Purging Eclipse 2, aka Removing Obstacles

November 9, 2022

Quite an Eclipse! I woke up not knowing who or where I was. My Body remembers its Habits, like eating and typing, but my Mind is still kind of wondering who to Be and what to Do. At the perfect moment, a great post today from Dr. Joe Dispenza…

https://drjoedispenza.com/blogs/dr-joes-blog/investing-in-the-unknown-part-i-evolving-the-experience

“As I tell my students, again and again, we can’t create from a place of survival. If we’re operating from our first three energy centers, if we’re trying to meet our most basic needs, if we’re worried about food, shelter, or safety, if we’re constantly reacting in anger and frustration, then it’s not the time to create. We first need to be centered. We need to be operating from a place of order…

” I start from there – from balance. And then, beginning from that point of homeostasis, I ask myself these fundamental questions: ‘What is my next greatest potential to experience in life? What is the next unknown that would evolve my perception of myself, the way I see the world, and my future?’ Over the decades I’ve been developing and practicing this work, I’ve always approached it with this thought: ‘My life is the great experiment. And I am the scientist.’

“Many years ago, when I had my first clinic in the Pacific Northwest, I used to develop patient X-rays myself. I’d enter the darkroom – and, in the 10 or so minutes it took to process the X-rays, in that place void of any light, I’d work on connecting with the unknown. As the image revealed itself on film after it exited the processor, I’d practice becoming no body; no one; no thing; no where; in no time.

“My premise was this: If I’m truly investing my attention and energy into the unknown, if I really believe in it, really put my attention on it, and I do it with clear intention, then I’ll see the evidence of that effort – in the form of interesting, evolving experiences in my life. And over time, as I practiced, I became more and more adept. As I went deeper into the experiment, those experiences would accumulate. Eventually, I had enough evidence in my life that I was able to detach from any attempt to direct or control the outcome.

Where We Place Our Attention Is Where We Place Our Energy. And so, each time I entered the darkroom – or, once I began traveling frequently, any time I was on a runway; sometimes four times in a day – I did so with the same intention: I’m letting go of any expectation of what my next experience will be. I’m just going to trust that it will be. I would simply make it be about my effort – not the outcome. I’d tell myself, ‘Since the present moment is where the unknown exists, and since where I place my attention is where I place my energy, the effort of staying truly present in the unknown should be what brings the novel event to me.

“I thought of it like investing in a bank account. Except what I was investing in was the unknown. I approached it, each time, with a calm sense of knowing. Not the energy of trying; not the energy of hoping. I just knew that if I kept tuning in; kept connecting; kept being open and curious … sooner or later, something unusual would happen in my life. I’d pause and think: if my thoughts truly create my life, if I truly am a creator, if I just keep investing in the unknown, then my body will follow my mind to this unknown experience.

“Cultivating Curiosity. Often, when people approach me about my practice, it’s because they’re feeling stuck. They’re hung up on wanting an outcome – and their attachment to the thing they seek is exactly what’s preventing them from experiencing it in their lives. They’re preoccupied with wanting. And wanting implies separation. But in the unknown, there’s no separation. That’s because there’s no thing in nothing to be separate from.

And so, each time I connect – each time I become no body, no one, no thing, no where, in no time – I’m not wanting for anything. There’s no want involved; this is purely about curiosity. I am the scientist. And my life is the great experiment. And I’m interested in seeing if I can evolve my truth to some degree. What we’re talking about, essentially, is the delicate balance between intention and surrender – which I’ll talk more about in Part II.”

The Big News is that our Chief Asteroid Officer has discovered that there’s an asteroid Ganesa, whom we know as Ganesha or Ganesh. the Remover of Obstacles and God of Wisdom, Purity, Innocence, Valor, New Beginnings, and Luck, in many Religions …

And it turns out that asteroid Ganesa was Stationary during the Totality of the Eclipse, 3:23 am PST 8 November 2022 (11:23 am GMT, 9:23 pm AEST Qld.), in 13 Cancer, which fills the Vacancy in what would have been the only T-Square in the Eclipse chart, making it a Grand Unx! As our CAO is fond of saying, You Can’t Make This Stuff Up!!

An Unx is 1/12th of anything, the Twelfth Harmonic (Pattern-Breaking) and an Unx Angle sits between two planets that are within a few Degrees of being one Sign apart. In a Grand Unx, twelve planets are spaced more or less equally around the entire Zodiac. That gives us…

  • 12 Unxes, or Opportunities to Break Patterns More Easily because the Universe helps! So any Karma you have between planets in adjacent Signs is Ripe for Harvesting. For instance, are you happy with the way your Manifestation Skills are Working? If not, then the first question to ask, is whether What You Want is Respectful to All Beings (Makemake Conjunct Hopi OOB). Past this hurdle? Then, any Interference from your Held Emotions (Makemake Unx South Node)? Aha, that’s an Unx, so we may be able to just PIAVA it – I Wonder What It Will Be Like When My Held Emotions Don’t Inhibit My Manifestation.
  • Considering Dr. Joe’s comments above, I’m using what for me is a New PIAVA – After several Deepening Breaths through my Nose with my Mouth Closed, I Fill Up my Torso from the bottom to the top, right up into my Brainstem, till I Experience Joy (pausing for a minute if hyperventilation makes me dizzy, then resuming). Then I put a Miniature Diorama of What I Want (here, Pure Manifestation without Karmic Interference) into a Helium Balloon, and Let It Rise into the Heavens.
  • 12 Fully Self-Resolving T-Squares (red triangles), or SuperPowers, one for each planet or group thereof. For example, if we’re Willing to Claim it, the Merger of Our Soul and Our Lifetime Mission is Brightly Illuminated (the Ecliplse on Uranus Conjunct North Node). That’s Heady! Upper Limits! I need a little Chocolate before I Close my Eyes and Feel what that’s Like! (I haven’t had my Daily Ration yet.) Subtle, very “Ordinary” yet not at all, Easy to Lose the Thread! I’ll put in a Balloon the Intention to Remember this Feeling at least twice a day henceforth, and Let It Go.
  • 6 Yin Gate Mystery Schools, one for each Opposition, signifying “Debates” that are much Deeper than the Logical Mind can Grasp. For instance, Karma Opposite Moira-Altjira. I’ve been Thinking that our Karma is pretty similar to our Fate (Moira), but I Guess I need to Open the Question Up to my Intuition instead of just Thinking. And what does Altjira (The Field from which Life Evolved ) have to do with it?
  • The influence of a Full Moon lasts only about two weeks, so this is Temporary, Right? Yes, but All There Is Is Now, so it’s Permanent too, as every Moment Teaches us a different Truth about the Ever-present Nowness. There’s something Unknown that I need to Grok about how Fate and Karma interact with the Evolution of Life. A Question for another Diorama Balloon.
  • 4 Grand Trines (Consummate Grace, blue equilateral triangles), one for each Element – Earth, Air, Fire, Water. One example: Hybris Trine Karma Trine Chiron-Nemesis Trine Hybris, each Trine implying Effortless Cooperation between the Qualities. Hmmm, till I Break Though it, Chiron-Nemesis can be Despair about Guilt. Been there before, fortunately not for a while. The way to Break Karma is to Break our Ego-Attachment to it (Hybris), our Identification with it. So Grace between Hybris (Hubris) and Karma is certainly Welcome. Sounds like the next fortnight will be a good time to Jettison some serious Ancient Karmic Guilt.
  • Where in The Great Work of Our Time (Climate Disaster) do I have Guilt? I do often feel like I should be contributing more on the Global Level, and if I’d won the Big Lottery, that’s where I’d put most of it. Do we have Lifetimes where we Collaborated with the Colonizers, or Died failing to Stop them? The Colonizers have contributed the gasping Lion’s share of the Warming gases, and still do. Another Balloon. Can’t do Colonizers choking on their own Emissions (see Hopi-Makemake above – besides, it’s a Fire or Spiritual Grand Trine), so my Diorama will have to feature Indigenous People Breathing Free and Leading the Way instead.
  • 3 Grand Crosses, one for each Modality – Creative, Stable, Changing. A Grand Cross (a red square with a red X across the diagonals) is another type of SuperPower, where we’re Skilled at Resolving the Recurring Hassles thrown out by very Complex Problems, with lots of internal and external Interactions. What about the Evolutionary Grand Cross – Moira-Altjira Square Ceres-Thereus-Kassandra-Orcus-Sisyphus Square Karma Square Nessus Square Moira-Altjira. It’s gonna be a lot of Work just straightening out Ceres et al before we even start on the Grand Cross!
  • I think it might be about Breaking the Perpetuity of Ongoing Effort to Get Past our Denial and Be Relentless about making our Karma-Breaking Sustainable (Sisyphus-Kassandra-Thereus-Orcus-Ceres), and Doing it Equitably and Collaboratively (Nessus). Though we Admit that we don’t Understand it, we’ve already Let Fly a Balloon about how Fate and Karma interact with the Evolution of Life. So maybe I’m already demonstarting this SuperPower through this Blog, where I’m intending to help Coach us all on Leaving Behind a very Messy Self-Destructive 3D “Reality” and replace it with something more 5Dish.
  • 2 Grand Sextiles (blue hexagrams), one for each type of Power, Magnetic or Dynamic. In a Grand Sextile, All Six Energies Complement one another almost Effortlessly. The one caveat is that it doesn’t start until we kickstart the process. Dynamic Power is the one the Colonizers use – can we throw our wooden shoes into it? It’s Chiron-Nemesis Sextile Moira-Altjira Sextile Hybris Sextile Hopi-Makemake Sextile Karma Sextile Saturn-Arachne Sextile Chiron-Nemesis.
  • Where to start? We don’t want to be Destructive and Competitive, that would put us in their shoes. Can we do something to Slow them Down? The Opposition has been trying to Guilt-Trip them for Decades to no Avail – their Hubris is too great. Their Karma is Destroying their Golden Goose, but they know it, they don’t give a shit, and they’re trying to get as much as they can shoveled into their yacht before The Light Behind the Sun Takes All. Modern-Day Colonialists. We may just have to let them finish the job of Destroying themselves.
  • So, what about the Magnetic Power, can we start something there? Many smart folks have been saying that we needed to Ignore the Old Dying Institutions, and just start our own, so they’ll be ready to step into the Vacuum when the time comes. The Magnetic side goes Ganesha Sextile Ceres-Thereus-Kassandra-Orcus-Sisyphus Sextile Venus-Sun-Mercury-South Node Sextile Atropos-Icarus-Hylonome Sextile Nessus Sextile North Node-Eclipse Moon-Uranus Sextile Ganesha.
  • Where might we stir up Trouble in that Loop? Atropos (Deceased Karma) is always a good place to start, because when Karma Dies, the Old Habits remain, because even if we don’t like them, they’re What We Expect, and they’re Comfortable like an old pair of Shoes. So we could check our natal chart for any planets in the middle of Capricorn that might have Old Karma Attached to them.
  • For instance, I have asteroid Karma, Nemesis, and Pholus there – fresh meat! Pholus usually points to some place where we aren’t “Owning” everything we need to Own. Gay Hendricks tells us that when we don’t Own All of What’s Ours, we remain a Slave to Time rather than shifting to Yintegrity. So it looks like it’s incriminating Karmic Guilt again (asteroid Karma and Nemesis). We met the before, when we were Working with the Grand Trines.
  • Okay, so I don’t really Feel like I have Permission to be Here, or certainly not to Be Myself except in very closely guarded quarters, like this carefully constructed blog where no one can even leave a Comment without my permission. I’ve always Blamed that on early situations between my Parents, but when I attempt to Own that now, of course that’s my Karma.
  • Virtually All of the Difficulty we Encounter as Kids is Karmic. The Universe doesn’t just Dump it on us cuz we’re Vulnerable. Except for our Resistance to it, the Universe is actually Benevolent and Generous. So, not wanting to Analyze or Attach more Energy to it, I’ll make a Diorama of a Child whose Real Self is Welcomed into their Birth Family, put it in a Helium Balloon (the Child has a Helium-Breathing Mutation), and Set It Free. That should be enough of a First Action for me to do my part in Energizing the Magnetic Grand Sextile. Wish me Ganesha’s Blessing of Good Luck!
  • 1 Grand Unx contains all of the above within it, so it’s pretty Monumental. The overall interpretation is that Everything Works Together. It’s kind of a Do-It-All Configuration. If we’re getting close to a Grand Unx, there’s No Shame in seeking out unknown asteroids to complete it. If the new ‘roid has some Connection to the theme we Work with (Ganesha is certainly totally Relevant to any Ascension theme), all the better. If it seems remote, that’s cool too, because it can point to what sort of Energy we need to Consciously add to the mix in order to complete the recipe and make Everything Work Together. We can also use Degree Readings for that Purpose.

Lets add a Helper Stone to this Endeavor. The Guilt examples have been my own, but the Chiron-Nemesis is there in the Eclipse-Ganesa Station chart, Prominently, for All of Us. If you have any natal planets in the middle third of Aries (I have several, including Nemesis itself), it’ll be ringing your doorbell too.

According to the book I most Trust for interpreting Crystals and Minerals (because my Personal Experience has always Validates it), Collen Marquist and Jack Frasl’s Crystalline Communion 2000, p.58, “Emerald stimulates courage to embody Light as a beacon rather than bleed from the heart endlessly for the trials and needs of others. Emerald empowers the knowledge of when to walk away and when to stay and teach others through example or resonance. Emerald improves all physical heart functions, as well as emotional functions of love and kindness to others. It calms the heart and relieves guilt.”

Sounds like it will be useful for the Hylonome Angles as well. Emerald, especially when paired with Gold, Facilitates Ego Death, so it can be Unsettling to wear the two together for long periods. Too much Ego Death can become a Setback in our Evolution, unless it’s Supported by the “Stars” (ie, when we don’t have other Options!), as it has been lately…

Emerald is a “Beryl,” or Beryllium Aluminum Cyclosilicate, or Ring Silicate. Beryllium carries Serpent or Kundalini Energy, so all of the Beryls are Healing Stones. Beryllium itself is highly Toxic. Among the Transparent Beryls, green ones are named Emerald, bluish ones Aquamarine, clear Goshenite, pink Morganite, yellow and line green Heliodor, and red and golden ones just Red Beryl and Golden Beryl. Opaque Beryls, no less Brave as Healers, are called Common Beryl. I’ll add my favorite Crystal and Rock books the the Bibliography soon.

Phew!

October 6, 2022

Feels too good to be true (which may mean it ain’t), but astrologically anyway, “the coast is clear” for once! 

The Moon is In-Bounds (Panic not so much) till 10:49 am 13 October 2022 (6:49 pm BST 13 Oct, 3:49 am AEST 14 Oct).

The next Stationary planet (Strong Ambient Energy) isn’t till 14 October, though astroevents tend to fill any empty Time-Space, so we could Encounter that sooner.  It’s about Self-Confidence Issues, including Self-Doubt,1 so we want to Intend (any other PIAVA will do fine as well) to be Confident in our Ability to Notice our Self-Doubt if does arise, and be Loving with it.  If we said to ourself, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re feeling Self-Doubt, aren’t you” (followed by Changing the Subject of course) it would be delicious, as it would not only take Our Identity out of Doubt, it would leave us Identifying with Compassion.  Practice that a couple times, and you may never Doubt yourself again!  If that sounds Dangerous, make sure to be Loving with your Doubt about it!

And my own Self-Doubt is Up already!! Thank the Goddess I know it’s coming, or I’d be Believing it!

We do have a couple of Sign Changes, which aren’t usually Disruptive, though they can Shift the General Ambient Energy a bit.

On 8 October, the Energy of Mary Magdalene 2 moves from Sagittarius (Let It Go! ) to Capricorn (Just Fix It! ). From The Seven Sacred Flames (pp166-7), compiled by Aurelia Louise Jones…

“It is extremely important for this Truth to be revealed now, that Mary Magdalene was a high initiate and priestess of the Sacred Fire during her lifetime with Jesus… She was unfairly discriminated against by the early ‘fathers of the [self-proclaimed “Christian”] Church’ in their attempt to… maintain control over what they feared the most, the energies of the ‘Divine Mother,’ that Mary Magdalene represented at the time, along with Mother Mary, the mother of Jesus. Both were very high initiates of the Temple of Isis and had the required attainment to hold that energy while Jesus was performing his Sacred Mission. It is time for hu[per]ity to open their hearts to the loving energies of Mary Magdalene, seeing her for who she really is and forgetting the lies maliciously invented against her.”

…(which we’ve added to the Bibliography). Her Energy has been hanging out in Sagittarius helping us Let Go Of all this Karma off and on since December 2021, She’ll be in Capricorn till January. She dipped her toe into Capricorn earlier this year from April till June. She should now be Open to Petitions to help with Rebuilding projects, particularly those aimed at Collaborative Teamwork.

Then we do have a Full Moon 1:58 pm PDT 9 October, in 17 Aries,3 but it’s a Grand Unx, meaning that there’s somebody near 17 Degrees of every Sign, each planet one Sign from the planet in the next and the previous Signs.4 That makes the next few weeks an Ideal time for Letting Go of Self-Sabotaging Habits, especially…

  • Where The Most Important Thing is to Heal your Codependence in Relationships where your primary Strategy for Improvement has been Hope.5 As they say, Hope is Necessary, but it’s not the most Effective Strategy for Resolving a Problem. If we’re in this position, it may be because we haven’t Realized that the only person we can Change is Us. Our odds of succeeding at Waiting and Hoping for someone else to Change are close to nil. We’ll probably have to Make Our Own Needs Clearly Known, or Recognize that Our Needs Are Being Ignored, or both. And we’ll probably have to make a Fearless and Searching Inventory of what we are Gaining from the Relationship, so we can Weigh it against the Loss of Self that Results from Not Being Able to Live Our Truth.
  • This is by no means Easy, and it we aren’t Fully Aware of our own Needs it will be a very Clumsy process. This is not the kind of Change anyone makes without a great deal of Practice, but the whole process is in many ways a prerequisite for Enlightenment or Ascension. In order to be True to Our Soul Self, we will have to Give Up most of the Compromises we’ve made so we could Survive in a Patriarchic World. Will our Self-Reliant 5D Community Magically Appear just as we’re Ready to replace our old 3D one? We may need our Intermittent Fasting practice more than we Imagined.

This is only one of our dozen Unx Opportunities. For instance, The Most Important One Is Our Need to Take Full Ownership of Our Historical Abuse.6 We can talk more about these dozen in another port.

For now, it’s also Important to point out that in a Grand Unx there are no T-Squares, only Grand Crosses. A T-Square (Major Challenge and SuperPower) is two planets on almost Exactly Opposite sides of the Zodiac, with a third planet halfway between them. A Grand Cross (a Series of Hassles that Complement One Another if We’re Patient with Them) is four planets more or less equally spaced around the Zodiac.

For instance, where the Most Important Thing Is to Heal Our Codependence with Hope (see note 5), the Grand Cross includes a Discussion between this Healing Codependence and the Empirical Truth about the Boundaries our Sovereignty prefers to Set.7 This Discussion is Confusingly Mixed with a second Debate between Our Emotional Discouragement and an Ego Death around our Trust in our Values.8

More Doors to Open here, in future posts.

1 Station of dwarf planet Chariklo (Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt ) 1:42 am PDT 14 October 2022, in 5 Aquarius (Surrender to Merging the Chthonic with the Cosmic – which is exactly what Aluna Joy predicted for the fifth phase of the Core Ascension Portal that ended yesterday!). That’s 9:42 am BST and 6:42 pm AEST.

2 Asteroid Magdalena enters the first Degree of Capricorn (Tradition of one’s own) 4:03 pm PDT 8 October, which is 12:03 am BST and 9:03 am AEST, both 9 October.

3 17 Aries is Living Outside of Culture but Open to Spirit. 1:58 pm PDT 9 October is 9:58 pm BST 9 October and 6:58 am AEST 10 October.

4 Which defines the Unx, or 30° Angle, which is the 12th Harmonic (360°/12=30°), which corresponds to the 12th Major Arcana in Tarot, the Hanged Man, or Pattern-Breaker. He doesn’t Hang by his Neck or Fingernails, but by his Heels, in order to Get a New Perspective on Things, the Better to Change them.

5 Asteroid Panacea Out of Bounds (Profound Healing) in 15 Capricorn (Searching for a Way to Avoid Claiming Profound Power, and finding none, needing the timing, willingness, and discernment to Claim Openly the Power that is Dangerous but undeniably yours) Merged with (Conjunct) dwarf planet Hylonome (Codependence) in 20 Capricorn (Staying Committed to Clearing the Present when the Future is so Compelling), Unx to both Pandora Out of Bounds (Exaggerated Hope) in 15 Sagittarius (Adept with Apocalypse Once We Accept It ) and Saturn (The Most Important Thing) in 19 Aquarius (Half Observer but Half Participant in the Apocalypse, thus able to See Alternatives).

6 Saturn (The Most Important Thing) in 17 Aquarius (Maintaining Tradition) Unx to both Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) in 15 Pisces (“Stunningly endowed with whatever it takes to reveal Spirit in action” ) and Panacea-Hylonome in Capricorn (see prior note). We need to Leap at every Opportunity to Own our Abuse and Privilege while Nessus is in 15 Pisces. It’s been there since 14 September and will stay there till 24 October. It was there earlier from 25 February till 23 March 2022. Considering those dates, it’s obvious that Our Victimhood about Putin’s Invasion of Ukraine (and about other elements of Climate Change et al ) is the place to start. This deserves its own post. It will be there again between 31 December 2022 and 6 February 2023.

7 Panacea-Hylonome (see note 5) Opposes the Stellium (Group of 3 or more planets) of asteroids Veritas (Truth of the Mind) in 18 Cancer (Obsessed with Polarity Karma and Our Shadow till We Finally Break Through to See the Dualism as a Game) and Pallas (Boundaries) in 15 Cancer, home of the Major Star Sirius (Brilliance at Natural Community), and Black Moon Lilith (Self-Sovereignty) in 20 Cancer (Coming into Enlightenment ).

8 Moon (Instincts) in 17 Aries (Living Outside of Culture but Open to Spirit) Merged with (Conjunct) Chiron (Despair and Miracles) in 15 Aries, home of the Major Star Alpheratz in Andromeda (Freedom of Action and the Need to Be Present with Oneself ) Opposite the Stellium of the Sun (Our Essence) in 17 Libra (Sensitivity Covered by Self-Defeating Self-Obsession), the asteroids Requiem (Ego Death) in 19 Libra (Repeated Impulsive Actions that Unexpectedly Break Through Ossified Karma) and Eurydike (Trust ) in 18 Libra (Compulsive Control Till Realizing that it’s a Dead End and Finding a Way to Sit Still with Anxiety), and Venus (Our Values) in 14 Libra (Giving Up Identification with the Surficial and Moving Inside).

Pattern-Busting Full Moon

August 11, 2022

Margery asks if we could show a picture of the 6:36 pm PDT 11 August 2022 Full Moon chart, which we could call a Ball-of-Yarn configuration, as it would keep a Cat occupied till nap time. We actually call it a Grand Unx – an “unx” is one twelfth of something, and a “grand” fills the Zodiac, so a Grand Unx is twelve planets equally spaced around the Astroloop. Yes, we could always get one of these if we use enough asteroids, and we use quite a few, but it’s been quite a while since we’ve seen one, so it’s not as facile as it seems. The main feature is twelve Unx Angles, each of which indicates Pattern-Breaking, so it’s a chart worth celebrating, especially as these Heavy Energies that so many people are reporting are Lighting Up everything in our Karma that we haven’t Cleared yet.

Just a few Examples…

  • Karma is dead; it died with Linear Time ten years ago. But we’re all still clinging to its corpse. Whenever a polyp of Karma breaks off and falls away, we Feel Weird, we don’t know what’s happening, and our name isn’t even Mr. Jones. We reach out for the familiar, to Anchor ourself. What’s familiar? Our Karma! So we Embrace those old Comfortable Patterns enthusiastically, as if they were our favorite snacks! But Looky Here! That so-very-Intense Exaggerated Karma Frosted with the Emotions We’d Rather Die than Feel (asteroid Karma Out of Bounds on the South Node) is Unx to (one Sign from) New Beginnings (asteroid Klotho)! So without even trying, we can Break this Pattern of Grasping our Dead Karma – all we need to do is Announce our Intention to Let Our Dead Karma Go like a Hot Potato Instead!
  • But wait! We’ve all Wrapped our Identity around our Karma – it’s inevitable. Our Karma is Who We Are, so no matter how nasty it is, we’re Ego-Attached to it. If we haven’t yet caught ourself Bragging about our Karma, we need to start Listening to what we’re saying! We can Intend to Let It Go, but what about the Ego Death – those aren’t Fun! What’s on the other side of Karma-South Node? Asteroid Narcissus (Overfocus on our Identity)! So without even trying, we can Break this Pattern of Ego-Identifying with our Karma – all we need to do is Announce our Intention to Experience our Ego Deaths Lovingly and Gently so We Can Be Excited about the Glorious Freedom we’ll Enjoy once we do!
  • But Hold On! What about our Abuse Karma and all of the Unconscious Limitations that we use to Protect ourself from those Memories (Nessus-Vesta-Heracles) that we’ve buried so deep in the Dungeon that we don’t even know they happened? Well, Trusting our Instincts Unquestioningly (Saturn-Moon) Unxes that Stellium (Nessus-Vesta-Heracles), so without even trying, we can Break this Pattern of Being Triggered for no apparent reason – all we need to do is Vow from now on to Act on our Instincts Immediately, without Questioning them and without ever Explaining them, no matter how Weird we think it’ll look to others.
  • But Shit, when I’m Triggered I’m usually Feeling Depressed and Powerless, and my Instincts are nowhere in sight! Often I Feel Depressed and Powerless and I don’t even know when or how I was Triggered! I usually think it’s “just me” that’s Depressing and Powerless. But on the other side of Nessus-Vesta-Heracles, it’s Unx to Despair and Miracles (Chiron). Well, we know how to Poor Sweetheart ourself out of Despair and Create Miracles, but when we’re Depressed and Powerless, we’re Regressed to whatever Bummers we’re Unconsciously Reliving. When we Regress, we Forget everything we’ve Learned since those Repressed Bummers happened! So without even trying, we can Break this Pattern of Forgetting What We Know – all we need to do is Vow from now on that when we’re Regressed we’ll Remember All of the Tools We’ve Learned to Restore our Current-Life Identity, like Poor-Sweethearting!

No Wonder the Energies Feel Heavy!! Can you Imagine how the other eight Unxes might play out?

Apart from the Glories of the Grand Unx, the Big Deal about this Full Moon is that it “Squares the Nodes.” What does that mean?

  • Well, the Nodal Axis – South Node to North Node – is the most important Axis in a chart, as it indicates the Source, Direction, and Destination of “the Native” (the person or event for which the chart is drawn). In this Full Moon, the Source is a Karmic Hellhole, the Destination is Reunion of Day-to-Day Identity with Soul, and the Direction is from Emotional Overload to Stability.1
  • At any Full Moon, our Inner Male and our Inner Female are Face-to-Face, where as much as they are able, they can be Honest about the Quality of their Union. In Carl Jung’s approach to Psychology, which we applaud, the Perfection of this Union is more or less equivalent to Enlightenment, thus a Key Ingredient of our 5D Endeavors.
  • The “Square” means that these two Critically Important Axes sit at Right Angles to one another, meaning in applied mathematics that they are Independent – they do not Influence one another under the radar. So our Purpose (Nodal Axis) and our Integrity (Inner Harmony) are a priori Unrelated, and each can Operate and Negotiate without Unconsciously Compromising themself.

Notice how different this is than the conventional astrological interpretation of a Square – as a Crisis. In a Left-Brain Patriarchal Culture, the very idea of Surrendering Power to the Female is Anathema. In this blog we’ve been inching toward interpreting Squares as Superpowers rather than Challenges. We don’t mean that the Challenges go away. In the previous post we averred that “If We Aren’t Ready to Receive What We’re Asking For, the Universe Will Show Us Examples of Why We Aren’t.” If we Experience our Squares as Superpowers, we’re Ready to Receive What We Want. If we Experience them as Challenges, the Universe is Clarifying for us Exactly what we still need to Let Go Of in order to Support Ourself without Unconscious Compromise, aka without Self-Sabotage.

The Loud and Clear Message in this particular Full Moon is that The Most Important Thing is to Trust our Instincts.2 Jung used to say that people who emphasized Thinking were not Rational, because they weren’t in touch with their Values (which are accessed through Emotion). In an Ideal Lifetime, our Inner Female calls the shots (assuming She’s in touch with Her Feelings), and our Inner Male follows Her lead. That’s Inner Female and Inner Male – any Relationship between actual Living People needs relative Equality in both Vision and Action, as each person will contribute Vision from their own Inner Female, and each person will contribute Action from their own Inner Male.

A Grand Unx is so incredibly rich that we’ve only begun to scratch the surface. Full Moon Energies are usually Prominent for several weeks afterward, so we have time, and we’ll Dive Deeper in the next post.

  • 1 Source = South Node, Merged with asteroid Karma Out of Bounds (Exaggerated ), Destination = North Node, Merged with Uranus (Soul ), Direction = Scorpio (Fearless Searching) to Taurus (Grounded Materiality).
  • 2 Moon (Instincts) Conjunct Saturn (The Most Important Thing).

Full House Lunar Eclipse

July 3, 2020

Finally, in the 10pm PDT 4 July 2020 Full Moon Penumbral Lunar Eclipse in 14 Capricorn – and the Emphasis we Experience on Sustainability we’ll Feel till at least 9pm PDT 6 July (dwarf planet Ceres [Sustainability and Sustenance] Stationary in 13 Pisces) – we find an astroConfiguration we have to call a Full House, though it’s really a “Grand Unx,” an Unx being the Angle created when two planets are one sign apart, the word Unx meaning one twelfth.  And “Grand” meaning they dance all the way ’round the Mulberry bush…

Ain’t she gorgeous?  Downright Kaleidoscopic.

Speaking of Lucy, I had no idea this had happened…

For those of us who Strive (Wer immer Strebend…, as Goethe put it) for Beginner’s Mind and 5D, this is the Ideal chart, because the Unx is about Pattern-BreakingKarma = Inertia = Patterns, ergo, Letting Go of Karma = Pattern-Breaking = the Unx And it’s not about something we have to do, it’s something we just have to Let HappenIts so Easy!

Which is actually the hard part!  We’re so Habituated to our Karma that when it threatens to Break, we Leap to Save It!  We Expect it, and anything Different Feels Unnatural.  Much of the time, our Unconscious Limitations are running our Show, and we don’t even Realize that Anything Else is Possible!  We Believe that it’s Just the Way It Is.  The rest of the time we Actively Defend our Karma.  What could possibly go wrong?  Well, now’s our Chance!  We have the Goddess on our Side here!

I guess we should start with the Moon (our Instincts), since She’s the Star of the Show.  She’s Merged with (Conjunct) Her Codependence (dwarf planet Hylonome [Self-Sovereignty]) but She’s getting Suspicious [asteroid Veritas [Analytical Truth]) that Her Codependence isn’t really Serving Her.  Especially since Her Heart’s Truth (asteroid Aletheia) and Her Boss’s Boss’s Boss (the Great Attractor [A Heavy Authority that our Galaxy Follows, which is in turn A Heavy Authority that our Sun Follows]) are both jawing at Her (Moon-Hylonome-Veritas Unx to both Aletheia and the Great Attractor).

The Co-Star of the Show, Sustainability (Stationary Ceres), like everyone else in the chart, has two sets of Patterns that are up for Reverting (two Unxes).  The fastest way to get to Sustainability is to move toward Sustenance by Removing the Unnecessary, but that word has some baggage because the Condor people (the Indigenous People in John Perkins’s Touching the Jaguar pp.98-100), who have the Wisdom to save us from Self-Genocide, have had their Attunement to the Earth mislabeled as “Subsistence,” as if it’s a lower level of Existence.  Sustenance also sounds like “barely Existing.”  So we’ll choose the currently PC term Resilience instead.

Before we get to the Sustainability-and-Resilience Unxes though, we have to deal with Abuse and Privilege (Stationary Ceres Conjunct dwarf planet Nessus [Abuse and Privilege]).  As Victims of Abuse, we always need to find a way to make our Response Sustainable – Let Go of Cause and Blame, own our Anger as the Pure Motivating Emotion that it is, Avoid Projecting it into places where it will inhibit What We Want, and Strive for Neutrality.  Neutrality doesn’t mean Abandoning our Passion.  It means being able to direct our Passion in ways, and into the places, where it will Manifest What We Want.  We’re certainly being Asked, by the immense Surge in Awareness about Racism, to make our Privilege Resilient.  We do that by Removing the Unnecessary and redefining Privilege from Wealth and Power to AbundanceHaving Enough to Share.

Bear in mind that not everyone Strives for Beginner’s Mind and 5D and a Collaborative World.  Many People still Strive for Wealth and Power in a Competitive World.  Make the Choice to Leave those People Behind in 3D.  3D is a lower level of Existence, and it’s Addictive.  Give them the Choice, but don’t stay in 3D to protect them from their Karmic Work.

One of Sustainability’s Unxes is to Truth of the Heart (Aletheia).  Most of us have a quiver full of Programmed Skills for Blocking the Heart’s Truth when it Conflicts with the Mind’s Logic, and worse, with our Limiting Beliefs and our Programming.  The Door is Open for Letting Go of some of those Habitual Skills and Welcoming the Unknown as a Gateway to Peace and Fulfillment.

Sustainability’s other Unx is to Despair and Miracles (Chiron).  We need to make Discouragement a Red Flag for us, and as soon as we see it waving, we need to give ourself an Opportunity to Explore what we’re Feeling without Contaminating it with what we’re Thinking about What we’re Feeling, while knowing full well that Cause and Blame are Thoughts, not Emotions.  Wouldn’t hurt to set a timer, so we wouldn’t “Trip Out so far that we never get back to know that we left,” aka Get Lost in the maze that always Spawns when we Allow Emotion and Thought to Confuse one another.  After this exercise, we need to Poor-Sweetheart ourself, or Tap it Out and PIAVA What We Want.

Uranus (Soul) has its own two Unxes, with Despair and Miracles (Chiron) and with Respect for All Things (Hopi).  Can you see how we’ve Examined the Moon and Ceres, and take your own stab at doing the same for Uranus?  I don’t expect yours and mine to look the same (Vive le Différence), because we’re Different People with Different natal charts, Different Karmic Patterns, Different Languaging, Different Cultural and Ancestral Histories and Herstories, and Different Life Experiences, at the very least.  But as I get time I’ll go on around the loop, so you can see how our Interpretations agree and differ.  Not to Compare Content, though Exploring Differences in Content can be eye-opening.  But to see if we’re using the same Method, and if we’re Happy with the Result.  You might end up using a Method that works better for you – if so I’d love to hear about it!

Then do the same for Sun-Vesta (Letting Go of Limiting Beliefs), Orcus (Breaking Obsolete Patterns), and Poseidon.  Oops, you caught me cheating.  I plugged a new asteroid into what would otherwise have been a Vacancy.  I plugged it in thinking it was just another spelling for Neptune.  But I think, like Veritas and Aletheia it’s not just that.  I’ll Explore Poseidon more, to see how it differs from Neptune.

Note that the Unx is in the same Angle family as the Quincunx – it’s about Curiosity.  So don’t hesitate to Suffix your Interpretations with “…or something like that.”  And do the same with mine as you’re reading them.

The Rose above the Sky

May 9, 2017

Let’s look a little more at that Grand Quintile.  Here’s one without all of the other Action in its chart…

It’s a Pentagram, traditional symbol of Magic.  It’s actually pointing down, which sometimes implies Black Magic.  But as we said in the previous post, the whole diagram will turn upside down in twelve hours, so there’s little meaningfully permanent about the pointing.  If there’s anything to the Black part, it’s bad luck or evil intent for the West Coast of the US, as the chart is even rotated for other locations at the same time.

The Full Moon occurs around 3pm PDT, which is the equivalent of 2pm PST.  Since Hawaii is two hours earlier than Pacific Time, the Sun will be close to directly overhead in Hawaii – and the Pentagram will be pointing straight up.

The classic symbol of five-symmetry is the Rose Family, which includes this Apple (a future Fuji), blooming as we speak…

The Rose and Pentagram have always been associated with Venus and the Heart, because the Zodiacal locations of the Heliacal Rising of Venus over eight years plot a perfect Hexagram.  The “Heliacal Rising” of a planet or Star occurs when it first becomes visible again after being hidden by being too close to the Sun.  The ancients measured the seasons of the year by keeping track of the Heliacal Rising of various Stars.

I read today that the process of Learning floods the brain with a particular protein, and that this protein confuses the brain’s reward center, disrupting Addictions.  The same can apply to Archetypes, since our Karmic or Childhood Programming Unconsciously expects a positive reward when we’re Obedience to an Archetype we’re Entranced to.  Liberation from an Archetype is by far the most important type of Learning, since it’s Life-Changing.  And Entrancing someone to a Archetype, such as Nationalism, would be a good case of Black Magic.

Let’s isolate the Grand Decile.  A Decile Angle is one tenth of the Zodiacal Loop, so a Grand Decile has ten planets equally spaced ’round the Circle…

If that reminds you of a Rose it’s no coincidence; with five-symmetry the double Rose has five petals in each layer.  Fortune, the Tenth Harmonic, is related to Learning mostly through Liberation from Archetypes, as Liberation allows us to respond Neutrally to circumstances and Witness Reality more clearly.  Left-brain Learning, which involves only the accumulation of Information and not Liberation, also clogs the brain’s reward center – Jung always said that people whose primary approach to Life is through Thinking, are irrational, because not being in touch with their Heart, they Act according to their thoughts rather than their Values.

There is a reason why astrology considers the Fifth Harmonic a “Minor” Angle, aside from the fact that you can’t instantly spot them because they share the same Degree of their respective Signs, as you can with “Major” Angles.  It’s much more difficult to gain Power Over someone who runs their Life from their Heart rather than their “Head.”  Thinking is usually associated with the Head because Left-Brain Mythology attributes thought to the brain.  In Energy Reality, thinking is assigned to the Third Chakra, the Solar Plexus, not the brain.

In order to Power-Over a “Head”-centered person, all we need to do is match their Archetypal Programming with our Propaganda or Rhetoric.  To Power-With a Heart-centered person, we need to demonstrate that we share their Values.  We may be able to direct our Propaganda to their Values, but a Heart-centered person is much more likely to be in touch with their Intuition and Instincts, which would allow them to know our Intentions.

The more we uses our Quintiles to Break Free of our Archetypes, the more directly we Witness Reality.  When we’re Entranced by an Archetype, that’s all we see – the rest of the Universe is projected onto the outer screen of the Archetype.  The more Archetypes entangle us, the less we see of what goes on behind the curtain.  It’s the greater detection of Reality which allows the Tenth Harmonic to represent Manifestation – which is more difficult when we can’t see the levers and pulleys and cobwebs and Energies that connect the elements of hardcopy Reality.

Crystals do not exhibit five-symmetry, but there are several Powerful Stones named after the Rose, such as this Rose Quartz, a Stone representing the Heart…

Another “Minor” Angle that we use is the Quincunx, which connects two planets that are five Signs apart, or five twelfths of the way ’round the Loop.  The Fifth Harmonic is Learning, and the Twelfth Harmonic Pattern-Breaking, and the Quincunx combines the two – into Curiosity.  This is the source of Power in the Yin Gate – which, with it’s four Quincunxes arranged in two adjacent Xs, introduces us to Paradox or Non-Dual thinking.

And while the Grand Quintile, if used properly, can lead us to Archetype-Busting, the “Grand Unx” (an “Unx” is one twelfth of something), with twelve planets equally spaced around the Zodiac, will almost certainly Bust up some Archetypes and other Addictions.  Here’s a look at the 16 May chart, when the Moon and the Nodes add the final two aligned Oppositions to the four in our Gods and Goddesses Full Moon chart (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/05/07/gods-and-goddesses-full-moon/) to complete a loose Grand Unx…

We’ve drawn in the Unxes and Quincunxes in light green.  From the Perspective of traditional astrology, there’s a problem with this chart.  The twelve positions vary from 22 to 30 Degrees; that’s eight Degrees of Sensitivity, a span that traditional Astrology would only allow for Major Angles in birth charts.  Even in birth charts, the maximum Sensitivity permitted for Minor Angles is three Degrees.

Well, recall that many times we’ve said that Permanent Curiosity (as in Awe and Wonder rather than “Gotta Figure It Out”) is akin to Love because both eschew Judgment.  If we can break our Addiction to Figuring It Out, the Quincunx actually leads us to this space of Non-Judgment, aka Neutrality, aka Enlightenment, aka Ascension.  Maybe we should call it “Unconditional” Curiosity, to parallel Unconditional Love.  In a Relationship, Love dies when Curiosity is replaced by Certainty and Judgment.

So in our Perspective, there’s nothing Minor about a Quincunx – it’s one of the more Major Angles on Reality.  We can say the same for the the Archetype-Busting Quintile and Unx, and for that matter the Septile.  The Septile (Seventh Harmonic) is about Timing – not wasting our Energy when the moment is not ripe, and Acting Decisively when it is – like France’s own new “JFK” apparently has.  We hope he fares better than JFK did.  Well, it turns out that Timing is critical in everything, including Curiosity and Unconditional Love.  It’s Timing that resolves the unsettling apparent Conflicts between Unconditional Love of Other and Unconditional Love of Self.

So we don’t argue that this chart may not be fully descriptive of the Present Moment come 16 May.  But if the Unx and Quincunx are Major Angles, as we aver, then we regard the chart as fully applicable to Projects begun under its watch, including the Rebirths that have been scheduled for us.

 

Hopi New Moon

February 7, 2016

The 8 February New Moon Opposes our new favorite asteroid Hopi, and continues for the next several weeks the Energy we talked about in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/02/04/my-new-favorite-roid/ – namely “What all this means, is that any projects we started last week, or start in February, will fly like a rocket!  Full of Motivation, full of Love, full of Ease and Grace, and full of natural Effortless Alignment.

I still remember 1980 – when Hopi was Discovered – vividly; the Hopi Discovery chart was the chart we all lived under in June 1980.  My Life was totally transformed.  I did things that still amaze me, far exceeding my normal Limits.  I was for more Optimistic, Proactive, Extroverted, Willing to take big Risks, Curious, and Innovative than before or since.  I left a steady job at a prestigious University, and started the business that still today allows me the free time to provide this Seva to anyone willing to read it.

In 1980 it was not about overcoming Fear; it was about Feeling Safe enough to break free of traditional Limits Effortlessly.  Sedna is still Stationary, so we may have an additional opportunity here to Love our Karmic Fear-Limits into becoming our greatest Allies, adding a booster to our rocket.  This isn’t about Ego, it’s about Fun.  Exploring new Territory, Doing things you’ve never done, making yourself Available and Allowing yourself to be Open to whatever Shows Up.  

It may not provide the Recognition and External Validation we’ve been craving all of our Lives because that Unconditional Love Birthright of ours was Denied to us as infants.  But it’s not about Braving Up and Faking it till we Make it, either.  It’s about Feeling Safe enough that we can put ourselves out there in public without needing the External Validation, because we’re just Exploring. Angels Fly because they take themselves Lightly.

The New Moon Grand Sextile spans 15-20 Degrees of the Yang (Air and Fire) Signs – not quite close enough to make it Feel like we’ve arrived in “Real” Time Heaven, but plenty close to light a big Fire under any projects (or people) born under it.  And of course any New Moon chart is the template for the four weeks that follow it.  Conjunctions expand the hot zone to 25 or so degrees.  The Grand Sextile includes…

  • The New Moon at 20 Aquarius, “A large white Dove bearing a message” – which in itself is pretty hot.
  • Asteroid Hopi at 16 of Leo, joined again by asteroids Arachne at 19, and Pandora and Sappho at 21 Leo.
  • Saturn at 15 Sagittarius.  Saturn is also the focus of a T-Square across the Nodal Opposition, which we’ll talk about soon.  If we stretch we can include dwarf planet Ixion at 26 Sagittarius, which we may as well do, to honor their upcoming Initiation.  Ixion Initiating Saturn after all implies that The Most Important Thing is Embracing our Abandoned Genius.  It occurs on the Ides of next February at 26 Sagittarius, “A flag bearer in a battle.”  We’re in the dregs of the current Cycle, Initiated 1 November 1984 at 18 Scorpio, “A path through woods brilliant with multicolored splendor.
  • Dwarf planet Chaos at 19 Gemini.  Chaos implies Unlimited Potential, not Disorder, though of course it may appear to be Disorder to the Eye that is blind to the Potential.  Chaos is also the focus of a Diamond Star, but we’ll talk about that in a minute.
  • Vesta-Uranus (recently Initiated) at 18-19 Aries, stretching to 23 Aries if we include the impending Eris-Uranus Initiation, which occurs in early June 2016 at 24 Aries, “Blown inward by the Wind, the curtains of an open window take the shape of a Cornucopia.”  Eris Initiating Uranus means that we will no longer be able to Deny the Soul’s impulse.  The current Eris-Uranus Cycle, in its dotage, Initiated in April 1927 at 2 Aries, “A Comedian reveals Human Nature.” 
  • Lilith at 19 Libra, streching to 25 Libra if we include Haumea.  The impending Haumea-Lilith Initiation occurs March 28 at 24 Libra, “A Butterfly with a third wing on its left side.

The Grand Cross in the Hopi New Moon chart is Mutable, connecting the Saturn-Chaos Sagittarius-Gemini Opposition with the Nodal Opposition (with Jupiter on the North Node and Chiron on the South Node) at 20-24 of Virgo-Pisces.  This is the core of the chart, and implies that The Most Important Thing here is to Pay Attention to the Unlimited Potential available, as it will Expand us into our Deepest Desires and Allow us to Witness and Lovingly Embrace our former Limits, thereby Recovering the Hidden Skills which are necessary for us to Complete our Mission in the Lifetime.  This is worth repeating…

The core of the Hopi New Moon chart is that The Most Important Thing here is to Pay Attention to the Unlimited Potential available, as it will Transform and Expand us into our Deepest Desires and Allow us to Witness and Lovingly Embrace our former Limits, thereby Recovering the Hidden Skills which are necessary for us to Complete our Mission in the Lifetime.  In other words, Shoot for the Moon!

This introduces two other impending Initiations – North Node-Jupiter and Chiron-South Node.  The South Node crosses Chiron on 18 March at 22 Pisces, “A prophet carry tablets of the New Law is walking down the slopes of Mount Sinai.”  That’s pretty heavy.  Jupiter crosses the North Node on 24 June at 17 Virgo, “A Volcanic eruption,” which Rudhyar explicates as “The explosive energy of long-repressed contents of the [Un]conscious.”  

Rudhyar says [Sub], but we know better, though I’m sure for some folks [Sub] will be more appropriate.  As a reminder, the Subconscious is Taurean Freud’s Dungeon where  we’ve stuffed all manner of disgusting krap, while the Unconscious is Leonine Jung’s Treasury where the Dragon guards the Jewels that will complete our Wholeness – what we call our Hidden Skills, hard-won Talents from “previous” Lives that we Deny because they’re tied to our Held or Frozen Emotions, aka our South Node.  Alternately, you could see it as the collapse of the Veil that separates us from complementary Parallel Lives.

With thanks to a reader for the introduction, here’s an interesting commentary on “long-repressed Unconscious contents,” from Genia Haddon’s Body Metaphors (p.18)…

“Where a quadrant [Masculine Yang, Feminine Yin, Feminine Yang, or Masculine Yin] is largely undeveloped, repressed, or unconscious in its functioning, abrupt reversals between under- and over-energizing of that mode are likely.  This is because rejected aspects of human nature do not go away.  

“On the contrary, when banished from conscious inclusion, they continue to operate in the larger, nonconscious psyche, secretly gathering to themselves life energy (libido).  Periodically, this energy builds to the point of discharge, temporarily overwhelming the conscious personality with the rejected content, until it again falls into the background of the psyche.”

Having a Volcano, we have to ask where 2007 OR10 sits, since that’s its signature.  It’s still tightly Conjunct Nessus and Ceres (recall they co-Initiated on 4 February), and four Degrees away from Neptune (more recent and impending Initiations!) on one corner of a tight Asbolus T-Square, Opposite Orcus.  Which tells us that Our Hidden Skills will be accessible to our Intuition.  Also worth repeating…

Those very Hidden Skills will be accessible through our Intuition.  Trust it this month, even when it seems silly or stupid.  If it seems dangerous, Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade or Tap Out or Theta-Heal your trepidation, PIAVA complete Safety, and proceed cautiously.

Theta-Healing recommends itself, because after we close our eyes and roll them up, do our “God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that [our list of requests complete with all the adjectives and adverbs desired]” and our “Thank you, God/Goddess, It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done” then we can pause and add “Show me,” and we may or may not see a vision of Grace, or feel an Emotional snapshot of what else we need to add on the next round.  

For instance, we might Ask to “Let Go of All Inappropriate and non-Present-Moment Fear, Lovingly, Gently, Rapidly, and Completely, while staying Present for any Real dangers” and then we might be shown that some Appropriate Present-Moment Fear or Real danger remains.  Then we would have to go back in and Command that [What we Wanted] “be accomplished in Complete Safety” or the like, then see or feel what happens when we Ask, “Show me.”

A second indication reinforces the Availability of our Held Emotions and Hidden Skills – the Eris-Vesta Initiation on 18 February in 23 Aries, “A pregnant Woman in light summer dress,” implying that whatever’s still Hidden will be lightly covered!

In the New Moon chart a second would-be Yin Grand Sextile has only four Rays – Jupiter-North Node at 22-24 Virgo, Mars-Juno at 14-19 Scorpio, Pluto-Venus-Mercury at 17-24 Capricorn, and Chiron-South Node at 20-24 Pisces – though our Stationary Sedna sits at 25 Taurus, leaving only Cancer as a potential Vacancy.  This is the same span of Degrees as the full Grand Sextile, though the Sensitivity is not close enough to call it a Grand Unx.

A Grand Unx is twelve planets equally spaced around the Zodiac.

What is within Orb, in addition to the Grand Cross, are two Diamond Stars – Venus-Pluto, and Mars-Juno.  And three of the four corners (all but Saturn) of the Grand Cross are Diamond Stars.  We’ll get to these, and the Neptune Initiations, in our next installment.

Sustainable or Else

July 14, 2015

PlutoMinus5The Angel of Pluto, from five days away (NASA-JHUAPL-SWRI).

About half a day before the New Moon, and about a day after the New Horizons trolley sails within several thousand miles of Pluto, the Moon crosses Mercury and Mars, which closely Oppose Pluto.  Of course that’s about the time when NASA will first unveil some of the portraits that New Horizons snapped at close range.  So we’d expect that…

Pluto will have something very distinct and very adamant to say on July 15th.

Meanwhile, that New Moon!

I hope we all graduated from our Self-Love SATs with flying colors.

Because the New Moon falls right into the same Degrees!  Jupiter’s now in the 25th Degree of Leo, so it’s no longer within our usual 3 Degrees of Sensitivity to the other members of the would-be Grand Sextile.  But with the New Moon at 24 Cancer the focus of the current chart, we take three Degrees on either side, or 21-27 Degrees.  Which gives us nine out of twelve points on a Grand Unx.

The Unx, recall, is the Twelfth Harmonic, or the Angle between two planets that are one Sign apart.  The Grand Unx then is a planet in the same (or close to the same) Degree of all twelve Signs.  The Twelfth Harmonic is the Pattern-Breaker, or the Hanged Person; not hanging by the neck or fingernails, but hanging by the ankles and hence seeing the World through different Perspectives.

Last week’s Grand Sextile was ruled by the Station of Haumea – Rebirth, and the Vacancy – the warm and comfortable rug in the nursery; a Rebirth into Self-Love.  This week it’s Eris that’s Stationary, now within three Degrees from Uranus and now turning Retrograde to move back toward Uranus, and almost exactly Square to the New Moon.  Eris turns Direct on July 19.  This is one focus of the would-be Grand Unx…

A major theme this week will be the Revelation of Denial.  Don’t hide from it behind embarrassment or Shame.  Seek it out.  Use your Curiosity, Actively.  “I wonder what I’ve been Denying!?!?  I’ll wager if I open up to it Lovingly, and Ask for Grace, I can stop sabotaging myself and get on with my Dreams, eh?  Won’t that be Grand!”

And sure enough, there’s Chiron in the almost-Grand Unx.  That’s exactly what Chiron’s about, transcending Limiting Beliefs by Breaking up Patterns that have been sabotaging and discouraging us, and exposing us to the Miracles that lie on the other side of the Limiting-Belief curtain.

The other focus of the Grand Unx is the Ixion-Pholus-Quaoar Stellium in 22-27 Sagittarius.  It’s a major focus because it’s the outlier – the other eight points are one Sign apart, and the Stellium is two Signs distant on one side and three Signs distant on the other.  The eight adjacent points form a bowl or curved mirror, focusing everything back onto the outlier, like the focus of a Reflecting Telescope.

The Ixion-Pholus-Quaoar Stellium, all of which are Retrograde, says…

We are Required to Take Responsibility.  It’s no longer optional.  Our Survival depends on it.  No matter how many of our philosophical or moral or political or hedonistic precepts it violates, we have to take Responsibility.  It is now The Law, and it will be enforced by the Power of the Galaxy.

We didn’t notice, but Quaoar, which itself represents The Law-Giver, slipped past the Galactic Center on January 12 of this year.  After turning Retrograde, it crossed again on June 19.  It’s third and final crossing will be November 24.  Quaoar represents Natural Law, Law of the sort where violations don’t get you in trouble, they get you dead.  That’s just Quaoar by itself; now it has the Authority of the Galaxy behind it.

We intuit the theme of Sustainability because that’s the sort of Law that Quaoar gives.  Ceres (Sustainability), though, is the focus of a Mjolnir (Epiphany) across the Square from Lilith (PIAVA) to Chaos (Unlimited Potential).

We had our Can-Opener in January, and our Exposition in June.  By now we should have learned a good deal about what Unconscious contents are forcing themselves out into the Light.  We have until late November to allow those urges to permeate our Life.  It doesn’t matter if we’re Ashamed of them, or if they violate what we believe to be Sacred, or if they open a chasm between us and our Community.  We have no choice but to honor them, or they will rip us to shreds.  There is great Grace available to us here; take advantage of it, as it will last only till about July 26.

The Stellium makes a Grand Trine with Uranus-Eris and Jupiter, but Jupiter moves beyond three Degrees from Eris around the 26th, just as Uranus is Stationary, and Venus is turning Retrograde in the first Degree of Virgo.  The first Degree of Virgo is itself a Pattern-Breaker, though it usually feels more like an Ego-Buster.  Which is exactly what a Pattern-Breaker is, since it’s Ego that we have invested in our Limiting Beliefs.

We need to be practicing our Skill at recognizing Ego Death.  When it feels like “I am Dying,” shift your focus.  It’s “I am Dying,” as in “My Old, worn-out Ego is Dying.”  May it rest in Peace.  It’s served me well, getting me this far, but Lord Knows it’s tired out! 

Okay, it doesn’t feel like a Sunny day in the park, but that’s what Rebirth feels like.  I Loved my Old Ego, and it Loved me, and I’ll miss it.  We were best friends.  It’ll take a while to get used to this new Ego, and I won’t always know how to Act or Feel.  I’ll be Confused and clumsy.  I guess that’s what it’s like Learning anything new though. It’s okay to be embarrassed; we’re newbies.  I need to be my own best Cheerleader. 

“Hooray New Ego!  We’ve got some Learning Curve to get through here, but the Future is Wide Open, and we’re looking forward to Manifesting some great things that we’ve been Dreaming about for a long time.”  Set your Doingness aside; that’s your Old Ego.  No Stress allowed here; it’s Rest you want to pursue instead.  Sure, some folks pop up off the Birthing table and go right back to their CEO jobs the next day – and in the process Abandon their progeny – which here means Abandoning yourself. 

Let the Future come to you; if you strive to go after it, you can only do that under your Old Ego’s terms, and you’ll revert back to your Limiting Beliefs.  Use your PIAVAs instead

Confusion is the first stage of Growth – don’t try to overcome it or think your way out of it.  Celebrate it!  “Oh gosh, there’s Confusion!  Happy Day!  We’ve escaped our Birdcage and we’re flying free!” 

Which of course could mean the Cat isn’t far away – “Oh gosh, there’s Fear!  Happy Day!  We’re encountering unfamiliar turf and about to Break Through to New Heights – all we have to do is Breathe, and maybe Tap a bit, eh?” 

And maybe backpedal a little – Safety First!  We want to take Risks, that’s what Learning is about, but we don’t want to overextend ourself, because that will set us back.  We may want to PIAVA a Loving and Gentle Learning Experience, Growth, Rebirth, AND Safety.

Wait – is that Discouragement, or even Despair?  Where did that come from?  Oh yeah, all Losses must be Grieved, even the Loss of an Old worn-out Ego suit.  Hey, I remember!  I need to Empathize with my Despair – “You poor Sweetheart, you’re feeling down, aren’t you.  That’s okay, Honey, I won’t Abandon you, take as long as you need to Feel into that.” 

Don’t try to talk yourself out of what you’re Feeling; instead, step outside yourself, look back, and Witness what you’re really Feeling, but from outside of it.  Shift from “I am Discouraged” to “I feel Discouraged” – it’s a tiny semantic shift and a giant step for personal Growth. 

There are two of you occupying the same Body – the first You Feels Discouraged, and the second You Feels Loving Kindness toward the first You that’s in Despair.  There’s no attempt to Change what you’re Feeling, only a shift in your Perspective, a Loving Witness, a shift in your Assemblage Point, an instant Rebirth.

The Sky is the Limit here, as Chaos (Unlimited Potential, not Disorder) Opposes the Ixion-Pholus-Quaoar Stellium, and the Lilith-Chiron Opposition joins it for a Grand Cross.  The Stellium says, “This is the Law“;  Chaos says “Go for the Gold“; Lilith says “Let it Come to You, don’t chase it“; and Chiron says “Be the Witness.”  The Grand Cross says “There’s too much going on and too much at stake for us to get stuck on any one thing here; we have to Let Go and Let God!”

And don’t forget all that Grace, in the Grand Trine between the Stellium, Uranus-Eris, and Jupiter, in the Fire Signs – in Spirit.  The Grand Cross is in the Mutable signs – Mutable as in Mutation…

We’re Changing here, we all are.  All bets are off.  Look for any Expectations, and Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade them.  Cancel the Expectation, Neutralize the Vibration it Created, and Upgrade the Expector – Expectorate your Expectations.  All Expectations arise from your Old Limited Ego, whether they’re cynical or hopeful. 

Hopeful Expectations are Fantasies, and Fantasies are not PIAVAs.  Fantasies have Limitation at their core.  Otherwise we would have Manifested them all along.  You don’t know how the Future will unfold, because we haven’t Co-Created it yet.  Intentions and Desires, by all means, but Expectations are Manifestation killers.

Makemake (Manifestation) and Vesta (Belief) both meet the North Node (Mission), on the Cusp of Libra, in mid-September.  The Cusp of Libra is where we meet Other for the first time, or as if for the first time.  As we integrate the newly emerging formerly-Unconscious contents into our everyday Lives, we’ll begin to newly integrate them into our Relationships as well.

Without Curiosity there is no Love.  If your Relationships are based on Expectation, they’ll be mired in Judgment rather than Celebration and Freedom and Exploration.  Begin to watch for Expectation in your Relationships, and Expect your Expectations to be incomplete, if not downright incorrect.  “Aha, there’s Expectation!  I wonder what that would look like if I opened to Curiosity about what was really going on for them?”  Not Curious as in “I need to find an answer,” but Curious as in “Wow, that’s Awesome!  I wonder what I’ll discover next?”

The Grand Cross and the Grand Trine make up six of the nine points of the would-be Grand Unx.  The corner they share is the Stellium – another reason to consider it a major focus of the chart.  It would be the major focus were Eris not Stationary and about to make a once-in-a-century Initiation of Uranus, which will open a whole panoply of new Channels between us and our Soul.

The seventh point is the New Moon – which is itself a major Focus, as a New Moon is always a Rebirth.  The presence of the New Moon in the almost-Grand Unx is what calls it forth into our Attention.  And speaking of Rebirth, the eighth point is Haumea, the Stationary focus of last week’s almost-Grand Sextile.

The ninth point is Sedna – Actions taken out of Fear.  It’s well placed, the focus of a Yod from Haumea and the Stellium.  The Yod says,

“Be mindful of Fear, and don’t let it control your Actions.  It you’re Present with your Fear, Witness it, Empathize with yourself when you Feel it, and don’t try to think yourself out of it or make it Go Away, then you’ll find its source, and Clear it, and it will no longer Limit you.”

Sedna and the New Moon are the roots of the Diamond Star that’s focused on the Stellium and its T-Square with Chiron and Lilith – another reason to make the Stellium a major focus of the chart.

A final note – Responsibility is not Blame.  Blame looks at the Past and tries to attribute Cause.  Responsibility looks at the Future and tries to improve Outcomes.  They are totally different.  It’s very difficult to escape the concepts of Blame and Cause and Effect, because we’ve been trained from infancy to Believe that they’re the Operating Principles of Reality.  They aren’t.  They’re the Operating Principles of the Left Brain, and the Operating Principles of Immature Emotions.  Reality Operates on the Principle of “This just Is, and that’s that.”  If you can approach the World with Perennial Curiosity rather than Expectation, you’ll find it to be full of Surprise, Delight, and Awe, not Blame or Causality.
