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

March 26, 2017

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?

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… 

https://www.theguardian.com/science/2017/mar/16/gaslighting-manipulation-reality-coping-mechanisms-trump

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

http://farts.typepad.com/photos/uncategorized/2007/11/30/turbofart_2.jpg

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.

Cutting the Cloth VII and Aries Week II

March 16, 2017

In the arenas where we’ve achieved or otherwise enjoy some sort of Mastery, the sense of relative Control feels exquisite.  But then there are the other arenas of Life.  And it’s not actually about Control, it’s about Surrender.  It Feels to me like we’re already into “Aries Week” – time to reread…

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/03/08/aries-week-let-it-all-hang-out/ 

Bottom Line…

It’s all about Healing, but if we’re Ego-Attached to any of our Wounds [or any of our Achievements], the Healing Crisis will have to involve Ego Death.  It wouldn’t be surprising if this is what we Took Birth for…  We could easily make the case that the primary astroEnergy bathing us in late 2016 and early 2017 [and especially in late March] is a Struggle between Fear and Self-Love.  Love is Soft and Warm, Fear is Cold and Hard.  Love Heals, Fear is the Foundation for continued Separation and Pain.  “Love” means Unconditional Love.  The sort of Love that Expects something in Return is another category altogether.”

If we’re Struggling to Manifest something and it’s not working, we have to Love Ourself for that too.  How do we Love a Wound without Expecting something – like Healing for instance – in Return?  Lots of Tapping, perhaps?  Poor-Sweethearting the part of ourself that’s craving the Healing?  Looking into the Funhouse Mirror to see if there are other things we’re actually craving more than Healing?  Other cravings which may be holding back the Healing – or which the Universe thinks we need to Heal more than what our Ego wants to Heal, and It’s just using the Frustrating Wound to get our Attention?

The contest this week and next probably isn’t directly about Self-Love versus Fear; it’s probably more about Self-Love versus Self-Abandonment and Self-Doubt.  We have very Powerful Skills we aren’t using – we may not even be Aware of them – and the Universe may be Teasing us our Frustration, trying to get our Ego to open up to the unseen.  If you find Confusion, know you’re on the right track.  Don’t try to Disfuddle yourself; instead, Relax into the Confusion.  

Don’t-Know Beginners Mind is where we want to Be.  It’s all about Letting Go of Expectations and Judgments.  As Michael Roads says (From Illusion to Enlightenment p.94),”I need you to fully realize that you cannot change and remain the same.”  You could also be Feeling Pressure from Others.  Dealing with their Expectations and Judgments is a whole ‘nother story, especially if you Let them have Power Over you, or if they Want Power Over you.  

Sappho – Self-Love – has its 26 March Station and turns Back before it reaches Lilith, but the Station is Conjunct (Merged With) Lilith – Self-Sovereignty.  It will be mid-November by the time Sappho catches up with Lilith again, but the Initiation is intriguing – 2 Capricorn, “Three rose windows in a Gothic church, one damaged by war: The necessary realization by any individual making a violent use of collective power that it will lead to the inevitable destruction of some of the values ensuring group-integration.”

The 25 March Station of Ixion – Forbidden Genius – is also still Conjunct Saturn – Focus, or what we usually refer to as The Most Important Thing, since it implies suspending all priorities of lesser import.  The nascent Saturn-Ixion Cycle began mid-February at 26 Sagittarius, “A flag bearer in a battle” – a flag represents an Identity, particularly a Group Identity.  

Ixion and Saturn are Channeling the Galactic Center here, so we can interpret this as the necessity of moving to our Galactic or “Fifth-Dimension” Identity, the one that emphasizes Collaboration, Cooperation, Respect for All Things, and Shared Abundance, rather than Competition, Success and Failure, Privilege and Abuse, Duality, and Greed.  But we do this by Shifting our Frequency, not by “battle” or “war” or “violence.”

The two Stations bracket Sagittarius – Sappho at the Beginning and Ixion near the End.  Sagittarius is about Letting Go and Letting the Goddess.  So along the way we may be Grieving the Loss of some cherished “Third-Dimensional” Ego props, like Expectation, Judgment, Control, even Mastery.  Try putting Awe in their place.

Aries Week: Let It All Hang Out

March 8, 2017

So you can plan your month: a warning that the last few weeks of March will be wild, as five planets are Very Strong (ie, Stationary) in the last two weeks.  The first bolus includes…

  • Our Forbidden Genius (dwarf planet Ixion) 25 March 8pm PST in 27 Sagittarius
  • Self-Love (asteroid Sappho) 26 March 3am PST in 1 Sagittarius

The first week of Aries, 21-25 March, will be a fantastic week for Owning and Embracing our Abandoned Genius, as both Ixion and Sappho are Stationary at the same time.  We can expect to have “ridiculous” Forbidden urges.  It would be good practice to Act them Out, if we can stay Safe and they don’t harm or invade anybody.  Ixion is still in the same Degree as Saturn, making our Lost Genius The Most Important Thing in our Life.  And astrology aside, Self-Love is always the most important thing in Life.

Abandoned-Genius Recovery (Saturn-Ixion) is still the Strongest corner of the Big Picture (the Grace-full Golden Rectangle).  Well, the corner that continues to force us to insist on Honesty in ourselves and others, like it or not, is pretty Strong too (Uranus-Eris) – the News King Mirrors that to us par excellence, just in reverse.  Oh, and the Big Rebirth corner (Jupiter-Haumea) is no slouch either.  And we can’t ignore the End-of-Limitations corner (Aletheia-Chaos).

Golden Rectangles in their own right are very Strong and very Positive Medicine.  It’s all about Healing, but if we’re Ego-Attached to any of our Wounds, the Healing Crisis will have to involve Ego Death.  It wouldn’t be surprising if this is what we Took Birth for.

Sappho has left its Yin Gate Opposition to Sedna (Fear/Anger), but since it’s turning Retrograde, it will recreate the Yin Gate for three weeks in April-May.  Sappho is still Opposing Aletheia (Truth), so it’s not to be Denied in the interim.

We could easily make the case that the primary astroEnergy bathing us in late 2016 and early 2017 is a Struggle between Fear and Self-Love.  Love is Soft and Warm, Fear is Cold and Hard.  Love Heals, Fear is the Foundation for continued Separation and Pain.  “Love” means Unconditional Love.  The sort of Love that Expects something in Return is another category altogether.

March IVb – Venus-Envy

March 3, 2017

Anxious?  The Retrogradation of Venus “is” (as without, so within) the Descent of Inanna, where the Goddess is systematically stripped of Her Olde Ego.  If you haven’t read Starhawk’s Truth or Dare, her wonderful Manifesto of Power-With, now is the time to do it.  Whatever you’re Anxious about today, probably identifies the Ego/Beliefs/Limitations that are about to be rinsed away over the next six weeks.

Tapping this morning on “I am scared about…” I realized that I was strongly emphasizing the first word, the “I” part.  So I Tapped on “I am that I am” instead, which quelled the mental noise and left the Apprehension in the Body – which is at least closer to Truth, and Feels that way.  Tapping on just “I’m Scared” several times reduces the intensity of that.  

I’m reminded of a snippet of an old Mel Gibson film I saw once.  Some monster of a guy was threatening to beat the krap out of him and he says, “Are you going to kill me?”  And the monster says “Whazzamatta, you scared?”  And Gibson says “No, I’m just trying to plan my day.”

So yes, given the state of the World and an imminent Descent into Ego Death, a measure of enduring vague Fear is probably appropriate.  It might be a good time to try out the Violet Fire…

http://suzanneliephd.blogspot.co.uk/2017/02/blazing-violet-fire-through-suzanne-lie.html

I’m lost without the Anxiety, because if I don’t know what ills may befall me I don’t know what to Do to protect myself from them.  Which is actually good, since Anxiety seldom makes accurate predictions, excepting self-fulfilling prophesies.  As is so often the case, Daniel Scranton’s Arcturian Channeling for today addresses the issue succinctly…

http://danielscranton.com/go-beyond-thought-∞the-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

Of course he doesn’t call it that, or even refer directly to it, but he’s basically talking about PIAVAing.  In case you’re new here, that means…

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

Rather than What To Do to Protect myself from What I Fear, PIAVA suggests I focus on What I Want.  I mean, if I’m Anxious about those things, it means I’m not fully prepared for them, so Ego Death around them is a great Outcome, as it may well Liberate me from my Limiting Beliefs around them, which would be a huge boon.  An imminent Ego Death is cause for Celebration, though I haven’t Breathed enough yet to get to Excitement.  So I can try PIAVAs on the order of “May I be relieved of cause for Anxiety around…”

And it helps to recall that my Anxieties were around issues I’ve previously PIAVAed about – that’s a call to Pay Attention.  When I do Pay Attention I understand immediately that these Anxieties are Up so I can Let Go of them.  The Archetype, the Karmic Pattern to be Broken, is Worry, intellectualizing the Emotional and Physical.  As for the vague Apprehension – just an exercise in Soft Belly.

Whenever Ego Death lurks, we should Ask, Where is Nemesis?  In ten days she crosses Pluto.  A Pluto Ego Death should be a big one.  Turns out that today is the day when Nemesis comes within our usual standard of three Degrees of Sensitivity to Pluto.  Nemesis-Pluto is a five-year Cycle, taking us up to – haven’t we seen this number recently? – 2022.  The Initiation is 13 March at 4am in 20 Capricorn – “A hidden choir singing,” invoking Heaven.  So perhaps just PIAVAing Heaven on Earth would be appropriate, though it’s Scary to contemplate the potential Healing Crises from that!  What the Hell, though, we’re already Scared.

The next Question that pops to mind, Where is Eurydike – Trust?  The Eurydice Myth was all about Trusting that Escape from Pluto’s Realm was possible!  This deserves an essay all its own…

Asteroid Eurydike is one foot of another Flying Squirrel Configuration that features three Fingers of God, pointing at 

  • Eurydike (Trust) itself, from the Sextile between Mercury-Neptune (Confusion) and Hylonome-Juno-Chariklo (Becoming Conscious of Charismatic Archetypes
  • Hopi (Respect for All Things), across the Sextile from Mnemosyne-Ceres (Remembering How to Create Sustainability) to Mercury-Neptune
  • Mercury-Neptune at the head of the Kite Opposite Karma-Orcus (Breaking Archetypal Oaths) at the Midpoint between Hopi and Eurydike

Mercury-Neptune – Blessed Confusion – is in charge of the whole Eurydike Configuration.  Neptune Initiates Mercury at 4am PST on 4 March at 12 Pisces, being “tested” as we are Initiated into a new phase of our Spiritual Evolution.  Okay.
