The surface of Vesta, photographed by Dawn
Our previous Yin Gate finished up around 11pm PST November 28, when Ceres moved out of its Quincunx to the South Node. A little less than a day later, Vesta took its place Opposite Uranus, making a second Yin Gate! Quite fascinating. Whereas the previous Yin Gate was Powered by Ceres-Uranus, or
Get Serious about making your Yintegrity permanent!
as we called it, this one is Powered by Vesta-Uranus, or
If your Yintegrity doesn’t align with your notions of the Sacred, it’s time to change your notions of the Sacred!
Your Soul and your Yintegrity is Sovereign. If you learned your notions of the Sacred from a book or a teacher, and not from your own Heart, you have work to do here. Of course, if your books and teachers resonated with your own Heart, fantastic. But if you’re horrified by the idea of Trusting Emotions more than Scripture or Morals, because it might sound like a flood of criminals will have permission to traumatize your Culture, well, watch your television – according to the corporate media, we’re already there, aren’t we.
If you live far from drones and bombs, rampant criminality may sound intolerable because it threatens your Safety, but guess what – it’s just a Mirror for the drones and bombs Big Governments are sending in your name. And what nurtures criminality most of all? Inequality. When was the last time you voted for someone who promised to reduce Inequality, or you refused to vote with your dollars at institutions that support Inequality, or you insisted that your “leaders” end homelessness and unemployment rather than policing lack of obeisance to predatory capitalism and Empire?
Karma might be dead, but that doesn’t mean the Mirror is broken. It’s just more immediate. Even if random violence visited your house, and we wish that on Peoria even less than we wish it on Swat, it’s past time that we understand and accept that Life gets recycled just like Coke bottles and Coors cans.
The Pallas-Chiron-Nodes Mystic Rectangle is the same as the last Portal…
Goddess Pi, can you help me make my Yintegrity permanent so I can Grace-fully expand my Edges into Miracles that lighten my Karma and promote my Mission?
What if we were able to Step Effortlessly onto the Path where our Limitations fall away Magically, and we are doing what we feel Passionate about.
For those who don’t like that, we can be compassionate with them about their lack of understanding, without letting them nudge us off our Path.
Here’s the Yin Gate (las dos equis verdes) and the Mystic Rectangle (la caja azul)…
While the Yin Gate lasts almost until the next Portal on December 10, Portal 12.4 peaks when the Moon Conjoins Pluto and lights up the Pluto-Uranus-Vesta T-Square. This Window opens around 10am PST on December 4, and remains open for about seven hours. Inside this Portal within the Yin Gate, there’s another Window, a Portal of Grace, from this Toadstool or Pagoda Formation…
that the Moon lights up from around 10am PST on December 4 till around 3pm PST on the same day. After that the Toadstool fades away, leaving just the T-Square, which survives until December 12 and provides the main course for Portal 12.10. Remember that December’s Main Effect is the Station of Uranus that occurs December 17; this series of Portals between 11.28 and 12.25 occur every week when the Moon makes Challenging Angles to Uranus, preparing us for the Main Event.
What’s this Toadstool part of the Portal about? Pluto…
Which reminds us that aligning ourselves with our Soul’s Intention is not optional here. Pluto means Transformation, Re-Formation of the Planetary Trance, and while we can steer the Transformation, we can’t reverse it. The Square from Pluto to Uranus Challenges us to Master living on a Plane where the Planetary Trance is about each Person Living Their Own Truth.
The Toadstool Formation embodies that Challenge, with Vesta completing the Pluto-Uranus T-Square (red lines). That’s the same Vesta-Uranus Opposition that drives the Yin Gate. But the Toadstool adds two avenues of Grace – the Pluto-Pallas-South Node Grand Trine (big blue Triangle), and the Sextiles (shorter blue lines) to Chiron and the North Node.
We are not being abandoned here. Big Grace (Grand Trine) is open to all of us who want to stretch (Pallas) to recover skills we developed in other Lifetimes (South Node), and yet more Grace is open to those of us who are willing (Sextiles) to PIAVA Miracles (Chiron) that will move us onto our True Path (North Node).
That’s eight planets in that famous 8-to-11-degree Window we’ve been working with a lot this year. In any sign, 8-to-11-degrees represents the phase where, whatever it is we’re doing, we’ve finished the prototype, and now we’re getting serious about building the Real Thing, version 2.0. That applies to our Yintegrity as much as to our Culture and the Planetary Trance.
Learning and Teaching (Q-Yod) how to Expand (Jupiter) our concept of Self enough to include Source (Sun), thereby releasing the Held Emotions that cover our Hidden Powers (South Node).
Which gives us this very busy full Portal!
But we need to put it all back together again to Live it as a Singular Window.
Then there’s ISON, our Thief of Fire, that brings us the Power of the Gods. ISON’s Material fate is uncertain, as we can see by the Square (dark red line) to Neptune (Material Confusion, Spiritual Truth).
ISON will be Teaching (Quintile) our Consciousness (Juno). What will be learning? During the Portal ISON moves through 4 degrees of Sagittarius, “A little child learning to walk with the encouragement of their parents,” or “The natural assistance of superior powers during crises of growth.”
We could certainly rest our case there! But look at all those light blue lines, making a Septile Kite! What can we make of that?
If we PIAVA it (because in Septile-Land the timing has to be just right), ISON (Stealing Fire from the Gods) can pull our Hidden Skills out from beneath the Emotional Holding that occults them (South Node), lovingly and gently (Venus) and permanently (Ceres).
It’s too complex for the mind to put together, but effortless for the Goddess.
Goddess Pi, may I please be lovingly and gently released from my Self-Sabotaging Limitations.
We make things so difficult, when they’re almost Effortless if we open to the Grace that’s available to us. Remember that Opposition in the Mystic Rectangle, Chiron to Pallas – stretching our Edges to allow Miracles where only Despair dwelled before. And the Sextile between Chiron and the South Node – Grace flows once we take the first step. Our prayer above is a perfect first step.
