Full Moon Scramble IV

December 5, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The other seven Mjölnirs or potential Epiphanies…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Get the idea?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Now the Biggie…

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

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

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

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

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

Let’s disassemble that Square…

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

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

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

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

Curiosity and Desire

June 17, 2016

It’s hard to overemphasize how important it is to maintain our Curiosity about how our newfound Vulnerability (ie, Loss of our Masks) will impact our Mission (and Deepest Desires).  

As always, we don’t mean Curiosity as a means to an end – Questions seeking Answers.  We mean Curiosity as an end in itself – Wonder and Awe, eyes wide and mouth ajar.

Since our Deepest Desires are often a source of Vexation – we Want it but we can’t seem to Get it, or Keep it when we do – we might well find our mind grinding away on our Lifelong Frustrations.  If that’s the case, this grinding is exactly the Pattern that we need to Replace.  That’s why it’s Lit Up.

Which is the Key to the Temple, to Realize that when any Bummer is Lit Up, it’s Lit Up to inform us that we have Work to do on our Limiting Beliefs.  And the Work is easy – we just Embrace ourself.  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really Bummed by this, aren’t you.”  The apparently difficult part is Discerning that Oh Yeah, we’re Feeling here, and we don’t like the Feeling!  We need to Learn to Love ALL of our Feelings, and this is The Opportunity to Practice just that!!  Hooray!!

Chances are we’ve built up Stories around why our Deepest Desires elude us – because of some quirk of our childhood perhaps, or maybe we’ve concluded that Huper Nature just works that way, or some Pattern that we believe Limits us but we’ve never been able to Change.  Mindstuff.  Let it all Go.  Come to Curiosity instead…

“I Wonder why my Deepest Desires always elude me.”

Just that simple.  Make it a Mantra, a Ritual.  Carve it into your mirrors, your refrigerator door, your smartphone, write it on the inside of your eyelids.  Don’t let it become rote.  Close your eyes when you say it to yourself (except when driving or operating machinery), and really Feel that Energy bubbling up from the Deeps.

While this particularly applies next week to our Deepest Desires, it’s an excellent strategy for dealing with any stuck Pattern we have.  What if we want to Eat less, or less often, or less Sugar, for instance.  Then whenever we have a moment of Awareness before or during our urge to Eat, we can pause a minute and…

I Wonder why I always want to Eat while I’m writing.

Followed by a pause.  This is a PIAVA – an invitation to Intuition – so we need to pause and Change the Subject.  We could go back to Eating 

(we Change the Subject to prevent the mind from constraining us to our existing Limiting Beliefs; Eating is quite different from Analyzing Eating),

for instance, or back to writing.  The Intuition will surprise us later.

We mentioned in passing that Jupiter’s Initiation of the North Node (Exact 3pm PDT 24 June at 17 Virgo – Volcanos) Biquintiles (Learning New Rituals) Uranus’s and Eris’s Initiation of Ceres (Exact 8pm 21 June and 5am 23 June, respectively, both at 24 Aries – Abundance), but it deserves more than a mention.  

These are Waxing Biquintiles.  

In the evolution of a Cycle, the Waxing 

  • Trioctile (8th Harmonic/Rebalancing, and 3rd Harmonic/Compassion) precedes the 
  • Biquintile (5th Harmonic/Learning, and 2nd Harmonic/Ritual), which in turn precedes the 
  • Quincunx (12th Harmonic/Pattern-Breaking, and 5th Harmonic/Learning).

So once a new Energy

  • Becomes Permanent (Square) and
  • Blesses us for Acknowledging it (Trine – without Acknowledgement, the Trine denotes Arrogance),
  • We Lovingly Adapt to it (Trioctile),
  • Learn and Practice new Rituals that match the new Energy (Biquintile), and 
  • Break any old Habits that would get in our way (Quincunx).  

By choosing Magnetism (PIAVA – Curiosity) instead of Dynamism (Plan-Do), we gain Free Attention to use on our Seva rather than our Process.

So it would behoove to see what our Jupiter-Uranus and Jupiter-Eris Cycles are about.  The current Jupiter-Uranus Cycle (Expanding into greater Connection to Soul) began in June 2010 at 1 Aries (Manifesting Form).  The current Jupiter-Eris Cycle (Amplifying Truth) was Initiated at the end of April 2011 in 22 Aries (“The gate to the garden of all fulfilled desires“).  Intense.

What a “Coincidence” that Desire arises.  Not to mention the hint that Truth leads to fulfillment of Desire.

For a while on 23 June (approximately 6am to 11am PDT), the Jupiter/North Node to Uranus/Eris/Ceres Biquintile is joined by Venus and the Moon to form four-fifths of a Grand Quintile (Learning Made Easy).  The Vacancy – the Energy we’d Supply Consciously in order to complete the Grand Quintile and remove the Stress – is the last degree of Scorpio (Mischievousness).  So it’s important to Play, perhaps just a bit impolitely.

At the same time, Chiron and Saturn join Venus in an intertwined Septangle – Venus Triseptiles Saturn which Biseptiles Chiron which in turn Biseptiles Venus.

The Biseptile is about Timing our Rituals for maximum Effect, and the Triseptile is about Timing our Compassion so it’s neither Taken for Granted nor Abused.

We could read this as, The Most Important Thing (Saturn) is to be Loving and Gentle with ourself (Venus) whenever we find ourself touching our Despair (Chiron).  Venus occupies the inflection point between the Septangle and the incipient Grand Sextile, telling us that the Key is Magnetic.

Native American New Moon I

October 12, 2015

As we mentioned in the last post…

“There are actually two other Configurations in … Monday’s New Moon chart, [which] color it strongly.  One of them will provide Epiphanies about our Soul Self and [about] how [we might] adjust our Values and Identity to manifest [our Soul Self into our current Lifetime] more strongly (which Epiphanies will be multiplied by our intervening success at achieving Beginner’s Mind).  

“The other is about being Reborn into the Unimaginable through taking small steps toward Embracing our Orphaned Forbidden Genius.”

“Which are in turn, (1) a Uranus Mjolnir (a third planet at the far Midpoint between two planets that Square one another) on a base of Venus Square Saturn, and (2) a Golden Rectangle between dwarf planets Eris, Chaos, Haumea, and Ixion, with Centaur Pholus Conjunct Ixion, the New Moon Conjunct Haumea, and Uranus Conjunct Eris.”

Mjolnir is two Trioctiles from each end of a Square, merging on a third planet, which becomes the focus of the Mjolnir.  The Configuration is sometimes called “Thor’s Hammer,” and the term Mjolnir is Norwegian for just that.  Thor’s Hammer is often associated with destructive force, but that’s not quite accurate.  In the same sense that Uranus represents Disruption – Disruption of what is no longer in alignment with the Soul’s path for us in the Lifetime, Thor’s Hammer represents penetration of any Defense – as in any Defensiveness that protects the Ego from following the Soul’s path in the Lifetime.  Lightning is a good representation of the Mjolnir, as it is for the corresponding symbol in the Hindu tradition, the Vajra – sudden illumination of the Darkness, or Epiphany.

The Waxing Trioctile, 135 Degrees, combines the Eighth and Third Harmonics – Adjustment/Rebalancing and Love with Wisdom.  In the evolution of a Cycle, it sits between the Trine (120 Degrees) and the Biquintile (144); between the Grace that follows from aligning one’s path with the Zeitgeist (Trine), and the Realization of the Value of Tradition and the Power of Ritual (Biquintile).  The Biquintile in turn is followed closely by the Quincunx (150, Curiosity), the Triseptile (154) – Shamanic Power exercised for the Good of All, and the Quadrinovile (160) – Mastery gained through Self-Examination in Contemplation.  

This is a powerful section of the Zodiac, corresponding to Leo and early Virgo.  There are massive Changes going on, but they’re faced with the Courage of Leo, because the Uncertainty and Confusion of the earlier sections of the Zodiac have passed under the Bridge, and by now we kind of have a feel for what’s going down.  The notion that a Trioctile is a minor Square (often called a “Sesqui-Square”) is valid in only one sense: the sense that the Ego is a Trickster that can point one in the wrong direction if one focuses on Greed or Revenge.  Of course the zone of the Waning Trioctile and its near neighbors corresponds to Scorpio – the Debriefing that follows the Phitile.  While Leo embodies Courage, the defining quality of Scorpio is Fearlessness.

In today’s Mjolnir, the Waxing Trioctile is Venus to Uranus: Adjusting and Rebalancing our Values to better reflect the ongoing Descent of our Soul Self.  The Cycle Initiated in March at 15 Aries, “A Native American weaving a ceremonial blanket.”

The Waning Trioctile is Saturn to Uranus: Debriefing the Ego to discover what it has Learned about the Soul’s Intention as a result of its Experience with the Cycle that is beginning to unwind – which was “The Pope Blessing the Faithful,” 30 Sagittarius, February 1988, part of the Harmonic Convergence.

The Square is Waning, Venus to Saturn: Challenge to Ease up on the Ego’s role as the Protector of our Physical Vehicle.  The Cycle is “Native Americans making camp after moving into new territory,” – 26 Scorpio, November 2014.  In other words, some of our Beliefs about what we need to Survive have become Limiting Beliefs, that we’re Challenged to Let Go of.

So really, there are Big Questions here…

  • Ritual and Tradition are strong here.  What a “coincidence” that this New Moon occurs on Native American Day.
  • Since March, what have you connected or reconnected with, that you Feel is Sacred?  Have you established a Ritual, or Ritual Object, of some sort to honor it?
  • What has the Ego Learned since the Harmonic Convergence!  Wow.  Who were you in 1986?  What’s Changed in your Field since then?  What’s different now about the way you Defend your Health and your “turf” and the externalities that you Identify with (work? Relationship? Family? Money? Religion? Sports? Politics?)?  Does your current Perspective seem like Growth, or backsliding, compared to where you were in 1986?  Of course it’s Both/And; in what ways is it Growth, and in what ways is it backsliding?  Where are the razor-wire fences you can Levitate over?
  • Things in your Life were Changing rapidly in late 2014 and early 2015.  You made some Decisions about what you needed to do to Support yourself.  Decisions are like Instant Karma; they create Patterns that are useful in the short run, but which seldom come with their own Sunset Provisions.  We forget we made them, and we don’t revisit them to see if they’re still relevant.  What Decisions about Survival did you make in late 2014 and early 2015, and are they still relevant?  Or are they holding you back?  Both/And?  How to Rebalance/Adjust them to bring them into the Present Moment.  

Decisions don’t have to be explicit; recurring thoughts can have the same Power.  What were you thinking about in late 2014 and early 2015?  Were your thoughts Constructive, or Fearful in nature?  

So you don’t have to get bogged down in details, you may want to just PIAVA that obsolete Decisions and Patterns come to your Attention, gently and lovingly, and Adjustments appropriate to Now become Clear.  Make sure you include the gently and lovingly, because a PIAVA like this could turn your Life upside down if you didn’t also ask for Grace.  You may want to limit it to recent Decisions and Patterns, or, if you don’t, be watchful for Overwhelm, and respond to it with a compensatory PIAVA on the order of Visualizing or Affirming that the Changes in your Life occur at exactly the right speed, so you’re neither too early nor too late to synch with the Planetary Changes.  Or, you can just Levitate over the fence.

In the next installment, we’ll go into “The other [Configuration] is about being Reborn into the Unimaginable through taking small steps toward Embracing our Orphaned Forbidden Genius.”

Full Moon 31.7.15 – Time to Act

July 30, 2015

gal3837bpGalena, Lead Sulfite, the ultimate Grouding Crystal.  Heavy, you only need a little.  Find a small Crystal and keep it in a pill capsule or a small plastic bottle; you don’t want to be handling or inhaling the Lead.  Galena collects and stores Energy that’s not ready to be used yet, so you can use it as a reservoir.

There are places in our Lives where we Hesitate to take full control because no one has given us Permission or Authority to do so.  Power is never Given, only Taken.  These are precisely the places where WE need to Give Ourselves not just Permission and Authority, but a Mandate.  We need to Take the Power.  You know what needs doing.  This Full Moon is the time to Get Started.

There are places in our Lives where we Hesitate to take full control because no one has given us Permission or Authority to do so. 

Power is never Given, only Taken

These are precisely the places where WE need to Give Ourselves not just Permission and Authority, but a Mandate. 

We need to Take the Power

You know what needs doing. 

This Full Moon is the time to Get Started.

It bears repeating.  Read it again.  And stop Hesitating.  It’s your Mission.

The Full Moon (4am PDT on 31 July – http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt4.htm ) is the focus of a Mjolnir Kite across the Square from Chiron to Pholus-Ixion.

The Mjolnir is formed by a third planet at the Far Midpoint of two planets that make a Square – a triangle with a Square on the base and two Triociles for sides.  The Trioctile is about Insight into bringing things back into Balance.  Mjolnir is the Norwegian term for Thor’s Hammer, which isn’t so much about Destruction as about Irresistable Force; Lightning is a common metaphor.  The Hindu Vajra is very similar in meaning.  The Mjolnir is then about Epiphany – Irresistable Insights that are Life-Changing.

The Mjolnir Kite has a fourth planet Opposite the third, or at the Near Midpoint of the Square.  The third planet is the Focus of the Mjolnir, but the fourth planet is the Focus of the Mjolnir Kite.  The Insights and Epiphany pertain to the issues raised by the Square.  The two planet in Opposition provide information about how the Epiphany is revealed.

In this case, the Moon is the Focus of the Mjolnir Kite, and the Opposition is the Full Moon itself – the Epiphany will be revealed through Illumination, Brightly.  No more through a glass darkly here.  The Square joins Chiron – Despair and Miracle – with the Pholus-Ixion Conjunction.  Ixion is about Unconscious Commitment to the point of pathology, and Pholus is about Responsibility to the point of Obsession.  Few of us are willing to let our Ixion out of the cage in the back room.  But if we do, and Take Full Responsibility (not Blame, which looks backward for Cause, but Responsibility, which looks forward for Impact) for it, Miracles await.

Confused?  Good – first stage of Growth, eh?

What are you Discouraged about?  That’s where your Mission is, and that’s where the Miracles are hiding.  You came here to do this, and it takes a whole bunch of Courage to Commit so strongly to what – because there’s no Support, it’s all your project – feels like a Suicide Mission.  Your Support will fall in line after you Take Full Responsibility and Commit – but you’ll be continually Teaching, because your Support has its own Mission that’s tangential to yours.  You can’t just delegate; you need to continue to monitor and stay fully involved.

Chaos Opposes Pholus-Ixion; there is Unlimited Potential here for those who are willing to risk Full Commitment.  Chiron T-Squares this Opposition…

Very scary but Miraculous results if you risk it.  Don’t expect easy going or early success; in fact any success will be partial.  You aren’t in this to succeed; you’re in it because it’s Who You Are.

The Full-Moon and Chaos-Pholus-Ixion Oppositions are Octile and Trioctile to one another, forming a Trioctile Box.

Box or Rectangular Configurations like the Mystic or Golden Rectangle (with Trine and Sextile sides) are all about the Energy in the Oppositions.  The Trioctile Box is about Adjustment, Balance, and Insight.

Giving us emphasis on both the Illumination aspect of the Full Moon and the Full Responsibility-Unlimited Scope aspect of Chaos-Pholus-Ixion, which multiplies the Power of the Mjolnir Kite.

Not only that, but the Opposition between Chaos and Pholus-Ixion, along with the Opposition between Uranus-Eris and Haumea (Rebirth as a result of the Revelation of what’s been Hidden – which is evolving into the first half of 2016), form a Golden Rectangle.  Golden Rectangles are about Grace – if we’re willing to immerse ourselves in the Oppositions.  In other words…

There is information we don’t have yet, and which we may not have until well into 2016.  Rather than wait for the information, you want to Trust your Instincts now, and get started now.  You really do know what your bottom line is, what to you is The Most Important Thing.  That’s all you really need to know.  What do want to Change, and what do you want it to look like after you Change it?  You know that much very well.

Saturn (The Most Important Thing) is Stationary on 1 August at 11pm PDT (http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt23.htm ).

There are two aspects to that.  First, where would you deploy them if you had the Resources you need.  And second, what is it that stops you from having those Resources?  Your Desires might seem Selfish, but they aren’t.  Selfish is what people called you because they were afraid of your Passion, and because their Ego was Competing with you.  If you believed you were Selfish then they could preserve their sense of superiority.  This is what Ixion is about – Selfish.  Selfish as an epitaph that slows you down, and Selfish as a Full Commitment to set everything else aside and Focus on your Most Important Thing.

So we need to drop any Shame or Hesitation we feel about Wanting what we’ve always Wanted – those are the Resources we need to Create our Most Important Thing.  Who will be upset with you if you put your own Wants first, ahead of theirs?  It’s not that they are holding you back; it’s your Limiting Beliefs about what will happen if you jet ahead.  Holding back isn’t an option any more; you’ll just have to find out what will really happen.  It’ll probably be quite different from what you imagine – our Limiting Beliefs are like that.

Portal 4.5

April 5, 2014

elsmcit1688bpElestial Citrine.

Elestial Quartz formed quickly in Water, hence its multiple merged points.  It’s one Crystal, with many points.  It brings Angelic assistance to the task of allowing our True Self to manifest into practical Form.  Citrine brings all four of our Bodies into alignment, transforms negative Emotions, and clears away impediments to our Understanding of how it all fits together.  Smokey Quartz (Elestials are Smokey, and Citrine is a form of Quartz) absorbs negative radiation as well.

 

Programming the Future

There’s a fascinating interview with John Hogue on Coast to Coast AM, at…

http://www.coasttocoastam.com/show/2014/03/26

Starting about ten minutes in.  You have to subscribe to get access to it, so I’ll summarize the key points…

John is a Nostradamus scholar, and refers to his study and use of the idioms of 16th-Century French to help decode Nostradamus’s quatrains.  After a long discussion of the predictions of Nostradamus and several other seers down over the centuries, he considers whether a second Cold War will begin this month, or in October, and whether a nuclear WWIII is likely to befall us –  “Raining Stars from the Sky and killing more people in one day than all previous wars combined” as one prognostication put it – though that would fit for an asteroid collision as well.

Then he discusses various views of the Antichrist, and his belief that the Antichrist is actually our own Unconsciousness, some foretelling we “Walk into the conflagration with eyes wide open.”  And how he regards the massive Denial (see “1964-1973” in Unexploded Bomb) we live in today as example.  Then they took a couple of calls from listeners.

One listener wanted to discuss his pet theories about the Malaysian Airlines 777.  John rather sternly cut him off at the ankles, citing his obsession with the missing airliner as a sterling example of the slavish obeisance to the mass hypnosis peddled by the corporate media that decorates our massive Denial.

Another caller was a fellow who patiently explained to John how he could avoid the catastrophe and get sent to Heaven instead by taking Jesus as his Savior.  John gently shot him out of the water, pointing out that there are 32 other Christian sects, each with their own recipe for Salvation, not to mention the many sects of Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and YouNameItism.  Again, slavish obeisance to the intellectual formulae peddled by the religions is exactly the sort of hypnosis that will keep us in Denial.

He pointed out that future events will be unlike anything we’ve witnessed in the past, and the only way Humanity will wake up and say NO! is by stepping outside of the established propaganda machines and obsolete paradigms, opening our Observer Selves to witness the massive Destruction barreling down on us and the signs and signals of its progress, and raising our collective Voices to take Action to at least delay it if not transform it.

On the other hand, Bill Clinton was on the tube the other night talking about how the youngsters he works with have their eyes open and are creating all manner of innovative approaches to shift the Energy.  In contrast to the alleged Hollywood Boulevard dunces that his Puer host shamelessly exploits nightly.

 

Prediction and Interpretation

As I hope you know by now, we focus here on interpretation rather than prediction.  We do that for a couple of reasons.  First, while astrology is a great lever for focusing the Intuition, no two people have the same chart and the same set of Life experiences, and no two people will react or respond the same way to a given Energy.  Second, everyone actually uses words differently, so even if you Intuit exactly what someone is up to, the probability of actually communicating it is small.  Third, You would have to understand in advance how the person would likely use the information; you wouldn’t want to create unnecessary additional difficulty for them.  Finally, you want to harness the Placebo effect as much as you can, so you try to propose not possible futures but paths to Healing.

Which is what I like about John Hogue’s interview – he was proposing a path to Healing – namely, getting Conscious.  Which is exactly what Portal 4.5 is about.  It’s a unique and shining opportunity, because the rest of April is fraught with potential Challenges of Yintegrity.  So the more we can use Portal 4.5 to lever up our Consciousness, the more effective will be our response to the Challenges before us.

 

There are six overlapping Energies running through this Portal.

The first three are of longer duration, but form an important backdrop for the Portal itself.

  • We are moving toward Compassion for both the limitations of Physical Reality and the travails demanded by Spirit.  Recognize Confusion as the first stage of Growth, and respond to any difficulty by letting go of your obsession with the Material.  Look for the Energy behind it. 

The Trioctile is three eighths of the way ’round the Zodiac.  The Eighth Harmonic is about Realignment, and the Third about Love with Wisdom.  Mars (Physical Energy) is making a Waning Trioctile to Neptune (Spiritual Energy).  The Waning Mars-Neptune Cycle is about “Petrified tree trunks lie broken on desert sand” – yes, the infrastructure of civilization is broken, but it’s time to move beyond that realization and begin building a new structure.

  • The first stage of Rebuilding is to find Compassion for ourselves over our discovery that the pillars of our own Belief Systems have also collapsed.  We aren’t sure what to Believe any more, and that’s a good thing – it means we’re moving out beyond the intellectual formulae and mass hypnosis to a place where we can see more clearly and respond when we need to.  Stay with the Confusion – it will lead you to very important new Insights.

While the Chiron Mjolnir has dissolved because Lilith (as is her wont) has gone her own way, the Waning Trioctile from the Vesta-Ceres-North Node Conjunction to Chiron remains strong.

  • The April 5-7 window is a powerful opening for putting into practice the increasingly urgent feeling that we need to Let Go of our Masks and let our True Self shine through.  In fact, we’re highly likely to start this process by putting our foot in our mouth in a big way.  When that happens, don’t backtrack.  Do apologize for being abrupt, and make sure you’re speaking about your feelings and not about other people.  But stay with your Truth – it’s how we will recognize our Team and get to work.

After being recently Initiated by Uranus, Juno is about to Initiate the Sun.  The Juno-Uranus Initiation was the “Unexploded bomb.”  The Sun-Juno Initiation will be about “Abundance made possible by Human cooperation.”  And the Sun-Juno Initiation takes place right on Eris!  So there will be big sheets of Denial peeled away here.

The other three Energies are more ephemeral.  Two of these more ephemeral Energies form the primary Portal, opening from around 9am PDT to 6pm PDT on April 5.

  • The Most Important Thing during this Window will be to Trust what may feel like “random” Emotions.  Those are our Instincts.  They come straight from our Heart and Soul, not from our Programming or our Intellect.  They could put us into awkward situations, but stay with your Truth, as this is the process of moving into Yintegrity.

A Quintile Yod forms when a third planet occupies the far midpoint between two planets that Quintile one another.  It means that the third planet becomes the focus of attention to direct the Energies of the other two planets, while the whole Configuration introduces a probably-inconvenient but definitely-important “Learning Opportunity.”  Here Saturn is the focus, with the Moon and the Sun-Juno Conjunction as the feet.

  • There is Great Grace available in the synergies between Trusting our Instincts, Allowing our Belief System to be scrambled not with Doubt but with Curiosity, and enlisting our Compassion for Self and Other.

The Moon makes a Grand Trine with Venus and the Vesta-Ceres-North Node Conjunction.

  • The Grace multiplies many times over when we lovingly and gently open to our Karma.  We recoil from our Karma (the unpleasant experiences that we don’t want to see repeated) because it has given us such grief in the past.  But it’s a mere shadow of its former self, and when we open our Heart to it and find Compassion for ourself in its grip, it will dissolve in a few minutes.  But we have to Consciously take that step – notice our recoil, congratulate ourself for noticing it, and then soften our Resistance to it.

The South Node and Pallas Trine one another and Sextile the Grand Trine, forming five points of a Grand Sextile.  That tells us to look at the Vacancy – the missing jetliner, no, the missing sixth point that would complete the Grand Sextile.  That happens to be a busy point, as Quaoar and Chariklo are both recently Stationary there, and it happens to be where the Galactic Center sits, or the Black Whole at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy.  Just to put frosting on the cake, the asteroid Karma is there as well, itself Stationing in a few weeks.

In other words, the force of the entire Galaxy is at our backs here!  But the onus is upon us to take the first step out of our habitual reactions.  It almost doesn’t matter how we respond or act, as long as it’s different and new.  That’s one thing about the True Self – we don’t do it, we stand back and allow it to come through.  We just Relax and stop Resisting it.  It’s the easiest thing in the World, it’s absolutely natural for you – when you Let It Go.  We’re used to being punished or Shamed for being ourselves, because that’s what brings it into sharp focus for us and separates it from the background noise.  We just need to confront the Shaming, and embrace our historical Punished One.

We still need to write about the Water Nymph Chariklo, known about the Heavens for her Beauty and Grace.
