This’ll Expand your Perspective a bit…
While you were watching that, did you Feel Smaller than usual, or Bigger? Was it Both/And? In what ways did you Feel Smaller and in what ways Bigger? Expanding is one of the esoteric processes that extend PIAVA. Watch it again, full-screen, while you Imagine having What you Want.
Saturn means The Most Important Thing. It tells us when we need to quit multi-tasking and focus intensely on Priority #1. On 1/1/2000, Saturn danced with the Moon, Pallas, and Uranus, advising that The Most Important Thing during the 21st Century will be Trusting our Instincts and adjusting our Boundaries to make room for our True Soul Self to Manifest (our Yintegrity) without its Habitual Masks.
Saturn Opposed the Moon and T-Squared Pallas and Uranus at 12am on 1/1/2000 – in the Western Hemisphere. In the Eastern Hemisphere the Moon-Saturn Opposition forms a Grand Cross with the Nodal Axis instead of the Pallas-Uranus Opposition. We’ll consider the implications of this fascinating dichotomy later.
Saturn Feels like Limitation because we’re usually scared to put all of our Attention on Life Priority #1, because if we fail at that, we’ll really be a failure. So we put backup Priorities in place, to keep us Safe just in case Priority #1 doesn’t work out. And often, we “hired” a Significant Other or two to actively discourage us from working on Priority #1 (in order to increase the likelihood that we’ll bring it fully into Consciousness), often with punishment, so we’re scared we’ll be punished or humiliated if we drop all of our other Priorities.
“Most people view the past as a ‘learning experience.’ They think, ‘Something happened, so I learned to feel or act in a certain way. But that was years ago. I’m older and more mature and I know it’s not the right thing to be doing – so why won’t it go away? There must be something wrong with me.’ The thing to keep in mind is that there may be something wrong, but it doesn’t have to define us. It means that there are certain unprocessed memories that are physiologically stored in our brains that contain the emotions and physical sensations that were there at the time of the event [or ongoing chronic negative Experience]. Because these memories are unprocessed, they continue to generate negative thoughts and feelings whenever they’re triggered. That’s why you may have heard or seen some very successful friends suddenly begin to talk and act like children when they get on the phone with a family member.” –Francine Shapiro, Getting Past Your Past: Take Control of Your Life with Self-Help Techniques from EMDR Therapy, pp.70-71 (emphasis mine)
It “won’t go away” because our Soul’s Plan is that we need to bring it into Consciousness. Without all of our Fallbacks, we Feel very Limited. But sooner or later we have to Transcend our Resistance to our First Priority. There are no actual failures in Real Life, just Learning. So we may as well get on with The Important Stuff.
We interpret dwarf planet Sedna as Actions Taken out of Fear. When we’re lucky, Actions Taken out of Fear may lead to Safety, but unintended consequences often arise because we’re Acting from our Karmic Self – Reacting, not Able to Respond from our Grounded Presence. On 1/1/2000, Saturn was Merged with dwarf planet Sedna.
When two planets are Conjunct, their influences are Merged.
With Saturn and Sedna Merged, we won’t be able to differentiate between The Most Important Thing and Acting out of Fear. Even when we Respond to The Most Important Thing, we’ll second-guess ourself because we’ll think we Acted out of Fear. You can see the Climate-Change Deniers trying to manipulate the Economic agenda to their financial advantage by relentlessly pressing this button. And when we Act out of Fear, we won’t be sure if we’re actually addressing The Most Important Thing. Hence much of the Confusion or Hopelessness over what to do by the people who see the impending Planetary Collapse, and self-aggrandizement by those whose temporary success prevents them from seeing it. Not to mention the Fear of the people who see it and are scrambling to accumulate as much ephemeral wealth as they can before the Crash, in hopes it will insulate them from it.
Sedna Initiated Saturn the previous summer, at 17 Taurus, “A symbolical battle between ‘swords’ and ‘torches.’ ” “Swords” represents the mind – our Shoulds. “Torches” symbolize Spirit, our Truth. This Cycle runs until 2030. Saturn-Sedna is Trined (Grace) by Sun-Juno, implying that Expanding Consciousness is Big. Saturn-Sedna also Quincunxes (Permanent Curiosity) Chiron-Pluto (Flag-Eagle-Chanticleer), implying that if we manage to avoid preconceptions we will be continually Surprised by how Getting Conscious of our Fear complements Expanding our Identity to the Light Body.
This changes our interpretation of Saturn’s role in the 21st Century to The Most Important Thing is Getting Conscious of our Fear of Trusting our Instincts and our Fear of Living in Yintegrity. A good time to review…
- Yangtegrity means Doing what we said we would Do
- Yintegrity means Doing what we Feel like Doing, moment to moment
In order to Live in Yintegrity while the rest of the World lives in Yangtegrity, we’ll probably have to minimize our Commitments, Renegotiate often, and when we can’t Renegotiate and the Relationship is important to us, Make Amends.
Remember that we Lose the Veil in the 21st Century – Neptune on the South Node. Neptune means Confusion when we view the World through Material Eyes (which is fine when we remember that Confusion is the first stage of Growth), and Clarity when we view the World through Spiritual Eyes. The South Node represents our Old Habits. The Veil “protects” us from understanding that it’s Spirit and Consciousness that are Real, not the Material World. The Veil was useful while the experiment in Flesh was tentative and unstable, so Materiality wouldn’t disintegrate when we sneezed. We’ve grown some now, and we can not only maintain stable Materiality while Being Spirit-Consciousness, but play with Materiality like Leggos. Or at least, that’s where we should be after the Transformations and Trance Reformations of the 21st Century.
Our day-to-day Identity is more or less determined by the position of our Venus. Folks with Venus in a Fire Sign (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) will lead this Transformation, because they have the least distance to travel to Identify with the Light Body. Venus represents our Unconscious Values. Moving to “I am the Light Body” from “I am my Body” (Venus in Earth, Taurus or Virgo or Capricorn) or “I am my Emotions” (Venus in Water: Pisces, Scorpio, Cancer) or “I am my Thoughts” (Venus in Air, Aquarius or Libra or Gemini) will be more difficult, but the first step is becoming Conscious of Who you routinely Believe Yourself to Be. If you ever catch yourself saying “I’m not one of those people who…” and examine it, you can learn a lot. In the Lifetime, our basic sense of Identity doesn’t change. But we can Learn alternate Identities as if in Theatre, diversifying our repertoire.
For many of us, Venus will Progress through three of the four Elements (Fire, Earth, Air, Water), four if we live long enough. As Progressed Venus moves into a new Element, Identifying with that Element becomes much easier. Your Sense of Self will be influenced not only by the Element your Venus is in, but also the Modality, Sign and House placement, Degree, and its Angular Relationship to other planets.
Not sure we’ve ever mentioned a Progression. Advancing a chart by one day suggests the Life circumstances at age 1, 2 days at age 2, 40 days at age 40, etc. Since Venus moves on average one Sign a month, by age 30 (if not sooner) your Progressed Venus will be in the next Sign and therefore the next Element.
Fire-Spirit, Earth-Matter, Air-Mentality, and Water-Emotion are the four Elements; Cardinal-Creative, Fixed-Stabilizing, and Mutable-Changing, are the three Modalities. Four Elements times three Modalities gives you the twelve Signs, each of which features a unique combination of Element and Modality. Elements and Modalities are critical in understanding the nature of the Signs. Fire and Air Signs have Dynamic Polarity, while Earth and Water Signs have Magnetic Polarity.
We spoke earlier about Venus and Vesta, which are Merged in the 1/1/2000 chart. Vesta represents our bottom-line Unconscious Beliefs, Beliefs we’re willing to Die or Kill for. These are not fixed. To a large extent they are Karmic – based on old Habits – so they can change, but first we must become Conscious of what they are. Unless we were born when Venus and Vesta were Merged, the dissonance between the Century’s Merged Venus-Vesta and our own distinct Values and Unconscious Beliefs, will help bring contrary Beliefs into Consciousness because we’re drawn to the Merger. If we were born with Venus and Vesta Merged, then the Century’s Merger will exaggerate our Identification, which again will help bring it into Consciousness, but in a very different way.
If we were born with Venus Conjunct Vesta, we won’t be able to distinguish our Values from our Unconscious Beliefs. Like most astrological influences, this is good and bad – good in the sense that your Life will probably include less Self-Sabotage, bad in the sense that you could be “too” sure of yourself on the Ego-Material level, and reject other valid Perspectives that could potentially advance your Consciousness. Since Venus moves four times faster than Vesta, they will eventually Progress apart.
We aver that in the 21st Century The Most Important Thing is Getting Conscious of our Fear of Trusting our Instincts and our Fear of Living in Yintegrity, but it’s obvious that many people are living this on a whole different level, the level where The Most Important Thing is Rescuing Ourself from Fear or The Most Important Thing is Milking the Fear of the Masses for Our Own Gain. The “War on Terror” is a bellows to accelerate these conflagrations for personal gain. The Medical-Pharmaceutical-Insurance Cartel is a Master at milking the Once-Born’s Fear of Death.
It’s often said that Evil feeds on Fear, but I think it’s More Important to see the Light feeding on Fear. We came here to Absorb and Transform the pandemic of excess Negative Emotion, to help prevent it from spreading to other parts of the Galaxy. We do that by Being Present with Fear – ours and that of Others – and grounding it. We do that most effectively by Identifying with the Light Body. The Light Body does not Fear Darkness because it knows it to be only a Shadow that the Chanticleer will dissolve. The Light Body does not Fear Death because it knows it to be a misinterpretation of Material Transformation. The Light Body, like Winnie, does not Fear Fear itself because it knows that Fear is just an artifact of the Emotional Body becoming Ungrounded.
