4 July IV – Embracing Paradox

June 26, 2017

We’ll talk a lot more about that complex Sedna-Square-Nodes chart (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/06/25/4-july-iii/) between now and 4 July.  But there are two simultaneous charts that are also important .  One is the chart of the Sappho and Klotho Stations… 

  • The Sappho (Self-Love) Station is Exact at 2pm PDT 3 July in 15 Scorpio
  • The Klotho (Initiating a New Timeline) Station at 9am PDT 4 July at 11 Scorpio 
  • The Sedna-Nodes Square is Exact late morning 4 July, and the Moon completes the Grand Cross at 3pm PDT 4 July, in 27 of the Fixed Signs 

And the other chart, which we’ll also talk about later, is the Station of Haumea (Rebirth) at 9pm PDT 6 July, in 23 Libra.

While the Stations may not seem simultaneous, in the three-day span between 2pm PDT 3 July and 9pm PDT 6 July, Sappho, Klotho, and Haumea move less than two Arcminutes.  The Full Moon as seen from your house appears to be more than fifteen times as wide as that distance.  In other words, while the Exact Stations may be several hours apart, the planets are all simultaneously Standing Still, or very close to it.

Given this collection of simultaneous Stations, another Big Rebirth is the obvious Order of the Day, and it seems that we’re likely to be Choosing to be Reborn into another Life of Fear, or one where we’ve Let Go of Fear, replacing it with Love or Curiosity.  The Stations deserve, and will get, their own posts, but it’s very relevant in the context of this Rebirth to consider the two Yin Gates that appear on the graph in the previous post.  They’re…

  • Sedna Opposite Moon, splitting the Golden Rectangle composed of Ceres, which is Out of Bounds (Strong Sustainability), Pandora (who deserves her own paragraph), Uranus-Eris (Yintegrity), and the Saturn-Ixion-Pholus-Quaoar-Galactic Center Stellium (The Most Important Thing here is to Follow the Command from Headquarters to Take Charge of Recovering our Forbidden Genius)
  • Pandora Opposite Uranus-Eris, splitting the Golden Rectangle of Sedna (Fear), Hopi (Respect for All Things), Moon (Manifestation), and Chiron-Lachesis (Choosing between Enduring or Transforming Pain)

The Sedna-Moon Yin Gate is drawn with heavy lines, and the remainder of the overlapping Pandora-Uranus/Eris Yin Gate in lighter lines. 

A Yin Gate is formed when an Opposition splits the short side of a Golden Rectangle.  The Golden Rectangle is drawn in blue; blue because it represents Grace, and Golden because the ratio between the lengths of the two sides is the Golden Angle of Sacred Geometry.  The Oppositions are shown in red (symbolizing Energy or Motivation).  The green lines represent Curiosity.  Curiosity, like Love, eschews Judgment, so we regard it as paramount.  The centerpiece of the Yin Gate is the pair of side-by-side green Xs or interlocking Curiosities.

The Moon moves quickly, so it will be within three Degrees of Sensitivity from its Sedna Opposition for only about twelve hours.  However, we’re talking about a major Rebirth, ie, a Birth, so eight Degrees of Sensitivity is more relevant; that’s more like 32 hours, or the majority of a day on either side of 3pm PDT 4 July.  The Exact Haumea Station falls outside that span, but the important thing is that during the span, Haumea is Stationary.  It means we get a day and a half to check for and correct Birth Defects between the Sedna-Moon Yin Gate and the Haumea Rebirth.

A Yin Gate is a Mystery School, the Objective of which is to Teach us that Paradox demonstrates to us the Inadequacy of our Dualistic orientation toward Life.  Real Life is replete with Contradictions, because Real Life is Unitary and Multifarious (the ultimate Paradox, so to speak), not Dual.  So Contradiction is a sandwich-board painted in big red letters, that says “Here Lies One of Your Limiting Beliefs.” 

However, we’re wearing the sandwich-board, so we can’t see what it says without a Mirror, and of course then it’s backwards.  Hence Blame and Judgment are born; since we can’t read our Limiting Belief, we accuse Other of hypocrisy, since they’re obviously Living a Contradiction.  A Yin Gate is simply a second Mirror that we can use, if we Choose, to view the backwards writing and Witness our Limiting Belief directly.

Okay, Pandora.  Remember that the primary purpose of the Greek Mythologizers was to refute the Matriarchy that was their Heritage, and replace it with the foundations of the Patriarchy.  No Blame, that kind of ping-pong is just what happens when we Live in Duality.  Having awoken one morning with the shocking Realization that they were all spawned by Women, they needed a Story to counteract that horrific Reality.  Hence, Pandora, the alleged first woman in their Mythos, and, appropriately for a Patriarchal if not downright Misogynistic Story line, she introduced Evil into the World, mostly in the form of Seduction.

It’s quite easy to find training in the Plan-Do-Study-Act Masculine or Dynamic Creation process.  Except as an adjunct to Power-Over Religions, it hasn’t been nearly as easy, till recently, to find training in the Feminine or Magnetic Creation process, or PIAVA and its variations.  It’s considered Magic, and to many, Magic is always Black.  That is, even without Patriarchal Intimidation and Bullying, we still labor under the Limiting Belief that the Feminine is “Evil.”  So we see asteroid Pandora as symbolizing the Choice to maintain or Clear that Belief.

The Moon, meanwhile, boasts three levels of Symbolism.  At the lowest level it represents variability, or our “Random” Emotions.  Once we stop including Intuition in the Evil category (as “inferior” to Logic, Heaven Forbid), however, those “Random” Emotions become Instincts, the second level.  If we’re attempting to Power-Over someone, we definitely see their Instincts toward Survival and Sovereignty as Evil.  The third level of the Moon is Manifestation.  Lunar Emotions are the Glue that holds Energy together into Matter and recognizable Form.  It’s not necessarily that the Moon Creates; the Moon symbolizes Creation, and specifically Magnetic Creation. 

So we have a training in the Paradoxical Relationships between Manifestation (Moon) and Fear (Sedna) and a cross-training (symbolized by the overlap between the two Yin Gates) in the Paradoxical Relationships between Yintegrity (Uranus-Eris) and Magnetism (Pandora).

For instance, if we’re in Yintegrity, we have no need for Manipulation and Guile, right?  Bullshit.  We were trained by the Patriarchs never to lie about chopping down Cherry Trees, but in fact, Truth is always on a Need-to-Know basis.  For one thing, we don’t owe them our Time, and most of all, we don’t want to cast our Pearls before Pink Animals (or any other color).  Quite simply, we demean ourself when we do that.  You don’t Teach children what’s not age-appropriate, and the same goes for Teaching adults what’s not maturity-appropriate or Spiritually-appropriate.  People need to earn your Trust.

And everyone knows that we can’t Manifest when we’re in Fear; we need to deal with the Fear before we can fuel our Manifestation Engine with the necessary Passion.  Again, Bullshit.  Fear is one of the more Passionate Emotions we can Feel, and what do we Create when in Fear?  More Fear.  It’s exponential.  Two units of unprocessed Fear Create four, and four units Create sixteen.

Are any of our Judgments not based on Fear?  Maybe “What Am I Afraid Of?” should be our Mantra, or “Who am I afraid of?”  Followed by  “How does that Mirror my Limiting Beliefs” or better yet, “I Wonder how that Mirrors my Limiting Beliefs” followed by Changing the Subject then Paying Attention (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/).  Once we Locate the Emotion of Fear in our Body, that’s behind the Fearsome or Anxious thoughts, several iterations of Tapping (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4) usually resolves the Emotional Overload.  From there we can move toward Love or Curiosity, or simply move on to our next Fear.

There are two very special Fears that encompass a great deal of our Limiting Beliefs, and which especially hinder our Relationships.  These are Fear of Abandonment and Fear of Suffocation.  Most of us emphasize one or the other, though most commonly we have both.  These are both so ancient that they’re barely Personal, though we all have Personal Experience in our backgrounds to reinforce the Karma

No Huper Survives without Community.  To Fear that our Community (or our Partner, or our employer, or our family, or …) is Rejecting us, is to fall under the grip of the ancient Archetype of Abandonment.  We need to Learn where we Feel that in our Body, Lovingly and Gently Embrace it there, and become Ferociously Mindful for any thought that reinforces it, replacing it with a PIAVA that we find our Tribe, with its Unconditional Acceptance and Unfailing Protection.  Yes, no Protection is totally Unfailing, but we can PIAVA it – maybe that’s just a Limiting Belief.

Our Fear of Abandonment is one of the weaknesses that the Patriarchy uses, quite skillfully, to keep us under their thumbs.  And that’s our Fear of Suffocation, our Fear that someone will Control us and Prevent us from Exercising our True Self.  Fear of Suffocation is an Archetype as old as the Individual Soul.  I don’t encounter it as often as I encounter Fear of Abandonment, but it’s there, and it’s important to bring into Consciousness where it can be Transmogrified.

When we can replace “Don’t tell me what to do, you Bastard!” with “Oh, there’s my Suffocation Archetype again!” and replace “Shit, what if I get laid off?” with “Oh, there’s my Abandonment Archetype again!” we will regain a great deal of the Power we’ve been allowing our thoughts to drain out of us.  Next time you’re watching the News, or dealing with a difficult person who’s important in your Life, watch to see how many times these Archetypes arise.  That difficult person may not be draining your Power on purpose, but I can guarantee you that the News is.

Marilyn Raffaele has Channeled an Arcturian Teaching for us around Fear…

Excerpts follow…

“Dear ones, be not afraid of what you are seeing and hearing, for these are the symbols of a changing universe, the dying throes of old energy that is soon to become part of another world in which [those of] you who have chosen to awaken need not take part.  All have been given the choice to ascend.  Most are unaware of this, but on the deeper levels, everyone is choosing.

“[Do not] fear for or be concerned about family and friends who may be choosing not to awaken at this time.  Their Higher Self in its infinite wisdom may know that they need more three dimensional type experiences before they will be ready to leave them behind.  Every person will ascend into higher levels of awareness at some point in their journey, it is inevitable.  [Humanity’s] true nature is Divine and [it] is not meant to spend forever living the experiences of illusory beliefs.”

“True peace is a peace that the three dimensional state of consciousness knows nothing about and thus can never successfully create through treaties, wars, dominance, and punishment – ideas based in the sense of separation.  Because ‘peace’ created through these methods is based in duality and separation, sooner or later the ‘good side’ will flip to the ‘bad side,’ for the belief in duality always manifests as pairs of opposites.  Real peace can only manifest when the substance from which it is formed is present–consciousness.

“Peace is the natural expression of Love, the realization that all is ONE within the ONE.  Why would anyone want to hate, hurt, deceive, lie, kill, and make to suffer, itself?  It is only the dense energies of personal and collective unevolved states of consciousness that see power over others as an appropriate action to bring about peace.  Peace is the birthright of every person because it is the reality – globally and individually.”

“At this time there are many very evolved souls on earth, here to be examples to others as well as to add their Light to the collective.  They did not need to come in order to resolve karma or learn lessons of love, because they have already done this work on earth or on other planets.

“Seeing the need of humans for help at this powerful time of change, these souls lovingly chose to assist. You can see them in all walks of life doing seemingly ordinary things and will recognize them by a loving but often intense energy as they work to bring deeper awareness into situations where it is needed.  They are often intuitively felt as being powerful, but to human eyes look ordinary.

“Actions of love occur daily, but you are primarily served the negative from most news sites.  This is why it is important to limit your involvement in the news because it can easily pull you back into old energy.  It is fine to be aware of what is going on around you, but do not align with it.  It is the same idea as when you align with the energy of some low resonating person and then find yourself drained of energy, which is how the term ‘energy vampires’ came about.

“In all situations, and with all people, places, things, and events keep your energy field clear, filled with light, and not in alignment with any lower resonating energy that may be present.  Lower resonating energies have a sense of ‘heaviness’ about them which is easily felt in some places and with certain people.  Do not fear it for it has no power other than what you give it, but be aware of not aligning or identifying with it.  You may just choose to leave.”

“Up to this point, serious seekers have been allowed to continue in some of their old energy ways without much repercussion, but because the resonance of earth has become so much more rarified, everyone’s corners of belief are being swept out and the spiritual leash has become very short.

“Remember this when small events and actions once considered unimportant, start to feel very important and may even bring in a sense of guilt which you don’t understand.  This is because your energy field has become increasingly more attuned to the higher frequencies of Light, causing you to easily sense when you are out of alignment.”

Orcus and Hopi I

May 18, 2017

Our next Adventure is the sequential Stations of dwarf planet Orcus (Oath-Making and -Breaking) and asteroid Hopi (Respect for All Things).  Both Stations occur just prior to 6am PST, Orcus on 21 May, and Hopi on 22 May.  This will be a particularly fascinating combination of Energies, because most of our Limiting Beliefs were founded by Oaths, Oaths always Power-Over one side or the other of some Duality, and Respect for All Things means the Absence of Judgment.

The result of the Merging of two such contrasting Energies will be laden with Paradox, and Paradox of the exact nature that Spiritual Progress is paved with.  Remember that limiting our Commitments as much as possible is a prerequisite to Yintegrity.  And to be Self-Sovereign, rather than Slaves to our Archetypes, we need to Renounce all of our Oaths.  Being thus Free, we’ll be able to follow our Instinct and Intuition without constraint.

You would think, for instance, that an Orcus-Hopi astroevent would simply be a great time to Swear to Respect All Things.  But that would Betray Respect for Ourself, as it would inhibit our Freedom to Follow our Instincts and Intuitions.  Paradox is not accessible by the logical mind. so we just have to Accept it as a Mystery.

Paradox, as we’ve said, is the realm of the Yin Gate Configuration, a Golden Rectangle bisected on the short side by a third Opposition.  By “coincidence,” there happen to be three Yin Gates in the Orcus and Hopi Station charts.  Here’s an example of one, in the Orcus Station chart…

The Orcus Station itself T-Squares (Mastery through Challenge) one axis of the Golden Rectangle (which is the blue box).  “Coincidentally,” the axis that it T-Squares is the axis between Lilith (Self-Sovereignty itself) on the right and a Conjunction of Ceres (Sustainability) and Mnemosyne (Memory) on the left.  The implication is that We Already Know How to Sustain Self-Sovereignty, all we have to do is Remember That We Know.

Another “coincidence” – one axis of each of the three Yin Gates is T-Squared by one of the Stationary planets.  Such redundancy convinces us that the Universe is serious about this message.

The Challenge is our accumulated Oaths, and the Archetypes we still cling too.  Remember that Karma is dead; our Karma does not CLING TO US, we CLING TO IT.  Are you about to do something that you’ve done before?  Do it differently.  I was about to go get a half-glass of Beer, so to break up the Pattern I’ll do a couple of pirouettes between here and refrigerator.  Not that a half-glass of Beer is a big Pattern of mine, but a trip to the refrigerator certainly is! 

Surprisingly and Remarkably, each pirouette produced a big surge of Joy.  I may adopt a new Pattern!  If you spot an old fart pirouetting down the road, say Hi.  Wait, that’s an Oath!  Revert!

The Opposition in the Yin Gate itself (the one in the center of the Golden Rectangle – I know, it’s both blue and Golden – blue because that’s how we draw Energy lines representing Grace, and Golden because the ratio of the sides is the Golden Ratio of Sacred Geometry fame) is between asteroid Veritas (Truth) and dwarf planet Hylonome (Letting Go of Archetypes) – yet another redundant repetition of our basic theme here, which is about Facing the Truth that Allowing ourself to be Directed by our Unconscious Patterns not only Inhibits our Spiritual Progress, it also generates a good deal of Self-SabotagePirouettes are in our Future whether by Oath or Instinct!

The other diagonal of this Golden Rectangle is an Opposition between asteroids Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) and Nemesis (Ego Death).  Lordy Lordy, another redundant repetition!  Well, most of us will have Ego invested in our Unconscious Limiting Beliefs – that’s how we get them to stick.  Of course we all want to be good little girls and boys, and if Granny told us over and over again that good little girls and boys don’t do that, then there you have it – Ego Investment.  

So you remember how to do Ego Death, right?  You reinterpret “I’d rather DIE” to actually be “I’D rather die,” and them you just let it happen.  Egos are like Moles (the ones in your yard) – if you ever do succeed in killing one, another one will pop up to replace it before you can say “Hooray, I’m Freee at Last!”   Chagrin (or Terror) over Ego Death is totally wasted; new Egos are a dime a dozen.  When someone tells you they gave up their Ego when they were Enlightened, that’s their Ego talking. 

You Embrace Confusion as the First Stage of Growth in Consciousness, which heralds less Slavery to Archetypes and less Self-Sabotage (and another sign of Ego Death).  You might be driving or walking a few blocks from home, and suddenly realize that you’re in a very different World, even while you know exactly where you are.  You might suddenly forget all your passwords, or your spouse’s name, because without warning you’ve regressed to age 6 or 12 or 32 or Atlantis or the time you met Genghis Khan, when the Steppes were in bloom.

As with Curiosity, you want to Break all Habits (Oaths!) to try to Understand.  Trying to Understand means you’re scrambling back to your Olde Ego, and losing all the benefits of Psychic and Spiritual Growth.  Confusion and Curiosity are Beautiful just as they are, they aren’t problems to be solved or reasons to exercise that big glucose-burner in your skull.  They’re glorious states to relax into.  They will take you to Heaven if you let them.

This is only one part of the Orcus-Station chart; we’ll take up other parts in the next installment.  For now, notice that the Orcus Station happens to be Conjunct asteroid Karma – yet one more confirmation of our basic theme of Liberation.  The Initiation of Karma by Orcus already occurred, in mid-November of last year, at 10 Virgo, “”Two heads looking out and beyond the shadows: The growth of true understanding, born out of the transcendence of duality even while immersed in the world of duality.” 

The Validations just keep on coming!  The Karma-Orcus Exposition (Retrograde Conjunction) occurred in early March, and the Confidence-Builder (final crossing) will happen on 30 May.  By then we should be feeling pretty good about how much Karmic baggage we’ve been putting out on the curb for recycling.

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.

Lots of Convergence in the Channeled material this week…

http://danielscranton.com/your-new-abilities-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

All about Making (or Taking) it Easy.  At first glance though the Mercury Station chart (3 May 10am PDT) looks pretty complicated…

We’ll deconstruct it in a minute; for now, notice the orange lines forming a “bowl.”  This is the beginnings of a Grand Quintile (Excellent Opportunity for Learning) that pretty much dominates the 10 May Full Moon chart as the Sun moves into the Vacant fifth position in the Configuration. 

We’ll talk more about that soon; for now, just be Alert that whatever Difficulty or Confusion you Encounter is really about Learning.  We can Learn all manner of “information” without encountering Discomfort, but Real Learning, as in Growth of Consciousness, is often accompanied by Difficulty or Confusion or both.  The Grand Quintile tells us not to try to Puzzle it Out, but to just be Open to Big Change.  Big Change always introduces the Unknown, and Puzzling it Out can only rearrange the deck chairs.

The rest of the chart is actually two Yin GatesBased on our recent Experience we probably think Yin Gates are pretty common, but they actually aren’t.  Two at once is fairly remarkableThe Spiritual Function of a Yin Gate is to give us the Opportunity to Embrace Paradox – that is, to escape the tyranny of the Patriarchal “left brain” and witness the World and the Mysteries more Wholistically.  Again, more admonitions not to try to make Logical Sense out of what we Experience, but rather to make Esoteric Sense out of it.

Let’s tease out the two Yin Gates

First, here’s the Rebirth into Yintegrity Yin Gate.  A Yin Gate is an Opposition (long red line) at the center of a Golden Rectangle (blue box).  Normally an Opposition represents a Duality; a Yin Gate Asks us to Pay Attention to the Coin rather than the heads or tails.  This one has Haumea (Rebirth) on one end and the Merger of Stationary Mercury (Paying Attention), Uranus (our Soul Self), and Eris (the Compulsion to Live our Truth) on the other.

The latter threesome represents YintegrityYangtegrity is Doing what we said we were going to do, no matter what.  Yintegrity is Doing what we darn well Feel like doing, moment to moment – this is, Trusting our Instincts and Intuitions more than we Trust our Commitments.  Of course in Yintegrity we’d Minimize our Commitments, Renegotiate often, and make quality Amends where Renegotiation wasn’t possible and the Relationship was worth keeping – we’d prefer both Yin- and Yang-tegrity to One or the Other (or neither), though we might emphasize One more than the Other while we Learn how they Differ and Practice each One.

Second there’s the Stealing Energy from Fear and Investing It in Self-Love Yin Gate, with Sedna (Fear) on one end and Sappho (Self-Love) on the other.  We’ve had Experience with this one, and discussed it at length, earlier this year.  Suddenly the Channelings – Pushing the Ease Button, Trusting Ourself – start to make Sense, eh?

In each picture we’ve drawn in the rest of the Configuration with lighter lines.  Notice that the two Yin Gates are connected by a Grand Cross (the tilted red square with the X in the center).  That just means that they’re tightly Integrated, giving us the Opportunity to Practice Yintegrity in the context of Self-Love and vice versa.

It’s worth Paying Attention to the other two Oppositions – Chaos (Unlimited Potential) Opposite Saturn-Ixion (The Most Important Thing is to Recover our Abandoned Genius), which is on the Galactic Center (Orders from HQ) and asteroid Hopi (Respect for All Things) Opposite Chiron (Healing the Unhealable). 

If you’re Estranged from anyone, this would be an excellent time to Clear the Conflict, even if it’s “just” to Finish Business and Move On.  And there’s an excellent chance that what you discovered you couldn’t stand about them, or the unacceptable critique they made of you, are big neon signs pointing to your Abandoned Genius.  You don’t need to discuss that with them if it’s not Safe to do so, but you do need to spend time Exploring it on your own or with Safe Friends, because your Abandoned Genius is part of the missing link that will Heal the Unhealable elements of our Huperity, of our misuse of the Home Planet, and of the Despair we can’t help but feel about it.

Re-listen or Re-read the Channelings we began the post with; with a little Effort you’ll see the footprints of your Abandoned Genius in them.

This week I was invited to Attend a Conference on Sustainability put on by Native Americans, but I had a very difficult time finding out the timing and the agenda, even after asking for help.  Rather than reading that as a Sign that it wasn’t my cup of Buffalo Water, it occurred to me that my current path may be leading me away from Reunification with Nature – especially around the Money issues we discussed a couple of posts ago in Forbidden Genius and Responsibility

It’s very easy to make a case that Money is an Artifact of the Industrial Revolution that is on its final Debriefing (till 2021).  Is relaxing about it a Sign that we’ve Transcended it, or a Sign that we’ve Surrendered to it?  Well, today I realized that of course it’s Both/And – how could it be otherwise! – just another Paradox!

Full Moon – The Rest

April 12, 2017

We don’t want to give short shrift to the 15 April Venus Station (3am PDT at 27 Pisces), so let’s finish up the Full Moon expeditiously.  Let me know if any questions come up.  Two other charts are fundamental to grokking the Full Moon, the chart of the Mercury (9 April 4pm PDT, 5 Taurus) and Hylonome (10 April 6am PDT, 9 Capricorn) Stations, and the chart of the Varuna Station (10 April 3pm PDT, 29 Cancer).

Here’s the chart of the Mercury and Hylonome Stations…

The big Grand Cross (red Square and Xes) and the two Grand Trines (equal-sided blue Triangles, which are actually Kites when we add the little triangles on one side of each of them) are the standout features.  I don’t think we introduced the Grand Trine earlier.

A “Trine” is the Angle between two planets that are one third of the way round the Zodiac, and the “Grand Trine”  is made up of three planets equally spaced around the Loop.  Put a fourth planet halfway between two of those, and you have a “Kite,” so named because that’s what it looks like.  A Grand Trine makes things so Easy that we refer to it as “Dumb-Luck Grace.”

The “best” charts are charts like this one, that contain major Motivation Configurations (Grand Cross) and major Grace Configurations (Grand Trines), because they Balance Work and Ease, so we neither exhaust ourself nor get lazy.

This is the chart of a highly Motivated Multi-Tasker who can learn how to Channel tons of Grace.  Grace is its own Master; until we Learn that others have their own Unique Skills, a Grand Cross often signifies Arrogance, as folks seem incompetent to us when they can’t do what’s Effortless for us.  The two Stations are both part of the Grace, not part of the Motivation, and the Complement one another very very well, being both in Earth Signs.

So we should be able to identify the Archeypes that we need to Let Go of relatively easily – don’t try to get hyper-analytical about it, just Ask your Belly what makes it Tense Up.

There are two Fingers of God, one pointing at Hylonome (Letting Go of Archetypes) and the other at Eurydike (Trust).  These are the two Energies that the Universe is Asking us to Pay Special Attention to.

The Varuna-Station chart is more assymetrical…

We can see the Grand Trine (big blue triangle) and two “T-Squares” (big red triangles pointing to the left and lower left).  A T-Square is half of a Grand Cross, and represents Mastery through Challenge.  We usually don’t appreciate the Mastery because we usually get stuck on the Frustration of the ongoing Challenge; we eliminate the Frustration by Paying Attention to how much Mastery we’ve gained.

All that Pressure (where the red and blue triangles converge, at the focus of the T-Square and a corner of the Grand Trine) focuses on asteroid Sappho, which symbolizes Self-Love.  We’ll be making our course Easier by exercising what Self-Love we’ve already Mastered, while we’re Learning more of it.

The other T-Square points toward a Stellium made up of Ixion (Our Forbidden Genius), Saturn (The Most Important Thing), Pholus (Taking Full Responsibility), Quaoar (Survival Instincts), and the Galactic Center (Instructions from Headquarters).  This is pretty serious; basically the Universe is telling us that we all need to get busy Taking Full Responsibility for Recovering our Unique Genius, or our Survival will be in Question.

But neither of these, Big as they are, is the dominant Configuration – that’s the Yin Gate, the two green Xs in the middle of the chart, enclosed in the blue rectangle, and intertwined with the red Ж (Cyrillic letter Zhe) in the center.  The bottom line of a Yin Gate is to Learn the Paradox represented by the central long red line.

Here that’s the Nodal Axis – the path of our Spiritual Progress during the Lifetime.  The Paradox involved here is that We Need the Skills Hidden beneath our Held (maximally resisted) Emotions (the South Node or earbuds at the bottom) in order to accomplish our Lifetime Mission (the North Node or stethoscope at the top).  That which we hate is our most Powerful tool, once we Learn to Embrace it.

 

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.

The Yin Gate and PIAVAs

December 2, 2016

Except for posts where I forgot to add the Category, everything we’ve written about the Yin Gate can be found at 

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/configurations/yin-gate/

The best summary among those articles is probably…

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/10/18/portal-18-10-part-1/

and the geometry of the Yin Gate Configuration is illustrated at…

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2014/06/13/full-moon-yin-gate-and-portal-7-5-15/

The Yin Gate is a special case of the Golden Rectangle, which is the blue rectangle in the picture.  Blue lines represent Energies of Grace or Ease.  This particular blue rectangle is called “Golden” because the ratio of the length of the long lines to the length of the short lines is the “Golden Ratio” (~1.618 to 1.000).  That ratio is called “Golden” because it is found everywhere in Nature – among tree branches, among leaves, among veins in leaves, among bones and vessels and nerves in Critters, in Crystals, in molecular structure, etc.,  etc.

We might also encounter it as the “Golden Angle” (360 Degrees divided by 1.618 or 222.5 Degrees).  We’ve written about that Angle in astrology, at 

http://www.jbuss.com/jbl4/bluemoon204.htm

We focus our astrological Attention on the Angles between planets because the Angles between them indicate the sort of Energy the planets Act Out through their combinations.  The Signs in astrology represent Flavors of Expression, the Houses represent Material Manifestation Styles, and the Angles (“Aspects” in astrologuese) represent Energies.  We happen to believe that the Essence of the Universe is Energy; Matter is just a side effect.  So we focus on the Angles – the Energies.

We differentiate the sort of Curiosity that seeks Answers from the sort of Curiosity that’s Perpetual.  Perpetual Curiosity is akin to Awe and Wonder, like the Awe and Wonder you can see in the eyes of a Newborn when they’re Safe, or what you’re likely to Feel during a Total Solar Eclipse.  We focus on Perpetual Curiosity because it Allows us to escape from our Birdcages.  

When we Understand, we create a box or a Cage to put ourselves in.  We do it for Safety.  Just as an example, suppose you’re walking down the sidewalk of a road that has curves in it.  At some points in the curve, cars will appear to be coming directly at you.  Do you leap out of the way every time this happens?  No, because your Understanding tells you that the driver will follow the road rather than go straight ahead and run over you.

This saves you from burning out your adrenals every time you go for a short walk, and keeps your clothes and shoes tidy because you spend less time in the shrubbery.  Now, once you encounter a driver who’s composing a text on their cellphone instead of paying Attention to the road, then, once you get out of the hospital, if you do, you’re going to recognize that your Birdcage needs to have some of its bars adjusted.  This is the Danger of Understanding; it works till it doesn’t.

When we study the metaphysical Universe, Understanding is constantly in our way.  The more we Feel Safe about our Understanding, the more Danger we’re in, physically.  Of course there’s no metaphysical Danger; cars can’t put Souls in the hospital, as much as they Enjoy the game of trying.  Or so we Understand.  

There are things we Knowa priori.  These things don’t come from the mind’s Understanding, they come from the Heart’s Knowing.  Understanding is Dangerously subject to mass hypnosis and a slavish Devotion to Logic and Pleasing.  While everyone focuses on what’s Logical, they seldom mention that Logic is irrelevant when you Change the Assumptions.  Without specific and carefully specified Assumptions, Logic is nothing but propaganda, also often known as Bullshit.  And while everyone focuses on Pleasing and Conforming, they seldom mention that it freezes off your Creative Genius as if it was a wart.

We were all raised to Understand (and sometimes follow) reasonable Limits of socially acceptable – in our Culture and in our family – behavior, thoughts, and Emotional Expression.  Maturity it’s known as, and you’ll look long and hard to find folks who Understand that Maturity is propaganda.  This is called our “Programming,” and it’s not easy to break out of.

There are places for all of us where our Programming and our Heart’s Knowing don’t jive with one another.  Self-Sabotage is the result.  Deprogramming ourself and eliminating Self-Sabotage is a worthy goal of astrology, since your natal chart shows how you ran your Energy before you were Programmed to Conform to socially acceptable Understanding.

Which is not to say that many forms of social standards aren’t very handy – no one needs to be murdered while just walking down the street because someone’s Deprogrammed self thought it would be kicks, or because their Emotional Response to Fear was to strike out.  On the other hand, the Heart’s Knowing is far less likely to be murderous than, say, the mind’s Ideals or the Solar Plexus’s or Belly’s Emotions, so Deprogramming to the Heart’s Knowing is not in general anti-social.  

The mind doesn’t know that everyone’s Heart’s Knowing is different from everyone else’s.  The Heart does Know this, and accepts it Fully.  “Don’t bother me with the Facts” is completely legitimate when it’s the Heart that’s speaking.  When it’s the mind’s Ideology that’s speaking, it’s rhetoric and propaganda.

All this is a long way of saying that the emphasis in a Yin Gate is on the green Xes, and the green lines represent Curiosity, hopefully Perpetual Curiosity.  Perpetual Curiosity is Yin (Magnetic); Understanding is Yang (Dynamic).  An important facet of Perpetual Curiosity is Paradox – the Yin side of Contradiction.  The mind is Dualistic; the Universe is Multifarious and Unitary.  Dualistic Either/Ors Limit us; Multifarious Both/Ands Expand us.

So the mind has to be retrained to simultaneously accept what appear to be Mutually Contradictory ideas or Emotions.  We sometimes refer to this as “Cognitive Dissonance,” after Castaneda, but the term is sometimes used differently by others.  For instance, can your Attention be simultaneously within your Body and outside of your Body?  Attention is the scarcest “commodity” we have; if we can retrain our Attention to be Multifarious, we’ll be Living much more fully, living more Multidimensionally.

That’s our Objective, to be as Present as we can, to as much of Reality as we can, as much of the Time as we can.  

We recognize that the Logical mind can not take us there, so we use “Right-brain” or Yin Manifestation techniques, which we call PIAVA.  If you’re at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/ (as opposed to pointing at one of the articles) you can scroll down to the list of Categories (in the right-hand column) and click on “PIAVA,” or you can just read…

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/09/02/piava-review/

for a more concise review.

This is important because only the “Right” brain can access Perpetual Curiosity.  While we could use any of the PIAVA techniques to address one of the green lines in the Yin Gate, we often use Wonder.  

In astrologese the green lines are called “Quincunxes” – an “Unx” is one twelfth, and “Quin” means five – so we’re looking at an Angular relationship between planets where one planet is five twelfths of the way ’round the Zodiac from the other planet.  (We often use this type and indentation for technical astrological notes.)

In the particular Yin Gate that Blesses us as we speak here in early December 2016, the four green lines connect…

  • (1) Lilith (Self-Sovereignty) to Chaos (Unlimited Potential) – the format is “planet (meaning)”.
  • (2) Haumea (Rebirth) to Sedna (Embracing Fear).
  • (3) Ixion-Pholus (Recovering our Abandoned Genius) to Sedna (Embracing Fear).
  • (4) Lilith (Self-Sovereignty) to Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne (Memories of Deviation from, or Rejection of, our True Self).

So the way this Yin Gate Mystery School game is played, you can assign a PIAVA of your Choosing to each of the four green lines, assembling your PIAVAs using as building blocks the meanings of the planets (given above in parens) and relevance to your own Life at the moment.  For instance, I might Choose…

  • (1) “I Wonder what Potential Surprising new ways I will Create or be Given, to Survive and Thrive in the face of Cultural Collapse, when I am more fully Deprogrammed.”  (ie, Self-Sovereign, rather than being Driven by Unconscious Programming.)
  • (2) “God, Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that my Ego be Gently revamped so that my first Instinct is to Embrace Fear Lovingly, Breathing into it.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done…  Thank You, God/Goddess…  Show me…”   (This is a specific Ritual format; see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2015/11/02/piavac/ .  By Ritual, I simply mean that there’s Power in Repetition; I don’t mean that there’s a “right” or “wrong” way to do it.  The Ritual portions are in purple.)
  • (3) “Ganeshi, please Remove All Obstacles to a  Loving and Gentle introduction to the Fears that Restrain my Unique Creative Genius, and please Remove All Obstacles to my Lovingly and Gently Embracing those Fears and Liberating my Brilliance, Gorgeousness, Talents, and Fabulosity.  Thank you, Ganeshi!”  (Another Ritual form, less structured than the first; see https://www.goodreads.com/author/quotes/17297.Marianne_Williamson .)
  • (4) “Great Spirit, please Lovingly and Gently and Rapidly and Completely grant me the Self-Sovereignty to Let Go of of Self-Sabotage and Fully and Permanently Embrace my True Self.” (Here I’ve put the adverbly clause in purple to emphasize it, because it’s a very useful addition to most PIAVAs, in an attempt to reduce or eliminate the “Healing Crisis” or Ego’s Resistance to Change, without hampering the Request.  We’re courting Ego Death here, and the Organism has a very deep Drive to Survive; the Ego’s job is to keep the Soul’s Physical Vehicle Alive, and it Reacts Vigorously to threats!)

 There are a couple of ancillary “Rituals” or suggested additions to the PIAVA process.  The process is designed to Trigger the Intuition and Soul-Connection, so to use it we have to get the mind and its Birdcage of Understanding out of the way.  To do that we “Change the Subject,” or do our best to forget that (and what) we just PIAVAed.  

Test this with your lost car-keys or anything else that you’ve misplaced or that has gone Walkabout.  If you “look everywhere” for them and can’t find them, PIAVA to find them.  When you Change the Subject, you’re very likely to “happen upon them” in a place where you never would have “thought” to look.

Yesterday for instance when I came in from Gardening I noticed that my new clippers weren’t where I have become accustomed to putting them.  I often set a tool down in the Garden and then forget to return for it.  So I checked the other places I may have put it, then retraced my paths through the Garden as best I could remember.  No clippers.  So finally I asked Ganeshi to “Remove All Obstacles” to finding my clippers.  Almost immediately I had a clear picture in my mind’s eye of the clippers slipping to the bottom of the box that I was putting my harvested Nettles into.  Clippers found, Soup delicious.

The general observation is that when we have no Unconscious blocks to a Manifestation, the Universe will Respond directly to a PIAVA.  When we do have Unconscious blocks, or Conflicting Goals, the Universe will show us the blocks instead.  It uses the Fisherperson example – give someone a Fish, and they’ll eat; teach someone how to Fish, and they’ll sit around in the boat drinking beer all afternoon, then maybe they’ll get to eat, if the ballgame didn’t scare away the fish.

So the third part of the PIAVA process is, after a suitable hiatus, “Paying Attention.”  If we haven’t directly Manifested what we PIAVAed, or gotten some useful information about it, within a day or two, we want to review what we PIAVAed while we Ask what occurred, between the PIAVA and the review, that was Unusual or Unexpected.  That will be a clue to our block or Conflicting Goal(s).  Since the blocks and Goals are likely to be Unconscious, the clue will probably be in the form of a riddle or a funhouse mirror, a role reversal, or another befuddlement.

So we may have to PIAVA that we come to Understand the relationship between the original PIAVA and the Unusual or Unexpected Event.  For instance, suppose you PIAVAed World Peace and Equal Rights, and the next day your fellow countrypersons elected a Misogynist and Racist to be your Fearsome Leader.  “Great Spirit, what the heck does that say about the sort of Self-Sabotages the Unconscious might be perpetrating to World Peace and Equal Rights?”  

And off we go from there, Exploring the Unconscious Wilderness…

Full Moon 29.11a

November 25, 2016

As we approach the 29 November New Moon, Avoiding Expectations is the most important thing we can remember to do.  As Pan often reminds Michael Roads, “Look and Learn” – Observe, no Judgments, no Conclusions.

We not only have a Grand Quintile (Massive Learning Opportunity) but a Yin Gate (Feminine Mystery School), both of which continue into December, with the Yin Gate ongoing into January.  Our Trust Grand Sextile also remains.

The Grand Quintile features…

  • Jupiter – Expansion
  • Quaoar-Pholus – Being Fully Responsible to Our Survival
  • Neptune – Our Cultures
  • Sedna – Becoming Conscious of Our Fear
  • Vesta – Our Unconscious Beliefs

The Yin Gate is embedded in the ongoing Golden Rectangle that we’ve been reading as Recovery of Our Abandoned Genius.  The Golden Rectangle contains…

  • Ixion-Mercury – Awareness of our Abandoned Genius
  • Chaos – Our Potential, Limited only by Our Beliefs
  • Haumea – Rebirth
  • Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne – Ongoing Recovery of Our True Self

and the central axis that completes the Yin Gate is made up of…

  • Lilith – Self-Sovereignty
  • Sedna – Awareness of our Fear

which creates the four Quincunxes (Curiosity) that characterize the Mystery School

  • Lilith to Uranus-Eris et al – “I Wonder how Yintegrity and Self-Sovereignty might fit together in my Life.”
  • Sedna to Ixion-Mercury – “I Wonder how Fear has suppressed my Genius.”
  • Lilith to Chaos – “I Wonder what sort of Unimagined Worlds might Open Up to me when I regain my Self-Sovereignty.”
  • Sedna to Haumea – “I Wonder what awaits me on the Other Side of Fear.”

While some of these might sound like “Duh!” Wonderings, they aren’t; there are genuine Mysteries behind their apparent obviousness.  For instance, it might seem like of course Yintegrity and Self-Sovereignty fit together, like hand and glove, yet if we depend on Approval from Others, can we really Enjoy full Yintegrity?  

“People unwittingly and unknowingly cluster.  Every strong emotional expression clusters.  Like attracts like; this is clustering.  But there is one exception.  People who live and express unconditional Love are people of Balance.  And Balance does not cluster.  These people walk their own path.  

“And this is what I’m looking for – the person or people who do not cluster.  I use my far-away vision, taking in all the townspeople who are visible in one long over-glance.  People with Balance stand out from the crowd, rather like a light on a dark night.”

–Michael Roads, Through the Eyes of Love, Book Two, p,273.

The more you’re able to Open Up to genuine Accept-No-Conclusions Curiosity, the greater your Leap into Growth.

In addition to the Ixion-et al Golden Rectangle, the Grand Sextile includes Eurydike (Trust) and Pallas (Boundaries).  When Lilith and Sedna are factored in, plus Venus and Chiron (and we stretch Orb a tad), we have ten out of twelve points for creating a Grand Unx (twelve more or less equally-spaced planets) in our recently-favored 20-26 Degree zone – the ideal Configuration for breaking free from Archetypes, Karma, and Self-Sabotage.

Of the two Vacancies in the Grand Unx, one is occupied by asteroid Siwa, a Slavic Fertility Goddess whose Discovery chart reveals a fascinating picture of the Traumatic Reality of Creativity/Procreativity.  The other Vacancy is 23 Cancer, A literary society.

Portal 18.10 Part 1

October 18, 2016

You can find a picture of the Geometry of a Yin Gate at…

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2014/06/13/full-moon-yin-gate-and-portal-7-5-15/

Yin Gate is an Initiation into the Goddess’s Mystery School.  In a Mystery School we’re forced to Learn to hold contradictory Perspectives at the same time, because to make any Sense out of the Reality we’re being shown, we have to replace the Concept of Contradiction with the Concept of Paradox.  In a Yin Gate we’re forced out of the Logical “Left Brain” and into the Relational “Right Brain.”  What we Encounter does not follow the rules of Logic.  It follow the rules of Relationship.

So what are the rules of Relationship?  Well, we know one of them already; the Universe does not operate under Either/Or, it operates under Both/And.  When the Red Pill gives you Heads and the White Pill gives you Tails, you have to move to The Coin.  It’s not always so obvious as that.  It’s more often like Encountering the Gollum and having to solve his Riddles.  It’s the classic case of needing to find a New Perspective that can Relate the apparent incompatibilities that we have Encountered to one another.  

  • Pause a minute and consider your recent Experiences.  Does this make them any less incomprehensible?

Or the Alternative, which is simply Accepting the Paradox as it is.  This is actually the better course, because we’re no longer forcing Reality into our little intellectual boxes, but letting the Universe be larger than mind.  Universe and Consciousness are synonymous, but we’ve been weaned on the Propaganda that mind is larger than Universe, that mind can successfully constrain the Universe into a series of equations; this is Propaganda because it’s sold to us as if it were the Only Truth.  In fact, mind is a small subset of Consciousness.

Acceptance of Paradox is very similar to Acceptance of Confusion as an Emotion rather than a Riddle that needs to be solved intellectually.  Without Accepting Confusion exactly as it is, we are unable to Grow our Consciousness Lovingly and Gently.  We could suggest that the necessity for Growth is endemic, and that without Loving and Gentle Release it backs up until Trauma forces us to Grow.  I don’t see that as a property of the Universe.  It’s an idea, a Perspective.  If it helps you understand your Past, then it’s useful.  If it motivates you to Embrace Confusion as it is, then it’s useful.

Acceptance of Paradox is the process by which Knowledge becomes Wisdom, engendering Intuition, and Trust of it.  You’ve been taught that Tolkien’s Hobbit tales are a classic Hero’s Journey.  But seriously now, what Reward does the Hero receive?  Self-Confidence and Idolization – Puffery for the Ego, easily blocking Acceptance of Confusion.  A fitting reward for the Age of Aries, but that was two Millennia ago.  For the Age of Aquarius or even the Age of Pisces, Self-Confidence can be a hollow Reward, especially if it isn’t matched by Self-Knowledge.  But then, The Fool represents Courage, doesn’t it.  The Hobbit tales are actually a Yin Gate.

  • What other rules of Relationship do you routinely use in your own Life?

In any Yin Gate the emphasis is strongly on the Opposition in the center, the one with the two back-to-back green Arrowheads or Fingers of God, which literally signify “Pay Attention!

At 11am PDT on 18 November, asteroid Nemesis (Epiphanies about Self-Sabotage) Conjoins asteroid Juno (the Edges of our Consciousness) at one end of the central Opposition in our current Yin Gate.  This is 24 Scorpio, where the recent Nova appeared ( http://phys.org/news/2016-09-bright-binocular-nova-lupus.html ).  It’s not an Initiation; Nemesis and Juno have met before on their current Cycle.  The other end of the central Opposition is occupied by Sedna, symbolizing Actions Taken out of Panic.

So we could say that the basic Energy embedded in this Portal is about Becoming Aware of the triggers that move us toward Panic and cause us to Act in ways that do not further our best interests.  When you apply this filter to your recent Experience, does it generate any useful Insight?

The remainder of the Yin Gate should help us understand more about this basic Energy.  This is 22-26 Degrees, the place where we’re starting Version 4.0 of our current Big Project, and beginning to adapt it to Community.  We’ve been working very intensely in this space for a while now, and it will save our Lives over the next four years.  Without the green Arrowheads, a Yin Gate would “just” be a Golden Rectangle (“just” because a Golden Rectangle represents profound Grace), which is the blue box in the picture.  A Golden Rectangle provides Grace around the two Oppositions – the red “X” between the corners of the blue box.

We know these two Oppositions well.  One of them is about the Emergence of a Deeper version of our True Self, symbolized by dwarf planet Haumea (Rebirth) Opposing Uranus (our Soul Self) and Eris (Truthtelling).  This is the same axis that Saturday’s Full Moon sat upon, which is a very Strong Affirmation.  While the Moon has moved on, the Sun is still very near Haumea.

The other Opposition is about the Recovery of our Hidden Genius, which may require that we Remember and Let Go Of the Trauma that forced it to Hide, as Ixion (our Abandoned Unique Genius) and Pholus (Being Fully Responsible To) Oppose Chaos (Unlimited Potential) and asteroid Veritas (Truth).  The Golden Rectangle tells us that these two processes are Complementing one another, each making the other Easier.

This second Opposition is Lit Up further by being one axis of the Grand Cross we spoke of at length in Portal 13.10.  The Opposition that Squares the Hidden-Genius axis is the one between Chiron (Despair and Miracle) and Hopi (Respect for All Things) – Embracing our Projections.

So, Bottom Line, this Portal is about Becoming Conscious of our “Stops” – the barriers in our Psyche which Stop us from Activating our Unique Genius and Living Authentically.  Once they’re Conscious, we can Change them.  The essence of those green Arrowheads is Curiosity.  “I Wonder how this will Unfold.” – not a Question that seeks an Answer.   Wonder as in Awe.  “Great Spirit, please Lovingly and Gently Open my Eyes to the Miracles that will Unfold here.”

The other big Configuration in the cluster near the Midpoints of the Signs is a Yin Gate in 22-25 Degrees.  There’s a nice picture and description of a Yin Gate in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2014/06/13/full-moon-yin-gate-and-portal-7-5-15/ .  A Yin Gate represents an Initiation into Mystery, embodied by the Central Opposition, the one with Yods to both ends of it.  The Central Opposition in the current Yin Gate is Vesta-Eris in Aries to Haumea in Libra…

The Central Issue here is…

Becoming Aware of the Limitations imposed on our Life by our Unconscious Beliefs.  

We normally have very good reasons for keeping Unconscious Beliefs repressed, though the reason could be as simple as we’re too busy or too lazy to rework our entire approach to Life just because a few pieces don’t fit together well.  The folks at the Tea Parties carrying “Government Keep Your Hands off my Medicare” come to mind.  Or the poor saps who don’t realize that “Making American Great Again” means making it Great for the billionaires.

Often though it’s about not wanting to face down our Held Emotions – the situations that we in one Body or another endured and never want to revisit.  As we mentioned in the previous Heavy I post, those could well be coming up this week.  We can look for more clues in the “Subsidiary Issues” which we elaborated in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2014/06/20/the-second-harmonic/ ), but first, getting our Limiting Beliefs pulled up by the Roots is only half of the Central Issue.  The other half is a…

Rebirth of our Social Self and the way we Relate to the Outside World.

We can dig for more information about that in the Sabian Symbol, “The sight of an autumn leaf brings to a pilgrim the sudden revelation of the Mystery of Life and Death.”  I don’t think Elsie used “Pilgrim” in the same way that John Wayne did.  My guess is that rather than thinking “That Asshole!” about a fellow Pilgrim who doesn’t Behave the way Mom said every decent person should, we might think, “Whoa, that poor Bloke has probably Lived through the same sort of Nightmares I have.”

The Subsidiary Issues provide reinforcement and background, but not a lot of Insight.  They’re

  • The Threat of being Overwhelmed when our Held Emotions well up in our throat ( South Node in Pisces ) versus Allowing our Ego to be Overhauled to reorient our Life toward our Deepest Desires ( North Node in Virgo ) and 
  • Actions Motivated by Fear of Loss ( Sedna in Taurus ) versus Actions Motivated by a Deep Intuitive Understanding of Context ( Mars in Scorpio )

But now, this is a Yin Gate, which means that the two Subsidiary Issues are bound together with a Great Deal of Grace ( the Golden Rectangle ), so they complement and educate one another.  The Trines indicate Dumb-Luck Grace between Fear and Desire (which would appear to suggest that it might be a good time to Face Down our Fear), and between Karma and Action.  What sort of Action?  That’s suggested by the Sextiles, in this case Action in Pursuit of our Mission, or in Pursuit of our current picture of our Mission – namely our Deepest Desires.

The Goddess is no Dummy; she encoded our Mission into our Deepest Desires, so there’s no way we could possibly forget it.  Motivation from the intellect is fine, as far as it goes.  But it doesn’t have nearly the Power and Persistence as Motivation from the Heart or the Gut or the Groin.  We were just Programmed to Believe that those kinds of Motivations were Silly or Stupid or Uncivil.  We were easy to Program because that’s what our Held Emotions told us anyway.  Which is just another way of saying that’s what we’re doing this week, examining our Programming and our Vulnerability to it.

Then there are the Dos Equiis, the four Curiosities, where the Universe is advising us to eschew Analysis and substitute Wonder.  These are…

  • I Wonder how my Unconscious Beliefs have warped my Deepest Desires
  • I Wonder how my Beliefs have constrained my Actions
  • I Wonder how Fear of Loss Limits my social interactions
  • I Wonder how my Held Emotions have warped my social interactions

These are Mysteries.  If your mind jumps at the chance to provide simple Answers to these Musings, thank it for Contributing and change the wording.  For instance, if it’s obvious to you how your Fear of Loss Limits your social interactions, change it to “I Wonder what would happen to my Social Life if my Fear of Loss was assuaged,” or something else that triggers your Imagination rather than your intellect.

At mid-month, this Configuration was not just a Yin Gate, but also a Flying Yoda, with a Kite stretched across the Golden Rectangle, topped by Haumea, and with T-Squares to each corner-to-corner Opposition in the Golden Rectangle.  We talk about Flying Yodas in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2015/12/04/orcus-ii/ , but in that essay I don’t think we mentioned the embedded Yin Gate or the T-Squares.  

The picture in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2015/03/30/very-busy-march-31/ shows the tailed Flying Squirrel, and actually, if we moved Ceres a few degrees forward, Mercury-Juno-Makemake-Ceres-Mercury would trace out a Golden Rectangle and enclose a Yin Gate.  (That’s a hypothetical; Mercury would be likely to move forward four times faster than Ceres.)  The T-Squares in that picture would be Pallas on Mercury-Opposite-Makemake, and Mars on Juno-Opposite-Pallas.

At the moment we have only a one-armed Flying Yoda, since the other arm was formed by Klotho and Sappho.  Klotho-Sappho (cutting a new Fabric for Life based on Singing the Praises of Love) is a great arm for a Haumea Kite to have, and not only can we easily conceive that the full Flying Yoda has provided a continuing Blessing, but any projects born around mid-February will certainly receive that Blessing.

The persisting arm of the Flying Yoda is Ixion, another fabulous Blessing.  If you didn’t notice the aroma of our Abandoned Genius in the earlier discussion of Programming and Desire, you might want to re-read it.  It’s quite a “coincidence” that Ixion occupies a Ray of the Grand Trine, because while we didn’t name it that, the Ixion Discovery chart contains a full Flying Yoda, focused on Ixion itself!  See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2015/03/23/ixion/ .

We’ll be able to bring our Abandoned Genius home here as well, as Grace surrounds it and connects it to our Rebirth.
