The other big Configuration in the cluster near the Midpoints of the Signs is a Yin Gate in 22-25 Degrees. There’s a nice picture and description of a Yin Gate in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2014/06/13/full-moon-yin-gate-and-portal-7-5-15/ . A Yin Gate represents an Initiation into Mystery, embodied by the Central Opposition, the one with Yods to both ends of it. The Central Opposition in the current Yin Gate is Vesta-Eris in Aries to Haumea in Libra…
The Central Issue here is…
Becoming Aware of the Limitations imposed on our Life by our Unconscious Beliefs.
We normally have very good reasons for keeping Unconscious Beliefs repressed, though the reason could be as simple as we’re too busy or too lazy to rework our entire approach to Life just because a few pieces don’t fit together well. The folks at the Tea Parties carrying “Government Keep Your Hands off my Medicare” come to mind. Or the poor saps who don’t realize that “Making American Great Again” means making it Great for the billionaires.
Often though it’s about not wanting to face down our Held Emotions – the situations that we in one Body or another endured and never want to revisit. As we mentioned in the previous Heavy I post, those could well be coming up this week. We can look for more clues in the “Subsidiary Issues” ( which we elaborated in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2014/06/20/the-second-harmonic/ ), but first, getting our Limiting Beliefs pulled up by the Roots is only half of the Central Issue. The other half is a…
Rebirth of our Social Self and the way we Relate to the Outside World.
We can dig for more information about that in the Sabian Symbol, “The sight of an autumn leaf brings to a pilgrim the sudden revelation of the Mystery of Life and Death.” I don’t think Elsie used “Pilgrim” in the same way that John Wayne did. My guess is that rather than thinking “That Asshole!” about a fellow Pilgrim who doesn’t Behave the way Mom said every decent person should, we might think, “Whoa, that poor Bloke has probably Lived through the same sort of Nightmares I have.”
The Subsidiary Issues provide reinforcement and background, but not a lot of Insight. They’re
- The Threat of being Overwhelmed when our Held Emotions well up in our throat ( South Node in Pisces ) versus Allowing our Ego to be Overhauled to reorient our Life toward our Deepest Desires ( North Node in Virgo ) and
- Actions Motivated by Fear of Loss ( Sedna in Taurus ) versus Actions Motivated by a Deep Intuitive Understanding of Context ( Mars in Scorpio )
But now, this is a Yin Gate, which means that the two Subsidiary Issues are bound together with a Great Deal of Grace ( the Golden Rectangle ), so they complement and educate one another. The Trines indicate Dumb-Luck Grace between Fear and Desire (which would appear to suggest that it might be a good time to Face Down our Fear), and between Karma and Action. What sort of Action? That’s suggested by the Sextiles, in this case Action in Pursuit of our Mission, or in Pursuit of our current picture of our Mission – namely our Deepest Desires.
The Goddess is no Dummy; she encoded our Mission into our Deepest Desires, so there’s no way we could possibly forget it. Motivation from the intellect is fine, as far as it goes. But it doesn’t have nearly the Power and Persistence as Motivation from the Heart or the Gut or the Groin. We were just Programmed to Believe that those kinds of Motivations were Silly or Stupid or Uncivil. We were easy to Program because that’s what our Held Emotions told us anyway. Which is just another way of saying that’s what we’re doing this week, examining our Programming and our Vulnerability to it.
Then there are the Dos Equiis, the four Curiosities, where the Universe is advising us to eschew Analysis and substitute Wonder. These are…
- I Wonder how my Unconscious Beliefs have warped my Deepest Desires
- I Wonder how my Beliefs have constrained my Actions
- I Wonder how Fear of Loss Limits my social interactions
- I Wonder how my Held Emotions have warped my social interactions
These are Mysteries. If your mind jumps at the chance to provide simple Answers to these Musings, thank it for Contributing and change the wording. For instance, if it’s obvious to you how your Fear of Loss Limits your social interactions, change it to “I Wonder what would happen to my Social Life if my Fear of Loss was assuaged,” or something else that triggers your Imagination rather than your intellect.
At mid-month, this Configuration was not just a Yin Gate, but also a Flying Yoda, with a Kite stretched across the Golden Rectangle, topped by Haumea, and with T-Squares to each corner-to-corner Opposition in the Golden Rectangle. We talk about Flying Yodas in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2015/12/04/orcus-ii/ , but in that essay I don’t think we mentioned the embedded Yin Gate or the T-Squares.
The picture in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2015/03/30/very-busy-march-31/ shows the tailed Flying Squirrel, and actually, if we moved Ceres a few degrees forward, Mercury-Juno-Makemake-Ceres-Mercury would trace out a Golden Rectangle and enclose a Yin Gate. (That’s a hypothetical; Mercury would be likely to move forward four times faster than Ceres.) The T-Squares in that picture would be Pallas on Mercury-Opposite-Makemake, and Mars on Juno-Opposite-Pallas.
At the moment we have only a one-armed Flying Yoda, since the other arm was formed by Klotho and Sappho. Klotho-Sappho (cutting a new Fabric for Life based on Singing the Praises of Love) is a great arm for a Haumea Kite to have, and not only can we easily conceive that the full Flying Yoda has provided a continuing Blessing, but any projects born around mid-February will certainly receive that Blessing.
The persisting arm of the Flying Yoda is Ixion, another fabulous Blessing. If you didn’t notice the aroma of our Abandoned Genius in the earlier discussion of Programming and Desire, you might want to re-read it. It’s quite a “coincidence” that Ixion occupies a Ray of the Grand Trine, because while we didn’t name it that, the Ixion Discovery chart contains a full Flying Yoda, focused on Ixion itself! See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2015/03/23/ixion/ .
We’ll be able to bring our Abandoned Genius home here as well, as Grace surrounds it and connects it to our Rebirth.
