Expanding into Fear II

August 29, 2021

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Boundaries and Confusion 1

March 21, 2021

As regular readers know, we focus mostly on planetary Stations – when planets Stand Still in the Sky as they’re about to go Retrograde or back into Direct travel again. We do this because we’ve observed over many decades that this is when planets have their strongest influence on our Lives. Consequently, it’s a relatively straightforward way of cutting through the immense Complexity of planetary interactions and their impact. And because of this, it’s an excellent way to Learn what each planet is about.

But Stations are by no means the only way that the planets impact us, so sometimes we need to branch out. Like this week, for instance. Our Station calendar is blank. Yet we’ve been hearing from a number of people about bigtime Boundary problems, and encountering same ourself. So we scanned the Ephemerides for wayward Mergers (Conjunctions) and Challenges (T-Squares), and checked last weekend’s New Moon chart, which we hadn’t till now examined.

Since New and Full Moon charts impact the following several weeks, the 13 March 2021 New Moon was a prime suspect. What did we find there? The New Moon itself was Merged with The Truth of the Heart (asteroid Aletheia), and Challenged by a Debate (Opposition) between Our Intuitive Knowledge of Our Limitless Potential, and our Resistance to It (dwarf planets Asbolus and Chaos Dancing together) and Growth in Consciousness, or our Resistance to It (asteroid Juno). Well yes, that could stir up all manner of Discomfort for the Ego’s primary task of Supporting the Status Quo, and loads of Confusion as well.

An Aletheia New Moon would give us a Compulsion to Let Our True Feelings Out, but how that looks depends on our Relationship to our True Feelings – are they Deeply Repressed? Difficult for us to Access? Available but only in Private? Available only to a few Close Friends? Known but Regarded as Shameful or Dangerous or Frightening? Openly Accepted? Obvious from the Anthem on our hat? If our True Feelings have never been Accepted, it’ll certainly Trigger our Abandonment. That’s never Fun.

Whatever Adventures are upon us this fortnight, they’re certainly going to be Teaching us a great deal about our True Feelings and Deep Values. If there are actual or imagined gaps between our current or historical Behaviors and our Deep Values, that’s likely to Manifest as Self-Judgment (which is Valid only as a “Fourth Step”) or as Self-Hate (which is never Constructive). If our True Feelings are Hidden from ourself, this is likely to result in Confusion and possibly Despair, as our Life would Feel Out of Control.

The T-Square would seem to have a Clear Spiritual Purpose, to increase our familiarity with our Heart’s Truth and Values (those which are not up for Debate), Open our Intuition (specifically, not our Intellect) to our Unlimited Potential, and accordingly provide a map for the Growth in Consciousness that we need in order to Support an Expanded and Integrated Future for ourself in 5D. If either our Heart’s Truth or our Unlimited Potential frightens us, then we could easily Feel this as a bigger Leap than we’re prepared to take.

Boundary issues could easily arise as we Project onto others whatever parts of this we aren’t prepared to Accept in ourself, and as Others Project onto us what they don’t Accept in themselves.

If we look to see what might fill that yawning Vacancy opposite the New Moon, we find asteroids Pandora (Hope) and Sphinx (Inscrutability). I think that means that there isn’t much we can Do about this, it’s about Being, or PIAVAing.

The Waning Square from Pluto to dwarf planet Eris also indicates that Profound New Self-Knowledge is Forcing it’s way into our Consciousness, and plotting for us as Individuals and Species a potential path through the Decline of the Pluto-Eris Cycle that began in December 1756 and 19 Sagittarius, “Pelicans menaced by the behavior and refuse of men seek safer areas for bringing up their young: The need for people concerned with the future to discover a new way of living and more wholesome surroundings.”

1756. The Declaration of Independence, in what would become the US, was still twenty years in the future. Apparently not taking their experience in the US to heart, it took the British another 62 years to defeat the Maratha Empire and Colonize India. Like the US, they Believed that they were “endowed by their Creator with unalienable Rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of” Profit at the expense of Others.

Captain Cook’s sail-by “Conquest” of Australia was still 14 years hence, and it was 32 years before Sydney became a Penal Colony. European nationalities (most weren’t nations yet) were squabbling as usual, this time in the “Seven Years War” (beats the “Hundred Years War”!), among themselves and with the Russian and the declining but by no means disarmed Ottoman Empire. There was still a remnant “Holy Roman Empire” – in Austria.

The Pluto-Eris Cycle is about how a Culture Suppresses inconvenient Truths, which always return to bite them in the butt, and how it eventually Resurrects these Truths. What is Suppressed, Lives in the Unconscious, and controls our Life from there, just outside of our Awareness, until it is Promoted or Restored into Consciousness. At least one signer of the US Declaration of Independence freed his slave first so he could sign in good faith.

This is the Waning Square, meaning that it’s time for us to Let Go of however we’ve been interpreting the Cycle. Even if we aren’t campaigning to Make America Grovel Again, most of us are still Celebrating our Entitlement. But this has been a long Cycle, begun in the Era of Ben Franklin and Frederick the Great. Can we possibly erase from our Mental and Emotional and Physical Bodies eight generations of Cultural Programming? If you’re feeling like you have no idea who you are or what you’re doing, welcome to the club!

Quantum Jump 19: Vesta III

July 30, 2018

Here’s the Vesta Station chart…

The Square Fez, Golden Rectangle, and double T-Squares (or, together, Square Fez with double chinstrap) are drawn in heavy lines, and the Grand Trine in lighter lines.  To Identify each…

  • The Square Fez is Pluto-Venus-Chaos-Eris
  • The Golden Rectangle is Chaos-Eris-Vesta-Haumea
  • The T-Squares are the red triangles
  • The Grand Trine is Eris-Vesta-Mercury

Since we’re dealing with a Reorg of our Unconscious Beliefs (Vesta Station), it shouldn’t be too surprising that we may be Compelled (Pluto T-Square) to Violate or Reform our previous Values (Venus T-Square). 

Two questions are prominent – see if you can Hold them as Questions rather than trying to Answer them; our Answers always spring from what we already know, so it we use them to Close the Questions, we never Grow…

  • “I Wonder what previous Limits I’ll be Compelled to Exceed” (Pluto Quincunx Chaos-Asbolus)
  • “I Wonder what I may now be ready to See, that I’ve been Denying” (Venus Quincunx Eris)
  • These are the Diagonals of the Square Fez; any Fez is most easily approached through its Diagonal Quincunxes

And there are two Dualities that are important for us to Transcend or Unify.  Answers are more appropriate here, as long as we remain Open to Better (New or more Comprehensive or just plain outrageous) Answers…

  • My Hidden Genius and its Suppression (Vesta-Ixion Opposite Chaos-Asbolus)
  • Denial and Rebirth (Eris Opposite Haumea-Atropos)
  • The Grace in the Golden Rectangle (it’s blue in the chart; it’s Golden because the ratio of its ends to its sides is Sacred Geometry’s Golden Angle) is Liberated by Resolving its Diagonal Oppositions

A New Atropos-Haumea Cycle Begins 10 August at 24 Libra, “A butterfly with an extra wing on its left side.”  In general, the Left Side implies the Receptive or Yin side of things, so we could interpret the Symbol as an emphasis on the Feminine.  While the Cycle itself can be seen as enigmatic – Beginnings (Haumea) Initiating Endings (Atropos) – we can also read it as Quenching Hindrances to Rebirth.  Hence, Quenching Hindrances to the Rebirth of the Feminine.

Which puts us right into the Heart of the Eris Myths – Eris Challenged the Vanity of the Primary Greek Goddesses, as well as the Hubris of the Greek Gods who both Manipulated and were Enthralled by their Vanity.  That’s kind of a Metaphor for an Archetype in general – we are loathe to Surrender the Archetype because we Manipulate it to our Advantage, even while the Archetype Manipulates us to its Advantage.  Think manchild ‘Rump and daddyproxy Pootin’.

One of the easiest way to Resolve any Disharmony is to Reframe it as a Virtue, though it’s not about “Spinning” it, it’s literally about viewing it through a new legitimate Perspective.  For instance, Denial, while we use it as an insult to Manipulate Guilt in others, is actually a Powerful Psychological Tool that we use, mostly Unconsciously, to postpone what we’re not ready to deal with.

So the Eris-Haumea/Atropos Opposition becomes an Invocation to Accept greater Authority and Autonomy for the Feminine in our Personal and Cultural Beliefs and Actions.

The New Vesta-Ixion Cycle began 23 March at 28 Sagittarius – on the Galactic Center – “An ancient bridge over a beautiful stream is still in constant use.”  Our Hidden and Forbidden Genius Ixion is almost certainly a long- and well-honed Skill developed in many Past and Parallel Lives.  That could be our Ancient Bridge.  The Beautiful Stream could be the Unconscious Beliefs that have brought us to Where We Are.  In the spirit of Denial as a Powerful Focusing Tool, our Limiting Beliefs have served to bring us to the Cusp of Ascension.

A bit more subtle but Powerful is the “Still in Constant Use” part of the Symbol.  Even though our Hidden Genius has been Forbidden, the Limitation is more about Recognition than Use.  So while we won’t Talk about it, or use it in situations where it would be Seen, we actually use it all of the time when no one is Watching.  So there is Hidden Power in your Fantasies about Manifesting your Greatest Desires.

Fantasies are usually scenarios we don’t actually Want to happen, because they would overly Complicate our Life, disrupting too many of the Masks we use to Protect our True Self.  It may be reasonable to suggest that Enlightenment occurs when we no longer need to Protect our True Self, when we Realize that our True Self is actually Source and as such is not Vulnerable to Harm.

While Chaos doesn’t Initiate Asbolus until 2024, it’s a 96-year Cycle, so we can reasonably consider the five-degree gap between them to be at least Hinting about the New Cycle now.  The New Cycle begins at 4 Cancer, “A cat arguing with a mouse.”  The Cat here would be our Unlimited Potential, while the Mouse would be our Resistance to our Intuitions about Reaching into it to pluck its Fruit.

So how can we Honor our Fantasies more as Practice for Plucking the Fruits of our Unlimited Potential?  We could Fantasize that our Fantasies themselves Manifest in such a manner that our Resistance to them is undisturbed, that Miracles Allow our Deepest Desires to Manifest without Resistance from ourself or Others.  But that would be a Fantasy, which by definition we tend not to Want to actually happen.

What to do then?  We could PIAVA Both/And.  To do that we have to recast our Resistance to our Hidden Genius as our Friend.  Rather than the Side Effects we Don’t Want to happen as a result of Living our Genius Out Loud, list the Effects we Do Want to happen.  For instance, that might be Confidence and Celebration rather than Shame and Banishment.

Such a PIAVA is likely to be so Powerful as to Explode our Lifestyle, so we want to approach it carefully.  We can easily Entrench our Current Ego rather than Expand it, by asking it to Grow too much at once.  A Powerful approach to Powerful Shifts is to alternate Theta and Tapping and Resting.

Suppose we’ve been a Skinny Kid all our Lives in spite of our Best Efforts to the contrary, and we Want to stop Others from kicking sand in our face at the Beach.  We could start by Thetaing what the Italians call Bella Figura (https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/jul/27/10-of-the-best-words-in-the-world-that-dont-translate-into-english).  Then when we get to the Show Me part, we just look to see what Resistance arises in ourself.

Then we Tap on that Resistance, and run the Theta again, allowing the Command phrase to Change as our Perspective on it Changes.  When we find more Resistance, we Tap it Out too.  After a couple of Iterations, or even just one, we Rest for several hours or a day or two, to let what we’ve Changed so far Integrate.  Then we run another Theta-Tap-Theta-Tap Sequence, and Rest again. 

Try this, and let me know how it works.  If you don’t already have the Theta and Tapping techniques down, the details are at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/theta/ and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4.
