Orcus and Hopi I

May 18, 2017

Our next Adventure is the sequential Stations of dwarf planet Orcus (Oath-Making and -Breaking) and asteroid Hopi (Respect for All Things).  Both Stations occur just prior to 6am PST, Orcus on 21 May, and Hopi on 22 May.  This will be a particularly fascinating combination of Energies, because most of our Limiting Beliefs were founded by Oaths, Oaths always Power-Over one side or the other of some Duality, and Respect for All Things means the Absence of Judgment.

The result of the Merging of two such contrasting Energies will be laden with Paradox, and Paradox of the exact nature that Spiritual Progress is paved with.  Remember that limiting our Commitments as much as possible is a prerequisite to Yintegrity.  And to be Self-Sovereign, rather than Slaves to our Archetypes, we need to Renounce all of our Oaths.  Being thus Free, we’ll be able to follow our Instinct and Intuition without constraint.

You would think, for instance, that an Orcus-Hopi astroevent would simply be a great time to Swear to Respect All Things.  But that would Betray Respect for Ourself, as it would inhibit our Freedom to Follow our Instincts and Intuitions.  Paradox is not accessible by the logical mind. so we just have to Accept it as a Mystery.

Paradox, as we’ve said, is the realm of the Yin Gate Configuration, a Golden Rectangle bisected on the short side by a third Opposition.  By “coincidence,” there happen to be three Yin Gates in the Orcus and Hopi Station charts.  Here’s an example of one, in the Orcus Station chart…

The Orcus Station itself T-Squares (Mastery through Challenge) one axis of the Golden Rectangle (which is the blue box).  “Coincidentally,” the axis that it T-Squares is the axis between Lilith (Self-Sovereignty itself) on the right and a Conjunction of Ceres (Sustainability) and Mnemosyne (Memory) on the left.  The implication is that We Already Know How to Sustain Self-Sovereignty, all we have to do is Remember That We Know.

Another “coincidence” – one axis of each of the three Yin Gates is T-Squared by one of the Stationary planets.  Such redundancy convinces us that the Universe is serious about this message.

The Challenge is our accumulated Oaths, and the Archetypes we still cling too.  Remember that Karma is dead; our Karma does not CLING TO US, we CLING TO IT.  Are you about to do something that you’ve done before?  Do it differently.  I was about to go get a half-glass of Beer, so to break up the Pattern I’ll do a couple of pirouettes between here and refrigerator.  Not that a half-glass of Beer is a big Pattern of mine, but a trip to the refrigerator certainly is! 

Surprisingly and Remarkably, each pirouette produced a big surge of Joy.  I may adopt a new Pattern!  If you spot an old fart pirouetting down the road, say Hi.  Wait, that’s an Oath!  Revert!

The Opposition in the Yin Gate itself (the one in the center of the Golden Rectangle – I know, it’s both blue and Golden – blue because that’s how we draw Energy lines representing Grace, and Golden because the ratio of the sides is the Golden Ratio of Sacred Geometry fame) is between asteroid Veritas (Truth) and dwarf planet Hylonome (Letting Go of Archetypes) – yet another redundant repetition of our basic theme here, which is about Facing the Truth that Allowing ourself to be Directed by our Unconscious Patterns not only Inhibits our Spiritual Progress, it also generates a good deal of Self-SabotagePirouettes are in our Future whether by Oath or Instinct!

The other diagonal of this Golden Rectangle is an Opposition between asteroids Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) and Nemesis (Ego Death).  Lordy Lordy, another redundant repetition!  Well, most of us will have Ego invested in our Unconscious Limiting Beliefs – that’s how we get them to stick.  Of course we all want to be good little girls and boys, and if Granny told us over and over again that good little girls and boys don’t do that, then there you have it – Ego Investment.  

So you remember how to do Ego Death, right?  You reinterpret “I’d rather DIE” to actually be “I’D rather die,” and them you just let it happen.  Egos are like Moles (the ones in your yard) – if you ever do succeed in killing one, another one will pop up to replace it before you can say “Hooray, I’m Freee at Last!”   Chagrin (or Terror) over Ego Death is totally wasted; new Egos are a dime a dozen.  When someone tells you they gave up their Ego when they were Enlightened, that’s their Ego talking. 

You Embrace Confusion as the First Stage of Growth in Consciousness, which heralds less Slavery to Archetypes and less Self-Sabotage (and another sign of Ego Death).  You might be driving or walking a few blocks from home, and suddenly realize that you’re in a very different World, even while you know exactly where you are.  You might suddenly forget all your passwords, or your spouse’s name, because without warning you’ve regressed to age 6 or 12 or 32 or Atlantis or the time you met Genghis Khan, when the Steppes were in bloom.

As with Curiosity, you want to Break all Habits (Oaths!) to try to Understand.  Trying to Understand means you’re scrambling back to your Olde Ego, and losing all the benefits of Psychic and Spiritual Growth.  Confusion and Curiosity are Beautiful just as they are, they aren’t problems to be solved or reasons to exercise that big glucose-burner in your skull.  They’re glorious states to relax into.  They will take you to Heaven if you let them.

This is only one part of the Orcus-Station chart; we’ll take up other parts in the next installment.  For now, notice that the Orcus Station happens to be Conjunct asteroid Karma – yet one more confirmation of our basic theme of Liberation.  The Initiation of Karma by Orcus already occurred, in mid-November of last year, at 10 Virgo, “”Two heads looking out and beyond the shadows: The growth of true understanding, born out of the transcendence of duality even while immersed in the world of duality.” 

The Validations just keep on coming!  The Karma-Orcus Exposition (Retrograde Conjunction) occurred in early March, and the Confidence-Builder (final crossing) will happen on 30 May.  By then we should be feeling pretty good about how much Karmic baggage we’ve been putting out on the curb for recycling.

The Rose above the Sky

May 9, 2017

Let’s look a little more at that Grand Quintile.  Here’s one without all of the other Action in its chart…

It’s a Pentagram, traditional symbol of Magic.  It’s actually pointing down, which sometimes implies Black Magic.  But as we said in the previous post, the whole diagram will turn upside down in twelve hours, so there’s little meaningfully permanent about the pointing.  If there’s anything to the Black part, it’s bad luck or evil intent for the West Coast of the US, as the chart is even rotated for other locations at the same time.

The Full Moon occurs around 3pm PDT, which is the equivalent of 2pm PST.  Since Hawaii is two hours earlier than Pacific Time, the Sun will be close to directly overhead in Hawaii – and the Pentagram will be pointing straight up.

The classic symbol of five-symmetry is the Rose Family, which includes this Apple (a future Fuji), blooming as we speak…

The Rose and Pentagram have always been associated with Venus and the Heart, because the Zodiacal locations of the Heliacal Rising of Venus over eight years plot a perfect Hexagram.  The “Heliacal Rising” of a planet or Star occurs when it first becomes visible again after being hidden by being too close to the Sun.  The ancients measured the seasons of the year by keeping track of the Heliacal Rising of various Stars.

I read today that the process of Learning floods the brain with a particular protein, and that this protein confuses the brain’s reward center, disrupting Addictions.  The same can apply to Archetypes, since our Karmic or Childhood Programming Unconsciously expects a positive reward when we’re Obedience to an Archetype we’re Entranced to.  Liberation from an Archetype is by far the most important type of Learning, since it’s Life-Changing.  And Entrancing someone to a Archetype, such as Nationalism, would be a good case of Black Magic.

Let’s isolate the Grand Decile.  A Decile Angle is one tenth of the Zodiacal Loop, so a Grand Decile has ten planets equally spaced ’round the Circle…

If that reminds you of a Rose it’s no coincidence; with five-symmetry the double Rose has five petals in each layer.  Fortune, the Tenth Harmonic, is related to Learning mostly through Liberation from Archetypes, as Liberation allows us to respond Neutrally to circumstances and Witness Reality more clearly.  Left-brain Learning, which involves only the accumulation of Information and not Liberation, also clogs the brain’s reward center – Jung always said that people whose primary approach to Life is through Thinking, are irrational, because not being in touch with their Heart, they Act according to their thoughts rather than their Values.

There is a reason why astrology considers the Fifth Harmonic a “Minor” Angle, aside from the fact that you can’t instantly spot them because they share the same Degree of their respective Signs, as you can with “Major” Angles.  It’s much more difficult to gain Power Over someone who runs their Life from their Heart rather than their “Head.”  Thinking is usually associated with the Head because Left-Brain Mythology attributes thought to the brain.  In Energy Reality, thinking is assigned to the Third Chakra, the Solar Plexus, not the brain.

In order to Power-Over a “Head”-centered person, all we need to do is match their Archetypal Programming with our Propaganda or Rhetoric.  To Power-With a Heart-centered person, we need to demonstrate that we share their Values.  We may be able to direct our Propaganda to their Values, but a Heart-centered person is much more likely to be in touch with their Intuition and Instincts, which would allow them to know our Intentions.

The more we uses our Quintiles to Break Free of our Archetypes, the more directly we Witness Reality.  When we’re Entranced by an Archetype, that’s all we see – the rest of the Universe is projected onto the outer screen of the Archetype.  The more Archetypes entangle us, the less we see of what goes on behind the curtain.  It’s the greater detection of Reality which allows the Tenth Harmonic to represent Manifestation – which is more difficult when we can’t see the levers and pulleys and cobwebs and Energies that connect the elements of hardcopy Reality.

Crystals do not exhibit five-symmetry, but there are several Powerful Stones named after the Rose, such as this Rose Quartz, a Stone representing the Heart…

Another “Minor” Angle that we use is the Quincunx, which connects two planets that are five Signs apart, or five twelfths of the way ’round the Loop.  The Fifth Harmonic is Learning, and the Twelfth Harmonic Pattern-Breaking, and the Quincunx combines the two – into Curiosity.  This is the source of Power in the Yin Gate – which, with it’s four Quincunxes arranged in two adjacent Xs, introduces us to Paradox or Non-Dual thinking.

And while the Grand Quintile, if used properly, can lead us to Archetype-Busting, the “Grand Unx” (an “Unx” is one twelfth of something), with twelve planets equally spaced around the Zodiac, will almost certainly Bust up some Archetypes and other Addictions.  Here’s a look at the 16 May chart, when the Moon and the Nodes add the final two aligned Oppositions to the four in our Gods and Goddesses Full Moon chart (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/05/07/gods-and-goddesses-full-moon/) to complete a loose Grand Unx…

We’ve drawn in the Unxes and Quincunxes in light green.  From the Perspective of traditional astrology, there’s a problem with this chart.  The twelve positions vary from 22 to 30 Degrees; that’s eight Degrees of Sensitivity, a span that traditional Astrology would only allow for Major Angles in birth charts.  Even in birth charts, the maximum Sensitivity permitted for Minor Angles is three Degrees.

Well, recall that many times we’ve said that Permanent Curiosity (as in Awe and Wonder rather than “Gotta Figure It Out”) is akin to Love because both eschew Judgment.  If we can break our Addiction to Figuring It Out, the Quincunx actually leads us to this space of Non-Judgment, aka Neutrality, aka Enlightenment, aka Ascension.  Maybe we should call it “Unconditional” Curiosity, to parallel Unconditional Love.  In a Relationship, Love dies when Curiosity is replaced by Certainty and Judgment.

So in our Perspective, there’s nothing Minor about a Quincunx – it’s one of the more Major Angles on Reality.  We can say the same for the the Archetype-Busting Quintile and Unx, and for that matter the Septile.  The Septile (Seventh Harmonic) is about Timing – not wasting our Energy when the moment is not ripe, and Acting Decisively when it is – like France’s own new “JFK” apparently has.  We hope he fares better than JFK did.  Well, it turns out that Timing is critical in everything, including Curiosity and Unconditional Love.  It’s Timing that resolves the unsettling apparent Conflicts between Unconditional Love of Other and Unconditional Love of Self.

So we don’t argue that this chart may not be fully descriptive of the Present Moment come 16 May.  But if the Unx and Quincunx are Major Angles, as we aver, then we regard the chart as fully applicable to Projects begun under its watch, including the Rebirths that have been scheduled for us.

Lots of Convergence in the Channeled material this week…

http://danielscranton.com/your-new-abilities-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

All about Making (or Taking) it Easy.  At first glance though the Mercury Station chart (3 May 10am PDT) looks pretty complicated…

We’ll deconstruct it in a minute; for now, notice the orange lines forming a “bowl.”  This is the beginnings of a Grand Quintile (Excellent Opportunity for Learning) that pretty much dominates the 10 May Full Moon chart as the Sun moves into the Vacant fifth position in the Configuration. 

We’ll talk more about that soon; for now, just be Alert that whatever Difficulty or Confusion you Encounter is really about Learning.  We can Learn all manner of “information” without encountering Discomfort, but Real Learning, as in Growth of Consciousness, is often accompanied by Difficulty or Confusion or both.  The Grand Quintile tells us not to try to Puzzle it Out, but to just be Open to Big Change.  Big Change always introduces the Unknown, and Puzzling it Out can only rearrange the deck chairs.

The rest of the chart is actually two Yin GatesBased on our recent Experience we probably think Yin Gates are pretty common, but they actually aren’t.  Two at once is fairly remarkableThe Spiritual Function of a Yin Gate is to give us the Opportunity to Embrace Paradox – that is, to escape the tyranny of the Patriarchal “left brain” and witness the World and the Mysteries more Wholistically.  Again, more admonitions not to try to make Logical Sense out of what we Experience, but rather to make Esoteric Sense out of it.

Let’s tease out the two Yin Gates

First, here’s the Rebirth into Yintegrity Yin Gate.  A Yin Gate is an Opposition (long red line) at the center of a Golden Rectangle (blue box).  Normally an Opposition represents a Duality; a Yin Gate Asks us to Pay Attention to the Coin rather than the heads or tails.  This one has Haumea (Rebirth) on one end and the Merger of Stationary Mercury (Paying Attention), Uranus (our Soul Self), and Eris (the Compulsion to Live our Truth) on the other.

The latter threesome represents YintegrityYangtegrity is Doing what we said we were going to do, no matter what.  Yintegrity is Doing what we darn well Feel like doing, moment to moment – this is, Trusting our Instincts and Intuitions more than we Trust our Commitments.  Of course in Yintegrity we’d Minimize our Commitments, Renegotiate often, and make quality Amends where Renegotiation wasn’t possible and the Relationship was worth keeping – we’d prefer both Yin- and Yang-tegrity to One or the Other (or neither), though we might emphasize One more than the Other while we Learn how they Differ and Practice each One.

Second there’s the Stealing Energy from Fear and Investing It in Self-Love Yin Gate, with Sedna (Fear) on one end and Sappho (Self-Love) on the other.  We’ve had Experience with this one, and discussed it at length, earlier this year.  Suddenly the Channelings – Pushing the Ease Button, Trusting Ourself – start to make Sense, eh?

In each picture we’ve drawn in the rest of the Configuration with lighter lines.  Notice that the two Yin Gates are connected by a Grand Cross (the tilted red square with the X in the center).  That just means that they’re tightly Integrated, giving us the Opportunity to Practice Yintegrity in the context of Self-Love and vice versa.

It’s worth Paying Attention to the other two Oppositions – Chaos (Unlimited Potential) Opposite Saturn-Ixion (The Most Important Thing is to Recover our Abandoned Genius), which is on the Galactic Center (Orders from HQ) and asteroid Hopi (Respect for All Things) Opposite Chiron (Healing the Unhealable). 

If you’re Estranged from anyone, this would be an excellent time to Clear the Conflict, even if it’s “just” to Finish Business and Move On.  And there’s an excellent chance that what you discovered you couldn’t stand about them, or the unacceptable critique they made of you, are big neon signs pointing to your Abandoned Genius.  You don’t need to discuss that with them if it’s not Safe to do so, but you do need to spend time Exploring it on your own or with Safe Friends, because your Abandoned Genius is part of the missing link that will Heal the Unhealable elements of our Huperity, of our misuse of the Home Planet, and of the Despair we can’t help but feel about it.

Re-listen or Re-read the Channelings we began the post with; with a little Effort you’ll see the footprints of your Abandoned Genius in them.

This week I was invited to Attend a Conference on Sustainability put on by Native Americans, but I had a very difficult time finding out the timing and the agenda, even after asking for help.  Rather than reading that as a Sign that it wasn’t my cup of Buffalo Water, it occurred to me that my current path may be leading me away from Reunification with Nature – especially around the Money issues we discussed a couple of posts ago in Forbidden Genius and Responsibility

It’s very easy to make a case that Money is an Artifact of the Industrial Revolution that is on its final Debriefing (till 2021).  Is relaxing about it a Sign that we’ve Transcended it, or a Sign that we’ve Surrendered to it?  Well, today I realized that of course it’s Both/And – how could it be otherwise! – just another Paradox!

Karma-Chariklo-Pluto IV

April 18, 2017

The Pluto Station Configuration is simpler yet, though simple doesn’t always mean easy.  This Configuration is a Tricolor – you can probably figure out why we call it that.  That last Square Fez was actually two interlocking Tricolors, and we hinted at the similarity in interpretation processes.  This Station is Exact at 6am PDT on 20 April in 20 Capricorn…

The Major Tricolor is a Square (red, meaning Mastery through Challenge), a Quincunx (green, Curiosity), and a Trine (blue, Big Grace).  We can also have a Minor Tricolor, where a Sextile (a shorter blue line, Little Grace) replaces the Trine.  The approach we use is that by moving our Attention from the Challenge in the Square to the Curiosity in the Quincunx, we Trigger the Grace in the Trine.

These are some pretty hefty players – Pluto (Transformation), asteroid Juno (Moving into Consciousness), Jupiter (Amplification), and dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential).  Together these represents a Big Leap in Consciousness.

Let’s start with the Challenge that we can Choose to “ignore” – that is, Allow it to happen without our contributing Frustration – by focusing on the Curiosity.  While we aren’t talking Resurrection or the Ships Landing, Juno is really a rip in the Veil.  Not the Big Veil that protects our narrow Cultural view of Reality by hiding the Other Side and the Faeries and the Visitors, but the Big-to-Us Veil that protects the Ego from invasion by Awareness that our Limiting Beliefs are, well, Limiting. 

I’m sure you’ve heard of Pluto as Lord of the Underworld, so in that sense we are talking about the Other Side, but Pluto the planet is more about Ego Death than Physical Death – that is, Ego Rebirth, which since the Ego is nothing if not Relentless, is preceded by an Ego Death of one sort or another.  It doesn’t have to be Traumatic, but it’s usually disruptive.  Welcome disruption at times,  if we’re ready for it. 

As you probably remember, we regard our Species to be driven 99% or so from the Unconscious, and 1% or so from the Ego, or Conscious Choice.  The Unconscious operates on us through a collection of Archetypes, which are a constellation of Beliefs, Behaviors, Emotions, Thoughts, and Forms.  Miracle Healings are possible because Archetypes can have Physical Form, so Letting Go of an Archetype can Transform our Physicality.

Operating under these Archetypes is, virtually, operating in Trance.  And Pluto is about Changing Trances.  If you have a Strong natal Pluto, you Change Trances as easily as changing your clothes, though less often.  Folks with a Strong natal Pluto Feel like they’re living many Lifetimes in one, as each chapter in their Life is distinctly different from the previous chapters, with sharp distinctions between them.

Transformation is the keyword that best fits Pluto, and we often play with the word as Trance(Re)Formation – Forming a New Trance.  When we have a sharp break in our Global or Cultural Timelines, like the start of a new World War or Civil War, or a disruptive “Black Swan” economic event like a Brexit, Pluto is usually involved.  We get a “New Normal” and meet it with a New Trance.

So just the fact that the Pluto Station Conjoins Juno is pretty profound, as a rip in our Personal Veil is likely to be joined by turnover in our Ego.  On the Global scale, it may be no accident that there’s a new Loose Cannon on deck.  And now our Challenge is that on both levels Jupiter isn’t likely to let it be a minor event soon forgotten.  This is the Challenge we’d just as soon Allow to happen on its own, without our messing it up any more than is necessary.

So we move to the Quincunx between Juno-Pluto and Chaos, which is – by definition rather than hyperbole – literally mind-blowing.  Chaos is out there where Sylvester lives, Granny isn’t home, Tweety’s cage just got blown apart, and Tweety ‘R’ Us.  So an excellent PIAVA to express our Curiosity might be “I Wonder how the devil we’re going to Survive this!”The yang form of Creativity is all about Mechanism – How to get it done.  The yin form is all about Result – What We Want.  In order to pull off a clean yin Manifestation job, we need to Avoid thinking about Mechanism, and let our Intuition guide us step by step.  That’s how we Create Miracles.  So we aren’t talking about the sort of Curiosity that Responds with “Well, maybe this will work…”  We’re talking head-scratching, slack-jawed Wonder, as in “Well, Glory Be!  Look at that will ya!”

The trick in “I Wonder how we’re going to Survive this” (the “How” is figurative, we aren’t addressing Mechanism, but Outcome) is that it gives a Suggestion to the Unconscious (which is very Suggestible) that we will, somewhow, Survive.  That’s very different from fretting about whether our radiation shield is working, or that our customers are now foreigners.

Since the Grace is available, why not Receive it!  Jupiter Trine Chaos is even Bigger than Jupiter Square Juno-Pluto.  Juno-Pluto implies that someone left the front door open.  Chaos implies that the roof just blew away.  So if there’s so much Change afoot, why not use it to our Advantage.  Let it Clear Away all the detritus that won’t serve is in our new Incarnation. 

How to do that?  Focus on the ultimate Outcome that we Want.  Afraid we’ll Lose something essential?  Paint it into the post-Apocalypse landscape.  Better yet, how does that essential something make you Feel?  Add that Feeling to your post-Apocalypse Emotionscape.  Your Life is really all your Creation, so Go For It, and take the Easy way.

Karma-Chariklo-Pluto II

April 16, 2017

It’s been a long time since we saw a relatively straightforward chart, because it’s been a long time since all of the action hasn’t been happening in the last third of the Signs.  This week asteroid Karma’s Stationary at 3 Degrees, Chariklo at 15 Degrees, and Pluto at 20 Degrees – Pluto turning back just as it’s about to enter the 21-26 Degree zone that’s been so busy!

Not that there isn’t still a whole lot of Action in the last third of the Signs, it just happens not to be what’s Lit Up most Strongly this week.  Let’s start with the Station of asteroid Karma in 3 Virgo…

Not even sure what silly name to give to this Configuration.  Maybe we could call it an “Anchored Truss Bridge” or the like, as it’s certainly a Truss Bridge (two Trine Bridges – the blue lines – on the same side of an Opposition) across the Nodal Axis, with Makemake at least sitting on the beach below if not Anchoring the whole Bridge.

A Trine Bridge of course is a Boon, offering as it does an Easy Path across the Opposition.  A Truss Bridge is even better, offering two Easy Paths!  And when the Opposition is the Nodal Axis it’s a Big Boon, as it suggests Easy Paths for our long-sought Psycho-Spiritual Progress.  And having asteroid Karma Stationary on the North Node should be much Easier than having it Stationary on the South Node.

This is especially true with 2007 OR10 (a dwarf planet that hasn’t been officially named yet, so still goes by it’s discovery code – we usually abbreviate it “OR10”) sitting on the South Node, as OR10 is about Irruptions from the Unconscious.  In this case we can expect Irruptions of Karmic Material, so having that occur in the context of a Big Boon with the promise of Easy Growth is Huge.

Remember too that our usual associations of Karma as negative is a misunderstanding.  As Alan Watts famously said, our Good Karma is harder to Let Go Of than our Bad Karma, as we’re accustomed to thinking of Good Karma as, well, Good.  Karma is Inertia, and we can just as easily get stuck on “Good” Habits as “Bad” ones.  The Bane lies in Reacting to everything one way – even if we’re actually Making Love with Stella – rather than having Free Choice about how to Respond.

Habits and Archetypes are incredibly handy – we couldn’t drive a car without them, for instance.  We don’t Judge Habits.  We just Prefer not to let them enslave us, because they keep us from achieving Presence.

Our two Easy Paths are through Atropos – Endings, and through Mercury – Communication, Thought, Analysis.  In this case Analyzing might be useful, though in general whenever we’re dealing with the Unconscious, PIAVA will usually work better.  If we’re Conscious that it is us that grasps Karma rather than the other way around, then Ending Patterns is indeed Easier.

The Finger of God (green arrowhead) pointing to Makemake suggests that we will be able to Manifest What We Want more Easily if we take advantage of the Sextile (short blue line) at its base – between OR10-South Node and Mercury.  That would involve Understanding what the Unconscious Irruptions are all about.  

I know, Understanding is usually inferior to Intuition, but of course it’s ultimately Both/And – and always Responding one way is counterproductive, even if it’s superior in most cases.  Sometimes we want to mix it u just for the sake of mixing it up.

Now, let’s see what happens if we loosen our usual 3-Degree Sensitivity a bit and add asteroid Nemesis to the chart; Nemesis is 3.06 Degrees of Sensitivity from the Degree of asteroid Karma, …

Nemesis symbolizes Ego Death, so we might say that the Finger of God pointing at it tells us that Ending (Atropos) an Archetype (Karma) is Easier if we Pay Attention to facing down (Lovingly of course) the Ego Death.  

It also introduces a Square (red line) to Mercury, suggesting that Analysis could slow us down after all, if it rationalizes our Olde Ego – which Analysis is always likely to do, because it’s logic based on often-unstated Assumptions, and the unstated Assumptions are very likely to be exactly the Limiting Beliefs we’re trying to Liberate ourselves from.

So, are we Contradicting ourself here?  Be mindful that Contradictions are Either/Ors, while Reality is a Both/And.  Contradictions exist only in the mind of the observer, never in observed Reality.  So sure, we can Contradict all day.  We aren’t building a legal argument, we’re charting a Path into the Unconscious, where Paradox abounds and where Dualities are Illusions.

By the way, this second chart is a Square Fez, embellished with the Nodal Opposition across the center of it.  A Fez is shaped like the hat, here on its side.  The Square Fez has Squares (red lines) for sides; we could also have a Trine Fez, with blue lines for sides.  The essence of a Fez is in the diagonal Quincunxes (green lines, or True Curiosity) – Atropos-Nemesis and Mercury-Makemake.

The Quincunx always Asks us to PIAVA

  • “I Wonder what it would be like to End (Atropos) an Archetype with an Effortless Ego Death (Nemesis).”
  • “I Wonder if I can Manifest (Makemake) just by Thinking (Mercury) about What I Want.”

And then Change the Subject.  That’s probably an Easier way to Allow this Great Leap Forward to occur. 

Venus Station

April 14, 2017

The Venus Station occurs at 3am PDT on 15 April, in 27 Pisces.  While the chart has several notable features, the two most prominent are both Diamond Stars…

A Diamond Star is a T-Square (red triangle), which symbolizes Mastery through Challenge, and a Finger of God (green arrow), signifying Pay Attention!, both pointing at the same planet.  The two of them are intertwined here, so are harder to pick out.  There’s a picture of an isolated Diamond Star at… 

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2013/03/24/portal-3-25/

along with a portrait of a gorgeous Manganophyllite.  In the chart above, the two Diamond Stars point down, and toward the upper left.  

The blue lines symbolize the Grace that a Diamond Star creates, making the Challenge of the T-Square much Easier to handle and Mastery Easier to achieve. In the Venus Station chart we also have a Grand Sextile, the six blue lines around the perimeter of the chart.  A Grand Sextile is one of the most Grace-full indications we can be Gifted with.

The Foci of the Diamond Stars in the Venus Station chart are standouts.  They are…

  • Sun-Uranus-Eris, symbolizing Being True to Our Soul Self
  • Saturn-Ixion, representing Recovery of Our Forbidden Genius

A Venus Station in general is about Reconsidering the Validity of Our Values Relative to Our True Self.

These Arcturian Channelings are always Expanding my Awareness and bringing me new Insights about how things fit together.  For instance, I’d never thought of it this way…

This is a time of increased awareness of yourselves and the others that you share your planet with.  This is a time of uncovering, discovering, and being transparent to one another.  It is one of the reasons why you have so much sharing of information happening through your technology, including the unwanted and invasive spying techniques that are employed at times by people in positions of power.

“This is not meant to elicit feelings of victimization.  This reality that you are creating for yourselves is meant to get you ready for a full telepathic society.  Those of you who are empathic are already reading the emotions of others and feeling them within yourselves.  Once you transition to being fully telepathic, there will be no secrets and there will be no hiding.  There will be no reason to try to deceive another or hide a thought or a feeling.

“And so you are readying yourselves for that eventuality.  This is a part of the evolution of your consciousness, because in order for you to be willing to share everything about yourselves, you must release your fears, your shame, and your judgment.  

When you accomplish this undertaking, which is well underway for all of you, you will not feel a need to hide anything from each other, and you will be willing to speak to one another about what you are feeling, what you are thinking, and what you desire.

“This openness is going to create a deepening of the connection that you all have with one another and a strengthening of the human collective, which will ultimately assist you in your ascension process.  

Now, in the meantime, what would be most beneficial to all of you would be to start by being honest with yourselves.  Start by acknowledging how you feel, acknowledging what you want to do and what you don’t want to do, and even stating out loud to yourself how you feel, what it is that you want, and what it is that you are wanting to release.”

So says Daniel Scranton, Channeling the Arcturian Council, at…

http://danielscranton.com/transparency-the-shift-∞the-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

There’s more to the Channeling, and it’s worthwhile.

You might notice that the base of the Saturn-Ixion Forbidden Genius T-Square is the Venus Station itself, Conjunct Chiron (Despair and Miracles), Opposing asteroid Hopi (Respect for All Things).  Your Natural Genius, your Programmed Values, your Despair, and your Gratitude/Respect are all Competing here for your Ego’s Loyalty.  The Venus-Chiron Conjunction Asks that you Find a Space of Win-Win between all of these contestants.

The base of the Sun-Uranus-Eris T-Square is the Opposition between asteroid Nemesis (Ego Death) and the Conjunction of Vesta (Limiting Beliefs) and Varuna (The Life Force) – In order to Let Go of Unconscious Beliefs that Limit our Life Force so we can Allow our Light to Shine Through, we need to be willing to face Ego Death.

We’ve drawn the Venus Station chart using fairly rigid three-Degree Sensitivity that’s appropriate for evaluating the Now.  If we stretvh that just a bit, which is completely appropriate for evaluating the likely Future course of the Projects we Begin here, we would include dwarf planet Haumea (Rebirth) Opposite Sun-Uranus-Eris, and asteroid Veritas (Truth) Opposite Saturn-Ixion, converting both T-Squares into Grand Crosses and Easing our Challenges further.

Including these also resets the Sappho-Sedna Yin Gate that we worked with earlier in the year.  As Daniel says, “in order to be willing to share everything about ourselves, we must release our fears, our shame, and our judgment.”  The message of this Yin Gate is that we must Embrace our Fear (Sedna) to Complete our Self-Love (Sappho).  The Sappho-Sedna Yin Gate re-forms next week through mid-May and again between late August and mid-September.

 

Full Moon – The Rest

April 12, 2017

We don’t want to give short shrift to the 15 April Venus Station (3am PDT at 27 Pisces), so let’s finish up the Full Moon expeditiously.  Let me know if any questions come up.  Two other charts are fundamental to grokking the Full Moon, the chart of the Mercury (9 April 4pm PDT, 5 Taurus) and Hylonome (10 April 6am PDT, 9 Capricorn) Stations, and the chart of the Varuna Station (10 April 3pm PDT, 29 Cancer).

Here’s the chart of the Mercury and Hylonome Stations…

The big Grand Cross (red Square and Xes) and the two Grand Trines (equal-sided blue Triangles, which are actually Kites when we add the little triangles on one side of each of them) are the standout features.  I don’t think we introduced the Grand Trine earlier.

A “Trine” is the Angle between two planets that are one third of the way round the Zodiac, and the “Grand Trine”  is made up of three planets equally spaced around the Loop.  Put a fourth planet halfway between two of those, and you have a “Kite,” so named because that’s what it looks like.  A Grand Trine makes things so Easy that we refer to it as “Dumb-Luck Grace.”

The “best” charts are charts like this one, that contain major Motivation Configurations (Grand Cross) and major Grace Configurations (Grand Trines), because they Balance Work and Ease, so we neither exhaust ourself nor get lazy.

This is the chart of a highly Motivated Multi-Tasker who can learn how to Channel tons of Grace.  Grace is its own Master; until we Learn that others have their own Unique Skills, a Grand Cross often signifies Arrogance, as folks seem incompetent to us when they can’t do what’s Effortless for us.  The two Stations are both part of the Grace, not part of the Motivation, and the Complement one another very very well, being both in Earth Signs.

So we should be able to identify the Archeypes that we need to Let Go of relatively easily – don’t try to get hyper-analytical about it, just Ask your Belly what makes it Tense Up.

There are two Fingers of God, one pointing at Hylonome (Letting Go of Archetypes) and the other at Eurydike (Trust).  These are the two Energies that the Universe is Asking us to Pay Special Attention to.

The Varuna-Station chart is more assymetrical…

We can see the Grand Trine (big blue triangle) and two “T-Squares” (big red triangles pointing to the left and lower left).  A T-Square is half of a Grand Cross, and represents Mastery through Challenge.  We usually don’t appreciate the Mastery because we usually get stuck on the Frustration of the ongoing Challenge; we eliminate the Frustration by Paying Attention to how much Mastery we’ve gained.

All that Pressure (where the red and blue triangles converge, at the focus of the T-Square and a corner of the Grand Trine) focuses on asteroid Sappho, which symbolizes Self-Love.  We’ll be making our course Easier by exercising what Self-Love we’ve already Mastered, while we’re Learning more of it.

The other T-Square points toward a Stellium made up of Ixion (Our Forbidden Genius), Saturn (The Most Important Thing), Pholus (Taking Full Responsibility), Quaoar (Survival Instincts), and the Galactic Center (Instructions from Headquarters).  This is pretty serious; basically the Universe is telling us that we all need to get busy Taking Full Responsibility for Recovering our Unique Genius, or our Survival will be in Question.

But neither of these, Big as they are, is the dominant Configuration – that’s the Yin Gate, the two green Xs in the middle of the chart, enclosed in the blue rectangle, and intertwined with the red Ж (Cyrillic letter Zhe) in the center.  The bottom line of a Yin Gate is to Learn the Paradox represented by the central long red line.

Here that’s the Nodal Axis – the path of our Spiritual Progress during the Lifetime.  The Paradox involved here is that We Need the Skills Hidden beneath our Held (maximally resisted) Emotions (the South Node or earbuds at the bottom) in order to accomplish our Lifetime Mission (the North Node or stethoscope at the top).  That which we hate is our most Powerful tool, once we Learn to Embrace it.

 

Full Moon Configuration IVb

April 11, 2017

Here’s a good Crystal Cluster to facilitate Openness to Learning and Curiosity… 

The pink Crystals are called Inesite, a Calcium Manganese Inosilicate.  Silicates can be structured in a number of ways; in an inosilicate the Silicate groups are arranged in chains, in Inesite double chains, like a necklace.  Enlarge the photo to full screen to appreciate how the individual Crystals relate to one another.  

Full Moon Configuration IV

April 11, 2017

Lets look at another Big Configuration that uses the Sedna-Mars-Ceres-Mnemosyne Stellium from the Full Moon segment of the Full Moon chart that we’ve just discussed, and the Eurydike asteroid from the Hylonome Station segment which we’ll map out soon,  This is a Grand Quintile

The Quintile or Fifth Harmonic is about Learning.  A Grand Quintile tells us that the Learning Lamp is Lit and burning brightly.  We put Grand in front of a Configuration when it fills up the Zodiac.

Unlike the “major” Angles, the endpoints of Quintiles don’t fall in the same Degrees.  360 divided by 5 is 72, or 2.4 Signs.  They’re often ignored because they aren’t as easy to spot as the multiples-of-30-Degrees Angles.

At a glance we can see that the weightiest corner of this Grand Quintile stands out like the proverbial sore thumb – the Sedna-Mars-Ceres-Mnemosyne Stellium.  (A Stellium is a group of three or more planets.)  So let’s start there.

With thanks to a reader for the Inspiration, we’ve decided that Our Response to Fear is a much better interpretation of Sedna than just Fear.  We could put any Fear-and-Anger-related interpretation we wanted on it, but the only valid reasons I can think of for interpreting it as Fear itself are naivete and Power-Over.  If I said we need to be Scared Shitless (Sedna) about Anger (Mars), would that serve us?

Now if someone is in serious Denial about their Anger issues, it’s possible that they could use this Stellium to Manifest that.  But who among us is there?  And would it actually be useful to suggest that?  No, it would be much more useful to say that we want to Be Mindful about How We Respond to Fear and Anger, and in particular Consider the Sustainability of our Actions (Mars-Ceres) in this context, and Look to See If Current Situations Remind us of Anything (Mnemosyne).

As Michael Roads suggests, if someone runs into the back of your car while texting, you should treat them to lunch.  His reasoning is that since there are no accidents, this must be one in a long Chain of Karmic Reactions, and by substituting a “random” act of kindness we Revert the ancient Spell.  So it behooves us to review every less-than-perfect event to see what the Chain might be, so we can Revert.

This is a Grand Quintile, so we can say that the Stellium is Collaborating with the other four elements to Teach Us to Be Mindful about How We Respond to Fear and Anger, Consider the Sustainability of our Actions, and Look to See If Current Situations Remind us of Anything, then Review the Circumstances of our Memories for Opportunities to Let Go of Repeating Patterns We No Longer Need.

And what of the other four elements?  It’s a Powerful collection – asteroid Eurydike (Trust), Jupiter (Expansion), Saturn (Attention), and Neptune (Material Confusion but Spiritual Clarity).  

  • Let’s start with the last, Neptune.  We’ve all been Learning and Practicing to Recognize Confusion and Reframe it as the Beginnings of Growth in Consciousness, right?.  We’ve been talking about that for years.
  • The paired “twins” Jupiter (Extroversion, Expansion) and Saturn (Introversion, Contraction) suggest that We’ll Be Learning to Make Our Boundaries Looser or Tighter on the Fly as We Learn to Become More Sensitive to Confusion, Fear, and Anger.  
  • And Eurydike implies that We’ll Be Learning to Trust our Instincts rather than our Opinions about What’s Going On Moment to Moment in our Lives.

All of which sounds like a fabulous Gift, as long as we’re Alert for situations that appear to be the Opposite of what we’ve suggested, as those will be the “Paper Tigers” that we can Choose not to React to.  

Karma is dead; all we need to do to Confront our Obsolete Patterns – which include any and all Patterns that don’t reinforce our Self-Love and improve our Quality of Life – is to Recognize them and Respond Differently then we’ve been Reacting since Forever.  Then, the next step is to build in Repetitions of exactly this, so our old Habits are completely Replaced.  If you’re Alert, it’s actually easier done than said.

Michael Roads (“365 Steps” email; see http://int.michaelroads.org/) gives us some Perspective…

“Freedom is not where you are, or even what you are doing; it is all based in your relationship with yourself.

“You could be on an island paradise, with every luxury at your fingertips, every wish fulfilled, but even all this luxury has nothing to do with freedom.  Most likely you would simply want more!  Freedom is truly based in your relationship with yourself.  

“If you Love yourself, you could experience freedom in a prison cell.  Your body can be confined, but not your spirit-Self; and freedom truly is a spiritual experience.  You can be free within duty to others, within a regular routine, within business, because true freedom is a within-self experience.  I also need to state that endless ‘wants’ curtail and limit any relationship with freedom.”

Full Moon Configuration III

April 11, 2017

Here’s the picture when we equally weight the Grand Cross and the Golden Rectangle…

It looks a lot more confusing before we tease out the individual Configurations.  Putting all the pieces together and eliminating the subtle details, we have Building a new Timeline based on Owning our True Self by Recognizing and Letting Go of our Limitations.

There’s one more way to redraw this segment of the Full Moon chart, emphasizing what we call the “Tricolors.”  Tricolors can help us find methods of, for instance, Recognizing and Letting Go of our Limitations, methods which might not otherwise be obvious.  

A Tricolor is so named because it spans the Zodiac using all three colors – red for Energy, green for Curiosity, blue for Grace.  A Square (red line) is not a Problem seeking a Solution.  It’s a Challenge to Mastery.  We can unlock the Grace in the blue line and apply it to the Challenge, by turning to our True Curiosity.  That’s not Curiosity seeking an Answer, it’s an Open Wonder that invites Intuition.

Same picture, different lines emphasized…

Lets start with the Challenge (red line) between Expressing our True Self (Sun-Uranus-Eris) and our Limiting Beliefs (Vesta).  As we’ve said, Letting Go of our Archetypes (or even Identifying them) is seldom easy.  How can the Tricolor help?  The third party here is Weaving the Foundation for our New Timeline (Klotho).  So we PIAVA our True Curiosity (green line) about how Expressing our True Self relates to Weaving our New Foundation.

By doing that we enlist the Unconscious to “be on our side” around the thorny issue of our Limiting Beliefs.  I usually use the “Wonder” side of PIAVA (or maybe VIPAWA in this case), such as “I Wonder how Expressing my True Self will be Woven into the Foundation of my New Identity.”  Notice it’s not a Question, it’s a Statement.  You don’t want “I Wonder how I can…” because its not “you” (your Olde or current Identity) that will be Weaving the Tapestry.

This Tricolor is Vesta Square Sun-Uranus-Eris Quincunx Klotho Trine Vesta.

Your Olde Identity is Wondering how your New Identity will be Built, and without trying to interfere (you’re just Curious), you – your Olde Identity – is making a strong suggestion about what a good result might look like, and your suggestion aligns with the “Stars,” so you’re Flowing with Nature, not against Her.  That Flowing with Nature is an important part of the “5D” World of Collaborative Magic that We Want to Manifest.

You could also be more Prescriptive, as in “Great Spirit, please Lovingly and Gently and Rapidly and Completely Weave Expression of my True Self prominently into my Rebirth” or the like.  But where’s the Curiosity in that?  It sounds more like your Olde Ego trying to Take Control.  I like Wonder much better in Tricolors.

The other two Tricolors both apply to the Square (red line or Challenge) between Pluto and Moon-Haumea.  Pluto-Moon Angles can be nasty, and in this case, where we’re Being Reborn by Letting Go of our Limitations, we’re very likely to come up against our Held Emotions – those are the one’s where “We’d rather Die than go through that again.”  

Well, yes, that’s exactly what Birthing a New Timeline is about, Ego Death.  Not “I’d rather Die” but “I (my Olde Identity) am Dying so I can be Reborn.”  Curious time of year for this to arise, isn’t it.  So it would probably be a good idea to try to work some “Lovinglys and Gentlys” into our PIAVAs.

The third parties in these two Tricolors are Veritas-Chaos and Sedna-Mars-Ceres-Mnemosyne.  So we might use PIAVAs on the order of “I Wonder if Focusing on Limitlessness will facilitate the Rebirith of my Identity and make the Transformation more Loving and Gentle” and “I Wonder if Remembering ancient Mantras that direct my Actions toward Sustainable Survival will Ease my Path as I slip into this Void between Identities.” 

These are…

  • Moon-Haumea Square Pluto Quincunx Veritas-Chaos Trine Moon-Haumea
  • Pluto Square Moon-Haumea Quincunx Sedna-Mars-Ceres-Mnemosyne Trine Pluto

These are Major Tricolors (Square-Quincunx-Trine).  There are also Minor Tricolors (Square-Quincunx-Sextile) here, such as…

  • Sun-Uranus-Eris Square Pluto Quincunx Veritas-Chaos Sextile Sun-Uranus-Eris
  • Vesta Square Moon-Haumea Quincunx Sedna-Mars-Ceres-Mnemosyne Sextile Vesta

What would you Wonder about these?
