Orcus and Hopi II

May 18, 2017

This cute puppy is a cluster of Neptunite Crystals (the black ones and the red residue left when they break off – the black is from Iron, and the red from Manganese; Neptunite also contains Potassium, Sodium, Lithium, Titanium, Silicon, and of course Oxygen).

My favorite – because its Interpretations closely match my Experience, unlike most others – Crystal book says that Neptunite allows “group dynamics to be maintained without a disciplined structure” and allows “individuals to orient to the broader community vision” while promoting “voluntary contribution … with a free and open willingness”(Collen Marquist and Jack Frasl, Crystalline Communion 2000 , p.104).  She continues…

“One can recognize the inherent demand of the activity, but it is raised to a vibration of service and contribution rather than enslavement and demand.  It promotes circular sharing of power within a group rather than hierarchical structure.  Where cooperation is required, Neptunite reaches out to create a community allegiance, and allows individuals to highlight the aspects of group intuition.  This can lead to a prophetic ability in describing the destiny of a culture or group, and allows the individual to play an important role.”

An alternative to the Oaths and Commitments that leave a Karmic trace in our crypt of Unconscious Limiting Beliefs, in other words.  Collen’s words closely match what Genia Haddon Pauli (in Body Metaphors for instance) says about the Yang Female which she proposes is in the process of supplanting the Patriarchy.

The “loudest” Configuration in the Orcus Station chart is a combination of a Grand Cross (Strong Motivation, and Skill at Multitasking) and an almost-Grand Sextile (Great Grace).  Strong Motivation and Great Grace in combination are widely considered to be “the best kind of chart” (from the Productivity Perspective) because the Motivation prevents disengagement while the Grace prevents Frustration…

The other terms in the Grand Cross, besides Orcus and its sidekick asteroid Karma, are Nessus (Abuse and Privilege), Lilith (Self-Sovereignty), and Ceres-Mnemosyne (Remembering Sustainability).  We’ve already talked about the Lilith-Ceres/Mnemosyne Opposition, which leaves Orcus-Karma Opposite Nessus.  Well, many of our Oaths, probably including our most ancient Karmic Oaths, were made to escape Abuse or preserve Privilege, so we can expect some fairly nasty Recollections to surface from other Lifetimes, and from their early-Childhood refractions.

There are a number of plausible Perspectives that connect Past-Life Karma and Current-Lifetime Experience. 

  • One is that our Soul’s Urge to Heal brings these up so we can Embrace them and Let Them Go. 
  • Forget the Perspective of Retribution; it’s Self-Abusive.  Once you remove the Dualistic Either/Or Judgment from Abuse and Privilege, Perp and Victim are really just different sides of the same Coin.  If you have a strong reaction to this Perspective, first Tap Out your immediate Emotional Load, then extend your arms, palms up, to each side.  Put your personal or vicarious Victim Experience in one palm and your personal or vicarious Perp Experience in the other.  Close your eyes and very slowly bring your hands together while Paying Attention to what happens in your Body.
  • Another Perspective is that we as Souls choose what Issue we Choose to help Clear in an Earthy Lifetime, then before we take birth we spend time in a Simulator to indoctrinate our Huper Form with the Emotions of the Issue.  Once we’re born, we’re engaged with the Issue.
  • By now you’re probably familiar with the Inertia Perspective, where we can be trapped by the Power of Habits making nests for themselves in the Unconscious.  Noticing, Embracing, and Building replacements is a primary strategy for these Archetypes.

Remember though, All There Is Is Now.  All of those “Karmic” Adventures are just Dances Being Performed by other parts of your Extended Self, Now.  So all you have to do is move the Veil aside, and Stop Performing that Dance.  If you can shift your Assemblage Point to the multifarious Perspective of your Extended Self, that is.  And why not?  PIAVA it. 

Bottom line, We Can Expect to Be Working with our Demons this Weekend.  Consider it a Blessing, and Trust that Whatever Comes Up is Coming Up so you Can Let Go of It for All Time.

The Orcus/Karma-Nessus Opposition is also involved in the Grace-full Grand Sextile, we we won’t be “Alone” with our Demons, we’ll have Allies.  The other three corners of the almost-Grand Sextile are Mercury (Communication) and Hylonome-Veritas.  The latter is the central axis of the Yin Gate we spoke of in the previous post.  The most Powerful corner of an almost-Grand-Whatsit is the Vacancy, in this case 7 Scorpio,Deep-sea divers: The will to explore the hidden depths of all experiences and to search for primordial causes,though I’d be careful to measure “cause” by what makes the Heart Whole rather than what makes the mind go ding.

If you look at the lighter lines in the picture, you see the second Yin Gate in the Orcus Station chart.  The Central Axis of this one is an Opposition from Nemesis (Ego Death) to Vesta (Limiting Beliefs).  We also spoke about that Opposition in the previous post, as it was a diagonal in the first Yin Gate – it was one of very many indications pointing to a Likely Huge Flush of Limiting Beliefs Surfacing so We Can Let Them Go.  Notice that Mercury T-Squares the Central Axis; another warning to Avoid getting stuck in the Either/Or mind while we’re working with Multidimensional realms.

Orcus and Hopi I

May 18, 2017

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Response-Ability 4

May 17, 2017

This ongoing Dance between Pholus (Respond-Ability) and Quaoar (Survival Instincts) has been going on for several years; we’ve just been Paying Attention to other issues because they were more Prominent in the charts.  The Dance has been happening on the Cusp of Capricorn.  We can’t help but think that Pholus-Quaoar is about Global Warming, Ascension, and the Patriarchy.  We think of Capricorn as the “Just Do It” Sign, and Pluto (the Mandatory that can be Directed but not Reversed) is about to enter the Virgo Decanate of Capricorn (2018-2024).  That Decanate would imply “Just Break Down your Olde Ego, K?”

The Cusp of Capricorn is of course the northern Winter Solstice.  In many ancient traditions a Day begins at dusk of what most of us would usually consider the evening before, and a Year begins at the Winter Solstice.  To the Romans it initiated Saturnalia, their equivalent of Oktobefest, a celebration of disregard and reversal of the everyday rules of social discourse.  The conversion of Saturn and Capricorn (which are first cousins) from rule-flaunting to rule-making was done by the early Christians in order to enhance their Political (Either/Or) Control over the People. 

The Romans had the luxury of their Mediterranean climate.  For folks further north, the Winter Solstice meant likely hardship, dependence on Community, and the necessity to Attend to The Most Important Thing – Surviving another northern winter.  That yields the primary keywords for Capricorn and Saturn, respectively Pragmatism and Focus.

Like Aries (northern Spring), Cancer (northern Summer), and Libra (northern Autumn), Capricorn is a Cardinal or Creative Sign, signifying a Rebirth.  Aries is the Rebirth of the Indwelling Spirit (Fire) as fresh evidence of the Life Force emerges in northern Plants and Animals in March.  Cancer is the Rebirth of Compassion (Water), as the northern Earth begins to generate a surplus in June (Radishes at least, and all the Leaves we can eat).  Libra is the Rebirth of Community (Air), as the northern September Harvest requires Cooperation and Fair (ideally anyway) distribution.  And Capricorn is the Rebirth of Attention to Material Form (Earth), as Winter cold and snow demand a Focus on Physical Survival in December.

In parts of the Southern Hemisphere, the same pattern could be repeated because most of the habitable Southern Hemisphere landmass lies much closer to the Equator than in the Northern Hemisphere.  In many locations Aries represents recovery from estivation rather than recovery from hibernation.

We can see Western Civilization as a massive social experiment to see what happens when the Individual is celebrated as the Highest Expression of Huperity, rather than the Community.  Though it very much feels like a failure, it’s not a pass/fail test, it’s an experiment.  The Balance between Community and Individual isn’t a linear trend, it’s a sine curve.  As China replaces Europe and the US in the role of World trendsetter, the Balance will swing back toward Community.  Not that the Chinese are any less Patriachal, they’re just more likely to be smart enough to know when Change is necessary.

Here are a few Timepoints that you can compare to your Journal and your Schedule…

  • Mid-January through November 2015 – Quaoar on Galactic Center
  • Early February through December 2016 – Pholus on Galactic Center
  • Late January 2017 – Quaoar enters Capricorn
  • Early March through November 2017 – Saturn on Galactic Center
  • Late March 2017 – Pholus and Quaoar simultaneously Stationary (turning Retrograde) while one Degree apart across the Capricorn Cusp
  • Early June 2017 – Quaoar backs into Sagittarius
  • Mid-September 2017 – Pholus and Quaoar simultaneously Stationary (turning Direct) in Sagittarius
  • Early December 2017 –
    • Pholus Initiates Saturn in 29 Sagittarius, “A fat boy mowing the lawn of his house on an elegant suburban street
    • Quaoar re-enters Capricorn
  • Late December 2017 –
    • Saturn enters Capricorn
    • Quaoar Initiates Saturn in 1 Capricorn, “An Indian chief claims power from the assembled tribe
  • 2018-2021 – Pholus and Quaoar continue to Dance closely at their Stations
  • 20 February 2022 – Quaoar Initiates Pholus in 7 Capricorn, “A veiled prophet speaks, seized by the power of a god”

Remember that the Digital Age begins in earnest in late 2020.

We can’t address Response-Ability without commenting on “New Age Guilt.”  New Age Guilt is a misunderstanding of Taking-Responsibility-to-Create-Your-Own-Reality that occurs when Creating is seen from the Perspective of Blame.  I’ve a friend that suffers from a serious disease and a nasty hospital-acquired superbug infection.  If they try to Take the Blame for this Past Creation, then absolutely it may turn out to feel like Guilt, though I’m not sure how that Blame or Guilt would be related to “New Age.”

Blame, remember, means Assigning Cause to Past events and circumstances.  Sure, with perfect foresight they might have been somehow able to sidestep the Triggers for their misfortune, but it would be a real stretch to Blame them for it.  On the other hand, my friend is absolutely Taking Responsibility to Improve their Future Outcomes, which is exactly how Response-Ability is defined.  They are very much Intending to Create an Improved Reality for themselves in the Future, preferably the Near Future.

In Jane Roberts’s seminal Nature of Personal Reality, Seth points out that it’s Easy to know the nature of our Karma, all we need to do is summarize our Current-Lifetime Personal History.  So sure, if you want to Blame someone’s Present-Moment Ego for all of their Past Lives, you might aver that they have “Created Their Own Past Reality,” but what a stretch that would be.  It would be like that movie where they prosecuted people for crimes that they might commit in the Future.

That doesn’t mean we don’t all have the Opportunity to review our Current-Lifetime Personal History and try to fathom how to read our Limiting Beliefs from the Funhouse Mirror that it is, and use the information to reduce our Self-Sabotage.  Karma remember is Inertia – Olde Habits and their underlying Beliefs – not Retribution.  The notion that we need to be Punished, for whatever, is just Power-Over, usually perpetrated by Religions and Governments.  So it may make some sense to speak of Religious Guilt or Government Guilt.

Another way to look at the difference between Blame and Response Ability, is to look at how our Ego is defined in our self-concept.  If our Operating Ego is Merged with our Individual Soul, then we may be Open to encompassing all of our other Past and Parallel Lives, and extending our Response Ability to some of the issues in those Lifetimes, including any hypothetical Habits and Beliefs Created in those Lifetimes that may linger into the current Lifetime. Of course we’re talking about Sainthood here.

If on the other hand our Ego is Merged with our Physical Body, which Fear of Death would Betray, since our Soul is immortal; or Merged with our Dualistic mind, which would be Betrayed by the presence of Either/Or Judgment of any kind; or Merged with our Emotions and Betrayed by Resistance or Attachment to any of them.  Knowing this could help us define our homework.

Fate is what happens TO us when we’re Unconscious of the Archetypes (Karma) that run our Lives.  When we bring these into Consciousness we gain the Power to Choose otherwise, often referred to as “Free Will.”  Identifying with our Physical or mental or Emotional Bodies keeps Archetypes frozen in the Unconscious.  Identification with our Individual Soul is an ambitious Goal that most of will never achieve.  However, every step we can take in that direction will reduce our Self-Sabotage.

We can never say how accurate and how metaphorical we might be when sending a Healing to someone else (or even to ourself!), but when I send a Theta Healing to my friend for their affliction, the picture I get is one of Panic.  When I then send a Healing for their affliction and their Panic and their Belief that the superbug can kill their physical body, the picture I get is one of Peace and Competence.  So if we revert to the previous Response-Ability 3 post for Guidance, we might Wonder if it would help my friend to Ask themself whether they have an Ancient memory and a Held Emotion around Fear of Being Poisoned, and if so to see where it might lead to Tap that Out and Poor-Sweetheart it.

Moving from Blame to Response-Ability isn’t easy, because Blame is a Closed Universe.  There are no logical paths out of Blame; the only way to exit is is to PIAVA an exit.  Given our conditioning it’s even more difficult, but we’re even better off if we can glimpse the World through eyes other than Cause and Effect.  Cause and Effect is absolutely dependent on Linear Time, and every Spiritual tradition on the Planet advises that All There Is Is Now. 

Without Cause and Effect, there is no Blame.  Response-Ability can run completely on PIAVAs – no need for Cause and Effect at all.  Your PIAVAs don’t “Cause” your Future Outcomes, they “merely” have potential to shift the Beliefs that Control your Perceptions of “Reality.”

And Anger

April 24, 2017

Some oh-so-useful and timely Wisdom from Marilyn Raffaele…

https://rainbowwaveoflight.wordpress.com/2017/04/23/arcturian-group-message-april-23-2017-marilyn-raffaele-onenessofall-com/

Painful and unresolved issues between two people (often dominance/victim)  will remain in cellular memory and be carried into each lifetime continuing to  manifest between the same people in different roles.  This type of connection between people results in the formation of energy cords.

“Energy cords are created whenever there are intense experiences of either good or bad  between two people, and become a facet of one’s energy field until removed or until one of the two evolves beyond the energy that created the cords in the first place (the cord no longer has anything to attach to).  The dissolving of energy cords does not remove a person from one’s life, but removes the intense and often unhealthy sense of bondage that accompanies them.

“Energy cords develop between sexual partners, frequently between a child and a parent, or with anyone with whom there has been shared intense experiences.  Energy cords bind those involved to low resonating energy and should be removed, which is easily be done by energy healers, or by self through intention.  ‘In the presence of my Higher Self and my Guides, I consciously  choose to remove any and all energetic cords attaching me to_____.’  Visualize Light dissolving the cords which are usually attached to the solar plexus chakra, and fill in the space with soft golden Light.  It is the intention, not specific words that is important.”

I often find that cords are attached to the back, often the back of the Heart Chakra as well as the Solar Plexus Chakra, as this facilitates Power-Over without our Consciousness.  Parental Programming can take this form.  Remember that different modalities – such as Programming and Energy like Cords – are not different media, they’re different Perspectives on the same phenomenon.

Judging any of our Emotions is counterproductive.  It’s a step away from Self-Love, and it can be a big step.  But we have to admit that some Emotions are more Comfortable than others, and some more Fun than others.  Preference is Healing; Judgment is Toxic.  Anger, for instance, can be followed by a number of Inconveniences and worse, depending on what we do with it.  While we attribute primarily Fear to dwarf planet Sedna, Anger also often accompanies it.

Anger as a Self-Protection is never to be rued.  In defense of Safety, it’s your best friend.  An “Imaginary” pet Alligator, for instance, is very handy to keep around to gobble up disused Cords.  Alligators aren’t Angry, they’re just Hungry.  There’s no room for Mercy when someone has you Corded.  You need Relentlessness instead, as your Guilt is an integral part of their Power-Over.  You know you’re Corded when you can’t get someone out of your mind, and Mirroring (holding an Imaginary wardrobe Mirror between you, facing them), while it may work, doesn’t Hold for more than a few minutes.

The 26 April New Moon is one foot of the base of a Finger of God (Pay Attention!) pointing at Lilith (Self-Sovereignty); the other foot is Atropos, symbolizing Endings.  It means Pay Attention to Ending any impediments to your Self-Sovereignty for the next several weeks.

But once we get to Safety, Review can be very powerful.  A good place to start: Is there any sense in which your Anger followed Fear, especially Fear of Abandonment?  Sedna’s orbit is a hundred times longer than Pluto’s orbit – it’s waaay out there!  Abandonment would be a good synonym for it, and the Sedna Mythology is certainly rife with Abandonment.  Anger over Abandonment causes a lot of Relationship difficulties, whether you’re “down by the banks of the Ohio” or not.

That Anger is most definitely rooted in Fear.  While Action is a frequent Reaction to Anger, Vulnerability may be a more appropriate Response to Fear.  Facing a Tiger immediately springs to mind (whether we’re in Watermelon Sugar or not).  Our natural reaction is to Freeze, Flee, or Fight.  But what if we just sat down and said “Hi.”  Tigger may not be hungry. 

And if we Identify with our Immortal Soul rather than our Ego, Death is nothing but a Transition, a Rebirth.  As much Harm as Huperity has done to Tiggerity, offering up our Physical Vehicle to Tigger may be enormously Healing for us both.  Of course we’d want to check for and Clear any Cords between us first.  Tigger may be Intimidated by our Alligator.

Roselite is an Arsenate of Calcium, Cobalt, and Magnesium.  Arsenic is a very Angry Element from the Perspective of our Cells.  Yet because the Damage it can do is so widespread, as a Homeopathic it’s Power is equally Diverse.

Fear and Doubt

April 22, 2017

These are likely to be our Demons for the next several weeks, as the Yin Gate between Sappho (Becoming Aware of Self-Doubt) and Sedna (Becoming Aware of Fear) has re-formed.  Here’s how the Yin Gate and its enclosing Golden Rectangle look at the 26 April New Moon…

I’ve put the Yin Gate and Golden Rectangle in bold lines, and the auxiliary Angles in lighter lines.

The Golden Rectangle is the blue box with the red X connecting opposing corners, and the Yin Gate is formed by the red line bisecting the box and making two green X’s, one in each half.

In a nutshell, the meaning is that we’re being Challenged to Embrace our Fears and use the Energy hidden in them to fuel the next increase in our Self-Love.  In other words, whatever we Fear is likely to be Lit Up so we can practice being Loving with it, and we’re likely to be Feeling Anxiety around any issues where we Habitually Feel Inadequacy.  It’s all about Getting Conscious of those Dramas and Arenas in our Life where we still have some work to do, so we can know what to do and do it.  So we can “Raise our Vibration” in other words.

Karma-Chariklo-Pluto V

April 18, 2017

There’s excellent guidance on Transformation and Manifestation, and much other intriguing material, at…

 https://www.mynewsletterbuilder.com/email/newsletter/1412971090 

The day after the Pluto Station, on 21 April, the Sappho-Sedna (Self-Love “versus” FearYin Gate forms again, till mid-May.  Coincidentally, I’ve just had the opportunity to read Marilyn Raffaele’s 9 April Channeling, which Marilyn Channeled during the Mercury and Hylonome (“Coyote”) Stations – see  https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/04/12/full-moon-the-rest/ .

Marilyn’s Wisdom applies equally well to our current Pluto-Station Transformation and the opening Yin Gate.  Here’s a sample…

“Men and women who have lived lifetimes with closed hearts blocking the full expression of the Divine Feminine energies, will find the awakening process to be a confusing and painful time because they have built their identity and self worth upon the myths of the masculine being more important than the feminine.  However, the process of opening the heart can only begin when one realizes that it is closed.

“Some examples of the personality traits of men or women who have limited themselves only to the masculine are; taking charge of every situation whether or not it is their place, dominating and feeling the need to always tell others what to do, considering self’s opinions and beliefs to be the only correct ones, and holding the attitude of ‘my way or the highway’ regardless of the feelings, needs, or beliefs of others.

“Men and women can also be overbalanced with feminine energy which manifests as a person who consistently defers to others in the belief that they are either not worthy of having opinions and choices, or not capable of independent thinking.  Because of these beliefs they consistently give their personal power to others.  Often they are those who overtly and emotionally ‘love’ everything and everybody in false and often irritating way because there are no qualities of the masculine bringing in balance.”

She covers a lot more in this Channeling, and it’s all Relevant, Intriguing, Illuminating, and Important to our Process.  As I write this you can find it on her website at…

 http://www.onenessofall.com/newest.html 

But it’ll be overwritten (and hopefully moved to her “Archive”) at her next Channeling.  You can find a more permanent copy at…

Karma-Chariklo-Pluto IV

April 18, 2017

The Pluto Station Configuration is simpler yet, though simple doesn’t always mean easy.  This Configuration is a Tricolor – you can probably figure out why we call it that.  That last Square Fez was actually two interlocking Tricolors, and we hinted at the similarity in interpretation processes.  This Station is Exact at 6am PDT on 20 April in 20 Capricorn…

The Major Tricolor is a Square (red, meaning Mastery through Challenge), a Quincunx (green, Curiosity), and a Trine (blue, Big Grace).  We can also have a Minor Tricolor, where a Sextile (a shorter blue line, Little Grace) replaces the Trine.  The approach we use is that by moving our Attention from the Challenge in the Square to the Curiosity in the Quincunx, we Trigger the Grace in the Trine.

These are some pretty hefty players – Pluto (Transformation), asteroid Juno (Moving into Consciousness), Jupiter (Amplification), and dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential).  Together these represents a Big Leap in Consciousness.

Let’s start with the Challenge that we can Choose to “ignore” – that is, Allow it to happen without our contributing Frustration – by focusing on the Curiosity.  While we aren’t talking Resurrection or the Ships Landing, Juno is really a rip in the Veil.  Not the Big Veil that protects our narrow Cultural view of Reality by hiding the Other Side and the Faeries and the Visitors, but the Big-to-Us Veil that protects the Ego from invasion by Awareness that our Limiting Beliefs are, well, Limiting. 

I’m sure you’ve heard of Pluto as Lord of the Underworld, so in that sense we are talking about the Other Side, but Pluto the planet is more about Ego Death than Physical Death – that is, Ego Rebirth, which since the Ego is nothing if not Relentless, is preceded by an Ego Death of one sort or another.  It doesn’t have to be Traumatic, but it’s usually disruptive.  Welcome disruption at times,  if we’re ready for it. 

As you probably remember, we regard our Species to be driven 99% or so from the Unconscious, and 1% or so from the Ego, or Conscious Choice.  The Unconscious operates on us through a collection of Archetypes, which are a constellation of Beliefs, Behaviors, Emotions, Thoughts, and Forms.  Miracle Healings are possible because Archetypes can have Physical Form, so Letting Go of an Archetype can Transform our Physicality.

Operating under these Archetypes is, virtually, operating in Trance.  And Pluto is about Changing Trances.  If you have a Strong natal Pluto, you Change Trances as easily as changing your clothes, though less often.  Folks with a Strong natal Pluto Feel like they’re living many Lifetimes in one, as each chapter in their Life is distinctly different from the previous chapters, with sharp distinctions between them.

Transformation is the keyword that best fits Pluto, and we often play with the word as Trance(Re)Formation – Forming a New Trance.  When we have a sharp break in our Global or Cultural Timelines, like the start of a new World War or Civil War, or a disruptive “Black Swan” economic event like a Brexit, Pluto is usually involved.  We get a “New Normal” and meet it with a New Trance.

So just the fact that the Pluto Station Conjoins Juno is pretty profound, as a rip in our Personal Veil is likely to be joined by turnover in our Ego.  On the Global scale, it may be no accident that there’s a new Loose Cannon on deck.  And now our Challenge is that on both levels Jupiter isn’t likely to let it be a minor event soon forgotten.  This is the Challenge we’d just as soon Allow to happen on its own, without our messing it up any more than is necessary.

So we move to the Quincunx between Juno-Pluto and Chaos, which is – by definition rather than hyperbole – literally mind-blowing.  Chaos is out there where Sylvester lives, Granny isn’t home, Tweety’s cage just got blown apart, and Tweety ‘R’ Us.  So an excellent PIAVA to express our Curiosity might be “I Wonder how the devil we’re going to Survive this!”The yang form of Creativity is all about Mechanism – How to get it done.  The yin form is all about Result – What We Want.  In order to pull off a clean yin Manifestation job, we need to Avoid thinking about Mechanism, and let our Intuition guide us step by step.  That’s how we Create Miracles.  So we aren’t talking about the sort of Curiosity that Responds with “Well, maybe this will work…”  We’re talking head-scratching, slack-jawed Wonder, as in “Well, Glory Be!  Look at that will ya!”

The trick in “I Wonder how we’re going to Survive this” (the “How” is figurative, we aren’t addressing Mechanism, but Outcome) is that it gives a Suggestion to the Unconscious (which is very Suggestible) that we will, somewhow, Survive.  That’s very different from fretting about whether our radiation shield is working, or that our customers are now foreigners.

Since the Grace is available, why not Receive it!  Jupiter Trine Chaos is even Bigger than Jupiter Square Juno-Pluto.  Juno-Pluto implies that someone left the front door open.  Chaos implies that the roof just blew away.  So if there’s so much Change afoot, why not use it to our Advantage.  Let it Clear Away all the detritus that won’t serve is in our new Incarnation. 

How to do that?  Focus on the ultimate Outcome that we Want.  Afraid we’ll Lose something essential?  Paint it into the post-Apocalypse landscape.  Better yet, how does that essential something make you Feel?  Add that Feeling to your post-Apocalypse Emotionscape.  Your Life is really all your Creation, so Go For It, and take the Easy way.

Debriefing

It will behoove us to have a quick Review…

What was different in your Life last week, relative to the week before?

What Feels different today than it Felt in the middle of last week?

Was there anything you had to strongly Resist last week, or that you Regret this week?  Anything you felt Guilty about?  Any free-floating Apprehension?

If there was anything you Felt like you had to strongly Resist or Felt Guilty about, it was probably either an important Latent Talent that you were taught was rude, or Selfishness and Pride, and probably both.  There’s still time for you to Reconsider.  You were doing things last week that you seldom do, and you were doing them with Confidence.  And if you Felt afterward that someone was likely to “cut you down to size,” you’re on the right track.  The more subtle it was, the more important it is.

For instance, I was in an all-day meeting with 60-70 people, and I was much less shy, more talkative, and more Confident than I usually am in groups.  I didn’t speak out of turn or make jokes or otherwise (gently) disrupt, as I can do at times; instead I had many satisfying one-on-one encounters.  Afterward I didn’t Regret anything, but I did Feel a vague sense of unease that I couldn’t “pin” on anything in particular.  It was all very subtle; if I didn’t know what to look for I could easily just disregard it.

This was Ixion (our Latent Genius) and Sappho (Self-Love) at work.  My father grew up during the Depression, where as he often said there were dozens of people waiting to take your place if you weren’t the best at your task.  He often advised us to keep a low profile, work quietly and well, and not give anybody any reason to shoot us down.  One of the worst things we could do was to be “too big for our britches.”  Excellent Self-Protection, but mediocre Self-Love.  Good work Skills, but lousy to absent Self-Promotion.

The subtlety is important because the more low-key the effect, the more Unconscious the material, and the more important it is to Recover, by bringing it fully into Consciousness.  Consciousness means Choice.  When my Self-Respect is Conscious, I can make moment-to-moment Decisions about whether and how to speak up.  I won’t be inspired to clam up, or disrupt, by vague undetermined urges.  I’ll have more Choice over whether and when and how to speak well of myself.

Can you make any sense of the five questions above and how they fit into your own Life?

This is a very intense story about Soulmates, and this segment deals with Letting Go of our Self-Rejection – obviously timely…

Self-Love and Genius

March 17, 2017

As usual, Michael Roads is right in tune with the “Stars,” writing in his “365 steps to a happier more conscious life” email (http://int.michaelroads.org/) as if for the simultaneous Stations (Strengthenings) of Ixion (Forbidden Genius) and Sappho (Self-Love)…

“There is no higher-Self and lower-self; there is only Self

“As I have often written, Self is who you are.  When I refer to self, this is the aspect that relates to separation and identity.  Some people call this the ego-self.  The problem with this is that these people often indulge in attacking their ego, claiming that the ego must die before Self can be realised.  This is nonsense.

“It is Love that brings freedom from the illusion, and Love does not attack any aspect of who you are to achieve this.  Love and accept yourself for who you are, the way you are, right now.  Treat identity-self lovingly, gently, and with great care.  Always, always, always . . . choose Love!”

Ixion was the psychopath of the Greek Pantheon, creating all manner of cultural havoc until Zeus cornered him.  Rather than punish Ixion though, Zeus, liking Libertarian males as the Founder and Archetype of Patriarchy, gave Ixion a second chance.  With that second chance, Ixion set out to seduce Zeus’s wife Hera.  That Zeus didn’t tolerate, so Zeus bound Ixion to the Sun, to forever spin across the Sky in Fire.

Of course the behavior Zeus couldn’t tolerate in others, was exactly the behavior that Zeus perpetrated repeatedly on other women.  Some authors attribute upwards of 150 children to Zeus in the various versions of Greek Iconography.  This is a good example of the “Funhouse Mirror” through which we see our selves.  If it occurred to Zeus that Ixion was simply Mirroring Zeus’s own behavior, then Zeus becomes a bit of a tyrant, reserving those sorts of Adventures only for himself.

More likely, Zeus failed to recognize the Mirroring, as we are wont to do when we Judge others for the behaviors or attitudes that we are unable to Witness in our self because it would conflict with our Limiting Beliefs, or trigger the Held Emotions that we’re unwilling to tolerate.  An illustration of how our Judgments, when exposed to the Light, are doorways into our Stuck places.  Hence the punishment of being strapped to the Sun, to the Light, and hence the burning Pain of Ego Death from Spiritual Fire.

Here is some excellent Perspective on one of the greatest tricks of the Patriarchy and Power-Over in general, a behavior which for some weird reason people are naming “Gaslighting.”  In my day it would simply have been called a Mindfuck, but that may not be polite enough for the DSM…

A picture is worth a thousand words, and Gaslighting is illustrated here…

In the process of Zeus’s punishment of Ixion, Ixion grandfathered the Centaurs, Equine-Huper hybrids – Zeus fashioned a Cloud in the image of Hera, and the father of the Centaurs was the result of Ixion’s tryst with the Cloud.  We’ll let your own imagination play with any Atlantean metaphors about the Cloud that our Computers mate with today.  Of course our most famous Centaur is Chiron, master of Pain and Miracle, and metaphor for Separation.

An interesting and very useful Perspective on Chiron, from…

https://shiftingthroughlove.wordpress.com/2017/03/16/chapter-12-the-build-up/

“…a dream message from a guide who called himself The Hierophant.  His message was to ‘follow the 8 winds’ and he also said, ‘Within a moment you will be changed.’  My research indicated that the Hierophant was a typical part of the tarot deck often also known as the High Priest.  Further, he can also be known as Chiron, the wounded healer.  Further research showed the 8 winds as a reminder to avoid attachment to those things which are very desirous while also not avoiding things that are very painful.”

The Hierophant stands for the Fifth Harmonic – Learning and Teaching, while the Eighth Harmonic is about “alignment and balance” and “piercing the webbed veils of illusion, delusion, and deception” (Angie Arrien, Tarot Handbook, p.55).  The part about “the 8 winds as a reminder to avoid attachment to those things which are very desirous while also not avoiding things that are very painful,” in addition to being the core of Liberation from Archetypes, is for me an intriguing addition to the concept of Rebalancing.  

And “Within a moment you will be changed” is the hallmark of Chiron, as the Leap from Despair to Miracles that results from the successful Shift to a New Perspective that, for instance, Poor-Sweethearting can accomplish.  

It also sheds further Light on the Mjolnir or Thor’s Hammer (a third planet at the Far Midpoint of a Square) as Lightning or Epiphany, since the Mjolnir is a pair of Trioctiles, or the combination of the Third (Love with Wisdom) and Eighth Harmonics.  A Waning Trioctile is after all a Quinoctile, combining the Fifth and Eighth rhythms.
