Blessing Full Moon Eclipse

February 8, 2017

Two planets are “Sextile” to one another when they’re within a few Degrees of being two Signs apart, or one sixth of the way ’round the Zodiac from one another.  The Angle from one planet to another determines how their Energies are Relating to one another.  One sixth of the way ’round the Loop is a 60-Degree Angle, and it’s a very positive Angle.  

The Sixth Harmonic (ie, one sixth of the Circle) is about Partnership, Collaboration with Others, and particularly with a Special Other.  Well-functioning Partnership makes Life a lot Easier – with two cats in the yard and all.

The Trine (Third Harmonic, 120 Degrees or four Signs apart, a third of the Loop) represents “Dumb-Luck” Grace – things flow so Effortlessly that we don’t even know that there could be Resistance.  Personalizing a Trine – thinking the Ease is a result of our own special heroism – creates insufferable Arrogance.  

The Sextile is more subtle.  It only Opens the door to Grace after we’ve taken the “first step.”  If we don’t take the first step, nothing happens.  Kind of the way Partnership works – one of us has to take the first step.  There’s generally no Arrogance involved, more like Surprise and Gratitude instead.

We use the term “Grand” when any set of Angles fills the Circle – three Trines back-to-back is called a “Grand Trine,” six Sextiles end-to-end a “Grand Sextile.”  Generally, the “Grand” Configurations are Blessings.  Even the Grand Cross, which is four Squares (each 90 Degrees, one fourth of the Loop), is a Benefic, even though it’s made up of four Angles which by themselves would be Challenging.  It’s Benefic because, like the other “Grands,” it’s Balanced.

Many folks consider the Grand Sextile – a six-pointed Star – to be the greatest Configuration of all.  A Grand Sextile contains two Grand Trines, so there’s plenty of Dumb-Luck Grace.  But there’s also all that Collaboration flowing from six Sextiles all working together, once we set it all in motion.

The long-lived Ixion Golden Rectangle we’ve been touting for months is made of two Trines and two Sextiles, so while it doesn’t include a Grand Trine, it does fill the Circle and is relatively Balanced, so it’s also fairly “Grand,” it’s a very beneficial Configuration.  Well, the 10 February (4:30 pm PST) Full Moon Eclipse, at 23 Leo-Aquarius, turns that Golden Rectangle into a Grand Sextile.  Break out the Champagne!  It’s short-lived, since it’s the fast-moving Moon that forms the Configuration, but we get a solid half-day out of it, from around 11am till 11pm PST on 10 February.

Grand Sextiles occur in either the Dynamic Signs or the Magnetic Signs, this one in the Dynamics.  So Action is implied as our strategy most likely to be successful.  That means Brave and Brash.  The six points on the Star represent the six Energies that will Dance hand in hand on 10 February…

  • Trusting Intuition, Trusting Self (Moon in Leo)
  • Big Rebirth – take the Risk to meet new People and Be a new Person (Jupiter-Haumea in Libra)
  • Forbidden Creativity – take the Risk to loose the chains and really Be Your Scariest Self (Saturn-Ixion in Sagittarius)
  • Party it Up and Celebrate Community (Sun in Aquarius)
  • Be Unabashedly Yourself, no holding back or thinking about Consequences (Uranus-Eris in Aries)
  • Whenever you Feel a Should coming on, Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade it before it can get past the Sh-h- (Atropos-Chaos in Gemini)

Any Full Moon Eclipse is Stronger than the average Full Moon.  This one is a “Penumbral” Eclipse, which means you have to look very closely to notice the slight darkening of one side of the Moon.  While a Full Moon does its work by Illuminating what was hidden, an Eclipse does its work by making absent what was there all along but not differentiated.  If all you see is a Forest, then they log half the Trees, suddenly you see, through their absence, that there were Trees there too, not just a Forest.

So a Penumbral Eclipse does double duty.  The Full Moon is almost as bright as usual, illuminating what we need to see to make our next jump in Growth of Consciousness.  It’s also Eclipsed – we may have to squint to notice, but the Eclipse Energy is there – so what’s been hiding in plain sight suddenly becomes obvious by its absence – and that is our next jump in Consciousness.  

We don’t Grow in Consciousness through Discovery; we Grow through Differentiation, through Noticing what we hadn’t Noticed before.  That’s what Meditation is all about.  You might Notice that you’ve been Shoulding on yourself without Realizing it till now, for instance.  Or you may find that your Limits are Illuminated in such a way that you Realize that they’re your Limiting Beliefs, not the “Laws of Nature” you thought they were.

There’s a lot more to this Full Moon and Eclipse; we’ll take that up in the next couple of posts.

Consciousness and Matter 1

December 4, 2016

This is an excellent, if not completely explicit, beginning toward explaining the Connection between Lunar Energy/Emotion and Matter, as well as the waves of Emotional turmoil many of us are experiencing…

http://suzanneliephd.blogspot.com/2016/12/identifying-first-cause-by-arcturians.html

It’s long, but well worth finishing.  Thanks to https://bluedragonjournal.com/ for the tip.

The dwarf planet Haumea – Rebirth – is sitting between us and Arcturus, focusing Arcturian Energy to our Planet.

Haumea is one corner of the Ixion Golden Rectangle and Sedna Yin Gate that we’ve been discussing, as well as one corner of the Eurydike Grand Sextile, all of which are ongoing.  Haumea is also only a few Degrees south of Arcturus in Declination.

We refer to the Golden Rectangle as the “Ixion Golden Rectangle” because the Recovery of our Abandoned Genius (Ixion) is for most of us the most Challenging element in the Golden Rectangle.  It’s four corners are… 

  • Ixion-Pholus: Being Fully Responsible to our Abandoned Genius (or, as Marianne Williamson so poetically expresses it, our Brilliance, Gorgeousness, Talent, and Fabulosity)
  • Dwarf planet Chaos: Unlimited Potential
  • Haumea: Rebirth
  • Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne: Egoic Fidelity to our Soul Self, Being Open to the Revelation of Denial, and Making this Sustainable, via the Loving Embrace of Challenging Memories

We refer to the Yin Gate as the “Sedna Yin Gate” because Conscious and Loving Response to Terror (Sedna) is the most Challenging element in the Yin Gate.  A Yin Gate above all asks us to recognize that Contradiction exists only in the mind; in Reality there is Paradox – Coexistence on levels that the mind does not understand, but not Contradiction.  In addition to the Golden Rectangle, the Yin Gate‘s Spine is comprised of…

  • Lilith: Self-Sovereignty
  • Sedna: Conscious and Loving Response to Fear

Lilith is particularly associated with Female Self-Sovereignty, highlighting the Challenges presented by Misogynist politics.  As important, Lilith is associated with Sovereignty for the Anima or Inner Female of the second gender.

Sedna is also the focus of a Quintile Yod from Jupiter and Mercury, meaning that it is Very Important that we Learn how to Consciously Expand into being Lovingly Aware of what most Frightens us.  Start by Breathing.

We refer to the Grand Sextile as the “Eurydike Grand Sextile” because when we use established astrological planets we only get five of the six corners.  The sixth corner would be the Vacancy, which becomes the Strongest corner of the Grand Sextile, and signifies the Energy which we must provide Consciously in order to trigger the Ease and Grace implied by a Grand Sextile.

The esoteric asteroid Eurydike (Trust) fills the Grand Sextile Vacancy, so it is Trust that will Liberate Grace for us here.  In addition to the Golden Rectangle and Eurydike, the sixth corner of the Grand Sextile is Pallas (Boundaries).

And finally, Sedna is also one corner of the Grand Cross, with Lilith, Eurydike, and Pallas.  A Grand Cross shows the necessity to Multitask in order to attend to all of the Energy we’re encountering, in this case the necessity to split our Attention between

  • Responding Consciously to Fear,
  • Asserting our Self-Sovereignty,
  • Setting Effective Boundaries, and
  • Trusting our Heart’s Truth

without diminishing our Attention to any of the four.

For dessert, we also have in today’s Quitaly chart two Fingers of God (Pay Attention!) intertwined with each other and with a Major Tricolor (Curiosity), as follows…

  • A Yod to Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) from Mercury-Hylonome (Conscious Escape from Archetypes) and OR10-Nessus (Irruption of Memories of Abuse) and a Yod to OR10-Nessus from Vesta and Makemake-Hopi (Manifesting in the context of Respect for All Things): In the guise of unpleasant or Traumatic Memories, we are being Liberated from Limiting Beliefs; it behooves us to stay Conscious and Loving with our Libereation this rather than indulging our Victim – that was then, this is Now.  Recognize the Connection between Manifesting in the context of Respect for All Things and the download from the Arcturians.
  • A Square (Mastery through Challenge) from Vesta to Sappho-Klotho (Designing a new Ego wrapped around Self-Love) is Quincunx (Curiosity) to OR10-Nessus, which is in turn Trine (Grace) to Sappho-Klotho: We invoke our own Passion to lend Power to our Rebirth into Self-Love by Embracing Perpetual Curiosity – AND AVOIDING CONCLUSIONS – about the Relationship between Traumatic Experience/Memory and Limiting Beliefs.  Recognize the Connection between Passion-Emotion-Power and Suzanne’s comments in the Arcturian message above: 
“What you will need to let go is the causation of any actions and behaviors that cannot resonate to the fifth dimension.  Then, in order to release that causation, you will need to identify those thoughts, emotions, and actions that prevent you from resonating to the fifth dimension. 
 
“You will begin by identifying “First Cause.”  We define First Cause as that which creates the first thoughts and emotions that bond together to create the “First Concept.”  To change a behavior, you must start with the conception of that which caused that behavior. 
 
“The conception is what thoughts and what emotional reactions created, accompanied, and/or arose from that conceptual thought.  We are not using the word “concept” as just an idea.  We also use it conceptually, as in the ability to conceive.
 
“Once your thoughts and emotions join to conceive a “concept,” they begin to bond and intertwine in a multidimensional manner.  The lowest frequencies of the conceptual bond hold fear and doubt.  Conversely, the highest frequenciesof the conceptual bond hold love and light.”
 
This isn’t everyday trivia, it’s Shakespearean Drama.  Remember that our Bottom Line here is What we’re Learning.  
 
We don’t have any results around Quitaly yet, but the USArmy Corps of Engineers a few moments ago agreed to reroute the Dakota Access Pipeline.  Even if that is eventually overturned, it is a welcome delay from the potential start of another Civil War.

Kundalini Rising II

March 6, 2016

The Elves of Lily Hill Farm don’t mince words (Penny Kelly, p.191)…

“Humans are at the top of nature’s heap.  Ye humans need everything that’s in the heap under ye to support yer form of life.  But nothing in the heap needs that human at the top.  Ye humans are the most expendable of all – yet ye all think yer indispensable!  

“Picture the security of the human race right now as one lonely person riding a unicycle across a tightrope that is tied between two poles anchored in soup bowls floating on an ocean,  Yer position is tenuous – at best.”

But there be Hope (Genia Haddon, Body Metaphors, pp.108-9)…

“Neither participational consciousness [the original Matriarchy] nor differentiating objectivity [the Patriarchy] characterizes this third model.  It [the Age of the Yang Feminine – the Age of Lilith] encourages a ‘both-and’ way of looking at things.  Although uncommon in the Patriarchal Age, this sort of consciousness is sometimes experiened in mystical states or with the aid of psychedelic drugs.  

“A pair of opposites that are mutually exclusive as seen by patriarchal, differentiating consciousness are no longer contradictory when comprehended by mentation that simultaneously holds awareness of various levels or orders of wholes.  In other words, this is a style of consciousness that is attentive to varying contexts and can shift from one to another, or even hold several in awareness simultaneously [Castaneda’s ‘Cognitive Dissonance’].

“In such a system, we should expect to experience life as multivalent rather than focused, contextually transformative rather than goal oriented.  Within the gestative system [Matriarchy], movement was contained and cyclic.  The metaphor for progress was natural, vegetative proliferation and succession of seasons.  Phases succeeded one another in a repeating pattern, like a circle, or like the snake biting its tail.  

“In the phallic system, movement is goal oriented and linear, like a arrow.  Progress is pictured as ascent achieved through competition and mastery.  In the exertive [Yang Feminine] system, movement is to be rooted in context and emerging out of it, like a spiral or helix … [in which] interleaved ascending and descending coils suggest the contexting of ‘opposites’ within a larger whole that retains their distinctions, yet transcends their opposition [the ‘Coin’].”

“In an Age reflecting the nature of the exertive womb [Yang Feminine] rather than the phallus, property ownership and exploitation would simply cease to be meaningful concepts, based as they are on patriarchal principles of separating out and power over.  It is beyond my capacity to picture concretely such a world based on exertive-world principles of egalitarian networks, contextual transformation, and holistic transcendence.  

“To appreciate how alien exertive-womb principles still are, try to imagine what sort of pattern would replace ‘ownership’ of animal pets by ‘masters’ in an age in which the dominant motif is no longer hierarchical. … These are the watchwords: context, egalitarian, transformation, multiple wholes, self-transcendence, non-uniform multiplicity, both-and simultaneity without loss of distinctions, network.”

Here’s an example of Both/And/And-that-too, from Robert Moss’s Dreaming True pp290-1…

“The philosopher of Science Thomas Kuhn observed that we get a paradigm shift when the accumulation of ‘anomalies’ forces the abandonment of old scientific paradigms and the adoption of new ones.  Dream journalists can contribute mightily to the emergence and understanding of new paradigms in science” by, for instance…

  • “Case studies of interactive dreaming that will provide mutually confirming evidence that consciousness is never confined to the brain.
  • “Documented and witnessed reports of dream precognition, telepathy, and other psi phenomena that will establish that these are entirely natural events and that our everyday experience is not the only engagement with time and space that is possible.
  • “Serial dreams in which we return to locales where we seem to be leading a continuous life as our present selves, but with some different elements in the scene.  For example: we may be married to a different person, living in a different town, following a different line of work.  Serial dreams of this type may provide strong experiential evidence for the ‘parallel universes’ hypothesis.
  • “Serial dreams in which we enter the situation or perspective of people living in other times or dimensions who are clearly not our familiar selves.  These experiences may be suggestive of our connectedness, in our multidimensional identity, with a vast family of consciousness in many time periods and frequency domains.”

The Eclipse Grand Cross is tight, spanning only three Degrees, 17-19 of the Mutable Signs (Pisces, Virgo, Sagittarius, Gemini).

In general, Angles between planets that are less than three Degrees apart can be considered to have a strong impact on the Present Moment.  Angles between planets that are less than eight Degrees apart will have less effect on the Present Moment, but will have profound impact on any project or Entity or Identity that is born at the time.  

“Orb” is the astrological term for the inexactitude of interplanetary Angles, but we prefer “Sensitivity” because how responsive we are to the Angles depends on how Sensitive we are to Energy.  The average Muggle might be hard-pressed to detect one Degree of Orb, while a Sensitive person could feel the impact of eight or ten Degrees even in the Present Moment.  We’ll all be much more Sensitive to any current-moment Angle that mirrors an Angle in our Natal chart.

Because we use many more planets, asteroids, dwarfs, and Centaurs than traditional astrology, for birth charts we try to keep our Attention directed toward Angles that are less than five Degrees apart.  Because we expect most of our readers to be Sensitive to Energy, we often use five degrees for Present-Moment charts as well.

Exceptions arise when Angles adjoin one another.  For instance, the Total Solar Eclipse occurs at 19 Degrees of Pisces, two Degrees from Chiron at 21 Degrees, and three Degrees from the South Node at 22 Degrees.  But Ceres sits at 16 Degrees, three Degrees on the other side of the Eclipse.  So we have a choice: we can interpret Eclipse-Chiron-South Node and Eclipse-Ceres as two distinct relevant Energies, or we can read Ceres-Eclipse-Chiron-South Node as one Stellium and one Energy.  To be thorough, we should do both, that is, read all three.

So now we’ve stretched from 17-19 Degrees to 16-22 Degrees, sevan Degrees of Separation.  Still well within traditional astrology’s span for a birth chart.  Lilith is also at 22 Degrees, so this allows our Grand Trine and Kite, since Pallas, like Saturn, is at 17 Degrees.  Haumea is very Conjunct Lilith, but at 24 Degrees.  We can’t ignore Haumea’s promise to Rebirth Lilith, but this brings us to 17-24 Degrees, and 16-24 if we  include Ceres, which is hard to exclude when the Ceres-Saturn Square is only half a Degree from being Exact.  While this seems like way too much slop for Present-Moment consideration, we can’t ignore the interconnections.

So far we have involved planets in Pisces (Ceres-Eclipse-Chiron-South Node), Aquarius (Pallas), Sagittarius (Saturn), Libra (Lilith-Haumea), Virgo (Jupiter-North Node), and Gemini (Chaos).  Uranus-Eris at 19-23 of Aries makes our Kite into five-sixth of a Grand Sextile, and the asteroid Klotho at 17 Leo completes it.

Klotho is one of the “Fates” – Klotho cuts the fabric from which Lifetimes are woven, Lachesis measures out the length of a Lifetime, and Atropos cuts the chord when that length is reached.  Their mother Moirai completes the foursome.  

It’s important to remember that Fate and Free Will, as a Duality, cannot be properties of the Universe at Large, as the Universe at Large is Multifarious.  Duality does happen to be a signal property of the Observing Human mind, however, so we interpret Fate as a philosophical issue, not an Existential issue.  It is striking, though, how often astrology seems to Teach us about what’s going on, as if our Co-Creations have long been mapped out by the Stars, as if the best outcome we could hope for from a Lifetime would be an Oscar.

We’re fond of saying that if we use Senses and Skills beyond the intellect, or if we desire to peer into the Unconscious, there is no Contradiction, only Paradox.  In most cases that’s giving the mind more credit than it deserves, but it’s certainly a valid Perspective.  So we could profitably view the Question of Fate and Free Will as a Paradox.  In fact, we can even look at it through Genia’s Yang-Feminine Perspective as a case of “both-and simultaneity without loss of distinctions”!  

How handy.  We’re being Rebirthed into the Yang-Feminine Age as we speak!  

We don’t usually think of Klotho as a heavy hitter, but completing a Grand Sextile gets our Attention, particularly with Haumea Rebirthing Lilith.  The combination means that…

This is a particularly germinal time for building foundations for our Role in the New “Fresh Violets in an Ancient Pottery Bowl” Culture that we’re Co-Creating.

Big revisions to our Cultural Zeitgeist were promised by the 2009 Neptune-Chiron Initiation, “Fresh Violets in an Ancient Pottery Bowl,” which we consider to be the astrological correlate of the Derivative Crisis that the Lizards quite successfully spun as a Mortgage-Deadbeat Crisis.  Genia’s comments are validation for what we’ve been talking about in this regard.

In a significant way, we’re “cutting the cloth” this month for our New economic and ecologic Persona.  We’ve suggested that major Commitments are better delayed till after June’s Eris-Uranus Initiation, since we can expect to meet whole new elements of ourselves then, but if we Trust our Knowing, there is a lot of preparatory work we can be doing that doesn’t involve firm Commitment.  And while New Moons are generally considered to impact the following two to four weeks, Eclipses are usually given a longer span of influence, often nine months.  So if we pinned on the Pattern this month, and wielded our pinking shears in July, we’d be in good stead.

Kelley Hunter usually reads the more traditional astrological symbols, while I stray into all manner of questionable nooks and crannies, so it’s particularly validating when the two of us walk down the same lane.  Her readings have been more mundane than mine of late, so we haven’t been linking to her newsletter.  On the other hand, she literally “wrote the books” on Lilith, and few folks are more in touch with the evolving Age of Lilith than she.  Her reading for this Eclipse mirrors ours, but of course as always adding much of note…

http://heliastar.com/cosmic-news/the-new-note-eclipse/

So we regard this Eclipse chart as a legitimate Grand Sextile, in addition to the Kite, Grand Trine, and Grand Cross – very Powerful.  The nature of a Sextile is Grace, as long as we provide the initial impetus to kickstart the process.  A Grand Sextile is about processes that feed on themselves and become virtuous cycles, like Genia’s interleaving helixes.  We may even be able to kickstart one of the Sextiles and watch it activate the other five!  Let’s talk about that in another installment.

I don’t want to leave this train of thought without bringing Pluto into the picture.  Pluto, at 18 Capricorn, Sextiles the Eclipse, and this Sextile forms the base of a Finger of God pointing directly at Klotho.  So it’s a good thing we included Klotho.  It doesn’t pay to ignore Pluto, or Eclipses.

Pluto represents that which Cannot Be Ignored.  I think of Pluto as a Powerful River, not in Space but in Time.  Paddling our canoe upstream is not an option; we’ll simply get pulled backwards into the rapids, if not the falls.  We need to ride this River downstream.  We can, however, steer toward one bank or the other, camp on an island, and since we can see where we’re going, pull out to portage around the falls.

The Klotho Finger of God tells us to Pay Attention Now to the way we’re designing the New Life that we’re Rebirthing for the Age of Lilith, to make sure that our New Life flows with the current and not against it.  The Eclipse-Ceres Conjunction reinforces this Directive, Asking us to Attend to Sustainability here.  

And to the other side of the Sustainability Coin, Sustenance – which means Letting Go of what’s no longer necessary – especially our Limiting Beliefs, which will be illuminated brightly for us with the Eclipse (which provides Illumination by showing us what it’s like without what we take for granted) on the South Node (which harbors our Held Emotions).  Penny Kelly spends about 90% of her book describing how difficult it was to Let Go of all the Resistance she had to Receiving Insight from The Elves of Lily Hill Farm.

The keystone in this Drama is the Initiation of Moirai, mother of the Fates, by Pluto on 10 March, at 18 Capricorn, “The Union Jack flag flies from a British warship.”  Rudhyar’s interpretation, “Protection provided by institutions in charge of maintaining order,” reeks of the Patriarchy, as Rudhyar’s roots were deep in European traditions.  

Our interpretation springs instead from the 1/1/2000 Initiation of Chiron by Pluto, “A flag turning into an Eagle, turning into a Chanticleer heralding the Dawn.”  The flag represents the old Loyalist status quo Ego, the Eagle the wide, inclusive Perspective of the Yang Feminine, and the Dawn of course the EnLightenment that follows.

So now we’re tossed back into the “Paradox” of Fate and Free Will with a renewed sense of Importance.  It would probably be quite accurate to say that astrology shows us our Fate if we proceed Unconsciously.  If we interpret the Squares to the Eclipse negatively, we’d Expect that because the Eclipse will cause us to freeze like a Deer in the headlights because there are too many Choices (Chaos), we’ll find our Future to be severely Limiting (Saturn).  

And I imagine that this will be an apt description of the Future confronting many of the Muggles that still suffer under the Illusion that their employer and their government have their interest at Heart, as the propaganda machine continues to work overtime to keep them convinced.  Ask your doctor if Climate Change Denial is good for you, it should say.  Ask your doctor if Globalization is good for you.  Ask your doctor if Glyphosate-saturated, mineral-deficient food-like substances are good for you.  If Death occurs, tell your doctor immediately and discontinue use.

I’m sure it’s an apt description for the poor blokes who’ve just been trying to survive the Drought and Turmoil in the Middle East, and for the Greeks being trampled by the results, after being wrung out by the Vulture Capitalists and Multinational Patriarchs running the EU.  We may not be able to divert the Pluto River, but we do have the option to Respond Consciously to the currents, to recognize that The Most Important Thing (Saturn) confronting us is Making Choices to steer our Unlimited Future (Chaos) in directions that promote our Deepest Desires and further our Mission in the Lifetime (Jupiter-North Node).

We still have quite a bit of material left in this Eclipse chart that keeps on Giving – to be continued!

My New Favorite ‘Roid

February 4, 2016

As our Chief Asteroid Officer Elizabeth points out, the chart of tomorrow’s Sedna Station is fascinating and very Powerful.  We’ll go into detail about that in a minute, but for now let’s skip directly to the punchline.  The key to the chart (in the sense that it unlocks the Energy in the chart) is an asteroid named Hopi, after a group of Native Americans descended from the Aztecs, whose worldview is based on total reverence and respect for all things.  To me, that’s a great start.

When you equally space four planets around the Wheel of the Zodiac, it’s called a Grand Cross.  The essence of the Grand Cross is Motivation.  Normally, when two planets are a fourth of the way ’round the Wheel from each other, it’s a Challenge.  We call it a Challenge to Mastery, because it Motivates to constant improvement, though seen through the Perfectionist’s eye, it often feels Frustrating.  

But when you position four planets in this way, they’re in Balance, and we simply don’t have time to indulge the Perfectionist’s eye, because we’re too busy scurrying from one Challenge to the next that we seldom stop to think about it.  So the Grand Cross is the ultimate in perpetual Motivation.  Most Grand Cross people are Superachievers.

If you equally space three planet around the Zodiac, it’s called a Grand Trine – Trine as in three.  The essence of the Grand Trine is Grace; we often refer to it as “Dumb-Luck” Grace, because it flows so effortlessly and automatically.  Remember those people you grew up with who were “naturals” at something?  You may have had to work your butt off at it, but to them it was as natural as Breathing.  Those are the Grand Trine people.

Till they figure out that other people have their own natural and acquired Skills, a Grand Triner can even be a bit arrogant, thinking “this is so Easy – what’s wrong with them?”  They usually outgrow that pretty early, as soon as they’re involved in a Team and realize that everyone has their Role.

You know those people who Accomplish so much that you can’t comprehend how they do it?  Well, some of them are just good at taking credit for other people’s work.  But some of them were born with a Grand Cross AND a Grand Trine.  There’s a fellow who dropped out of Stanford on his second day there, started PayPal, sold it, bought a disused GM plant and started making fancy electric cars, and now he launches satellites for NASA on his homemade rockets – successfully!  

They say he knows as much about rocket science as the experienced engineers he hires.  His next act will be to reduce the cost of space travel by 99%, on his way to colonizing Mars.  He has a big Grand Cross and three Grand Trines in his Nativity.  These “Grand” Configurations are the Cat’s Meow in astrology – if you want to be the Successful Extrovert your Mother always wanted, that is.  The “Grand” Configurations are there for you – you don’t have to Work at them.  The represent prenatal Alignments in your Psyche that makes Life easier.

For the last week we’ve been experiencing a Grand Septile – seven planets equally spaced around the Loop in a Seven-Rayed Fairy Star.  The essence of such a Grand Septile is Magic – Timing, really, knowing when the moment is right to Act with the utmost Power and Effectiveness without wasting any of your Energy.  Our Stanford-dropout rocket-scientist friend has most of a Grand Quintile too – five equally space planets arrayed around the Zodiac – Mastery of Learning.

When you have six planets equally spaced around the Circle, it’s called a Grand Sextile, and its essence is Harmony and Ease.  Not Work, but Love.  Like the Grand Trine, it symbolizes Grace, but not dumb-luck Grace.  Rather, it’s about taking the first step to start Energy moving in the direction you want it to move.  It’s the Patron Configuration for our adventures with PIAVA.  A Grand Sextile has two Grand Trines embedded in it.

The Discovery chart for this asteroid Hopi, my new favorite asteroid, has both an Grand Cross and a Grand Sextile in it, plus a third Grand Trine – an excellent Energy for Manifesting total reverence and respect for all things!  And the chart for Sedna’s Station tomorrow has a Grand Cross and a Grand Sextile – if you include the asteroid Hopi!  Hopi completes the Grand Sextile.  Do you remember what was in the bottom of Pandora’s Box, that didn’t fly away when the lid came off?

Oh, and did we mention that the asteroid Pandora is there with Hopi too?  What a “Coincidence”!  Along with the asteroids Sappho and Arachne.  Arachne is particularly appropriate, since in the Hopi Mythology it was Spider Grandmother who wove the Universe.

What all this means, is that any projects we started this week, or start Thursday or Friday or this weekend, will fly like a rocket!  Full of Motivation, full of Love, full of Ease and Grace, and full of natural Effortless Alignment.  If we’ve invested any time and Energy into Embracing the places where Fear arose, that will amplify our Endeavor even more.

Now it’s time to remind you about our usual format here.  Left-justified bold italic type is meant to communicate with anyone.  If you know a little astrology, or if you want to learn some by osmosis, then read the indented “normal” type – we talk more about the actual astrology there.  If we need to define any technical astrological terms, we’ll do it in doubly-indented italic type.  We use the Fuchsia type for emphasis.  So now let’s talk about the actual astrology…

The Grand Cross in the Sedna-Station chart includes an Opposition between dwarf planets Chaos and Ixion (the Unlimited Potential of our Abandoned natural Genius), Square to the Nodes.  Jupiter is on the North Node, and Chiron on the South (Drop your Karma and Expand your Desires by Reframing your bummers).  For additional Motivation there are also an Asbolus T-Square across the Neptune-Orcus Opposition (an Open Window into our Limiting Beliefs), and a Moon-Venus-Pluto T-Square across the Opposition between Lilith and Vesta-Uranus (We can Manifest like Gangbusters by using our Yindependence and by PIAVAing Alignment between our Unconscious Beliefs and our Soul’s Purpose).

In the Grand Sextile, Hopi-Arachne-Pandora-Sappho at the Midpoint of Leo is Trine to Saturn at the Midpoint of Sagittarius and Vesta-Uranus at the Midpoint of Aries (We Create Reverence and Respect for All Things by Trusting our Instinct and Refraining from intellectualizing our Goals).  This Grand Trine is Sextile to the Midpoints of the Air Signs – Lilith in Libra, the Sun in Aquarius, and Chaos in Gemini (It will be a great time to find our Community).  As the corner where the Grand Cross and the Grand Sextile meet, Chaos – symbolizing Unlimited Potential – rules the chart.  In rocket science, the Sky is not the Limit!

Stationary Sedna itself, in Taurus, sits in its own Earth-Sign Grand Trine with Mercury in Capricorn and Jupiter-North Node in Virgo (We Let Go of many Obstacles by Undefining Ourself).  Chiron-South Node in Pisces makes it into a Kite (Empathy for the Orphans!).  In Jupiter-North Node, of course, this Grand Trine also intersects the Grand Cross, providing a secondary focus of Expanding into our Mission and Deepest Desires.

And, five of the seven Rays remain of our Fairy-Star Grand Septile: Jupiter-North Node, Juno-Mars, Chariklo-Hylonome, Vesta-Uranus, and Asbolus.

We’ll look at the Hopi Discovery chart tomorrow.

The six corners of the Grand Sextile (Great Grace, once we take the First Step) in the first Decanate of the Dynamic Signs (Intuitive Creative Action) include…

  • The Nodes (Linear Time) at 10 Degrees of Aries (South) and Libra (South)
  • Saturn Retrograde (The Most Important Thing in the Long Term) at 5-4 Degrees of Sagittarius
  • Ceres (Sustainability and Elimination of the Unnecessary) at 3-5 Degrees of Aquarius
  • Juno (The Edges of Consciousness) at 7-8 Degrees of Leo
  • Venus (Walking in Beauty) at 3-10 Degrees of Gemini

The two Diamond Stars (Motivation without Roadblocks), which we’ll take up soon, create a Finger of God (Pay Attention!) pointing at the North Node.

The result of our new Adventures will be greater Attention to our Missions.  We won’t really know what we’re Doing or why we’re Doing it until after we start, but it’s important to follow our Instinct to Do, to dive in with both feet without knowing our destination, Trusting that we will be Guided as we go.  Change requires Grief, as we Lose what we’ve become accustomed to as the Ground of our Being.  Embrace Confusion and Grief as signs that you’re on the right track, not indications that you’ve gone astray.  You don’t need to grasp Confusion and Grief, but don’t sidestep them either.  Just be Present with them, Lovingly, and they’ll shift into Guidance quickly.

You can see the two Grand Trines (Dumb-Luck Grace) and the three Mystic Rectangles (Successful Response to Challenge) embedded in every Grand Sextile.

The three Oppositions that drive the Mystic Rectangles include

  • The Nodal Axis – our Mastery of the Past in preparation for the Future
  • Venus Opposite Saturn – Compassion versus Control
  • Juno Opposite Ceres – Bringing into Consciousness roadblocks to Sustainability

Of course we resolve all Oppositions and Contradictions by shifting our Attention to “the Coin” rather than the heads or the tails.  The three Coins in the fountain here are Linear Time, Detachment, and Sustainable Consciousness.

Even Busier Week: Portal 3.31-4.8

March 31, 2015

mntao7133bpWe may want to have a Manganotantalite Crystal handy, or at least a picture of one we can Channel Energy from, as Manganotantalite – Manganese Tantalum Oxide – is very good at gilding our tongue. 

  λ    λ    λ    λ    λ 

We’re visited by four Centaurs and a Total Lunar Eclipse.

  λ    λ    λ    λ    λ 

The Centaur Nessus

Elizabeth points out that Vesta, the head of our Flying Squirrel, is at 2 Pisces, “A squirrel hiding from hunters: The need for self-protection.”  She quotes Anne Ortelee, “You can’t make this stuff up!”

And a couple of other things have popped up.  First, Vesta is Conjunct the Centaur Nessus!  My list of dwarf planets and Centaurs isn’t wide enough to include everybody, so I only occasionally look at the Centaurs Nessus and Asbolus.  Well, this puts Nessus at the focus of our Flying Squirrel.  Nessus is about Privilege and the calling out of Privilege, particularly Unconscious male Privilege.

So this week is a big week for a shift in Gender Balance, so Reanimation of the Earth is really right in line.  Keep your eye on the News to see if more MCPs don’t shoot themselves in the foot like the Indiana government has with its attempt to legalize discrimination against everyone who offends your Limiting Beliefs.  Which is actually an excellent practice for this week…

  • Who offends you? 
  • What Experience lies beneath that offense? 
  • Any sense in which it Mirrors some part of yourself that you reject? 

Don’t forget the Funhouse Mirrors. 

For instance, I was grumbling to myself this afternoon about this very thing.  When I suggested to myself that it might behoove to replace these negative thoughts with positives, my mind’s response was “Good, I’ll think about how good it would feel to get even!”  Nice fellow, very spiritual.  It was trespass that irritated me, but when I ask myself how I trespass (the direct Mirror), nothing pops up.  In the Funhouse Mirror, though, what shows up is Deservingness.  Am I willing to stand up and unequivocally Claim my Space?  When I contemplate that, I find only visions of escalating violence rather than any sense of Peace and Safety.  I don’t even have an image of the possibility of Claiming my Space.  So I get to look beneath that Mirror for the little man behind the curtain.  When I find him, look out, I’m going to…!

  λ    λ    λ    λ    λ 

The Centaur Asbolus

And then there’s Asbolus.  In early Gemini, Asbolus completes a Grand Sextile, not in the short-term Moon-Vesta Flying Squirrel, but in the second, long-term Mercury-Makemake Flying Squirrel.  So our Grand Sextile endures for a solid week.  The corners are Asbolus, Juno, Makemake, Saturn, Ceres, and Mercury.  Ceres has been Out of Bounds since Christmas.

A Grand Sextile (six planets evenly spaced around the Zodiac), recall, is a “virtuous circle,” where everything feeds and supports everything else.  While we can think of a Grand Trine (three planets evenly spaced) as “dumb-luck” Grace, a Grand Sextile is more about Reward for Action and Creativity.  When we “try something,” chances are it’ll work better than we imagined.  Of course the six-pointed Star includes three nested Grand Trines, so there’s no shortage of spontaneous Creativity.

So Asbolus (Clairvoyance) supports Juno (Consciousness) which supports Makemake (Manifestation) which supports Saturn (Focus) which supports Ceres (Sustainability) which supports Mercury (Alertness) which supports Asbolus, etc, in a rising crescendo.  Not only that, but we can take these in any order we want – so So Sustainability supports Consciousness which supports Focus, just to suggest one possible partial combination.

In other words, this week Intuition and Analysis and Growth and Attention and Permanence and Creativity are all mutually supportive.

  λ    λ    λ    λ    λ 

The Centaur Hylonome

The first Flying Squirrel, the short-term one created by the fast-moving Moon, doesn’t form it’s own Grand Sextile because there are two Vacancies, one in late Gemini or early Cancer and the other in late Libra or early Scorpio.  There are probably Asteroids there, but unless the ‘roids are particularly relevant to the themes already identified, I don’t usually worry about them.  Of course we’d find the prolific bisexual Apollo Out of Bounds in early Cancer.  Acceptance of LGBTI is an important part of Gender Balance.

When our Beliefs or Dogmas or Archetypes change, our Boundaries change with them.  Which brings us to the Stellium, a significant Configuration in its own right, for several reasons.  The Stellium that forms the first Flying Squirrel’s right hand includes Pallas (Boundaries), Quaoar (Lawgiver) which was Stationary March 28, Chariklo (Beauty and Charm) which is Out of Bounds and also Stationary, and Hylonome (Grief and Liberation) which is this week’s main event, as it is Stationary at 9am PDT April 4 (http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt9.htm), at 2 Capricorn.

When a planet is either Stationary or Out of Bounds, its influence is Stronger than usual.  A planet is Out of Bounds when it’s further north than the Tropic of Cancer, or further south than the Tropic of Capricorn.  A planet is Stationary when it’s within one degree (or within a week or so) of turning around – going Retrograde or going Direct.  I won’t go into the details of Retrogradation here, since you can look up either “Stations” or “Retrograde” or “Repeating Events” (or even “Can-Opener”) in the Categories section at right.  But there’s one consideration I do want to discuss here.

In general, when a planet is Approaching a major event, such as a Station or an important Angle, the influence is Strong, and grows Stronger until the event is Exact.  After that, the influence fades fairly quickly if one is Conscious about the event, more slowly if one is not Conscious around it, and not at all if one is Defended against it.  Stationary refers to the speed of a planet’s travel.  So even though Quaoar’s Station was Exact last week, it’s still Stationary, but it’s impact is probably waning, as it’s not Approaching its event but Separating from it.  On the other hand, Hylonome is Stationary and Approaching its Exact Station, so it is very Strong. 

The Mythical Centaur Hylonome committed Suicide with the spear that killed her Lover, rather than live without him.  So we interpret the Cosmic Centaur Hylonome to symbolize Grief over major Changes in our Life, such as detachment from an Archetype, or from any other Energy with which we had been Merged.  We sometimes refer to it as Grief unto Ego Death, or Grief over Liberation.  When we Let Go of an Archetype, we are literally Liberated, but all Losses must be Grieved, so Grief is involved even at Liberation.  The Loss of an Archetype is indeed an Ego Death.

With Pallas Conjunct, Boundaries are obviously involved, and there is a strong implication that we will be strengthening a Boundary against an Archetypal Trance, or loosening a Boundary that overprotected us.  The other two Energies, Quaoar and Chariklo – both of which are Strong by virtue of being either Stationary or Out of Bounds – imply charisma, as Charm and Beauty merge with The Lawgiver.

So we might expect to encounter a situation where we reluctantly but necessarily “draw the line” to prevent our Energies from being drained by gilded-tongued alien Energies that want to control our Lives and Decisions.  Or it may be us with the gilded tongue, talking our way out of long-standing entanglements that no longer serve us.

The Lunar Total Eclipse

Four hours before Hylonome’s Station, at 5am PDT on April 4 (http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt5.htm), there’s a Total Eclipse of the Moon, at 15 Libra, “Circular Paths.”  Of course 15 Libra Opposes Uranus and Squares Pluto, making this Eclipse another major debriefing of our Yintegrity adventures.  The Energy continues into April 8, as the Sun and then Mercury work their way across Uranus.  Meanwhile Jupiter, which forms a Trine-Sextile Bridge across the Axis of the Eclipse, is Stationary at 10am PDT April 8.

Eclipses reveal to us Energies which were previously merged with the background but which are now made obvious by their absence.

Between now and April 8, we will discover a huge new element of our True Self that we hadn’t noticed before, creating a major shift in our Lives.  We’ll need to Grieve the Loss of the obsolete Identities that will fall away as a result.  All Losses must be Grieved, no matter how much we think we’d Celebrate at their demise.  The more we Embrace our Grief, the less painful it is.

The Centaur Chariklo

Almost forgot that Chariklo, part of the Stellium, is Stationary on April 7!  We’ll look at that in a separate post.

Harmonic Concordance 10 Years On

November 17, 2013

tail_stripComet ISON racing through the last half of Libra, spanning 3-4 degrees per day.  It enters Scorpio on November 20, crosses the North Node on the 22nd, Mercury-Saturn on the 24th, and catches the Sun on November 28.  The photo is by Waldemar Skorupa.  The Portal 11.20 Grand Sextile and the Portal 4.21 ISON Grand Sextile are echos of the most famous of Grand Sextiles, the Harmonic Concordance of November 2003.  The Harmonic Concordance Grand Sextile was discovered (astrologically) and publicized, at great personal expense, by Johnny Mirihiel…

http://harmonicconcordance.wordpress.com/

http://www.harmonicconcordance.org/

Here’s some of the history…

The Vacancies article gives us some benchmarks to compare to our own subsequent Lives.  For instance, I have natal planets in three of the four Muse Vacancies.

The Harmonic Concordance brought with it…

  • The descent of Creator Consciousness upon each individual
  • The Ideal of Unity Consciousness, that we are all ONE
  • The creation of a healing and protection for Mother Earth

How are these working out for us?  Here’s one perspective…

The collapse of the Berlin Wall, the demise of the Mubarak and Gaddafi regimes, the meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, and the near-meltdown of the western financial system all share some features:

  1. the end of an inflexible, centralized control structure, one that previously had been considered indestructible
  2. the beginning of a spontaneous, decentralized grassroots movement of people letting go of their fear and waking up to another level of awareness and interconnectedness
  3. the opening of some small cracks in the old system, followed by its crumbling and eventual collapse
  4. the rebound of the old forces as soon as the memory of the collapse began to fade away; the old forces tried to obscure the actual root causes of the breakdown in order to extend their privileged access to power and influence”

We believe that these kinds of events will keep coming our way.  These disruptive changes mark the beginning of a new era that we have entered as a global community, an era of increasing disruption.  Sometimes such movements will give rise to movements that bring about profound change, and sometimes they will falter and fail.  In many cases these disruptions are already on their way.  It is too late to prevent all of them.  So where is our point of control?  It is in how we respond to the impact that these disruptions have on how we work and live.

A disruptive change affects not only our outer world, but also our inner self.  Such moments bring our world to a sudden stop.  They may be terrifying, but they also constitute a great blank space that can be filled in one of two ways: by freezing and reverting to the patterns of the past, or by opening us up to the highest future possibilities.  The second response – leaning into, sensing, and actualizing one’s emerging future – is what this book is about.

“This book” is Leading from the Emerging Future: From Ego-System to Eco-System Economies, Otto Scharmer and Katrin Kaufer (pp.28-29).  Or see http://presencing.com/ and http://www.ottoscharmer.com/.

Here’s a testimonial about Unity Consciousness…

http://strikedebt.org/rjupdate3/

They’re announcing almost $15 million in debt reduction for individuals, mostly medical, for pennies on the dollar, from our donations.  They’re celebrating a one-year anniversary, with November 23 events in Portland OR and Berkeley CA.

And Creator Consciousness?

We are meant to be Creators.  But in order to create consciously, we have to become conscious first – otherwise our creations are echoes of our pain and fears (because these pains and fears are louder broadcasts than happiness and harmony.  When we are clear and in alignment, we see the world as it is – beyond the limits of matter-perception.  An ability to envision, to see, to interact with other-than-matter components of this life is a prerequisite to creation.”  –Eugenia Oganova, Awakening the Harmony Within: How to Create with Spirit, pp.69-70.

Remember that Sextiles – especially Grand Sextiles – represent Creative Grace – the Grace flows freely, but after we take the first step.

The quality of results produced by any system depends on the quality of awareness from which people in the system operate.  The formula for a successful change process is not ‘form follows function’ but ‘form follows consciousness.’  The structure of awareness and attention determines the pathway along which a situation unfolds.”  —Scharmer & Kaufer p.18.

I’m intrigued that re-reading http://www.harmonicconcordance.org/squares—oppositions.html ten years later, I wouldn’t change a thing.  I guess that means I haven’t grown much.  Or that if you have a message for the world, you need to repeat it a zillion times no matter how much you bore yourself, because as my first teacher would say, Your own Truth goes right through you!  That is, you hear it and instantaneously know it to be true, but your programming covers it up as quickly as the old forces obscure the actual root causes of the breakdown. 

Here’s an excerpt from the Harmonic-Concordance debriefing

“Recall that our most precious attribute is our Attention – whatever we pay Attention to, we create more of.  So Grace and Equality is one thread we can look for in our lives over the last 10 days.  Have there been any circumstances arise, where you did not feel the loving hand of Grace?  Have real or imagined issues arisen in your life where Equality was missing?  If so, when they arose, where did your Attention go?  Did you focus on the difficulty or the inequality?  Did you lovingly Attend to your natural reactions?  Did you focus on the Grace and Equality you’ve been asking for?

 “Did you reject your natural emotional reactions to difficulty or inequality, or power-over them with ‘positive thinking’?  Another name for rejecting our natural emotional reactions, by the way, is self-abandonment.  When we reject our natural emotional reactions as ‘negative,’ we create more abandonment.

“Amid all the hoopla about Grace and Ascension, it’s easy to forget that the strongest planet at the HC was Uranus – Integrity.  Not yang Integrity (honoring Commitments) but yin Integrity (honoring Intuition).  Not only was Uranus the strongest planet in the HC, but it was also the only planet not involved in the Grace.  The implication is that we have to supply the Integrity.  No one gives it to us.  Kinda tautological, when ya think about it.

“By definition, Power is never given, only taken.  If ‘nice people’ don’t take their own Power, then ‘mean people’ do it for them.  In the last 10 days, have you been honoring yer Commitments?  Most of our yang Commitments were negotiated under Karma, not under Grace, and to survive under Grace they will need to be renegotiated or disavowed.”

Sounds like a broken record, doesn’t it!  It’s just a little different every time, and every repetition, especially when the perspective is shifted just a bit, helps link our Abandoned places to our Loving places, and helps build the new circuits in the brain that reinforce our Emerging Future.

The November 17 Full Moon

There isn’t much in the Full Moon chart that we haven’t already written about.  The most noteworthy Configuration is the Uranus Quintile Yod with Pallas and Saturn…

We will be Learning (Quintile) much by Focusing (Saturn) on the Edges (Pallas) of the space where it’s okay to drop our Mask (Uranus) and our Boundaries (Pallas) with the people we don’t feel Safe being fully Honest with (Uranus).  Approaching this with Curiosity (Yod) rather than analysis will be a huge boon.

There’s also an interesting Mystic Questangle – two parallel Quincunxes one Sign apart – Quincunxes between Ceres and the South Node, and between Mercury-North Node and Uranus.  The Quincunx creates a Teachable Moment, when we’re more open than usual to expanding our horizons.  It combines the Fifth Harmonic (Learning) with the Twelfth Harmonic (Pattern-Breaking).  In the Mystic Questangle, the Twelfth Harmonic dominates, but the Curiosity is still critically important…

The Magic here flows from Wondering what it is about our Karmic Patterns that seems to make our Self-Sabotage enduring, and how we might break through the skin of that bubble.  If we can maintain our Curiosity, we get insights about our Mission and our True Self that will help.  You may already have the answer but you’re rejecting it.  Every time you think you’ve found a clue, especially when you feel Certain (Certainty destroys Wonder), PIAVA the next step. 

We’re back to our analogy about Calculus – we have to envision where we would like to go and who we would like to be, and then reverse-engineer the path from there back to here – lean into, sense, and actualize our emerging futureThe process that Otto maps – Open Mind, Open Heart, Open Will and their corresponding “enemies” the Voice of Judgment and Doubt, the Voice of Cynicism, the Voice of Fear – is fascinating.  His “Open Will” is the willingness to Let Go of our Patterns and Let Come the Orientations that await us in our Future – should we choose to accept them.

Portal 10.24 Part II

October 23, 2013

As we mentioned earlier,

The Uranus Quintile Yod with Mars and Mercury persists until around 7pm PST October 24.  That in itself is a Learning Opportunity about how whatever we Say (Mercury), Do (Mars), or Think (Mercury) either reflects our True Self, or reinforces Patterns that bind our Soul Self in Spider’s Silk.  That should be a pretty clear Choice.  If it’s difficult, stop yourself in mid-sentence or mid-action or mid-thought, make Amends, and start over!

But the main effect of Portal 10.24 is a Grand Sextile that runs from around 6am PDT until about 1pm PDT.  The Gang of Six includes the Moon (Manifestation), Mars (Action), the Nodes (Adding Wings to our Birdcage), Pluto (Trance Reformation), and Chiron (Reframing).  A Grand Sextile is like Dominoes – with just a little push, a whole chain of events falls into place.

GS102413 The Grand Sextile is the blue hexagon.  The six Trines are drawn in in light blue, so they don’t drown out the other indications – the Quintile Yod in red-orange, and the Juno-Nodes T-Square in dark red.

 

 

Portal 9.27 On Stage

September 26, 2013

Here’s a picture of our Pallas Diamond Star, a Pallas T-Square (red triangle) and a Pallas Finger of God (green triangle) creating the typical “bowl of Grace” (blue lines) beneath the T-Square…

DSCN4563With the Moon re-completing the (blue) Grand Sextile.  I haven’t filled in the Star of David, but if you imagine drawing the other four lines to connect the corners of the Hexagram, you’ll see it.

So, what’s the Big Deal?

Well, first, we have a Hexagram (Partnership) and a Pentagram (Manifestation) going on at the same time.  And one corner of the Hexagram is the Moon, which is often the trigger for Manifestation of Energy into Form.

Then we have a Pallas T-Square with Saturn and the Nodes, and Saturn on the North Node.  To me this says that we’re Challenged to Master (T-Square) how to set Boundaries (Pallas) that Support our Mission (North Node), our Deepest Desire that we don’t usually even believe is possible – except that we’re now intensely Focused (Saturn) on it, increasing the odds.  Since this is a chart for the Planet, we’re speaking of the Planet’s Mission as well as our own.  Of course any project or child born under this chart will embody it.

Plus a Pallas Finger of God (Pay Attention!) with Pluto (Inevitability) and Chiron (Miracles).  Chiron transforms Despair into Miracles by changing our Perspective.  So it is inevitable that we will resolve our Despair (not believing our Mission is possible), if we Focus on the Boundaries between our Soul’s Purpose and our Negative Beliefs.  Inevitable as individuals, and cumulatively as atoms of the Planetary Field.

Pallas sits at 9 Leo, “Glass blowers shape beautiful vases with their controlled breathing.”  Vases hold Flowers, the symbol of Fruit to be.  If you’re an expert meditator, you understand the controlled breathing part.  If you’ve studied Manifestation, you know how important it is to control your Thought Field and focus your Feelings.  I’m in the middle of a reading for someone who has their North Node at 9 Leo – this should be a life-changing Portal for them!

The Grand Sextile and the Diamond Star range over 8-11 degrees of the Yin Signs.  This span of any Sign is where conceptualizing and Creating is in it’s last stages, and Manifestation has begun.  In the Yin Signs, it’s where we’re putting the finishing touches on our Mandala, and releasing it to the Ethers where it can magnetize to it, and to us, what we want and need.  Our next task is to Change the Subject and occupy ourselves with other issues, so our old limited Patterns and Beliefs don’t intrude and leave a hole in the bottom of our beautiful new vase.

It’s important that we focus on How We Will Feel when Miracles befall us and we receive what we haven’t dared to hope for. 

If we focus on What We Want or How It Might Occur, we’ll manifest our Expectations, and those are based on our personal history of not daring to hope.

The Finger of God and the T-Square stretch in Time beyond the Portal, but during the Portal, while the Moon completes the Grand Sextile, our Power is multiplied.  And look who else completes the Grand Sextile – Vesta, that which we hold to be Sacred.  That should trigger our Best Intentions, with Chiron Opposing and illustrating the hopelessness of Fundamentalism (believing that we hold the patent on what’s Sacred).

And I see that we do also still have a Uranus Diamond Star as well!, lighting up our Authentic Self and providing to each of us the same Pentagram-Hexagram opportunities to let go of our masks.  Two Diamond Stars at once!  Truly a unique moment for Creating, particularly since we are on the verge of losing the Grand Trines and Grand Sextiles that have Graced us for much of 2013.

Awakening to the Universal Hologram

September 22, 2013

Connectedness and Individuality

A third Interview with Eugenia Oganova on her new book Awakening the Harmony Within: How to Create with Spirit

Today I’m thinking about Connectedness and its relationship to Individuality.  Eugenia, can you comment on that?

Eugenia:

Jim, perhaps think of it from an expanded conceptual perspective – “we are part of everything” (a fractal of the Universal Hologram), and we are individuals, exploring that Hologram.  Here is an excerpt from the “Is-ness and Illusions” chapter of Awakening the Harmony Within (p.91):

There is one True Reality that is Spirit/Source/Is-ness – All That Is.  Is-ness is Holographic.  Hologram is a condition upon which the information for creating a whole system is stored in each of its parts.  Hologram is a pattern that is whole and complete all to itself, which is part of a pattern, that is whole and complete to itself, and so on.  Every, even the smallest, change made within a hologram, is mirrored throughout the entire hologram.  Our planet, the genetic code in our bodies, our Universe – all are holographic in nature.

“Conceptually Is-ness/Spirit is a Divine Trinity: the ‘Root Cosmic Substance’ (material for creation), the ‘Creator’ (the original spark for creation), and the ‘Light/Word/Code’ (symbiosis of creation).

“Souls are individualized expressions of holographic Is-ness.  Each Soul creates its own reality through its own perception, in order to explore the Source-Code and become God again.  Through this exploratory process Souls gain self-awareness, enriching Source/Spirit/Is-ness with consciousness – an awareness of its own existence.”

What this means is that as individual Souls, we are gaining awareness of the Source/Is-ness that we all are parts of to begin with.

Astrobuss:

Eugenia, can you talk about negotiating the overlaps between “Merging with the Collective” on the one hand, and Individuality of “Focusing our Intent on our own Lessons” on the other?

Eugenia:

Well, Jim, the “merging with the collective” is not really merging… Collective what?  Humans?  Universal entities?  God?  Instead it might be easier to think of it as a balance between “being part of the whole” and “following an individual path” – they are not mutually exclusive!  Most often we have to function within social settings as a part of a group.  Sometimes being alone on one’s path is required, but even then that individual benefits the whole of humanity by providing the point of reference of a particular experience (broadcasting it into the planetary holographic matrix).

If we look at this from a human perspective, this means that even though all humankind is sourced from the same place, each of us doing our part in enriching the whole by honoring our unique perception of reality.  The more we release the veils of our fears, pains and misconceptions, the closer that perception matches the Source.

Astrobuss:

In my experience we often tune into feral, contagious, “group” Emotions that seem to be escaping from the Cultural or even Universal components of the Unconscious.  How would you put that into perspective?  Would we simply tune in to the degree that the feral Vibrations matched our Karma, and not even notice the rest?  It also seems to me that there is an “impersonal” component of Karma – when we embrace our own, we contribute to cleaning up the Planet’s feral Emotions.  Is that notion at all useful in your view?

Eugenia:

There are many Morphogenic Fields on our planet, created by everything on the planet, including us.  Here is an excerpt from the “Morphogenic Fields” chapter of Awakening the Harmony Within (p. 158):

“…The current level of human consciousness is the “training wheels” stage for the formation of Self.  It has created many morphogenic fields separate from Nature, not based on beneficial planetary instinctual intelligence.  The dominant consciousness (‘mass consciousness’) on the planet right now is fear-based, as it has formed from the negative sense of separation, scarcity and war.  Our ‘mass consciousness’ is disharmonic because it includes the actions, thoughts and feelings of humans who are locked inside of the image projections of what a self should be, instead of the true Self.  At the same time that our mass consciousness is fear-based, there are other morphogenic fields that exist based on peace, healing, beauty, and love.  All morphogenic fields in existence change their field strength with every individual feeling, thought, and action that occurs…”

We automatically vibrate as our karma – i.e. we are broadcasting the signal into space that matches our pre-set parameters of issues, fears and pains – unless we become aware, take responsibility for our out-puts, and apply effort to change the broadcast.  If we do that, we vibrate differently, and link with a different, not-karma-based, morphogenic field.

This means that most people on the planet right now are creating unconscious morphogenic fields, based on their karmic issues.  And since we all have similar issues (survival fears, jealousy, embarrassment, guilt, shame, anger, blame, etc.) they all clump together and vibrate as one.

In the “Morphogenic Fields” chapter of Awakening the Harmony Within (p. 159) I said:

“…Individually and collectively we constantly contribute to the development of our Universe with our thoughts and the emotional content behind them.  This is why awakening to the next level of consciousness cannot be possible without responsibility – not only for our actions, but also for our internal environment – thoughts, feelings, senses.

“Morphogenic fields are accessed by generating a particular resonance to match the field’s frequency (fear attracts more fear; anger amplifies anger; compassion brings compassion).  Because higher frequencies are more harmonious, high frequency morphogenic fields can modify/heal lower frequency ones: a field of compassion will resolve hatred; a field of love will resolve war (these are usually the intents of the internet-based intention-setting morphogenic fields)…”

As for contributing to clean up of the planetary karma – really the cumulative human karma – yes, we do, by changing which morphogenic field we choose to amplify (by our out-put contributions).  Here is an excerpt from the “Morphogenic Fields” chapter of Awakening the Harmony Within (p. 159):

“…Embracing our collective responsibility to achieve a level of personal transformation will impact our collective morphogenic field.  Transformation on this collective level is vital for sustainable enlightenment and continuing conscious evolution on both personal and planetary scales…”

Astrobuss:

Wow!  That’s farther than I’ve read in the book, and really nails it!  I need to get busy and finish the book.

Astrology tells us we’re in a period of Grace – even today we’re bathed in the Blessing of a Grand Sextile – a hexagram circling the whole Zodiac, made up of two Grand Trines (Free Lunches), one in Earth (Matter), the other in Water (Emotion).  When you draw a hexagram and then connect all the points to one another, you get two Grand Trines superimposed into a 6 pointed star.  The Sextile is a Sixth-Harmonic Angle, and the Sixth Harmonic is about Partnership, so our collaborative projects are particularly favored.  A Sextile is about “Creative Grace” – the Universe will smile on your projects once you get them started with your own Initiative.  It’s Creative Grace Galore!

Our Mission in September is to find our Gratitude for the Grace we’re under.  Pi has given us a probationary period, where we have a Free Pass for a while, so we can develop new habits for going without Time.  If we party it away, we may be in for a rude shock later in the year.  By now Pluto is Direct and Saturn is descending toward the South Node.  The latter puts us back into periods similar to 2002-2007, 1991-1997, and 1979-1985.  I’m suspecting that if we haven’t worked out our transitions within a few months, it’s going to get a lot harder to do.

Eugenia, what are your perspectives on this?

Eugenia:

This is about being in Connectedness with all Life, vs. being in Separation from Life.  When we are in Separation, we are ‘brewing in our own juices’ – we cannot see straight because of the veils of our issues (misconceptions, pains, fears, and karma). Being in Grace is a point of reference for Connectedness.

The influence of the Comet ISON began to be felt energetically on earth on August 10th and we have been building momentum since then.  This comet, coming into planetary space during the Grand Sextile, is a reminder that we must remain connected to all life in order to become enlightened.  We lived for many thousands of years in Separation from life.  We will need to face that in October.  But to give us a chance to remember the Connectedness, we had a period of Grace before that.

Astrobuss:

Comet ISON is now at 19 Leo, Sextile to Mercury – speaking to us if we first Ask for an audience.

Eugenia:

In the “Desire” chapter of Awakening the Harmony Within I explain the concept of Separation (p.11):

“…Separation is a condition of perceptional limitation, when one’s Self is perceived separate from the Source, and from the rest of life.  We ARE everything even if our perception is focused on a detail of that everything (i.e. a body and a Soul are not separate; your body or someone else’s body, or any other object, are not separate; your Soul and other Souls are not separate; you and every detail of this Universe, in this or other dimensions, are not separate!).   When we forget this, we see ourselves separate from others, and desire something we do not have…”

And this elusive state of enlightment requires us to remember that we are connected to all life at all times.  As I mention in the “Enlightment” chapter of Awakening the Harmony Within (p.59):

Enlightment is a state of conscious Connectedness to all, the opposite of Separation.”

Thank you, Jim, for interviewing me on your blog.  Perhaps we can do it again as more questions arise in your mind, as you read further in my book.  Awakening the Harmony Within: How to Create with Spirit is available on my website, http://www.EugeniaOganova.com (along with a lot of free information!), and on Amazon as well.

Many thanks, Eugenia!  This has been very helpful.  It’ll take me a little time to digest it all and get that new parlor added to my Birdcage!
