Karma-Chariklo-Pluto IV

April 18, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Karma-Chariklo-Pluto II

April 16, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Quincunx always Asks us to PIAVA

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

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

Venus Station

April 14, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Full Moon – The Rest

April 12, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Varuna-Station chart is more assymetrical…

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

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

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

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

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

 

Full Moon Configuration IVb

April 11, 2017

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

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

Full Moon Configuration IV

April 11, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Full Moon Configuration III

April 11, 2017

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

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

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

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

Same picture, different lines emphasized…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

These are…

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

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

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

What would you Wonder about these?

Full Moon Configuration II

April 10, 2017

There’s a second major Configuration in the Full Moon segment of the Full Moon chart, which we’ve emphasized with heavy lines here (same picture as last time, just different lines made bolder)…

The blue rectangle is a Golden Rectangle – sounds like a contradiction, but it’s blue because it’s all about Grace, and it’s Golden because the ratio between it’s sides is the Golden Ratio of Sacred Geometry fame.  It’s a Big Boon, motivated by the Energy in the two Oppositions (red lines) that make the “X” across its center.  

Miracles await us, in the form of Grace, when we Lovingly Embrace the Energies in both Oppositions.  It’s the sort of Grace and Miracle that we find when we plant Seeds in the spring in Sun instead of in the winter in shade, or when we point our kayak downstream instead of up – the Golden Ratio is about easy sailing with Nature rather than against Her.  So what are the Energies?

Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) Opposite Pluto (Trance-Reformation).  Well, our Unconscious Beliefs are already Trances, so Reforming them should be easy.  But it’s not.  Our Unconscious Beliefs (aka Archetypes, Karma, Programming, Cultural Norms and Taboos) are enforced by Oaths, and in the best of circumstances Breaking Oaths creates Guilt.  Usually, the imagined consequences of such Big Changes seem far more dire.

If we’re still in contact with family members, they may enforce our mutual Unconscious Beliefs with all manner of Coercion, Insult, or downright Punishment and Abuse.  Our Culture may Abandon us, which is more than an Emotional issue.  When we Live in Community or Tribe, the interdependence is such that we may actually not be able to survive without the Group.  

Even if we can, and know we can, the Memories embedded in our Cells may still make it difficult.  This is why they did, and do, Walkabouts in Australia, and Vision Quests in North America, to Clear, through Experience rather than Understanding, the Archetype of Abandonment and Create a Body Memory of Personal Safety.

The other Opposition is between asteroid Klotho and a Mars-Ceres-Sedna-Mnemosyne Stellium (which is three or more planets clustered together).  Courage is more often described as “Feeling the Fear and Doing It Anyway” than it is as “No Fear.”  Ceres is about Sustainability, Mars about Effort, Sedna about Fear.  Mnemosyne is that Cellular Memory we talked about,

So, as with the Vision Quests and Walkabouts, this is about Creating a new Cellular Memory of Knowing that we can and will Exert Sustainable Effort to Confront what we Fear.  Klotho is Responsible for “Cutting the Cloth” or weaving the tapestry of a new Timeline or Lifetime.  Well, recall that Haumea Conjoins the Full Moon – this whole adventure is about Manifesting Rebirth.

So the second Opposition is about Building a New Life founded in a new Cellular Memory of Knowing that we can and will Exert Sustainable Effort to Confront anything and everything that we Fear.  This is not Understanding or Deciding, it’s Knowing.  Knowing means that we might remember back when we did Doubt, but we certainly don’t Doubt Now, and when we do remember we just chuckle at how silly we used to be.

So our two Oppositions create slightly different versions of the same Energies.  Notice the Finger of God (green wedge) pointing at Veritas-Chaos, which symbolizes the Truth of Unlimitedness, right in the middle of the Golden Rectangle.  So in case we didn’t get the message Let Go of our Limitations from the two Oppositions, the Finger of God tells us to Pay Attention to the Liberation that awaits us.

The second Finger of God points at Klotho, reminding us that this isn’t just about Achieving Liberation, this is about Founding a whole new Identity based on Liberation from our former Limits.

Full Moon Configuration I

April 9, 2017

Okay, after a long bout of techno-obsolescence we’ve achieved visuals again, so we can go back to involving the “right brain” too.  This is how we do what we do.  Let’s temporarily take the 10 April Full Moon chart apart, starting with the 20-26 Degree region that the Full Moon itself occupies…

Focusing for the moment on just the heavier lines, we can see three intertwining Configurations…

  • The Grand Cross or the red box with the red “X” in the middle
  • The Trine Bridge or the blue lines connecting two corners of the red box
  • A Finger of God, which is the green arrowhead, pointing to the same place in the upper right as the blue lines do

The Full Moon is the diagonal red line from upper left to lower right.  The Moon at upper left Conjoins Haumea (Rebirth), and the Sun at lower right Conjoins Uranus and Eris (Honesty about our Soul Self) – more of what we’ve been enduring for the last five years, the Urge to be Forthcoming with our True Self.

Red lines signify Energy (or of course Resistence to same – the Unconscious knows Dimension but not Direction, so Opposites are Equal in its Realm).  The diagonal from lower left to upper right is the Square to the Full Moon, Pluto (Transformation) on the lower left to Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) on the upper right, which is labeled “oob” or Out of Bounds, which means Strong.

The resulting red Square containing a red “X” is called a Grand Cross, and it signifies Motivation.  It’s like we have four full-time jobs to do here (RebirthHonestyTransformationBeliefs) at the same time, so we’re constantly rushing from one to the other.  We don’t really get a lot of Choice, as this is happening in the Unconscious, so we can’t easily quit or shortchange any of the four, we just have to be an Efficient Multi-tasker.  That’s Motivation.

Basically, in order to be Reborn as our Soul Self in Human form, we have to get our Unconscious Beliefs Transformed.  Our Unconscious Beliefs consist of our Karmic Habituations, our Childhood Programming (which is often a Mirror for our Karma), and the various prejudices we Learn from our Culture.  Archetypes they’re called – Constellations of Energy that are stronger than, and usually invisible to, our Ego.  

That is, they run our Show.  Our Archetypes Enchant or En-Trance us.  We’re Zombies under their Command.  When we refer to Pluto as symbolizing Transformation, what we really mean is Formation of a New Trance.  On the Global scale, this is the nature of a Zeitgeist.

The blue lines represent Grace, the long blue line “Dumb-Luck” Grace (a “Trine”) that happens to us, and the short blue line (a “Sextile”) “Working” Grace, where Grace flows but we have to make the first move to get it started, like a matching grant.  

You can see the “Trine Bridge” across the Full Moon, with Moon-Haumea (Rebirth) Trine Veritas-Chaos (The Truth of Limitlessness), which Sextiles Sun-Uranus-Eris (“I Gotta Be Me”).  A Trine Bridge shows us the “easy way out” of the potential hassles (too much Energy) of the Grand Cross; in this case we see that we can facilitate our Rebirth by Letting Go of our Limitations.

The long green lines are “Quincunxes,” linking Planets that are five Signs apart, or five/twelfths of the way ’round the Zodiac from one another (Quin = 5, Unx=12).  They symbolize Curiosity.  Curiosity is in bed with Love, since they both eschew Judgment, and Judgment is the Opposite of Love.  We don’t mean Curiosity as in “How does that work?”  We mean Curiosity as in “Wow, look at that!  Isn’t that Amazing!” – the kind of Awe and Wonder you see in the face of any Newborn.

Obviously, True Curiosity can be Scary, as many of us crave the false Security provided by Understanding.  The shortcoming of Understanding is that it’s Conditional; even when it’s accurate and relevant, it’s vitally dependent upon the current Zeitgeist.  If we’ve succeeded in Accepting, simultaneously, as many different Perspectives as we can get our hands on, we’ll be less “thrown” when a Zeitgeist Changes, but even in the best case it will be a major Adjustment.

The short green lines are “Unxes,” linking two planets that are one Sign apart, or one twelfth of the way around the Loop.  Unxes are about Pattern-Breaking.  Unxes and Quincunxes are members of the Twelfth Harmonic.  The Fifth Harmonic is about Learning, so a Quin-Unx is about Learning to Break Patterns.  How do we do that?  We drop into Curiosity.

When two long green lines converge – as they do on Veritas-Chaos, it’s called a “Finger of God” – that is, the Universe is saying “Pay Attention to this!” and “Don’t try to Understand it – It Is What It Is.”  and “Accept it as an Assumption, not as a Logical Conclusion.”  Veritas-Chaos is about the Truth of Limitlessness, so this is a request by the Universe that we Loosen up on our Belief that we Understand it All.

So this segment of the New Moon chart tells us that…

  • In order to be Reborn as our Soul Self in Human form, we have to get our Unconscious Beliefs Transformed
  • We can facilitate our Rebirth by Letting Go of our Limitations
  • The Universe has requested that we Loosen up on our Belief that we Understand it All

Pretty straightforward, eh?

Self-Love and Genius

March 17, 2017

As usual, Michael Roads is right in tune with the “Stars,” writing in his “365 steps to a happier more conscious life” email (http://int.michaelroads.org/) as if for the simultaneous Stations (Strengthenings) of Ixion (Forbidden Genius) and Sappho (Self-Love)…

“There is no higher-Self and lower-self; there is only Self

“As I have often written, Self is who you are.  When I refer to self, this is the aspect that relates to separation and identity.  Some people call this the ego-self.  The problem with this is that these people often indulge in attacking their ego, claiming that the ego must die before Self can be realised.  This is nonsense.

“It is Love that brings freedom from the illusion, and Love does not attack any aspect of who you are to achieve this.  Love and accept yourself for who you are, the way you are, right now.  Treat identity-self lovingly, gently, and with great care.  Always, always, always . . . choose Love!”

Ixion was the psychopath of the Greek Pantheon, creating all manner of cultural havoc until Zeus cornered him.  Rather than punish Ixion though, Zeus, liking Libertarian males as the Founder and Archetype of Patriarchy, gave Ixion a second chance.  With that second chance, Ixion set out to seduce Zeus’s wife Hera.  That Zeus didn’t tolerate, so Zeus bound Ixion to the Sun, to forever spin across the Sky in Fire.

Of course the behavior Zeus couldn’t tolerate in others, was exactly the behavior that Zeus perpetrated repeatedly on other women.  Some authors attribute upwards of 150 children to Zeus in the various versions of Greek Iconography.  This is a good example of the “Funhouse Mirror” through which we see our selves.  If it occurred to Zeus that Ixion was simply Mirroring Zeus’s own behavior, then Zeus becomes a bit of a tyrant, reserving those sorts of Adventures only for himself.

More likely, Zeus failed to recognize the Mirroring, as we are wont to do when we Judge others for the behaviors or attitudes that we are unable to Witness in our self because it would conflict with our Limiting Beliefs, or trigger the Held Emotions that we’re unwilling to tolerate.  An illustration of how our Judgments, when exposed to the Light, are doorways into our Stuck places.  Hence the punishment of being strapped to the Sun, to the Light, and hence the burning Pain of Ego Death from Spiritual Fire.

Here is some excellent Perspective on one of the greatest tricks of the Patriarchy and Power-Over in general, a behavior which for some weird reason people are naming “Gaslighting.”  In my day it would simply have been called a Mindfuck, but that may not be polite enough for the DSM…

A picture is worth a thousand words, and Gaslighting is illustrated here…

In the process of Zeus’s punishment of Ixion, Ixion grandfathered the Centaurs, Equine-Huper hybrids – Zeus fashioned a Cloud in the image of Hera, and the father of the Centaurs was the result of Ixion’s tryst with the Cloud.  We’ll let your own imagination play with any Atlantean metaphors about the Cloud that our Computers mate with today.  Of course our most famous Centaur is Chiron, master of Pain and Miracle, and metaphor for Separation.

An interesting and very useful Perspective on Chiron, from…

https://shiftingthroughlove.wordpress.com/2017/03/16/chapter-12-the-build-up/

“…a dream message from a guide who called himself The Hierophant.  His message was to ‘follow the 8 winds’ and he also said, ‘Within a moment you will be changed.’  My research indicated that the Hierophant was a typical part of the tarot deck often also known as the High Priest.  Further, he can also be known as Chiron, the wounded healer.  Further research showed the 8 winds as a reminder to avoid attachment to those things which are very desirous while also not avoiding things that are very painful.”

The Hierophant stands for the Fifth Harmonic – Learning and Teaching, while the Eighth Harmonic is about “alignment and balance” and “piercing the webbed veils of illusion, delusion, and deception” (Angie Arrien, Tarot Handbook, p.55).  The part about “the 8 winds as a reminder to avoid attachment to those things which are very desirous while also not avoiding things that are very painful,” in addition to being the core of Liberation from Archetypes, is for me an intriguing addition to the concept of Rebalancing.  

And “Within a moment you will be changed” is the hallmark of Chiron, as the Leap from Despair to Miracles that results from the successful Shift to a New Perspective that, for instance, Poor-Sweethearting can accomplish.  

It also sheds further Light on the Mjolnir or Thor’s Hammer (a third planet at the Far Midpoint of a Square) as Lightning or Epiphany, since the Mjolnir is a pair of Trioctiles, or the combination of the Third (Love with Wisdom) and Eighth Harmonics.  A Waning Trioctile is after all a Quinoctile, combining the Fifth and Eighth rhythms.
