No. III

September 16, 2018

To No. II a reader responds…

“This feels like a personal horoscope.”

Alas, that’s the way it is for so many of us!  For anyone unfamiliar with Nessus, these articles would probably be valuable…

It should be no surprise, given the way astrology has been so explicit lately, that Lilith, Goddess of Self-Sovereignty Herself, is Lit Up while Hylonome is Standing Still.  And Lilith is Merged in the 17 September Hylonome-Station chart with the South Node, repository of our Held Emotions, aka Karma, Mirroring the Grand Cross of No. II

Our Held Emotions are the ones we’ve Repressed because we’d rather Die than Feel them.  Because they require an Ego Death in other words.  I mean, who would be crazy enough to go into an Ego Death voluntarily!?!? 

Well, I hope that I convince you to do exactly that if you read this blog long enough, because Ego Death is the fastest road to Growth in Consciousness, Liberation, Ascension, Spiritual Progress, Manifesting What You Really Want, Achieving your Lifetime Mission, ending the Heartbreak of Psoriasis, and all the other Good Things I hope you Aspire to.

You can see that Lilith-South Node anchors one end of the base of a Venus T-Square (red triangle – it’s called a “T-Square” because when you draw lines from the center of the Zodiac to each planet, it makes a “T”).  A T-Square is a Challenge to become Adept at something, in this case, Adept at adapting your Values (Venus) to Embrace your Self-Sovereignty in spite of Cultural Pressure to do otherwise.

That includes Cultural Pressure embedded in our own Programming, as we’re taught that Comfort is Good and Discomfort is Bad.  Imagine if you had been taught that Tolerating Discomfort is the pathway to Grace.  Not as the PieInTheSky religions have done, but as the esoteric branches of many religions have done, in teaching techniques to make Tolerating Discomfort more Comfortable and Productive at Liberating us from our Birdcages.

Every day I’m encountering people who are still trapped in the Fear and Anger and Potentially Rough Week series that we dealt with in late August (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/21st-century/the-teens-2010-2019/2018/august-2018/).  If we don’t “do our work” when it’s timely, we carry it with us, and Life gets more and more complicated as the Old and New Energies Confuse one another.  We Create new Held Emotions. 

When we do “do our work when it’s timely,” we’re less Compromised when we Encounter the New Energy, and better able to deal with it as a Main Effect, rather than having to deal with it as Interaction with all of our other Unfinished Business.  We enter a constantly-improving Virtuous Spiral rather than a “downward” Vicious-Cycle Whirlpool.

There’s a chart and some discussion of the December 2017 Lilith-Venus Initiation (and hence the current Venus-Lilith Cycle) at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/12/30/new-province-iii/.  “Coincidentally,” the Lilith-Venus Initiation Conjoined Hylonome!  It was at 6 Capricorn, “Ten logs lie under an archway leading to darker woods.”  Ten means Abundance, though the logs are still raw material.  The suggestion is that a Portal into the Wilderness (or, “doing our work while it is timely”) offers great Potential.

Bottom Line: if our Values seem to Conflict with our Urge toward Self-Sovereignty (which we can define as Making Choices that Lead us to Manifesting What We Really Want in the Lifetime), it’s our Values that need to be Examined and possibly Adjusted

The Self-Congratulation we use to support our Current Ego is based on our Values, but our Values are seriously Contaminated by our Programming, and may be very different from – and frequently the Opposite of – our Soul’s Desire.  Because we Live in Duality, our Soul is clever enough to Challenge our Ego to Grow by presenting the Ego with the Opposite of what the Soul Really Wants.  Like a parent using reverse psychology on their two-year-old.

Scared about your Survival?  Respond to it.  How?  Well, the first thing you need to do is find out whether your Fear is an Instinct about actual Likely Futures, or a Regression to Past Events or Lifetimes.  How?  Here’s the Strategy I use to differentiate…

Pholus (Ability to Respond) and Quaoar (Survival Instincts) are both Stationary on 12 September, Pbholus at 9am PDT in 28 Sagittarius on the Galactic Center, and Quaoar at 0:00 (!) Capricorn and 11pm PDT.

Of course Futures aren’t Determined yet, and if we Indulge our Karmic Fears overmuch, we can bend the Future in that Direction.  Every recurrence of a Karmic Pattern is an Opportunity to Let It Go or Grasp it a little tighter.  Karma doesn’t Grasp Us, We Grasp It.  That usually happens because we Confuse thoughts and Feelings.  We Feel Fear, which could be someone else’s Fear, an ambient astroevent, an Instinct, a Memory, a Regression, or an Alien landing on your head.

And then we start Thinking.  Omigod, what’s happening?  Am I gonna lose my job or my lover or my house or my Life?  It’s the Thinking that dooms us.  We Experience Emotions in the Body.  Fear, usually in the Belly or Bowels or the back of the Neck, sometimes the follicles, or we could Shake all over or Feel Cold.  Thinking doesn’t happen in the Body, it happens in that little Bubble over your head.

That’s the first step – Focus on what’s going on in your Body and Banish the Bubble.  What is it you’re Feeling, in your Body, and where is it?  Put your hand on it and Warm it – Love is Soft and Warm, Fear is Cold and Hard.  Soften it.  Send Energy to it from your Heart.  Keep Warming and Softening it till it Changes or Moves.  When you Notice that you’ve started to Think instead of Feel, Gently and Lovingly bring your Attention back to your Body.  Over and Over again. 

I know, you Think you have to Figure It Out, but that’s Bad Karma that you’re Grasping.  If you Figure It Out while you’re in Fear, you’re going to Manifest more Fear.  FIRST, Love your Fear into Submission, THEN when you Figure It Out it’ll be much Easier, Incredibly So.  In fact, you’ll probably find that Love has made most of the Difficulty disappear.

Give yourself a Poor Sweetheart if you want.  “You Poor Sweetheart, you can’t stop Thinking, can you.”   Or “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Really Scared, aren’t you.”

Now that whole process can take a while.  For something like an abscessed Tooth for instance, it might take you a couple of weeks of Focused Meditation.  I can tell you that moving from Fear to Love is the Most Important Thing you can ever do anytime anywhere in any Circumstance, but you may Think you don’t have the time.  There’s that Thinking again, eh?  I’ll tell you again that Thinking while you’re in Fear will help What-You-Fear Manifest.

But let’s add a quicker process anyway.  The first step in this process is to Tap on your Fear – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4.  “Even though I’m scared of [Whatever], I deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself” etc etc usw.  Or “Even though I can’t Stop Thinking and Making Up such Horrible Stories about What I’m Scared Of that I’ll probably Create it, I deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself.”  That may help immediately, but often we have to Tap several times till we get Clear.

The Sensation of Getting Out of a Fear Trance Feels much like Grounding – you Get Back Into your Body.  You may no longer be Making Up Horror Stories, but you still may be Curious about what made you so Scared.  So we can test whether our Fears are likely to come True, using Theta – https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2015/11/02/piavac/.  It’s a Ritual, so we recommend using the same wording every time…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All Things, I Command that [What I Want, rather than What I Fear].  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank you, God/Goddess. [Pause] Show Me.”

If you’ve been Fearing that you’ll Lose your Job, for instance, you might use something like “I Command that I’m Able to Keep my Job.”  Or better yet, something like “I Command that I Keep this Job or Effortlessly Stumble Into a better one with better pay and more fun.”

Then when you say “Show Me,” look to See what Picture you’ve Received.  If you don’t easily See Pictures when you close your Eyes, Command that you Are Able to do that.  Be Mindful when you’re Thinking a Picture instead of Seeing one.  If you See a Picture of yourself Doing your Job, you’re Golden.  If you don’t, then we need to Tap some more.  Your Fear about your Job has probably evolved since you’ve been Working with it.  Maybe now you Fear you’ll be Demoted instead of Fired.

So we’d Tap on something like “Even though I Fear I may be Demoted, I Deeply and Completely Love and Accept Myself.”  And maybe Theta with something like “I Command that I Get a Raise.”  We cycle back and forth between Tapping and Commanding till we get a result we like.  If we don’t get one, go back to Differentiating Feeling from Thinking and Loving your Feelings In Your Body for a while.

Tap on only Negative Outcomes, and Theta on only Positive Outcomes.  Tapping is about Recognizing the Truth of what’s going on in your Energy Field (it Feels Negative or you wouldn’t be Tapping), and Letting your Meridians Readjust themselves so you’re back in Balance.  You’d Tap on the likes of “I’m Scared I’ll Get Fired.” 

Theta on the other hand Reaches into the Unconscious, and the Unconscious does not Recognize Negation.  So if you Theta on “Not Getting Fired” you’re actually upping the odds that you’ll Get Fired.  So you’d Theta on Keeping your Job, or Getting a Raise or the like.

Phase 2 of our Adventures about The Most Important Thing Is Rebirthing Our Forbidden Genius is here, and it emphasizes the Rebirthing part, namely, the 7 September (3pm PDT) Klotho Station at 15 Degrees of – you guessed it – Capricorn.  Any Rebirth worth its salt involves an Ego Death, including this one…

Which includes Curiousness (Quincunx) between our Rebirth (the Stationary Klotho) and both Ego Death (Nemesis) and Self-Love (Sappho), which itself might be considered a Curious combination.  A new Cycle between these two began in early August (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/cycles/sappho-nemesis/), with an image about Little Kids being Excited about getting the Materialistic Gifts that they believed they Really Wanted.

True Curiosity Asks Big Questions without really expecting an Answer.  The Answer is eventually delivered by the Universe in mysterious ways, through Events and Occurrences.  But if we think we Know the Answer to the Question, we don’t get to Receive the Insightful Wisdom that the Real Answer holds.  The Questions are something like…

  • I Wonder what sort of Ego Death I’ll have to Endure to Rebirth my Forbidden Genius.
  • I Wonder what Unconscious parts of Myself I’m not Loving.
  • I Wonder what it would be like to Love my Ego Deaths.

There is one thing that’s fairly clear.  This adventure in Rebirthing Our Forbidden Genius as The Most Important Thing isn’t about Self-Judgment or Intention to Change.  It’s about Accepting, not Judging.  About Expanding to make room for the Previously Unknown, and Rebalancing everything to Integrate it all. 

What, you say, Saturn about Expanding?  That’s supposed to be Jupiter.  You forget that in the Unconscious, Opposites are Equals.  The Unconscious is Circular, not Linear.  If we try to make the Circular Unconscious Linear in order to make it Conscious, the only thing we’ve done is pour cement into Duality and Separation.  Instead, we have to make Consciousness Circular, even Spherical.

Hope You’re Rested

August 31, 2018

And ready for the next push.  For the next week, the Bottom Line is that

The Most Important Thing (Saturn) will be midwifing the Rebirth (Klotho) of our Forbidden Genius (Ixion),

as all three of these planets are Stationary between September 6 and 8.  The three Stations occur at different Degrees, so there will be three different but overlapping phases.

The Saturn phase, by itself, will be mostly about finding our Gratitude for the Quality of our Survival, and Embracing any remaining Habitual Victim Reactions we carry with us.  These will be Converted from Feeling “hard done by,” to new Patterns of Recognizing our Power and being Willing and Able to Respond to Improve the Outcome.  Of course this includes the Abuse or Victimization which drove our Genius into Hiding in the first place.

The Saturn Station Conjoins Quaoar (Survival Instincts), which is itself Stationary (Strong) from September 5-12, at the focus of both a Diamond Star (Challenge made Easy) and a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Blessings).  The T-Square (Challenge) in the Diamond Star rests on a base of Chiron (Despair and Miracles) Opposite Ceres (Sustainability) and Makemake (Manifestation).

I’ll include the three charts as we do each phase.

This Saturn phase, which Triggers your natal planets near 3 Degrees, will run through September 6, though of course your own degree of Sensitivity may shrink or stretch that span, or at least your Conscious Experience of it.

The Klotho phase, Triggering the Zone around 15 Degrees, will likely be Intensified for most of us from around September 4, through September 7.  The Mythological Klotho gave her name to the English word Cloth, because She literally Cut the Cloth from which our Timelines are stitched.  When we’re Unconscious, we have no Choice but to be Bounced Around by our “Fate,” so “we” don’t Choose the Cloth, it’s Chosen “for us” by the Unconscious.  As we become Conscious, however, we replace our Fate (Karma) with our Choices.

So in a very important sense, the Klotho phase is Critical, because this is where we Choose – or otherwise Unconsciously “Accept” – the Colors and Patterns of our Life for the near Future.  To quote Lord Melchizedek, Channeled by Natalie Glasson, “The energies anchoring at this time support openness, connection, empowerment, love and accessing your genuine self” (https://www.omna.org/accessing-what-you-need-now/).  And your Genuine Self, perhaps most importantly, includes your Forbidden Genius.  The Ixion (Forbidden Genius) phase, in 26 Degrees, spans September 2-8, give or take.

Ixion has an orbit 250 years long, far surpassing Klotho’s 52 months.  So in terms of Unconscious Power, Ixion’s Station will easily drown Klotho’s.  But the inner planets, with shorter orbits, derive their Power from Consciousness. 

There’s nothing Magical about this; Consciousness grows from Experience.  So for instance, Saturn will Initiate Klotho every four years and four months, while Ixion will Initiate Saturn only every 28 years. 

So if our window into Experience is through these Saturn Initiations (during which the Energies of Klotho and Ixion are respectively The Most Important Thing), we will have gained more than six times as much Experience with Klotho Energy as we have with Ixion Energy.  The many other windows will have similar or greater ratios. 

So simply by virtue of our Experience, we will be much more Aware of our New Beginnings (Klotho), than we are of our Forbidden Genius (Ixion).  Which gives Klotho more Conscious Power for us, and Ixion greater Unconscious Power over us.

Which means that our Klotho-Station Window, September 4-7, is a once-in-a-Lifetime Opportunity to get acquainted with our Forbidden Genius.  And since it’s The Most Important Thing, we may as well start now.

Start now doing what? 

Well, one of the more salient facts that we know about our Forbidden Genius, is that it’s Forbidden.  So we need to be on pins and needles this week Looking for any sign of Self-Censure, Guilt, Fear, Expectation of Punishment, Self-Condemnation, Self-Doubt, or Self-Judgment of any sort. 

And since by Tautology the Unconscious is Unconscious, we Project it onto other people.  So any inspiration you have this week to Censure, Guilt-Trip, Want to Punish, Condemn, Doubt, or Judge anyone else, Step into their Shoes.

I can never resist any Opportunity, no matter how inappropriate, to relate one of my favorite aphorisms… 

Before you Criticize anyone, Walk a Mile in their Shoes.  That way, when you Criticize them, you’re a Mile away and you have their Shoes.

What do we do when we find any sign of Self-Censure, Guilt, Fear or Expectation of Punishment, Self-Condemnation, Self-Doubt, or Self-Judgment of any sort?  We look to see what it is we’re Inspired to Condemn.  That is a snapshot of our Forbidden Genius.  It will be Important to Challenge your Resistance, and Speak or Act to Express your Genius. 

Not by Condemning it, by Acting it Out.  Pretend you’re in a Play.  Be Lighthearted and Humorous about it.  The people you Live and Work with will probably be Horrified – get used to that.  With a few exceptions, the people you Live and Work with are more likely to be Mirrors for your Cage, than Mirrors for your Liberation.

It will Feel Horrible the first twenty or a hundred times you do Speak or Act; Persevere!  Lovingly Embrace your detestable Internal Reactions.  Locate them in your Body, Warm them with your Hand, and imagine Softening around them.  This is what a Held Emotion Feels like, and Loving your Held Emotions to Death is exactly how we Liberate ourself from the chains of our Self-Sabotaging Unconscious Archetypes.  And the biggest Prerequisite to our Enlightenment or Ascension, to our entrance into Effortless Bliss.

We need to be Uncompromising in Confronting our Resistance.  That Resistance is the Result of the Abuse that Forbade our Genius, and we Overcome it by being Relentless.  Our Genius, as glimpsed this week, may look Mundane to us, but it ain’t.  It’s our Doorway to Heaven.  Take notes; it may be hard to Remember later.  We’re starting a Practice that we’ll be continuing for many years, at great profit to ourself and our Planet.

That’s the Big Picture.  The Klotho phase by itself is very concise; it’s a Big Ego Death.  We have to Learn to Celebrate those too, because as the Planet “speeds up” we’ll be Molting our Ego more often than we Choose to Change our Clothes.  Our Klothes, our Timelines, our Choices.

A super-simple chart – Klotho Conjunct Chariklo (Self-Confidence) Quincunx Nemesis (Ego Death) Conjunct Sappho (Self-Love), which Squares Neptune (We Are All One), which in turn Sextiles Klotho-Chariklo.

The Ixion phase by itself is also very concise; it’s all about Becoming Conscious of How to Convert Fear to Power, using Xenophobia as our fuel.

Interesting that Xenon is used as “rocket” fuel for Ionic Drive in Space.  Kind of an Infinite Irony Engine.

The astrology of the Ixion Station is almost entirely included in a Yin Gate (Mystery School, or Lessons in Accepting Paradox) with Hopi (Respect for All Things) on one side, and Juno (the Edges of Consciousness) on the other side along with Sedna (Fear and Power).  “You can’t make this stuff up,” as my Chief Asteroid Officer used to say.

Did I mention Manifestation?  Oh yeah, Makemake, with Ceres (Sustainability), Squares the Saturn Station.  So, as is completely appropriate for this exercise in Recovering our Forbidden Genius, part of the Saturn phase is that The Most Important Thing is to Make our Manifestation Skills Sustainable.  To which the aforementioned Lord Melchizedek has made a profound contribution today…

https://www.omna.org/accessing-what-you-need-now/

” ‘Calling forth from the Inner Planes’ is a process that not only allows you to re-recognise the bond and synthesis between the Earth and the Inner Planes, realising their oneness, it also allows you to step into your power, releasing all forms of lack.  ‘Calling forth from the Inner Planes’ is a simple process of calling the energies of the Inner places into manifestation within your physical reality. 

“It is the perception that all you require is within the Inner Planes, and [what you most need can] simply be anchored by you into your reality.  With this perception and belief embodied, meaning that it is unquestionably true for you, then the act of calling forth from the Inner Planes becomes a powerful and magical tool of creating your reality the way you wish to live it on the Earth.

“The Inner Planes Creates the Earth

“I, Lord Melchizedek, wish to guide you in a meditation to promote your understanding and experience of the abundance that you wish to experience on the Earth being present upon the Inner Planes…”

I’ll let Natalie lead you from here…

Making Sense

August 29, 2018

When Energies hang on past their “scheduled Time,” as they appear to be doing now for at least some of us, it’s often because we haven’t Finished Processing the Energy that’s “sticky,” or because we haven’t Let it Go.  Of course we expect the Energy in New and Full Moons to linger past the event itself, so let’s dive a bit deeper into a few corners of the incredible 26 August Full Moon chart, drawn in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/08/22/a-potentially-rough-week/.

We already written a bit about the Waning Saturn-Chiron Square, at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/08/27/a-potentially-rough-week-iv/, averring that it was already a done deal Energywise.  But that doesn’t mean we finished with the Energy.  We looked at the Waning Square in A Potentially Rough Week IV, but let’s look at the Cycle itself that’s Waning.

Chiron has an elliptical orbit, actually stretching beyond the orbit of Uranus for a while, then rushing back toward the Sun before finding its Perigee inside the orbit of Saturn.  This Pattern makes for some very unusual Astrology.  We interpret this as Chiron Receiving a Message from the Soul (Uranus) and conveying it to the Ego (Saturn), then taking a Response from Saturn back to the Soul.  The Ego, of course, is very Hard of Hearing, or pretends to be, so it sometimes takes a long time for Chiron to get Saturn to Listen to the Soul’s Message.  

Western or “Tropical” astrology uses only the position in the Sky as seen from Earth to compute the Angles between planets.  How close or distant the planets are to the Earth or the Sun isn’t included.  So the 62-year Saturn-Chiron Cycles we measure relative to the Earth, by Longitude, are pretty much independent of the 50-year Cycles of Chiron’s distance from the Sun with its apogee beyond the orbit of Uranus and its perigee within that of Saturn.

In the current Cycle, it took twenty years for the Saturn Ego to grok the Soul’s message!  The current Saturn-Chiron Cycle was Initiated way back in mid-April of 1966.  Saturn Opposed Chiron a full twenty-three times between 1986 and 2006!  While Saturn and Chiron were nearly the same distance from the Sun, they traveled at about the same speed, so they chased each other around the Zodiac for twenty years.  It’s a Wonder they didn’t turn into Butter.

Couldn’t we have a field day relating this to the Uranus-Pluto Cycle and the Harmonic Convergence!  Only Coincidence though, of course – right?

To be Clear, the current Saturn-Chiron Cycle began in April 1966.  The Waxing Square occurred in 1975-76.  And the Opposition repeated 23 times from 1986 till 2006.  The Waning Square happened in 2017.  The next Cycle won’t begin until June 2028.

And what does a Waning Square mean?  It means we have to Trust enough to Let Go and Let God/Goddess.  The old Cycle is winding down, and we want to be Meditating on Emptiness during this phase of the Cycle, so we can be Open to Receiving the New Energy as it’s Born, rather than Resisting it because we’re still Invested in the Energy of the old Cycle.

So, just What Was the Soul’s message that Saturn/Ego had such a hard time Hearing?  We know that by the Degree of the Initiation of the Saturn-Chiron Cycle.  That was 24 Pisces, “On a small island surrounded by the vast expanse of the sea, people are seen living in close interaction.”  Elsie could as well have said “surrounded by the vast expanse of Space.”  A photo of Earth rising over the Moon was first sent home in August 1966..

Stewart Brand’s first Whole Earth Catalog was published two years later…

Rodney King speaks pretty eloquently to the Cycle and its “living in close interaction,” along about the twelfth Opposition…

I think it’s safe to say that the Earth Herself “got the Message,” but many of the Hupers on Her still interpret “Close Interaction” as Exploitation, without even being Conscious of it.

This kind of puts an exclamation point on the fact that Saturn Conjoins our Survival Instincts – Quaoar – in the Full Moon chart that we’re working from.  We talk about the new Saturn-Quaoar Cycle in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/12/24/fateful-new-moon-iii-survival/.  The Saturn-Chiron Waning Square Can-Opener occurred at about the same time as the Quaoar-Saturn Initiation.  A couple of other posts from around those times add a lot to the context…

This Saturn-Quaoar is the odd-man-out in the Full Moon chart; all of the other T-Squares are embedded in and Completed by Grand Crosses, but the Saturn-Quaoar T-Square (with Chiron and Makemake) Opposes the Vacancy (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/08/22/a-potentially-rough-week/).

The Waxing Square that Saturn makes to Makemake (Manifestation) would also be an important contributor to this Dynamic.  The Saturn-Makemake Cycle Initiated in September 2009 at 26 Virgo, “A boy with a censer serves the priest near the altar.”  That’s an incense-burner, not someone who tells us what we can and can’t say, though the implication is there, not just in the homophone, but in the concept of blasphemy the priest wears on his sleeve.  And of course, unfortunately, any suggestion of a Boy and a priest implies Abuse.

A priest of course implies Duality – defining Right and Wrong.  Or Manifesting (Makemake) Profit or Loss rather than focusing on a Higher Purpose and Accepting with Gratitude what Flows from that.  The Boy assists in the Ritual, the incense Intending to Deepen the Trance and increase the Profit.  No Blame, I’ve gotten much Peace visiting as a stranger in Catholic Churches, when the Protestant Houses were locked tight.  In spite of it all, Spirit was There.

But let’s go with the incense-burner.  What Trance do you use for Manifestation, which is to say, What are your Beliefs about Manifestation?  Is Abundance your Birthright, or is it something you have to Steal, or Sacrifice your Health or your Pleasure or your Self-Respect for?  Does Abundance for you mean Having Enough to Share, or Having Enough to Waste?

Do you have to Compromise your Values to Support yourself?  I’ve been told that Guilt, or being Afraid that you’ll get “Caught” being an Imposter, means that you’re on the Edges of your Creative Self.  Is that True for you?  Are you on the Edge of your Competence?  Is that Scary, or too Comfortable?  Do you Recognize and Deal With Anxiety as Anxiety, or do you focus on the alleged Content of it, and let it fester into a chain of Negative Thoughts and Fears?  Which Consumes more of your Life – Anxiety, or Prayer?

Was 2009 for you about “The Most Important Thing is Manifestation”?  Did it Flow?  Effortlessly?  Or do you Experience Saturn as many astrologers Expect you to, as Limitation or Constraint?  Saturn Limits your Options because it’s advising you to focus on Priority Number One.  What is Priority Number One for you?  Does your sense of Obligation prevent you from putting your Fallbacks and Secondaries on hold while you narrow in on The Most Important Thing?  Do you Trust yourself to Take Care of yourself First?

It hasn’t been dominating recently, but a few years ago, as one of the prerequisites for today, there was a big Focus on Sustainability, where we Learned that the other side of the Sustainability Coin is Sustenance – Letting Go of what isn’t Necessary.  For the Greedy, Sustenance is a bad word, but many folks living a Sustenance Lifestyle feast on the Abundance of the Planet, with Prayer and Gratitude.  Yes, there will be a Fasting Season, but Calorie Restriction extends Life.

We can’t forget that Chiron Opposes Makemake in this Drama.  Which dominates your Manifestation – Pain and Despair, or Self-Empathy and Miracles?  “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Worried about Survival, aren’t you.”  Then, do you successfully Change the Subject?

A Potentially Rough Week IV

August 27, 2018

A friend who has Chiron Lit Up in their natal chart worries about the Saturn-Chiron Square in the Full Moon chart…

I interpret Saturn as The Most Important Thing, and Chiron as Despair and Miracles, so this Square means that The Most Important Thing is for us to convert our Despair to Miracles.  How to do that?  The best method I’ve found is Self-Empathy.  You just say to yourself, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Despair aren’t you,” and then Change the Subject.  If your mind comes back to the Despair, do it again, maybe Tapping it Out first.

When the mind is in Despair, We Are (Our Identity Is) Despair.  Doesn’t Feel good.  As soon as we step outside of our current Despairing Self and Empathize with ourself, We Become Compassion.  Despair and Compassion Live in entirely different Worlds, even though the road signs might be the same.  Miracles that are not even remotely Possible in the Despair Universe are entirely Probably and even Everyday in the Compassion Universe. 

Of course our major hurdle at that point is Expectation; the Miracles we’d like to see happen are unlikely, because they’re Miracles engendered from Despair, and unlikely to exist in a Compassion Universe.  What is likely to happen, are Miracles that Open us to Paths that Despair was unable to See, and those Paths will lead to Places Unimagined.  So we have to stay Open, and the best way to do that is to Change the Subject – occupy ourself with something entirely different.

But we’re done with Saturn Square Chiron.  Its first “Can-Opener” occurrence was New Years 2017, its Retrograde Exposition occurrence was around May 1, 2017, and its final Confidence-Builder occurrence around November 1, 2017.  The only things remaining are its Ghosts.  They aren’t Real.  We can make them seem Real by Clinging to them.  That’s the Nature of Karma – it doesn’t Cling to us, we Cling to it.  We Clear Karma by Loving it to Death.

When you Meditate, Meditate Deeply on Despair.  Walk past the Fear and Locate it in your Body, and Love it there.  If you don’t know where it is, Ask yourself, “What if I did know?”  Love is Soft and Warm; Fear is Cold and Hard.  Put your hand over your Despair and Warm it Up.  Imagine Softening the area around it.  Open Up to it as if it’s a lost Kitten crying for your help.  PIAVA, “Great Spirit, Please help me Respond to Despair Lovingly, so that I can Let It Go Gently, Rapidly, and Completely.  Thank You, Great Spirit!”

Fear and Anger III

August 26, 2018

We can consider the Full Moon we’ve just finished (5am PDT 26 August) and the Stations of Mars (7am PDT 27 August) and Sedna (7:30 am PDT 28 August) that we’re now falling into face-first, as one big event.  In fact, the Moon is often the Timing Trigger for Larger or more Subtle events, so there’s a chance that the Relief we felt after the Full Moon passed, indicated the Emotional Peak of the Mars-Sedna event.

They’re in different Degree Zones, the Full Moon in 4 Degrees, and the Mars-Sedna Stations at 28-29, but their Timing lumps them together.  We Expect a Mars Station to be felt most Strongly for several days before the event, and a Sedna Station to heavily Impact the week prior – depending on one’s Sensitivity of course.  So we have to consider the Moon an Anger-Fear (Mars-Sedna) Full Moon, even as on its own account we’d refer to it as a Challenge to End Karma (Square to Lachesis-Karma).

Of course we’ll translate Anger-Fear into Action-Power.

When Mars is Strong, Anger is what we Expect to Arise, and Expecting it we’ll immediately See it as an Emotion and Let Go of the Content that Triggered it.  Right?  We deal most Effectively with Emotions by Feeling them, Acknowledging them, Tapping them Out if they threaten to Overwhelm, and then Letting them Go.  What remains?  If anything, Action.  Not for Revenge, but for Improving Outcomes. 

And we know that Fear + Kegels = Power, just as Fear + Breathing = Excitement.  If your Safety is not assured, I highly recommend using Theta (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/theta/) to discriminate your Intuition about upcoming Danger from your Habitual Anxiety Patterns.  Most of your Karmic Fears will be Paper Tigers, like the wayang kulit Indonesian Shadow Puppets  – but you don’t want to miss any Real Present-Moment Dangers.

A picture of the Mars-Sedna Stations looks quite different from the Full Moon’s Almost-Grand-Unx chart…

We can consider the two Stations as one for several reasons, but the biggest one is that the Mars Station and the Sedna Station closely Trine (Complement) one another.  The chart is for the Sedna Station because it is more Momentous (Mars’s orbit spans two years, Sedna’s 11,400 years!) but especially because at Sedna’s Station the Moon, which often serves as a Timer, sits at the Near Midpoint between Mars and Sedna.

Since Ceres (Sustainability) Completes the Grand Trine, the Stations form the crossbar of a Moon Kite, and the Moon-Ceres axis is also half of a Grand Cross.  So we have both Great Grace (Grand Trine) and Serious Motivation (Grand Cross) baked into these Stations, with the Moon leading the way.  The Moon is a complex symbol.  We can probably most productively interpret it as Authenticity – which certainly reinforces the trend toward Descent of Soul and Self-Sovereignty.

But a more well-known interpretation for the Moon is Variability, and it’s in a Mutable (as in Mutation or Change) Sign, Pisces.  So the Grand Cross sets up an apparent Duality between Sustainability and Variability.  We know, however, that Duality is one of those Truths that aren’t Truths.  When we see a Duality we don’t focus on heads or tails, we look for the Coin.  While the words might appear contradictory, the Energies aren’t – certainly Sustainability requires Flexibility, a form of Variability.

So what might our Coin be?  Perhaps Situational Awareness and Response, rather than Idealistic or Programmatic – or Karmic, Inertial – Reaction.  The other axis of the Grand Cross is Intense – dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential) on one side, and on the other a full nest of Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs), Pholus (Full Conscious Response), Ixion (Forbidden Genius), and Quaoar (Survival Instincts).  We’ll dive into that tomorrow.

 

Fear and Anger I

August 26, 2018

Marilyn Raffaele’s Arcturian Channeling is the perfect introduction to the Stations of Mars (Anger and Action) and Sedna (Fear and Power) that follow (and underscore) the Full Moon…

Note: if you don’t link to this page before Marilyn’s next “newest” post, you can find it at…

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

“It has become a new time, a time during which high frequencies of Light energy are making available a higher state of consciousness for all receptive.  In spite of appearances, everything is proceeding according to plan– ‘the train has left the station’.  Allow the process dear ones, for all is as it should be as frequencies of Light flow to the world in increasingly intense waves of higher consciousness.

“Those still asleep in the illusions of sense are unaware of exactly what is taking place but experience these intense energies as well.  This often brings about a sense of empowerment in them that they are only able process through their limited spiritual awareness, resulting in actions of anger, fear, and aggression.

“You who are awake, know what is energetically taking place at this time, but it can be very easy to slip back into old habits previously called upon for survival like fear, doubt, and anger.  Simply allow the process dear ones, allow the process.

“Trust that your Higher Self knows exactly what you are ready for, when you are ready, and how to bring it to you.  You have reached that point of spiritual readiness where you must begin to let go of and move beyond doubt, for doubt is nothing more than a facet of separation belief.  Continuing to trust your doubts rather than the truth will only serve to anchor you in the past.

“Separation beliefs keep you isolated from God, other people, nature, and most importantly your own Divine Self.  Your spiritual journeying over lifetimes has brought you to a place of knowing that you are not and never could possibly be separate from ONE.

However, some continue to understand ONEness as a mental concept or intellectual information, never allowing it to become their attained state of consciousness.  Honor yourselves through acknowledging that in spite of any appearances, you are and could only ever be expressions of the ONE Source because nothing else exists.  If for any reason you are excluding yourself from ONEness, you are in separation.

“Guilt creates a sense of separation even for the very awake when actions of the past are recalled and examined with new and higher awareness.  Allow, love, and accept, everything from your past dear ones, the good as well as the bad, for in doing this will enable you to leave the past behind and relegate the painful parts to the nothingness that they really are.

“Guilt is simply another facet of the belief in separation–separation from your true self and from others involved.  Realize that actions taken in the past represented your attained state of consciousness at that time.  Every individual is required only to live out from their highest attained state of consciousness which is what you were doing.

“You are no longer in and of this former state of consciousness, but have evolved to become a new and awake individual (the real meaning of being ‘born again’), one who understand the world differently than in the past through a consciousness that recognizes the Divine nature of self and others.  Know that many past experiences were chosen for spiritual growth.

“If you are guided to make amends to someone within the framework of what is appropriate, do so, but do not let the past linger or weigh you down.  Your highest service to anyone who has offended you or whom you have offended, is to send light and forgiveness from a consciousness of ONEness to all involved including your self.

“The time is here and now to acknowledge, accept, and begin living as a Divine Being.  High frequencies of ascension energy are forcing all who have been preparing through lifetimes, to make this choice.  The time for procrastination is over.  Telling yourself you are not ready or spiritual enough is nonsense based in beliefs of separation.  The time is now for all who are serious about their spiritual evolution.

“Are you choosing to continue living, moving, and having your being in concepts of duality and separation, taking classes, reading books, lighting candles etc. because it is familiar, continuing to seek and search for what you already know, or are you brave enough to leave that all behind and step into your own Light?

“All have free will and can live in illusion forever if they choose but now is a perfect and powerful time for the awakened to move into new realms of consciousness and leave behind everything that no longer serves their soul but instead continues to feed the illusions of material sense.

“I Am that I Am.  What does this sacred phrase really mean?  It means exactly what it says, dear ones.  I – the only Consciousness, Energy, Substance, and Reality – is what I am.  Do you believe this or have you simply and without thought relegated it to only ‘saints’ and ascended masters?

“Many of you are saying, ‘Yes, but…’  No more ‘buts’ dear ones, the time for buts… has run out and can no longer exist for anyone who is serious about their spiritual evolution.  Either you accept that you are a Divine Being embodying all the qualities of Source, or you do not.  You have prepared for this through lifetimes and are ready to come into your own.  NOW.

“You are qualified to be finished with seeking and searching through classes, books, groups, spiritual tools, etc. but the habit of seeking has become so ingrained that even the very evolved hesitate to give it up not realizing that they will still receive information and be taught, but the higher learning will come from within rather than from without.

“We are not saying there is no longer any place for classes, books, readings, crystals, beads, ceremony, etc. etc. because for many, especially beginners, these tools are the bridge that will lead them into higher truths.  Nor do we say that you cannot enjoy your favorite crystal, go to church, or take some class you may be guided to but these things must now become a choice, rather than a need.

“You are no longer beginners and any continued dependence on outer persons, places, or things in the belief that they are necessary to your spirituality can only serve to keep you in bondage to what is old and false–everything based in duality and separation.

“Metaphysics is action taken to heal, correct, or change something.  Mysticism is the realization that there is nothing to heal, correct or change.  You are ready to become modern day mystics.  Those who live in the world but are not of it.

“This can be difficult for those who make their living through the practice and teaching of metaphysics.  It is the sacred obligation of those who teach and work in the metaphysical fields to allow their students to grow beyond needing them or any particular practice.

“An evolved teacher will make it clear to his students that spiritual tools only serve to activate that which is already fully present within them rather than being the source of power.  The ultimate goal of any spiritual path is to grow the student beyond needing it and into the realization of…

” ‘That which I have been seeking, I AM.’

“Intense energies of Light are forcing dense energies still held in cellular memory to surface physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.  Allow these experiences which at times can be unpleasant, to move through and out which can take several days, aware that any pain or inconvenience is temporary.

“Old energies stored from other lifetimes are simply impersonal beliefs accepted and claimed as reality which is important to remember if a clearing becomes uncomfortable.  If you declare to yourself and believe I am this or I am that, (sick, depressed, fearful etc.) you draw these concepts back into your energy field and endow them with a reality and power they do not have and where they can once again become personally yours.

“This does not mean you stick your head in the sand while shouting, ‘God is all,’ for to pretend a state of consciousness not yet attained is very human.  It means that in spite of appearances or while taking human footsteps that may be necessary for a situation, you know and hold the truth.

“If some painful clearing experience arises for you, remember that these things are not some sort of karmic punishment, but rather represent a graduation indicating your readiness to clear them and move beyond the past and into higher awareness.  Learn to handle uncomfortable clearing experiences from a centered and neutral state of awareness able to say: ‘Oh you again’, simply letting whatever is surfacing move out while giving it no power.

“A consensus consciousness based in duality and separation is what holds together the third dimensional world of good and evil.  You are witnessing the chaos of today because consciousness which is the substance of all form, is rapidly changing as more souls awaken and add their Light to the mix.

“Because you are God Beings YOU ARE CREATORS and must never forget or ignore this.  Be alert to what you are creating through your thoughts, words, beliefs etc. (your state of consciousness).  Allow mis-creations to become your teachers.  Rather than blaming some outside source when you find yourself in a problematic situation, honestly examine your belief system.

“Learn to live in the now moment as an observer, not ignoring what you observe, but rather seeing the world through eyes of spiritual awareness.  Be like an adult who is watching children play in a sand box.  The observer notices that one is a bully, some surrender and do what the bully wants, and others play quietly by themselves giving no regard or surrender to the bully.

“The observer does not have to get into the sand box with the children but may guide the direction of play through some firm but loving interaction.  Then again, he may do nothing at all, simply allowing the energy to play out, wisely aware that with time each will experience the lessons they have created and set in motion from their attained state of consciousness with or without his help.

“Whatever a spiritually aware observer does, he always does it from Center, following the guidance that flows freely from spiritual awareness and trust.

“The time has arrived for all awake to live what they know by bringing unconditional love into every situation and circumstance no matter how seemingly ‘human’ it may appear.  This never means being another’s doormat, or staying in some toxic situation in the false belief that they are being spiritual and loving.  Bringing unconditional love into some toxic situation may mean powerfully stating to self and others, ‘Enough is enough’.  Always honor your own Divine Self.

“It means fully accepting yourself as a Divine Being here on earth to awaken, learn, evolve, and then assist others ready to understand and ascend to higher dimensional realities.  You are the way showers and the teachers–midwives assisting the birth of a higher state of universal consciousness.

“Everything you have been preparing for for lifetimes has arrived.  Will you get on the bus, or wait another few lifetimes?”

Active Self-Sovereignty II

August 19, 2018

We’ve updated August II (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/08/13/august-ii/), adding accuracy and the Moons.

If we turn our Attention to the Almost-Grand-Unx in the Lilith-Mars Initiation chart that governs the next two-and-a-half years, the first thing we’d want to know is What’s The Vacancy?  The Vacancy represents the Energy We need to supply Consciously in order to make the puzzle fit together and unload all of it’s Grace. 

It’s 2 Scorpio, “A delicate bottle of perfume lies broken, releasing its fragrance.”  The implication might be that our Self-Sovereignty is a delicate thing, easily squandered, and that it would profit us if we guarded it more carefully.

Dan’s Arcturian team has a comment for us on this, and on the recent Eclipse’s focus on Respect for All Things and Growth of Consciousness (Hopi-Juno)…

https://danielscranton.com/our-perspective-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We have a perspective on humanity that allows us to see who you really are, even when you are acting from your ego, even when you are living your lives from a place of fear.  We still are able to see who you really are.  We never lose sight of that truth that you are Source Energy Beings, comprised wholly of unconditional love.

“So when you are acting out in some way, and you judge yourself, or others place judgment upon you, just know that there is another perspective.  There are beings holding that space for you, that space that allows us to see you as you truly are.”

“We also encourage you to take our perspective when it comes to your fellow humans.  If you can take that perspective that everyone is doing the best they can to be the embodiment of Source Energy in a physical body, then you can let go of some of your own judgment of other people…” 

And if you can take that perspective that you are doing the best you can to be the embodiment of Source Energy in a physical body, then you can let go of your judgment of yourself.  Dan continues…

“And that will free you.  That will liberate you to hold a higher frequency, as we do.  We don’t have any of those judgments or any of that guilt weighing us down.

“It is easy to shift your perspective.  It just takes a willingness to make that your intention, and then you can vibrate in harmony with us, with our perspective, and in the process you can become more of who you are.  You are going to know yourselves as Source Energy Beings at some point, and you don’t have to earn that knowing.  You just have to accept it.  So why not start now, while you still have physical bodies to enjoy?”

The Glory of a Grand Unx, or even an Almost-Grand-Unx, is that you can make almost any other Configuration from it.  For instance (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/08/12/active-self-sovereignty/), can you pick out the Yin Gate between Mars-Lilith and Varuna, signifying that we should keep an eye out for Physical Symptoms which don’t Make Sense relative to what we know about our Bodies? 

There’s a second Yin Gate between Saturn-Pholus-Quaoar and Moira, suggesting that The Most Important Thing is for us to Consciously Choose to Support our Survival Instincts, no matter how Paradoxical they seem.  Our Instincts often run Contrary to our Habitual Patterns, and they’re often very Subtle and easy to Ignore.  If they seem like a Wild Hare, Pay Attention!

The third Yin Gate spans OR10 and Aletheia.  The bottom line here is that while those Intrusive Memories seem very Dramatic and highly Fictional, many of them are literally True in their context.  The more we have a hard time Imagining the context, the more likely they are to be Literal.  What would that mean?

Then there are the Fire, Earth, and Air Grand Trines.  While they suggest that we may have some Emotional Work to do, the Karma-Chiron-Varuna Fire Grand Trine promises Healing of long-standing Physical issues, as long as you Persevere in stepping out of the Victim box.  That means you’ll need to deal with that Emotional issue as Emotion, rather than dwelling on your thoughts and Stories about it. 

A useful strategy is to Ask your Affliction – Physical or Emotional – what it has to Teach you.  Focusing your Attention right into the Center of your Discomfort, and keeping it there as long as you can will also help.  For Emotional Discomfort, Locate it in your Body and focus there.  If that’s Difficult, just Trust your first Guess.

But of course the most interesting thing about a Grand Unx will always be the Unxes.  An Unx is the Angle between two planets that are one Sign apart – Unx means one twelfth.  The Twelfth Harmonic is about Pattern-Breaking.  A Waning Unx will help us Break Old Patterns that Commit us to Obsolete Energies.  A Waxing Unx will help us Break our Resistance to New Energies.  For instance…

  • Active Self-Sovereignty (Mars-Lilith) makes a Waxing Unx to our Survival (Saturn-Pholus-Quaoar-Galactic Center), telling us that Business As Usual (such as continuing to kiss the Power-Brokers’ smelly Behinds) won’t work much longer.
  • Active Self-Sovereignty makes a Waning Unx to those Intrusive Memories (OR10) – we’re used to discounting weird Memories that seem out of context.  In this case we want to examine them for potential Truth, then Let them Go.
  • We can go on around the Loop…
  • Chiron (Pain and Miracles) makes a Waxing Unx to OR10 and a Waning Unx to Uranus (Soul) – The more you can Remember your Lifetimes as a Healer, the better.
  • Lachesis (Choosing the Length of Timelines) makes a Waxing Unx to Uranus; our Experience of Life will be Different now that the Soul’s in charge.
  • Moira (Choice) makes a Waxing Unx to Lachesis and a Waning Unx to Varuna.  A Choice or Vow we made in the Distant Past is the root of one of our chronic Physical Discomforts.  We can Change that, without even Knowing what the original Choice was about – just PIAVA that the Original Source of your Discomfort be Lovingly and Gently Transformed.
  • Truth (Aletheia) makes a Waxing Unx to Varuna and a Waning Unx to Venus-Makemake.  You’ll be Letting Go of Old Patterns that Inhibit your Manifesting What You Want.  For every excuse you make for not having What You Want, Know that it’s Bullshit.

Active Self-Sovereignty

August 12, 2018

Today Daniel Scranton Channels…

https://danielscranton.com/the-power-of-non-action-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We are beginning to understand humanity’s motivations for doing things.  We have noticed that you believe very strongly in taking action, and that many of the actions that you take are done in an almost zombie-like state.  We see you going through the motions most of the time, but not really engaging with the actions that you take.

“So most actions that we see you taking are meant to make you feel better about something or to just feel better, period.  You take action not because you absolutely feel that you must, not because you are inspired and you cannot hold yourselves back, but rather you take actions because you feel they are necessary.

“We want you to start acting less.  We encourage you instead to see how long you can do nothing, because in doing nothing, you are more likely to become aware of what you are feeling.  Now, when you become aware of what you are feeling, you can do something about it.  You can raise your vibration.

“There is a chance, of course, that for some of you doing nothing will lead to an inspired action.  You will find yourself moving in a particular direction without even thinking about it.  You will spring into action because something inside of you will be guiding you towards that particular action.  We want you to realize that this is what you intended to do with the actions that you would take at this point in your journey.

“You intended to act from a place of joy or enthusiasm, a place of excitement.  You don’t need to prove yourselves through your actions.  No one is keeping track of how much you got done, unless you are talking about someone that you work for, or perhaps someone in your life that you are trying to impress.  But is that really where you want your actions to come from?

“Or can you imagine a life where every action that you take is taken because you feel inspired to move in a certain direction?  Take as much time as you need to receive that inspiration, and for as long as you can, sit and do nothing, and just see what happens.”

Actually, I do that a lot, just this morning for instance, and I usually Judge myself for it.

We usually find a high correlation between Daniel’s Arcturian Channelings and the current astrology, and for the last several days he’s been talking about a Big Download or Portal, consistent with the Uranus Station or Descent of the Soul.  So I Wonder if this Non-Action reflects something in the Eclipse chart that I haven’t noticed? 

Non-Action is of course an important part of Taoism and Buddhism…

http://www.abuddhistlibrary.com/Buddhism/H%20-%20World%20Religions%20and%20Poetry/World%20Religions/Taoism/Articles%20and%20Texts/Taoism%20-%20we-wei/Taoism%20–%20wu-wei,%20inaction,%20actionless%20action.htm

Inaction or wu-wei does not mean that one literally does nothing (although more often than we think actually doing nothing is the best policy).  Rather, it means that one avoids unnatural action.  This is most often forced or aggressive or obsessively fussy action.  It also means, that one performs all one’s actions with a natural, unforced attitude.  The Taoist remembers that sand will settle out of water in time if the water is left undisturbed, and that no one person can do everything. 

“Above all the Taoist avoids fussing.  Excessive excitement over trivial matters is an annoyance to both self and others.  The Czech philosopher Comenius expressed the idea in his motto: ‘Omnia sponte fluant; absit violentiarebus‘ – ‘Let all things spontaneously flow; let there be no violence to things’.  Wu-wei is also related to tolerance: one does not insistently interfere in the lives of others unless they themselves are interfering with someone.  This letting alone of others is a form of respect and non-violence, and is akin to the modern notion of human rights.”

This extension to Tolerance makes astrological sense, as the Eclipse was about Boundaries (Conjunct Pallas) and Illuminated (T-Square) Contrast (Opposition) between Respect for All Things (Hopi) and Growth in Consciousness (Juno).  But any mention of Action, or Non-, steers us toward Mars.  Other than being Retrograde, what was Mars up to?

Mars was Conjunct Lilith, or Self-Sovereignty.  We associate Self-Sovereignty with Lilith because, once we eliminate Her Condemnation by the Patriarchy, Her most immediate and prominent Action was to decisively Reject Adam when he attempted to demand her Obeisance.  That explains the Arcturian message quite well. 

Lilith Initiated Mars less than a day before the Eclipse (8am PDT 10 August), and the Initiation was a doozy…

That’s all but one corner of a “Grand Unx,” where twelve planets are more or less equally spaced around the Zodiac.  The Twelfth Harmonic is about Pattern-Breaking, which is probably going to be pretty useful as we begin sourcing our Sovereignty from Soul rather than Ego.  In the heavy lines we’ve drawn just the Angles that directly involve Mars-Lilith – yet another one of those usually-rare Self-Resolving Diamond Stars that are all over the Sky this month. 

Mars-Lilith is Contrasted to (Opposes) the Life Force (Varuna) and Challenged (T-Square) by our Soul (Uranus Stationary), implying that a Threat to our Health will be an indicator that we are continuing our Codependence rather than Surrendering to Soul’s Inspiration.  As a Diamond Star, though, the Challenge will be Self-Resolving, as Blessings flow to us from the “Basket of Grace” (blue truss) beneath the T-Square (red triangle).

The Blessings flow from Noticing our Self-Sabotaging Patterns and Responding rather than Reacting to the Triggers that Set them Off (asteroid Karma, which is Unx to Saturn-Pholus-Quaoar).  And from Manifesting What We Really Want rather than what we’ve been Programmed to Manifest (Venus-Makemake).

The Challenge between (Square) Self-Sovereign Action (Mars-Lilith) and Soul (the Uranus Station) is also Resolved by (the orange lines or Mjölnir) Epiphanies about the Truth of what’s Sustainable (Ceres-Veritas).

The Lilith-Mars Initiation occurred at 1 Aquarius, “an old adobe mission in California.”  That’s pretty much a poster child for “insistently interfering in the lives of Others who are not themselves interfering with Others” – Western Colonialism.  Who continues to Colonize us, to use us and our Resources for their own Gain without compensating us fully?  Full compensation would mean that every transaction leaves both parties equally better off.  Does that characterize most of the transactions in your Life, as Venus-Makemake suggests it should?

Anger is the Energy that Sustains Resistance to Colonialism, but Acting in Anger leaves us worse off as a Community, and unfortunately leaves echos for Centuries.  For instance, today’s “Celebration” of the Anniversary of the Debacle in Charlottesville Virginia, and everything it entails, is a direct continuation of the US Civil War, which has on paper been over for 153 years.

Dwarf planet Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) is noticeably absent from the Lilith-Mars Initiation chart, leaving the echos of Colonialism itself for another day.  But the principle of Non-Action implies that we deal with our Anger through means other than Action.  We Fear that if we Abandon our Anger we also Abandon What We Deserve, but it’s an unfounded Fear – we are much more Effective at Defending our Rightful Space when we do so from Worthiness rather than Anger.
