Saturn-Neptune-Orcus Eclipse II

September 2, 2016

(1) So far we’ve talked about 

But a fourth prominent Complex is probably the most important of them all.

(2) It starts with a strong obligation to Embrace the parts of our Self that for whatever reason we’ve suppressed or kept underground.

(3) Which is part of the major Mandatory Molting we’ve been doing every September for the last several years.  This involves taking on Forms which we don’t usually include in our Egoic repertoire.

(4) Which will introduce us to our Unlimited Potential – our “Greatest Fear” as Marianne Williamson puts it.  So we need to be mindful of “Upper Limits” – places we’ve always wanted to go, but which Feel so Strange when we get there that, Fearing it may be the Season of the Witch, we want to rush back to the unsatisfying Known.

(5) We also find ourselves with our Self-Love looking in the Mirror and seeing our Despair and Discouragement – and vice versa.  That can be a bit shocking, but as long as we remember to Embrace our Discouragement (“You poor Sweetheart, …), we’re Golden.

(6) All of this is mediated and integrated by the Rebirth of our True Self, which Rebirth we’ve been perfecting for several years now.

(7) Which requires that we invite “the Universe” to help us with two major Paradoxes, via of course PIAVA:

  • “I Wonder how my Rebirth will Heal my Discouragement about ever Acting Out my True Self”
  • “Ganeshi, please Remove All Obstacles to my Unwavering Love for my True Self”

Or something like that.

(8) The Eclipse, the Big Learning, and this fourth Complex are all tied together in such a way to tell us that The Most Important Thing is Self-Love and Self-Empathy.  We can expect a number of Epiphanies about that, and a number of Adjustments and Rebalancings in our Lives to accommodate it.  “There exist Faith, Hope, and Love, but the greatest of these is Love.”

(1) The second Grand Cross we mentioned, which is also intertwined with a Golden Rectangle.

(2) Dwarf planet Ixion (our Abandoned Genius) is Stationary at the Eclipse, turning Direct on 4 September, and it Conjoins a Stationary Pholus (Taking Full Responsibility), which turns Direct on 8 September, and the asteroid Lachesis (Measuring the Length of Life of an Ego) as well.

(3) The Centaur Storms as we’ve called them, when three Centaurs and two dwarf planets all go Stationary at about the same time near the same location, which happens to be the Galactic Center (Command Central).  In addition to Ixion and Pholus, nearby dwarf planet Quaoar (the Laws of Survival) turns Direct on 9 September, and Centaurs Chariklo (Charm and Beauty) and Hylonome (the Grief of Separating from an Archetype) both turn Direct on 10 September.  Centaurs are half Huper and half Horse.

(4) Ixion-Pholus-Lachesis Opposes dwarf planet Chaos (not Disorder but Unlimited Potential).

(5) The other Opposition in this second Grand Cross, in addition to Ixion-et al Opposite Chaos, is Sappho (Self-Love) Opposite Chiron (Despair and Miracles, mediated by Self-Empathy).

(6) A Golden Rectangle is formed when two Oppositions are a Trine apart, which Manifests a Golden Ratio of Sacred Geometry fame between the long and short sides of the Rectangle.  The Opposition between Ixion-et al and Chaos forms a Golden Rectangle with the Opposition between Uranus-Eris (the Soul’s Truth) and Haumea (Rebirth).

(7) The Golden Rectangle makes two Opposing Trine Bridges across the Ixion-Chaos axis of the Grand Cross.  And its outside corners (Uranus-Eris and Haumea) make two Opposing Quincunx Bridges across the other Grand Cross axis, Sappho-Chiron.

(8) The Eclipse Grand Cross is at 8-11 Degrees of the Mutable Signs, while this second Grand Cross is at 23-25 Degrees of the same Mutable Signs.  Mutations are in order, in other words.  And, the two Grand Crosses are 15 Degrees apart, which introduces Octiles and Trioctiles between the corners of one and the Bridges of the other.

The overlighting Configuration formed by these Eighth Harmonics is a Crossbow pointing at Sappho from Chiron.  A Crossbow is formed when two Shoulder Planets are each Octile from a Focal Corner of a Grand Cross.  This creates three Mjolnirs, one each to the two Shoulder Planets (here, Karma and Juno-Lilith), and the third to the Grand Cross planet Opposite to the Focal Corner (Chiron).  The half-Grand-Octile surrounding the Shoulders forms the bow, the Focal-Corner planet the arrowhead, and the Grand Cross axes the bow and the arrow.

So while Epiphanies around Discouragement (Chiron), Pattern-Breaking (Karma), and PIAVA (Juno-Lilith) are prominent, the point of it all is,  quite sharply, Self-Love (Sappho).

Meanwhile, the corner shared by the Eclipse Grand Cross and the five-pointed Grand Quintile Star, is Focus on The Most Important Thing (Saturn).

Cancel, Neutralize, Upgrade

June 21, 2016
  • Cancel the Negative thought
  • Neutralize the Energy Created by it
  • Upgrade the thinker  

We aren’t through yet with the Solstice-Full-Moon action, so I’ve been trying to put off writing about next week.  Then it finally dawned on me – after several images of Trauma intruded – that we’re in the middle of next week’s Energy already.  

(1)  That Energy’s name is Fear.  

It’s part of the work we’ve been doing getting Honest with ourself, and it’s a foundation for our Rebirth.

Here’s a good description of it…

https://boozilla.wordpress.com/2016/06/16/rolling-in-the-deep/

And as usual, Dr. Kim is tuned right in.  Here are two of her recent short videos on the subject, similar but different, and both very worthwhile, short maps of exactly what we recommend…

http://drkimderamo.com/are-you-living-in-fear/

http://drkimderamo.com/living-beyond-your-fear/

If what you Experience turns out to be Anger instead, drill down beneath it.  Anger is a perfectly valid Response to Fear, as Anger is just a Self-Protection.  But underneath your Anger is Fear.  Find it.

(2)  Fear is literally a Siren Song for us; we can’t not Pay Attention to it.  In this case there is a very strong Call to Action involved, and the appropriate Action is to look at what it is about ourself that we’re afraid to admit.  Afraid to admit to others, yes, but especially what we’re afraid to admit to ourself.

This is not about Self-Criticism.  We aren’t talking about those nagging voices telling you what’s wrong with you.  We need to dig beneath those.  We can start by Asking “Whose voice is that, anyway?” – that’ll remind us that the Self-Criticism isn’t really Self at all.  Ask “What is it that would really Excite me?”  Excitement is Fear plus Breathing.  The question of the month is “Why haven’t I been doing those Exciting things all along?”

You can make a list of those “reasons,” and then convert each of the Yes-Buts to Yes-Ands.  Yes-But I would make a fool of myself.  Yes-And, How would that Feel in my Body?  Yes-And, I’ll have to Learn to Love that Feeling too, won’t I.  Yes-And, I can do that, can’t I; I’ve done worse things.  Yes-And, if I had the Choice, which would I Choose?  To have Excitement in my Life, or to never Feel Embarrassed?  Yes-And, it might be Exciting to be, Um, Bareassed occasionally, eh?

This is all about Embracing our own Truth and recognizing how much doing that unlocks Unlimited Potential.

If Traumatic Memories or Visions arise in the next several weeks, go out of your way to Embrace yourself – “You poor Sweetheart, you must have Felt horrible when that happened.  Remember that Trauma can be Acute (sudden and Shocking) or Chronic (slow, easily dismissed as no Biggie, but repeated).

(3)  There is much Grace available to us here; we only need to remember to find Gratitude and Embrace it, even – especially – in the midst of Pain and Despair.

(4)  Be mindful that what you Experience in the next few weeks may not be Personal.  Don’t waste any Energy on “That couldn’t have happened.”  It doesn’t matter.  What matters is that you accept what you’re Feeling as if the Memories were Truly yours, and Embrace your Emotions in their wake.  The Planet is moving through big Transitions, and you may just be Chosen to help Heal that dark Energy.  We’re All One, what happens to Any of us happens to All of us.  The important thing is the Healing.

The Memories could be those of another Lifetime, of a neighbor, of a character in a movie or newsfeed, or of a Soul Sibling you hardly if at all know in the current Incarnation.  The Memories could be a Story that your Psyche made up to symbolize other, more subtle or profound Fears.  What’s Important is to Embrace the Feelings that arise, and the more repulsive the Feelings, the more Important it is to Embrace them.  Whether or not the Memories are True and Truly yours, in this moment the Feelings are True and Truly yours.

There are no failures here; Embracing ten percent of them is far better than Resisting a hundred percent of them.  And you can Trust that whatever you don’t get Embraced this time around, you’ll get to revisit later.  Good reason to make a little extra Effort now.  But Safety First; take it one step at a time so you don’t bite off more than you can chew, or try to do in public what will be a lot more comfortable in private.  Without Safety, we can easily tread backwards.

(5)  Like your Mission, the exact nature of your Abandoned Genius may be hidden from you.  Even if you spend a good part of your day daydreaming about it, the Story may be a Metaphor – and probably is.  You hear stories about folks stumbling into what seems to be their Right Livelihood or True Calling, and it may be more Important to Make Yourself Available for your Genius to find you, than to Seek it out Actively.

But it doesn’t matter.  You can PIAVA to “Lovingly and Gently take meaningful steps toward your Abandoned Genius” without having to know what you’re approaching, or what’s approaching you.  It’s likely to be related to those Feelings you’ve been Resisting all your Life, the ones you’re now Embracing with all your Heart because you know the Survival of yourself, your Loved Ones, and the Planet depends upon it.

The Astrology

(1)  The dwarf planet Sedna (Actions Taken out of Fear) Initiates the asteroids Veritas (Latin for Truth) on 27 June, and Aletheia (Greek for Truth) on 8 July, both at 26 Taurus (“A Spanish gallant serenades his lover“).

The reason we put such emphasis on the Initiations, is that they signify important Changes in the Energy, in the Milieu, in the temperature of our bathwater.

Asteroid cycles are usually about four years, so for the next four years our Disowned Fear will be serenading us.  It would be an excellent time to start crooning back to it, so we can convert it to Excitement.

(2)  Sedna-Veritas-Aletheia is the Power Source in one of those Crossbow-Slingshot-Boomerang Yod-Yod Kite Configurations.

The Yod or Finger of God is a third planet at the Far Midpoint between two planets that are Sextile to one another.  The focus is the third planet.  Now add a fourth planet at the Near Midpoint of the first two (Opposite the third planet), and you have one of these Slingshots.  The focus remains the third planet, while the fourth planet becomes the projectile aimed at the bulls-eye, powered by the tension between the first two planets.

Here the third planet (focus or target) is a Stationary Mars (Action).  Mars goes Direct at 24 Scorpio on 29 June.  That’s the tail end of the Leo Duad of Scorpio, so it’s about diving deep (Scorpio) into our Ego Identity (Leo).

The first two planets, in the Sextile-bowstring, are the Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne Stellium (Making our Truth Permanent), and Mercury-Chaos (Glimpsing our Unlimited Potential).  Mnemosyne adds the possibility that we can Recover Memories of the landmark events which caused us to Mask ourself in this Lifetime.

  • Mnemosyne Opposes Haumes on 25 June
  • Eris Initiates Mnemosyne on 2 July at 24 Aries (Abundance)
  • Uranus Initiates Mnemosyne on 5 July in 25 Aries (Awareness of New Dimensions)
  • Mnemosyne Opposes Nemesis on 12 July

(3)  Sedna-Verititas-Aletheia is also the head of a Kite, mounted on a Grand Trine between Mars, Chiron (Despair and Miracles), and Varuna (the Life Force).

(4)  Chiron, meanwhile, is also at the head of a T-Square across the Opposition between Mercury-Chaos and the Ixion-Pholus-Lachesis-Quaoar Stellium (Taking Full Responsibility for Embracing our Abandoned Genius is not only Timely, but also Essential for Survival – ours and the Planet’s).

The Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne Stellium Trine-Bridges the T-Square.

(5)  Which leads us to a second Slingshot, this one aimed at the Ixion-Pholus-Lachesis-Quaoar Stellium, powered by Mercury-Chaos, with the Sextile between Varuna and Sedna-Verititas-Aletheia as the bowstring.

All these Configurations take place between 22 and 29 Degrees, and will trigger your natal planets in those Degrees.  That’s a wide Orb for Transits, but the planets themselves stretch the Sensitivity.  For instance,

  • Chaos is a little over two Degrees from Opposing Ixion
  • Ixion is a little over one Degree from Opposition to Mercury
  • Mercury is one Degree from Opposing Pholus
  • Pholus is only a few arcminutes past Lachesis
  • Lachesis is one Degrees short of the Galactic Center
  • Quaoar is one and a half Degrees past the Galactic Center

Altogether spanning 22-29 Degrees of Gemini-Sagittarius.  These folks are all Retrograde, so there are no Initiations or Can-Openers among them at this time.

And while the Orb may be wide for Transits, it’s not wide at all for a birth chart, and there’s no question that this is our Rebirth, the Birth of our True Self.  

Which means that all this will apply for the Life of our Reborn Self, and will apply to any Projects we begin now, including the Project of Unconditionally Loving ALL of our Emotions, and of Embracing our Abandoned Genius.

Maker Moon

October 25, 2015

Tuesday’s Full Moon is unusual.  A Full Moon is a comment on the Zeitgeist of the following several weeks.  There’s little Grace, good Curiosity, and big Insights involved in this one.  Your doorway into Epiphany is your Instincts – Trust them.  Your password is Discouragement.  Pay close (and Loving) Attention to any Discouragement you encounter…  

“You poor Sweetheart, you think that’s impossible, don’t you.  I Wonder what it would take to make it possible.  What if it was such a subtle difference that we’d hardly notice the change”

would be a good icebreaker.

The Configuration looks so much like a Crossbow that I think we’ll call it that.

A Crossbow Configuration is a Finger of God pointing at the focus of a Mjolnir Kite.  I’d draw it out for you, but I’m technologically challenged at the moment, so I’ll have to describe it.

Mjolnir Kite is formed when two planets make opposing Trioctile Bridges across an Opposition.  Said another way, a third planet at the far Midpoint of two planets that are Square forms a Mjolnir (Hammer of Thor in the vernacular), pointing at the third planet.  So the third planet is Trioctile to each end of the Square.  Mjolnir means Lightning, or Epiphany.  Add a fourth planet Opposite the third planet (at the near Midpoint of the two Square planets), and you have a Mjolnir Kite, shifting the focus to the fourth planet (the “top” of the kite).

Now, add two more planets, one Sign away from the third planet, on either side.  Since these will both be Quincunx to the fourth planet, they’ll form a Finger of God (meaning Pay Attention!) focused on the fourth planet.  No pressure, but the combination sure lights up the fourth planet!

The Full Moon is at the apex of the Finger of God and the Mjolnir Kite, hence the emphasis on Instinct.

We consider the Moon to have three levels of operation.  First it is you variable Emotions – the way you react with anger some times and don’t care other times, when confronted with the same phenomenon.  The second level is Instinct.  Even though the stimuli are superficially similar, you react with anger when behind the stimulus is an invisible threat to your Safety, and you don’t care when there is no threat.  I always use the example of someone cutting you off in traffic, because we know it so well; in the one case they’re cutting you off because they’re angry (and possibly armed), and in the other case because they’re legitimately in a hurry.  The third level is that Lunar Energy is the glue that keeps matter from flying apart into MC-squared Energy.

But that’s not why we refer to this Full Moon as a “Maker” Moon; that’s because, other than the Mjolnir Kite, the only other Angles formed by this Full Moon are Makemake and Saturn Quintile Bridges (together creating the Finger of God).

Makemake was the God who saved the Easter Islanders from starvation after their environment was degraded, teaching them tricks like planting Seeds in the lee of rocks, where Water would condense out of the fog.  Makemake’s “Discovery” chart reeks of Manifestation.  While the name is a “coincidence,” it came into Huper Awareness at about the same time as the Maker Movement began.  If you aren’t familiar with the Maker Movement, Bing the phrase plus the name of your town, or the nearest college town.  Everywhere in the US now there are shops set up, for sharing, usually for a small membership fee, that include 3-D printers, milling machines, other fabrication tools, and folks who know how to use them and are willing to share their knowledge, so you can combine $20 computer controllers with circuitry and machinery to Manifest your inventions into hard copy.

The Quintile Bridge adds the Wondering, as the nature of a Quintile is constant Surprise, as long as we don’t freeze the Action by pretending that our Question needs an Answer.

The other two planets in the Mjolnir are Chiron and dwarf planet Chaos.  

Chiron symbolizes Despair/Discouragement (the “Unhealable Healer”) changing to Miracles when Empathy (Neutrality and Presence) is applied to the Despair (“You poor Sweetheart, you’re really bummed, aren’t you.” – it’s not a question).  How?  By Empathizing with your own Discouragement, you are no longer Identified with Discouragement, you’re now Identified with Empathy.  This is the equivalent of Changing the Subject in PIAVA – it opens up space for new information to innoculate your “stuck” space, allowing what would have been seen from the Perspective of Discouragement as Miracles.  

Rather than Disorder, dwarf planet Chaos represents Unlimited Opportunity.  Chaos is what existed before the Greek Gods came into existence.  Of course they considered themselves, like all Gods, to be the First and Only Gods.  But actually, prior to the Greek Gods there were plenty of other Gods, including many apparently-Miraculous Pyramid-Makers, most of whom were Maternally oriented.  So if Unlimited Opportunity (the infinitely deep Zero Point Field) is a bit scary for you, you can think of Chaos as the constantly shifting evolutionary realm of Mother Nature.  I know, She frightens a lot of people, with her Snakes for hair and all.  In my neighborhood, where all the kids are on Ritalin, they allow only plastic shrubbery, so She doesn’t get unruly.  If She scares you a bit, remember that you are an integral part of Nature, and since according to General Relativity the Universe has no center except for Everywhere, you are the Center of your Universe.  You can Manifest whatever you Want.  If you Believe you can.  Go easy.  Expand your Want Universe by two or three percent at a time; double or nothing will often leave you with nothing.

So you can see, this is a pretty big deal.  That leaves Saturn, the other corner of the Finger of God.  Saturn means The Most Important Thing.  

So here at the Full Moon the basic message is that The Most Important Thing is Owning more of your Power as the Master Co-Creator that you actually are.  As Marianne says…

“It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.  Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.  We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?  Actually, who are you not to be?  You are a child of God.  Your playing small does not serve the world.  There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.  We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.  It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.  And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.  As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”  —Marianne Williamson, Return to Love

One other indication – the Venus-Mars Conjunction Opposes Chiron and completes a Chaos T-Square.  The Conjunction is not an Initiation; the Initiation occurred last February at 2 Aries, “What a joke, those Hupers.”  This is the Confidence-Builder phase of the triple Conjunction.

In order to avoid Overwhelm by the vastness of the Possibilities, we need to use All of our Skills.  It’s not enough to PIAVA and hope for the best, and it’s not enough to Plan and Execute.  We need to do both.  We PIAVA what we Want, Change the Subject, Pay Attention, and then Respond to the information we receive, either with a mores new PIAVA that accounts for the new information, or an Action based on the new information that moves us toward our Wants.  It won’t always work that way, but alternating PIAVA and Action will probably produce the best results here.  It’s a good opportunity to compare the scope of your PIAVAs and Actions.  If you’re PIAVAing the World but Acting only in your own back yard, or PIAVAing a small goal while Planning and Executing Globally, you may want to consider Rebalancing them.  If you’re new to PIAVA, see the “PIAVA” entry in the “Categories” list to the right.

You may not have noticed, but at least in the US, Big Ag is poisoning us for profit.  Many folks saying that we’re winning the struggle against them.  Here’s a surprise vote in that direction…
