Getting Wild Again7

March 15, 2022

Readers have been wondering about the Long Picture – how current events might relate astrologically to past events. The Quaoar-Pholus Initiation is our primary Long-Picture event, and its history and herstory are certainly noteworthy. Pholus has a very elongated orbit, so at times it travels almost as slowly as Quaoar, and at other times much faster. So while each overall Cycle spans about 100-125 years at this time, the span between the hard Angles (Conjunction, Square, Opposition, or Merger, Challenge, Argument ) is as little as 6 years and as much as 80 years!

At the 1798 Quaoar-Pholus Initiation, Napoleon was just departing on his mission to subdue the Middle East, sailing for Egypt. If 成Pootin’ follows this precedent, Ukraine is indeed just a baby step. Napoleon, however, as did Hitler, ended up Losing it all trying to escape the Russian Plains in winter. So 成Pootin’ will have been better off just taking a winter holiday in Sochi. We’ve discovered why 成Pootin’ is so angry. It’s not Roid Rage as some have suggested (that’s Steroid, not asteroid). He’s angry at his mother because he wanted to be named 成Ras Pootin’, not 成Vladimir.

Shortly after the 1900 Quaoar-Pholus Initiation, the Bolsheviks had what Lenin later called a “Dress Rehearsal” for their later, successful Revolution against the Tsar and Tsarina, and their pal 成Rasputin hisself (滮). As they say, history doesn’t repeat, it alliterates. Or, given Huper nature, maybe that should be obliterates. But, this being an Initiation, let’s compare it to the usual situation around Initiations. A New Cycle Begins, and the New Energy is very prominent in the buildup to the Initiation. But then, after the Initiation, the folks who are heavily Invested in the old Cycle crank up the Propaganda Machine, and re-convince everyone that the Old Cycle Energy is really the Cat’s Pajamas. The New Energy doesn’t break through to become the Main Effect until the Waxing Square.

If we compare it to, say, the Uranus-Pluto Cycle, Peace, Individual Sovereignty, Equality, and Sources of Inner Wisdom were all Dominant Topics leading up to the October 1965 Initiation in 18 Virgo, “A Ouija Board: The ability to contact deeper rescesses of the unconscious psyche and sensitiveness to psychic intimations and omens”

All that seemed to fade away in the subsequent several decades, as Ronnie Reagan and Bill Clinton began moving all the money to the Greedheads.

The money, of course, like the Killing, was the Old Energy, left over from the dying embers of the 1851 Uranus-Pluto Initiation. The Quija Board was growing underground, and ’round about the Waxing Octile, halfway to the Waxing Square, the Harmonic Convergence came along…

And then, finally, there was 2012, the Waxing Square…

There are a few Retards still trying to Deny Peace, Individual Sovereignty, Equality, and Inner Wisdom, but they’re so far out of Time that they won’t have any Staying Power. The Worldwide 癒癒癒NO!!! Response to 成Pootin’ is an example, and Throwbacks like Governors 成duhSanta and 成Costello, House Minority Leader 成Snerd and Charles Manson’s Twin Brother Senator 成Joe are here only for their Comic Effect, to entertain the Dying.

If we return to our earler reading that the Quaoar-Pholus (Survival-Responsibility) Cycle is about Global Climate Change et al,1 while Recognizing that 成Pootin’s Russia has been making its living from its CO2– and Methane-Belching Oil and Gas Industry, and while Listening to the current chorus of Oil Pimps in the US and UK jumping up and down and rooting for Drill Baby Drill! – so Obviously the Old Energy – we could then suppose that we won’t find Relief from Climate Change till the Waxing Pholus-Quaoar Square. If it’s not Too Late by then.2 Pholus is currently near its Aphelion (far away, as in traveling Slowly), Holding Hands with Quaoar, so they will continue to Dance Together Cheek-to-Cheek twice a year until the 2060s!

  • 1 Mother Gaia’s Rapid Evolvution, including giving Hupers a small taste of their own Toxic “Medicine,” that’s the Core of the Issue. Weather and Climate and their Correlates like Wildfires and Sea-Level Rise, are just symptoms. Huperity needs to Reanimate Nature and move into Collaboration with it, instead of Competition and Control, before much will Change. The Demise of the Patriarchy is a small part of the overall Change.
  • 2 I doubt that it will be Too Late, though there will certainly be Permanent Changes, as their already are – it’s just more Huper Hubris to Assume that it’s Up To Us Peons – which is NOT a reason to slack off on our Efforts to Change the Trend.

We’ve just been through the Initiation – the first Conjunction of a New Cycle – of a New Quaoar-Pholus Cycle. We refer to the first Conjunction as the “Can-Opener” because it usually opens a “Can of Worms” or Major Hassle, in this case, several columns of Tanks filled with young, expendable, still-wet-behind-the-ears Russian conscripts, unfortunately and tastelessy given Live Ammunition. If we were “Living Right,” we’d have Unwound our Dependence on the Old-Cycle Energy long before the New Cycle Began.

Once we’re past the Can-Opener, those who haven’t Let Go and are still making Money or Ego off the Energy of the Old Cycle go to great lengths to Convince the rest of us that the Old Cycle is not only Better but Necessary, and the New Energy is Whacko. I mean, it’s New, and it wasn’t Created by Madison Avenue, so it must be Whacko, right? Meanwhile, as Time goes by, it gets harder and harder for them to Convince us, and despite its Relative Invisibility, it gets Easier and Easier, for anyone who’s Open to it, to Embrace the New Energy. When Outer Planets Conjoin or temporarily Merge their Energies, they usually do so several to many times. Subsequent Conjunctions are called “Expositions,” because they Expose what’s really going on and, if we Pay Attention, give us additional information about the nature of the Cycle.

So what do we do, or How do we be, about this? Well, it’s a Fool’s Errand to try outshouting the Old-Energy Carnies, but we can Recognize that their Death Knell will be Loud and Long, and Let their coattails Fund our own efforts.3 We can Stay Awake to the Expositions and Take Advantage of their Opportunities to hone our Approach to our Underground Efforts to Co-Manifest the New Energy. We can Recognize that it’s a multi-Generational Project, and Team Up with younger people who can absorb our Contributions and carry them Forward after we Step through the Veil. Of course we’ll base our own Future on the New Energy, because it’s the one that will Survive. But it’ll take a while, so we won’t Bet the Farm on it yet, rather we’ll slowly Develop it as a Cash Stream separate from our Sustenance.

The first Exposition Conjunction occurs on 6 June 2022. It should be detectable at least a week prior to that date, as all Outer-Planet Angles are. Wouldn’t hurt to mark our Calendar two weeks ahead, so we can train our Sensitivity to pick up on the Early Impacts. The next dozen Expositions are…

  • 8 February and 22 May 2023,
  • 31 January and 31 May 2024,
  • 27 January and 6 June 2025,
  • 26 January and 8 June 2026,
  • 29 January and 7 June 2027, and
  • 4 February and 2 June 2028.

I don’t differentiate Retrograde events from Direct events, but if you do, the May and June events are the Retrograde ones, the January and February events Direct. These twice-yearly Hints Exposing the New Energy will continue into the 2060s, another 40 years! The Old-Energy Propagandizers will probably do the same. Remind me before 2029 and I’ll extend the list.4

The actual (first) Waxing Square, when the New Energy moves into the Mainstream, occurs 23 June 2081. That’ll be a Can-Opener, so train your Children to train their Children (and another Generation or two if you’re already Old as Dirt – if you’re old as me, we’d be talking about our Great-Great-Great-Grandchildren) to have the Grand Opening of their New-Energy Respect-for-Nature Endeavor the week of 23 June 2081.5 The secret to success is to Find a Need and Fill It, right? Well, by the time you Pay Attention to 40 Expositions, you should have a pretty good idea of what sort of Need will “Suddenly” and “Surprisingly” (as Sudden and Surprising as a Murder of Tanks) Exist in volume in 2081, and whether or not it’s a Need that you and your Spawn will be Fulfilled by Filling.

  • 3 No, we aren’t suggesting that anyone Invest in the Oil and Gas Industry, or Factory Farming, or any other CO2 or Methane-Belching Endeavor. But we are suggesting that, if we could find a way to Fund our Lifestyle on the coattails of those Industries, without increasing their Pollution and without getting Attached or Co-opted, then we’d be able to Avoid having to add a Marketing Budget for our Project, because their Propaganda will do it for us. Servicing Air-Conditioners, for instance, or Affordable Storm-Proof and Fire-Proof Roofing and Siding.3a These Industries are Dying, but their Death could take 40-60 years or more. Just be sure not to get Emotionally Involved, so you can Leap Easily to your Real New-Energy Horse in mid-stream.
  • 3a When our Refrigerator quit Refrigerating, we called the local Repair-Any-Reefer guy, and he came out, pulled a cover off the inside of the freezer, told us that our coolant had all leaked out, that he could fix it but it would just leak again, suggested we just buy a new one, charged us $120, and walked out the door. If you had a business like that, maybe charging less but charging separately for travel expense, just think of how much New-Energy Business Development you could Fund while Living Well and Harmlessly.
  • 4 Or, if you have fancy software that will list of all of the 21st-Century Pholus-Quaoar Tropical Conjunctions at the push of a button, Let me Know and I’ll publish it here, giving you the credit of course (or not, if you prefer anonymity). Or, if you want to monetize it, I’ll advertise it here for you.
  • 5 Of course, everything will be Digital or Virtual by then, but the next several Generations will be more hip to that than we are.

Romancing Our (Other) Selves 2

March 2, 2022

Lots of Big Changes going on – let’s see if we can paint a Big Picture that isn’t too Cubist. Here are some of the Cubes…

  • The Invasion of Ukraine began when the symbol for Taking Full Responsibility and the symbol for Our Survival Instincts Merged in the process of Initiating a New 125-year Cycle.1 This tells us that Climate is only a bit player in the Global Climate Change Drama. The real issue is the Death of the Patriarchy, as it’s the Patriarchy’s Choice to Value Greed more than Compassion and insist on continuing to Profit by pumping the Air overfull with Poison. And it’s the Patriarchy’s Choice to Value Competition (to the Death in this case) more than Cooperation, and to Value Bravado more than Integrity.
  • The Death of the Patriarchy is echoed in the 2 March 2022 Beginning of a new 12-year Cycle when the symbol for Expansion Merges with the symbol for Abuse and Privilege.2 This new Cycle is about Simulating an Assault. The previous Cycle was about Protecting One’s Individual Rights. For the last dozen years, Western Culture has been attempting to Revise the way Men Abuse Women. For the next dozen years, we’ll be Revising the way Armies Abuse Noncombatants and Power Abuses Innocence. Or better yet, Eliminating both classes of Abuse, though that’ll probably take a lot more Evolution than Huperity can squeeze into a dozen years. Of course, we could always encounter a Tripping Point and Surge Forward in a Big Leap.
  • The whole issue of Male-Female Relationships, especially the Relationship between Action (Male) and Values (Female), is being Modified, on all levels – Intrapersonal (between our Inner Female and our Inner Male), Interpersonal, Cultural, and Global. The overall 31-month Male-Female Cycle is about Worshiping the Light.3 The recent amendments to it are about Revaluing the Feminine,4 and Compulsive Growth of Self-Love and Accessing Genius.5 If you’ve watched his speeches, you can see how Zelensky’s comfort with his Inner Female evokes spontaneous Tears from hardened politicians, translators, and journalists. Just one of his speeches caused Germany to reverse half a century of major Policy in a few hours.
  • This is the Most Important Thing that’s going on with Huperity and the Planet. While Pootin’ may not give up easily and shoot himself in the head this week, the World is done with Aggression, and done with Macho Patriarchy. The singular Opportunity for us is to Expand this Opening so that the World is done with Profiteering, done with Polluting, done with putting Profits over People, done with Exploiting the Planet, done with worshiping Greed and Arrogance, done with Kleptocracy and Kleptocrats at all levels, and done with Crucifying Peaceniks. If we can Identify what it is we’re seeing, and replicate it, we still have much work to do, but now we know how to do it. Pay Attention as well to Zelensky’s Neutrality. He’s Changing the World, but he’s not Attached to Outcomes. This is Critical.
  • The Harmonic Confusion that Lights Up February 19-28 with dozens of minor (and a few major) Angles, is about just that, Confusion.6 Confusion is the first stage of Growth. Our Intellectual Concept Set, most of which is Unconscious, is the Mental Bars in the Cage of our Unconscious Limitations that Protect us from our Held Emotions. When those Bars start to loosen, it Exposes us to Vulnerability, as we loose our Ability to warp Reality to fit our Preconceptions. We can certainly Avoid Growth, especially if it involves Big Ego Death, but at least we were given the Opportunity to slip between the bars and Expand our Horizons.

——————————————————————————————————–

  • 1 Quaoar Initiates Pholus, 21 February 2022, 8 Capricorn. Put Pootin’ in the role of Hercules promoting the Patriarchy and Zelensky in the role of Chiron Supporting the Matriarchy. Or put Pootin’ in the role of Pholus getting Dead, and Zelensky in the role of Hercules promoting the New Order. Either way, the Pholus-Chiron-Hercules Story is a good match for the Pootin’ Debacle. We could make it like Rashomon, with Shakespeare writing the dialogue. Pootin’s Chiron is at Capricorn 8, and it’s easy to see him giving up his Immortality and Choosing Death to end his Humiliation. He just won’t get the Constellation, except among the T.rump crowd. And Quaoar? Quaoar taught people how to Survive. Shooting other people isn’t the best Survival Technique, unless you plan to Eat them. The Quaoar role is played here by the New 5D order teaching people how to Survive by Collaborating.
  • 2 Nessus Initiates Jupiter, 15 Pisces. Previous Cycle, 17 Aquarius. It’s ironic (or not) that Jupiter is the Roman name for Jove, aka Zeus, promulgator of the Patriarchy. Nessus was a rapist, plain and simple. It was Hercules’s wife that he tried to rape. Yet Nessus was a Centaur, generally associated with the Matriarchy.
  • 3 Mars Initiates Venus (“Can-Opener”), 13 July 2021, 20 Leo (Ritual to the Sun), Conjunct Atropos (Expiry of Karma) and Square to Ka epaoka awela (Transcendence). The Current Cycle, spanning July 2021 through February 2024, is much longer than the usual 1翻 to 2 years.
  • 4 First subsidiary Conjunction (“Exposition”), 16 February 2022, 17 Capricorn (Female Nudist Letting Go of Inhibitions), Conjunct Arachne (Grandmother Spider, the Matrix or the Field, which is Feminine) and Vesta (Growth in Consciousness), Square to Sappho (Self-Love), Sextile to Nessus (Females Claiming Their Power), and Trine to Orcus (Breaking Obsolete Patterns).
  • 5 Second subsidiary Conjunction (“Confidence-Builder”), 6 March 2022, 1 Aquarius (California Adobe Mission), Conjunct Pluto (Compulsion) and Vesta (Growth in Consciousness), T-Square to Sappho (Selt-Love) and Moon (Instincts) and Veritas (Truth), and Opposite to Koronis (Coronavirus) and Cyllarus (Death). The chart also features a T-Square to Ixion (Forbidden Genius) and Klotho (New Beginnings) and the Galactic Center (Orders from Headquarters), from the Opposition between Eros (Erotica) and Aphrodite (Seduction).
  • 6 The players are Venus (Values) and Mars (Action), Hylonome (Codependence), Vesta (Growth in Consciousness), Lachesis (Terminable Karma), Arachne (the Field ), and Arrokoth (Huperity’s Misguided “Dominion” over Nature) in 21-24 Capricorn, Sappho (Self-Love) and Eris (Revelation of Denial ) in 22-24 Aries, and Narcissus (Self-Absorption) in 23 Libra. By far the most Confusing day was 23 February, when our Values, Growth, Self-Love, Dominion, Codependence, Denial, and Narcissism all Danced together cheek-to-cheek.

Full Moon Reboot

February 19, 2022

The 16 February 2022 Full Moon1 will impact the next two weeks. It’s primary message is that we need to Open Our Boundaries to the Mystery, and Let Ourself be Reborn into to Our Unlimited Potential.2 Camilla Blossom leads the way…

. . . . . . . . . . . This Is Ascension . . . . . . . . . . . .

Edited in Prisma app with Surf

“What the heck is going on?

“Even when you have clues, tools, awareness of the ascension process, it can catch you by surprise exhaustion, aches, pain, dizziness, and surfacing trauma. 
“On Sunday, I died!
 “Ascension is the death of our old self into higher states of awareness while still in our body. 
 “Every human and every being is becoming more crystalline…”

https://camillablossom.com/this-is-ascension/

By now we are deep into the 21 February 2022 Initiation of dwarf planet Pholus by dwarf planet Quaoar (Being Fully Responsive to our Survival Instincts, aka Earth Changes),3 the Beginning of a New 225-year Cycle during which we eventually come into Balance with our Fellow Earthlings of all stripes and spots,4 from the Mastodons to the Tigers to the Lions Manes to the Lichens to the Mitochondria and Beyond. Or else.

  • 1 8:56 am PST, in 28 Leo.
  • 2 In the Full Moon chart, Asteroid Pallas in 1 Aries (Where Everything Begins) T-Squares (Challenges) the Opposition between dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential ) and asteroid Klotho (New Beginnings) which is visiting the Galactic Center (Getting It’s Assignment from Headquarters).
  • 3 Quaoar Initiates Pholus at 7:03 pm PST, in 8 Capricorn, close enough to 2/22/2022 for Jazz. 2/22/2022 reduces to 12, the Hanged Man in Tarot, who hangs not by his Neck or Nails, but by his Heels, so he can See the World through New Eyes. He is the Pattern-Breaker, the KarmaBreaker. 12 reduces to 3, the symbol of The Empress, or Love with WisdomCompassion.
  • 4 Capricorn 8, “In a Sun-lit home domesticated birds sing joyously.”
  • The Full Moon Squares the Nodal Axis, at 28 of the Fixed Signs. It’s a Grand Cross (4 planets more or less equally spaced around the Zodiac), which we consider to be a Series of relatively Smallish Hassles that Complement One Another so that the End Result is Just Fine – as Long as We don’t Screw it Up by Intervening to “Fix” any of the Smallish Hassles. A Grand Cross is an Exercise in It Is What It Is, to see if we can Let It Be.
  • To spice it up good, the Full Moon Sun in Aquarius Channels (Conjoins) asteroid Damocles (Anxiety), while the North Node (Our Mission in the Lifetime) in Taurus (Materialism) Channels asteroid Ceres (Sustainability) and dwarf planet Sedna (Converting Fear to Power), and the South Node (Our Held Emotions, the Deepest Traumas in our Karma) in Scorpio (Fearlessness) Channels asteroids Karma itself (Our Karma), Atropos (Expired Karma5), and Ka epaoka awela (Transcendence). That’s a mouthful.

It means that the Survivability of our Materiality Relies on the Transcendence of our Karma.

  • 5 Karma does not Grasp Us, We Grasp It. The nature of Karma is that it’s What We Expect, because we’ve been living with it for so many Lifetimes. By definition, it’s Older than “We” are. Well, What We Expect is What We Get, when our Expectations are Unconscious. So even when Karma reaches its Expiry Date, it doesn’t automatically get off our back. We have to Actively Let Go Of It, by making it Conscious, Noticing it when it begins to recur, and Choosing a New Alternative. Any Alternative will do, till we Break the Addiction. Then we can begin Choosing Alternatives that are Self-Supporting rather than Self-Sabotaging.

Asteroid Karma, by the way, left Scorpio and entered Sagittarius yesterday, 18 February (10:50 pm PST), meaning that we’re shifting from The Way Out of Our Karma Is Through, to The Way Out of our Karma Is To Let It Go. Whew! What Timing! Have we ever been Feeling this!

“Lady Nada oversees a retreat, which is situated in the etheric realms above Lake Titicaca at the border of Bolivia and Peru. Ascended Masters Mary (known as Mother Mary), Quan Yin, Pallas Athena, Lady Venus, and Lady Portia (Saint Germain’s twin flame) are all working closely together in that retreat. From this place in Bolivia, they distribute powerful feminine energies to our planet in order to balance the distortions still existing between the masculine and feminine energies. There is a strong emphasis on restoring the balance between the female and male polarities within ourselves and within our relationships and in our world.

“Many of these female masters are working to help us with this task; it is so vitally imperative for the Ascension of humanity. Unless humanity begins manifesting more balance between the masculine and feminine expressions of power in the world, we will not easily experience the changes in consciousness which must take place in these next years. The long awaited Golden Age can only manifest when divine balance between the male and female polarities becomes a reality on the planet.”

–Aurelia Louse Jones, The Seven Sacred Flames, p.162

Which brings us to the other Big Deal happening late this month and early next. Venus and Mars normally Convene a new Cycle every year and a half or so. The Current Cycle began in mid-July 2021 in 20 Leo, “Zuni Indians perform a ritual to the Sun: A return to the glorification of natural energies.” The Initiation Celebrates the Transcendence of Karma.6

  • 6 The Initiation Conjoined asteroid Atropos (the Expiration of Karma), and the only Challenge was a naked Square to asteroid Ka epaoka awela (Transcendence). The Initiation Enjoyed a Grand Trine (Great Blessings) with asteroids Eros (Eros) and Veritas (Truth). Veritas Opposed asteroids Klotho (New Beginnings) and Panacea (Healing), and that Opposition made a Grand Cross by Squaring the Opposition from the Sun (Essence) to dwarf planet Hylonome (Codependence) and asteroid Arrowkoth.
  • Arrowkoth, meaning Sky or Cloud or Up There, is the name currently given to the iceball that the New Horizons spacecraft perused after it finished checking out Pluto. It was known as Ultima Thule then, meaning Way Out in the Tules, but that name was replaced when it was revealed to have white supremacist connections. In its Discovery chart – it was Discovered at 10 Capricorn, “An Albatross feeding from the hand of a sailor: The overcoming of fear and its rewards” – it Conjoins Pluto (Compulsion) and asteroid Koronis (Coronavirus? ) and Opposes asteroids Moira (Fate and Choice) and Cyllarus (Death). It also includes an intriguing Mutable Grand Cross, which we’ll fill in later.

Well, Venus and Mars Convened again on 16 February in 17 Capricorn (“A repressed woman finds a psychological release in nudism: The escape from bondage to social inhibitions and a reliance on the wisdom of the body”), and they’ll do it again on 6 March in 1 Aquarius (“An old adobe mission in California: The power inherent in all great human works to endure far beyond the workers’ life spans”). What’s going on? At seven months it’s too early for a New Cycle, so why are they Convening now? Turns out it’s the last two thirds of a much-delayed Triple Conjunction, so these two events will fill out and modify the Ritual to the Sun of the actual Initiation. The Current Cycle doesn’t end till 2/22/2024, two years past our 2/22/2022 milestone or millstone.

So, relying only on the Sabian Symbols and not opening the charts yet, Using the Wisdom of the Body to Escape Bondage to Social Limitations in our Relationships and Reversing the Enduring Taint of the Patriarchy in our Relationships that was illustrated by the Genocide of the California Indians by the Spanish now become part of Celebrating the Transcendence of Karma. Bear in mind that the most important Relationship we have is the one with ourself, the one between our own Inner Female and our own Inner Male.

The Inner Female carries our Values. The Inner Male Structures our Life. When in Balance, the Inner Male would Structure Life around the Values carried by the Inner Female. Male Energy on its own would Structure Life around Competition. Female Energy would structure Life around Collaboration. In the Relationship Structures we’ve inherited from Western Social Limitations, and in the Taint of Genocide that’s Endured far beyond the original Patriarchy, it’s the Other Way Around, isn’t it. Male Competition Energy substitutes for our Values, while Collaborative Female Energy is tied up in Service to the Structure of our Day-to-Day Life. Here’s a contrast…

Ego Edges

September 6, 2021

We’re still trying to satisfy two Goals with one Blog – describing what’s going on on the Planet while gradually teaching astrology, since anything you Learn about astrology will greatly deepen your Experience of Life on Earth and your Adeptness with it. In this post, read through it first while Suspending Disbelief and ignoring the footnotes. Then go back and reread the whole post, exploring the footnotes as you go. Even if you have no interest in Learning anything about astrology, there is much to gain by simply skimming the footnotes to see if anything catches your eye. Skimming may not get us a PhD, but when we’ve skimmed the same or similar material many times, a lot more has sunk in than we Realize.

One of the greatest Toxins that we Encounter is Certainty. My training as a Psychic was rudimentary. I had fabulous Teachers, I just didn’t pursue it very far because there were too many other Threads going on at the time, but one of the first things I learned was that an easy way to access our Intuition is to Ask ourself, What If I Did Know?

It’s a great technique, and it almost always serves us, but without additional Discernment Skills, it serves our Heart’s Truth, not necessarily the Etheric Truth, and not necessarily Someone Else’s Heart’s Truth. Our Heart’s Truth is a Reliable Guide for Avoiding Self-Sabotage, but it doesn’t Clear our Limitations. Of course, for most everyone reading this, your Heart’s Truth will include a Life Mission of Clearing your Limitations, but that can’t help but compete with other, more trivial matters, such as Survival, or Getting Bald and High…

We’ve just been through a couple of weeks of Fear and Anger,1 and we’re already diving into another week that isn’t per se about Fear and Anger, but is by its nature heavily encumbered with Fear and Anger.2 We’ll talk more about this Forbidden Genius of ours soon, but I want to introduce Them through a prominent (though subtle) feature of the 22 August Full Moon…3

1 The 30 August 2021 Station of Sedna [Converting Fear to Power] in 30 Taurus, stretched out by the 30 August-3 September Out-of-Bounds Moon [Excess Emotionality Covered by Deep and Wide Culturally-Supported Justification, AKA Focusing on our Thoughts about our Emotions rather than on how and where we Feel the Emotions in our Body]. Can we tell the Difference between our Emotions and our Thoughts about them?

Our Thoughts about our Emotions are Mental Gibberish serving only to prop up our Old Ego, Prevent Rebirth, and Maintain our Karmic Limitations. Emotion Itself on the other hand, is the Portal to our Sacred Intuition, to our Future, and potentially to our Liberation from Karmic Limitation (if we have the Fortitude to tackle our Thoughts about the Emotions that We’d Rather Die Than Feel ).

If we can Learn this Discernment1a in this Lifetime, it will be the Pinnacle of Cosmic Success that will Change our Karma forever. Our fellow Gronabixoleans won’t recognize us when we return to our Home Galaxy. Discerning our Emotions (Pisces) from our Thoughts about them (Aquarius) is the Central Lesson of the Pisces-Aquarius Cusp, and if we don’t Learn it here we could be Stuck in Piscean Victimhood for possibly another 25 thousand years, till the next Progressed Pisces-Aquarius Cusp rolls around. Won’t that be Fun. Thank the Goddess that Linear Time is an Illusion.

1a We also have to Learn that Emotions aren’t Ours or Theirs, any more than the Weather is. Emotions are Independent Energies that Visit us, and can Attach to our Egos like Leeches and Suck Away our Life Force. But they also Serve us as a Portal to our Sacred Intuition. We Feel and Dismiss them in a flash, till we get Stuck on Our Thoughts about Them. If we make Decisions based on our Thoughts about Them, we Create sticky new Karma that can follow us around the Multiverse like a hungry Coyote, just Out of Sight. But we know they’re There, don’t we.

2 The 12 September (5:07 am PDT) Station of Ixion [Our Forbidden Genius] in 30 Sagittarius, the same Degree (in different Signs) as the Sedna Station and the Full Moon. When planets are in the same or nearby Degrees, the Interactions between their Domains of Impact are much more Intense. The Full Moon, the Sedna Station, and the Ixion Station span three weeks, but the Unconscious doesn’t Live in Linear Time. There in the Universe beyond the Bounds of our Ego (which Universe, if you haven’t noticed, is usually very much Larger than we are), everything is Simultaneous. Natives of North America (nee Turtle Island) Believe that everything that ever happened in a place is still going on there. If you bother to Look for it, you can Feel it.

3 In 30 Aquarius. The New and Full Moons primarily impact the 2-4 weeks following them. Find the complete chart for the 22 August Full Moon in the Expanding into Fear II post.

…namely, we have a Challenge between a double symbol of Rebirth and a double symbol of Death.4 This is not a Duel, but a more nuanced Conflict with many combatants and collaborators and involved spectators who have Skin in the Game.5 Our Self-Confidence is deeply Involved,6 as is The Integration of Feminine Power into our Life.7

4 Asteroid Klotho [Beginning New Fateful Adventures] Conjunct [Merged With] dwarf planet Haumea [Rebirth in an Unformed Molten State] on the Birth side, Square to [Challenged by – drawn as the shorter red line] two Strangers we’ve added to fill Vacancies, asteroid Requiem [Respect for Death] Merged With dwarf planet Cyllarus [Death in Combat] on the Death side. Centaur Cyllarus was Killed in the battle that Wounded Chiron.

5 The Square is part of a Grand Cross [Difficult and Complex Process involving many Related Issues – four planets equally spaced ’round the Zodiac, shown by the red square with a cross in the middle].

6 The other two corners of the Grand Cross are dwarf planet Chariklo [Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt ] – Chiron’s wife, and…

7 Two Fixed Stars, Al Rescha [Bringing two disparate Concept Sets together to Create Deeper Understanding] and Mirach [Harmony, Receptivity, Intuition, Magnetism, Collaboration].

Remember our first sentence? When we’re in a Life-and-Death Struggle, Certainty is the Order of the Day. We’re Certain that the Oxymoronavirus will kill us if we Let It. Or Wait! No, the Vaccine will Certainly Kill us! Meanwhile, Global Warming is Killing us, drowning some of us while we sleep. The Emperor has no Clouds. What is it that the Howlers Fear Most? Loss of Freedom, all seem to say.

Freedom to continue Life As It Was Known. Freedom to Blame the Threat to Survival on Viruses, Vaccines, Abortions, Masks, Political Opponents, anything which will Focus Attention on those Thoughts about the Fear that Life will Change drastically, because if the Caterwauling is loud enough, Influencing the Outcome of those Issues may be Possible. Won’t it be a shock when it’s discovered that Stopping Abortions and Vaccines and Viruses and Political Opponents doesn’t Stop Floods and Wildfires and Freezeouts. Won’t it be a shock when parents who risked their Children’s Lives sending them back to School discover that the Schooling that the Surviving kids received is worthless because it was only Relevant to Destroying the Earth.

In any four-cornered astrological Configuration, the Diagonals between the corners provide useful information. In this Death-Rebirth Configuration the Diagonals are Oppositions, usually signifying that two Concepts are Arguing, or if we aren’t in Resistance, that they’re willing to Cooperate.

The Rebirth corner Dances with the Integration of Feminine Power corner.8 If we’re indeed on the Cusp of Letting the Patriarchy Burn Itself Out, this will be a Delightful Dance. If we’re Terrified that our Investments in the Patriarchy are Bankrupt, then we’re likely to be Screaming into our Zoom Meetings that it’s Imperative to Bring Back Business-As-Usual, because that’s More Important (to them) than how many people are Dying.

The Death corner Dances with Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt.9 If we’re Confident we’re on our Path, then we’ll Embrace the Ego Death. If we’re in Self-Doubt, our Fear of Death will probably be Lit Up, and we might even be contemplating Physical Death.

But it’s not that simple. If we look closely we can see that both of these Oppositions are Mystery Schools.10 In a Mystery School we Learn something completely Surprising and Unexpected from the Dance, something that’s not accessible to the two-dimensional mind. If we’re Open to it, that is, and if we Avoid trying to “Figure It Out.” The Insights available are not accessible by the Mind, as they’re more multidimensional that the Mind is able to Grok. We have to be Mindful of the Presence of Thinking, Thank it and Bless It, and Open our Intuition instead.

There is something Profound to Learn, available to us over the coming week, about the Relationship between (Ego) Death and Confidence or Doubt, and something Profound for us to Learn about the Relationship between our Rebirth and our Integration of Feminine Power. Astrology does give hints about where to look for these Insights.11 Death and Confidence-Doubt are somehow tied up in this Adventure with Being More Open to Embracing our Hidden Genius and Acknowledging How We Were Punished For It in our Youth. Rebirth and Feminine Power are somehow bound up in this Workshop with Acknowledging our Guilt and Tapping It Out.

8 Klotho-Haumea Opposite Mirach-Al Rescha.

9 Requiem-Cyllarus Opposite Chariklo.

10 These Oppositions are both Yin Gates. The Klotho-Haumea to Mirach-Al Rescha Opposition is surrounded by a big blue “Golden” Rectangle, Golden because the ratio between the length of the sides and the length of the ends is the “Golden Angle” of Sacred Geometry fame, an Angle that is Replete in Nature. Its corners are Karma, Nemesis [Guilt], the Fixed Star Scheat [Creative Freedom from Conventional Thinking], and Sedna.

The Chariklo to Requiem-Cyllarus Opposition is also enclosed in a Golden Rectangle, but it’s drawn in thinner blue lines. It connects Ixion et al, Moon-Jupiter [Expanding our Instincts], Chaos-Asbolus [Intuitive Insight into our Unlimited Potential], and Sun-Thereus [The Places in our Essence where we’re Willing to Wrestle with Bears].

11 In the six diagonals embedded in each of the bisected Golden Rectangles…

For Rebirth-Feminine Power they’re the Karma-Scheat and Nemesis-Sedna Oppositions, Klotho-Haumea’s Quincunxes to Scheat and to Sedna, and Mirach-Al Rescha’s Quincunxes to Nemesis and Karma. Quincunxes are 5-Sign Angles, drawn in green lines.

For Death-Confidence they’re Chaos-Asbolus’s Opposition to Ixion-Pholus-GC, the Sun-Thereus Opposition to Moon-Jupiter, Chariklo’s Quincunxes to Chaos-Asbolus and Sun-Thereus, and Requiem-Cyllarus’s Quincunxes to Jupiter-Moon and Ixion-Pholus-GC.

These many Relationships are for Meditation, not Analysis – that’s 12 Meditations. If you’re up for that, more Power to you! Remember that Quincunxes represent Questions, not Answers or Statements. And Remember that in a Yin Gate, Oppositions will not be Arguments or Collaborations, but Paradoxes, like Zen Koans. What’s the Sound of One Bear Wrestling while Expanding? might be an example (Thereus Opposite Jupiter). The Insights in these Gordian Knots will be Personal, not Global. If you have any natal planets on Cusps, the Rewards from this Exploration may be Immense.

There Must Be Even More

March 8, 2020

I love Dr. Chu’s Metaphor in the previous post. In case you didn’t listen through her video, she was saying that the general approach of allopathic medicine is like stepping on a Cat’s tail. Every time you do that, the Cat opens its mouth (to howl). Modern medicine debates whether to sew the Cat’s mouth shut, or feed it dumbcane, without considering lifting its foot.

It’s the same with our Karmic Self-Sabotage – we’re enormously Creative about how to Ameliorate our Suffering, but we’re unable or unwilling to take our foot off of our own tail. Many of us are so used to being the Victim of our Self-Sabotaging Habits that we don’t even Realize that the Perp is our own foot. Well, this is the weekend toNotice, and to lift our foot.

Apart from all the Action that the previousThere Must Be More post spoke of – Action in the 6 March 2020 astrology for (the Station of dwarf planet Chaos in) the neighborhood of 25 Degrees (of any Sign) – there’s also Strong astrology Lit Up for planets around 5 Degrees. There are three primary Poster Children…

  • Big-Time Bad Karma around Global Warming.
  • The Depressive Downside of Codependence.
  • The Soul Meets the Ego’s Resistance as It Descends.

Let’s take them one at a time…

Big-Time Bad Karma around Global Warming

Two Important dwarf planets have been Dancing with one another for several years, getting more and more Intimate as they do. They Consummate their Dance on 23 February 2022, after getting Perilously Close (within 70 Arcseconds) in early April 2021 (they’re 翹 of a Degree apart as we speak). One of these dwarf planets symbolizes our Survival Instincts (Quaoar), and the other represents Taking Full Responsibility (Pholus).

The 2022 Initiation occurs in 8 Capricorn, “In a Sun-lit home, domesticated birds sing joyously: The wholesome happiness which subservience to the ideals and patterns of a well-established culture brings to those who accept them unreservedly.” Isn’t that scary – that’s how we got where we are. with everyone Singing Joyously about the Glories of an allegedly Dead Planet that can be Dissected at will for personal gain.

Of course, if we have a Culture that Respects and Reanimates the Natural World by then, that’d be great. What do you suppose the odds of that are? If we Allow ourselves to move to 5D, they should be pretty good.

Their Dance is the Obvious astrological correlate of Global Climate Change and all of the other Efforts that the Industrial Era has made, and continues to Try to make, Consciously or otherwise, to Destroy the Habitability of our Planet. The Coronavirus is only one example…

It’s Important to distinguish Responsibility from Blame. Blame looks backwards to Assign Cause. Responsibility looks forward to Improve Outcomes. When we look at the Mythology behind our astrosymbol for Responsibility (Pholus), we see that he got Dead by failing to take all Possibilities into account. In our earlier There Must Be More post we talked about Trusting New Information that will take us Beyond Our Limitations. That’s why we talk about Taking Full Responsibility.

What does this mean for us? It means we need to Ask ourself, What are my Survival Instincts telling me that I am Denying? It won’t be Easy to Answer that Honestly, because our Ego will try to Intercede in its own behalf and try to continue Denying anything that threatens to lean toward Facing Emotions that We’d rather Die than Feel.

The Pholus-Quaoar Conjunction [our Response to our Survival Instincts] is very close to the South Node [our Held Emotions] in the 6 March Chaos-Station chart.

The South Node crosses Quaoar on 8-9 March, and Pholus on 13 March, both Initiations in 5 Capricorn, “Indians on the warpath – while some men row a well-filled canoe, others in it perform a war-dance: The mobilization of physical and emotional energies in a spirit of conquest.” These are roughly 17翻-year Cycles. So who are the Indians here? Greta’s team?

The South Node crosses Ixion [our Forbidden Genius] on 19 June in 30 Sagittarius,”The Pope blessing the faithful.” Ixion also Conjoins Pholus-Quaoar-South Node. This crossing, and the 16-year Cycle it Initiates, should Teach us a great deal about how our Forbidden Genius was Forbidden.

Expect it to be Karmic – ie, not Present Moment, no matter how Horrible it Feels. If we manage to Stay Open during the Ego Deaths associated with this crossing, we may be able to Let Go of the Forbidden part and get on with Healing the Planet.

It’s intriguing that in this chart drawn for Pacific Time, this symbol for Climate Change et al (Pholus-Quaoar-South Node Conjunction) is also closely Conjunct to the astrosymbol for our Community (the Midheaven), which of course depends on Time of Day and hence Longitude. I’m Wondering if this has anything to do with the fact that the Epicenter of Coronavirus Activity in the US (Kirkland WA) lies in the Pacific Time Zone. It’s also intriguing that Kirkland, Milan, and Wuhan are each Separated by one third of the Globe.

We’ve run out of time, as I try to lift my foot off my habit of burning the candle at both ends. We’ll look at…

  • The Depressive Downside of Codependence (Lilith-Chiron).
  • The Soul Meets the Ego’s Resistance as It Descends (Venus-Karma-Atopos-Uranus).

…tomorrow.
