Global Climate Change

January 15, 2022

Bob (in Australia) writes…

“In reply to: It’s possible that the February Quaoar-Pholus Initiation will bring ‘The Mother of All’ environmental catastrophes, or even ‘just’ a shift in the Collective Consciousness, so the Economy-Is-Stalling, COVID-Is-Mauling, Prices-Are-Appalling headlines will be replaced by Sky-Is-Falling headlines, because the 1% already own all of the media channels and politicians, and will move toward greater ad revenue and campaign contributions. This is only the Initiation of the ‘Birds singing joyously’ Cycle, and the Real Action isn’t likely to occur till the Waxing Square, which isn’t till 2081. Till then, the propaganda from those who are heavily invested in the old Oil-Driven Cycle will be overbearing, even if they’ve learned to disguise it as ‘Environmentalism,’ which they already are to some extent. It falls on us to Adapt – what is it that WE are Denying, to Believe that our own Survival, and that of our Planet and Species as we know them, depends on something as flibbertigibbet as politicians and news media? Mom Dirt could wipe them out with an Orbital Shrug, a Flick of her Magnetic Wrist, a Krakatoa-scale Volcanic Eruption, or a Twist in the Atlantic Currents that would put the new North Pole halfway between London and New York.

I’ve got a note from a previous blog to remind me of the exact conjunction of Quaoar and Pholus which is 8/2/2023 at 9 degrees Capricorn but you indicate this cycle will be initiated soon in February. As it is such a crucial cycle, I would dearly love if you could show us the chronological events relating to this cycle into the future and what we might expect accordingly through to the “Real Action” you indicate.
Namaste

I hear you! Astrology is a game of always refining your estimates. Even the online software seems to use slightly different formulae for different levels of precision, as I often get slightly different answers in a by-minutes retrieval, than I get in a by-days or by-hours retrieval. I too was thinking that the actual Initiation wasn’t till 2023, till I looked it up again for 2022, perhaps with finer resolution than I had looked before, or perhaps I just misread the tables earlier, which is easy to do.

Or maybe Mother Gaia moved the date up and had her Friends in the publishing industry adjust all the emphemerides (and then getting their minds wiped or course) because Huperity wasn’t Paying enough Attention. Free Will works both ways.

I usually dial up years, then months, then hours, then minutes, and by then I often need to use “decimal degrees” because slower planets move less than an arcsecond per minute, so they might be in the same [Degree : arcminute : arcsecond] for hours and sometimes even days.

Here’s the ephemeris by minute for the 2022 Initiation… http://www.true-node.com/eph1/?inputNumber=pholus%2Cquaoar&day=22&month=2&year=2022&time=03&zone=GMT+0&interval_num=1&interval=minute&lines=6&.submit=Get+Ephemeris&calendar=Gregorian&zodiac=Tropical&origin=Geocentric&lighttime=Apparent&clock=Universal+Time&zodsec=Decimal+Degrees&longitude=on .
And the ephemeris by month for the next 40 years at… http://www.true-node.com/eph1/?inputNumber=pholus%2Cquaoar&day=1&month=1&year=2013&time=00&zone=GMT+0&interval_num=1&interval=month&lines=800&.submit=Get+Ephemeris&calendar=Gregorian&zodiac=Tropical&origin=Geocentric&lighttime=Apparent&clock=Universal+Time&zodsec=D%B0M%27S&longitude=on&distance=on&speed=on .

If you use True-Node much, I recommend that you send donations in US$ to Jonathan Dunn at 1977ub<at>gmail<dot>com, and while you’re at it, ask him to please get a certificate to shift True-Node from http: to https: to increase security. Once I get a date and UT (Universal Time, the Time that was formerly known as GMT or Greenwich Meridian Time) from True-Node, I use Serennu to get the locations of other planets near the same Degree… https://serennu.com/astrology/ephemeris.php?inday=22&inmonth=2&inyear=2022&inhours=3&inmins=15&insecs=00&insort=deg30&z=t&gh=g&addobj=638%2C514107%2C490%2C259.249521%2C2320%2C12927%2C158&inla=&inlo=&h=P . Again, if you use Serennu much, I recommend that you send donations to Serennu at serennu<dot>com in UK£. Note that the Exact Conjunction occurs at 3:02 UT in True-Node, and 3:15 in Serennu – we’re always working with Approximations, or something like that.

The beginning of the New Quaoar-Pholus Cycle is a Looong process. Compare the Longitude of the Pholus RX Station each year, to the Longitude of Quaoar on the same date – it’s 421 years before their Separating Conjunctions are more than three Degrees apart!2 In other words, this struggle will be going on for Generations. One scienterrific Perspective is that if Huperity ever gets a handle on the CO2 Cycle, it will discover that the H2O Cycle is many times as powerful as the CO2 Cycle at heating the atmosphere…

  • 1 Probably a “coincidence,” but a bow and Namaste to Douglas Adams anyway.
  • 2 That is, beyond our usual Sensitivity or “Orb.” Pholus, a Centaur (ie Orbit is Elliptical), is near Aphelion (far out), while Quaoar, a Cubewano, is near Perihelion (close in). A planet is called a “Centaur” if it has an elongated orbit between Pluto and Jupiter, and may be a (temporarily) captured Comet. Pholus’s Elliptical Orbit is 92 years, running between 9 and 32 AU (An “AU” or “Astronomical Unit” is equal to the distance between the Earth and the Sun). A “Cubewano” is a Trans-Neptunian minor planet (“TNO” or Trans-Neptunian “Object”) out beyond Pluto, whose Orbit is not pushed around by Neptune’s Gravitational Forces. Quaoar’s Orbit is 289 years, and fairly round, between 42 and 46 AU.

My Experience is that the First Exact Conjunction3 of a Cycle sees the Unexpected Event that really gets our Attention and that seems at the time to be an Intractable Problem – this is the Initiation of the New Cycle. I’ve never seen prior almost-Conjunctions have a heck of a lot of time-specific impact, though on the scale of years we’ve certainly seen the typical pre-Initiation clamor arise against the “Blah..Blah..Blah” of the Old-Cycle Defenders. The subsequent Conjunctions, of which there can be many, half of which are Retrograde, explicate the Problem and allow us to get a Handle on it, if we’re Focused on the New Cycle and willing to do the Grunt Work behind the scenes till the Waxing Square. Most people will be Focused on trying to Protect their Investments in the Old Cycle and Greenwashing it.

  • 3 As opposed to prior, “Applying” Almost-Exact Conjunctions, and subsequent “Separating” Exact Conjunctions when they repeat. In the case of any Transiting (Current) Hard Angles that repeat, the First Exact one is the “Can-Opener” of the sequence. Note that “Applying” and “Separating” apply to individual Angles, while “Waxing” and “Waning” apply to Cycles. An “Inexact” Angle is one that’s within Sensitivity or Orb, but which doesn’t actually Consummate.

This suggests that the 21 February Initiation will Surprise us. Maybe suddenly everyone will realize that we need to Reanimate Nature before we can Change anything…

Those kinds of sudden Unimagined Mass Psychic Shifts do happen. Ursula Leguin describes it pretty well in her short book The Lathe of Heaven. Maybe the Oil and Coal Industries will Collapse or Capitulate, Mansion and Cinema will newly Discover their lost shards of Huperity amidst their vast Avarice, and all of them will Learn to Install or Manage Solar Panels and Windmills and get down to Work. Maybe One of those new solid-electrolyte Batteries that last 100 hours and 500 miles on a charge, recharge in five minutes, and don’t Explode, will hit the market and suddenly everyone will be on the same page. Or maybe the Shinolavirus Omega Deviant will scare the BlahBlahBlah out of everybody. Mother N has already sent us a preview of what could happen, and the Perp wasn’t even the North Koreans (see https://spaceweather.com/archive.php?view=1&day=15&month=01&year=2022)…

A Pleasant or Very Shocking Surprise might create an instant version of that “well-established culture” that everyone “accepts unreservedly” and causes not just the Incarcerated Birds, but everyone, to sing Joyously…

Everyone except the Power-Hungry Narcissist Fear-Peddlers of course. Or maybe we’ll discover that Global Climate Change, the Shinolavirus, Imperialism, Supply Chains, Inflation, Hypersonic Missiles, the Landings, Misinformation, and Toilet Paper weren’t really the Problem all along, only the peripheral symptoms of the Real Problem.

Scary Lunar Eclipse III

November 20, 2021

A reader writes…

“I’ve noticed you often put your own spin on the Sabian Symbols and I do find Dane’s take on some of them impenetrable… Wondering what you think about the symbol for 13 Sadge which is the degree of the Total Solar Eclipse on 4 December 2021? It’s one of five or ten of the 360 Degrees that kinda scare me lol.”

Sadge 12, “A flag turning into an Eagle turning into a Rooster heralding the dawn: The spiritualization and promotion of a New Age by minds sensitive to its precursory manifestations,” is the anthem for the current century, as it was the location of the Pluto-Chiron Initiation on 30 December 1999, Pluto implying Compulsion and Chiron implying Despair. Lord knows the Media (maybe we should call it the Minia), and the Hupers it describes, give us plenty of reason to Despair. But the flip side of Despair is Miracles. Someone (some say it was Einstein) pointed out that “We can’t solve a problem using the same thinking that we used to define it.” The Dualistic Mind loves to grind away at a perceived problem, never getting past the problem and its polar opposite, which is often worse.

Getting out of Dualism leaves us in a World with many shades of many colors, which we can see from many Angles. In this World it’s very easy to find many new ways of thinking about whatever problem we were grinding on. How to exit Duality? Not easy.1 Sometimes all we need is What If?What If We Did Know the Solution? for instance, though that may just deepen our Attachment to Duality, because the Mind is so eager to think it’s Either/Or, One or the Other. What If We Weren’t Attached to Outcome? might allow us to explore more options.

Another approach is What Am I Feeling Right Now? And Where in My Body Do I Feel it? 2 Watch to see how difficult it is to stop yourself from attributing Cause to your Feeling. Stay with the Feeling. Exaggerate it, Amplify it. It’ll tell you more about your “problem” than Thinking ever would. It may tell you that your “problem” is more about some Experience you had in the third grade, than about whatever’s going on in the Now. The word “Feeling” applies to both Emotion and Sensation, for a good reason. Anchoring our Feelings in our Body can help us stop ourself from Thinking about them. Thoughts about our Feelings are seldom Present-Moment, and almost always lead us into the Tules.

  • 1 Even harder to escape Duality’s two stepchildren, Blame and Cause and Effect. See if you can last an hour without ever attributing Blame to anyone or anything. Got it? Try a day, then a week, then a month. Then see if you can go an hour without ever using Cause and Effect. Cause and Effect works pretty well if you’re seeing the World through 2D glasses. Add six more blind people and see if the seven of you can figure out what the Elephant caused and whether you can Blame Him for it.
  • 2 Mental, Physical, Emotional, Spiritual aren’t different “Levels” of Reality, they’re different Perspectives on Reality, which is Unitary and Multifarious – Undifferentiated and Multidimensional. Seem Oxymoronic? Yes it is, in 2D. But 2D isn’t Reality, it’s the Limitation of the Observing Mind.

In our 12-Sagittarius Flag-Eagle-Rooster anthem, Flag is a symbol for Either/Or Idealism, Eagle a symbol for Broad Perspective, and Rooster a symbol for Waking Up or Becoming Conscious.

The next Degree, 13 Sagittarius, “A widow’s past is brought to light: The Karma of past actions as it affects opportunities presented by a new cycle.” We often think of Karma as Negative, first because it’s an affront to the Ego’s Belief that it’s in Control, and second because it’s the Negative Karma that befuddles us and demands our Attention. We often don’t even Notice our Positive Karma, and when we do, our Ego usually attribute its Cause to our Present-Moment Hubris.

But Karma is Neutral. It’s just Inertia, Habits. Besides, it’s Dead. It no longer Grasps Us, We Grasp It, because that’s what we’re in the Habit of Doing. The notion that Karma is External to us is a Political Manipulation designed to keep us in Slavery. We only need to do one thing – become Conscious of our Karma. When we do that, we replace Fate with Choice.

Next time you Fear Repetition of an Old Pattern, Name it, Describe it, Learn to Recognize its early Signs, and when they occur, Choose an Alternative. Karma Died in 2012, when Time Ended – except in our Habits! Cause and Effect is Null and Void without Time. The Operant Principle in the New World is Intuition. The more illogical, the better. Logic is 2D, the Real World is Many-D. When your Intuition is Illogical, it just means that it’s cutting through invisible corners. When you’re trying to Manifest something you’ve never Manifested before, you can’t do it by Repeating your Old Patterns.

If we React to the 13 Sadge symbol, the first thing to notice is that we’re probably Feeling Guilt, afraid we’ll Get Caught. So our first task is to find that Guilt in our Body, and Love the Hell out of it. Fear is Hard and Cold, Love is Soft and Warm – we Imagine Softening and Warming that place in our Body where we Feel the Guilt. Cupping our hand over it is an easy way to Warm it. Stay with that Softening and Warming, Follow it if it Moves, and return to it once more than the Mind wanders, until the Guilt is replaced in the Body by Self-Love and Self-Respect.

Twelve Sadge says we’re heading for Enlightenment. Thirteen Sadge says we’ll have to Clear away impediments to our Self-Love to get from the Dualistic Flag to the All-Seeing Eagle. We all have plenty of Work to do on this. Asking, What Am I Feeling in the Present Moment? and rigorously keeping our Thoughts about what we’re Feeling out of that equation is one key.

So, now that we’re back in the Present Moment, we can look again at the current Lunar Eclipse, noticing that the Mystery School it Illuminates is focused on an Argument between Our Forbidden Genius and Our Unlimited Potential.3 We can Feel (Intuitively) the Unlimited Potential in our impending Enlightenment, but the Childhood Punishment4 that our Genius received for being so Out There and frightening our Significant Adults, is yelling Yes But pretty loudly. It may be Guilt or even Shame if our Punishment was severe enough to reprogram us, or it may just be a Voice, Remembering the past consequences of Stepping Out of Line, saying Wait a Minute, Is This Really Worth It?

In his wonderful book The Big Leap (from Excellence to Genius), Gay Hendricks describes four Barriers to Embracing our Unlimited Potential. Feeling fundamentally flawed is one. If that’s a Story we tell ourself when we Lament our lack of Fulfillment, Find it in your Body and bring it up into Consciousness. The second is breaking our Family of Origin’s spoken or unspoken Rules or Expectations. The third is Feeling like we’re a Burden, and Success would make us a bigger Burden. And the fourth is Outshining somebody, especially someone in your FOO or someone you greatly admire.

In order to Lift the Global Consciousness of our Species out of its Addiction to its Mod Cons5 or paralyzing Colonial Poverty, we all6 need to be operating from our Genius. But we as Hupers are addicted to the Status Quo, mightily in Resistance to Change. Even if we’re totally Committed, we almost always continue to have Unconscious Resistance. To Heal that we need to bring it up into Consciousness, and Intensely Following our Feelings in our Body is an excellent way to start doing that.

So let’s look into this Present-Moment Resistance more deeply, using the Metaphor of the 19 November 2021 Lunar Eclipse. The Unlimited Potential side is bolstered by very strong Intuition.7 Our Unlimited Potential unstuck itself from it’s own Immutable Karma between 2000 and 2002, and it’s been Exploring New Alternatives ever since.8 Next July it tests the Waters of Nurturing, and Dedicates itself to Nurturance in late May 2023, for the next two decades.9 It wouldn’t hurt to see this as a major doorway into the Sympathy and Understanding, Harmony and Trust Abounding portion of the Age of Aquarius.10

The Forbidden Genius side has several allies. It’s Supported by the Galactic Leadership, and bolstered by Opportunities to Let Go of Guilt and to Grow our Consciousness.11 We’ve gradually been Letting Go of Inhibitions to our Genius for the last quarter-century, and started getting Serious about Liberating it in early 2020. Like it or not, we Fully Committed to Setting It Free a fortnight ago, on 6 November 2021. This Liberation phase will take eighteen years to complete.12

  • 3 Opposition between dwarf planets Ixion and Chaos; see chart in previous post.
  • 4 Which is almost certainly Karmic.
  • 5 As they say in England – short for Modern Conveniences.
  • 6 Or at least a hundred of us Monkeys, or maybe 1% of us (https://www.tm.org/blog/maharishi/maharishi-on-the-1-effect/) or the square root of 1% of us (https://davidleffler.com/2011/terrorism-trends/), which is on the order of 9,000 folks. See also https://www.heartmath.org/articles-of-the-heart/the-math-of-heartmath/coherence/ and https://globalcoherencepulse.org/archive-2020/ and https://drjoedispenza.com/blogs/dr-joes-blog/reality-is-determined-by-collective-networks-of-observers.
  • 7 Dwarf planet Chaos Conjunct dwarf planet Asbolus (Channeling), which is Out of Bounds (Strong).
  • 8 Chaos leaving Taurus and testing the Breeze in Gemini during July-October 2000, May-December 2001, and entering Gemini “for good” in March 2002.
  • 9 Chaos leaves Flibbertigibbet Gemini and explores Nurturing Cancer from 20 July to 19 December 2022 – including the next federal election in the US, moving into Cancer “for good” on 28 May 2023. It leaves Cancer and tests Leo from September 2042 till January 2043 and from July 2043 to April 2044, committing fully to Leo in May 2044.
  • 10 Much of the rest of Aquarius is about Idealism and Polarity; Aquarius is Fixed Air, or Frozen Mind, more or less the epitome of Duality. The Age of Aquarius also begins with the 200-year Digital Age, where Robotics, Surveillance, and Technology completely remake Society, just as the Industrial Revolution converted Feudal Society to Wage Slavery. It’s up to us to Choose the Harmony Etc. side of Aquarius, and it’s easy to see these Energies Emerging, in the Black Lives Matter demonstrations and the #MeToo Movement, for instance, and probably the current refusal of us peons to work our butts off for less than a Living Wage. I’m not sure that Power über Alles, the current stance of the Stodge Movement, counts as “Idealism.” It’s more like Egoism.
  • 11 Respectively, Conjunct the Galactic Center, and asteroids Nemesis and Juno.
  • 12 Ixion trialed walking on hot coals during December 1995-May 1996, and entered Let-It-Go Sagittarius “for good” in October 1996. It began exploring Just-Fix-It Capricorn in February-May 2020 and December-July 2020-21, and Committed to Capricorn at 5:33 pm PDT on 6 November 2021. It tests Aquarius from February to July 2039, and enters completely in December 2039.

It’s a Tautology that no one Changes the World without violating Social Norms.

So yes, our Genius, which wouldn’t be Genius if it was everyday, is Scary. If we’re too Early getting out on the Front Lines, the Establishment will mow us down and be proud of Protecting Lawn Order, even brainwashing their young AR15-toting punks to do the job for them gleefully. That’s Real Life, and we remember it well from how many Lifetimes? The Historical Karmic Energy behind it is Immense. If our Genius isn’t Activist, the Unusual is always a Risk, whether in Science, Art, Business, or any other Field. We may be Acclaimed then dumped, or Laughed at, or, if we aren’t done Letting Go of our Karmic and Historical Punishment, we may be Banished. Multiple Failures are almost assured before we find the right Lock for our Key.

We can’t forget that this Argument between our Forbidden Genius and our Unlimited Potential, is a Mystery School.13 That means that the “Solution” to this “problem” presented to us is a Paradox. It won’t work to approach it with our Minds. We need to use our Intuition or our Heart instead.

  • 13 The Chaos-Ixion Opposition is the central axis of a Yin Gate, an Opposition bisecting the short side of a Golden Rectangle, shown in the chart in the previous post as the vertical blue rectangle formed by the Full Moon (Eclipse) axis and the Opposition from Pluto-Chariklo (Compulsion and Self-Confidence) to Cyllarus (who Died in the warfare where Chariklo’s husband Chiron was wounded “unhealably”). So there’s a lot of Grief involved. However, the Grief evolves into a Karma-Clearing Rebirth (asteroid Karma Conjunct dwarf planet Haumea T-Square to the Opposition). It’s a Challenge (T-Square), so we need to be Honest and Complete with the Grief.

Scary Lunar Eclipse II

November 18, 2021

Sandwiched between the Storm of Sign Changes 14-21 November 2021 (previous post) and the Gonggong-Nessus Abuse Review 20-25 November, all of which tickle the Sign Cusps, the 19 November (12:58 am PST) Dang-Near Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon chart does a good job of summarizing the whole Pickle1

💥 The first thing to notice is the Moon-Sedna Merger. Sedna is the Star of a complex Inuit story, Goddess of the Sea and of the marine Critters that have always fed the Inuit. The dwarf planet Sedna has an orbit of over eleven thousand years, compared to Pluto’s two hundred fifty years. It takes eight minutes for Light to travel from the Sun to Earth. In the far reaches of Sedna’s orbit, it takes five and a half years for the Sun’s Light to arrive. It’s quite cold out there, and our anthem that Fear is Cold and Hard while Love is Soft and Warm fits here.

A powerful Shaman disguised himself as an everyday Inuit guy, and asked Her father for Sedna’s hand in marriage. But once her father realized that Her suitor was really a Giant Bird, the father tried to rescue Her from his nest. Enraged, the Bird-Shaman rose a storm and attacked their fleeing boat. In his Terror, the father threw Sedna overboard, and when She clung to the side of the boat, cut off Her fingers. Her fingers became the Seals, and She sank to the bottom, where She still Lives, commanding the Sea Critters. Before each hunt, a Shaman is sent into the Sea to comb Her hair, placating Her rage so She’ll send some of Her Critters to be hunted. A Mermaid representing Feminine Rage and Masculine Terror.

We interpret Sedna as Converting Fear to Power, and we could equally consider it Converting Rage to Power. We usually advise Kegels as a mechanical process that will Convert Fear to Power. Kegels slow down Time, and that could also Convert Rate to Power.

💥 The second thing to notice (though it’s not in the chart) is that the Eclipsed Moon is also Merged with the Fixed Star Algol, in the Constellation Perseus. Algol is the Eye of the Gorgon, in Perseus’s hand after he has cut off Her head, as part of the destruction perpetrated by Zeus of the symbols of the Matriarchy so he can replace them with the Patriarchy. Bernadette says (Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars, p.188), “All writers agree that this is the most malefic star in the heavens and causes hangings, death by the loss of one’s head, and any other foul, demonic deed that could befall the human race.” The Chinese referred to Algol as “Piled Up Corpses.” Algol too represents Feminine Rage and Masculine Terror.

💥 The third thing to notice is the Major Challenge2 that asteroid Damocles presents to our management of these immense Energies. Damocles was a courtier to King Dionysius who flattered the opulence of the King’s Life so much that Dionysius offered to trade places with Damocles for a day. But to emphasize to Damocles that a King’s opulence comes at the price of constant danger from the King’s enemies, Dioysius hung a sword over the throne by a single horsehair. Damocles withdrew in Fear. Damocles in the chart is Larger than Life (Conjunct Jupiter).

Damocles is in the Gonggong corner of the chart, indicating that the Threat of Danger arrives through our Intrusive Memories which in the larger picture3 may well be Intrusive Memories of Abuse. However, between Damocles and Gonggong we have a Boon, in the form of asteroid Sappho, representing Self-Love. When we have our head on backwards, Sappho can also mean Self-Doubt, but Self-Doubt is never Real, it’s always just Thoughts about our Feelings.

When we Feel Self-Doubt about our Behavior or Goals, we can easily rectify that, deciding whether the Relationship merits making Amends for untoward Behavior, or running our Goals through our Heart to verify that they’re really Ours and not Someone Else’s. Self-Doubt about Our Self is Self-Abandonment. We probably need an Ego Death, but we know we can do that, don’t we, so No Worries. Usually when we Doubt Our Self, it’s because we’re trying to Judge ourself by someone else’s standards. We need to Ask ourself Who? and Why? and When did we start that? but beyond that, this is a strategy with no Winners, only Abuse.

I understand that this is can be a Dilemma if you’re trying to keep up with Amazon’s Performance Metrics and Fearing that you and/or your Family will starve if you don’t, or if Long COVID confines you to bed most of the day, but Recognize that this is about Behavior, not Self-Worth, and probably also Abusive. After a Lifetime of Abuse from others in our environs, it’s no wonder we’ve developed Habits of Self-Abuse, without even Realizing it. We feel like it’s just the Way the World Works. Many of us Bounce around from one attempt to another for the better part of our Life before we Find the place in the World where we Fit, if we ever do. Better to Bounce again than to Self-Abandon.

When we come to what feels like a Dead End, where we feel like we’re out of Bounces, we’re in the same situation as an Addict “hitting bottom.” A good way to cope with any Dead End, is to Poor-Sweetheart ourself for feeling like we’re at a Dead End. It’s a concise way to Surrender Control, to Let Go and Let God. Keep in mind that it’s not about how often we Fall Down, but how often we Get Up. If you have trouble Changing the Subject after Poor-Sweethearting yourself, Poor-Sweetheart yourself for having trouble Changing the Subject. Rinse and repeat as often as you need to. As your high-school coach used to say, “Sticktoitedness is Important.”

💥 The other two corners of the Famous Red Triangle also have their Boons. On the Moon-Sedna corner, the Moon’s North Node is nearby.4 That symbolizes our Lifetime Mission. It’s no Surprise that we’d encounter our “Upper Limits” (Gay Hendricks, The Big Leap) when we’re making major advances toward our Lifetime Mission.

💥 On the Sun corner, the Moon’s South Node5 (our Held Emotions, the ones we’d rather Die than Feel, aka our Karma) is Merged with asteroid Vesta, which symbolizes our Unconscious Limitations. That’s a tremendous Blessing, as it represents an Opportunity to Clear Out the Deepest of our Unconscious Limitations, the one’s that feel like Life or Death to us. If you Feel Deathly Ill or like Death would be a Relief, Celebrate it! That’s what it will feel like when you’re successfully Confronting Unconscious Limitations.

But the Big Boon on this corner is the asteroid Klotho, which symbolizes New Beginnings. In the midst of your Worst Feelings, you may find surges of Ecstasy climbing up your Spine – that’s what happens when you’re Willing to actually Feel those Feelings, though it’s always a Surprising “What the Devil is That about?” when it occurs. Honor it, it means Success! It means you can stop obsessing about those Bummers.

  • 1 The 25 November Station of Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) is at 12 Degrees, so it’s not Cuspal, and we’ll consider it separately later. But taking the 21 November Gonggong (Intrusive Memories) Station as an introduction is warranted because Gonggong and Nessus have been traveling together for several years, so we’re accustomed to Enduring Intrusive Memories about Abuse and Privilege, so the Intrusive Memories on their own may well feel like Abuse Memories.
  • The major impact of Stations (when a planet Stands Still in the Sky) is usually felt over the week or so prior to the Station, so we’re highly likely to notice the Exaggeration (Station) of Nessus entangled with the Exaggeration of Intrusive Memories, beginning as soon as now. I’m already (on 17 November) noticing Strong Trances of Intrusive Memories, not about what I would usually consider Abuse per se, but now that I’m thinking about it, they’re revealing to me how Abusive some everyday Behaviors actually are.
  • 2 The red triangle or T-Square that Damocles and Jupiter make to the Full Moon Opposition.
  • 3 Gonggong and Nessus Stationary in the same week – see previous post and note 1 above.
  • 4 That’s the “headphones” or “earmuffs” symbol, in early Gemini. The Nodes move backwards, so from their Perspective it’s actually Late Gemini, but few Degrees.
  • 5 The “stethoscope” symbol.

There’s more – a second Famous Red Triangle T-Square Challenge that also symbolizes rising from the Ashes of your Karma, and a very Strong naked Opposition that’s actually the primary access of a Yin Gate Mystery School. After the Misery Schools we’ve been working with, that’ll be Delightful, though also not without its Frictions. We’ll deal with those in our next installment. It’s a Daunting Time, but if it doesn’t Kill us, it’ll catapult us to a much Higher level, one that we need to Aspire to if we want to Survive, and want our Species to survive, these End Times.

Scary Lunar Eclipse I

November 16, 2021

This week is all about Sign Changes…

  • Asteroid Juno entered Capricorn Sunday 14 November 2021. Juno is about Growth in Consciousness. Since late December 2020 we’ve been Growing our Awareness of What We Needed to Let Go Of (Juno in Sagittarius). Now, till early March 2022, we get to Plug in Candidates for Refilling those Holes in Our Lives (Juno in Capricorn) that Have Been Created by All That Letting Go. Voids are seldom comfortable, so I suspect that, like me, you’ve been working overtime trying to Fix the Holes Where The Rain Gets In, with less success than you would have liked, because it wasn’t time yet. That should be Changing. Yay!
  • Asteroid Karma entered Scorpio Monday 15 November. Boo! Like Frank said to Ernest, I just get my budget in order, and along comes a big surprise, like rent, or a weekend. So as they so often do, our killjoy Ancient Habits (asteroid Karma) are already pushing and shoving their way into the Holes. But this is not without Purpose. Scorpio is Relentless about Getting to the Bottom of Things. So while Juno in Sadge went home with our marbles, now we get to deal with our Addiction to our Routines. Joe Dispenza’s free series of four short workshops (still available at https://experience.hayhouseu.com/redesigningyourdestiny-video1-whereyourattentiongoes/) is about exactly that, and it’s Right On. It’s also an excellent time to reread Gay Hendricks’s The Big Leap. Asteroid Karma (“a.Karma”) has been in Libra – I hope you Deepened your most important Relationships rather than Fleeing them – since only the last few days of August, so at least the torture was short-lived. a.Karma will be done unearthing skeletons by February 20221.
  • Asteroid Vesta enters Sagittarius Tuesday 16 November. Make up yer mind, Universe! Are we Building or Dismantling? It’s always Both/And, isn’t it. If we didn’t have Apoptosis, we’d get even fatter every day than we already do. Vesta is about Our Limiting Beliefs. These days it’s only spending about two months in each Sign. So the last two months we’ve been furiously hammering away at the Beliefs that Most Limit us (Vesta in Scorpio), and we’re probably Frustrated that they seem to still be there! We did Identify them, however, and that will be a great Boon as we Let Them Go over the next few months (Vesta in Sadge). Bear in mind that Life is a lot more complicated than our Dualistic mind can comprehend, so if you think you can actually Name your Limitations, be sure to add …or something like that… to any Descriptions of them.
  • Asteroid Sappho enters Pisces Wednesday 17 November. Sappho (Self-Love and Self-Doubt) has been in Aquarius (Social Idealism) since April, seven months, but it’ll only spend two months in Pisces. I suspect we’ll be glad about that, as we could be spending a lot of time blubbering about the Barrage of Regrets we could be inundated with, as Pisces is about Finishing Unfinished Emotional Business. Whatever you Do or Feel between now and the Ides of February, be hypervigilant about Blame. Blame, whether Self- or Other-, is a total Dead End. No better way to squelch your Growth and stop your Progress toward any Goal, than to hang yourself with the Noose of Blame. Gay Hendricks advises, “that if I could consider, even for a moment, that I was not upset for the reason I thought I was [Thoughts about our Feelings again!], then I could break out of the Trance I was in. Then, I could begin to see what the real reasons were” (op.cit. p.102).
  • Asteroid Nemesis enters Capricorn Sunday 21 November. Nemesis spent three months in Sagittarius (Letting Go Of Guilt) but it’ll only spend two months in Capricorn (Putting Guilt to Work Productively). This Sign Change will be much complicated by its concurrence with the 18-21 November Exaggeration of Intrusive Memories (21 November Station of dwarf planet Gonggong2), and by concurrent Exaggeration of our Instincts (Moon Out of Bounds 20-24 November3). Not to mention the 19 November Scary Lunar Eclipse.4
  • 1 Well, not quite. a.Karma turns Retrograde in March 2022 and backs into Scorpio again in April. It finally moves into Sagittarius “for good” in September 2022. Meanwhile, a.Karma is Out of Bounds (Exaggerated) from late December 2021 in mid-Scorpio, all through 2022, till March 2023 in early Aquarius.
  • 2 Formerly known as “OR10” or “2007 OR10” (or in some ephemerides minor planet number “225088”), the dwarf planet named after the ne’er-do-well Chinese Dragon Gonggong is about Intrusive Memories. It Stands Still at 7:28 am PST November 21, in 4 Pisces. While the connection is fading, Gonggong has been hanging out near dwarf planet Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) for the last several years. This year their Stations are four days and eight Degrees apart, but with Nemesis, an Out-of-Bounds Moon, and a Scary Full Moon Eclipse involved, they’re very likely to Test the progress we’ve been making on Clearing our Abuse Issues. Two key strategies to Remember: (1) That was Then and This is Now and (2) Don’t Trust Your Thoughts about Your Feelings – Keep Coming Back to the Emotion Itself, as a Sensation in Your Body. Sink your Breath and your Attention Deeply into that Sensation, and Persistently Reject the Temptation to Trust Your Ideas and Thoughts More Than You Trust the Sensations in Your Body. If you succeed at quieting the Noise in your Mind, the Sensations will eventually talk to you, but they’ll speak through your Unitary and Multidimensional Intuition, not through your Dualistic Mind. Truth and Healing Reside in Our Bodies, Not in Our Minds. The Nessus Station occurs at 2am PST November 25, in 12 Pisces.
  • 3 Moon Out of Bounds from 9:24 am PST 20 November in 13:14 Gemini till 7:28 pm PST 24 November in 5:49 Leo, Peaking (Stationary) 2:45 pm PST 22 November at 26:21 North Declination and 9:28 Cancer.
  • 4 Virtually (about 95%) Total Eclipse (Illumination) of the Moon 12:58 am PST 19 November in 27:15 Taurus, Conjunct dwarf planet Sedna (Converting Fear to Power) and T-Square to Jupiter and asteroid Damocles (Swords about to Fall, Amplified). More about this in the next installment. The Eclipse is at 28 Degrees, the Sign Changes at 30 = 0 Degrees, and the Gonggong Station at 4 Degrees, all on or near the Cusps, which are the equivalent of the I Ching’s Changing or Moving Lines. We’ll use the Eclipse chart to represent all three.

Samhain

October 24, 2021

Enjoy the relative break this week (there are no Stations1), as it gets busier in November.2 By the end of the week though, we’re likely to be struggling with “Decisions” about our Fate – as if Fate and Decision belong in the same sentence.3 They do, actually, as the Path to Leaving Fate Behind lies through Consciousness. Since our Anal-ytical Mind doesn’t have the Key to the Gates of the Unconscious, we have to Invite our Intuitive Mind (with a PIAVA or several) if we want to bring our Fate into our Consciousness, where we can Replace it with Choice. So we can at least make the Decision to PIAVA Exploration of the Underwhere – that’s pretty much what Samhain’s about anyway.

  • 1 As regular readers know, for our Interpretations we rely mostly on the Planetary Stations – when planets Stand Still in the Sky. The planets don’t Stand Still like a Hummer or a Kestrel Hovering. Since the Earth spins at about a thousand miles per hour at its surface, the “Stars” are always moving. So the only way we can tell that a planet is “Standing Still” is by taking a snapshot of it at the same time every night, to see if it’s moving relative to the stable background Stars. The influence of a planet is Strongest when it Stands Still. The fact that, at the Equator, the surface of the Earth travels at a thousand miles an hour in the Round-Earth Metaphor, yet we can stand up without getting knocked down or blown off, should be strong evidence for an Alternate Metaphor.
  • 2 Besides Moira/Fate (see note 3 below), November also includes Stations/Exaggerations of…
    • Varuna/Life Force in Leo/Confidence on 6 November 2021,
    • Pallas/Boundaries in Pisces/Emotions Versus Thoughts About Same on 8 November,
    • Gonggong/Intrusive Memories in Pisces/Unfinished Business on 21 November,
    • Veritas/Truth of the Mind in Aries/Clean Slate on November 24,
    • Nessus/Abuse and Privilege in Pisces/Victimhood on 25 November, and
    • Neptune/Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity in Pisces/Emotional Confusion and Spiritual Devotion on 1 December.
  • So the second half of November could be pretty Heavy, as we could be grappling with Intrusive Memories about Abuse and Privilege, while during that span both the Moon and Venus are Out of Bounds (Strong, Heavily Justified Emotions always a Time to Strive to Differentiate our Emotions from our Thoughts-About-Our-Emotions). Plus, Nemesis/Guilt Changes Signs, entering Capricorn/Just the Facts, Ma’am on 21 November. The Gonggong-Nessus events occur during Thanksgiving Week in the US, a time when many of us already struggle with Unfinished Family-of-Origin Business. But this isn’t our first time Carving the Turkey, as Gonggong and Nessus have been traveling together and Stationing together for several years already, and their cross-contamination is actually declining. If you can talk yourself into “That Was Then, This Is Now,” and realize that what was happening then was Abuse while what’s happening now is Emotion, that might help.
  • November includes lots of Sign Changes as well…
    • Mercury/Mind enters Scorpio/Fearless Search for the Ultimate Truth on 5 October 2021 and enters Sagittarius/The Way Out is Through Letting Go on 24 November,
    • Venus/Values enters Capricorn/Just Fix It, OK? on 5 November,
    • Ixion/Forbidden Genius enters Capricorn/Damn the Torpedoes, Do It Anyway 6 November,
    • Chariklo/Confidence and Doubt enters Aquarius/Barroom Politics 9 November,
    • Juno/Growth in Consciousness enters Capricorn/If It Doesn’t Grow Corn, Start Over 14 November,
    • Asteroid Karma/Karma enters Scorpio/Relentlessness 15 November,
    • Vesta/Unconscious Limitations enters Sagittarius/Throw Caution to the Wind 16 November,
    • Sappho/Self-Love enters Pisces/Emotional Baggage, but You Can Let It Go If You Just Renounce Your Victimhood, and
    • Klotho/Rebirth enters Sagittarius/Choose Freedom and Self-Expression This Time 26 November.
  • Venus/Heart is Out of Bounds all month (from 10 October till 7 December) so we’ll likely find ourselves Outraged by Violations of our Values, and
  • The Moon is Out of Bounds/Well-Rationalized Heavy Emotions for several days following the 7th and 20th November.
  • Busy Busy Busy.
  • 3 Asteroid Moira/Fate and Choice Stationary 2 November 2021, in 15 Pisces/Hopeless Cases and Lost Causes. Pisces is about Unfinished Business and Unnecessary Baggage, Emotionally, so it could Feel pretty Heavy for us. If you get Discouraged, don’t forget to try Poor-Sweethearting yourself. It seems trivial, but if you take it seriously, it often produces Miracles. You do have to Change the Subject though.

Without Stations, we should be getting a Break, right? Well, we did just have a Full Moon, and the New and Full Moons tell us about the several weeks that follow them. So we’ll look to the 20 October Full Moon to Guide us through the rest of October. It’s not the prettiest Moon in the Cheese Shop…

Any Compulsive Self-Doubt we have may be Lit Up pretty Brightly. This will ultimately be very Healing, but in the interim we’ll likely have to Endure some pretty serious Secret Revelations and Ego Rebirth, turning our Life around completely.4

And there may be more Zombies than usual among the Trick-or-Treaters this Halloween.5 Again, like usual, it’s Ego Death we worry about, and it’s seldom Fatal, except to your old Limited Ego.

  • 4 A Pluto-Chariklo Conjunction (Compulsive Insecurity – or Narcissism) in Capricorn (Pragmatism) makes a serious Challenge (T_Square) to a Competition (Opposition) between Previously Hidden Deep Truths (Aletheia/Truth of the Heart Conjunct Eris/Revelation of What’s Been Denied, behind the Full Moon in Aries) and a Very Confusing and Complicated Rebirth (Haumea/Rebirth Conjunct asteroids Pandora/Travails and Hope and Atlantis/Technological Self-Destruction, behind the Sun). One could have a Field Day translating that into US Politics, but I won’t. Or the Drama-of-the-Week at Facebook (recently renamed Faceplant).
  • 5 A second Challenge involves Sedna/Converting Fear to Power T-Squaring (Major Challenge) the Dance (Opposition) between Respect for Death (asteroid Requiem in Leo/Self-Love) and the Sword of Damocles (asteroid Damocles in Aquarius/Social Ideals). We’ll likely Enjoy Life more if we Remember that we very rarely actually physically Die, but that our Ego Molts often, and that usually feels like we’re Fixin’ to Die.

Another Cusp Event

September 10, 2021

The “Square,”1 which is astrologuese for Hassle or Challenge, gives us headaches because it attempts to join two parts of ourself that are in Fierce Competition – our Physicality v. our Spirituality v. our Emotionality v. our Mentality2 – which aren’t likely to want to Compromise. It’s like the Heart and the Brain arguing over who’s More Important, when in walks the Anus.

On the other hand, the “Trine,”3 astrojargon for Sympathy and Understanding, Harmony and Trust Abounding, contributes to our Joy and Ease and Confidence because it links different parts of ourself that Love to Rock Out Together when they Team Up – like our Creativity, our Certainty, and our Evolution.4 Imagine our Dancer joining our Musician, our Writer collaborating with our Illustrator, our Artist enjoying Critical Acclaim and Financial Success.

When planets linger on Cusps, these traditional Relationships get crossed up. For instance, instead of our Creative Spirituality happily Dancing with our Evolutionary Spirituality, we might have our Creative Spirituality Dancing clumsily with our Emotional Certainty, where we might find (and Examine or Deny) our Bigotry.5 Or the Confusion of our Emotional Certainty encountering our Physical Evolution (Remember in our youth when we didn’t want anything to do with the Opposite Gender, till Puberty kicked in?) instead of the routine Challenges of the little Demons and Angels on our shoulders juggling our Emotional Certainty with our Spiritual Certainty.6

1 Shown in our charts by a short red line between planets three Signs apart.

2 Respectively, Earth, Fire, Water, Air Signs [Matter, Spirit, Emotion, Thought] – eg Leo 🥊 Scorpio 🥊 Aquarius 🥊 Taurus, or Capricorn 🥊 Aries 🥊 Cancer 🥊 Libra, or Virgo 🥊 Sagittarius 🥊 Pisces 🥊 Gemini.

3 Shown as long blue lines between planets four Signs apart.

4 Respectively, Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable Signs [Creative, Stable, Changing] – eg. Aries ❤️ Leo ❤️ Sagittarius, Taurus ❤️ Virgo ❤️ Capricorn, Gemini ❤️ Libra ❤️ Aquarius, Cancer ❤️ Scorpio ❤️ Pisces.

5 Instead of early Aries to early Sagittarius, early Aries Trine to late Scorpio.

6 Late Scorpio Square to early Virgo, instead of late Scorpio to late Leo.

In addition, Cusps are by their nature times of Change, so in addition to the potential Confusion created by these crossovers, we don’t have our History or Herstory to fall back on.

For instance, in the 30 August 2021 Converting Fear to Power chart, Fear Challenges and/or is Challenged by both Trust and Domination. The Trust Challenge is a “Traditional” Challenge – the Material Certainty of Fear (we can Feel it in our Physical Bodies) versus the Spiritual Certainty of Trust. It’s about finding a Balance between Fear and Trust that works to keep us out of Fight/Flight/Freeze and allows us to Differentiate “Real” from Karmic Threats and Act Effectively in Response to each, parrying the Real and Becoming Conscious of the Karmic. But the Challenge of Domination is different. It’s about Physical Stability versus Physical Evolution – it’s about Fear of Change. Do we know what makes the Karmic Real? Do we know what can make the Real Karmic? 7

That’s not all. The Merging of Trust and Domination is also Cuspal. The Trust issue is about Self-Trust. We’d been working since early June on Trusting that our Ego can Handle the Changes, as part of Healing our Unconditional Self-Love. We were in the final stages of that process when Fear Tested us. The Domination issue is about Change. Change in our Willingness to be Dominated or Abused, and Change in our use of Domination (Abuse) in our approach to Getting Our Needs Met. We just started that three-year project, so we’re in the early stages of Discovering the Unknown Unknowns that we need to work on.8

7 In the Sedna [Fear to Power] Station chart, Sedna at the end of Taurus [Fixed Earth] is Squared by both asteroid Eurydike [Trust] at the end of Leo [Fixed Fire] and dwarf planet Thereus [Domination] in early Virgo [Mutable Earth].

8 Eurydike in Leo [Self-Trust] since early June, through 6 September 2021. Thereus in Virgo from early August 2021 through September 2024.

So if we maxed our Benefit from this Challenge (one of many) in the 30 August Fear-Power Curriculum, we were perhaps Discovering where Domination – Bullying or Codependence – fit into our Multidimensional and Unitary Karmic jigsaw puzzle. Are we Creating new Karma or Deepening old Karma through Repetition of Unconscious (or Semi-Conscious and Uncorrected) Domination or Codependence Patterns, and does that Frighten us, or maybe should it Frighten us? Are we Trusting too much that the Victims of our Domination Patterns aren’t hiding Conscious or Unconscious Resentment? Might our Codependence partners Resent our depending on them for Psychological or other “Services” that we should be handling ourself?

What’s the nature of our Karmic Contracts with these “Partners”? As the Planet Descends further into Disorder on way too many fronts all at once, how will this impact our Relationships with and within the Communities we’ll Need for Survival?9

9 A new five-year Eurydike-Thereus [Trust-Equality, Power Dynamics] Cycle begins on 21 September 2021 (7:12 am PDT), in 5 Virgo, “A person becoming aware of Nature Spirits and normally unseen Spiritual Agencies.” These people (the Nature Spirits and Spiritual Agencies) are Distressed that Hupers are not doing their essential part in Reanimating the Planet (ie, working with the Nature Spirits rather than ignoring them).

I just finished Thomas Mayer’s recently-translated book Answering the Call of the Elementals: Practices for Connecting with Nature Spirits, and I highly recommend it. I’ve been working and studying for many years to recover the Connection I had with them in my youth, before my father shamed it into Hiding, and the practices in Mayer’s book are the most Practical and Powerful that I’ve found. There’s also a promising 18 September online workshop sponsored by the Fairy and Human Relations Congress; see https://www.fairycongress.com/monthly-workshops/.

From here I’d like, if I find the time, to examine the Transcuspal Relationship between the dwarf planets that symbolize Unconstrained Freedom (Ixion in the last Degree of Sagittarius) and Taking Full Responsibility for our Survival (Pholus and Quaoar in early Capricorn). The influence of Unconstrained Freedom is Exaggerated (Stationary) until 12 September, and of Taking Full Responsibility for our Survival until 17 September 2021.

Expanding into Fear II

August 29, 2021

In the 30 August 2021 Sedna Station (Emphasis on Converting Fear to Power) chart…

…we’ve adhered closely to our usual 3-Degree Sensitivity…

That’s “Orb” in astrologuese. Like most astrologers, we consider “Transiting” Angles to be Live if they’re within three Degrees of Exact; for instance, dwarf planet Cyllarus is 1 Degree and 47 Arcminutes (31:02 less 29:16 equals 1:47) from an exact Sextile to Sedna – that’s within 3 Degrees. The Sextile Angle (short blue line) connects two planets that are 2 Signs apart. “Transiting” means “in the sky now,” as opposed to “Natal,” meaning in a Birth Chart. The average Natal Sensitivity commonly used is around 8 Degrees (varying depending on the Angle – more for a Conjunction, less for an Unx). We’ll introduce Cyllarus a bit later.

On the other hand, we’ve expanded our Sensitivity a tad to 3½ Degrees in the 22 August Full Moon chart (if we round up the Degrees, as is customary in astrology, from 29:37 to 30 [=0] for the Moon, from 2:56 to 3 for Pholus, and from 26:10 to 27 for Karma, it still looks like 3 Degrees of Sensitivity – we often do this rounding up)…

We’ve omitted Jupiter (Expansion) in the Sedna station chart, but it was only 3:24 away from a Square (Challenge) to the Sedna Station. And, the 22 August Full Moon was Conjunct Jupiter, which is to say, About Expansion, so you can see why we speak of “Expanding” into Fear. A Full Moon chart applies mostly to the two weeks following the event, while a Station chart applies mostly to the week or so prior to the event, though as we said in the previous post, we expect the Sedna Station chart to influence the week after the event because of the Out of Bounds Moon.

We’ve also added several extracurricular Stars and ‘Roids to the Full Moon chart, in order to fill in some obvious Vacancies. We’ll get to that later. First, let’s look at the Sedna Station chart…

The meat of the Sedna Station chart is the Major Challenge (T-Square, the red triangle) to Becoming Aware of our Karma (Mercury/Awareness Conjunct/Merged With asteroid Karma/Karma). Becoming Aware of our Karma often involves an Ego Death, which are seldom pleasant, unless we Focus on The meat of the Sedna Station chart is the Major Challenge (T-Square, the red triangle) to Becoming Aware of our Karma (Mercury [Awareness] Conjunct [Merged With] asteroid Karma [Karma]). Becoming Aware of our Karma often involves an Ego Death, which are seldom pleasant, unless we Focus on How Wonderful Life Will Be After We Ditch Those Bummers! (Hint Hint). But the vegetables are in the Heavy Heavy base of the T-Square, which is where the Real Action often lies in a T-Square.

On one side of this Opposition (Dualistic Argument aka Politics) are Orders from Headquarters (the Galactic Center), Our Hidden and Often Forbidden Genius (dwarf planet Ixion), and That Which Will Blindside Us If We Continue to Ignore It (dwarf planet Pholus). Like Kabul and Nahlins and Waverly and the California Conflagrations, the Message from Galactic Headquarters is We’re Done Messing Around, It’s Time To Get your Creative Butt in Gear and Get This Fixed! Did Recycling save the Roman Empire from decline? Nothing on our Catastrophic Trajectory will Change until Hupers regard the Planet as a Partner rather than a Resource, regard Excess Profit as the Crime of Grand Theft that it is, and regard Social Norms as the Foundation of the Status Quo that is the Cause of the Problem. And that’s Exactly what our Forbidden Genii came here to Fix. Not far from Pholus are our Survival Instincts (dwarf planet Quaoar).

On the Other Side of this Political Duality are Our Intuition (dwarf planet Asbolus) and Our Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos). How many of us Cherish our Intuition and Practice Trusting it constantly? How many of us are Exhilarated by Unlimited Potential, and how many of us Terrified by it? On the GC-Ixion-Pholus side of the Political Divide are the Guts to tackle the Elephant in the Room, and on this Asbolus-Chaos side are all of our Yes-Buts. Yes-But it’s Scary – we could Lose our Mod Cons! We’ll Lose a lot more than that if we don’t Change the Trajectory.

Fortunately, we don’t have to do this Alone. We have Allies. There is a Truss Bridge across the Divide (the blue lines connecting GC-Ixion-Pholus, Klotho-Haumea, Eurydike-Thereus, and Asbolus-Chaos). We can Trust (Eurydike) our Ability to wrestle Bears (Thereus). And we can Trust our Recent Double Rebirth

A Significant New Life Chapter Began (asteroid Klotho enters Scorpio) at 4:16 am PDT 26 August. Scorpio doesn’t mess around. It’s Fearlessly dedicated to Getting to the Bottom of Things. What Things? Since it’s on the cusp, it’s the same chart as the 22 August Full Moon. In that chart, it’s blocking for dwarf planet Haumea, another Strong Rebirth Signal. Pele’s daughter Haumea doesn’t make it to Scorpio, though, turning Backwards in January 2022 two arc-seconds shy of the Cusp of Scorpio. Its dallying delays Haumea’s flow of hot lava into Scorpio till mid-November 2022. Klotho has already crossed Haumea, though, Beginning a New Cycle on 14 August, a few minutes past 12 am PDT, in 28 Libra, “A person becoming aware of spiritual forces surrounding and assisting them.” The four-year Klotho-Haumea Cycle is about Rebirth upon Rebirth. We’re just getting started.

The other Powerful Allies are in the Dumb-Luck Blessings (Grand Trine) that also Touches the Mercury-Karma node. The Allies here are Fearlessness (the Sedna Station itself) and Confidence (dwarf planet Chariklo). If Doubt comes up, Let It Go immediately. You know we’re right about this. Business as Usual is rapidly making this whole Planet look like a Martian Desert. By the time Musk and Bezos get there, Mars will look Lush by comparison to Earth. That’s why Gaia threw a well-deserved fifth wave of the Moronavirus at us.

Finally, dwarf planet Cyllarus demands our Attention as it makes the Grand Trine into a Kite, with itself at the Top. Cyllarus, along with asteroid Requiem (Honoring Death) dropped in to Complete two Vacancies in the Full Moon chart, filling a Grand Sextile and a Grand Cross. He completes the Storyboard for the Sedna Station. Herakles, or Hercules, had a Zeus-given assignment to help Rid the World of Threats to the Patriarchy, especially the Mysteries left over from the Matriarchy. On his journey to this end, he bunked with the unsuspecting Centaur Pholus.

Pholus had Responsibility for safekeeping the Sacred Wine of the Centaurs, and while Pholus was out shopping at Emporos Iosif’s, Herakles Opened the unhidden Sacred Wine. Did he know what he was doing? Probably. The scent carried, and the Centaurs immediately went mad and starting killing each other and everyone in sight. Pholus, true to his habit of ignoring consequences, got dead by picking up a poison dart that had killed someone else, and clumsily dropping it on his foot. Chiron (Despair and Miracles) got the Wound that would eventually make him give up his Immortality. The third corner of the Grand Trine is Centaur Chariklo, Chiron’s wife. And distraught Centaur Hylonome (Codependence and Self-Sovereignty) killed herself with the same spear that killed her Centaur-Stud Lover. That Lover was Cyllarus.

If you need a Program, We are the Centaurs in this story, and Predatory Capitalism is Herakles. We’re killing each other as we help kill the Planet, and we don’t even know why.

Relief from Self-Love Pressure

August 7, 2021

July 2021 was about one topic – Self-Love, with five planets Emphasized (Stationary) in the 25-29 Degree Zone, starting with asteroid Sappho (Self-Love) Herself. It certainly Worked Over any birth planets we have in that zone, and gave us 24-Caret Opportunities to Let Go of Impediments to our Self-Love around Allowing ourselves to be Reborn into it (dwarf planet Haumea), around Adjusting our Boundaries to Promote it (asteroid Pallas), around Letting Go of Guilt about it (asteroid Nemesis), around What We’ve Been Denying about it (dwarf planet Eris), and around Any Confusion we have with our Fate about it (asteroid Moira).

Well, we’re done with those Dramas. You were likely Confronted with all the ways you don’t Unconditionally Love Yourself, as that’s the quickest and most effective way for the Universe to Teach us. It’s too Easy for us to get sucked into the Negative thoughts that we Embellish our Emotions with, and spend a good part of July mired in Self-Judgment, Self-Doubt, Self-Rejection, and, perish the thought, Self-Hate.

It’s not too late to review your own Experience of July, and after the fact Notice whenever you were diverted from Self-Love, and how the process worked, so you can be more Aware and Revert the curse sooner next time. It’s Never too late to Relive and Modify your Experiences. Linear Time is a Fiction anyway, so you could re-enter those Negative July Experiences as if they were Dreams – which they were – and Redo the Experience, this time Realizing what the whole thing was about and Enjoying the Shift into Self-Appreciation!

Even if you aren’t adept at Time-Travel, you can Root yourself in the Present Moment (Ground yourself, for instance), Remember the Emotions, Return to the Present Moment (a Poor-Sweetheart might help), Congratulate Yourself for Enduring the Experience no matter how it unfolded, Tap It Out if necessary, and make notes about the clues you might Notice a little earlier in the Karmic Trance next time. The sooner we Notice, the Easier it is to Interrupt the Ancient Karmic process and substitute a Different behavior.

Enlisting the Physical is always worthwhile. If you can Recall or otherwise Retrieve the Places in your Body where your Self-Judgments were centered last month, you can Meditate on those Places. Put your Attention into that part of your Body, and Hold it there for as long as you can, Gently and Lovingly bringing your Attention back to that place when your Attention wanders. When you Feel a Shift, that’s Success, you’ve just Thawed a Karmic Fossil. Follow it, find out where it plans to Hide next time. Our Attention is a Scalpel – our Karma can Run from it, but it can’t Hide for long.

August is a lot more diverse, so it should be “Easier” – in the sense that it’s less Intense, though it may require dealing with multiple Portals at once. Everything has it Pros and Cons. We just try to Choose options where the Cons are Amateurs, not Pros. If we have the Internet or a telephone, we don’t need no more Scammers!

The Moon is already Out of Bounds – it went Out at 11:22 am PDT 3 August, and comes back In Bounds at 6:40 am PDT 7 August, spanning 17 Gemini to 4 Leo, and Peaking at 9:47 am PDT 5 August at 25:42 North Declination in 10 Cancer. Moon Out of Bounds makes us more Emotional, but we usually have our Emotionality well Justified, so we often don’t even Recognize it as Emotionality. It’s the Delta Virus making many folks go Tilt this week, except for the folks who’ve lost their Homes to Fire and Flood, who have much else to Fret.

The Moon will be back In Bounds by then, but we’re working up to a 6:50 am PDT 8 August New Moon in 17 Leo. The Midpoints of the Fixed Signs (Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, Taurus) are nicknamed the “Four Horsepersons of the Apocalypse,” because they’re Potent Locations. The only other Horsedude that’s Lit Up is Uranus (Soul ) at 15 Taurus. The other two are on Sabattical, working on the Fires and Floods.

However, the New Moon itself is Merged with (Conjoins) the asteroid meaning Respect for All Things (Hopi), and it’s Amplified (Out of Bounds). So it’ll be our Judgments that will be Lit Up, so we can Let Them Go, this weekend. Ego-astrologers interpret Uranus as Disruption, because it Disrupts anything that our Uranian Soul regards as Obsolete. Since Uranus Challenges (Squares) the New Moon and Hopi, we can Expect our Judgments to be Challenged, and to Star in our Learning Opportunities for the next several weeks. Traditionally, the New and Full Moons have their primary influence during the two weeks or so following their occurrence.

Other than this, the New Moon chart isn’t too complicated…

The green wedge pointing at the New Moon is informative. It’s called a Finger of the Goddess, and it means Pay Attention here! The base of it connects the symbols for Codependence (dwarf planet Hylonome) and for Abuse and Privilege (dwarf planet Nessus). Codependence and Abuse/Privilege are markers for Inequality. If we Respect Others, and Respect Ourself, as true Equals, there is no Codependence, no Abuse, and no Privilege.

The green lines themselves are called “Quincunxes” because they connect planets that are five (Quin-) Signs (-unx) apart. They mean Curiosity, or Mystery. The indicate that, in this instance, the Relationships between Respect and Codependence/Self-Sovereignty, and between Respect and Abuse/Privilege, are not open to Intellectual Anal-ysis. They must be considered Paradoxes, whose Meanings are only open to Intuitive Approximations.

Asteroid Hopi makes a Waxing Square (three Signs ahead) to Uranus. The Waxing Square is the point where the Energy of the Cycle becomes Mainstream. The Hopi-Uranus Cycle is about Soul-to-Soul Relationships, not just to other people, but to All Conscious Entities. And all Entities are Conscious, since Consciousness is the fundamental building block of the Physical and Energetic Universe.

The current Hopi-Uranus Cycle began in April 2020, in 7 Taurus, which means “The woman of Samaria at the Ancestral Well.” Rudhyar describes who she is, and the herstorical significance of her meeting Jesus there. He says,

The highest meets the lowest when this lowest is free from traditional bonds and open to love. The creative future descends first to that which has become chaos. An old order is never open to a new Revelation until it has accepted disorder in the name of that Power which subsumes all forms of order, i.e. Love.”

Yintegrity Guilt 3

August 2, 2021

Who knows if it was the only thing that caused WordPress to Disappear my first Yintegrity Guilt Post, but Dragging-and-Dropping my Images does seem to Disappear my entire Post. When I Upload them instead, the Post doesn’t Disappear. Of course it could have just been Karma, and Goddess Knows, these days it could have been straight Censorship, though I haven’t heard otherwise that they’re censoring bits about 5D yet. Wouldn’t Surprise me.

After this Portal, we may be more Cryptic, in order to squeeze out more information in less time. If we’re too Cryptic, Ask Questions.

One thing that was in the Lost Post was a review of Yintegrity

Yangtegrity is when we do what we said we were going to do, when we said we were going to do it.

Yintegrity is when we do what we damn well feel like doing, Moment to Moment.

In 5D we’ll basically have to stay in Yintegrity, or we’ll drop right back into the 3D Patriarchy. To Live in Yintegrity and Survive in a Yangtegrity World, we may have to Minimize our Commitments, Renegotiate Often, and Make Amends when Renegotiation isn’t possible and the Relationship Is Worth Keeping.

Since the 3D World has gone Hyperkinetic, we may also have to move into Sustainability. The first step toward Sustainability is Giving Up what’s Unnecessary, so Sustenance may also be Required. If we’re Reacting to the escalating Electromagnetic Hyperpollution with Neurasthenia and the Inability to continue to Live Hyperkinetically, we may also have to Pool our Resources while we Adapt to the Microwave Death Rays.

Another thing that was lost, was a bit about the Uranus-Neptune Waxing Septile. The 172-year Uranus-Neptune Cycle is about the Relationship between the Individual Soul (Uranus) and the Collective Soul (Neptune). The Septile is about Being in the Right Place at the Right Time (7th Harmonic, the Chariot). The Chariot is At Rest (meaning Relaxed), but always Poised for Action when Needed. There is no Space-Out Lag, no Shoulda Coulda Woulda, only a Seamless and Constant Connection between Goals and Actions, and Readiness to Take Advantage of Opportunities.

The Waxing Septile is a particularly Potent time for Injecting Consciousness-Expanding Action into the Collective Experience, as the first quarter of any Cycle is a Struggle for the New Cycle Energy to keep it’s head above water while the Diehards of the Old Cycle do everything they can (especially propaganda) to keep their obsolete Old-Cycle Investments growing corn when it’s no longer Natural. Your Consciousness-Expanding Action could be Foundational Investments in your New-Cycle Survival or Exploitation Endeavors, or Political Action to furthur Promote New-Cycle Energy, or of course both.

The New Uranus-Neptune Cycle began in February 1993 at 20 Capricorn, “A hidden choir sings during a religious service.” The Old Cycle began in March 1821 at 3 Capricorn, “A Huper soul, in its eagerness for new experience, seeks embodiment.”

Seems like there’s a persondate (Patriarchy-Speak: mandate) in the New Cycle to Collaborate. Use Zoom, as choirs make particularly good Superspreader Events, as everyone labors to Project their various oral exudations. There’s a persistent rumor that all these new Souls that incarnated on Gaia recently, are craving the Planetary Ascension Experience. You probably know people who have moved on to the Other Side already, many because they knew they could Act more Powerfully from that Side as the Veils thinned, which the Veils have certainly been doing.

Invite Dialog with these ex-people, especially your Twig-Mates (our multiple Soulmates) and FOO-Mates, they have a lot to Teach us, and can Help us immensely with our own Survival Struggles. Don’t be Fooled by Appearances; many of the most “Ordinary” people are Manifestations of Extraordinary Souls, as if they all aren’t. And don’t be Fooled by your own Doubt. Your programmers taught you that “it was only your Imagination” in order to keep you pinned down under the Patriarchy’s Tsunami of Bullshit. You can have as many Invisible “Imaginary Friends” as you want now. If Appearances are still important to you, don’t tell anybody else. But keep up your end of the Dialog whether or not you detect any Response from the Other Side, as the Response is likely to come through Unexpected Channels – such as Healing.

The current Emphasis on Growth in Consciousness (the 2 August 2021 Station of Juno), which is our Big astroDeal at the moment, is situated in a Waning Biseptile to Neptune, and a Waning Triseptile to Uranus. Waning Angles in general are about Letting Go. The smaller the Angle, the greater the Admonition that it’s Time to Let Go. Bi-Angles in general are about Traditions, Rules, the substantial Power of Repetition (the Second Harmonic, the Priestess). Tri-Angles in general are about Compassion, Love with Wisdom (Third Harmonic, the Empress).

So the Waning Juno-Uranus Triseptile might be about Letting Go of all Concepts we have about the Soul and all Concepts we have about the Relationship between the Ego and the Soul. Even though we all always seamlessly Identify with our Ego – by definition (think about that please) – most of us are Unaware of this moment-to-moment. And even though we are all always seamlessly Merged with our Soul, many of us are Unaware of this moment-to-moment as well. Identification is Different from Merging. “I Am…” is Different from “We Are…” Percolate this with your Morning Coffee or whatever Upper you use, whenever your “Morning” is. In particular, investigate whether your Understanding of Ego and Soul, and of Ego-and-Soul as a Couple, are Uncompromisingly Loving and Wise.

The Waning Juno-Neptune Biseptile might be about Letting Go of any Rules you ever Learned about the Collective Soul, the Godhead, the Goddessheart, Source, and the Head Cheese by any other name. As Ursula LeGuin so aptly put it in her five-book Wizard of Earthsea trilogy, “Rules Change in the Reaches” (ie, the Edges of things) and Goddess knows we’re in the Reaches! And of course any two- or three-dimensional “Rules” you learned about the Unitary and n-Dimensional Godhead or Goddessheart were Bullshit Political Propaganda to begin with. The Power of Repetition is useful, but it’s about What Works, not what’s “the Right Way.”

We had a question about Septiles a while back, that I haven’t had time to answer yet. I think we’ve spoken a lot in the above about the Septile in general, but this person was asking about a Venus-Juno Septile specifically, and that’s oh so timely now that Juno is Lit Up (Stationary). The main keyword we use for Venus is Values. So a natal Venus-Juno Septile would suggest a Lifetime where one was Constantly Learning more (or Growing in Consciousness) about one’s own Values. That could be a real pain in the you-know-what, as Errors and Failures in Applying our Values to Real-Life situations can be Painful, even as Errors and Failures are the most Powerful Curriculum for Growing in Consciousness.

Like the car I once saw with “O Shit Another Learning Opportunity” written over the big dent in it. Or the Errors in Applying my Values that I made as a young child, that I still vividly Remember, and seventy years later still Regret Alienating that person for Life. Astrology, like Psychology, prefers either Heads or Tails or both, but seldom Edges. So depending on the other Angles, one’s Karma, one’s Programming and Education, and one’s general state of Enlightenment, a Venus-Juno Septile could suggest a person whose Timing about Applying their Values was impeccable, never quite right, or Painfully Inept. What’s assured is that Timing about Applying one’s Values would be a Lifetime issue of one sort or another, and most likely that if one took inventory, they’d find that their Skill at their Timing vastly Improved over the course of their Lifetime.

Fear of Liberation

July 25, 2021

If you don’t know Zach Bush, MD, there’s no better time to start than the Eternal Now…

The Heart: Understanding the vascular system, resilience & repair

Via Zoom at noon PDT 29 July 2021.

With Fate and Choice Exaggerated for the last several days (asteroid Moira Stationary 22 July) in the last few Degrees of Pisces (Letting Go of Excess Emotional Baggage), I imagine most of us have been doing significant Pruning in our Karmic Garden. The bottom line for asteroid Moira is that our Karma remains our Fate as long as it’s Unconscious, and it becomes Choice, Potentially, as soon as we bring it into our Awareness. That’s “Potentially” because even after we’ve Let Go of our Karma, we’re still surrounded by the Habit Patterns that we developed over the years, and Lifetimes, to Accommodate the Karma.

For instance, suppose we always wanted to Travel, but our Fear of the Abandoning the Comfort we Know always stopped us. The Stories we heard about the Pickpockets in Rome and the heavy Rains in India and the Vampires in Transylvania, didn’t help a bit. Well, we may have Let Go of our Resistance to Travel last week, but our Habitual Thoughts about those Pickpockets and Rains and Vampires may still be a Deep-Seated Pattern – the more reps we have Believing them, the sturdier they are.

We have elaborately-constructed Justifications for every Resistance we’ve ever had, and some of them aren’t even our own. Somebody’s Grandmother caught a nasty Flu and died once, generations ago, after she went out in the Rain, and ever after whole generations of people have been told that going out in the Rain “will be the Death of you.” Even after we’ve Let Go of our Flu Karma, we still may Fear going out in the Rain – we may never make the Connection.

This is why Consciousness is so Helpful. Karma has its own Timeline, including its own natural Expiry Date, and those Expiry Dates can pass without our ever noticing them. Without being Aware that we’ve left our Flu Karma at the train station on the way Home from work yesterday, our Chances of Connecting Fear of Flu with Going Out in the Rain diminish, and our Opportunities to Let Go of Obsolete Limiting Beliefs can pass us by. This is also why it is Critical to Recognize Confusion as a Valid and Important Emotion, and Avoid trying to Intellectualize it away. Confusion means that our Habitual Mental Cage of Limiting Unconscious Beliefs – the Justifications for our Fears and Limiting Beliefs that we’ve Memorized to Keep Us Safe, is losing Strength.

What’s left behind is usually Fear – Fear that Granny has left the Cage door open and Sylvester will be home any minute from work at the Mousery. Fear is another Valid and Important Emotion that we need to Avoid Intellectualizing away. If you really were facing a Sabre-Toothed Tiger in your kitchen, you’d Know it, you wouldn’t have to Intellectualize it. Even before we’ve Let It Go, Karma is always a “Paper Tiger” (a residual Symbol of Fear, not a Current-Moment Object to be Feared). Once we’ve Let It Go, Consciously or not, it becomes a Diaphanous Paper Tiger. We don’t have to Think about it, we just have to Look Through It.

Which is why we need to Work Hard to Distinguish our Emotions from our Thoughts about our Emotions. It’s not at all as Easy as it sounds. Any time you add an Object or a Cause or a Prepositional Phrase to an Emotion, you’ve Abandoned your all-important Emotion (the Original Intuition), and walked into the Fantasy World of Thought. Nothing wrong with Fantasy, but use it to your Advantage, not to Sabotage yourself. “I am Angry at…” is a Thought, as is “I am Angry about…” and “I Fear Vampires.” The Thoughts are just part of the Mental Cage we use to Create the Illusion of Safety. When we are Truly Safe, which many of us are a good deal of the Time (any time we aren’t Thinking about whether or not we’re Safe), we have no need for Thoughts to keep out the Dangerous Windstorms.

Even “I am Angry,” without the Grammatical Embellishments, is Misleading. “I am Angry” is a statement of Identity, an Ego-Identification, not a description of Emotions. When we really want to Clarify our Emotions, it would be “I Feel Anger” or “I Feel Scared” or “I Feel Pain” or “I Feel Safe” or “I Feel Ecstatic,” no more, no less. Rather than Embellishing your Emotional Clarity with Dysfunctional Thoughts, Go Inside, Locate the Feeling in your Body, and spend time Sitting With It. There’s so much to Learn from that process, and it’s not Intellectual. If it’s difficult to Locate, Ask yourself, “What If I Did Know?” and if the Answer isn’t Immediately Forthcoming, Wait for It. While you’re Waiting, take Inventory to see if you’ve already gotten the Answer but Dismissed it Out of Hand because it wasn’t Politically Correct to your Ego-of-the-Moment.

The 23 July (7:37 pm PDT, in 2 Aquarius) Full Moon, and the two weeks which follow, is about our Confidence in our Instincts (dwarf planet Chariklo [Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt ] Conjunct Moon), and our Lust to Reconnect with our Soul (asteroid Psyche [Goddess of the Soul ] Conjunct Sun). It’s Challenged by the Red Dragon of Enlightenment (T-Squared by minor planet Zhulong)…

Just as Unexamined Thought Separates us from our Emotions, Unexamined Thought also Separates us from our Soul. Our Concepts about Enlightenment will stand between us and Reunion with our Soul. Brenda Hoffman’s recent Channeling at https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2021/07/25/this-isnt-who-i-am-is-it/ reminds us…

“This is a confusing time. Your new world is no longer linear.  Circular is your new action word – and soon-to-be, belief. Even though that which was is no more, this new is different than you expected…

“Your new world has very few clear divisions. The deciding factors of yesterday are no more. Your actions and beliefs change daily. So it is, you are flitting from belief to belief, action to action, and thought to thought. In 3D, clear-cut delineations were necessary to promote community thought. You are in a new place in a new time, discovering that nothing is clear regarding who you are or what you believe.

“That last concept is frightening because you are not used to the freedom of thought and action while of the earth. You are now exploring new frequencies, dimensions, beliefs, and actions in Universal terms – as has been true since you were conceived eons ago. But when you were of 3D earth, you limited your thoughts and actions to fit within the accepted parameters established by others to create a 3D cohesiveness.

“That 3D cohesiveness no longer exists.”

This Full Moon Challenges our Existing Unconscious Beliefs (asteroid Vesta [Unconscious Limiting Beliefs] T-Squares the Opposition between dwarf planet Chaos [Unlimited Potential ] and the Conjunction between dwarf planets Pholus and Quaoar [Global Change]). We need to parse this furthur. Quaoar symbolizes our Survival Instincts, and Pholus represents That Which We Haven’t Prepared For, but which is Essential. And Chaos is about The Zero Point Field, or the Vacuum of Space, which in the Quantum World is a version of the Infinite Improbability Drive that Zaphrod Beeblebrox pilfered (Douglas Adams, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Universe, pp.76ff). You haven’t read that yet? That’s as Unprepared as not having bothered to see the definitive documentary Men In Black. The Centaur Pholus got himself dead by Failing to be Prepared.

Seriously, any Limiting Belief is Risky these days. We have to continue to PIAVA What We Want, NOT What We Think We Can Manifest. Ice Cream for Breakfast? The Antichrist for Ambassador to Xinjiang? World Peace? Environmental Justice? Sympathy and Understanding, Harmony and Trust Abounding? What Is It That You Want? Don’t Hold Back. You’re In Charge of Your Piece of the Pie. Clotted Cream, or Ice Cream? Which Is It You Want? It’s Not a Time to Think Small.

It’s None of Your Business What Others Want for Their Piece, unless you’re Negotiating Win-Win with them and Helping each other Out. Competition and Scarcity are Obsolete; revise your Thinking toward Cooperation and Sharing instead. You don’t want to Know how What You Want might be Delivered – you’re not In Charge of that. It’s not about the Mechanisms which might Create it; many of those aren’t invented yet. It’s about What You Want Created. That and That Alone is Your Assignment.

We’ve made it through our six Cuspal July Self-Love Challenges (Stations). We have some Sign Changes in the next few weeks. Venus and Mars enter Virgo on 22 and 29 July respectively. That will be Challenging, as our Values, our Actions, and our Relationships will all seek reorientation through Ego Deaths. Mercury moves into Leo 27 July, so the Mind should Sparkle, as long as we keep it out of places where it’s way out of its League – Emotions and Enlightenment for instance. Jupiter backs into Aquarius 28 July, and Ceres moves into Gemini 31 July. Our Emotions should calm a little, and our Notions of what Sustainability means will Expand as much as our Limiting Beliefs are, if we let them.

We start August with Atropos moving into Virgo on the first – more Ego-Death-like Adjustments to Replace Expired Karma with something more Constructive. Till 2 August (4:23 pm PDT) we’ll be Feeling our Consciousness continuing to Expand (asteroid Juno Stationary in 9 Sagittarius) to fill the Voids Created by the July Demise of our Self-Judgments. Then we pretty much Get A Break till the Ides of August, though the subsequent Exaggerations of The Truth of the Mind and Descent of Soul (Stations of asteroid Veritas and Uranus 19-20 August) are likely to Expand to fill the empty space.
