frightening. For it means you are, in a sense, an isolated being. A concept you have fought against for 3D eons. Even though you no longer need to follow shoulds, you do not know what or who to follow.

“The answer to that last statement is very simple; you are to follow yourself.

“Following yourself does not mean you are stuck without interactions or companionship, but instead that you are more discerning than you were in 3D. For if you feel uncomfortable in a situation, that situation is no longer part of your being.

“That last sentence means activities, people, and places you once held dear are no longer. A concept you have acted upon many times in the past few years, in preparation for now.

“With emotional pain, you shed family and friends who no longer felt comfortable, fully expecting those empty slots to be filled with more compatible beings. Instead, you are once again deep within a shedding process.

“The difference now is you cannot comprehend how you will replace those pieces of your heart that once seemed full. You are tired, empty, and beginning to believe this is your new life. A new life with as many do-not and cannot feelings as was true when you first started shedding friends and relatives years or months ago.

“So it is you are frightened and angry at yourself and the Universes with an inner cry of “Where’s my stuff, where are my people?”

“This shedding process has been and likely continues to be quite painful, because a large part of your 3D worth was based on your human connections and interactions. You now feel as if no one wants to play with you, or stated a bit differently, no one wants to play like you.

“This shedding, this gutting of your 3D being, is more difficult than you anticipated before entering the earth in this lifetime. The first shedding wave that happened years or months ago was relatively easy compared to now. Those you first sent on their way were part of you, but not as deeply ingrained as those you are currently shedding. So you feel as if you have nothing or no one left. As if you are by yourself on a desert island.

“Even if you maintain some relationships, those relationships are not the intense relationships you once had. As if they are beings swimming around your heart, but not necessarily within your heart. You are lonely and alone. And despite this time being a prelude to your new life with new interactions, you are having difficulties believing such is so.

“You are now ready for new interactions, for you have emptied your vessel of those beings and actions that are no longer part of your current life. By doing so, you are slowly discovering new interests that do not require interactions with 3D beings.

“Even though you purchase food and clothing and likely remain in the same or similar physical community, your needs no longer include pretending to accept statements or actions to feel accepted.

“Not playing that 3D exchange game is your discomfort, for you have yet to discover that you can exist on the earth without doing so. That you do not have to pander to or condone to maintain a friendship or action that no longer holds much interest. You are new and fresh, looking for new interactions in which you do not need to trade your inner being needs for companionship or any activity you once held dear.

“You are new, finally allowing yourself to interact between dimensions, frequencies, and the rightness of being within you. You no longer have to wear the right clothes, say the right things, or live in the right environment to be part of a community you are partially comfortable with.

“You are you. And the more you project that independence of being, the more easily you will adapt to new you – and find others of similar interests.

“This shift is not rocket science; it is merely claiming yourself no matter how unlike 3D you it feels. You are no longer of 3D, and neither is the earth. So be it.”

Pattern-Busting Full Moon

August 11, 2022

Margery asks if we could show a picture of the 6:36 pm PDT 11 August 2022 Full Moon chart, which we could call a Ball-of-Yarn configuration, as it would keep a Cat occupied till nap time. We actually call it a Grand Unx – an “unx” is one twelfth of something, and a “grand” fills the Zodiac, so a Grand Unx is twelve planets equally spaced around the Astroloop. Yes, we could always get one of these if we use enough asteroids, and we use quite a few, but it’s been quite a while since we’ve seen one, so it’s not as facile as it seems. The main feature is twelve Unx Angles, each of which indicates Pattern-Breaking, so it’s a chart worth celebrating, especially as these Heavy Energies that so many people are reporting are Lighting Up everything in our Karma that we haven’t Cleared yet.

Just a few Examples…

  • Karma is dead; it died with Linear Time ten years ago. But we’re all still clinging to its corpse. Whenever a polyp of Karma breaks off and falls away, we Feel Weird, we don’t know what’s happening, and our name isn’t even Mr. Jones. We reach out for the familiar, to Anchor ourself. What’s familiar? Our Karma! So we Embrace those old Comfortable Patterns enthusiastically, as if they were our favorite snacks! But Looky Here! That so-very-Intense Exaggerated Karma Frosted with the Emotions We’d Rather Die than Feel (asteroid Karma Out of Bounds on the South Node) is Unx to (one Sign from) New Beginnings (asteroid Klotho)! So without even trying, we can Break this Pattern of Grasping our Dead Karma – all we need to do is Announce our Intention to Let Our Dead Karma Go like a Hot Potato Instead!
  • But wait! We’ve all Wrapped our Identity around our Karma – it’s inevitable. Our Karma is Who We Are, so no matter how nasty it is, we’re Ego-Attached to it. If we haven’t yet caught ourself Bragging about our Karma, we need to start Listening to what we’re saying! We can Intend to Let It Go, but what about the Ego Death – those aren’t Fun! What’s on the other side of Karma-South Node? Asteroid Narcissus (Overfocus on our Identity)! So without even trying, we can Break this Pattern of Ego-Identifying with our Karma – all we need to do is Announce our Intention to Experience our Ego Deaths Lovingly and Gently so We Can Be Excited about the Glorious Freedom we’ll Enjoy once we do!
  • But Hold On! What about our Abuse Karma and all of the Unconscious Limitations that we use to Protect ourself from those Memories (Nessus-Vesta-Heracles) that we’ve buried so deep in the Dungeon that we don’t even know they happened? Well, Trusting our Instincts Unquestioningly (Saturn-Moon) Unxes that Stellium (Nessus-Vesta-Heracles), so without even trying, we can Break this Pattern of Being Triggered for no apparent reason – all we need to do is Vow from now on to Act on our Instincts Immediately, without Questioning them and without ever Explaining them, no matter how Weird we think it’ll look to others.
  • But Shit, when I’m Triggered I’m usually Feeling Depressed and Powerless, and my Instincts are nowhere in sight! Often I Feel Depressed and Powerless and I don’t even know when or how I was Triggered! I usually think it’s “just me” that’s Depressing and Powerless. But on the other side of Nessus-Vesta-Heracles, it’s Unx to Despair and Miracles (Chiron). Well, we know how to Poor Sweetheart ourself out of Despair and Create Miracles, but when we’re Depressed and Powerless, we’re Regressed to whatever Bummers we’re Unconsciously Reliving. When we Regress, we Forget everything we’ve Learned since those Repressed Bummers happened! So without even trying, we can Break this Pattern of Forgetting What We Know – all we need to do is Vow from now on that when we’re Regressed we’ll Remember All of the Tools We’ve Learned to Restore our Current-Life Identity, like Poor-Sweethearting!

No Wonder the Energies Feel Heavy!! Can you Imagine how the other eight Unxes might play out?

Apart from the Glories of the Grand Unx, the Big Deal about this Full Moon is that it “Squares the Nodes.” What does that mean?

  • Well, the Nodal Axis – South Node to North Node – is the most important Axis in a chart, as it indicates the Source, Direction, and Destination of “the Native” (the person or event for which the chart is drawn). In this Full Moon, the Source is a Karmic Hellhole, the Destination is Reunion of Day-to-Day Identity with Soul, and the Direction is from Emotional Overload to Stability.1
  • At any Full Moon, our Inner Male and our Inner Female are Face-to-Face, where as much as they are able, they can be Honest about the Quality of their Union. In Carl Jung’s approach to Psychology, which we applaud, the Perfection of this Union is more or less equivalent to Enlightenment, thus a Key Ingredient of our 5D Endeavors.
  • The “Square” means that these two Critically Important Axes sit at Right Angles to one another, meaning in applied mathematics that they are Independent – they do not Influence one another under the radar. So our Purpose (Nodal Axis) and our Integrity (Inner Harmony) are a priori Unrelated, and each can Operate and Negotiate without Unconsciously Compromising themself.

Notice how different this is than the conventional astrological interpretation of a Square – as a Crisis. In a Left-Brain Patriarchal Culture, the very idea of Surrendering Power to the Female is Anathema. In this blog we’ve been inching toward interpreting Squares as Superpowers rather than Challenges. We don’t mean that the Challenges go away. In the previous post we averred that “If We Aren’t Ready to Receive What We’re Asking For, the Universe Will Show Us Examples of Why We Aren’t.” If we Experience our Squares as Superpowers, we’re Ready to Receive What We Want. If we Experience them as Challenges, the Universe is Clarifying for us Exactly what we still need to Let Go Of in order to Support Ourself without Unconscious Compromise, aka without Self-Sabotage.

The Loud and Clear Message in this particular Full Moon is that The Most Important Thing is to Trust our Instincts.2 Jung used to say that people who emphasized Thinking were not Rational, because they weren’t in touch with their Values (which are accessed through Emotion). In an Ideal Lifetime, our Inner Female calls the shots (assuming She’s in touch with Her Feelings), and our Inner Male follows Her lead. That’s Inner Female and Inner Male – any Relationship between actual Living People needs relative Equality in both Vision and Action, as each person will contribute Vision from their own Inner Female, and each person will contribute Action from their own Inner Male.

A Grand Unx is so incredibly rich that we’ve only begun to scratch the surface. Full Moon Energies are usually Prominent for several weeks afterward, so we have time, and we’ll Dive Deeper in the next post.

  • 1 Source = South Node, Merged with asteroid Karma Out of Bounds (Exaggerated ), Destination = North Node, Merged with Uranus (Soul ), Direction = Scorpio (Fearless Searching) to Taurus (Grounded Materiality).
  • 2 Moon (Instincts) Conjunct Saturn (The Most Important Thing).


June 11, 2022

That’s really what Karma is like isn’t it, Whack-A-Mole. Not to mention Karma’s Messenger, astrology. It’s critical to be Aware of any Fear that astrology ever Triggers for you. Astrology is a Teacher, and if you’re Scared by any of your Teachers, you need to Stand Up to them and not let them Intimidate you. If they throw you out of class, so be it, that wasn’t the right class for you anyway. And if it’s a class in Fear, you need to Stand Up anyway, the straighter the better, to get a good Grounding and a good straight Energy Flow between the Earth Star beneath your Feet and the Higher Chakras above your head, if you want to pass the class.

When I wake up before I get back in my Body, with my skin crawling from Fear, the most effective technique I’ve used is Tapping. “Even though I’m Scared, I Deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself…” Repeatedly, till my skin has stopped trying to crawl under the bed, till I feel Grounded again, and I’m Clear and Ready to deal with the Fear Effectively. We don’t have to move our Body, because our Energy System registers Imagined Taps almost as well as Physical Taps. Long Inhales and Exhales, through the Nose only, helps too. They’ll take your Body out of Fight/Flight/Freeze mode.

Not that I’m forecasting Fear astrologically, but the next big Mole or astroevent to Whack, on 16 June 2022, is about Abuse and Privilege, which can Trigger Deep and Unpleasant Emotions. From the Nutshell Perspective, that chart features three Challenges that aren’t Self-Resolving, though all three are also major parties to Dumb-Luck Blessings, and the three Challenges are all Connected tightly together by the Blessings.1 It sounds like one of those astrological Configurations where it’s best that we don’t try to Intervene to Mitigate our Memories of Abuse, but do the best we can to Stand Still and let the Energy run its course, as each Challenge looks like it will end up being the Resolution for the Others, unless we try to Rescue our Olde Ego, and screw it all up. Plus, it promises a Big Jump in our Consciousness if we’re able to Let It Be and Observe it with relative Detachment.2

Well, Abuse and Privilege is the next Mole to Whack if we don’t count the 14 June Full Supermoon.3 While we’re likely to Feel the Impact of the 16 June event Grow till the 16th, then taper off (assuming we haven’t Intervened), we’re likely to Feel the Influence of the 14 June event Growing Stronger after the 14th, though the two will be Muddled, since we’re Feeling both already, and we really should consider them both together. Even astrologically Unrelated events Merge when they Converge in Linear Time.4

Which is Fortunate, since the Full Supermoon is all about Self-Love, Self-Respect, Self-Appreciation, and Self-Sovereignty.5 So if we can keep our Eye on those four Qualities while we’re Feeling Around in our Abuse/Privilege History, Herstory, and other Lifetimes in Other Places, we’ll Win an (perhaps the Most ) Esteemed Lifetime Prize, which is Expanding Our Consciousness into Greater Love in the Face of Potential Disaster.

Our Lineage is Immortal. We’ve Suffered so we could Truly Understand the Suffering of Others in order to give them the Gift of Healing Empathy. It’s time to Step Back Up and Honor Ourselves for that.

  • 1 Dwarf planet Nessus (Abuse and Privilege – you can’t have one without the other ) Stationary (Exaggerated ) until 3:50 am PDT 16 June 2022 (which is 11:50 am BST in London and 8:50 pm AEST in Eastern Australia, both 16 June), in 17 Pisces (Innocent Awe). We’ll cover the three T-Squares (Challenges) and the three Grand Trines (Dumb-Luck Blessings) later.
  • 2 The Nessus Station is Merged with asteroid Juno (Expansion of Consciousness) also in 17 Pisces.
  • 3 Full Supermoon (Illumination) in 24 Sagittarius (The Divine Mother ), near the Fixed Star Ras Alhague (Healing) occurs at 4:52 am PDT 14 June 2022 (12:52 pm BST in Cambridge and 9:52 pm in Sydney, both 14 June). A Supermoon is a Full Moon that appears larger than usual because the Moon is at or near its Perigee, at the closer end of its Oval-shaped orbit around the Earth.
  • 4 The Nessus Station is 82° ahead of the Full Moon and 98° behind the Full-Moon Sun. The Moon makes a Waning Triununtile (3/11 of the Zodiac) to Nessus, and the Sun a Waxing Triuntricile (3/13) to Nessus. The Waning Triununtile is about Humbly Loving the Way Our Talents Have Shone (Third and Eleventh Harmonics), and the Waxing Triuntricile is about Intending to Respect and Embrace Our Ego Deaths (Third and Thirteenth Harmonics). This is where the Self-Appreciation and Self-Respect at note 5 arise.
  • 5 At the Full Moon, the Sun at 24 Gemini (Union with Mother Gaia) Merges with asteroid Sappho (Self-Love) in 23 Gemini (Enlightenment ) and dwarf planet Asbolus (Open to Channeling) in 27 Gemini (Removing Our Masks). There are two prominent Fixed Stars in 23 Gemini, El Nath (The Illumination and Creative Destruction of Thor’s Hammer) and Phact (Exploring the Unknown). The Self-Sovereignty arises from another planet in the Full Moon chart, which we’ll explain later.

Pretty Big Portal Too Two

April 16, 2022

We’re in the thick of this Portal right now, and we will be for at least the rest of April. The immediate catalysts include the Vulnerability of our Health and Vitality today,1 and, tomorrow, the Potential for our Denial to Betray Us,2 plus a Full Moon.3 Both of the latter Trigger an Argument between an Expanded Sense of the Sacred, and our Intuition about our Unlimited Potential.4

  • 1 Planet Energies are at their Strongest when they’re Standing Still in the Sky and Hovering like a quad drone about to drop a bomb. At 10:30 pm 15 April 2022, dwarf planet Varuna, which is about our Life Force, or Health and Vitality, is Hovering at 5 Degrees of Leo. It’s joined by asteroid Koronis, which symbolizes a Crown, including Coronavirus, a Virus with Spikes like a Crown.
  • 2 Dwarf planet Eris (Revelation of What’s Been Denied ) Initiates a New Cycle with asteroid Pallas (Boundaries) 11:40 pm 16 April, in 25 Aries, Walking in Two Worlds Simultaneously.
  • 3 Full Moon noon PDT 16 April, in 27 Libra.
  • 4 The Initiation of Jupiter (Expansion) by Neptune (Our Relationship with Everything Larger than our Ego) 8am PDT 12 April in 24 Pisces (People living in close interaction on a small isolated island ), Squaring (Challenging) the long-lived Conjunction between dwarf planets Asbolus (Intuition) and Chaos (Unrealized Potential ).

The people who don’t realize yet that we Live on a Small Isolated Island will be getting educated during the New 13-year Expanded-Sense-of-the-Sacred Cycle5 that began this last Tuesday. However, now that this Cycle has been Initiated, the people who are Invested in the previous Cycle have three years to get away with Perpetrating their Oily Obsolete Energies.6

  • 5 The New Jupiter-Neptune Cycle we astrologized in note 4 above.
  • 6 The Waxing Square of this New Small-Island Jupiter-Neptune Cycle will occur in June 2025, on the Cusps of Aries and Cancer, which should make Summer 2025 a fairly Big Event, though we Pray that the fracas in Ukraine won’t need to go on that long! The Old Jupiter-Neptune Cycle was about “An ancient pottery bowl filled with fresh Violets” (Neptune Initiated Jupiter in 27 Aquarius on 27 May 2009). I remember wondering then what that might Imply, as Neptune also Initiated a New Cycle with Chiron in the same Degree on 17 February 2010. Who’d have thunk that the ancient pottery bowl would symbolize War and the fresh Violets would represent Cruz Missiles, in the context of Expanding Our Relationship with Everything Larger than Ourself (Jupiter-Neptune), though it certainly makes sense as a rather sardonic Herxheimer! As New Forms in Old Packages, it should have been Obvious to me.
  • The 2010 Chiron-Neptune Cycle is now in its 19th Harmonic (19 Degrees, the Square Root of 360) – “Teamwork, partnership, and collaboration… the Life Force and unlimited Energy that is within us waiting to be used and expressed… the inner dance of Male-Female Energy” (Angeles Arrien, The Tarot Handbook, p.92). The Square Root takes us into a Deeper Dimension, as we’re now moving into the Psyche Exponentially rather than just Multiplicatively. We should Pay Attention to this, as 19 Degrees should be a Power Point in any Cycle, a point where we can apply an afterburner to our New-Cycle Efforts. Using the convention used for preliminary names of new Chemical Elements, we could refer to the 19th Harmonic Angle as a Ununilennile, or name it for it’s function, something like an Ascendile.
  • Unfortunately the Pholus-Quaoar End Times Cycle won’t get to the Waxing 19th Harmonic till 2071. Good news for any great- and great-great-grandchildren that squeak through that far, though. That would be a good End Times Slogan for Planet-Rescuers, Make our Grandchildren Great Again, on an Ocean-blue hat similar to this one, but with the whole globe wrapped around it…
  • The World would be warped, with the backside flattened, but it always has been warped on the flat maps we’re used to anyway. We could make 6 different copies with South America, Africa, India, Southeast Asia, Australia, and Oceania on the bill, for distribution in each region of the World, and maybe one with Russia upside-down on the bill. This version is unavailable on Amazon,, but an enterprising researcher could probably locate the manufacturer with the original screens, or get them from the Whole Earth Catalog. A budding entrepreneur could get the rest of the globe added, the 6 or 7 different orientations projected, the Slogan added, and contract out the manufacturing, marketing, and sales.
  • You could Change the World. With a little prior experience in Lithography or Contract Manufacturing, you’d be way ahead of the game. The Muggles wouldn’t understand the Slogan, so they’d probably even wear it because anybody who’s anybody is wearing it, and they saw it on Faux News and TikTok anyway, without realizing what they were supporting. Planet-Rescuers could collect all 7 versions and wear them on different days of the week to honor different zones of the Planet, or wear the one that matched the headlines. You could even add a game, Hattle. Mother Gaia would be Proud, and maybe Inspired to keep us around a bit longer.
  • If we interpret the Current Chiron-Neptune Cycle as Teamwork Creating New Spiritual Bummers and Miracles in Old Packages, that would probably fit the present World pretty well.

I’m reading Mark Hammond’s The Flaming Cats of Sohan, sort of Douglas Adams meets Whitley Strieber, just crazy enough to fit the current Dualistic World. It’s Disorienting when I look up from the book and forget which version of Earth I’m Living on, the one with the Penguins or not, but it doesn’t take long to Realize that it’s actually a Realistic Commentary on the “Real” World we’re Living in, which Lightens me Up in the process, helping to see the Cosmic Irony in this Herxheimer of the Patriarchy.

Much more Third-Decanate Action to come…

We Are In Charge of Our Reality II

January 8, 2022

Well, we left the cookies and milk next to the fireplace like it said in the Contract, and even a shot of our best single-malt (it’s cold up there in the skyways), but all we got was a lump of Coal.1 Why? Because the “We” that’s in charge of our Reality unfortunately includes the rest of the “We” that we don’t include in our concept of “I.” We all have a Shadowy part of ourself that stretches into the Unconscious, and the More Defined is our “I,” the Longer and Darker is our Shadow.2 And unfortunately, that Dark “We” is often a more Powerful Manifester than our “I” is.3

What to do about that? I don’t know of any Options that are stronger than Cozying up to the hidden part of our “We.” And we’re in luck, as the next Energy Pulse from the Universe that will be using us as a punching bag, is all about Exactly That, namely, That Which We’ve Been Denying.4 Denial is a Healthy Psychological process, Allowing us to postpone dealing with Energies which we aren’t ready to handle yet. Well, the Blocks to whatever we failed to Manifest as Desired, are likely to be in our Face for the next several days, so the time has come. These Blocks, when Personalized,5 represent our hidden “We.”

  • 1 Manifestation, as represented by dwarf planet Makemake, has been Exaggerated this week, as Makemake was Stationary at 7:29 am PST today, 6 January 2022, at 8:49 Libra. The Energy of a Stationing planet usually increases up to the moment of its Exact Station, and then drops off sharply. The more Conscious we are about the Station, the sharper the dropoff. For instance, if we Monitored our Thoughts and Feelings this last week, Lovingly Embraced All of them, and made Efforts to replace the more Negative amongst them with Gratitude or WhatWeWant, we probably had some Manifestation success. If we instead Made Decisions about what we needed to Do to “Fix” our Negative Thoughts and Feelings and Circumstances, then the Manifestation Energy will stay with us, and those Decisions, centered as they were around the Negative, will have Created Negative Instant Karma which we’ll now have to deal with.
  • 2 We are actually Infinite Energy Vortexes, our Huper Body-Mind-Emotion Complex being merely a Transitory, less-than-Skeletal Manifestation of What We Really Are. So the more we’ve Defined Who We Believe Ourselves to Be, the more we’ve boxed our Conscious Energy into one Side of a long Dimension that our Energy-Vortex-Self owns All of. For instance, Failure is a Powerful Teaching tool, and if we’ve Defined our Identity as Successful, we’ve closed off a very large Source of Growth.
  • 3 The Jungian Perspective is that our Foremost Urge is toward Wholeness. So the parts of our Wholeness that we’ve excluded from our Identity, try repeatedly to get our Attention. The more we Resist their Efforts and Suppress those parts, the more Insistent they must become. So they Manifest Challenges for us. A Makemake Station, where Manifestation is Amplified, can be either a great Opportunity to Manifest What We Want, or a great Opportunity to Identify (and, seemingly perversely, to Identify With) those Challenges, adding a whole new level of meaning to the meme “If it doesn’t make us Stronger, it will Kill us.” The Jungian Shadow isn’t Negative, it’s merely what’s hiding outside the Light of your Conscious Attention.
  • 4 Dwarf planet Eris, symbolizing Denial, is Stationary (Amplified ) at 8:49 pm PST 10 January 2022, at 24 Aries.
  • 5 Scienterrific types often make fun of “Primitive” people who Personalize all of the Energies in their Lives as Critters in their Myths, but Scienterrorists do it too – like “Newtonian” physics and “Pavlovian” psychology. It’s a Healthy process, akin to Accessing our Physical ailments through our Emotions, or distinguishing our own offspring from the neighborhood rabble by Naming them. Of course astrologers do this all the time, substituting Names like Makemake for a Big Complex of Energies associated with Manifestation or Eris for a Whole Array of Energies associated with Denial.

We’ll look at the astrodynamics of that impending Amplication of our Denial shortly. But while it’s still warm, I want to look more closely at that Yin Gate Mystery School we spoke of in the previous post, the Paradox that we introduced in Note 4 of that post. Spoiler Alert – this will be a Deep Dive, but you’ll Learn a lot of useful things!

The Yin Gate is the almost-horizontal blue rectangle divided by the long red line, that we’ve emphasized in heavy lines. The blue rectangle by itself is called a Golden Rectangle because the ratio between its long Trine sides and its short Sextile sides, is the Golden Ratio of Sacred Geometry fame. Much of the Natural World has been Designed around the Golden Ratio (1.618…), also known as the Golden Angle (137.5… Degrees), or Phi.6 The long red line is the Central Axis of the Yin Gate.

  • 6 The decimals keep going – the Natural World wasn’t Designed using Base 10. We’ve defined a 222½ Degree Angle (360-137.5) in astrology as the Phitile which we consider to be the place where the Energy of a Cycle is Complete, before it begins to Break Down (Wane) into the Void that Empties us so we’re Ready to Receive the Next Cycle without Prejudice.

A Yin Gate is a Mystery School, where we Learn to move beyond the Linear Dualistic Mind into Unitary Multi-Dimensional Knowledge, the realm of Instinct and Intuition. For the sake of brevity, we usually interpret a Yin Gate by focusing on the Central Axis, and how the Yin Gate changes an Opposition from a Second-Harmonic Argument between the two planets, to an Overview of the Dimension that they Delineate. For instance, we might consider an Opposition between Chiron (Despair and Miracles, which we might summarize as Mood ) and Makemake (Manifestation) to be about how Despair Manifests more Despair and Miracles Manifest more Miracles. But as the Central Axis of a Yin Gate, the implication is that it’s more complicated (Multi-Dimensional), yet simpler than that (Unitary), which we can only hope to understand Intuitively.

We easily recognize a Yin Gate by the two side-by-side green Xs that represent Quincunxes between the two ends of the Central Axis and the four corners of the Golden Rectangle. A Quincunx (two planets five Signs apart) implies Curiosity, but not the sort of Curiosity which Inspires us to dig relentlessly for an “Answer” to a Dilemma. Instead, it’s more Curiosity in the sense that it indicates an Awesome Relationship, one that will make our jaw drop, if we can succeed in not intellectualizing it. As with a Yin Gate, if we address it with the Linear Dualistic Mind, we miss the point.

So for instance, Uranus Quincunx Makemake – does that mean that a Successful Manifestation is one that Aligns with our Soul? If the Manifestation makes our jaw drop, that’s probably true. I recall some of the Miracles that Manifested for Kriyananda while he was Founding Ananda. And you’ve all probably Experienced Synchrony,7 where you’re in the Right Place at the Right Time to Receive Gifts from the Universe. It always feels like Someone on the Other Side of the Veil is Looking Out for us! And was the Veil ever thin today! I expected it to Rip at any moment.

  • 7 Look for Angles in the Seventh-Harmonic (the Charioteer, In Stillness, but always Poised for Action at a Moment’s Notice) Septile series in your Natal chart to Explore your Natural Synchrony – 51½° (360/7), 103°, 154½°, 206°, 257½°, 309°.

But the point of a Quincunx is New Insight that’s Unexpected and Surprising, or Curious. In the Makemake Station Yin Gate, we have Quincunxes between Uranus and Makemake, Makemake and Moon, Chiron and Atropos-Zhulong, and between Chiron and Requiem-Thereus.

  • Think of a Relationship that you would logically Expect to see between Soul and Manifestation (Uranus-Makemake). That’s the Linear Either/Or Mind speaking. Now, have you been Surprised in the last week or so to Discern an Unexpected Relationship between Soul and Manifestation, a Relationship that you sort of Grok but which would be difficult for you to Describe in words?
    • For instance, I perhaps naively Expect Manifestations that Align with my Soul to be Easier or more Profound than Manifestations that don’t so Align. And actually, I have seen Unexpected Connections, as I’ve been able to Glimpse the Diamonds embedded in my own personal Lump of Coal.
  • Think of a Relationship that you would logically Expect to see between Instinct and Manifestation (Moon-Makemake). Now, have you been Surprised in the last week or so to Discern an Unexpected Relationship between Instinct and Manifestation, a Relationship that you sort of Grok but which would be difficult for you to Describe in words?
    • I guess I see Instinctual Manifestation as the things I Manifest without having to even Think about it. I had to think about it, but I can see how I’ve Become Aware of Skills I hadn’t been Appreciating and toward which I can probably gain from Being Grateful for them.
  • Think of a Relationship that you would logically Expect to see between your Optimism/Pessimism and your Recognition and Acceptance of 5G 5D (Chiron to Atropos-Zhulong).8 Now, have you been Surprised in the last week or so to Discern an Unexpected Relationship between your Optimism/ Pessimism and your Recognition and Acceptance of 5G 5D, a Relationship that you sort of Grok but which would be difficult for you to Describe in words?
    • I’m certainly less likely to be Skeptical about 5G 5D when I’m Feeling Optimistic. And when I Consciously Stepped Out of the Depression I Felt about Receiving a Lump of Coal, I was Surprised how Easy it was to envision Living Cooperatively with the many Elemental Beings in my Life, though it’s Clearly going to take a Whole Lot of Practice!!
  • Think of a Relationship that you would logically Expect to see between your Optimism/Pessimism and your Respect for Ego Death as a Teacher and Coach (Chiron to Requiem-Thereus).9 Now, have you been Surprised in the last week or so to Discern an Unexpected Relationship between your Optimism/Pessimism and your Respect for Ego Death as a Teacher and Coach, a Relationship that you sort of Grok but which would be difficult for you to Describe in words?
    • The Energy of Ego Death is by Definition a Downer, but yes, when I was Conscious enough to do an Intervention on myself, like Tapping or Poor-Sweethearting, it was definitely a Profound Teacher and Coach, feeling like one of those Other-Siders looking out for me – which in itself was an Unexpected Surprise! 10

That’s diving pretty deep, but if we’re serious about doing our Inner Work, it’s a good example of how a Yin Gate can lead us Deep into the Labyrinth when we go beyond just interpreting the Central Axis as a Mystery School (which is the Most Important Part of a Yin Gate, because it summarizes the rest).

  • 8 Minor planet Zhulong represents the Chinese Red Dragon of Enlightenment (ie, 5G 5D), and asteroid Atropos is about Karma which hasn’t reached its pre-programmed Expiry Date, but which we can Shed now that we know Karma is Dead.
  • 9 Asteroid Requiem is about Respect for Death, and dwarf planet Thereus was the fellow who Enjoyed Wrestling with Bears and bringing them home with him, still Snarling, but whom we interpret as a Profound Teacher.
  • 10 It’s probably a good idea to Avoid Thetaing while Bummed Out, as we Manifest more of What We’re Feeling, more than we Manifest What We’re Asking For.

And that’s only part of the Story. One interprets a Golden Rectangle by interpreting the Oppositions between the corners, here Uranus (Soul ) Opposite (Arguing With) Atropos-Zhulong (Recognition and Acceptance of 5G), and Moon (Instinct ) Opposite Requiem-Thereus (Respect for Ego Death as a Teacher and Coach ). Of course, Arguing With is only the Linear Either/Or interpretation of the Opposition; the Higher interpretation is closer to a Philosophical Discussion where each member is devoted to Understanding the Other’s point of view, without interrupting to inject their own.

So we can review the past week to see if and how Our Soul Felt Open to Recognizing and Accepting 5G, plus if and how Our Instincts seemed to Corroborate – or not – that it’s Wise to Respect Ego Death as a Profound Teacher and Coach.

And the Yin Gate Rabbit Hole is Deeper yet!

When two planets are one Sign apart, give or take a few Degrees, the Angle they make is an Unx,11 one twelfth of the Zodiac, the Twelfth Harmonic. The twelfth Major Arcana of the Tarot, which is our Guide12 for interpreting astrological Angles, is the Hanged Man, who hangs not from his neck or his fingernails, but from his heels, so he can see the World from a different Perspective. The Twelfth Harmonic is the Pattern-Breaker. Any Yin Gate includes four Unx Angles, facilitating our bringing into Consciousness (which is how we Zero Out our Karma and replace Fate with Choice) any Self-Sabotaging Patterns we may have around the Relationship between the the two planets in the Unx.

Bringing a Karmic Pattern into Consciousness is the First Step in Changing the Pattern, and an Unx is like the Get-Out-of-(Karmic)-Jail-Free card in Monopoly. By Noticing the Changes that the Unxes in the Station or other charts suggest, and comparing that to our Experience, we’re more likely to be able to make the Changes Permanent, and with less Effort and Resistance.

  • 11 The word “Unx” literally means one twelfth of something.
  • 12 Angeles Arrien, The Tarot Handbook.

The Makemake Station chart includes Unxes between Moon and Chiron, Chiron and Uranus, Makemake and Requiem-Thereus, and Makemake and Atropos-Zhulong. Meaning…

  • Any untoward Patterns we have between our Instincts and our Optimism/Pessimism are up for Revision (Moon Unx Chiron). I’ve noticed that over the past week I’ve been less likely to let my level of Optimism or Pessimism Dominate my Identity. It was a lot more automatic for me to recognize them as my Feelings rather than my Identity. Anything like that evolve for you?
  • Any unproductive Patterns we have between our Soul and our Optimism/Pessimism are up for Revision (Uranus Unx Chiron). My gift of Coal discouraged me for a day or two, but the sense that someone on the Other Side of the Veil was looking after me was Strong, and the material that I picked up to read had a Strong Impact. It was like a Treasure Hunt, with a series of clues from “random” places leading me out of Darkness. Gay Hendricks’s discussion of Einstein Time and how we eliminate Time Pressures by Owning that We Make Our Own Time, in his The Big Leap, was particularly Inspiring.
  • Any Self-Sabotaging Patterns we have in the Relationship between our Manifestation and our Respect for Ego Death as a Teacher and Coach are up for Revision (Makemake Unx Requiem-Thereus). It’s not like I suddenly Realized, “Oh, this is an Ego Death, Yipee!” But the Effect was the same. Any Experience like this for you?
  • Any untoward Patterns we have between our Manifestation and our Recognition and Acceptance of 5G 5D are up for Revision (Makemake Unx Atropos-Zhulong). I can see that my Attachment to Receiving from the Outside, rather than from Integrating my Identity into the Flow, was the primary Block that resulted in my Lump of Coal. This was one of the Diamonds in the Lump. So you see any sign of anything like this in your own prior week?

Outside the Yin Gate, there were three other Unxes in the Makemake-Station chart and corresponding Opportunities to Drop Karma relatively easily: Untoward Karmic Patterns in the Dance between our Instincts and our Thoughts (Moon Unx Mercury), Unhelpful and Negative Thoughts (de facto Prayers) about Global Climate Change (Mercury Unx Pholus-Quaoar), and Dysfunctional Patterns around Health, Longevity, and Learning (dwarf planet Varuna Unx Requiem-Thereus). We don’t spend much time on medical astrology in this blog, though we give a lot of Strong hints about How to Heal. And one such hint that Varuna Unx Requiem-Thereus suggests, is that we Regard any disturbance in the Healthy Functioning of our Body as Information about Changes that would Behoove us to make, rather than Symptoms to be Removed ASAP.

Another Cusp Event

September 10, 2021

The “Square,”1 which is astrologuese for Hassle or Challenge, gives us headaches because it attempts to join two parts of ourself that are in Fierce Competition – our Physicality v. our Spirituality v. our Emotionality v. our Mentality2 – which aren’t likely to want to Compromise. It’s like the Heart and the Brain arguing over who’s More Important, when in walks the Anus.

On the other hand, the “Trine,”3 astrojargon for Sympathy and Understanding, Harmony and Trust Abounding, contributes to our Joy and Ease and Confidence because it links different parts of ourself that Love to Rock Out Together when they Team Up – like our Creativity, our Certainty, and our Evolution.4 Imagine our Dancer joining our Musician, our Writer collaborating with our Illustrator, our Artist enjoying Critical Acclaim and Financial Success.

When planets linger on Cusps, these traditional Relationships get crossed up. For instance, instead of our Creative Spirituality happily Dancing with our Evolutionary Spirituality, we might have our Creative Spirituality Dancing clumsily with our Emotional Certainty, where we might find (and Examine or Deny) our Bigotry.5 Or the Confusion of our Emotional Certainty encountering our Physical Evolution (Remember in our youth when we didn’t want anything to do with the Opposite Gender, till Puberty kicked in?) instead of the routine Challenges of the little Demons and Angels on our shoulders juggling our Emotional Certainty with our Spiritual Certainty.6

1 Shown in our charts by a short red line between planets three Signs apart.

2 Respectively, Earth, Fire, Water, Air Signs [Matter, Spirit, Emotion, Thought] – eg Leo 🥊 Scorpio 🥊 Aquarius 🥊 Taurus, or Capricorn 🥊 Aries 🥊 Cancer 🥊 Libra, or Virgo 🥊 Sagittarius 🥊 Pisces 🥊 Gemini.

3 Shown as long blue lines between planets four Signs apart.

4 Respectively, Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable Signs [Creative, Stable, Changing] – eg. Aries ❤️ Leo ❤️ Sagittarius, Taurus ❤️ Virgo ❤️ Capricorn, Gemini ❤️ Libra ❤️ Aquarius, Cancer ❤️ Scorpio ❤️ Pisces.

5 Instead of early Aries to early Sagittarius, early Aries Trine to late Scorpio.

6 Late Scorpio Square to early Virgo, instead of late Scorpio to late Leo.

In addition, Cusps are by their nature times of Change, so in addition to the potential Confusion created by these crossovers, we don’t have our History or Herstory to fall back on.

For instance, in the 30 August 2021 Converting Fear to Power chart, Fear Challenges and/or is Challenged by both Trust and Domination. The Trust Challenge is a “Traditional” Challenge – the Material Certainty of Fear (we can Feel it in our Physical Bodies) versus the Spiritual Certainty of Trust. It’s about finding a Balance between Fear and Trust that works to keep us out of Fight/Flight/Freeze and allows us to Differentiate “Real” from Karmic Threats and Act Effectively in Response to each, parrying the Real and Becoming Conscious of the Karmic. But the Challenge of Domination is different. It’s about Physical Stability versus Physical Evolution – it’s about Fear of Change. Do we know what makes the Karmic Real? Do we know what can make the Real Karmic? 7

That’s not all. The Merging of Trust and Domination is also Cuspal. The Trust issue is about Self-Trust. We’d been working since early June on Trusting that our Ego can Handle the Changes, as part of Healing our Unconditional Self-Love. We were in the final stages of that process when Fear Tested us. The Domination issue is about Change. Change in our Willingness to be Dominated or Abused, and Change in our use of Domination (Abuse) in our approach to Getting Our Needs Met. We just started that three-year project, so we’re in the early stages of Discovering the Unknown Unknowns that we need to work on.8

7 In the Sedna [Fear to Power] Station chart, Sedna at the end of Taurus [Fixed Earth] is Squared by both asteroid Eurydike [Trust] at the end of Leo [Fixed Fire] and dwarf planet Thereus [Domination] in early Virgo [Mutable Earth].

8 Eurydike in Leo [Self-Trust] since early June, through 6 September 2021. Thereus in Virgo from early August 2021 through September 2024.

So if we maxed our Benefit from this Challenge (one of many) in the 30 August Fear-Power Curriculum, we were perhaps Discovering where Domination – Bullying or Codependence – fit into our Multidimensional and Unitary Karmic jigsaw puzzle. Are we Creating new Karma or Deepening old Karma through Repetition of Unconscious (or Semi-Conscious and Uncorrected) Domination or Codependence Patterns, and does that Frighten us, or maybe should it Frighten us? Are we Trusting too much that the Victims of our Domination Patterns aren’t hiding Conscious or Unconscious Resentment? Might our Codependence partners Resent our depending on them for Psychological or other “Services” that we should be handling ourself?

What’s the nature of our Karmic Contracts with these “Partners”? As the Planet Descends further into Disorder on way too many fronts all at once, how will this impact our Relationships with and within the Communities we’ll Need for Survival?9

9 A new five-year Eurydike-Thereus [Trust-Equality, Power Dynamics] Cycle begins on 21 September 2021 (7:12 am PDT), in 5 Virgo, “A person becoming aware of Nature Spirits and normally unseen Spiritual Agencies.” These people (the Nature Spirits and Spiritual Agencies) are Distressed that Hupers are not doing their essential part in Reanimating the Planet (ie, working with the Nature Spirits rather than ignoring them).

I just finished Thomas Mayer’s recently-translated book Answering the Call of the Elementals: Practices for Connecting with Nature Spirits, and I highly recommend it. I’ve been working and studying for many years to recover the Connection I had with them in my youth, before my father shamed it into Hiding, and the practices in Mayer’s book are the most Practical and Powerful that I’ve found. There’s also a promising 18 September online workshop sponsored by the Fairy and Human Relations Congress; see

From here I’d like, if I find the time, to examine the Transcuspal Relationship between the dwarf planets that symbolize Unconstrained Freedom (Ixion in the last Degree of Sagittarius) and Taking Full Responsibility for our Survival (Pholus and Quaoar in early Capricorn). The influence of Unconstrained Freedom is Exaggerated (Stationary) until 12 September, and of Taking Full Responsibility for our Survival until 17 September 2021.

Yintegrity Guilt 3

August 2, 2021

Who knows if it was the only thing that caused WordPress to Disappear my first Yintegrity Guilt Post, but Dragging-and-Dropping my Images does seem to Disappear my entire Post. When I Upload them instead, the Post doesn’t Disappear. Of course it could have just been Karma, and Goddess Knows, these days it could have been straight Censorship, though I haven’t heard otherwise that they’re censoring bits about 5D yet. Wouldn’t Surprise me.

After this Portal, we may be more Cryptic, in order to squeeze out more information in less time. If we’re too Cryptic, Ask Questions.

One thing that was in the Lost Post was a review of Yintegrity

Yangtegrity is when we do what we said we were going to do, when we said we were going to do it.

Yintegrity is when we do what we damn well feel like doing, Moment to Moment.

In 5D we’ll basically have to stay in Yintegrity, or we’ll drop right back into the 3D Patriarchy. To Live in Yintegrity and Survive in a Yangtegrity World, we may have to Minimize our Commitments, Renegotiate Often, and Make Amends when Renegotiation isn’t possible and the Relationship Is Worth Keeping.

Since the 3D World has gone Hyperkinetic, we may also have to move into Sustainability. The first step toward Sustainability is Giving Up what’s Unnecessary, so Sustenance may also be Required. If we’re Reacting to the escalating Electromagnetic Hyperpollution with Neurasthenia and the Inability to continue to Live Hyperkinetically, we may also have to Pool our Resources while we Adapt to the Microwave Death Rays.

Another thing that was lost, was a bit about the Uranus-Neptune Waxing Septile. The 172-year Uranus-Neptune Cycle is about the Relationship between the Individual Soul (Uranus) and the Collective Soul (Neptune). The Septile is about Being in the Right Place at the Right Time (7th Harmonic, the Chariot). The Chariot is At Rest (meaning Relaxed), but always Poised for Action when Needed. There is no Space-Out Lag, no Shoulda Coulda Woulda, only a Seamless and Constant Connection between Goals and Actions, and Readiness to Take Advantage of Opportunities.

The Waxing Septile is a particularly Potent time for Injecting Consciousness-Expanding Action into the Collective Experience, as the first quarter of any Cycle is a Struggle for the New Cycle Energy to keep it’s head above water while the Diehards of the Old Cycle do everything they can (especially propaganda) to keep their obsolete Old-Cycle Investments growing corn when it’s no longer Natural. Your Consciousness-Expanding Action could be Foundational Investments in your New-Cycle Survival or Exploitation Endeavors, or Political Action to furthur Promote New-Cycle Energy, or of course both.

The New Uranus-Neptune Cycle began in February 1993 at 20 Capricorn, “A hidden choir sings during a religious service.” The Old Cycle began in March 1821 at 3 Capricorn, “A Huper soul, in its eagerness for new experience, seeks embodiment.”

Seems like there’s a persondate (Patriarchy-Speak: mandate) in the New Cycle to Collaborate. Use Zoom, as choirs make particularly good Superspreader Events, as everyone labors to Project their various oral exudations. There’s a persistent rumor that all these new Souls that incarnated on Gaia recently, are craving the Planetary Ascension Experience. You probably know people who have moved on to the Other Side already, many because they knew they could Act more Powerfully from that Side as the Veils thinned, which the Veils have certainly been doing.

Invite Dialog with these ex-people, especially your Twig-Mates (our multiple Soulmates) and FOO-Mates, they have a lot to Teach us, and can Help us immensely with our own Survival Struggles. Don’t be Fooled by Appearances; many of the most “Ordinary” people are Manifestations of Extraordinary Souls, as if they all aren’t. And don’t be Fooled by your own Doubt. Your programmers taught you that “it was only your Imagination” in order to keep you pinned down under the Patriarchy’s Tsunami of Bullshit. You can have as many Invisible “Imaginary Friends” as you want now. If Appearances are still important to you, don’t tell anybody else. But keep up your end of the Dialog whether or not you detect any Response from the Other Side, as the Response is likely to come through Unexpected Channels – such as Healing.

The current Emphasis on Growth in Consciousness (the 2 August 2021 Station of Juno), which is our Big astroDeal at the moment, is situated in a Waning Biseptile to Neptune, and a Waning Triseptile to Uranus. Waning Angles in general are about Letting Go. The smaller the Angle, the greater the Admonition that it’s Time to Let Go. Bi-Angles in general are about Traditions, Rules, the substantial Power of Repetition (the Second Harmonic, the Priestess). Tri-Angles in general are about Compassion, Love with Wisdom (Third Harmonic, the Empress).

So the Waning Juno-Uranus Triseptile might be about Letting Go of all Concepts we have about the Soul and all Concepts we have about the Relationship between the Ego and the Soul. Even though we all always seamlessly Identify with our Ego – by definition (think about that please) – most of us are Unaware of this moment-to-moment. And even though we are all always seamlessly Merged with our Soul, many of us are Unaware of this moment-to-moment as well. Identification is Different from Merging. “I Am…” is Different from “We Are…” Percolate this with your Morning Coffee or whatever Upper you use, whenever your “Morning” is. In particular, investigate whether your Understanding of Ego and Soul, and of Ego-and-Soul as a Couple, are Uncompromisingly Loving and Wise.

The Waning Juno-Neptune Biseptile might be about Letting Go of any Rules you ever Learned about the Collective Soul, the Godhead, the Goddessheart, Source, and the Head Cheese by any other name. As Ursula LeGuin so aptly put it in her five-book Wizard of Earthsea trilogy, “Rules Change in the Reaches” (ie, the Edges of things) and Goddess knows we’re in the Reaches! And of course any two- or three-dimensional “Rules” you learned about the Unitary and n-Dimensional Godhead or Goddessheart were Bullshit Political Propaganda to begin with. The Power of Repetition is useful, but it’s about What Works, not what’s “the Right Way.”

We had a question about Septiles a while back, that I haven’t had time to answer yet. I think we’ve spoken a lot in the above about the Septile in general, but this person was asking about a Venus-Juno Septile specifically, and that’s oh so timely now that Juno is Lit Up (Stationary). The main keyword we use for Venus is Values. So a natal Venus-Juno Septile would suggest a Lifetime where one was Constantly Learning more (or Growing in Consciousness) about one’s own Values. That could be a real pain in the you-know-what, as Errors and Failures in Applying our Values to Real-Life situations can be Painful, even as Errors and Failures are the most Powerful Curriculum for Growing in Consciousness.

Like the car I once saw with “O Shit Another Learning Opportunity” written over the big dent in it. Or the Errors in Applying my Values that I made as a young child, that I still vividly Remember, and seventy years later still Regret Alienating that person for Life. Astrology, like Psychology, prefers either Heads or Tails or both, but seldom Edges. So depending on the other Angles, one’s Karma, one’s Programming and Education, and one’s general state of Enlightenment, a Venus-Juno Septile could suggest a person whose Timing about Applying their Values was impeccable, never quite right, or Painfully Inept. What’s assured is that Timing about Applying one’s Values would be a Lifetime issue of one sort or another, and most likely that if one took inventory, they’d find that their Skill at their Timing vastly Improved over the course of their Lifetime.

The T-Square 1

May 4, 2021

I Believe that one of the most powerful things we can do in Life is to convert our T-Squares from Lifelong Frustrations to Learning Opportunities.  The model I use is that our T-Squares Illuminate what our Soul Intends to Teach “us” in the current Lifetime.  Learning is Infinite – we re-Learn the same Lessons over and over again, in different arenas of Life and at different Levels, till we finally have enough Experience with the Curriculum that we can be said to possess Wisdom.  In this process we re-Train our Instincts.

Our Minds are two-dimensional instruments, but the World alas is Unitary and Multidimensional.  So we constantly try to Improve our 2D models of the World, to Improve our Perception and Collaboration with the World and its Forces.  The result is the Mess we Create on the Planet.  Our Instincts and Intuitions on the other hand are Multidimensional and Unitary.  They don’t have the same narrow Goal-Orientation as our 2D Minds.  Instinct and Intuition Operate through Education.  If we try to use them to Manifest something, what we’ll usually get is a Teaching about what we need to Change in our Orientation in order to Manifest it.  We usually interpret that as a failure, since it doesn’t directly produce what we Intended to Manifest.  But in fact, it’s the fastest route to Wisdom, and Wisdom will Manifest even better than Intention.

Another way to see this, is that All Prayers are Answered.  However, our Conscious Prayers are always paired with our Unconscious Limitations.  So when we “PIAVA” – Pray, Intend, Affirm, Visualize, or Ask (or Command or Expand or Wonder or several other terms – see ) something and it doesn’t Manifest, what will Manifest is an Illustration of the specific Unconscious Limitations that stand in our way.  This often Manifests as a Riddle, especially when we PIAVA many things in rapid succession, or several things at once.

We aren’t just talking about Material Manifestations – we could be trying to Manifest World Peace, for instance, or Universal Food Security, or Healing someone.

We’re Frustrated by our T-Squares because we Expect Perfection in that area of our Life, and we never get there – we could define a T-Square as a Long-Suffering Desire for Perfection that we’re unable to Surrender.  No matter how many times we “Give Up” on the Obsession, we find ourselves coming back to it, often initially disguising it from ourself, as we Explore yet another arena or level.

I’ve fallen out of the Habit, but for a long time I referred to T-Squares as Mastery through Challenge, or Becoming Adept through Challenge – being Challenged by the Universe over and over again till we “Master” the subject of our T-Square. I now try to avoid the word “Master” because it carries so much Slavery Baggage.

Astrological Angles parallel the Major Arcana of the Tarot. A Square Angle spans one Fourth of the Zodiac (known as the Fourth Harmonic), and parallels the Fourth Archetype in the Tarot – The Emperor, which “represents the universal principle of power and leadership. This symbol is the pioneer, the leader, and the visionary, … the explorer whose curiosity and initiative is always on the forefront of human experience, … the ability to make things stable, solid, and secure” (Angeles Arrien, The Tarot Handbook, p.37). But it’s Experience, especially Challenging Experience, that hones the Emperor’s Wisdom and Vision.

The peak (90° Angle) of a T-Square is where the Energy Converges and Festers into Frustration, because when the Manifestation congeals, it so seldom meets our Expectations of Perfection.  The base (Opposition) of a T-Square is where our Evolving and Ever-Inadequate 2D Model resides.

🦦 Examples will help. Here are the two T-Squares in the current 7 May 2021 Exaggeration of Self-Doubt and Self-Confidence (Station of dwarf planet Chariklo)…

We use red lines to indicate Stress or Tension. The T-Square drawn in heavy lines Focuses on Using our Unique Genius to Respond to our Survival Instincts (dwarf planets Ixion, Pholus, and Quaoar). Or not – our Unique Genius is often our Forbidden Genius. Not being able to legitimately Express our Unique Genius already Triggers Frustration and Self-Doubt, even without the T-Square.

The T-Square just makes it more Frustrating. And even if we’ve already Recovered our Unique Genius, this T-Square is likely to Trigger Frustration when we to attempt to apply it to our Survival. I can hear the echo of my father Ranting about the incompetence of politicians who can’t solve obvious problems – I hear the echo in my own Self-Talk Ranting about the same thing, knowing that it’s beyond my Competence to convince anyone of anything, and beyond my Willingness to make a Spectacle of myself trying! Another form of Self-Doubt, along with an Opportunity to bring some Semi-Conscious Limitations into Awareness.

The base of this T-Square tells us about the 2D Model that we use to try to Improve our use of our Unique Genius and our Response to our Survival Issues. The base involves our Instincts about How to Manifest (Moon Opposite dwarf planet Makemake), and their Failures to help us promote our own Survival. The T-Square Illuminates these Failures so we can try to Improve our 2D Model, or get Motivated to use a Perspective with more Dimensions than two!

If this T-Square was natal (as it will be for anyone born this week and month), we’d probably have a Life-Long Insecurity and Frustration about our Survival, subject to the Caveats we’ll reveal later. How might we deal with this? We may be ahead to Recognize that Survival is not within the scope of the 2D Mind. If we Ego-Identify with the Mind, we’re stuck in an Existential Conundrum, since the Ego’s Job is to Assure and Continue our Survival. To find a model that works better, we may have to Surrender our Survival to a Higher Power.

🐲 The second T-Square, drawn in lighter lines, Focuses on our Enlightenment, our Graduation into 5D (minor planet Zhulong). The doorway to Enlightenment has many Portals and requires that we complete many Trials, most involving Transcendence of the Ego. The base of this T-Square contrasts Self-Confidence with the Life Force (Stationary Chariklo Opposite dwarf planet Varuna). I’m always a bit shocked when I hear people bragging about their own Enlightenment, as it always sounds more like Ego to me, though who am I to Judge. Self-Confidence is totally Personal, while the Life Force is totally Impersonal. How do we Juggle these two Energies in 2D? Maybe it’s not as simple as Surrendering our Survival to a Higher Power – maybe we need to make a Personal Contribution as well.

🃏 Very seldom does astrology stick us with a naked T-Square. They’re almost always embellished with Grace of some sort, which we’ll take up in the next post.

Guilt and Resistance II

April 5, 2021

For the last week we’ve been working with Exaggerations of our Guilt, our Ability to Respond, and our Fate (Stations1 of asteroid Nemesis, dwarf planet Pholus, and asteroid Karma on 5, 3, and 2 April 2021, respectively).


Because Fate vs. Free Will is a Duality, we know tautologically that it’s an artifact of the Dualistic Observing Mind, and not a property of the Multifarious and Unitary External Reality that’s being Observed. Separating our Projections (artifacts of our Concepts and Emotions that we’re unwilling to recognize as Our Own Bias) from Observed Reality is a perpetual problem for Hupers. We Intend to Perceive more Reality and less Projection as we Grow our Consciousness, but the situation is much Complicated by the fact that We Are Not Separate from “External” Reality, so like Slugslime our Projections can be very difficult to Wash Off.

Current-Lifetime Habits of Perception and Behavior are relatively Easy to Change, usually through Decision and a smallish number of Reps. All Habits are like Muscles – they become Stronger with Use, and Atrophy with Disuse. Karmic Habits, which we brought with us into our Current Lifetime from Other Lifetimes2, are much more Difficult to Shed. It’s probably safe to assume that virtually all Addictions are Karmic.

When asteroid Karma is Lit Up, as it was last week and to a lesser extent this week, so are our Karmic Habits Lit Up. We Break any Habit, Karmic or otherwise, by becoming Aware of the Pattern, and Changing our Behavior or Thoughts. The more we do this, the Faster we Notice, and the Easier Change becomes. The Easier Change becomes, the faster we Notice. It’s a “Virtuous Circle.” We accelerate our progress by Congratulating Ourself for Noticing each time the Habit repeats, rather than Cursing Ourself for Repeating the Habit Again. Positive Feedback always works better than Negative Feedback.

Karmic Habits are harder, because they’ve usually Permeated more of our Thought Patterns and Behavior Patterns. A Current-Lifetime Habit of eating Eggs might be Broken over Breakfast. But a Karmic Habit of Ignoring our Self-Care may Impact much of our Life Experience. So we will probably have to Notice and Change over and over again in many different arenas of Life. While it’s Difficult to maintain our Motivation in the face of constant Frustration, that’s Exactly what’s Required for Breaking Karmic Habits. We need to stay with Positive Feedback.

The biggest source of Tension in the chart of the 2 April Station of asteroid Karma3

…is between our Trust (asteroid Eurydike) and our Codependence (dwarf planet Hylonome). Whom do we Trust more – our Self and our Decisions, or the Other People to whom we usually Give Away Our Power? Addictions always have Enablers, and our closest friends and relatives are Powerful Enablers for our Negative Habits. So our Decisions to Notice and Change have to be Stronger than our Allegiance to our friends and relatives. Often we have to Choose between Sticking with a Decision to Change (asteroid Ceres, at the tip of the T-Square or red triangle, is about Sustainability) and Losing the Love of our Compatriots.

The Twelfth Harmonic4 is about Pattern-Breaking, and the Unx Angle (the short green lines in the chart) represents an Opportunity to Break a Pattern between two Energies more Easily than it might otherwise be. In a chart of a Station of asteroid Karma, this Opportunity increases Exponentially. There are five Unxes in this chart…

  • Moon (Instincts) Waning Unx to Hylonome (Self-Sovereignty). Any Waning Angle is a Strong Invitation to Notice and Change anyway, so a Waning Unx is really an Or Else! for Letting Go of any Obsolete Pattern. This one is about either following your Instincts to stay Safe by Giving Away Your Power, or following your Instincts to Challenge your Codependence and Take a Stand that threatens your Social Status. How to tell which it is? If it’s not Obvious then the Real Obsolete Pattern that you’re Ready to Transcend is the Habit of Forcing a Complex World into Binary Choices.
  • Ceres (Sustainability) Waning Unx Lilith (Self-Sovereignty again!). Which End of your Life is ultimately more Sustainable – Giving Away Your Power, or Claiming Your Power? Knowing your Heart’s Truth, or Thinking Logically?
  • Mars Out of Bounds (Strong Action) Waxing Unx Lilith (Self-Sovereignty). Methinks we have a Theme building here. The Waxing Unx is when we have to make Unpopular Choices if we want to be Prepared for the Future, because most of our Culture is feverishly defending their Investment in the Dead-End Patterns of the previous Cycle. They know it’s Dead (we Hope!), but they still Believe they need to coax another fifteen shillings out of it in order to be a “Success” and Rescue their Ego. On the Contrary, our Strong Action needs to be devoted to the New Cycle that began at the Initiation, or first Conjunction. For Mars-Lilith that would be 10 August 2020 in 22 Aries, “The gate to the Garden of All Fulfilled Desires.” That sounds to me a lot more like our Wannas than our Shouldas. Do we have the Courage?
  • Mars Out of Bounds (Strong Action) Waning Unx Eurydike Out of Bounds (Strong Trust). If you spent last week Procrastinating about your Shoulds, or pretty much Ignoring them, and instead doing what you Felt Like Doing at the time, you’ve probably already won the lottery. Not that your Shoulds are Wrong – that set of Life Choices will probably be Resurrected, but your Relationship to it will be completely Different. Instead of Thinking, “I Should be Doing That, but I don’t feel like Doing it,” you might end up Realizing, “I wouldn’t mind Scheduling an hour a day to Do That, I just don’t want it to Control the rest of my Life.”
  • Stationary asteroid Karma (Exaggerated Karma) Waxing Unx asteroid Eurydike Out of Bounds (Strong Trust). Whom do we ultimately Trust here – our Karmic Ego, or our Soul’s Purpose? Do we know the Difference? It’s probably the more Difficult Choice. This astroevent could even Teach us about our Soul’s Purpose!


1 As ours and other planets circle the Sun as if it were Indianapolis or the Nurburgring, we’re moving at different speeds, so it’s inevitable that we pass one another. As the Earth passes a slower planet, the slower planet appears to slow down, stop, and reverse direction. When it stops, or Stations, its Impact upon us is Strongest. This Energy usually builds slowly to the actual Station, then declines, but for any number of reasons, different people will Experience the Energy and its Changes differently.

Most planets circle the Sun in approximately the same plane – that is, if we look at our Solar System from the side, the orbits of the planets are more like the Rings of Saturn than the orbits of Earth Satellites. However, the orbital planes aren’t perfectly aligned, and the Earth is tilted in its own orbit, so the planets appear to move up (“North”) and down (“South”) in the sky as we go around the Sun. Planets are also Stationary when they stop to switch their motion in the sky from North to South and vice versa.

2 In addition to Linear-Time Reincarnation, there are a number of other Conceptualizations about Multi-Lifetime Dynamics. I often speak in the voice of Linear Reincarnation because it’s among the most common Conceptualizations on the topic among the Oft-Born, so I assume it will communicate most efficiently. The notion of Karma as Inertia (not Retribution) fits most directly with Linear Reincarnation. (There are three major Views about the Impermanence of Egoic Life, namely Once-Born, Twice-Born, and Oft-Born.)

I do assume (and have seen multiple evidence in my own Lifetime to fortify it) that Linear Time is a 3D Illusion, so I sometimes talk about Parallel Lifetimes – the notion that all Other Lifetimes are occurring simultaneously with this one. Inertial Karma is a little trickier in this framework.

Another Viewpoint assumes that we are all Lightworker Souls, and when we as Souls Choose to Incarnate, we Choose a few Issues we want to advance, and Program our to-be-Incarnated Self to carry this simulation of the Karma which will further develop those Issues. In this View, Karma operates as Inertia, the way it does in the Linear-Reincarnation Perspective, and to the extent that we succeed in Changing our own Karma, we advance the Karma of the Species. A feature of this View is that our Soul does not Own the Karma we’re working on, our Ego does.

I don’t assume that the Ego survives a Physical Death, but that our Karma does, including our Good Karma. So while we don’t carry our Material Gains from Lifetime to Lifetime, we do carry What We’ve Learned into Other Lifetimes, which can look as if we carried our Material Gains along.

Mindful that Either/Or Is Always Political while the Universe Operates through Both/And, I have no interest in defending or defrocking any of these Perspectives, including the Once-Born and Twice-Born. Even if my Personal Experience tells me I’m Oft-Born, that doesn’t mean that everyone has to be. The Universe is Ineffable – we don’t have nearly the Bandwidth necessary to Grok it. So our Intellectual and Emotional Viewpoints are always Conditional.

And one of the Bottom-Line Beliefs of this Blog is that the more Perspectives we can carry, the greater is our Resilience when Change occurs. Contradiction is a property of the Dualistic Mind, not a property of “Competing” Perspectives. Paradox is a more Resilient Concept than Contradiction, because it Allows us to Believe Contradicting Perspectives at the same time. As Reality Changes, and we Agree that Change is the one Constant in Reality, our Understanding can shift with it, perhaps from something like 60% Viewpoint A and 40% Viewpoint B, to 40% View A and 40% View B and 20% View C.

3 We aim more toward Interpretation than Prediction, because if we know how to Interpret what’s going on in the Past and Present, we don’t need to worry about Predicting the Future. So if you Learn something about yourself by comparing these notes to your Experience of last week, we’ve met our Goal. Even if we’re Dead Wrong about our Interpretation, if it Inspired an Insight into your Experience – you Trusted what you Feel more than what you Read, we’ve met our Goal.

4 The Twelfth Harmonic, in the astrological Context, is the Angle formed between two planets that are Separated by one twelfth of the Zodiac, that is, they’re approximately 30 Degrees (360 divided by 12) or one Sign apart. The word “Unx” means one twelfth of something, so we refer to this Angle as an Unx. The Twelfth Harmonic in astrology aligns with the Twelfth Major Arcana in Tarot, which is The Hanged Man, who hangs not by his Neck or his Fingernails, but by his Heels, in order to see the World differently than he usually does. The Hanged Man is about Pattern-Breaking.
