Happy Lunar New Year

January 24, 2020

Actually, the more important astroevent at the moment is our 26 January 2020 Rebirth (Station of dwarf planet Haumea at 23 Libra, 1am PST).  What do we know about this Rebirth?  Well, it comes with Celebratory pink and blue Banners shouting out “Fear Not!  Just Trust Yourself!(the Haumea Station sits at the focus of a green wedge or Finger of God [Pay-Attention!] from dwarf planet Sedna [Fear] on one foot, and on the other asteroid Eurydike [Trust] and Lilith [Self-Sovereignty]).

It also promises a Ray of Sunshine (Pluto [Transformation] is moving into a Waxing Square [Becoming-Visible] with Haumea, in the Pluto-Haumea Cycle [The-Inevitability-of-Transformation] that began in September 1954 at 26 Leo about “After the heavy storm, a rainbow: Linking above and below, the Covenant with one’s diving nature, promise of immortality“). This continues to Grow until May 2023, when it becomes Permanent (when the Waxing Square is Complete).

And Accountability for Scofflaws (Saturn [Priorities] is also making a Waxing Square [the point at which the Theme of a Cycle comes out into the Open] to Haumea, in the Saturn-Haumea Cycle [The-Most-Important-Thing-Is-to-Realize-that-the-Past-Is-Gone] that began September 2011 in 18 Libra about “Two men placed under arrest: A breakdown in the constructive relationship between the individual and society, and the expectable result)This Blooms on 25 February 2020 (the Exact Square).  Put the name of your favorite Scofflaw in the hat, and we’ll have a drawing on the 26th to see who wins the hat.

And a Permanent Union of Power and Peace (dwarf planet Ceres [Sustainability] also Waxes Square [goes Public] to Haumea; this now-hatching Ceres-Haumea Cycle [Resiliency] began November 2018 in 26 Libra regarding “An Eagle and a large white Dove change into each other“).  This Energy goes fully Public tomorrow, 25 January at 2:20 pm PST (Exact Square).

There’s even some Magical Fun in store for us (Chariklo [Self-Confidence-and-Self-Doubt] joins the crowd making a Waxing Square to Haumea, in the Chariklo-Haumea Cycle [Self-Trust just because it’s the most Practical way to be, regardless of our Ruthless Yes-Buts] that began in November 2009 at 13 Libra about “Children blowing soap bubbles: The cultural fantasies through which young minds dream of perfect fulfillment“).  This Flower opens fully on 2 March (the Exact Square).

There’s a bit more to say about it all, but we’ll send out the Good News while it’s still hot.

 

I Guess We’re Here

January 13, 2020

Brenda Hoffman has an intriguing message for today…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2020/01/13/your-co-creators-have-arrived/

“January 12, 2020, is a watershed date in your lives and that of all inhabiting earth at this time. For it is as if something clicked inside your hearts, your beings that shifted you from fear to love.

“This shift will not be displayed immediately because many, perhaps including you, have to adjust to the new sensations this shift created. Even though you might have been prepared for something before January 12, this something has never been experienced by you or any earth being. It is as if a shaft of light pierced your tough earth shell.

“Perhaps you think that such comments are a fairytale for how is it possible that one day can create such upheaval?

“This shift will cause many to feel that what was up is now down, and what was down is now up. Because these new sensations will feel unnatural, frightening, it is likely something most will not discuss them. For they will believe that doing so makes them seem odd.

“Those of you in the know will merely adjust as you have to every other burst of energy throughout your earth life. Others, feeling as if their life has been turned upside down, will be the most frightened.

“Even though humans are familiar with the fear of change, this energy event is a tsunami of change. It will be as if someone woke up one night with a new emotional body and must do everything in the dark without understanding how to do so. There will be fear and anger. Not because this shift is bad or damaging, but because it will seem so foreign. So it is many will test these new feelings by doing the exact opposite of their intuitive directives. A confusing time for most.

“You, the forerunners, will slip into your new being easily and effortlessly for you have prepared to do so since you began this transition.

“Those not as open to transitioning beyond 3D as you will be confused and attempt to return to their former feelings only to discover they can not.

“This is a mass transition of proportions you can not begin to envision. For anyone who has dreamt of moving beyond fear and angst will shift rapidly. Such does not mean that in two days all of the earth will be like you, but instead that everyone who wishes to will have their heart opened.

“January 12, 2020, is not a day to take lightly. Allow yourself to move as you wish. And allow the same for all others. For their fear will be displayed long before their heart actions. Just as was true for you when you initiated your transition. The difference is, you have likely been in transition for decades or years. Those now at the beginning stages will shift within days or months.

“You are their beacon – allowing those frightened to know that all is well.

“You will also shift. But your shift will be polishing more facets of your diamond being. Those beginning their transition are discovering their diamond self in the rough.

“Your role and only role is to continue a joy focus. For if you allow yourself to be in fear with those just beginning to transition, they will become more frightened, perhaps not even able to function.

“You are the beacons of the world. Allow yourself to know and accept that.

“All who wish are transitioning or beginning their transition as of January 12th, 2020. You have little to do other than to inform those who wish to know that all is well.”

Well, as they say, “Trust but Verify.”

But then, according to our own previous post, aside from the main effect of 12 January’s Big astroevent about Transforming (Pluto) our Priorities (Saturn) to accommodate (Squared by) What’s Been Denied (dwarf planet Eris) – along with its embellishments (Mercury/Awareness, dwarf planet Chariklo/Confidence-and-Doubt) – the Big Challenge (T-Square) was about Trust (asteroid Eurydike), wasn’t it.  The Challenge to Trust was from the Veracity of the Shift (asteroids Veritas/Facts and Bee-Zed/Transcendence) and our Insights about the Incredible Scope of the Change (dwarf planets Asbolus/Intuition and Chaos/Unlimited-Potential)!

And that doesn’t even include what we Believe to define the context for the 12 January event (namely the 10 January Stations/Strength of Uranus/Soul-or-Consciousness which in Taurus is Descending into Matter, and of Eris/Revelation itself, along with the Eclipse/Illumination), which we might summarize as Huperity Becoming Aware that Matter has been Conscious all along.  Which is the Missing Core Belief in the Western Worldview that is Messing Up the Planet for Huperity and Everyone Else.

So unless Brenda has been reading this blog, which I very much doubt, her post is a remarkable “Coincidence.”  What I’ve been Feeling, myself, is quite a lot of Fear.  I’ve been working with it, Tapping and PIAVAing to get Grounded, but even then I’ve Lacked Clarity on a couple of Issues that seem Important.  Till this morning.  Then I remembered to Poor-Sweetheart myself –

“You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Scared, aren’t you.”

And Wham, suddenly there’s Excitement, tonnes of it!  Now I even Remember to Breathe, and to Kegel if necessary!

Where Are We, Then?

January 11, 2020

It’s a good time for an overview of what’s going on…

Most Important, we’re ending one 35-year (or so) Cycle and beginning another.  We use three primary sources to interpret the meaning of a particular Cycle as a whole…

First, we use the natures of the planets involved.  Here we’re referring to the planet that symbolizes The Most Important Thing – our Priorities (Saturn) and the dwarf planet that stands for Transformation and The Primary Background Theme of the Times (Pluto).  Lest we ossify, our Personal and Political Priorities will need to Change when this Zeitgeist Changes.

Those with a significant Investment in the Old Cycle will Propagandize like crazy to try to maintain the fruitfulness of their Investment.  You can see this happening around the Decline of the Patriarchy.  Mainstream Institutions and captive media make it look like the Patriarchy is at its peak.  The next phase of greater Gender Balance may take a step backward for every two forward, but rest assured it’s on track to watch the Patriarchy crumble into the toxic slough of its own Hubris.

Feel free to Allow your own Investment in the Old Cycle to Feed you while it fades, but bear in mind that the Cycle is already Dead, so your profits will slowly Decline.  Your primary Efforts are better spent laying the Groundwork for your Investment in the New Cycle.  It will be a while before you hit paydirt, but you’ll have the advantage of being well prepared when the Market comes looking for you.  In the case of this New Cycle, the Market won’t fully hatch till 2028 (when Saturn reaches its Waxing Square to Pluto), but it will gradually increase till then.

A parallel Shift occurs when a planet Changes Sign.  For someone of my own vintage, the classic example was the Shift from when the Zeitgeist (Pluto) was in the Sign of Nurturance (Cancer), to when it moved into the Sign of Self-Reliance (Leo).  My parents and their peers could not understand how my own cohort could forsake Security (Pluto in Cancer) in order to pursue Self-Expression (Pluto in Leo, especially when Pluto was Out of Bounds, as it was off and on from 1938 till 1953.  The Shit hit the Fan in the 1960s, when many of these people reached maturity just as the New Uranus-Pluto Cycle was Born).

We’ll find similar Gaps between people, projects, and Institutions that are born in different Cycles of Zeitgeist-attuned Priorities (Pluto-Saturn).  How will these Differences Manifest?  We need to look at Differences in the natures of the Expiring and the Emerging Cycles themselves, which we glean from the second and third sources of interpretation…

 The second source of meaning is a Reading for the Degree of the Birth of the New Cycle(Outer planet Conjunctions will typically occur several to many times; their first Conjunction in the Cycle defines the Birth of the New Cycle.)  Like each of the twelve Signs, the 360 Degrees of the Zodiac also each have traditional meanings (commonly read through their Sabian Symbols, which were Channeled in the 1920s).

The Priorities-Zeitgeist (Saturn-Pluto) Cycle that’s Ending began in 1982 as “A person becoming aware of spiritual forces surrounding and assisting them(the Sabian Symbol for the Degree of the first Conjunction of that Cycle, 28 Libra).  I doubt that Dick Clark or his clones will ever characterize the Zeitgeist of the 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s as Awareness of Spiritual Forces Surrounding and Assisting us, but in retrospect I certainly regard exactly that as the Most Important Change in my own Life since the 1980s.

It was in the early 1980s that I had an office downtown, and was riding a bus across town on an errand when I sat down next to a young lady and just to make conversation, asked her what she “did.”  She said she was a “Psychic.”  I almost fell off the bus, I was so surprised.  I thought that happened only on television.  I signed up for a Past-Life Reading, and it literally blew my mind, because of the extraordinary Sensations of Limitlessness that I felt during the Reading, and that episode led to meeting my First Spiritual Teacher.

 So, what about the New Cycle?  Its Anthem is “A soldier receiving two medals for bravery in combat(the Sabian Symbol for 23 Capricorn).  Now that is a Change of Zeitgeist.  I don’t think it needs to be about War, as we can be totally Brave in many other ways – standing up to the Bullies, Speaking our Truth, Keeping the Faith, Mediating Hopelessly Polarized Disputes, Praying for Lost Causes, Resisting War, etc.  While the Old Cycle fades from the mainstream, What We’ve Learned From It never goes away.

Over the last 35 years we’ve Learned that we not only don’t have to Do It All Ourself, but also that it’s simply Silly Egotism to think that we Do Any of It Ourself.  We are Transformers.  Our greatest Power lies in Directing the Show, in “PIAVAing” (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/) the World We Want to Live In, in our Intentions.  The Material World is Created in the Image of someone’s Vision of it, usually the Vision of a lot of someones.  We need to Step Up and Take Command of the Role of the Visioner.  We need to do that for the Planet and All of its Residents.  We can be a Brave Soldier in that Endeavor.

For instance, we can help the Patriarchy Save Face as it Dies Out, so its Ego doesn’t have to Cling so tightly to its Illusion of Power.  We can thank it for holding the place together while we figured out the Next Step.  We can Lovingly and Gently demonstrate Power-With when we see people getting all tied up in Power-Over, to show them that there are other ways.

We can Create our own Institutions rather than beating our heads against the wall trying to take down the Patriarchy’s Institutions.  If we demolish an Institution, it creates a Power Vacuum that someone else can step into, and the Outcome is likely to be Worse.  Better to just Create a New Institution to serve Our Goals, one that will already be up and running, ready to step into, when the Old one faceplants.

Our third source of interpretation for the Old Cycle is its Birth Chart.  On this score the Old Cycle’s 1982 Natality featured two major Changes (Squares).  First, the Movement from Victim of to Mastery over Materiality (Saturn-Pluto Opposing asteroid Karma, and Chiron Squaring dwarf planet Makemake).  I know, this is the exact period of the Decline of the US Middle Class, but not everyone has Learned to Accept the Assistance of the Spiritual Forces Surrounding them.  It’s also a period where more and more people have Realized that Abundance means Having Enough to Share, not Having More than Anyone Else.

The second Movement was from Hope to Trust (asteroid Eurydike Squaring Neptune), as we’ve Learned how to Communicate with the Spiritual Forces Surrounding us and how to Collaborate with them to Manifest What We Want.  The mass market edition of Shakti Gawain’s germinal book Creative Visualization hit the streets in 1982, just as the new Old Cycle began.  For the last third of a Century we’ve been Practicing for Ascending into 5D(Find more about 5D in Michael J. Roads’s books.  Find more detail about the Old Cycle’s Natality at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/11/10/january-2020-ii/.)

 The Birth Chart of the New Cycle teaches us a great deal about preparing for the next 35 years.  The chart of the ZeitgeistPriorities Initiation (Pluto-Saturn) itself gives us the Tools to be Aware of the Change (Saturn-Pluto Conjunct Mercury Out of Bounds), to make it Sustainable (Conjunct dwarf planet Ceres/Sustenance), and to have Confidence in it (Conjunct dwarf planet Chariklo/Confidence).  It also advises us that many Secrets that the Old Order kept Hidden will come forward into the Open (Saturn-Pluto Square dwarf planet Eris/Revelation).  We’re advised to Accept the Consequences of Aligning with Truth, rather than trying to maintain the Status Quo.

This chart also tells us that we want to Trust that New Facts will be Transformative, and Trust our Intuitions that the Future will be no Bigger than our Dreams for it (asteroid Eurydike/Trust T-Square to asteroids Veritas/Truth and Bee-Zed/Transformation Opposite dwarf planets Chaos/Unlimited-Potential and Asbolus/Intuition).  In other words, we need to be Creatively Visualizing a World that is Far Beyond what we would normally Want to Manifest.  Whatever you Want, make your Prayers and other PIAVAs much much Bigger and Better than that!  (For more detail about the New Cycle’s Natality, see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/11/17/january-2020-iii/.)

 Astroevents are always embedded in Time, so any astroevent must also be seen through the eyes of What Else Is Going On at the time.  The Beginning of the New Zeitgeist-Priorities Cycle is Blessed with A Lot Going On, and it Goes Deep.  In our view, Saturn represents Ego.  The Mythological Saturn’s mother was Gaia, and his father was Uranus – Saturn was the child of Earth and Sky.  Saturn and his siblings were Titans, and were kept inside the Earth, where they caused Gaia pain.  Gaia asked her children to neuter their father to prevent further pain, and only Her last-born Saturn was willing to do it.

In our view, Uranus represents the Soul.  So the story is about Ego taking Control over the Soul’s Ability to Create.  5D is about Recognizing the Consciousness inherent in Matter, and Manifesting in Cooperation With Gaia/Nature and Uranus/Soul rather than in Defiance Of the Life Force in Nature and the Soul.  Saturn/Ego‘s own son Zeus was the father of the Patriarchy, with its focus on 3D Hierarchy and Power-Over rather than 5D Cyclicity, Equality, Interdependence, and Power-With.

Regular readers know that we consider the Influence of a planet to peak when the planet Stands Still in the Sky, as the outer planets do twice a year (when they turn Retrograde or Direct).  So we consider a planet that’s Standing Still in the Sky to have more Power in the moment than a planet that’s Beginning a New Cycle.  In other words, we regard the entire New Cycle to be Devoted to the Mission of a planet that’s Standing Still at the Initiation of the Cycle.

 Well, at the Beginning of the New Zeitgeist-Priorities Cycle, two planets were Standing Still.  The first was none other than Uranus/Soul, whose Mission at the moment is the Descent of Soul into Matter (Uranus in Taurus/Earth), which we can also invert and read as the Ascent of Ego into Soul, or into 5D.  Astrology doesn’t comment on the Nature of Reality, but only on the Relationship between Huperity and Reality.  So one way to look at the Mission of Uranus in Taurus, is as the Reanimation of Nature and the Earth by Hupers.

We can see the New ZeitgestPriorities Cycle as offering “two awards for Bravery” in the Reanimation of Nature and Gaia.  Of course this is only one Interpretation.  But Matter Follows Energy, and Energy begins with Vision.  So this Interpretation can lead us toward 5D.  Other Interpretations can take their Visioners toward where they wish to go – more Power to them.  We don’t need to Compete with them; we can Co-Exist with them.  We don’t even have to be in the same Realities.  Many Holograms can occupy the same Space, if the concept of Space is even defined in such a picture.

The second planet that’s Standing Still in the Sky is the one that symbolizes Revelation of What’s Been Denied (dwarf planet Eris).  As we said before, this planet Challenges (Squares) the New ZeitgestPriorities Cycle.  But if there’s one Denial that’s leading to the Destruction of Life As We Know It, it’s the Denial of our Awareness of Consciousness in Nature and the Planet, and in Her Myriad of non-Huper Entities.  We can Vision and Create 5D in spite of that Denial, but the more Energy can be dedicated to a Vision of Life Cooperating With Life, the more Suffering can be reduced.

 What else is in the chart of the New ZeitgestPriorities Cycle’s Intimate Companion, the Station/Apex (Standing Still in the Sky) of Uranus/Soul?  This remarkable chart makes a Self-Resolving Challenge Full of Grace (a Diamond Star embedded in a Grand Trine, where a T-Square, Finger of God, and Grand Trine all point to the same planet, making everything work together Effortlessly.  Find the chart, and more details, at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/11/07/january-2020-i/).

Climate Change (the Conjunction of Quaoar/Survival, Pholus/Ability-to-Respond, and Aletheia/Truth-of-the-Heart) is in this chart as one of the Foundations for Self-Resolution (one foot of the Finger of God).  It could be that Climate Change will be the one Energy that finally Unites Huperity in the Awareness that We’re All in This Together.  The other Foundation is Memory (dwarf planet “OR10″/Intrusive Memories) – perhaps one of the Denials to be Revealed will be our Collective Memory of Atlantis.

The chart does Ask two things of us – that we Step Out of Victimhood (asteroid Moira/Fate-and-Choice Opposing Uranus, and asteroid Karma/Karma Conjoining Chiron/Despair-or-Miracles), and that we Stay Curious and Avoid Trying to Figure Out What’s Going On (the many Quincunxes in the chart).  If we covet those Medals, we just need to Bravely keep Speaking our Truth and Embracing the Life Force.  But we may find all this just Happening all on its own, while we just watch.

Namarrkon

January 8, 2020

Bob in Australia sends us this note…

“Flash Storm at Uluru

“Uluru said goodbye to 2019 with a severe storm that lashed the nearby town of Yulara with lightning and torrential rain. The weather bureau reported this to be the type of storm that happens twice a century.

“The bolt of lightning has traditionally been a symbol of sudden illumination and the destruction of ignorance.

“In Aboriginal mythology, the lightning man, who looks like a praying mantis is known as Namarrkon (and other names).  He uses the sun’s power as energy, forming bright arcs of light across each of his shoulders….”

This Energy is what Western Civilization (and Western astrology), worshiping as it does the Ego, misinterprets as Destruction.  It’s astrological symbol is Thor’s Hammer or the Octile Yod, which we call a Mjölnir, preferring the Norwegian name for Thor’s Hammer, because “Thor’s Hammer” is so linked to Violence and Power Over.

We could easily argue that the Main Event here isn’t so much the dreaded 12 January 2020 Saturn-Pluto Merger (The Most Important Thing is our Transformation), but the 10 January Station of Uranus/Soul as it recruits the Power of Saturn-Pluto to support its Descent into Matter (Uranus in Taurus).  In other words, the Reanimation of the Planet and Nature, which is the Most Important Thing we can do to turn around the Neo-Atlantean Self-Destructiveness of Egoic Humans. 

Note that Western Astrology doesn’t actually purport to talk about our external affairs; it talks about our Relationship to External Affairs.  Which is to say, if Hupers Learned to Respect the Consciousness in non-Huper Matter (whether Animated or not) and thus in their mind and Heart Learned to Reanimate the Planet, that in itself would Shift the Planet immensely.

The Eclipse, while it’s near the Degree of Saturn-Pluto, occurs on the day of the Uranus Station.  Which is also the day of the Eris Station, which Reveals That Which Has Been Denied.  Westerners interpret the Descent of Soul into Matter through their training as Christians, but Everything has Consciousness, and just about everything here except Hupers wear their Consciousness Responsibly.

So, what Mjölnir Graces the Uranus Station?  The Station is Trioctile to each end of the Square/Challenge between Truth (asteroid Veritas) and the Merger of Self-Love (asteroid Sappho) with Growth in Consciousness (asteroid Juno).

January 2020 V+

January 7, 2020

Resending this post, with an addition or two in blue…

The Archduke has been Assassinated, though Choosing Sides for the WW to follow hasn’t begun yet, officially.  Anyone who Believes that an “I for an I” means…

“Okay, I named the Reality first, so you Lose”

…as in “[I did this] to stop a war, not start one” must have Learned The Art of War from a starving banker, or from a bigger Bully.  One named Roy maybe.

I’ve met several people, though, who also woke up on 1 January 2020 feeling quite Differently, and very Mellow (perhaps abetted by Mercury/Awareness Out of Bounds/Strong crossing Jupiter/Expansion).  So in spite of my Cynicism about Huperity I actually don’t advocate “Lending our Strength to that which we wish to be Free From.”

While Ascension requires knowing that We Are All One, it also requires Liberation from Attachment to what Other People do.

On 4 January (9pm PST) and earlier, the dwarf planet that symbolizes Manifestation (Makemake) is very Strong (Exactly Stationary in 7 Libra).  A friend of mine celebrated this by getting a rebate for a less-than-Perfect trip on an airplane – to the tune of $1600.  Maybe the rest of us weren’t Dreaming big enough.

On 6 January (1pm PST) and earlier, the asteroid that symbolizes Beginning New TimeLines (Klotho) is very Strong (Exactly Stationary in 5 Gemini).  Start a New TimeLine where you Imagine how you’ll Feel when you Receive a surprise, unexpectedly large, check in the mail.

Also on 6 January and earlier, our Held Emotions (the ones we’d “rather Die than Feel”) could Feel magnified (Jupiter Merges with the South Node).  Start a New TimeLine where you Imagine how you’ll Feel when you’ve Learned to meet each Held Emotion with Delight because you Realize that Bummers which we haven’t Learned to Love yet are running our Lives from the Unconscious.  Now that would Manifest as Abundance!

On 10 January (11:30 am PST) the Full Moon is a Partial (Penumbral) Lunar Eclipse.  We regard Eclipses to be about Illumination.  This one just happens to Light Up (Oppose) the Convention of Heavies (Stellium of Sun, Ceres, Saturn, Pluto, Mercury, and Chariklo in 22-25 Capricorn) that dominates 3-14 January.  Lunar events often act as Triggers for Bigger Events.  The Moon Opposes the Heavies one after the other from 2pm till 7pm 10 January.

On 10 January (5:30 pm PST) and earlier, the dwarf planet that symbolizes Secrets Long Hidden Being Revealed (Eris) is very Strong (Exactly Stationary in 24 Aries).  Since you’ve already Started that New TimeLine where you’ve Learned to meet each Held Emotion with Delight, you’ll meet any unpleasant Secrets with Excitement.  Well, what if you did.

I can always tell when the planet which symbolizes Soul (Uranus) is very Strong (Stationary) because I can easily Sleep when I’m Tired, but I don’t get Tired very much.  It gets Manic around here.  As long as I Realize what’s going on, it happens without the Depressive part.

Well, this planet that symbolizes Soul is also very Strong at 5:30 pm on 10 January, at the same time as the dwarf planet that symbolizes Revelation.  Yes, could also be Revelations.

Also on 10 January (3am PST), the asteroid that symbolizes Truth of the Heart (Aletheia) enters the Sign that means Just Fix It (Capricorn).  This could be a very Potent combination, Soul, Revelation, and Truth of the Heart all Lit Up at the same time.  I’ve been Feeling some of that already.  If you thought about it, you might be too.  You may not even have to think about it.

And then on 12 January (9am PST) and earlier, we get what many of us have been Dreading, the Merger (Conjunction at 23 Capricorn) of Saturn (Focusing on The Most Important Thing) and Pluto (Compulsion and Transformation).  If you find yourself Compelled toward something you’d rather Leave Behind, Transform itIf we follow the Pattern of 2001, we may wait till the Ides of March to Feel the brunt of this Energy (Moon Begins Decade of being periodically Out of Bounds).

You might be very Surprised to find that Intention is all you need, especially since the Transformation of our Priorities (Saturn-Pluto) is Challenged by the Revealing of Long-Hidden Secrets (Square to the Station of Eris) and aided by Powerful Awareness (Mercury Out of Bounds Crossing Saturn-Pluto at 2am PST, before returning In Bounds at 7am PST).

It will be very important to be Mindful of Self-Doubt.  The dwarf planet that symbolizes Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt (Chariklo) sits just two Degrees past the Saturn-Pluto Merger, and it is also very Strong (Out of Bounds).  Our Awareness (Mercury) will be less Acute (no longer Out of Bounds) by 13 January (2am PST), when Awareness and Self-Doubt/Confidence Merge (Mercury Conjunct Chariklo) but our Self-Doubt/Confidence will still be very Strong (Chariklo Out of Bounds).

Remember that this is in the context of Powerfully Transforming the Most Important Thing.  If we could Create a New TimeLine that disables our Self-Doubt and cues our Self-Confidence instead, wouldn’t that make a huge Change in our Lives!  We could do that without getting trapped in Overconfidence, just by being Confident enough to say I Don’t Know.  If you give yourself Permission to go ahead and Dream Big, that could be just a PIAVA away (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/).

January 2020 IV

January 2, 2020

I don’t know about you, but I feel like an entirely different person today.  I’m assuming it has something to do with the New Year.

An email from a friend…

“Wow! I thought you all would definitely want to know…

“Can whoever is managing the Dragon Lines email list please forward this on?  And maybe to the Fairy Study group, as well?

“To each of you, Blessings on your work…

” ‘THE INTERRUPTED CEREMONY

” ‘In January 2020, a massive Planetary Energy activation is due to occur on Earth at the time of the Saturn-Pluto conjunction.  At this time, the Planetary Solar Plexus Chakra located at Uluru / Ayre’s Rock and Kata Tjuta / The Olgas, in Central Australia, will be fully activated.  Aboriginal lore tells of a ritual back in the Dreamtime that was interrupted and never completed.  This ritual was meant to fulfill the Great Plan of the Earth Spirit.

” ‘Once the ritual is consummated, “perfection will spread throughout the World”.  In other words, this ritual will open the way from 4th to 5th World Consciousness.  This event is symbolised by a great pole, or Cosmic Umbilical Cord, which unites Earth with the Sun.  It is predicted that this Cord will begin to function in 2020 AD, at the time of the Saturn-Pluto conjunction.
” ‘Together, Uluru and Kata Tjuta form the World Solar Plexus Chakra.  This is the primary Chakra for the maintenance of global health and vitality of the planet, and all living things.  If things are not right here, then the whole World system suffers.  It is now time for this to be healed.  The healing began in October, 2019, when a total ban on climbing the highly sacred site of Uluru was declared.

” ‘According to Robert Coon, author of The Rainbow Serpent and the Holy Grail, this powerful activation will also involve a blast of Divine Light and Energy through the song lines (ley lines) of the Planet, connecting all of Earth’s main Chakras together, and most especially one of the main Energy arteries/song lines referred to by the Aboriginal people as The Rainbow Serpent (representing Divine Feminine Energy to many).  This line starts at Uluru (Solar Plexus) and travels through Bali (World Purification Centre), to Glastonbury (Heart and Third Eye Chakras), to Lake Titicaca (Sacral Chakra) and then back around and through to Uluru.
” ‘The Planetary event in January 2020 is actually a rare quadruple conjunction involving Saturn, Pluto, Mercury and the Sun [plus dwarf planets Chariklo/Self-Confidence and Ceres/Sustainability].  The previously interrupted ceremony will culminate in the reactivation of the Solar Umbilical Cord of Planet Earth with the Sun, and on deeper levels with the Great Central Sun.  This, in turn, will assist in the creation of an archetypal communication between the Sun and Earth, to help us to more fully embrace a “Golden Age.”

” ‘Several weeks ago, one of our group received the message that “it is time to tap within.”  She was shown bubbles of light building up around the two Energy Centres of Uluru and Kata Tjuta.  She could see Aboriginal people singing this Energy into a bubble, then the waters breaking from an amniotic sac.  A pale blue, Crystalline Light and then a mauve Light built up around it.  She was told that part of the DNA of the Aboriginal people is vibrating and contributing to the birthing/activation.

” ‘We’re asking people to please send Energy to the Ngaltawaddi Ceremony being held at Uluru, located in the Northern Territory, Australia, on 12 January 2020, and to visualize the Cosmic Umbilical Cord being healed.”
” ‘Here are words to assist this healing of the World Solar Plexus Chakra:

” ‘Let the sun shine on Uluru and Kata Tjuta,
” ‘Let the Pathway of the Rainbow Serpent be clear,
” ‘So that greater health and vitality may circulate
Throughout the World to bless All Beings;
” ‘Today, breathe —– relax —– smile—- and give thanks to the Earth.’ ”
The Conjunction is Exact at 9am PST.
Here’s my Response…
“Here’s part of my take so far on the 12 January Saturn-Pluto Conjunction…

“Six things I didn’t explicitly include in that post…

“1. This ‘Event that will Focus the Attention of everyone on the Planet and Change the World – as seen from Huperville(which is what a Saturn-Pluto Conjunction means; think ‘9/11’ for instance) is seriously Challenged by (the “Square” between Saturn-Pluto and…) Revelation of That Which Has Been Ignored (dwarf planet Eris).

“2. Two planets are Outliers.  One way of looking at astrology would make those two planets the ‘Rulers’ of the entire chart.  The two symbolize Growth in Consciousness (asteroid Juno) and Our Instincts and the Feminine Perspective (the Moon), which are Very Strong (Stationary).

“3. In our historical and hysterical example of ‘9/11,’ the actual Saturn-Pluto event preceded the Earthly event by several weeks.  The Earthly event occurred when another astroevent which is very often a Trigger for larger events (the Moon, which began a new 11-year period of going Out of Bounds), which event can tend to make Hupers more Emotional, Triggered it.  That other event will repeat on the Ides of March 2020 (the evening, PST, of 16 March).

“4. The quotation mentions a ‘blast of Divine Light and Energy.’  While it’s been a possibility for years, it’s in the news again lately that the Star Betelgeuse may be about to Explode into a Supernova or Nova (et tu, Betelgeuse?).  That would be fitting.  According to Bernadette Brady, Betelgeuse is one of the most Benevolent Entities in the Sky. Currently, Betelgeuse Illuminates (Opposes) the Symbol for Climate Change (dwarf planets Quaoar and Pholus on the Cusp of Capricorn) and is Challenged by (T-Square to) Our Relationship with our Karma (asteroid Karma Conjunct dwarf planet Chiron)do we Regard it as a Curse or a Doorway to Liberation?  That’s important because if we seek Enlightenment, we need to adopt the latter Perspective.  (Details at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/12/27/survival-or-bust-viii-heavy-karma/.)

5. Mercury, the symbol for Awareness, which I usually mostly ignore because I focus more on what’s going on for us Unconsciously, will be Unusually Strong (just returning from being Out of Bounds).  (See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/12/22/oob-mercury/.)

“6. From my own astroview, the most prominent thing about this Saturn-Pluto Conjunction is that it is an important milestone (taking place as it does while Uranus is Stationary) in a larger trend, which is the Descent of Soul into Matter (Uranus in Taurus), which some refer to as “Ascension” (Ascend, Descend, it all depends on your point of view – we’d be clever to just call it a Merging of Soul and Ego).  (See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/11/07/january-2020-i/).

2020 The Year… 3

December 31, 2019

A friend writes…

Been imagining lately, and this is sort of metaphysically far-fetched, but, if our reality really is malleable, and if it really is created by the thoughts of the collective masses, then, if enough people could imagine healing what has been damaged, then, could we actually magically clean the waters…?”

Which clarifies my thoughts about the previous post…

“Unfortunately, our Unconscious Thoughts have more Power than our Conscious Thoughts, which is why we need so badly to Embrace our Held Emotions.  Anything in us that is flying under our radar, is in Control.  Do we seek Justice, or do we seek Peace?  The Bottom Line [in the previous post] appears to be how we deal with our Abuse.  It has to be from Unconditional Self-Love, Taking our Power, and Respect for All Things.  And yes, if we knew how to do this we would have done it long ago, so we also need to Surrender to the Larger Process, whatever that is, and let the Heart’s Light Guide us, NOT the mind…”

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that we place emphasis on the Stations – the times when a planet appears, from our vantage point on Earth as we go ’round the Sun, to Slow Down then Stop and then Turn Around and go the other way.  We emphasize Stations this because we’ve Observed that the influence of the planet is very Strong at these times.  So when we look at a chart, the Stations and the T-Squares are what we look for first, because in our Experience they’re prominent in how we Experience the chart.

A planet is “Stationary” when it’s moving very Slowly, and its “Exact Station” is when it Stops.  As for the influence of the Station upon us, it in general increases as we get closer to the Exact Station, then abruptly decreases.  However, if we don’t Realize that we’re being overly influenced by the Station, then we can make Decisions to Protect our Ego, and those Decisions can impact our Lives far beyond the Exact Stations, in some cases becoming new Karma (this Decision process describes the impact of dwarf planet Orcus, which is Lit Up in the recent Vesta Station chart which is part of the 1 January 2020 complex).

For the 1 January 2020 chart, the chart for the “birth” of the Year and the Decade, we’ve already talked about the Station of dwarf planet Makemake, which symbolizes Manifestation.  To use it as an example, Makemake is Challenged (T-Squared) by our Held Emotions or Existing Karma (Jupiter-South Node), the Emotions we’d rather Die than Feel.  That’s not usually a Physical Death, though it certainly can be.  When we feel like “I’d rather Die!” we’re usually putting the emphasis on the  Die  part.  But it’s actually on the  I  part, because “I’d rather Die” is an Expression of the Need for an Ego Death, or a Molt of our Identity.

Ego Deaths are not pleasant, simply because we feel like we’re Dying, and in fact, We Are, because our Ego is who we Believe ourselves to Be, and when our Ego Dies, “We” Die.  When the process works, we Molt, the Sun comes back up and we become Reborn, after which we Identify as a New, more Comprehensive Ego.  Other than Feeling Dazed, we don’t usually conceptualize our Molts that way.  If we can possibly Reprogram ourself to Recognize the symptoms of Ego Death while we’re in the throes, and then Focus on Who We Might Become Later instead of How Miserable We Feel at that moment, we may be able to become Adept at the process, making Life incredibly Easier and more “Productive,” where by “Productive” we mean moving toward Enlightenment more expeditiously.

That doesn’t mean we can skip the Feeling Miserable part – we get to Rising Above Feeling Miserable only by Diving Deeply into it.  Only when we can be Neutral about All of our Emotions (including Arrogance), when we can Receive them as Information about what’s going on (e.g., Arrogance doesn’t mean we’ve become Enlightened, it means we’re being Overinflated), rather than Merging our Identity with our Emotions and/or becoming their Victim, only then will we approach the “Ascension” we Want for the Planet, and make our own effective Contribution to its Collective Energy.

For example, the Makemake/Manifestation Challenge that we talked about in the earlier post, had “something to do with” (Quincunx/Curiosity) Abuse and Privilege (Nessus).  So, maybe (Quincunx again) if we can’t extract ourself from Merging totally with our Abuse Memories and find our Observer Self to look back at ourself and Witness our Regressed and Present-Moment Emotions (perhaps by for instance, Poor-Sweethearting ourself, or using a trick like Asking what color is the wallpaper) and Accept these Emotions Compassionately and Fully, maybe we might make a Decision Never to Allow Ourselves to be Vulnerable again or something like that.

Well, a Decision or Vow like that, carried forward, will cause us to miss out on many of the best parts of Living.  Chances are, since Abuse has been a prominent characteristic of Huperity since the Beginning of Time, that was how we Created our Karma in the first place, eons ago.

Or, maybe rather than Feeling Gratitude for Good Fortune, we patted ourself on the back and Gloated about our Superiority, and we made a Decision that Ripping off our “Inferiors” was a great way to Enjoy Life, and got Attached to our Privilege.

Goddess Knows this is pretty much what’s been going on since the 1980s, with Hupers sorting themselves into the 1% and the 99%.  In the juxtaposition of Manifestation (Makemake) with Abuse/Privilege (Nessus), this Polarity may increase to the point of Breaking as we move into the new Decade.  What we need to do is maintain our Curiosity about it (Quincunx), rather than thinking we Know what’s going on.  If we can maintain Neutrality, we can Agitate for one side or the other (Equality or Superiority, Gratitude or Arrogance) without getting Attached to Outcomes.  We might even be able to seek Common Ground.

If you think Passion and Neutrality are oxymoronic, you’re stuck in “Left Brain” Duality.  It may be a Paradox to Live with both Passion and Neutrality dialed to a high level, but it’s not a Contradiction.  Contradictions exist only in Duality, and Reality is Multifarious and Unitary.

We say all this to introduce the fact that a second planet is also Stationary, the asteroid Klotho, which is about Starting a New TimeLine, where a TimeLine can be a Habit, a LifeTime, a job, a Relationship, or anything else that can be seen to have a Beginning and an Ending.  In our next installment we’ll look at the impact of the Klotho Station on 2020 and beyond.

2020 The Year… 2

December 30, 2019

As we said, there are three snapshots of the 1 January 2020 chart, for the Year and the Decade, that merit closer examination.  Well, actually, there are four, but we’ve already done one, because that one’s essentially the same as the Vesta Station chart we looked at in Beliefs, Values, Identity at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/12/29/beliefs-values-identity/, the one where we’re adding a cup or two of Unconditional to our Self-Love brew.

In the second one, we’re figuring out how much Abundance we Deserve.

You caught that oxymoron right off, eh?

We don’t Deserve Abundance, it’s our BirthrightAny Not-Deserving is our own Personal (Karmic) Limitation (dwarf planet Makemake/Manifestation, which is Exactly Stationary/Strong on 4 January at 9pm PST, makes a T-Square/Challenge across the Nodal Axis/Karma-and-Mission).  It’s not Out There, it’s In Here.  And like it or not, it’ll be In Our Face in 2020 and beyond (Sun/Essence and Jupiter/Expansion sit on the South Node/Karma – see below).

We can Wipe it Off by Noticing it, Owning it as Ours, Facing it, Enduring it, Becoming Present with it and Neutral about it, Embracing it, and Reframing it as a Skill we’re In Love with.  Hardest thing we’ll ever do, but it’s Exactly what we came here for, because we’ll only be Pretending that it’s ours so we can Own it.  It’s really a small piece of Mother Earth’s Karma, and by doing this we’ll be Letting It Go for Her.  Our Body is an Electromagnetic Energy Transformer, and the “Shit” we’ve adopted – our Held Emotions, the Ones we’d rather Die than Feel – as Our Own is Exactly what needs to be Transformed.

You’re Wanting the Planet to Ascend?  Well, it’s not something that Happens, it’s something that We Do, and this is Exactly how it’s done.  Unfortunately (you won’t like this), it explicitly includes the Abuse we’ve Endured (dwarf planet Nessus/Abuse makes a Trine Bridge/Easy-Way-to-Resolve-the-Challenge across the Makemake T-Square).  We aren’t talking Forgiveness, we’re talking about Recognizing that we Know How it Happens, and Practicing with our Boundaries until we have Complete Confidence that we know how to Safely Prevent it from Happening again.

It will be very important NOT to try to Understand HOW Abuse relates to Manifestation, as it will be Surprising, and if we try to Intellectualize it we’ll just freeze ourselves in our present situation around Abuse (Makemake and Nessus are connected by a Quincunx/Curiosity).  If we Understood the Spiritual Purpose of Abuse, we’d have Stopped it long ago.  The same goes for Privilege.  If we Believe we Know What We Want, then by all means we can PIAVA it.  But if we Believe we Know How to Get What We Want, we’ll probably be better off Letting that Go.  (PIAVA: https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/.)

As Alan Watts famously said, it’s harder to Let Go of our Good Karma than it is to Let Go of our Bad Karma.  So it also explicitly includes the Privilege we’ve Enjoyed (dwarf planet Nessus/Privilege is the other side of the Abuse Coin).  Dwarf planet Makemake, the Star of this Show, is about Manifestation, but it’s not about Avarice (except perhaps when it’s Afflicted).  Abundance means Having Enough To Share – and Sharing It.

Here’s the Makemake-Square-Nodes 1 January 2020 chart…

Jupiter Initiates a new Cycle with the South Node on 6 January in 8 Cancer, “A group of Rabbits dressed in Huper clothes walk as if on parade” – Wow, weird.  Rabbits, whose primary mode of Self-Defense is their Speed, are often associated with Fear.  Another virtue is their ability to multiply rapidly.  They aren’t running here, they’re walking, and for some reason parodying (perhaps) Hupers. 

Faeries entertain themselves no end by imitating Hupers; this sounds familiar.  Is this a military exercise, where the Rabbits symbolize the Fear that hides beneath all the Bravado of Soldiers? 

Survival or Bust IX Lightening Karma

December 28, 2019

Here’s a shot of our 25 December 2019 Annular Solar Eclipse, captured in the Wild by Shahrin Ahmad, from Oman…

https://spaceweather.com/archive.php?view=1&day=28&month=12&year=2019

Yes, good question; is our Karma Getting Lighter, or is it Striking us like a Bolt from the Sky?  Technically, the “e” should clarify that, but as asteroid Karma crosses Chiron, it could be either.  With Chiron though, symbolizing as it does both Despair and Miracle, we have our Trusty Swiss Army Incantation for Bummers.  Say it aloud or silently, but speaking to yourself…

You Poor Sweetheart, you feel like you’ve been
Struck by Lightning, don’t you.
or
You Poor Sweetheart, you feel [whatever doesn’t
Delight you], don’t you.

Two caveats.  First, this isn’t an Exclamation, it’s just a Neutral statement of fact.  And second, do be Mindful to Change the Subject after you say it.  If you keep thinking about the Bummer, you dump yourself right back into the Muck.  You may even need to say, “You Poor Sweetheart, you can’t Change the Subject, can you.” or Tap (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4) on “Even though I can’t seem to Change the Subject, I deeply Love and Accept myself.

The purpose of Tapping is to Align your Thoughts and Feelings with your Energy System, as you Tap on the ends of each Meridian.  Since Bummers are usually Imbalances, fixing your Alignment often mitigates your Discontent.  So Tapping involves “I” statements, and the general “rule” about avoiding Negativity does not apply.  You Recognize the Negativity that you’re already Embracing.

The purpose of Poor-Sweethearting on the other hand, is to Step Out of your Bummer, so you Salute yourself, kindly and gently and without Judgment, from the other side of the Mirror.  It sounds like a grammatical trick, but it’s much more than that.  It actually changes your Perspective, which is necessary because “you can’t solve a Problem using the same thinking that postulated it.”

Poor-Sweethearting is also very different from Denial, because you’re Empathizing with yourself wearing the Bummer.  Before Poor-Sweethearting you were Identified with Bummer, now you’re Identified with Compassion for yourself.  Even if you don’t succeed at Changing the Subject, you’ve Experienced at least a moment of Unconditional Self-Love.

Chironean Miracles are subtle.  When you do succeed at Changing the Subject, you simply aren’t the same “You” that you were when you were wearing the Bummer.  Our Beliefs-of-the-Moment determine how we Interpret the World outside ourself, and in turn whether we Perceive someone to be Smirking about us or Smiling at us.  The World surrounding Compassionate-You contains events and things and Feelings that simply weren’t Possible in the World surrounding Bummer-You.  Those are the Miracles.

You may be too young to remember that old Xerox commercial…

And speaking of Beliefs-of-the-Moment, as we speak asteroid Vesta is very Strong (Stationary), peaking 29 December (2:30 pm PST).  Vesta symbolizes exactly that, our Beliefs-of-the-Moment.  While Multiple Personality Disorder, if they still call it that, is more extreme than most of us Experience, we all have many different Personalities or “Sub-Personalities,” and it’s our Beliefs-of-the-then-Moment that differentiate them.  Many of our Sub-Personalities have never met one another, because they take turns.

But we’re getting ahead of ourself, as we were supposed to be filling out our Interpretation of the Chiron-Karma Initiation chart (the second chart in the previous post) that’s Exact on 1 January 2020 (1pm PST).  The primary difference between Karma’s Aries-Ingress chart (the first chart in the previous post) and Karma’s Initiation-by-Chiron chart, is the addition of a major Challenge (T-Square) to our Vitality (dwarf planet Varuna) that’s about the relationship between our Fate (asteroid Moira) and our Soul (Uranus).

Remember that with Uranus now in Taurus, Soul is Descending into Flesh, and we will be Experiencing Physical Discombobulations while Flesh remodels for its new Tenant.  Soul will be taking the room where Ego used to Sleep.  Ego may throw a hissy-fit, but both Soul and Taurus are pretty Stubborn, so on some level, Ego will have to Compromise.  The close Involvement of Fate (Moira) suggests that Ego may have to Let Go of enough Karma to ease its Resistance.  The symbol for Ego Death (asteroid Nemesis) isn’t directly Involved, so Ego’s usual Resistance may be reduced.

If we look closely though, we see that this Challenge is Self-Resolving (the T-Square forms a Diamond Star with dwarf planets OR10 and Quaoar-Pholus).  So the Body will be getting its own Instructions from its Survival Instincts (Quaoar-Pholus) and its own Memories (OR10), and it will Behoove us to Accept its Ancient Wisdom.  As an alternative to Experiencing Pain and Discomfort as Dis-Ease and “Something’s Wrong,” we might try Reframing it to be a Map of Imbalance that can use our Active, Loving Involvement in Rebalancing.  Tapping can be very useful for that, if you don’t have an Acupuncturist handy.

 

Survival or Bust VIII Heavy Karma

December 27, 2019

Since our Big Deal astroevent  is unfolding on a Cusp (Jupiter-Quaoar-Pholus on the Cusp of Capricorn), any planet that Changes Signs will trigger It in one way or another, including the 27 December 2019 (8:30 pm PST) Ingress of asteroid Karma (Karma) into Aries.  This might (already) be a rough Transition, since Capricorn (Let’s Fix It) and Aries (Let’s Start Over) tend to Compete with one another, and since Chiron (Despair/Miracles) is guarding the Gate of Aries.

But when we get past these gauntlets, What A Relief!!  Karma in Pisces is all about Trauma Dramas, not for the sake of Drama, but because Pisces’s job as the Last Sign is Letting Go of Emotional Baggage and Held Emotions, and there’s no better way to Let Go than Drama.  On the other side of the Gate, Aries has neither History nor Herstory, but a Clean Slate.  We may Experience some tests of our Ego’s Relationship to Spirit, especially as Karma crosses Chiron, which it does on 1 January 2020 (1pm PST), at 2 Aries.  But other than that, Karma in Aries could mostly feel like a walk in the Park on a lovely Spring day.

The five-year Karma-Chiron Cycle is about whether we’re Victims of our Long-Term Self-Sabotage Patterns, or we Choose to Alter them to our Advantage.  The latter Choice may take much Trial and Success and many False Starts, so we’ll also need Commitment and Dedication.  It will be very important to Remember that Angels Can Fly because They Take Themselves Lightly.

Most of the time most of us don’t even stop to consider whether we’re Victim to our Karma, we just are.  We seldom Realize that we have any Control over it, or even Conceive of the Possibility.  We may not even Notice that the Patterns are Recurring, so we may not even Regard it as Karma, just “bad things that happen to good people,” Randomly.  So long before there’s any Option to Choose to Alter our Karmic Patterns, we need to Get Conscious of them.

Well, there’s an App for that.  Er, I mean, there’s an asteroid for that, for Getting Conscious, in fact two of them, and one of them also “happens to be” Changing Signs on 1 January 2020 (5am PST).  Remarkable, these Coincidences, eh?  The asteroid is Moira, which was named after the Greek Goddess of Fate – aka Karma.  We’re all Helpless in front of our Fate … as long as we’re Unconscious of it.  Once we’re Conscious of our Fate, it’s Replaced by Choice.  Not always an Easy Choice, but Choice nevertheless. Scorpio is the Sign Moira is entering, which is all about Getting to the Bottom of Things.  Very handy.

Here’s Karma’s 27 December Aries Ingress chart…

In this chart Karma/Karma Challenges (Squares) our popular Survival or Bust Complex (Ixion-Pholus-Quaoar, joined now by Mercury/Awareness), implying that some of our Karmic Self-Sabotage may actually Threaten our Survival.  We don’t need to name names, but if we Project this onto the World Stage, we can see how events could Converge into Survival Threats for someone who isn’t very Conscious of their Karma.

The second Challenge in Karma’s Aries-Ingress chart applies to our Instincts (Moon) about the sort of Life we could be leading if not for our Self-Sabotage (Moon Square Moira-Haumea).  For instance, we could be Painfully Aware of how much our Karma Threatens our Well-Being, and while Painful Awareness might help Motivate us to Want to Change, it may also make it more Difficult to Launch our New Path.  If it does, don’t Worry about it.  While these Energies are Important and Powerful place settings for January’s Big Energy (Focusing on Transformation), by the Ides of January they’ll seem trivial.

We’ve plopped a Fixed Star into this chart and the one that follows.  If you’re old enough you may Remember the movie Beetlejuice that came out in 1988, in the middle of the Harmonic Convergence.  We’ve added the Star Betelgeuse because it’s also on a Cusp, but mostly because some old news about how it could turn Supernova any day now…

https://www.space.com/22009-betelgeuse.html

…is in the news today.  While Betelgeuse has a Reputation as a Star of Ultimate Benevolence, I’ll have to do some major Reframing in order to come to that Perspective about it’s influence in my own nativity.  It Seriously Challenges Karma-Chiron and our Survival Instincts (making the Karma-Chiron to Ixion-et al Square into a T-Square).

The 1 January Chiron Initiating Karma chart, which can double as Moira’s Scorpio Ingress chart, follows…

…but I keep face-planting into the keyboard, so I’m going to have to save its interpretation for morning.

We’re also deep into the 29 December (2:30 pm PST) Station of Vesta/Beliefs.
