Full Moon Scramble IV

December 5, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The other seven Mjölnirs or potential Epiphanies…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Get the idea?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Now the Biggie…

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

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

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

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

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

Let’s disassemble that Square…

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

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

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

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

Full Moon Scramble III

December 3, 2017

Let’s talk about the “Fingers of God” in the Full-Moon chart next.  There are four of them.  In general, Fingers of God are admonitions to “Pay Attention to These!” namely, the planets at the apices (or apexes) of the green wedges in the chart.  You know that we make a Big Deal about Wonder – Curiosity without a Compulsion to view it as a puzzle needing a solution.  The green lines in our charts symbolize Wonder and Curiosity. 

When two of these green lines converge into a wedge, that makes a Finger of God.  Each green line connects planets that are five twelfths of the way ’round the Zodiac from one another.   The Twelfth Harmonic is about Pattern-Breaking, and the Fifth Harmonic is about Learning.  So Five Twelfths is about Learning to Break Patterns – Learning to Liberate ourself from Limitations, Archetypes, Karma, Blockages, Resistance to Held Emotions and Forbidden Genii, and all manner of Self-Sabotage. 

If we approach Learning with the “Left Brain” using our Dynamic or Masculine Creativity, we usually seek an Answer to our (intellectual) Curiosity.  While this can break us out of places where we’re Stuck, it doesn’t often Transport us to entirely new ways of seeing the World.  It’s great for Incremental Progress, not as Powerful for Startling Innovations.  If on the other hand we use our Magnetic or Feminine Creativity, we seek Wonder.  If we then succeed in Changing the Subject, we may well be subsequently Graced with Intuitions and Insights that Expand our Consciousness.

We’ve already talked about the foci of three of the Fingers of God…

  • The Moon, which is not only a Supermoon Full Moon, but Authentic Change is emphasized in many different ways in this chart.
  • Aletheia-Mnemosyne, facing the Truth of the Memories that arise in the context of the Ego Deaths (Nemesis) we’re likely to encounter as we break through the blizzard of deep Limitations which are likely to move more Clearly into our Consciousness (the Jupiter-Vesta-Hopi-Karma Stellium in Scorpio).
  • Neptune-Lachesis (Realizing that We Have the Power to Transform our “Fate”), which,  Opposing Orcus (Pattern-Breaking), forms the perpendicular in the Grand Cross (Big Motivation) with the Full Moon itself.

Which leaves the fourth Finger of God, which points at the only corner of the Full-Moon chart that we haven’t mentioned at all so far.  This is the approaching Initiation of Sappho (Self-Love) by Chariklo (Self-Confidence).  We mentioned earlier (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/11/16/nightmares-of-abuse-et-al/) the Gauntlet of Initiations that Sappho has been undergoing.  The Sappho-Chariklo Initiation will be Complete 10 December (12am PST) in 13 Capricorn, “A fire worshiper meditates on the ultimate reality of existence.

That’s pretty intense.  Do we Love ourself enough to be Unconditional about our Self-Confidence?  Are we Confident enough in our Self-Love that we can make it Unconditional?  That’s what the 3½-year Sappho-Chariklo Cycle is about.  We’re certainly all Fire (Spirit) Worshipers, right?  So we will definitely enjoy Meditating on the Ultimate Reality of Existence for the next 3½ years, won’t we.  And we know that the Ultimate Reality of Existence is Unconditional Self-Love, don’t we.

 

Surrendering to the Unknown IV – Equinox

September 21, 2017

Being relatively close in both Time and Degree, the September Equinox chart echos the Hylonome-Juno Initiation chart (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/09/21/surrendering-to-the-unknown-ii/).  The Main Effect is again the Self-Love Challenge (Sappho T-Square), but this time Endings (Atropos) and Abuse (Nessus) have fallen out of the equation, leaving just Values (Venus) and Intrusive Memories (OR10) in the base of the T-Square. 

Our Values can be very strong, but they can be determined by our Programming more than our Heart.  The Question here is, do our Values stand up to the Test of Self-Love when they’re assaulted by Mindstuff full of Big Bummers?  Even PTSD-quality Bummers?  Are we, as Dan’s Arcturian friends in the previous installment suggested we might be, still running Evasion Tactics to hold our Bummers at arm’s length?  What exactly Triggered your Lust for that last piece of Chocolate?  When our Archetypes are embedded in Habits so deep that they rival Breathing, just locating them is tough, let along Letting these old friends Go.  They once saved our ass; don’t we still owe them tribute?

The Equinox itself Conjoins another upcoming Test, a Test of the Clarity of our Perception (the Makemake-Vesta Initiation, Squaring the Equinox).  There are Secret 5D Levers embedded all over 3D “Reality.”  If we can see them, Manifesting What We Want is Effortless.  If we can’t see them, it may be Impossible instead.  The Secret Levers lie behind the Blind Spots in our Consciousness.  Whatever is Hardest for you to Create, is Easy for someone else.  You probably Envy them.  But they may have great Difficulty Creating what you can Conjure in your sleep. 

It may take three or four or more of you to complete your Envy circle.  Joe may be Abundant in Money but Scarce in Love.  Abigail might be Secure about Food but Suffer from perennial Pennilessness.  Louise might be Anxious about her Health but never Lacking for Love.  Carlos might Worry about Food but Enjoy Good Health.  The four of you, if you could get past Envy and Greed, would make a very Strong Community.   You’d make an even better Team of Archetype-Busters.  If Abigail and Joe put their heads and Hearts together, they might be able to Identify Abigail’s Money-Scarcity Archetype. 

That would take a lot of Neutrality, but it would produce Results at least part of the time.  Of course, there may be no relationship between the Archetypes behind Joe’s good Money Karma and Abby’s desperate Need, but they still may have much to teach one another.  Good Karma is an Archetype too.  It’s a lot more fun than the alternative, but positive Archetypes cloud our Vision too.  If you take your good Karma for granted, or Fear for its Loss, in the final analysis it may not really be so good.

The worst kind of Despair is Unconscious Despair – when we no longer even Dream about What We Want because we really no longer Believe that it’s Possible.  We get to this place when we lose all contact with our Forbidden Genius, who may have been exiled for Lifetimes.  There is always a trace somewhere.  When you’re drowsy, what Daydreams slip in unbidden?  You may already have Dismissed them by the time you would Notice them.  PIAVA that you can see them again, Lovingly and Gently.

The Life Force (Varuna) Finger of God has now attracted a crowd – Sustainability, Truth, and more Memories (Ceres-Aletheia-Mnemosyne).  Now we are invited to follow not just Enlivening Energy, but the sort of Truly Sustainable Enlivenment that we can actually Remember.  Maybe a moment, soon lost, in your current Lifetime, that rang a bell?  Maybe a vague recurring Dream of Lemuria?

We haven’t talked about the Unxes – “Unx” means one twelfth, the Twelfth Harmonic, which is about Pattern-Breaking.  We draw them as short green lines, and in the Equinox chart we get five of them.  Since Stepping Free of our Archetypes is definitely Pattern-Breaking, the Unxes are like our infantry.  These are…

  • Self-Love and Survival Instinct from Deep Within (Sappho Unx Quaoar-Galactic Center) – We need to remember maxims like “Selfish is Self-Loving” and “Abundance is Having Enough to Share” and “Don’t Betray your Gut to Please someone else.”
  • Self-Love and our Creative Instinct (Sappho and the Moon) – You’re on a Mission here (Moon in Scorpio); don’t fall for Distractions.
  • Creative Instinct and Breaking Through our Limiting Beliefs about What We Can Create  (Moon and Sun-Vesta-Makemake) – Once you Identify and Notice a Limiting Belief, Trust that you already do know exactly how to Liberate yourself.  No Planning, Trust that when the Time is right, you’ll strike like Lightning.
  • Limiting Beliefs and our Values (Sun-Vesta-Makemake and Venus) – Your Values, normally Reliable Guides for you, are under drastic Revision.  Look especially for Values that Define Who You Are; those are the most important Values to unlock, because they will be closely linked to your Archetypal Limitations.
  • Values to the Sustainable Life Force (Venus and Varuna-Ceres-Aletheia-Mnemosyne) – Catalog your Values.  Is the list Complete?  Imagine some Challenging scenarios; how would you Respond?  Are the corresponding Values in your list?  Take your Values in turn; does this Value Energize you?  Does it Motivate you to Action? 

Do you actually Act then, or just Imagine Acting?  If you don’t Act, why not?  Is it Fear or Shame?  Competing Values?  Is the Value really from your Heart, or from your Programming?  One reason you may not Actively Support your Values is that they aren’t True Values. 

When you find Competing Values, have them talk to one another.  Ask each one for their Positive Function.  You want to throw Caution to the Winds and Indulge your Deepest Fantasies, but you can’t.  Maybe the Competing Value isn’t really to keep you from having too much fun, but to keep you Safe.  So you need to facilitate a Negotiation between these two Values, till they figure out how to Indulge your Deepest Fantasies Safely

There’s an intriguing Configuration in the Equinox chart that I’ve never seen before, probably because I’ve never looked for it.  If you take a Trioctile (135 Degrees) and a Biquintile (144 Degrees) and a Binovile (80 Degrees) and add them together, the total is 359 Degrees.  That’s not 360, but all it would take to get to 360 would be for the Biquintile to be 145 Degrees, still well within Sensitivity on any scale.

We’ve drawn the Binovile (Meditation on Duality) in purple, the Biquintile (Learning to Accept Paradox) as a thin orange line, and the Trioctile (Balance that is both Loving and Wise) in a thick orange line. The sum of the Angles, including Sensitivity, is 142:12 +136:36 + 81:36 = 360:00, with Sensitivity of 1:36 all around.

Regarding the Trioctile as a Gift and the other Angles as, relatively, “Work,” we’d read the Binovile first, then the Biquintile, assuming that following this progression would make the Trioctile Gift available to us.  That parallels the way we read Tricolor Configurations – the Challenge (Square), when addressed with Curiosity (Quincunx), Opens to the Grace (Trine).

The Configuration is Pallas-Binovile-South Node-Biquintile-Equinox Sun-Trioctile-Pallas, and our interpretation might be Meditation on Loosening the Boundaries between our Ego and our Held (Forbidden) Emotions could Teach us about our Central Core – those Heart Vibrations that the Arcturians spoke of – and Allow us to Redraw our Boundaries so that we Defend our Heart more and our Ego less.

So, we need a name for this new Configuration. I’m being told that it’s a Key Configuration – the Key to finding a Loving and Wise Balance.  So be it.

The influence of the Equinox chart should hold pretty Strongly for the next three months, and less Strongly for the three months after that.

Intuitive Confidence V – Lesson Plan

September 18, 2017

The Asbolus Station chart, and the New Moon after it, features no less than three Quintile Yods.  A Yod is a wedge-shaped triangle.  A Quintile is two planets one fifth of the way ’round the Zodiac from one another.  It means Learning and Teaching, the Fifth Harmonic.  We usually draw them in orange (though they look more red here).  A Quintile Yod is made up of two Biquintiles (two fifths of the way ’round) and one Quintile, making a narrow triangle, like these…

The three Quintile Yods include…

  • A Nemesis QYod on a base of Stationary Asbolus and Venus – we will be Learning about Ego Death with our Intuition and our Values as our Teachers
  • An Ixion-Saturn-Lilith QYod on a base of Pallas and Ceres-Aletheia-Mnemosyne – We’re finally Learning that it’s Most Important to Support the Sovereignty of our Hidden Genius, as we Remember the Truth of the Abuse that forced Her underground, and Learn to draw Boundaries to Protect Her
  • A North Node QYod on a base of Chiron and Pluto – This one is Big too; we’re Learning to Support our Lifetime Mission (whether we recognize it Consciously or not), by Accepting the necessary Self-Transformations and Empathizing with the Pain of the resulting Ego Deaths

One Quintile Yod is fairly unusual; three of them at once is a Graduate School.

In the previous post, https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/09/18/intuitive-confidence-iv-asbolus/, we drew in, in light lines, the ongoing Earth Grand Trine that includes the 17 September Chariklo Station, partly to remind us that it’s still about, and partly to point out that… 

  • Orcus Initiated Mercury in 10 Virgo on 17 September (6pm PDT).
  • Orcus Initiated Moon in 10 Virgo on 18 September (noon PDT).
  • Orcus Initiates Mars in 10 Virgo on 19 September (10:30 am PDT).

10 Virgo is “Two heads looking out and beyond the shadows,” which Rudhyar interprets as Transcending Duality.  Wouldn’t that be nice.  Orcus is about Oath-Making and Oath-Breaking.  The Etruscan God Orcus was in charge of Punishing Oath-Breakers.  Oaths serve only to enforce Slavery, whether to outside Authority or to our own mind.  A distant Ancestor once took an Oath to Breathe Oxygen, so we can’t dismiss Oaths completely – we’re Creatures of Habit, and we’d all be stumbling around like one-year-olds if we weren’t, if we made it to year one. 

However, there’s a one-to-one relationship between Oaths we’ve made and Archetypes that Enslave us.  We live 99% from the Unconscious, and many of the Archetypal Programs running in the Unconscious are Limiting Beliefs.  Since those Limiting Beliefs travel with us from Lifetime to Lifetime, we’ve Vowed to Escape from some of them during the current Lifetime.  The Etruscans were right – Breaking an Oath requires Punishment, and we feel it as Guilt. 

Yes, we Disappoint and Abandon many people, in this Lifetime and others, when we disavow an Oath, and that doesn’t feel good.  This Discomfort is part of our Ego Death.  We use the Ego to Merge with an Oath to create a Limiting Belief – it Defines us – otherwise we wouldn’t reliably Obey it.  So Transcending it requires an Ego Death.  

Cause an Defect Full Moon IV

August 9, 2017

Okay, more about the Full Moon chart and the Partial Eclipse that’s a Gateway to the impending Big Total Solar Eclipse that shines a spotlight on the USofA…

As with all Signs, we can run them Positively or we can run them Negatively.  Remember though that the World (and hopefully your segment of it) needs ultimately to be in Balance, and is Multidimensional as well, so don’t get stuck in Archetypes that worship either side of that Duality. 

(Actually, the World and yourself are always in Balance, it’s just that whatever is needed to Balance your Conscious side resides in the Unconscious.  Since the Unconscious actually rules us, then from this Perspective, the nicer you are, the meaner you really are – and vice versa.)

You’ve been to performances where you’ve been Exhausted afterward, and other performances where you’ve felt Energized after.  That’s the difference between someone who builds their own Confidence by sucking other people’s Energy (we can think of a prominent example who lives in a house that’s being remodeled at the moment), and someone who Shares their Abundant Leonine Self-Love broadly.  Abundance is having enough to Share, After all. 

This is the Duality often represented by Leo, where Sun and Mars and Atropos (Endings) are all parked at this Full Moon, along with the North Node (Lifetime Mission), Veritas (Truth), and Varuna (Life Force)Varuna will be in Leo for the next quarter-century, which should put a very Auspicious carpet under this Planet for a long while.  As for Mars in Leo, if we wrote a song about our Anger, would it draw a cheering crowd?  And when we mingle with the crowd afterward, are they the kind of people we’d Feel at Home with?

Expressing our Anger (Mars) can Create Community, and it can drive folks away.  While Communing with Everyone is a fabulous Aquarian goal (http://danielscranton.com/your-universal-family-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/), we may not actually be ready for such Sympathy and Understanding, Harmony and Trust Abounding.  And that’s all right.  We Are Who We Are, moment to moment (http://danielscranton.com/creating-experiences-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/).

We all need a place to return to where we are Understood and Respected and Loved for exactly Who We Really Are, so for all but the most Saintly among us, that first sort of Community is what we need to Create, to make a Safe Space for us while we put the finishing touches on our Saintliness.  While Anger tends to Divide, the presence of Atropos suggests that Expressing our Anger may help to Let It Go.

This is what the Leo-Aquarius Axis, which this Full Moon Illuminates, is all about, the Coin that unites the Duality.  Leo is the epitome of the Individual Self, Aquarius the epitome of Community.  Leo represents Fixed Fire, Stabilized Energy, or Spirit Manifested into Form.  Aquarius represents Fixed Air, Ideology, or Intellect Manifested into Form.  Michael Roads goes to great lengths to differentiate Intellect from Intelligence.  To him Intelligence derives from the Heart and Gut, while Intellect derives from the Left Brain. 

The Intellect is more than capable of supporting Intelligence, though in the Patriarchy, it’s more likely to support Morality, Politics, and the Preservation of Privilege.  Intellect is finely tuned for Logical Analysis, but Logic is a house of cards built upon Assumptions.  Propaganda manipulates your Logic without being Clear that its Assumptions may not be Universal.  To Transform Aquarius into Intelligence Manifested into Form, we need to Let Go of our Karmic Archetypes.  Our Archetypes and Limiting Beliefs are no more and no less than Unconscious Assumptions.  As long as they’re Unconscious, we can only see half of the Universe.

While Astrology deals with Dualities, it also deals with the Multidimensional.  Leo and Aquarius are not Complete without the other two Fixed Signs, Scorpio and Taurus (and of course the Fixed Signs are not Complete without the Creative and Mutational Signs).  Scorpio as Fixed Water or Emotion, and Taurus as Fixed Earth or Matter, represent the Stabilized Emotional and Material aspects of Reality.  Of course, depending on your Archetypes, Emotion and Matter can be Stabilized into either Constructive or Deconstructive Directions.

The Klotho-Sappho Conjunction (Creating a New Timeline Based on Self-Love), which is the Focus of the Full Moon T-Square, is in Scorpio, so we’re dealing with an Emotional version of Self-Love.  That means the tears that come naturally to your eyes when someone validates the parts of you that are Unseen – your Genius Project, for instance – and when someone perpetrates an Act of Kindness that your own Personal Values wish everyone would do All the Time.  And the Grace you Feel when someone Validates your Anger.  The Leo-Aquarius Full Moon is about the Dynamic between the Individual and the Collective – between You and Other.

Which means that the Taurus or Matter side of the Four-Dimensional Balance is Vacant – we need to Consciously Ground the Energy.  Dan and the Arcfolk concur – http://danielscranton.com/a-process-for-connecting-with-5d-energies-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/ .  The Vacancy is at 16 Taurus, “The inadequacy of past knowledge in times of crisis.”  Hmmm.  I’d rephrase that as “…in times of rapid Change” – in a Stable environment, traditional knowledge is actually very Powerful in a crisis.  But the point is that we need to PIAVA how to Ground ourself and our Milieu.  

There is, however, a Fixed Star in that location, Almach, which is the left foot of the Sacrificial Goddess Andromeda.  Foot as in Power, left as in Feminine Power.  Andromeda is a symbol of an Out-of-Power Tradition victimized by the Dominant Paradigm.  In other words it’s important to bring Self-Trust into Expression of our Anger, and to remember that our Intention is Self-Expression, not to be Understood.  If the Perpetrators Understand our Anger at their Oppression, their Dominance will be threatened, and they will be highly Motivated to torment us further.

Our Objective in Expressing our Anger is not Revenge or Restitution, but to Let Go of its Karmic Grasp of us.  Actually, our Karma does not Grasp us, our Ego Grasps it.  It’s a foundation for our Ego.  So to the Ego, it Feels as if it’s the Karma doing the Grasping.  We cannot Raise our Vibration until we Let Go of our Archetypes, including our Anger.  While it feels like we’re Angry at the Perps in our Present Life, it has Karmic Roots that will not be pulled out by striking out in the Present Life.

To Let Go of Anger or any strong Emotion, we need to start by Poor-Sweethearting it.  Strong Emotions are not Comfortable, and we need to Empathize with our own Discomfort.  “You poor Sweetheart, you Feel Angry, don’t you.”  It’s meant as a declaration of Self-Compassion, not an Accusation.  If being Angry makes you a bad person, find a substitute that isn’t.  “Your poor Sweetheart, you really Feel Irritated, don’t you.”  Or “Agitated,” or “Worked Up.”  Then Change the Subject, and see how long it takes for your Anger to return as a thought-stream.

The next time it arises, Tap it Out (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4).  If it’s at all serious, it will take several Iterations.  Measure the Intensity of your Anger on a scale of 1 to 10 before and after each Iteration, so you can Witness your Progress.  Alternate Poor-Sweethearting, Tapping, and any other PIAVA you can Create, making sure to Change the Subject after each process.

We should note that the Full Moon and the T-Square occur on the Midpoints of the Fixed Signs, which are the Power Points of the Zodiac, symbolizing the Four Horsepersons of the Apocalypse – Apocalypse to the Ego, Liberation of the Soul. 

We mentioned Obsession recently in this context, as Obsession can make it particularly difficult to Change the Subject, and a reader wrote to ask us how one might address Obsession.  Well, the first question I’d ask, is how might Obsession be indicated in their chart?

If it’s really an Appropriate Expression of their natality, then they may only need to Learn to Love it to Death.  That may not stop the Obsession, but it would make it more Pleasant, as once they Learned that, Obsession would trigger Love and Pleasure for them instead of Discomfort.  Of course, Learning to Love Obsession will likely involve a good deal of Ego Death, as at least some part of them wants it to go away, and they probably have a big backlog of Other People telling them it’s wrong.  But that’s all just a map of where they need to go to Learn to be Loving with it.

So, is Obsession an Appropriate Expression of their natal chart?  What would we look for?

Well, the most obvious place to start looking is Scorpio, and to a lesser extent Taurus.  These signs, especially Scorpio, don’t Let Go when they get hold of something they don’t fully grok yet, especially something Emotional, and especially something that seems Unfair.  Does our friend have planets in Scorpio?

Well, yes. seven of them.  We work with 45 planets and other points, so the average Sign should contain less than four planets.  So seven is a whole bunch.

We can start by what we would tell any Scorpio that might help them Love themselves…

Scorpio is Compelled to Get to the Bottom of Things.  We first Meet Other in Libra, and it raises all kinds of Questions for us, about whether We’re Okay and They Aren’t or They’re Okay and We Aren’t, whenever there seems to be a Conflict or even Contrast between us.  This is how we first Discover that our own Childhood may not have been as Loving as it could have been, so it’s not at all trivial.

It’s not easy for Anyone to get to You’re Okay and I’m Okay, and for Scorpio it becomes a Compulsion.  It takes a great deal of Maturity to understand that the end point is You’re Okay and I’m Okay rather than You’re Okay or I’m Okay, which complicates the whole process until we Realize that.  We also have to Realize that just because You’re Okay and I’m Okay, that doesn’t mean I have to Tolerate you if you aren’t my cup of tea.

Also, Scorpio is Fearless in their Pursuit of Truth.  Fearlessness is the most prominent element of Scorpio.  Other people do not Trust Scorpio, partly because Scorpio asks penetrating questions that require them to examine themselves more deeply than they usually like to, partly because Scorpio has a tendency to make and hold eye contact longer than most people are comfortable with.  Other people often feel like Scorpio is Looking into the Soul (which it is), and if they aren’t fully in Self-Love, it makes them want to run away.

Because of these kinds of Reactions from Other, Scorpio is one of the most difficult Signs to Embody in Left-Brain-worshiping Western Cultures.  Remember we aren’t talking about folks with Sun in Scorpio, we’re talking about anyone with a strong emphasis in Scorpio – or Pluto, Scorpio’s “Ruler” – in their natal chart or even in their Transits and Progressions.

These kinds of influences often draw Scorpio toward Addiction, and Teaching them to Love Themselves Exactly As They Are is the first step to helping them get out of Addiction, as the most prominent trigger for their Desire to Medicate is the Anxiety produced by their Need to Get to the Bottom of Things that are Forbidden to them.  Strong Scorpio is a good indicator that a person’s Forbidden Genius lies in sophisticated Research of Private Investigation.

That’s the gist of what we would tell any Scorpio, or anyone with a strong Pluto, in a reading.

So, which planets are we talking about?  Ixion (Forbidden Genius), Quaoar (Survival Instincts), Ceres (Sustainability), Klotho (Plotting a New Timeline), and Vertex (Intuition) are all at the Midpoint of Scorpio, which just happens to be (there go those Coincidences again!) where Transiting Klotho and Sappho (Starting a New Timeline based on Self-Love) happen to be sitting as we speak, making their T-Square to the 7 August Full Moon.

Whoa, this is Big.  The Midpoint of Scorpio is one of the Four Horsefolk of Ego Death, so we probably have a case of chronic Self-Attack (that is Ego-Attack, not Soul-Attack).  Sir Self-Lance-a-Lot.  All very strongly Lit Up this week.  So we’d prescribe a strong ongoing dose of Poor-Sweethearts.  Can we even interpret a Klotho-Sappho Transit, Square to a Full Moon, sitting on a natal Ixion-Quaoar-Ceres-Klotho-Vertex Stellium?

Oops, have to interrupt again.  A Stellium (three or more planets in the same place) isn’t easy.  What would we tell someone with a Stellium in their chart, to help them Learn to Appreciate their Uniqueness?

Well, the Culture we grow up in has certain Differentiations that are an integral part of the Culture.  For instance, Boys are different from Girls, and never the twain shall meet.  What fireworks have been going on the USofA when that Differentiation is Challenged!  The youngsters understand that they’re both just People, but the Differentiation is so ingrained in the brains of the oldsters that they fight it all the way to the “Supreme” Court, and Obsess (!) on it.

So when we have two or more planets in the same place, we don’t know the Difference.  Folks who start a Life when Mars and Venus are Conjoined (in or close to the same Degree) have no idea that there’s any Difference at all!  So they have a difficult time Relating to, and Being Related to by, anyone who’s Obsessed with the Difference, because their brains are wired very differently.

And that’s just two planets.  With a five-planet Stellium, the difficulty of Communicating with Others is multiplied many times.  To start with, only 2.5% of us will have a 5-planet Stellium (using 45 planets), so we can expect to be able to Communicate at all with one person in 40.  However, what’s the probability that the next person with a 5-planet Stellium is going to have a Stellium that includes the same five planets?

Without breaking any blood vessels in my brain, I’d guess that would be something like 1/9 to the fourth or fifth power, or about one person in 60,000, although that assumes that the 45 planets are distributed randomly around the Zodiac, which is far from true.  You could start a worldwide club, advertising on the internet to connect with everyone who started Life with a Ixion-Quaoar-Ceres-Klotho-Vertex Stellium.  You might end up with just the people who were born on the same day and year as you.

And now you’re going to run into another problem.  Very few of these people will have ever learned to Love themselves, even if their Stellium isn’t in Scorpio.  When you meet a Soulmate, if your Self-Love isn’t Total, you’re going to Project your Self-Rejection all over one another, and end up hating one another, very soon.  I once introduced two people with very similar, very unusual birth charts, Scorpios even, and they became housemates.  That lasted about a month before they ran screaming from one another.

So until you Learn to Love your own Uniqueness fairly thoroughly, you may need to settle for non-intimate Relationships for a while.  Look for people who are already Ascended or Enlightened, who may be able to Accept you Exactly As You Are, even if they’re not like you at all – they may even find your Uniqueness fascinating.  There should be a reasonable number of those folks around.  You won’t be their Onliest…

Since you are a shining light
There’s many that you’ll see
But I have to deal with envy
When you choose the precious few
Who’ve left their pride on the other side of
Coming back to you

as Leonard Cohen put it, but at least you’ll be Accepted, and you’ll get a taste of what it will be like to Love your Uniqueness, till you Lesrn to Obsess on Loving your Uniqueness.

Well, we know that this person, on the Soul Level, Intends in this Lifetime to Get to the Bottom of Self-Abuse (and I don’t mean self-pleasuring) once and for all (Klotho-Sappho).  So they probably “hired” parents and other significant adults that programmed a good deal of persistent Self-Rejection (Ixion-Quaoar-Ceres) into them as Children.  That’s how we do it – whatever we Intend to Let Go Of permanently in a Lifetime, we on the Soul level make sure we get a big dose of it, so we’ll Recognize it and be Motivated to Change the Pattern.

So, with Mars and Atropos on the Full-Moon Sun, it would be a fabulous time to start writing a series of Angry letters, that they don’t intend to send, to their Childhood Programmers, so they can begin Getting to the Bottom of their Abandoned Genius’s Real Feelings.  We can Learn about Blame and Responsibility later.

Oh, did I forget to mention that Jupiter (Amplification) and Sappho (Self-Love) are also in Scorpio?  So our friend is even more Determined to break out of her prison of Self-Admonishment, as she has Chosen (on the Soul level) to Obsess about her Amplified Desire for Self-Love!

Did someone say Obsession?  Damn Right!  Obsessed with this prison-break, and for damn good reasons!!!  It’s a central theme of their Soul-level Plan for the Lifetime!  So come Hell or High Water, they need to start Obsessing (and PIAVAing) on Learning how to Celebrate Obsession like it is the Incredible Gift to themselves that it truly is!  Set a timer, and Celebrate Obsession at least once an hour, every day.

Okay, with the preliminaries out of the way we can get down the the meat of the issue.  Their Ixion-Quaoar-Ceres-Klotho-Vertex Stellium is Opposed by Chiron (Despair and Miracle).  That’s like a dagger held by her Programmers, slicing little chunks out of her skin constantly.  To move from Despair to Miracle we need to Empathize with our Despair.  “You Poor Sweetheart, you really Feel Down on yourself, don’t you.”  Now, we know that Changing the Subject (which gets the mind and old Karmic Patterns out of the way so they don’t re-up the Despair) won’t be easy – that’s the whole issue, isn’t it.

So we can try building a strong practice of Tapping (YouTube link above).  “Even though I’m Obsessing about this Despair, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself.”  Measuring the Intensity of Feeling (0 to 10) before and after each of many Iterations will be important – as long as you’re getting any reduction, keep Tapping, till you get close to zero.  If you aren’t getting reduction, try alternating with Poor-Sweethearts, or Dancing, or doing anything Different.  This is Multi-Lifetime stuff, so you need to be Obsessive about working on it, but then, that’s your specialty, eh?

Phew, that’s a lot, isn’t it.  Are we done?  Not a chance.  Mercury, of all people, makes a T-Square across the Opposition between the Ixion-Quaoar-Ceres-Klotho-Vertex Stellium and Chiron.  Now we have to interrupt again, since T-Squares are quite difficult, so we have to give our standard speech about how to Love a T-Square…

A T-Square is like a graduate seminar.  We Expect to be able to “get it right” once in a while, so we can feel halfway Competent.  But with a T-Square, there is no “getting it right.”  In a graduate seminar there are no right Answers, only clever and relevant Questions.  No matter how long anyone Lives a T-Square, they’ll never Feel Satisfied about it, until they Learn to Appreciate that on a Soul level they’ve adopted this Issue as a Lifetime Learning Opportunity, and each time it arises – which is likely to be daily – they’ll be working on a new, more subtle and broader, version of the same Lesson.

It’s pass/fail, and you only pass when you Recognize that this is your Lifetime Study Project, and Honor yourself for the Fact that you actually know a Hell of a lot more about it than most anyone else on the Planet, because you wrestle with it daily.  You begin to Change a “bad” Habit by Noticing that you’re Doing it again, and Congratulating yourself for Noticing rather than Cursing yourself for Doing it again – substituting positive reinforcement for negative reinforcement, because reinforcement is cumulative.

So when you Notice that you’re working on that Issue again, Congratulate yourself for looking at it from yet another Perspective, and Honor yourself for all of the Perspectives you’ve already Discovered, rather than Indulging your Frustration at not getting it Right yet again, you’ll shift your Perspective toward what is otherwise one of your greatest Frustrations.

That’s what T-Squares are all about.  Now, what about this Mercury T-Square?  Well a Mercury T-Square (until you make the shift we just talked about) means that your mind is always picking at you.  Anxiety ‘R’ Us, and it’s not just Worry, it’s Negative Self-Talk.  So we have to Learn to Notice that we’re Doing Negative Self-Talk again, Congratulate ourself for Noticing, and Honor ourself for how Skilled we’ve actually become at dealing with Negative Self-Talk.

If a friend complained to you about their Negative Self-Talk, I’ll bet you could give them a thousand suggestions for dealing with it.  You’re a World Expert on Negative Self-Talk.  You could write best-sellers about it.  You need to Honor yourself for that, even if it doesn’t Feel True at first.  I guarantee you, it is True.

Now, we’re dealing with Negative Self-Talk about Chiron Opposite a Ixion-Quaoar-Ceres-Klotho-Vertex Stellium, which isn’t chicken-feed.  With Quaoar-Ceres-Klotho-Vertex as part of your Stellium, a deep part of you (with strong Scorpio, Diving Deep is one of your greatest Skills) knows Intuitively (Vertex) that your Survival (Quaoar) is Assured (Ceres) once you Begin (Klotho) to Love Yourself Exactly As You Are.  You just don’t know where to start because no one has ever Mirrored your True Self to you.

Then we add Ixion. We have to interrupt again for our Learn-to-Love-Ixion speech…

Ixion was the Bad Boy of the Greek Pantheon, who was basically a sociopath who thought all rules applied to everyone else (like that fellow in the house that’s pained white and being remodeled).  Well, talk to any Accomplished Genius, and they’ll tell you they didn’t get there by following other people’s rules.  To live Genius you need to break as many rules as you can get away with.

But you’ll always be condemned for it.  So, not actually being a sociopath, you’ll need to develop a thick skin about Criticism from Others.  And with your parents and other Programmers probably very Critical people, you’re going to have a lot of Olde Reactions to Criticism, and probably “Leave your Body” (space out) when someone starts Criticizing you.  Well, you probably want to enlist some friends and Act Out a thousand Criticism scenarios, till you can Stay Present with Yourself when being Criticized, and Learn when Defending yourself is a waste of time that’ll just get more Criticism, and How to Defend yourself when it’s worth it (ie, with a Relationship you Want to Keep).

In Cultures that Value Conformity, Ixion is Rejected out of hand.  That’s why we refer to that part of ourself as our Forbidden or Abandoned or Pathological Genius, and refer to Recovery of that part of ourself as our Genius Project.  It’s a Big Project for everyone, but especially important for you.  Eventually, once you become the World’s foremost Psychoanalyst, or the World’s most Unique Artist who Communicates with parts of people that have never been Communicated to before ever, you’ll understand how Unique you are, and Honor it.

But meanwhile, there’s homework to be done, because you’re probably in the Habit of giving your Unique Genius more Negative Self-Talk than anyone.  So you’ll have to Learn to Notice that you’re Doing Negative Self-Talk about your Unmirrored Uniqueness again, Congratulate yourself for Noticing, and Honor yourself for how Skilled you’ve actually become at dealing with Negative Self-Talk about your Uniqueness

Lots of work ahead, but at least now you have a curriculum.

What’s that?  Oh, we aren’t quite done?  Oh yeah, remember that Jupiter-Sappho in Scorpio?  Well, it happens to be in a “Grand Cross,” Opposite a Stellium of Chaos (Unlimited Potential), Sedna (Fear), Chariklo (Self-Confidence), and Moira (Choosing Consciousness), with Sedna Stationary (Strong), Square to a Stellium of Sun (your Essence), Atropos (Endings), and Mnemosyne (Memory), which is in turn Opposite to a Stellium of Orcus (Breaking Vows), Hylonome (Escaping from Archetypes), and Lachesis (Duration), with Lachesis Exactly Stationary (very Strong).  All this is actually enormously Positive, but there’s a lot in it that needs to be Learned to Love.

We won’t take that up now, we’ll save it for after you’ve digested some of the earlier homework, which is more than ample.  The earlier homework is Lit Up Bigtime by the Full Moon, so it’s a more current assignment anyway.  This later Grand Cross is Lit Up only by the Transiting Conjunction of Varuna (the Life Force) and Veritas (Truth), which is actually quite a lot, but nothing compared to how much your Mercury T-Square and Ixion Stellium are Lit Up.

Oh, also, when you’re ready, remind me to talk about the “Vacancy” to your Mercury T-Square.

And, once you’ve started on the earlier homework in earnest, we can talk about that friend you mentioned, and see how they might, by virtue of their own birth chart, inadvertently trigger either your Mercury-Chiron-Ixion-et al T-Square or your Lachesis-et al Grand Cross, or both.  We’ll also need to cover Blame and Responsibility then.

Oh, and since Pluto (Transformation) is similar to Scorpio, and likely to be involved in Obsession, we should eventually look at that too.  It’s after all Conjunct Saturn (The Most Important Thing), so that’s a strong indication that Obsession is actually your Greatest Skill, you just need to Learn to Love it.  Also, Pluto-Saturn makes a T-Square across your Nodes (Why You Took This Lifetime), so that’s another indicator that This is the Lifetime you Chose, on the Soul level, to become the World’s greatest Expert on Obsession, and once and for all Let Go of your Ego Attachment to it, and Let Go of your Rejection of Obsession and of yourself

Plus, Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) is on your North Node (Your Mission in the Lifetime) and Moon-Venus (Your Instincts and Values) is on your South Node (The Karmic Impediments to your Mission that you Chose on the Soul level to help you Accomplish your Mission in the Lifetime, which Impediments happen to hide the Skills you need to Accomplish your Mission), further complicating this T-Square.

That’s a lot, but Remember that, as the Findhorn Transformation Game says, the Hardest Assignments are only given to the Best People.

4 July X – Victimhood II

July 5, 2017

Before we launch into the 6 July Haumea Station, the final Act in the 4 July Drama, we should point out that the Grace in a Diamond Star is somewhat Conditional.  The Trines (long blue lines in the picture in the previous post) happen on their own…

  • Greater Consciousness of our Fears will lower our Self-Sabotage and incline us more toward Community (Venus-Sedna to Hopi-Makemake)
  • Embracing what we would normally Avoid will Open us to Greater Life Energy (Stationary Chiron to Atropos-Varuna)

but the Sextiles (short blue lines) that actually form the bottom of the Bowl of Grace and allow it to Hold Water…

  • Confronting our Fears as Lovingly as we can (Stationary Chiron to Venus-Sedna)
  • Assigning greater Value to Life-Enhancing Energies and less Value to our Fears (Venus-Sedna to Atropos-Varuna)
  • Channeling greater Energy toward the Collective (Atropos-Varuna to Hopi-Makemake)

require that we take the first step.  And the Finger of God tells us exactly what steps to take. 

The Quincunx (that’s Quinc=5 Unx=12 or 5/12ths of the Zodiac, or 5 Signs – the long green lines) is about Curiosity, and Curiosity, if we don’t short-circuit it by seeing it as a Problem to be Solved, is first cousin to Love, as they both Eschew Judgment.  We might even say that “Now these four things abide: Faith, Hope, Love, Curiosity; but the greatest of these is Curiosity,” as Love wilts when Judgment or any other Either/Or replaces Curiosity.

We want to Experience the Curiosity as Awe or Wonder; if we see it as a Problem and Solve it, we’ve summarily dropped back into Either/Or and blown our Opportunity for Miracles.  As with Confusion; if we try to Resolve Confusion rather than Enjoying it as a Wonder, we blow our Opportunity to Expand our Consciousness.

A Finger of God, or “Yod” – which translates to “Pay Attention!” – is composed of two Quincunxes pointing to the same place.  The “same place” is what we’re instructed to Pay Attention To, in this case Becoming Fully Responsible to our Survival Instincts (Quaoar-Pholus-Galactic Center).  We convert the Quincunxes to PIAVAs in order to Avoid left-braining or intellectualizing them, which would Freeze the potential for Miracles.  We might use something like…

  • “Ganeshi, please Remove All Obstacles to my Trusting my Survival Instincts more highly than my Fears, and Teaching others how to do the same” (Venus-Sedna to Quaoar-Pholus-Galactic Center)
  • “I Wonder how I can Lovingly and Gently Let Go of Inhibitions to my Life Energy and Be More Responsive to the Needs of the Planet” (Atropos-Varuna to Quaoar-Pholus-GC)

We’ve added more-than-Personal terms because of the presence of the Galactic Center.

Of course there are some issues which do Require Plan-Execute Problem-Solving.  As with Yintegrity, where…

To Live Yintegrity in a Yangtegrity World, we may need to minimize our Commitments, be Willing to Renegotiate often, and to Make Amends where Renegotiation isn’t possible and the Relationship is a Keeper.  To review, in a Yangtegrity like the Patriarchy, we’re expected to Do What We Said We Would, while in Yintegrity we Do What We Feel Like Doing, Moment to Moment…

we may not always have time to finish a PIAVA by Changing the Subject and later Paying Attention.  For instance, if we’re living six feet above mean high tide, we may need to prioritize starting the process of moving to higher ground, then PIAVA ways to make the move Effortless, and ways to Effectively help our fellow Earthlings (of all Orders and Species) Attend to their Survival.

  ♥    ♥    ♥    ♥    ♥    ♥    ♥ 

We also find a big “Quintile Yod” – two Biquintiles pointing to the same place (the Quintile is one fifth of the way ’round the Circle, the Biquintile 2/5th – the orange lines below) – in the Chiron Station chart.  The Fifth Harmonic and Quintile are about Learning and Teaching, and the QYod says “Pay Attention to Learning about the planet at the Focus.”  As it did in the Diamond Star, the Chiron Station also plays a supporting role in the QYod…

The Star of the QYod (as in the other Finger of Yod, the planet being pointed to is the Pay Attention To This! planet) is Vesta, which symbolizes our Unconscious Beliefs, which are often our Limiting Beliefs.  Vesta isn’t within our usual day-to-day three-Degree Sensitivity Range to be counted as Conjunct the North Node (our Destination or Mission in the Lifetime), but at four Degrees it’s plenty close to count as Conjunct for Birth purposes, and the whole 4-July Drama is about Rebirth, so we’ll count it.

The North Node Initiates Vesta, starting a new Cycle, on 8 July at 27 Leo, which is about Total Focus on Inner Spiritual Attainment.  In general, Vesta-Nodes Cycles are about Cleansing our Unconscious Beliefs.  The Vesta-North Node Cycle is about Creating new Patterns that Support our Mission, and the Vesta-South Node Cycle about Becoming Aware of Archetypes that Inhibit our Mission.  Remember that our South-Node Patterns (aka Karma) include our Held Emotions that hide the Skills we need to move toward our Mission.

So we are at the half-way point, or the Blooming, of the current Vesta-South Node Cycle, which began in June 2015 at 6 Aries, “A square with one of its sides brightly illuminated.”  So yes, our South Node Patterns, like our astrological Squares, are Challenges, and one of our Challenges has been Brightly Illuminated since June 2015, never more so than at the Present Moment.  That should be pretty Easy – which of your Lifetime Bugaboos has been most prominent over the last two years, and is most prominent now?

Based on my own Experience, I’m guessing that you’re noticing Surprising major Changes in your Response to that Pattern as we speak, and that those major Changes will greatly color the character of your 4-July Rebirth, and facilitate your Focus on Spiritual Atunement.  The idea that Spirit is something to be Attained is a bit old-fashioned.  Spirit is ever-present; it’s the Ego that just needs to Surrender to it.  Striving, as an extension of the Ego, moves us backward, in spite of what Goethe said about Wer immer strehbend.

For me it’s been Chocolate and her best bud Sugar (Organic of course, as non-Organic Sugar is invariably laced with toxic Glyphosate).  When it’s an abscess making it a Choice between Pain and Sugar, the Clear Choice is No Pain.  But otherwise, giving up Pleasure is Anti-Life.  Then there’s Moderation, always a fine idea, but the Choice between Pleasure and Moderation isn’t an Easy one without strong Incentives. 

Well, a few days ago it spontaneously occurred to me that I might be able to get away with Allowing myself the Pleasure of Chocolate and Sugar if I eat Vegetables first.  Then I realized that I could Interpret the urge for Chocolate as a signal to Meditate, without making any Conclusions about what might follow the Meditation.  I’m sure I’ve made a ton of PIAVAs about this, though I don’t recall any specifically.  I should keep a log – otherwise, how can I accurately Pay Attention?

The “foot” of the Vesta QYod is the Quintile from the Chiron Station to Pluto.  The Changes to the Lifetime Bugaboo that are so Surprising and Evident now are probably Pluto’s work, as Pluto’s processes are pretty much Mandatory, bypassing the Ego entirely.  Even without a deliberate course of Poor-Sweethearts, the Chiron corner is busily transforming the Suffering (including Guilt, which is Suffering) which our Bugaboo has brought us for the last two years, into Miracles.  I mean, how many times have you tried to shift these Patterns, and how many times has your success been marginal at best?  And now, Whoosh, suddenly there are Miracles.

So it’s a Timing issue, and a Timing issue always Asks what Septiles or Seventh-Harmonic Angles are involved, since the Seventh Harmonic is in charge of Timing.  Without searching the dwarf planets for Septiles, which would probably take a couple of days, one Septile Yod (a third planet Triseptile from two planets Septile to one another) does pop up in the Chiron Station chart, pointing at Saturn-Ixion from a base of the Septile between Venus-Sedna and Mars.  So maybe we’re getting close enough to our Forbidden Genius that they’re able to provide clues more helpful than just “Who do we hate?” since while that one’s Obvious, it’s not Easy.

We also notice a Venus-Sedna Mjölnir (a third planet Trioctile to each end of a Square) emerging from the Square between Moon-Jupiter and Juno.  So Expansive and Consciousness-Growing Epiphanies are also in order about Relationships between Fear and our Values.

4 July IV – Embracing Paradox

June 26, 2017

We’ll talk a lot more about that complex Sedna-Square-Nodes chart (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/06/25/4-july-iii/) between now and 4 July.  But there are two simultaneous charts that are also important .  One is the chart of the Sappho and Klotho Stations… 

  • The Sappho (Self-Love) Station is Exact at 2pm PDT 3 July in 15 Scorpio
  • The Klotho (Initiating a New Timeline) Station at 9am PDT 4 July at 11 Scorpio 
  • The Sedna-Nodes Square is Exact late morning 4 July, and the Moon completes the Grand Cross at 3pm PDT 4 July, in 27 of the Fixed Signs 

And the other chart, which we’ll also talk about later, is the Station of Haumea (Rebirth) at 9pm PDT 6 July, in 23 Libra.

While the Stations may not seem simultaneous, in the three-day span between 2pm PDT 3 July and 9pm PDT 6 July, Sappho, Klotho, and Haumea move less than two Arcminutes.  The Full Moon as seen from your house appears to be more than fifteen times as wide as that distance.  In other words, while the Exact Stations may be several hours apart, the planets are all simultaneously Standing Still, or very close to it.

Given this collection of simultaneous Stations, another Big Rebirth is the obvious Order of the Day, and it seems that we’re likely to be Choosing to be Reborn into another Life of Fear, or one where we’ve Let Go of Fear, replacing it with Love or Curiosity.  The Stations deserve, and will get, their own posts, but it’s very relevant in the context of this Rebirth to consider the two Yin Gates that appear on the graph in the previous post.  They’re…

  • Sedna Opposite Moon, splitting the Golden Rectangle composed of Ceres, which is Out of Bounds (Strong Sustainability), Pandora (who deserves her own paragraph), Uranus-Eris (Yintegrity), and the Saturn-Ixion-Pholus-Quaoar-Galactic Center Stellium (The Most Important Thing here is to Follow the Command from Headquarters to Take Charge of Recovering our Forbidden Genius)
  • Pandora Opposite Uranus-Eris, splitting the Golden Rectangle of Sedna (Fear), Hopi (Respect for All Things), Moon (Manifestation), and Chiron-Lachesis (Choosing between Enduring or Transforming Pain)

The Sedna-Moon Yin Gate is drawn with heavy lines, and the remainder of the overlapping Pandora-Uranus/Eris Yin Gate in lighter lines. 

A Yin Gate is formed when an Opposition splits the short side of a Golden Rectangle.  The Golden Rectangle is drawn in blue; blue because it represents Grace, and Golden because the ratio between the lengths of the two sides is the Golden Angle of Sacred Geometry.  The Oppositions are shown in red (symbolizing Energy or Motivation).  The green lines represent Curiosity.  Curiosity, like Love, eschews Judgment, so we regard it as paramount.  The centerpiece of the Yin Gate is the pair of side-by-side green Xs or interlocking Curiosities.

The Moon moves quickly, so it will be within three Degrees of Sensitivity from its Sedna Opposition for only about twelve hours.  However, we’re talking about a major Rebirth, ie, a Birth, so eight Degrees of Sensitivity is more relevant; that’s more like 32 hours, or the majority of a day on either side of 3pm PDT 4 July.  The Exact Haumea Station falls outside that span, but the important thing is that during the span, Haumea is Stationary.  It means we get a day and a half to check for and correct Birth Defects between the Sedna-Moon Yin Gate and the Haumea Rebirth.

A Yin Gate is a Mystery School, the Objective of which is to Teach us that Paradox demonstrates to us the Inadequacy of our Dualistic orientation toward Life.  Real Life is replete with Contradictions, because Real Life is Unitary and Multifarious (the ultimate Paradox, so to speak), not Dual.  So Contradiction is a sandwich-board painted in big red letters, that says “Here Lies One of Your Limiting Beliefs.” 

However, we’re wearing the sandwich-board, so we can’t see what it says without a Mirror, and of course then it’s backwards.  Hence Blame and Judgment are born; since we can’t read our Limiting Belief, we accuse Other of hypocrisy, since they’re obviously Living a Contradiction.  A Yin Gate is simply a second Mirror that we can use, if we Choose, to view the backwards writing and Witness our Limiting Belief directly.

Okay, Pandora.  Remember that the primary purpose of the Greek Mythologizers was to refute the Matriarchy that was their Heritage, and replace it with the foundations of the Patriarchy.  No Blame, that kind of ping-pong is just what happens when we Live in Duality.  Having awoken one morning with the shocking Realization that they were all spawned by Women, they needed a Story to counteract that horrific Reality.  Hence, Pandora, the alleged first woman in their Mythos, and, appropriately for a Patriarchal if not downright Misogynistic Story line, she introduced Evil into the World, mostly in the form of Seduction.

It’s quite easy to find training in the Plan-Do-Study-Act Masculine or Dynamic Creation process.  Except as an adjunct to Power-Over Religions, it hasn’t been nearly as easy, till recently, to find training in the Feminine or Magnetic Creation process, or PIAVA and its variations.  It’s considered Magic, and to many, Magic is always Black.  That is, even without Patriarchal Intimidation and Bullying, we still labor under the Limiting Belief that the Feminine is “Evil.”  So we see asteroid Pandora as symbolizing the Choice to maintain or Clear that Belief.

The Moon, meanwhile, boasts three levels of Symbolism.  At the lowest level it represents variability, or our “Random” Emotions.  Once we stop including Intuition in the Evil category (as “inferior” to Logic, Heaven Forbid), however, those “Random” Emotions become Instincts, the second level.  If we’re attempting to Power-Over someone, we definitely see their Instincts toward Survival and Sovereignty as Evil.  The third level of the Moon is Manifestation.  Lunar Emotions are the Glue that holds Energy together into Matter and recognizable Form.  It’s not necessarily that the Moon Creates; the Moon symbolizes Creation, and specifically Magnetic Creation. 

So we have a training in the Paradoxical Relationships between Manifestation (Moon) and Fear (Sedna) and a cross-training (symbolized by the overlap between the two Yin Gates) in the Paradoxical Relationships between Yintegrity (Uranus-Eris) and Magnetism (Pandora).

For instance, if we’re in Yintegrity, we have no need for Manipulation and Guile, right?  Bullshit.  We were trained by the Patriarchs never to lie about chopping down Cherry Trees, but in fact, Truth is always on a Need-to-Know basis.  For one thing, we don’t owe them our Time, and most of all, we don’t want to cast our Pearls before Pink Animals (or any other color).  Quite simply, we demean ourself when we do that.  You don’t Teach children what’s not age-appropriate, and the same goes for Teaching adults what’s not maturity-appropriate or Spiritually-appropriate.  People need to earn your Trust.

And everyone knows that we can’t Manifest when we’re in Fear; we need to deal with the Fear before we can fuel our Manifestation Engine with the necessary Passion.  Again, Bullshit.  Fear is one of the more Passionate Emotions we can Feel, and what do we Create when in Fear?  More Fear.  It’s exponential.  Two units of unprocessed Fear Create four, and four units Create sixteen.

Are any of our Judgments not based on Fear?  Maybe “What Am I Afraid Of?” should be our Mantra, or “Who am I afraid of?”  Followed by  “How does that Mirror my Limiting Beliefs” or better yet, “I Wonder how that Mirrors my Limiting Beliefs” followed by Changing the Subject then Paying Attention (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/).  Once we Locate the Emotion of Fear in our Body, that’s behind the Fearsome or Anxious thoughts, several iterations of Tapping (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4) usually resolves the Emotional Overload.  From there we can move toward Love or Curiosity, or simply move on to our next Fear.

There are two very special Fears that encompass a great deal of our Limiting Beliefs, and which especially hinder our Relationships.  These are Fear of Abandonment and Fear of Suffocation.  Most of us emphasize one or the other, though most commonly we have both.  These are both so ancient that they’re barely Personal, though we all have Personal Experience in our backgrounds to reinforce the Karma

No Huper Survives without Community.  To Fear that our Community (or our Partner, or our employer, or our family, or …) is Rejecting us, is to fall under the grip of the ancient Archetype of Abandonment.  We need to Learn where we Feel that in our Body, Lovingly and Gently Embrace it there, and become Ferociously Mindful for any thought that reinforces it, replacing it with a PIAVA that we find our Tribe, with its Unconditional Acceptance and Unfailing Protection.  Yes, no Protection is totally Unfailing, but we can PIAVA it – maybe that’s just a Limiting Belief.

Our Fear of Abandonment is one of the weaknesses that the Patriarchy uses, quite skillfully, to keep us under their thumbs.  And that’s our Fear of Suffocation, our Fear that someone will Control us and Prevent us from Exercising our True Self.  Fear of Suffocation is an Archetype as old as the Individual Soul.  I don’t encounter it as often as I encounter Fear of Abandonment, but it’s there, and it’s important to bring into Consciousness where it can be Transmogrified.

When we can replace “Don’t tell me what to do, you Bastard!” with “Oh, there’s my Suffocation Archetype again!” and replace “Shit, what if I get laid off?” with “Oh, there’s my Abandonment Archetype again!” we will regain a great deal of the Power we’ve been allowing our thoughts to drain out of us.  Next time you’re watching the News, or dealing with a difficult person who’s important in your Life, watch to see how many times these Archetypes arise.  That difficult person may not be draining your Power on purpose, but I can guarantee you that the News is.

Marilyn Raffaele has Channeled an Arcturian Teaching for us around Fear…

Excerpts follow…

“Dear ones, be not afraid of what you are seeing and hearing, for these are the symbols of a changing universe, the dying throes of old energy that is soon to become part of another world in which [those of] you who have chosen to awaken need not take part.  All have been given the choice to ascend.  Most are unaware of this, but on the deeper levels, everyone is choosing.

“[Do not] fear for or be concerned about family and friends who may be choosing not to awaken at this time.  Their Higher Self in its infinite wisdom may know that they need more three dimensional type experiences before they will be ready to leave them behind.  Every person will ascend into higher levels of awareness at some point in their journey, it is inevitable.  [Humanity’s] true nature is Divine and [it] is not meant to spend forever living the experiences of illusory beliefs.”

“True peace is a peace that the three dimensional state of consciousness knows nothing about and thus can never successfully create through treaties, wars, dominance, and punishment – ideas based in the sense of separation.  Because ‘peace’ created through these methods is based in duality and separation, sooner or later the ‘good side’ will flip to the ‘bad side,’ for the belief in duality always manifests as pairs of opposites.  Real peace can only manifest when the substance from which it is formed is present–consciousness.

“Peace is the natural expression of Love, the realization that all is ONE within the ONE.  Why would anyone want to hate, hurt, deceive, lie, kill, and make to suffer, itself?  It is only the dense energies of personal and collective unevolved states of consciousness that see power over others as an appropriate action to bring about peace.  Peace is the birthright of every person because it is the reality – globally and individually.”

“At this time there are many very evolved souls on earth, here to be examples to others as well as to add their Light to the collective.  They did not need to come in order to resolve karma or learn lessons of love, because they have already done this work on earth or on other planets.

“Seeing the need of humans for help at this powerful time of change, these souls lovingly chose to assist. You can see them in all walks of life doing seemingly ordinary things and will recognize them by a loving but often intense energy as they work to bring deeper awareness into situations where it is needed.  They are often intuitively felt as being powerful, but to human eyes look ordinary.

“Actions of love occur daily, but you are primarily served the negative from most news sites.  This is why it is important to limit your involvement in the news because it can easily pull you back into old energy.  It is fine to be aware of what is going on around you, but do not align with it.  It is the same idea as when you align with the energy of some low resonating person and then find yourself drained of energy, which is how the term ‘energy vampires’ came about.

“In all situations, and with all people, places, things, and events keep your energy field clear, filled with light, and not in alignment with any lower resonating energy that may be present.  Lower resonating energies have a sense of ‘heaviness’ about them which is easily felt in some places and with certain people.  Do not fear it for it has no power other than what you give it, but be aware of not aligning or identifying with it.  You may just choose to leave.”

“Up to this point, serious seekers have been allowed to continue in some of their old energy ways without much repercussion, but because the resonance of earth has become so much more rarified, everyone’s corners of belief are being swept out and the spiritual leash has become very short.

“Remember this when small events and actions once considered unimportant, start to feel very important and may even bring in a sense of guilt which you don’t understand.  This is because your energy field has become increasingly more attuned to the higher frequencies of Light, causing you to easily sense when you are out of alignment.”

Raising Vibrations

June 18, 2017

From John Perkins’s The World Is as You Dream It (pp.96-7)…

” ‘To camay,’ Manco [a Quechua Shaman] explained, ‘is to breathe unity into.  No corresponding word exists in Spanish.  Even the idea is difficult to express, for it seems that you northerners don’t believe such things.  In our lives, it is a very important concept, perhaps the most important.  We have several related words: churay, ruray, and supay.  These have to do with creating.  But camay is the most powerful.

“He knelt before a gnarled old agave, a special plant to Andean people that is related to the aloe.  ‘This plant appeared to be dead a year ago.  I camayed into it every day, and now look.’  He patted it tenderly.  ‘Old, but very much alive.’  He stood.  ‘We are all one.’  He turned slowly in a circle, his hands at his side, palms out.  ‘When one of our parts is out of balance, others can help to bring them back.  That is when we camay.’ … ‘The blowing we do during a healing is a form of camaying.  We breathe unity into the sick or injured person to restore balance.’ “

The astrological correlate of Restoring Balance is in particular the Trioctile – three eighths of the way ’round the Zodiac – and in general the Octile, one eighth of the way.  The Eighth Harmonic is itself about Rebalancing, and we favor three of them because the Third Harmonic is all about Love with Wisdom.  We’re especially fond of the Mjölnir or “Hammer of Thor” Configuration, which is a third planet Trioctile to each end of a Square.

Conventional or Ego- and Fate-Reinforcing astrology sees the Square as a Malefic, and the Hammer of Thor as Destructive.  From the Perspective of Spiritual or Ego- and Karma-Transforming astrology, the Square represents Mastery through Challenge, and the Mjölnir, like its predecessor the Vedic Vajra, symbolizes Lightning, Illumination, or Epiphany.  Our recent Stations include a couple of Mjölnirs… 

The long lavender lines are Trioctiles, the short ones Octiles.  The red Squares are, of course, Bioctiles – two eighths equals one fourth.  The Square is ultimately also about Illumination.  Jupiter is the Focus of a Mjölnir across the Sedna-South Node Square, meaning that the Jupiter Station at the Full Moon, and its ongoing Mjölnir, has Illuminated and will continue to Illuminate the Places where we Fear our own Karma – that’s basically the Regressed Hellhole I found myself in through much of the last fortnight. 

Of course we Fear our Karma – that’s the nature of Held Emotions, Emotions that we can’t Tolerate, that we’d rather Die than Re-Experience.  Which is precisely the point – we need an Ego Death here to Expand the way Jupiter would like us to.  The Jupiter T-Square crosses the Opposition between Vertias (Truth) and Juno-Chariklo (Bringing Self-Confidence under Conscious Control), but it’s also a Diamond Star, as Jupiter is at the Focus of a Finger of God from the Venus-Neptune (Our Spiritual Values) Sextile.  Which is to say that Jupiter would like us to – and is offering to help us to – Transform our Relationship to Fear and Held Emotions by Rebalancing the Relationships between our Spiritual Values, Consciousness, and Self-Confidence.

Which, incidentally, has Sedna Squaring the Nodes.  This Square will be Exact – a Can-Opener if there ever was one – on 3 July.  So we’re very lucky to have had the Jupiter Station Illuminating this Process before we get submerged into the depths of it, so we know to bring an extra oxygen tank.  The slower a planet, the deeper it’s Influence in the Unconscious.  Sedna takes fifty times as long as Pluto to make it’s way ’round the Zodiac once.  Most of the other new dwarf planets are called Plutoids, because they’re basically similar to Pluto.  Sedna is so far out that they made a whole new class for it – Sednoids.  So far it’s the only one with a name.

So, what is it that will make you soil your knickers before you can make it to the loo?  Aliens landing in your back yard?  Fire taking down your apartment block?  Nucular War?  A Lunatic in charge?  A Fairy landing on your thumb?  A Plant talking to you?  Abandonment?  Suffocation?  Your neighbors at the door with pitchforks and torches?  Not enough Money?  A Terroirist Attack?  May be a good time to do some pre-planning.

The other Mjölnir is Focused on Varuna (the Life Force), from the Square between recently-Stationary Neptune and Lilith, suggesting that Balancing your Spiritual Beliefs and your Self-Sovereignty will enhance your Life Force; or, as Michael Roads frequently says, “it’s not enough to Believe it, you have to Live it.”  The Neptune T-Square is also a Diamond Star, and one corner of a Water Grand Trine besides. 

Our third recent Station was Makemake; note that it’s Octile to both ends of the Vesta-Sappho Square – We’ll Manifest more easily when we Align our Self-Love with our Unconscious Beliefs.

Dan Scranton’s latest contribution to this issue…

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

Greetings.  We are the Arcturian Council.  We are pleased to connect with all of you.

“Your frequency matters.  Your frequency, the rate at which you vibrate the energy of your consciousness, becomes your life experience.  It is as simple as that.  However, you have a lot to think about and a lot to do, and you certainly have a lot to process emotionally.  All of that leaves you with very little of your precious time to tend to your frequency.

“You would be very well served by giving it your attention at least periodically throughout your day.  It would be advantageous to you to have reminders for yourselves, to check in and feel how high or low that frequency is.

“You can tell by what you are feeling, but you can also tell by what you are thinking, and even what you are doing.  Certainly, your physical bodies are wonderful feedback mechanisms.  If there is something going on with you physically, then there is certainly something going on with you frequency-wise.  There is always some underlying vibrational cause to what you are experiencing in the physical.

“So if you pay attention to what you are doing, what you are thinking, what you are saying, and how you are feeling physically and emotionally, you will become aware of your vibration.  Once you become aware of it, the next part is to tune into it, to zero in on it.

“You do that by going within.  Pay attention to where you feel particular vibrations.  Pay attention because it serves you to, and because by giving it your attention, you automatically shift it.  You automatically shift the frequency of your vibration by intending to do so, and by focusing on it you awaken yourselves.

“You are in a constant state of awakening now.  The easiest way for you to experience an awakening is to feel into your energetic bodies.  Your energetic bodies don’t just surround you.  They can also be accessed within your physical frame, your physical structure.  And giving them your attention, giving your physical and energetic and your emotional bodies your attention, is all it takes to raise your frequency.

“We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”

Jupiter Full Moon II

June 8, 2017

The Full Moon will trigger 15-22 of the Mutable Signs (Sagittarius, Gemini, Pisces, Virgo), which means basically that we’ll be pulling out slivers which prevent complete Self-Love. 

Here’s an example… 

One of you has a Grand Cross in that zone.  Grand Cross folks can be kind of zippy and nervous, because they’re likely to keep a lot of balls in the air at once most of the time.  How does that Feel for you?  Totally Comfortable, or Scattered, or does it give you sort of a perpetual low-key (or worse) level of Anxiety?  Have you long since mastered the Time Management literature?  Do you use lists and calendars and reminders, and frequent reviews of what is The Most Important Thing for the next ten or sixty minutes or two days, to give yourself some undisturbed space to Focus?

When I studied Time Management I realized that if I was always going to Focus on The Most Important Thing moment to moment, I would need to stay Relaxed, because if I didn’t I wouldn’t be able to Intuit what the next moment’s Most Important Thing would be.  If there’s a low humm of Anxiety about you, do you Recognize it as Anxiety (which is really an Emotion), or do you let your mind get lost in the Content of your Anxious thoughts?  By Recognizing Anxiety as Anxiety, as the Inhibition to Intuition and to Present-Moment Clarity that it is, and taking a minute or two to Tap it Out, you might find that your Life gets Easier.

Are you a master of Delegation?  Or does it Feel like you need to do it all yourself?  With Lilith on your North Node, and the Full Moon on it, your Lifelong Stretch into Self-Sovereignty might make you want to avoid feeling like you owe anyone anything.  With Aletheia and Mnemosyne on your South Node, you may suffer from a constant flood of those Vignettes we’ve been talking about.  Do they impact your Self-Sovereignty?  Are they even Related? 

With Hopi on a third corner of your Grand Cross (and Completing the Full Moon’s T-Square), Judging Others probably isn’t very Comfortable for you.  Do those Vignettes lead you to making Conclusions and “Rules” that you hope might prevent Future unpleasantries like some of the Vignettes?  Conclusions and Rules have a way of becoming Judgments that could Limit your relationships with Others, and becoming Limitations that could Limit Self-Sovereignty.

Lachesis T-Squares the Full Moon, and Lachesis is about Time, mostly about How Much Time.  Your Sappho is there.  Are you Unconditionally Self-Loving with Judgment and Limitation to Self-Sovereignty?  With your role in all of those Vignettes?  Maybe it’s Time to make a Decisive and Unconditional move in that Direction?

Yes, lots of apparent Contradictions and Conflicts embedded in Grand Crosses and T-Squares.  But remember that Contradiction, and many Conflicts, are the result of Dualities and we know that Dualities are Illusions because we know that Reality isn’t Dual, it’s Multidimensional, Multifarious, and Unitary besides.  If Reality was a log and you chopped it two, you might have a different name for it now, but it would still be a log.

How can we be Self-Loving when all those Contradictions and Conflicts are going on?  I think the answer might be in the Present Moment.  In this very Present Moment, right now, What Am I Feeling?  Am I totally Loving and Accepting of that Feeling?  Do I know where it seems to reside in my Body?  Can I be Loving with it there? 

Love is Soft and Warm; Fear is Hard and Cold.  Am I Feeling Soft and Warm, or Cold and Hard?  Can I be Loving with Cold and Hard?  Hypothermia would probably make that difficult, but otherwise it’s probably doable.  If I can do this every time I start to get off-center a little, I can return quickly to my Many Tasks.

Multi-Tasking is probably one of the Grand Cross’s greatest Skills.  Do you Honor that in yourself without Judging others who don’t seem to be able to do it?  I’ll wager if you added two additional Tasks to your moment-by-moment list…

  • Recognizing and Embracing Anxiety as an Emotion and rejecting the Temptation to be distracted by the Anxious thoughts
  • Asking “What Am I Feeling Right Now?” and Loving it to death exactly as it is – the Emotion itself, not the Content of the thoughts that arise from it

I’ll bet you could fold those into your Multitasking Skills without much trouble at all, and I’ll bet your other tasks would get Easier, and you’d have more Time to Relax and Enjoy Life a little more.  What do you think?

Jupiter’s almost-simultaneous Station, meanwhile, will Trigger 11-17 Degrees of the Cardinal Signs (Libra, Cancer, Capricorn, Aries).  Those Degrees are all about Perfecting a Project, then Taking it All Apart, and then Laying a Foundation for Something Entirely New from the Pieces.  Of course, Jupiter’s in Libra, so we’re likely to be Perfecting some Social Project, disassembling the Emotions involved, and Opening the Door to a Whole New Spiritual Endeavor.

Jupiter Full Moon

June 7, 2017

Feel the Expansion?  After a total Ego meltdown last weekend, I ran across a review of Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine,

https://deesradreadsandreviews.wordpress.com/2017/05/10/review-eleanor-oliphant-is-completely-fine-by-gail-honeyman-gailhoneyman-vikingbooks/

The review was so good that I went for it, and it turned out to be very cathartic.  Not as heavy and Authentic as The Borderliners, and not as thorough as The Body Keeps the Score, but very Healing nonetheless.  Expanding.

The Full Moon is 6am PDT 9 June at 19 Sagittarius, and the Jupiter Station is an hour later at 14 Libra.  As soon as that peaks we start in on a Makemake Station (Manifestation), which peaks at 8am PDT 15 June at 2 Libra.  The Full Moon is about Remembering What’s Sustainable (Sun Conjunct asteroids Ceres and Mnemosyne) and Remembering that in the 3D World Everything Has a Timeline (T-Square to asteroid Lachesis).  The other side of the Sustainabilty Coin is Letting Go of what isn’t Bottom Line.

Sagittarius is about Letting Go and Moving On, and the Moon at Full isn’t far from Saturn, which symbolizes The Most Important Thing.  Saturn of course still Conjoins Ixion (our Forbidden Genius).  The message is that We Won’t Find our Abandoned Genii by Looking under the Lightpole or Where We Last Saw Her.  Forget about everything you’ve Learned about Her so far, Ask for More Guidance, Let Go of both Doubt and Certainty, and Change the Subject.  She needs to Find you, not the other way around That won’t happen till She’s Ready, and She won’t be Ready until your Love is, quite literally, UnconditionalThis Is about Trust and Self-Love (The Full-Moon Sun is one corner of a Square Fez, which are driven by the diagonal Quincunxes, here Lachesis to Eurydike and Sun to Sappho).

We need to retell the story of Eurydike or Eurydice, who took Opheus for her husband.  Eurydice drove the Sun’s Chariot across the SkyWhile trying to escape a rapist, she was bitten by a poisonous Snake and died quickly.  In his Grief, Orpheus was given permission to retrieve her from the Underworld, on one condition – as he led her back out of Hades, he was Forbidden to Look to see if she still followed.  He turned after he had cleared the exit, but she hadn’t done so yet, so she was lost.  So Eurydike is about Trust, and Trust that Every Prayer Is Answered is The Most Important sort of Trust you can have.  Next week, Makemake will agree.

Hades of course is another name for Pluto, and Pluto is the Key to this Full Moon (the Full-Moon Fez has a Chinstrap to keep it from blowing away during a haboob – namely Pluto).  Pluto’s message is that You Can Steer and Transform, but You Can’t Reverse Course.  It would be good this week to Review all of your outstanding PIAVAs, to make sure they’re all Current, and not Redundant.  Make sure you’re Asking for What You Really Want.  And make sure you’re Spending Quality Time with How You Expect to Feel when you Achieve What You Really Want.  And, make sure you’re Letting Go of What You Don’t Want.

Put Pluto at the bottom to see the Square Fez (trapezoid with red sides and blue top and bottom) and Chinstrap (blue triangle).  It’s not Square in shape, it’s a trapezoid; it’s a “Square” Fez because its sides are Squares, ie, astrologically important Angles spanning one fourth of the Zodiac (short red lines).  Fezzes are “driven” by their diagonals, in this case the Quincunxes (green lines) between Eurydike and Lachesis, and between Sappho and Sun-Ceres-Mnemosyne.  Notice that there are three Fingers of God (green wedges, meaning Pay Attention!), pointing

  • at the Sun from the base (short blue line) of Pluto-Sappho
  • at Eurydike from the base of Pluto-Lachesis
  • at Pluto from the base of Sun-Eurydike

To celebrate Sappho and Unconditional Self-Love, here’s a portrait of the first Daylily of the Northern Spring…
