Privilege Portal

June 12, 2021

The chart of the Emphasis on Privilege and Abuse that peaks at 5:03 am PDT on 14 June 2021 (Station of dwarf planet Nessus)…

…is all about Consciousness Expansion (the dominant feature is the T-Square [red triangle] from Nessus [Abuse and Privilege] Opposite asteroid Vesta [Unconscious Limitations] to asteroid Juno [Expansion of Consciousness], which is Conjunct the Great Attractor [Our Ultimate Destination] in 15 Sagittarius [“The Groundhog looking for its Shadow“]). While Heads always implies Tails as well, it appears to me that this Portal may be more about Privilege than about Abuse, as it Calls Out Greedheads (that is, Ground-Hogs as Hoarders and Abusers of Land). Consider this…

The guy in the pink sweater is the largest owner of farmland in the US. And he isn’t into Regenerative Farmingquite the opposite.

“Land is power, land is wealth, and, more importantly, land is about race and class. The relationship to land – who owns it, who works it and who cares for it – reflects obscene levels of inequality and legacies of colonialism and white supremacy in the United States, and also the world. Wealth accumulation always goes hand-in-hand with exploitation and dispossession. In this country, enslaved Black labor first built US wealth atop stolen Native land. The 1862 Homestead Act opened up 270m acres of Indigenous territory – which amounts to 10% of US land – for white settlement. Black, Mexican, Asian, and Native people, of course, were categorically excluded from the benefits of a federal program that subsidized and protected generations of white wealth.” —

But you’re probably familiar with the Shadow, “the unknown dark side of the personality. According to Jung, the shadow, in being instinctive and irrational, is prone to psychological projection, in which a perceived personal inferiority is recognized as a perceived moral deficiency in someone else. Jung writes that if these projections remain hidden, ‘the projection-making factor (the Shadow archetype) then has a free hand and can realize its object – if it has one – or bring about some other situation characteristic of its power.’ These projections insulate and harm individuals by acting as a constantly thickening veil of illusion between the ego and the real world.” —

“On 24 February 2011, Italy’s Supreme Court upheld the criminal conviction of Cardinal Roberto Tucci, former president of Vatican Radio’s management committee, for creating a public nuisance by polluting the environment with radio waves. The Vatican’s broadcasts to the world, transmitted in forty languages, emanate from fifty-eight powerful radio towers occupying over one thousand acres of land, surrounded by suburban communities. And for decades, residents in those communities had been screaming that the transmissions were destroying their health as well as causing an epidemic of childhood leukemia. At the request of the Public Prosecutor’s office in Rome, which was considering bringing charges against the Vatican for negligent homicide, Judge Zaira Sacchi ordered an official investigation by the National Cancer Institute of Milan. The results, released 13 November 2010, were shocking. Between 1997 and 2003, children aged one to fourteen who lived between 6 and 12 km (3.7 to 7.5 mi) from Vatican Radio’s antenna farm developed leukemia, lymphoma, or myeloma at eight times the rate of children who lived further away. And adults who lived between 6 and 12 km from the antennas died of leukemia at almost seven times the rate of adults who lived further away.” –Arthur Firstenberg, The Invisible Rainbow, pp.231-232

“On 24 February 2011, the Supreme Court of Italy upheld the 2005 conviction of Cardinal Tucci for polluting Rome with radio waves. A ten-day suspended jail sentence was his only punishment. No one has ever been compensated for their injuries. The Prosecutor’s Office has not filed charges of negligent homicide. Vatican Radio’s antennas have not been shut down.” —ibid, p.261; see also

What is Unconscious is outside of our sphere of Healthy Control. Living from Unconsciousness, we’re Victims of our Fate and Karma. What is Conscious is subject to Choice. Consciousness doesn’t necessarily give us the Power, by ourself, to Change the World. But it does actually give us the Power to Change our World…

All of which doesn’t mean that our Abuse Memories (and our Outrage at Ongoing Personal and Global Abuse) won’t be Lit Up. Dwarf planets Gonggong (Intrusive Memories) and Eris (Revelation of What’s Been Denied), which abet Nessus in evoking our Abuse PTSD, haven’t been Lit Up brightly by our current Klotho/Eclipse/Nessus action, but Gonggong will be Lit Up by our 19-20 June Manifestation Adventures (simultaneous Stations of Makemake [Manifestation], Jupiter [Expansion], and Lachesis [Consciously Letting Go of Karma]). Every evocation of our Abuse PTSD is an Opportunity to Change our Programming from Revulsion to Healing. I don’t Believe that knowledge about how to make that Change is available before-hand. We just have to PIAVA the Outcome we Want, and then let it Arrive on its own.

There’s more going on in this chart…

  • Soul Letting Go of Discipline that Maintains the Current Ego (Saturn Waning Square Uranus),
  • Soul Descending Sustainably into Matter (Ceres Conjunct Uranus in Taurus),
  • Despair over the Impossibility of Change (Chiron Opposite Klotho)

…which we can explore in the next post.

Extra Day of Earth-Healing Interviews

Because there have been technical difficulties, Brooke Medicine Eagle has extended her free replay of all of the interviews in her Returning to Earth ~ Becoming Fully Human series. Find the portal at, and our intro in the previous post at

Earth-Healing Interviews

December 16, 2020

In honor of Chiron’s Station, for the last month or so long-time Earth-Healer Brooke Medicine Eagle has been hosting a series, called Returning to Earth ~ Becoming Fully Human, of daily free-to-watch-at-the-time online interviews with a variety of people who are engaged in Reanimating the Earth (a necessary first step for Healing the Planet from the chronic Western Civilization Disease that’s afflicting Her) in many different ways. The series is purchasable, but today she’s offering free replays of all of the interviews. I haven’t had time to watch very many of them, but some of them are exquisite, such as the interviews with Ilarion Merculieff (Becoming a Real Human Being), David and Emma Farrell (Becoming Indigenous in Your Own Land), and Don Beans (The Power of Integrative Wholistic Medicine). Fortunately I haven’t needed to try to contact him about this, but Dr. Beans says he has Homeopathic remedies for the Cursonavirus. Find the interviews today at

Heavy Fortnight 2

June 2, 2020

Hard to keep track of everything!  Kelley Hunter points out that the 5 June 2020 Full Moon (12:12 pm PDT) is an Eclipse.  Barely, but still an Eclipse.  Eclipses mean Enlightenment, and thus a continuation of our recent Consciousness Expansion Adventures.  Consciousness Grows not through Discovery, but through Differentiation.  We suddenly See things we didn’t See (or Feel, or Hear, or Intuit, etc), but they were there all along.  One of the best ways to do this is to suddenly Remove what we’re used to Taking for Granted.  That’s what Eclipses do, and that’s why we interpret them as Enlightenment.

As is her wont, Kelley provides a bunch of great information about it, so I don’t have to…

She refers to it as a Venusian Eclipse, and I didn’t even put Venus on our Full Moon chart (previous post)!  It turns out that it’s a few arcminutes outside of our usual 3-Degree Sensitivity span, but that’s not why I left it out – being that close, I would have included it.  I didn’t notice it because I usually ignore Venus and Mercury, because most astrologers give them a lot of Attention – again, so I don’t have to!

We’re familiar with Processes and Events that happen all the time, and Venus and Mercury astroevents do just that.  We put most of our Attention in this blog on things that happen less often, things we’re less familiar with, which we Believe are the places where we most need additional Perspective.  It was that first brought my Attention to Venus, pointing out that it was so close to the Sun that its dark side was facing us…

It took me a bit to figure out that picture – Venus is far too small, from where we sit, to block out the Sun!  Turns out the bright ring is Sunlight Illuminating Venus’s thin atmosphere not from behind but from nearby, and it was a very difficult photo to take because the Sun was so close.

Venus turned Retrograde on 13 May (in 22 Gemini) and actually crosses the Sun on 3 June (around noon PDT).  It goes Direct again on 25 June (in 6 Gemini), which means that we’ve been Evaluating the Flexibility (Gemini) of our Values (Venus) and our Egos and our Relationships (the Leo through Pisces Duads of Gemini) since early April, and we won’t be done with that till the end of July (the “Shadow Period” spans 10 April to 29 July).  Another angle on what we’ve said in the previous post (Nemesis, Orcus, Nessus, Atropos-Karma).  The Corollavirus has been doing this pretty well for us – or “to” us if it’s put us in Victim.  That suggests that the virus is far from “finished” with us.

Brenda Hoffman nails all this pretty well in her Channeling for today…

“You are shifting so rapidly that what was is no more.  Of course, you are concerned about the riots, the virus, and your seemingly never-ending life changes.

“But all in all, you feel as if you have a handle on your life.  Something you have not felt for some time.  For you can commiserate with those enmeshed in the pain of all that is happening, but you are likely observing not participating.  Even though you understand what is happening, you choose not to experience it.

“So it is you are starting to relax.  Not in the sense of negating your surroundings or needs, but instead feeling that others can protest, worry, or test themselves.  You are not interested.  For you are at a different place.

“You know who you are or are beginning to be.  Your new entity is no longer fully part of the 3D world.

“The 3D world seems to be dramatically emphasized now – as if all the pain and suffering is before your eyes.  Areas of suffering you have ignored or tried to ignore.  At the same time, you realize that such pain and suffering is no longer your job, your business.

“You forerunners are the ones with clear heads and concise ideas.  Not necessarily to save the world, but instead to live your life in comfort.

“How can you live your life in comfort when so many are suffering?  Such is so because you are no longer participating in the pain of others.

“Of course, such a stance seems to be wrong.  For are you not your brother’s keeper?  In 3D, you most definitely were your brother’s keeper for clearing the pain of others was instrumental in your caretaking duties.

“Those fully enmeshed in pain and suffering want you to join them.  Not because you can save them, but instead, so everyone is suffering.

“That last statement is difficult for many of you to understand.  But then, remember your past suffering and need to have others understand you via similar feelings.  And if they did not respond in kind, you searched for someone who could or would nurture you through the pain.

“Such is what is happening now.  Those fully enmeshed in pain and fear want you to feel the same.

“Instead, you are pulling away for you no longer play by those 3D rules, nor do you have a need to suffer.  You have cleared that path.  As the week goes on, you will experience more of the observer role – a new piece for you.  Yes, it is happening, but it is not your problem.”

That Guy with the Wings on His Feet

February 19, 2020

As it’s wont to do, planet Mercury turned around and started going Backwards 16 February 2020 (5pm PST).  This will be very difficult for you to verify, since Mercury is too close to the Sun to be seen most of the time, and “Backwards” in this context is kind of metaphorical.  Mercury symbolizes Communication, Awareness, Thought, and Analysis mostly.  Backwards (“Retrograde”) Mercury has a bad rap around travel, but if like the Angels we take travel delays and disruptions Lightly, we can still Fly.

A planet goes Backwards when it wants us to really Pay Attention to some Lesson it has in mind.  It crosses the same zone of the Zodiac thrice, to make sure we don’t Lose the Plot.  The Plot this month is about the Thinking we’ve been doing, and the Conclusions we’ve been drawing, about the way our Culture should work (Mercury thrice crossing the last few Degrees of Aquarius), and how we Respond to this Emotionally (Mercury thrice crossing the first dozen Degrees of Pisces).

Overzealous Emotions cause our Mentality to Misfire.  It’s one thing that some of us are Emotional Thinkers – when we’re Analyzing something, How We Feel about it is one of our most important criteria, and that’s just Who We Are.  But it’s quite another thing when something Triggers our Karmic Judgments and we lose all hope of Neutrality.  Neutrality after all is where we must be if we want to Change or Manifest anything.  For instance, if we try to Create Peace from a position of Anger, all we’re going to get is more Anger.  Trying to Create Peace from a posture of Bliss will probably only promote Denial.

And in the section of the Zodiac that Mercury crosses thrice, there sit a couple of dwarf planets that are likely to Trigger our Karma.  One of these is the symbol for Intrusive Memories (the as-yet-unnamed dwarf planet that we affectionately call “OR10”) which are usually Karmic.  The other stands for Abuse and Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus).  That’s almost always Karmicas well.  The timetable looks something like this…

  • 2 February – Mercury begins its first crossing (at 29 Aquarius)
    • 6 February – Mercury Triggers Intrusive Memories
    • 11 February – Mercury Triggers Abuse and Privilege Issues or Memories
  • 16 February – Mercury turns Backwards (at 13 Pisces)
    • 21 February – Mercury Triggers Abuse and Privilege Issues or Memories
    • 28 February – Mercury Triggers Intrusive Memories
  • 9 March – Mercury goes Forward again (at 29 Aquarius)
    • 22 March – Mercury Triggers Intrusive Memories
    • 29 March – Mercury Triggers Abuse and Privilege Issues or Memories
  • 30 March – Mercury finishes third crossing (at 13 Pisces)

When planets change their Direction, they Slooowww Dowwwn, Stop, and then slowly Accelerate again.  While they are Slowing and Stopping (ie, 16 February and 9 March), their Influence upon us is at its Strongest.

Do you have any record or recollections of what was going on for you around 6 or 11 February, give or take a day or two?  The usual astrological process is that this first crossing raises an Issue or Problem (we refer to this as a “Can-Opener”), which usually puts us into our Victim.  Then the second crossing (the “Exposition”), if we’re Awake and Responsive to it, Teaches us a lot about what’s really going down, and we can begin to see our own Role in it.  By the third crossing (the “Confidence-Builder”), if we were Awake at the second one, the original Issue or Problem recurs, but this time we Realize what’s happening, and we Handle it with Aplomb.

Mercury stutters like this three times a year, so we get a good deal of Practice with it.  Our Journey from Victim to Adept increases our Neutrality a lot, helping us to be more Objective and Effective Problem-Solvers.

If you happen to have a birth (“natal”) planet in the thrice-crossed Zone of a Backwardation, the Cosmic Headmistress is giving you a Special Lesson.  For instance, one reader has their birth planet that means Truth of the Heart (asteroid Aletheia) in the Zone of this Mercury trifecta, and that planet is in a Challenging Relationship (Square) to their birth planet that stands for their Soul (Uranus).  Birth-planet Relationships are with us for our entire Life, so the more Practice we get with them, the better.

So our reader may frequently run into Issues where they feel like the Desires of their Soul, and the Desires of their Heart, are in Conflict.  How can Soul and Heart be in Conflict?  Heart should Serve Soul, and do it Well.  But Karma can intervene and mess things up.  That makes it even more important to Practice with the Energy, and bring it into Consciousness, so they can Notice when the Karmic prompter is reminding them of their Lines, and Frankly, Not Give a Damn about what it is they’re Supposed To do or say.

Our reader’s Heart-Truth planet, with it’s Teasing Relationship with their Soul, is Triggered by Mercury on 4 February, 1 March, and 19 March.  The most important thing to remember about our birth-planet Relationships, is that they’re like a Graduate Seminar.  They aren’t Problems to be Solved, they’re Dramas to be Studied.  We don’t Solve Dramas, we just Learn how to Handle them a little better each time we deal with them.  They have no Clean Edges, they’re always Ragged.

Imagine you’re an fiction writer studying situations where a person’s Heart would lead them in a different direction than their Soul would, so you could write a realistic short story about their Adventures.  With that mindset, after several repetitions of this Pattern in your Life, you could write the script of your next episode of it.  That would probably help immensely to make it Easier for you to Step Out of that Role the next time those circumstances arose, and Enjoy playing the role of someone else in your script, or someone different entirely.

If we Endure our “favorite” Karmic – aka Educational – Drama once more and leave its Edges just a little less Ragged than the last time, then we’ve Succeeded Greatly, and we need to Acknowledge ourself with Celebration.  While we’re “still kickin’,” we’ll probably never know Why our Immortal Soul Chose to Experience a Lifetime with such a Drama in it.  We just have to Accept that it in fact Did, Trust its Wisdom, and try to be a good Student.

The more Conscious we can be about the Dramas hard-wired into our birth charts, the better, but we also have to remember that it’s not about Analysis (even when Mercury is being Compulsively Analytical), it’s about Experience.  We get a little more hip to our Dramas each time we Repeat them, whether we beat ourself up for Stumbling over them again, or Congratulate ourself for being Open to Learning more about them.  Analysis can give us “Book-Larnin’,” but it isn’t nearly multidimensional enough to give us Wisdom.  For that we need Experience.  That’s what Karma is all about – Inertia, Repetition, how to Use the Patterns we have to their Best Advantage, instead of being Victimized by them.

The Fives IV

October 26, 2019

This interview with Alberto Villoldo will be online free till 4pm PDT 27 October 2019.  It is also comprehensive, and as well introduces a couple of different and valuable Perspectives…

For instance, one of things that Alberto points out is that the Bliss molecule DMT, which promotes Healing, is built from Serotonin, which is mostly produced by our Gut Bacteria – if you haven’t killed them by taking antibiotics and not Restored them with Probiotics.  What he doesn’t say is that Glyphosate is an FDA-certified antibiotic and virtually all non-Organic Grains and Sugars are laced with Glyphosate because it’s also a desiccant that non-Organic agriculture typically sprays onto the plants just before harvest, in order to kill the foliage and make it easier to harvest the Grains and Sugars.  So every time you eat non-Organic Grain or Sugar, you Risk Closing yourself to Healing.

The Fives III

October 25, 2019

This is another hour and a half Hay House Heal Summit interview with (or lecture by) Bruce Lipton, which does an excellent job of encompassing Matter, Energy, mind, Matter, Energy, Healing, Love, Fear, Immunity, Belief, Longevity, Power, and just about anything else you can imagine.  I believe this one will be online free through 29 October 2019…

One comment…

At one point Bruce says we can’t be Open/Move Toward (Love/Heal) and be Closed/Move Away (Fear/Protect) at the same time.  Once you get good with your Mirrors, though, you actually can do Both/And, and is that ever Healing!  Next time someone very Manipulative calls you and you normally wouldn’t answer, hold up an imaginary wardrobe Mirror facing them, then pick up the phone.  Have a conversation with them, but every time you feel like you’re being led, just say “Oh” very Neutrally, and hold tight to your Mirror.  When I do that, they get very Confused, and I sweat profusely as my Body burns off Power-Give-Away Karma – it’s a Virtual Sauna.

Whom Do We Serve?

October 22, 2019

There’s what we Feel we Should or Must Do, and then there’s what we Want to Do.  Which to Choose?  That may be hard this week.

Hylonome (Self-Sovereignty) joins Saturn (The Most Important Thing) and the South Node (Karma, the Emotions you’d rather Die than Feel), Quincunx to asteroid Klotho in the 26 October 2019 (4am PDT) Klotho-Station chart.

It could well be more Complicated than that – we may also Want to Do some of our Shoulds or Musts.  Many or even most of our Shoulds and Musts are about Loyalty to a Vow we once made, and Loyalty usually Feels Good, especially to a Sacred Vow.

Stationary Klotho T-Squares (Challenges) the Opposition between dwarf planet Orcus (Vow-Making and -Breaking) and Neptune (which includes a Sense of the Sacred).  And of course the South Node always Opposes the North Node (our Mission), and Loyalty to our Mission Creates a very Deep Good Feeling.  But as an Opposition, it may feel like we have to make a Choice between Loyalty to our Mission and Loyalty to our Sacred Vow.

To make it even more Complicated, we may Feel a Strong Need to Act, to Do Something, either to Support our Loyalty to our Self, or to Support our Loyalty to our Vows.

Hylonome on Saturn-South Node will trigger Karma about Self-Betrayal.  Fortunately it’s Trine to Orcus, meaning there is Grace available if we Choose to Break Free of Self-Betrayal.  But the Nodal Axis (including Saturn-Hylonome on the rear end) is T-Squared (Challenged) by Mars (Action).

Fortunately, the chart tells us that it’s not really about Action, it’s about Awareness.

Frankly, the knee-jerk Karmic Reaction to Support our Vows is probably Stronger than the Subtle though Deep Desire to move toward our Mission and hence Support our Deep Self.  But the real Teaching here is about neither.  This is Karma, which means that it’s not really Present-Moment, it’s a shadow on the wall of the cave.  So we will almost certainly be Overreacting if we Act overtly to Support our Vows.

There is a Mystery School here, a Teaching about Paradox and Non-Action.  We’ll get the most Value from Observing the Stresses we’re Feeling, and their apparent Sources.  Of course we’ll get the most Value from Trusting our Mission more than our Vows – if they’re Karmic we know that they’re Obsolete anyway.  However, there’s a Real-Life Present-Moment Drama that’s Mirroring our Karmic Vows, and we Want to be Present and Lovingly Responsive for that Drama.

So we need Both/And, not Either/Or, and we need Awareness rather than Habitual Action.  The Action we most need to take is probably to Talk about what we’re Observing.  And most of all, we need to Avoid making Decisions and Trust that Grace will successfully finesse the knife-edge we feel like we’re walking on.  By remaining a Neutral Observer and Communicating about what we Observe, we can Allow the Universe to make Changes that are far more Subtle and far more Comprehensive than any Action of ours would have accomplished.

First, the chart is Sublimely Symmetric, meaning that the Energy this week is very Balanced, and as such it makes us very Aware of any Imbalance we’re Feeling.  We don’t want to Act to try to Restore our comfortable state of Imbalance, we want to Allow the Energy to Balance us, and Observe what that feels like.

Second, the Completely Symmetric Configuration is a Flying Squirrel, at the Heart of which is a Yin Gate (a Teaching about how the Real World is Paradoxical; it’s the Unreal mind that demands Logical Clarity).  The Central Axis of the Yin Gate is the Opposition between Lachesis (Change) and Eurydike (Trust).  Which is to say…

It’s about Trusting that the Dualistic mind – and the Ego Attached to it – does not have enough Breadth of Perspective to make better Changes than the Universe when the Universe’s Energy is In Balance.

Here’s the chart…

The Flying Squirrel’s nose is Lachesis, tail is Eurydike, hands are Klotho and Mars, feet are Neptune and South Node et al, and ears are North Node and Orcus.  Notice the Perfect Symmetry.  It looks Complicated, but it’s “just” a Yin Gate with T-Squares (red triangles) to the diagonals (red X) of the Golden Rectangle (blue box).

While Goddess Klotho cut the Cloth for your next TimeLine, Goddess Lachesis, who’s in charge here, Measured its Length.  The difference between Fate (Karma) and Choice (Liberation) is Conscious Awareness.  In many circumstances we interpret asteroid Lachesis as an Opportunity to Choose to Let Go of Karma “prematurely” – before our Fate would Let it Go.  But in the context of a Yin Gate, where the Objective is to move into Beginner’s Mind, especially where Lachesis is at the Head, we interpret it as the Opportunity to Watch how the Universe Restores Balance if we don’t Interfere, with the potential Goal of Recognizing when we are Out of Balance, and Learning how to Allow ourself to come Back Into Balance rather than trying to make the World match us by going Out of Balance.

The Yin Gate is the double Fingers of God (green wedges) pointing to Lachesis and Eurydike, creating the Dos Equis inside the Golden Rectangle (blue box) bounded by Orcus, North Node, Neptune, and South Node et al.  Any Golden Rectangle is interpreted through the diagonal Oppositions (red X), and the T-Squares amplify this interpretation (Action and New Beginnings).  While this is still relevant, in a Yin Gate the emphasis is on the Fingers of God – ie, the Central Axis, Lachesis Opposite Eurydike.

While Lachesis (Change) Heads the major Configuration, the Stationary Klotho is the raison d’être for the chart.  So New Beginnings are the type of Change that we’re talking about.  That reinforces the Mystery School or Beginner’s Mind element of the Yin Gate, making it all the more Important that we Avoid Preconceptions and Nullify Conclusions.  The mind knows only Duality, and this is about Multidimensional Unity.

The Squirrel’s hands and feet also make a Square Fez, and a Fez runs on its Quincunx (green) diagonals (Mars-Neptune and Klotho-South Node et al).  Between the Dos Equis and these green diagonals, the Quincunxes rule the Configuration, and Quincunxes are about Curiosity.  Not the kind that covets an Answer, but the kind that’s Awed by the Unexplained Glory of it all.  That is…

Strongly Resist any Temptation you have to Figure It Out or to Believe you Understand what’s going on.  There are Things To Learn here, so we have to Pay Attention, and not jump to Conclusions or lean on Preconceptions.  We can Summarize what we Observed in November.  In the interim, just note what we’re Observing as we go.  Let’s see, white head, black wings and body, white tail, big bird – Bald Eagle!  Be Conscious of jumping to Conclusions like that.  Yes, it looks like a Bald Eagle, but what if it’s not?  What if you’ve never seen this Critter before?  Keep bringing yourself back to Curiosity!  Naming the World stops Growth in its tracks.

Nothing is Out of Balance here except our own Karma that is being Let Go Of, if we Allow it to be and don’t try to take charge.  Watch and Listen.  Report what you See and Hear, but be careful to Avoid making up Stories to fit the clues.  If we rely on what we Know already, we’ll miss this Fabulous Opportunity to Learn more about How the Universe Works and to Liberate ourself from our Limitations.  Everything we Learned in school was Wrong.

2019 Q4 and 2020 Q1 Stations

October 16, 2019


Now that we have a “week off” more or less, let’s look at the remainder of 2019 and the first quarter of 2020.  We’ll use several “shorthand” abbreviations or symbols…

  • Â.Mickie stands for asteroid Mickie
  • Ð.Goofy stands for dwarf planet Goofy
  • Š/ stands for Station, when a planet’s Energy is especially Strong
  • Î stands for Initiation of a New Cycle between two planets

Below we list only the Stations (plus one major Initiation), or the times when a planet’s Energy is Strongest and most Distinct or Identifiable.  When there are several planets Stationary at the same time, though, it will likely be hard to Distinguish the Separate Influence of each planet, because their Energies will be Merged.  When two planets are Stationary at the same time, it’s as if they’re Conjunct.

In general, we Experience the Energy of a Station before it happens, as the Energy Intensifies until it is “Complete” (the planet starts moving in the other Direction), and then it drops off rapidly.  In cases where we aren’t Neutral to the Energy, we may make Decisions about it, and those Decisions (Orcus) will carry the Energy over into the time following the Station, possibly even eventually Creating new Karma.

For instance, the Energy of asteroid Moira is about Fate and Choice – Fate in situations where our Karma is still Unconscious…

Someone else is doing something to me

and Choice in situations where we’ve brought the Karma into Consciousness…

Oh!  I’m really not Experiencing what they seem to be Doing, I’m Experiencing my own lifelong Habitual Reaction to it!  They don’t even know I’m here!

Once we’re Conscious, we can Choose to Respond Constructively, rather than Reacting from our Victimhood.

So if we’re Insulted or Angered by something someone Says or Does, and we don’t Realize that it’s our Button that’s been pushed, we might Decide that this person is not “on our side,” and make them (or worse, people like that) a Lifelong Enemy.  And if we stay in 3D (which is likely if we haven’t Cleared our Karma), we’re likely to continue the same Conflict into Other Lifetimes.  You can tie up all Deviations from Whirled Peas and all of World History in this simple wrapper, and there won’t be much left to Clean Up.

On the other hand, we might Feel Insulted or Angry, but if we Recognize that it’s our Feeling, we may Choose to Agree to Disagree, or even move to a different Meeting, but we won’t make it into a Capital Offense.

Rose Quartz.

There are a number of ways to guess how soon we’ll begin to Experience a Station before it’s Complete, but a useful rule of thumb is…

  • A week for the four outer planets, asteroid Bee-Zed, and the dwarf planets except dwarf planet Ceres (that is, everyone with orbits longer than ten years)
  • Several days for the three inner planets, the asteroids, and dwarf planet Ceres (orbits between one and ten years)
  • Since “Tropical” astrology (the kind we use) sees events from the Perspective of Earth, neither Earth nor Sun nor Moon are ever Stationary

We might also begin to Experience the Energy of the next Station as soon as the current Station is Complete.  Our General Sensitivity is obviously relevant.  And if a Station occurs on one of our natal planets, we’ll React more Strongly and probably sooner.

If we want an Astrological Rule rather than Empirical Guidance, the usual Sensitivity projects that the Impact begins when the Stationing planet is less than one Degree from its Exact Station.  However, some of the newer dwarf planets (such as Sedna) move less than one Degree in a year, which would mean they’re Always Stationary.  And yes, we can certainly interpret that to mean that Fear is Omnipresent, as was common Before the Current Era (ie, BCE or BC)!  If we’re in the Habit of Converting Fear to Power (with Kegels for instance), then this is a Powerful interpretation!

But using lengthy Stations can give us so much overlap that we’re never sure what’s happening.

Asteroids usually take about four days to move one Degree, but when they’re slowing down to Stop and Turn Around, they’ll be much slower.  For instance, rather than 23-26 October for the first Klotho Station, you might look at 11-26 October (the one-Degree range) instead, and Pay a lot more Attention if you have a natal planet near the Ides of Gemini.

Bottom Line, feel free to start my date ranges sooner.  But if you’re still Experiencing Strong Energy after the Station, in order to Avoid accumulating new Karma you want to look over the last several days to see if you’ve made any Decisions based on your Discomfort with the Energy of the Station.  If so, Own your Discomfort and Revert your Decisions.

Initiations are Conjunctions, and Conjunctions act like Stations in that we Experience the Energy increasing in Strength as the Exact Conjunction approaches, then it drops off rapidly, assuming we’ve Captured the available Learning to keep, and not the Energy.  Again, we want to Pay Attention to Discomfort before the Initiation, and Work on Ourself to Own and Revert if necessary after the Initiation.  What we Learn from any astroevent is ours to keep.  They’re all Teachers.

Initiations Differ from Conjunctions, however, in that they also Begin a new Cycle, and the Energy that’s Born at the Initiation – including your Reactions to and Learnings from the Initiation – will Endure on some level for the entire Cycle, whether the Cycle is Initiated by a New Moon (28 days) or by Saturn and Pluto (30-some years).

We’ve added a few words of preliminary interpretation, but of course the actual interpretation will flow from a chart drawn for the Station, which we don’t normally do till we’re getting close to the event.  The preliminary interpretation will probably hang True, but it may not be The Most Important interpretation.

The short interpretations below are Dimensions, not Directions. The Direction is up to us.  For instance, in the first few days of November Our Perspective on our Vitality may Improve or Decline.  If the latter, it’s Identifying Karma for us to Let Go Of.  If we Allow our Victimhood to Reinforce the Decline, we Lose.  If we Notice the Decline and Realize that we have the Power to Heal (Tapping, Poor-Sweethearting, PIAVAing, Plan-Executing, Invoking the Unseen Therapist, et al), we Win.

If Our Perspective on our Vitality Improves, Gratitude is Relevant.  You don’t want to use the Improvement to pad your Ego – it’s not your Ego that Heals, though it can certainly Catalyze Healing, and increasing Self-Love is always Valuable, but not for Cause.  If Self-Love depends on Cause, it will never become Unconditional.  Self-Love is the Natural Condition we Strive to Return to, and we can certainly Congratulate ourself for Work Well Done when we step in that Direction.  But it’s Grace that Heals, and to Welcome and Encourage Grace, lift out the “c” and drop in a “titud,” then give it plenty of Exercise.

We aren’t adding the Moons and Sign Changes to this list, because they have different orientations in Time, and they would just make the list overlong.  The above are what we regard as The Most Important astroevents of the next six months.  We’ll table the Moons and Sign Changes separately, and maybe add the Out-of-Bounds periods, since the Moon starts going Out-of-Bounds in March for the first time in a decade.  Then if we get time, we can combine the lists to make a complete calendar.

Still Chopping Cherry Trees 3

October 13, 2019

As we’ve mentioned previously, the Digital Age occupies two Centuries while the every-twenty-years Jupiter-Saturn Conjunctions occur in Air Signs.  The Industrial Age spanned the time when these Conjunctions occurred in Earth Signs.  There is a toggle between Ages – after eighteen or so Conjunctions in Earth, there was one in Air (1980), then one back in Earth (2000), then eighteen or so in Air.  The Digital Preview of 1980-2000 spanned, almost to the day, the time between the introduction of the IBM PC and the Dot-Com Crash.  The fact that computers reached practical desktop size at the dawn of the Preview could be a clue that Decentralization and Individual Creativity may indeed be part of the full Digital Age.

We’re in the last three months of the Industrial Debriefing that spans 2000-2020.  The Industrial Debriefing allows us to sort through the Meaning of the Industrial Age, and Decide what to take with us into the next Age and what to leave behind.  We’re getting down to the wire.  One characteristic of the Industrial Age was the development of the Wage Slave.  The decline of Unions, the development of the Gig Economy, the demise of pensions, and the return to a Dickensian economy, all imply that we may be leaving that behind.

Today, among the planets we track, there are 8 in Air Signs, but 15 in Earth Signs, pinning our Attention on our Decisions about which Karmic Habits to Abandon and which to Maintain.

Seven of the Earth 15 are in Capricorn, Creative Earth.  Capricorn basically means Just Fix It – these are the things we have to Just Fix if we want to transcend 3D…

  • Dwarf planet Quaoar, symbolizing our Survival Instincts.  We’ve seen how the end of the Industrial Age has decimated manufacturing jobs.  Coding will survive for a while, till the Robots take over it as well.  As anyone who’s ever tried to work there knows, social services are Poverty Country, until your Culture begins to Value Hupers more than Dollars, if it ever does.
  • Dwarf planet Hylonome, or Self-Sovereignty.  Is the Centralization of Power a permanent feature of Huperity, or will the End of the Patriarchy promote Decentralization?  Some pundits see the Blockchain accomplishing that, and its existence suggests that there may well be a Trend toward Decentralization of Power.  Centralization makes Self-Sovereignty much more Difficult.
  • The South Node, our Karmic Inertial Baggage, including our Held Emotions.  As long as we continue to Avoid our Held Emotions, it will always be Us Against Them, as Them is where our Intolerable Held Emotions appear to reside.  Any of us stuck in that kind of Duality will never make it out of 3D.
  • Saturn, aka The Most Important Thing.  Do we know what that is?  Well, at the moment Saturn is still Conjunct the South Node, so the Most Important Thing is Embracing our Held Emotions.
  • Asteroid Hopi represents Respect For All Things, which is more than a nice platitude.  Because We Are All One and All Mirrors for One Another, any Disrespect for anything is a departure from Unconditional Self-Love, which will keep us stuck in 3D.
  • Dwarf planet Chariklo is about Self-Doubt and Self-Confidence.  Thought operates in Duality; Intuition is Multidimensional, so it should be Obvious that we need to operate from our Intuition to stay in 5D.  Self-Doubt is a Thought.  We need to Learn to Trust our Intuition.
  • Pluto is about Changing Paradigms, which is what is Happening as we move from the Industrial to the Digital, from Obeying the Patriarchy to Trusting our Intuition, and from 3D to 5D.  Pluto doesn’t allow foot-draggingl; if we Resist the Changes, Pluto will just Drag us into the New Paradigm.  We’ll be much better off Surrendering to it.

Virgo is the Mutable Earth Sign – Mutable as in Mutation, or Change.  Like the Changing Lines in the I Ching.  Virgo, which stands for Ego Death, holds five planets here.  Of course we’ll need to Endure Ego Deaths if we are to move beyond our Old Industrial Paradigm…

  • Asteroid Nemesis itself means Ego Death, as She was the Goddess who Punished those who Felt Guilt (or should have), and Guilt Requires an Ego Death.  In Virgo it’s a Double Whammy – just what the Witch Doctor ordered for a Big Change in the Zeitgeist.
  • Dwarf planet Orcus is about Pattern-Breaking.  He was an Etruscan God whose job it was to Beat Up Oath-Breakers.  But our Obsolete Oaths are what Create Karma and Unconscious Limitation, as we Forget the Oath but the Habits we built to Serve the Oath remain for Lifetimes.  We need to enter New Ages with Clean Slates.
  • Asteroid Sappho symbolizes Self-Love.  As we mentioned earlier (see Hopi), Unconditional Self-Love is a prerequisite for Ascension.
  • Asteroid Asteroid Juno is about the Growing Edge of Consciousness, and any major Growth in Consciousness is likely to require an Ego Death, so Juno in Virgo can Accelerate our Growth.
  • Moira represents Fate.  Fate is what happens to us when we are Unconscious of our Karmic Patterns.  When we Grow our Consciousness enough to Recognize our own Patterns, we substitute Choice for Fate.  We can’t follow our Intuition if we don’t have Choice.

And finally, in addition to Uranus, two other planets are joined at the hip in Taurus, asteroid Vesta and dwarf planet Sedna.  Together they stand for all of our Unconscious Beliefs that have their Roots in Fear.  Even many of our original “Choices” to make those Ancient Karmic Vows were Motivated by Necessity or Fear.  They may have been the only Choice we had if we wanted to eat, which wasn’t a Choice at all.  Taurus is Fixed Earth – like Crystal, very Difficult to Change…

But very Powerful.  And as you know, Uranus (Soul) is also early in Fixed-Earth Sign Taurus (ie, Descending into Flesh).  That in itself has been, and will continue to be, Requiring Ego Deaths and Major Changes in our Self-Concept.  An Iteration of Ego can last anywhere from Moments to Lifetimes, but Soul is Immortal.  Most of us to one degree or another Identify with our Physical Body.  We can touch that, and we’ve Learned to Trust our Sense of Touch.  Learning to Trust an Immaterial and Invisible Soul is more Difficult, usually Requiring Lifetimes of Meditation and Study.  We all have many of those Lifetimes, or we wouldn’t be here on Earth at this Time.  We just need to Open Up to them.
