Endings III

February 12, 2018

Now the End of the Patriarchy is a pretty Big Ending.  See if you can figure out who said this…

“The top seven stories today are all guys getting blown up, and these are not small guys.  I think it’s going to unfold like the Tea Party, only bigger.  It’s not Me Too.  It’s not just sexual harassment.  It’s an anti-patriarchy movement.  Time’s up on 10,000 years of recorded history.  This is coming.  This is real.”

We’ll give you some time to think about it, and then later we’ll give you the answer. 

Here’s a story about Ending a Pattern and Choosing to Embrace an alternative…

With thanks to https://taniamarieartist.wordpress.com/2018/02/12/celebrate-whats-right-with-the-world/ for the suggestion.

The Arcturian Perspective on Choice, via Daniel Scranton…

http://danielscranton.com/how-powerful-you-are-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council-2/

“By the power that you access within yourselves, you are able to produce new timelines, new probabilities, and therefore, new experiences.  We are always going to encourage you to go within yourselves to discover the power that you possess.  Your power is in your ability to focus.  You are focusers of energy, and you are accessing vibrations all the time.

“When you realize how powerful you are, and when you recognize that your power lies within you and in the present moment, that is when you will truly begin to create your reality consciously.  By demonstrating to yourselves how powerful you are, and that you can be trusted with that power, you enable yourselves to experience the new timelines that you create.

“When you are focusing on the past, or projecting out into the future similar results that you’ve achieved previously, you disempower yourselves.  You become more reactionary than creation-oriented.  Creation is the name of the game.  It’s what you came here to do.  You create, and you experience.  You experience, get information, and make choices about what you want to create next.

“Now, there are ways in which you can access your power that you have not yet discovered.  These will be coming to you as downloads that you will unlock, but the power is there.  The power is already within you.  Accessing your power is as easy as acknowledging that you have it, focusing within yourself, and activating a vibration.

“If you begin by accessing vibrations for the sheer enjoyment of it, you will recognize that you create your experience in the now moment.  You create an experience of the now moment, and that now moment expands out.  It becomes what you call the future.  And when you walk in your power, you can access any future experience you desire.  And you are ready.  You are ready to experience just how powerful you are.”

Now, as for Ending the Patriarchy…

“The top seven stories today are all guys getting blown up, and these are not small guys.  I think it’s going to unfold like the Tea Party, only bigger.  It’s not Me Too.  It’s not just sexual harassment.  It’s an anti-patriarchy movement.  Time’s up on 10,000 years of recorded history.  This is coming.  This is real.”

Steven Bannon said that!  https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2018-02-09/has-anyone-seen-the-president.

Endings II

February 11, 2018

Another place where we get very Confused about Boundaries, is the Edge between Ego and Soul.  Most people I meet have a very hard time imagining anything except a solid, opaque wall between themselves and their Soul, and they don’t even expect Mexico to pay for it.  Daniel Scranton Channels some Pleiadian Wisdom about this…

http://danielscranton.com/mission-earth-%e2%88%9ethe-pleiadian-high-council-of-seven-3/

“Before you ever set foot on planet Earth for the very first time, you understood that this was a mission.  You understood that Earth had a very special place in the galaxy and that you were embarking upon a very specific mission for all of consciousness.

“You all saw this experience as the greatest possible challenge that you could embark upon.  And while you knew that there would be some very dark times, quite a bit of pain, and a little too much suffering, you stepped right up to it and decided that this was the only place for you to be.

“Now as you began your cycle of lifetimes on planet Earth, you also understood how far you would be able to expand.  You understood that the reward for being on planet Earth was like none other in the galaxy.  And so you feel that the pain and suffering was worth it.  You may not feel it now, from where you stand, but we guarantee you that you feel it on the level of your higher self and your oversoul.

“Your next mission on this journey will be to create a brand new Earthly experience for yourselves and for all future generations, and those experiences will not be about challenges.  The next mission is about experiencing joy and unbridled, unconditional love.  You have come this far in order to feel what it is like to move from the depths of darkness to the heights of ecstasy.

“Now when you decide to embark upon the new mission is up to you.  It is up to you how much longer you play with the third-dimensional rules and when you fully embrace the fifth-dimensional perspective, the fifth-dimensional frequency, the fifth-dimensional experience of reality.  We know that many of you feel ready, and we say to you that you are.  It is all just a matter of opening your heart, letting that be your guide, and forgetting everything that you think you have learned up until this point.”

The chart of the Atropos Station is relatively simple.  Atropos Conjoins – meaning that it’s Merged With (speaking of Boundaries) Eurydike, or Trust – still barely moving after it’s 4 February Station, and precisely Conjunct Atropos when the latter Stands Still.  Are we Scared to Let Go of What We Know So Well, this Karma, and Accept what lies beyond Endings, the Unknown?  That would be natural.  If you considered it carefully, you might well find you’d much rather Step Out of your Karmic Self-Sabotage Patterns than Stay In them.  But considering it carefully would mean you’d have to recognize that your Karma is your own Creation.  Most of the time most of us just Feel Victimized by our Archetypes, as if they were woven by Someone Else.

The ignorati refer to this as “New Age Guilt,” the idea that somehow I Chose to Manifest the Reality I Live in.  Why would I Choose Suffering?  They see it that way simply because they are unable to refer to their Soul as “I” – they see their Soul as Someone Else.  So this Adventure is about Trusting that we can End Habits that no longer serve us, and still Live Well afterwards.  If it was Someone Else who installed those Habits, do we Fear that they will Punish us if we End them?  If we still Live our Life as a Child subject to our Programmers’ rules, of course we do.  But we as a Soul Chose those Programmers, to set up situations that Mirror our Karma, so we can Recognize it and End it.  Part of our Mission.

Eurydike-Atropos Station in fact makes a Trine Bridge, defining the Easy Path, across the Nodal Axis.  The Nodal Axis is nothing if it’s not our map for getting from our Karma to our Mission.  Asteroid Sappho – Self-Love – sits on our South Node, which symbolizes the Karma that we’ve sown, the Patterns and Archetypes we took this Lifetime to Let Go of.  Do we Love Ourself in spite of our Karma?

Our Mission is not Letting Go of our Karma.  It’s just that the Hidden Skills which we need in order to Achieve our Mission, are hidden beneath our Held Emotions.  Held Emotions are the Emotions we cannot face because it would be too Scary, our cosmic PTSD.  Letting Go of our Karma, Letting Go of those Archetypes, those seemingly unshakeable Habits that Sabotage us over and over again, requires that we Feel those Forbidden Emotions, requires an Ego Death.  Yet the Ego’s job is to keep us Alive.  Which is the same error we all make – the Ego is supposed to keep us Alive, not to keep itself Alive.  How can it keep us Alive though, if it Dies?  Another Paradox.

Our Karmic Archetypes are Compulsive, or we’d be able to Let them Go easily.  In the map of the Station, Pluto, symbolizing Compulsion, makes a Quincunx Bridge to the Nodal Axis.  A Quincunx Bridge is like meeting Gollum.  But rather than Solve the constant stream of Riddles, we need to Zen them – leave them as Riddles, unanswered.  Anything that the Dualistic mind can conjure to Respond to them, will be a knife in the Heart of Mystery. 

That Fearless Child, in Awe at the marvelous things around Her, completely unprepared to try to make Sense of them, and, apart from trying to Understand the Abuse she so unfairly Received, having no need to make Sense of them.  That Child, pre-Abuse, is the one we need to Recover.  She holds the Ring.  The Abuse is the re-enactment of our Karma.  Who were we before we stumbled into these Patterns of Sabotage?  We’d need to go back to Lilith, to our Self-Sovereignty.  It’s a Mystery, but if you let “I” be your Soul for a few moments, you’ll Know Exactly what it is and Who You Are.

In the Station chart, Pluto is Conjoined by Chariklo, representing our Self-Confidence.  The two of them Square Atropos-Eurydike, symbolizing Mastery through Challenge.  Mastering the subtle Art of having Confidence that our Compulsions will lead us back to Awe, the subtle Art of Trusting that Ending our 3D Timeline will Liberate us to a Greater Mastery.  It’s the same as Sappho-South Node; Loving Ourself as our Karma.  Can you let “I” be your Karma for a few moments? 

When we drop all Self-Judgment then it doesn’t matter Who We Are, does it.  We are simply Unconditional Love, Personified.  If we are “just” Love, then what do Patterns and Habits and Archetypes matter?  They don’t even exist.  We can’t be “just” Love without being in the Present Moment, and in the Present Moment our Karma is undefined.  Habits by definition Remove us from the Present Moment.

Timelines II

January 20, 2018

Before I go on to the Saturn-Klotho Initiation and the Haumea Station charts, let me annotate the previous post a bit more; I had to hurry it out the door because of engagements otherwise…

As Dan & Friends, and others including us, have frequently pointed out that we Feel our way into New Timelines…

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/01/17/having-it-all/

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/10/09/piafa-ii/

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/01/02/world-peace-timeline-ii/

The Saturn-Klotho 4-Capricorn Initiation (“Capricorn 4 is ‘A group of people prepare a large canoe for a journey by water’ – starting another Timeline, an Emotional one,” 5pm PST 21 January), points us in that direction…

The chart isn’t as messy as it looks.  Put your thumb over OR10-Nessus-Nemesis at the upper right, and what we have left is a Diamond Star Enhanced by a Grand Trine…

That’s a pretty Exalted chart!  It’s all about Boundaries (Pallas).  The would-be Challenge (the T-Square) is about whether your Boundaries Enhance your Life Force or Drain it (Varuna-Aletheia), and whether your Values Serve your Self-Love or Diminish it (Venus-Sappho).  Which are pretty Fundamental, and Serious, Challenges. 

But it’s a Diamond Star – the “Bowl of Grace” under the T-Square includes What We’re Manifesting (Makemake), and Which Among Our Beliefs are Archaic (Vesta-Karma).  These are “free clues” that, if we’re Open to the Information they provide, will Facilitate our Letting Go of Values that Diminish our Self-Love and Boundaries that Drain our Life Force. 

By PIAVAing Clarity about the Disconnect between What We Want and What Actually Is (Makemake), we can see where we need to go next with our Tapping and Poor-Sweethearting.  And by PIAVAing Loving Awareness of our Archetypes, we can see where we need to Learn new Responses to the World (Vesta-Karma).

Then we have that fat Earth Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Grace) in the center, promising Great Blessings between our Boundaries (Pallas), our Truth (Veritas), and our New Timeline (Saturn-Klotho-Quaoar).

But where are the promised Emotions?  None of these twelve planets are in Water Signs.  They’re under your thumb – OR10-Nessus-Nemesis in Pisces.  OR10 signifies Intrusive Memories, Nessus represents Abuse, Nemesis symbolizes Ego Death, and Pisces is about Finishing Business with Emotional Baggage.  Yes, that’s all very Threatening, but it’s a zit on the side of a well-organized chart full of incredible Grace. 

So yes, by all means Feel and Embrace any Fear that the Threat of Revisiting your PTSD evokes.  That step is critical, as without it you may have to Re-Experience the Trauma rather than Revisit it.  What to do with Fear?  Certainly Tap it Out (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4), Breathe (Fear + Breathing = Excitement), and do your Kegels (which in combination with Fear cause Time to slow down so it’s more manageable). 

You may want to enlist an Ally to help keep part of you in the Present Moment.  We Heal first by first Holding our Traumatic Regression and our Present-Moment Safety in our Awareness at the same time – which is why we’ve been practicing Cognitive Dissonance (Holding Contradictory Beliefs without Competition between them) all these years.  And second, by enlisting our Present-Moment Self to Poor-Sweetheart our Regressed Self as a start toward Loving Her Unconditionally and Lovingly Reparenting Her.  Or Him.

We’re describing this as if it’s an easy mechanical process when in fact it’s an Overwhelmingly Emotional process.  But maybe not as Overwhelming as we Fear.  Karma is Dead.  We know that Karma does not Grasp us, we Grasp our Karma, only because it’s a Habit we have.  Our Present-Moment Self and/or our Ally need to Give us Permission to Let Go of the Habit.  Yes, we drop into the Void when we drop that Habit, but Emptiness is the Womb that precedes Rebirth – another important reminder for our Guides to Give us.

And the chart is full of Grace.  Healing our Emotional Baggage is only the Rider; the Enhanced Diamond Star is the Horse.  The Horse can carry you much farther, and with much greater Ease, than you can travel on your own.  And the Timing is Gloriously Right.  Grand Septiles are rare, and if we can use this one to Let Go of Emotional Baggage that stands between us and our Liberation, it’s a phenomenal Blessing.  You know from Experience how Effortless something is when the Time Is Right, and how Impossible the same task can be when the Time Isn’t Right.

One more boon.  Nessus-Nemesis (Letting Go of Trauma) is part of a second T-Square, with Vesta-Karma (Archaic Self-Sabotage) and Veritas (Present-Moment Truth).  This T-Square is Trine-Bridged by Pallas/Boundaries – the primary Benefactor of the original Enhanced Diamond Star…

So, what would happen if there was an additional planet Opposing Saturn-Klotho, at 4 Cancer?  We’d have another Diamond Star, which would greatly Ease the whole Letting-Go-of-Emotional-Baggage process.  A Vacancy in an almost-Major-Configuration becomes the Power Point of the chart, because if we can Consciously provide that Energy, we Complete the Configuration and Balance the Energy – the astrological equivalent of Tapping. 

Cancer 4 is “A cat arguing with a mouse.”  That’s our Doubt, Anxiety, and Lack of Trust.  Arguments are Either/Or contests, Energy-wasting Diversions.  So we need to be Hypervigilant for these Mental Noises, Poor-Sweetheart them, Tap Out the Anxiety, thank them for attempting to contribute, Chuckle at them Tenderly, and send them away with instructions to return when they’ve Negotiated Win-Win.  They’re likely to come back with the password to Smaug’s hoard.

Timelines

January 20, 2018

I don’t know how many folks know intuitively what a “Timeline” is.  Yes, certainly a Lifetime is a Timeline, and a multidimensional one.  Within that Lifetime there can be many Timelines.  Those of us with a Strong Pluto know what I mean when I speak of “having many Lifetimes in one” – we have many phases in our Life which are relatively separate from all the others.  You’ll meet someone you know fairly well, but you can’t remember how or when you know them from – because you knew them in a different Timeline.  It’s the same for everyone else, just not as extreme – every time we Change jobs, or cities, or Attitudes, we start a new Timeline.  Sometimes a Dream can start a new Timeline.

The Greeks wrapped this into their Mythology; the Goddess Klotho was in charge of Creating a new Lifetime/Timeline, Lachesis was in charge of  deciding how long it would last, and Atropos was in charge of Ending it.  There are asteroids named after each.  The three of them were the “Moirai” or “Fates,” and there is also an asteroid named Moira, the singular of Moirai.  One common theme is that not even the Gods can violate Fate, though in other themes some of the Gods have more Power than the Fates.

Accepting one’s Fate is a major theme in most Religions – “Thy Will Be Done,” for instance.  If we set aside the Esoteric branches, the Religions are almost all Either/Or, and we know that Either/Or notions are Political notions.  Political is the adjectival version of Power, a synonym for Ego.  Accepting one’s Fate means Accepting the Status Quo, or Surrendering one’s Power.  If you’re the Victim of Privilege, only Despair or perverted Gratitude keeps you “in your place.”

Fate is what happens to us when we Choose to remain Unconscious.  I know, it sounds weird to cast that as a Choice, since our Karmic Archetypes are so impenetrable that we seldom Notice them, though they’re glaringly obvious to our friends who are too polite to tell us.  There are Dynamic methods for Penetrating the Wall of Unconsciousness, such as Hypnosis, and they can be Chosen.  But Mastery of such Penetration belongs in the realm of the Magnetic.  We PIAVA, Change the Subject, wait a bit, and then Pay Attention.  “I Wonder if my most Self-Sabotaging Archetype will Reveal itself to me.”

On 21 January (5pm PST), Saturn (The Most Important Thing) Initiates Klotho (Starting a New Timeline) in 4 Capricorn, and on 23 January (9am PST), Haumea (Rebirth) Stands Still, which maximizes the Strength of its Impact.  Capricorn 4 is “A group of people prepare a large canoe for a journey by water” – starting another Timeline, an Emotional one.  The Ego and the Status Quo are kind of outnumbered here.

Meanwhile, our Grand Septile (The Time Is Now) Perfects itself, in purple…

On the left side of the chart, the quintessential symbol for our Karmic Archetypes (the South Node) Merges with or Conjoins the symbol for Becoming Conscious (asteroid Juno).  Dancing with this from the right side, the symbol for our Lifetime Mission (the North Node) Merges with the symbol for Sustainability (asteroid Ceres).  The red line, symbolizing Either/Or, defines their Dance together.  It’s not about making a Choice; we Transcend Duality by Choosing Both/And.

As usual, Dan’s Arcturian Advisors are right on time, moving us beyond where we Expect to be…

http://danielscranton.com/choosing-creating-timelines-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“You have an ability within you to project your consciousness to a timeline that you want to investigate before bringing your physical self to it.  You are doing this without realizing that you are doing it, but now is the time for you to begin to do it consciously.  You want to be in control of which timeline you are choosing, and you are capable of making that decision for yourselves consciously.

“Your higher selves and your oversouls know this now.  So you are going to be encouraged to project your consciousness onto several different timelines to investigate for yourselves what lies ahead on those particular timelines.  More importantly you are going to be able to tell by how they feel whether you want to align with them or not.

“Now the data that you bring back with you after each one of these projections can and will be used to create new timelines, because that is what you are here to do.  You are not here to just choose from the options available to you.  You are also here to take from your experiences that which pleases you and excites you, and then you are to create new experiences, new opportunities, and of course, new timelines.  You are doing this for everyone, as each new timeline is available to all of you.

“So how do you do it consciously, then?  How do you project your consciousness onto a timeline and explore it?  First of all, recognize that these timelines exist as probabilities all around you.  So if you begin by stretching your consciousness, as we have already discussed, then you can move to the next level of this consciousness journey, by taking your consciousness into one of those probabilities.

See them as portals that exist all around you, portals that you can travel down, get a glimpse of what they contain, and then come back from.  This is the new way that you create your reality.  Choose the timeline whose vibration you want to experience most of the time, and know that you will continue to have opportunities to choose again and again and again.”

So while the Ego still maintains some of its Power, we can do Trial Runs on several possible Timelines, to see Who We Want to Become in the New Space that we’re Birthing into.

Time’s Up I

January 13, 2018

Eris was the Lady who, failing to receive an invitation to the Big Party, tossed a Golden Apple, inscribed “To the fairest of them all,” into the Party, putting the other Big-Name Goddesses at the Party into a long-lasting tither that eventually led to the famed Trojan War.  Eris thus becomes the Goddess of “Discord and Strife,” and  Greek Mythology disses women as jealous and petty.  Once we realize that the Greek Mythos was the literary vehicle that described or proscribed the replacement of the Matriarchy by the Patriarchy, we can understand the motives behind the Myth, and reframe our interpretation of the dwarf planet that bears Eris’s name. 

We’ve Chosen to interpret Eris as the Revelation of what’s been Denied.  Recall though that, contrary to the common use of the word as a thinly veiled insult, Denial is a Healthy process that Protects the Ego from what would otherwise Overwhelm it, until the Ego is ready to deal with it, ie, until Eris comes along.  Since the Ego is in charge of insuring the Survival of it’s Vehicle (which is you or me), Denial is an important Survival Skill.  Till it’s not.

As greater Consciousness Descends onto Planet Earth, or the Earth Ascends into greater Harmony, depending on whom you ask, large portions of what’s been Denied are forcing their way into our Consciousness.  #MeToo, for instance, and now #ShitholePresident.  Imagine a future historian, needing only one source, Twitter.  The Patriarchy was not born overnight.  As Hupers gained more control over their Environment, the underlying Story shifted from Everything-We-Fear to Everything-We-Control, with a corresponding Inflation of the Ego.  Born out of Competition with the Matriarchy, Competition became the Foundation of the Patriarchy.

Which brings us to the Present Moment, where Competition is reaching the Limits of its Utility, and begs to be replaced with Cooperation.  This last week, dwarf planet Eris was at its Strongest (Stationary, Exact 10 January at 2am PST).  Eris is still Traveling with Uranus (our Soul-Self) – they’re less than two Degrees apart, so it wouldn’t hurt to review their Initiation, https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/06/03/eris-uranus-new-moon/.

It’s often said that “Timing is Everything,” and we agree.  If you’re in the Right Place at the Right Time, everything can fall into place Effortlessly – one of the reasons why we put such a heavy emphasis on PIAVAing – the Masculine Dynamic Creative Process can Manifest a lot, but unless Complemented by excellent Intuition and Flexibility, it can be consummately Destructive, as our Planet is Witnessing.  On the other hand, the Feminine Magnetic Creative Process, which we abbreviate as PIAVA, is capable of “Controlling” (actually, Coordinating) many variable far beyond the scope of the Dynamic Process.  (See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/ to review PIAVA).

For instance, many are Dynamically Manifesting Abundance, which as Catherine Ponder remind us (in The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity), means Having Enough to Share.  But can we Dynamically Manifest Abundance that Benefits All Sentient Beings?  Not so Easy to even Plan, let alone Do.  But it’s Easy to PIAVA – for example, “Ganeshi my Love, please Remove All Obstacles to Manifestation of Abundance for All Sentient Beings.”  Sure, you can scoff at that as silly, but what if everyone made that Prayer every day.  How the World would Change relative to everyone Competing to take their own Abundance away from Others.

A major Hindrance to Manifesting Magnetically is that our own Limiting Beliefs will prevent us from Noticing when key portions of our PIAVA fall into place, because our Limiting Beliefs block our Intuition.  As we’ve explained many times, we circumvent that using the Change-the-Subject and Pay-Attention elements of PIAVA, Poor-Sweethearting, and Tapping, in order to Let Go of our Limiting Beliefs and Karmic Archetypes.  A huge part of our Intuition and our Manifestation is Timing.  Being in the wrong place at the Right Time, or the Right Place at the wrong time to Notice and Receive our Blessing, does us no good.

In astrology, Timing is governed by the Seventh Harmonic.  It represents what Don Juan meant when he was always telling Grasshopper Castaneda to “Save his Energy.”  The Tarot equivalent is The Chariot – Stillness and Motion.  The Essence is that Movement is necessary, but it’s wasted if it’s not at the Right Time in the Right Place.  We don’t often see the Seventh Harmonic (multiples of one seventh of the Zodiacal Loop, or 51½ Degrees, the “Septile”) very often, and Configurations or Combinations of Seventh-Harmonic Angles are even rarer. 

Of course the main reason we don’t see it is because it’s not a multiple of the thirty Degrees that the Zodiac is divided into – it’s Easy to Notice the alignment between ten Degrees of Leo and ten Degrees of Libra, a lot harder to Notice that ten Degrees of Leo are also aligned with two Degrees of Libra.  However, the software I use tallies Septiles, so I watch for Septile Configurations in every chart I draw.  Of all the charts I publish in this diary, not many include Septile Configrations.

All of which is only an introduction to this week’s Energy; the chart of the 10 January Eris Station we mentioned earlier features a Strong Seventh-Harmonic Pattern, drawn here in purple…

A “Grand Septile” consists of seven planets equally spaced around the Loop; here we have five of the seven, which form their own Pattern.  Recognize the shape, even though it’s “upside down”?

Image result for chrysalis

Let’s call this Configuration a Chrysalis, and in the process preserve the implication of  Imminent Transformation. 

There’s a clear emphasis on the “top” (which on the chart here is pointing down), a Pluto-Sun-Venus or Mandatory-Essence-Values Stellium (which means a Group of three or more planets).  Mandatory-Essence-Values.  That’s pretty heavy, and certainly applies to #MeToo – we Need to Focus on the Essence of our True Values, and quit Denying the constant Violations of it.  And it’s been a major emphasis of the International critiques of #ShitholePresident.

There are three purple wedges here, which are Septile Yods.  A Yod or Finger of God is the astrological equivalent of ACHTUNG! – “PAY ATTENTION!”  In the Seventh Harmonic it means Pay Attention to the Timing here, or quite literally, when combined with an Eris Station, Time’s Up!  for that Denial.  One of the Septile Yods points to the Pluto Stellium at the “head” of the Chrysalis. 

The other two Septile Yods point to the base of the Chrysalis – these are the Foundations of the Shift in Timing…

  • Dwarf planet Chaos says that It’s Time to Expand Waaay Beyond What You’re Accustomed To!
  • Ceres-North Node says that It’s Time to Make Your Mission on the Planet in the Lifetime the Permanent Focus of your Attention!

Which leaves the two “Shoulders” of the Chrysalis, which we can consider to be the Supporting Cast of the Change…

  • Neptune says that It’s Time to Avoid Material Confusion by shifting our Perspective to the Spiritual – or of course by Rejecting the mind’s attempts to Analyze the source of our Confusion, and Accepting it as an Emotion in its own Right, one that we need to just Sit With and Feel, without trying to Change it.  Confusion is the first stage of Growth.
  • Asteroids Vesta and Karma in combination tell us that It’s Time to Let Go of the Unconscious Archetypes that have been running our Life so far.  We’ve been writing about that in many recent posts.

The Initiation of Vesta by Karma occurred at 11am PST on 8 January, in 27 Scorpio, “A military band marches noisily on through city streets.”  Notice that it’s not at War, but it is trained for Warfare, and making a Statement loud and clear – It’s Time to stop letting your Unconscious Karmic Beliefs run your Life, and celebrate it with noisy fanfare; It’s Time to Speak Up when we Witness Discrimination or Abuse!

We can peek at the Future of our Emergent Butterfly by looking at the other tight Conjunctions and Sign Changes in the chart that aren’t related by Angle to the Septiling planets…

  • Pholus Initiates Klotho 9 January (5am PST) in 30 Sagittarius – “The Pope blessing the faithful”; A New Timeline for our sense of Responsibility.  Not about Blame, but about what we’re Willing to Respond to.  It’s Time to use our Spiritual Authority to Actively Reinforce Inclusive Behavior and Discourse.
  • Quaoar Initiates Klotho 13 January (8am PST) in 1 Capricorn – “An Indian chief claims power from the assembled tribe”; a New Timeline for our sense of Ultimate Authority, which flows from the Heart.  It’s Time to Recognize that we have the Political Authority to Speak our Truth.  Don’t worry about whether or not it’s Accepted by others; Truths that are Ready to Overcome Denial by the Collective will be Accepted, others will wait patiently, but your Voice is a Vote in the Consensus-Building Process.
  • Hylonome Initiates Lilith 1 February in 10 Capricorn – “An albatross feeding from the hand of a sailor”; It’s Time to Let Go of Inhibitions to our Self-Sovereignty and Fully Support Cooperation over Competition.
  • Sappho is moving from Capricorn into Aquarius – We’ve been Focused on the Practical and Private elements of increasing our Self-Love; now It’s Time to Extend our Self-Love into our Relationship with our Community by Speaking our Truth Out Loud.
  • Klotho is moving from Sagittarius into Capricorn – The New Timelines we’ve been Creating recently have been about Letting Go of Inhibitions; now It’s Time to Use our Newfound Clarity to Help to Fix What’s Wrong.

Never forget that the First Rule is Safety First.  Everyone will be trying to outshout everyone else, including the Racists and Bigots.  You don’t need to be Bullied, and it’s okay to Step Back rather than Argue.  Say your Peace and step toward those who are Speaking in Alignment with you.  Hupers can’t resist gravitating toward what’s Popular, so gradually people who aren’t fully Committed to their Truth will drift over toward a different Truth, to try that on to see if it suits them better. 

As Groups form, those Committed to False Truths will gradually Feel their Shame and step down, either recanting or disappearing.  The Sociopaths will keep Shouting, but they’ll end up Friendless on their soapbox Shouting into the Wind.  The Truths that are Ready for their Time will come forth.  You don’t need to Force them, just to Let Your Own Truth be Known, in a Safe manner.

We’ll talk about Ego Death, and its impact on apparent Safety, in the next post when we talk about the rest of the Eris-Station chart.

 

 

New Province III

December 30, 2017

Here’s a fabulous theme for starting our new Rebirth Year, from Master Kuthumi, channeled by Natalie Glasson…

https://www.omna.org/the-next-period-of-ascension-2018/

Magnificence

“Take a moment to imagine your magnificence, how would your magnificence appear?  Imagine your magnificence as the brightest spark of light within you.  Observe the spark of light expanding and recognise how your magnificence influences and transforms your entire being, even your thoughts, emotions and actions.  You are connecting with the most amazing, awe-inspiring aspect of yourself, you are connecting with the brilliance and radiance of the Creator.

“It is a focus upon your magnificence, its radiance and influence upon your being that we encourage now and throughout 2018.  This focus enables an awakening to take place throughout your entire being and systems, downloading more light into your being.  It encourages you to connect with the magic, synchronicities, wonderous opportunities and the supportive nature of the Creator.  Connecting with these sacred qualities allows you to become a natural and organic part of the divine flow of the Creator. 

“Many souls upon the Earth have reached a stage of having released a great volume of baggage and old wounds and so have the freedom to connect into the sacred qualities and abilities of their soul.  With an openness and awakening of your energy so you will be able to recognize wondrous opportunities within your spiritual talents and abilities, which are beyond your current imagination.  The more you connect with your inner magnificence, the more you will discover within your being, recognizing abilities you have always wished for and more.”

Makes me sit up straighter just reading the first sentence.  Master Kuthumi goes on to provide several other Magnificent invocations. 

There’s waaay too much going on to be able to write about it all.  Just today we have two Initiations that under quieter Skies we’d want to write about quite a bit – our Values Receiving Shaktipat from Self-Sovereignty (Lilith Initiating Venus at 9am PST), and the New Timeline That We’re Birthing Receiving Shaktipat from our Hidden Genius (Ixion Initiating Klotho at 8pm PST).

The Lilith-Venus Sovereignty-Values Initiation, which Begins a 14-month Cycle, takes place in the same Degree zone as yesterday’s Veritas Station (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/12/27/new-province-ii-veritas/), so the Energies share the same elements.  The Adjustments to our Values will help us further Negotiate the profound but tricky Waters between our Ego’s Desires and our Soul’s Mission in the Lifetime (the Venus-Lilith-Sun-Hylonome [Letting Go of Blocks to our Commitment to Self-Sovereignty] Mjölner [Epiphany] across the Square [Challenge to Mastery] from the Moon [Passion] to Ceres-North Node [Consistent Dedication to our Mission], drawn below in metallic lines)…

The Birth of a Timeline Especially for our Hidden Genius to Dance Free (Ixion-Klotho Initiation) starts in 27 Sagittarius, therefore sharing much with the 17 December New Moon on the Galactic Center  (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/12/16/fateful-new-moon-ii/)…

The loudest Configuration in this Ingenue-Genius chart is our Challenge to Master (T-Square, red triangle) Self-Love (Sappho) while Witnessing the Birth of our Soul (Haumea Opposite Uranus-Pallas-Moira) into our Everyday Life.  That’s a Challenge because our Egos will fight Change tooth and nail.  Nothing Personal, it’s just that their Raison d’Etre is to Keep us Safe – which to them means Preservation of Self (ie, Ego) and Status Quo.  The Ixion-Klotho Initiation itself is a Blessing (Trine Bridge) in this Effort.

Hiding behind the T-Square is another Fez, this one a Sextile Fez.  Like before, the key is the diagonal Quincunxes (green lines), symbolizing Curiosity.  These are…

  • The Birth of our Resolve to Embrace All of our Emotions and other Pain (Haumea Quincunx Chiron).
  • The Use of our Fear as the cookie-crumbs that will lead us directly to our Hidden Genius (Moon-Sedna Quincunx Klotho-Ixion-Pholus)

While it may seem like these can be Dynamically Resolved (for instance, by Poor-Sweethearting and Tapping on Emotional Overwhelm or other Pain), they’re about Curiosity, so we’ll be ahead to PIAVA them first, to Open our Intuition to new information from the Unconscious.  If we rely totally on the Dynamic, we’re likely to Re-Create the Reality we already know.  Our PIAVAs might look something like…

  • “Ganeshi, Please Remove All Obstacles to my Noticing whenever Fear arises, and to my Dealing with it as the Experience of Fear in my Body, rather than as my thoughts about it.”

Your thoughts will always lead you to More of the Same.  The mind is the Ego’s Chief Enforcer.  The mind guards all those Limiting Beliefs that form the bars of the Birdcage that we Live in.  So how to Escape, without being nabbed by Sylvester while Granny is away?  Bypass the thoughts (which may sound like “What am I Afraid Of?” or “Why do I Hurt?”) and go directly to “I Feel Scared” or “Ouch, that hurts.” 

Where do you Feel the Pain or Fear in your Body?  Put All of your Attention squarely into the center of it, and keep it there till it moves.  When your Attention wanders, gently bring it back.  As the Fear or Pain Changes, follow it.  Where does it lead?  When the Pain or Fear gets too boring, or disappears (which could take days – so be it), go on with your Life.

  • “God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that I Notice immediately whenever I Encounter Pain, or Emotions that I Identify with rather than Feel.”

You’d add the rest of the Theta Healing Ritual structure of course – https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/theta/, and then Change the Subject (see below ).  Striving for Consciousness, we want to Notice whenever we step out of the Present Moment (which for most of us is almost all of the time).  We do that when we stop Observing what’s happening in “Real” Time and focus on the Past or the Future, or let any of our many Archetypes take over.

Art by Catherine Lepange from
Thin Slices of Anxiety: Observations and Advice to Ease a Worried Mind

We might Ask ourself, for instance, “How old am I?”  The answer I got when I asked that question was six.  Yes, kindergarten for an Introvert was a time of high anxiety.  So I seem to have an Archetype who Believes that Avoidance (for Safety) and Worry (for Problem-Solving) will help me Survive.  Where does it Live in my Body?  Where my Buttocks meet the chair.  When I follow it, it leads me to age 25, negotiating to escape the draft.  I end up with a remarkable burst of Energy.

When I’m Anxious and not Conscious that I’m Anxious, I’m in the grip of an Archeype.  The grammar is profound.  I am Anxious means very simply that I am Identified with the Emotion of Anxiety – it is I.  As a Conscious Observer Asking what’s going on in my Emotional Body, I Feel Anxious is in a totally different Universe.  Now instead of Anxious is I, it’s Observing is I.  I could go a step further and Poor-Sweetheart myself – “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Anxious, aren’t you.”  Now, as long as I’m not saying it mechanically, Compassion is I instead.

There’s nothing wrong with Archetypes; they’re Survival mechanisms.  Like Learning to drive can make your Life easier or more Satisfying or more Productive.  An Archetype is any Habit that we do without being fully Present to it.  When I was six, Anxiety was Overwhelming to me.  I couldn’t function, I couldn’t keep myself Safe.  So I Learned how to sublimate it, to turn it down, so I could have free Attention for whatever else there was.  It was not Authenticity, it was Efficiency, it was Survival.  That’s a lot more Important when you’re six. 

Now I’d like to be more Present, more Authentic with myself, more Conscious.  I want to Feel my Anxiety rather than Being it.  I want to be able to Choose which Archetype to use in each situation, or Choose not to use any, and just be Vulnerable.  Most of our Archetypes operate below the level of Consciousness – that’s the way we wanted them to work, so we could operate a Timeline and still have some Free Attention.  That makes them hard to detect, so when we want to Change them we have to call them out somehow – with a PIAVA for instance.

Anxiety of course is just another name for Fear.  So I PIAVA to become an Observer of Anxiety.  It no longer Overwhelms me when I Observe it.  When I am Anxiety without being Conscious of it, I’m Regressed to age 6.  The Regression is complete – I have none of the Skills I’ve Learned since then.  I may not be Overwhelmed, but I’m a captive, tied to the ground by tiny men with ropes.  Once I Realize – Notice – “Oh, I’m Feeling Anxiety,” I Disidentify, and it dissipates.

A recent timely Pleiadian Channeling from Dan Scranton…

http://danielscranton.com/accessing-higher-frequencies-%e2%88%9ethe-pleiadian-high-council-of-seven-2/

“It is a matter of frequency.  It is a placing of attention upon a particular frequency that is the answer to most questions.  That is your journey now.  This is an energetic journey through frequency states, you see.  Everything else that plays out in your reality is a reflection of the frequency that you hold.  It really is not any more complicated than that.  Therefore, give more of your attention to the frequency that you are holding.

“How do you that, you might wonder.  Well, the more in tune you are with your feeling state, the easier it is for you then to measure the frequency that you are holding.  The higher frequencies feel better in your physical bodies than the lower ones, and there is no reason for you to fear or judge the lower frequency states.  There is no reason for you to judge yourselves for having activated those lower frequency states.  That is the first place for you to start.

“Let go of any notion that you have that a frequency you are holding is somehow inappropriate, that you should fear it, or that you should feel bad about yourself for accessing it.  It’s just there to be experienced and also to give you a point of relativity.  You cannot really know that you have moved from a lower frequency to a higher frequency without first becoming aware of the lower frequency and what it feels like in your body.

“So start by celebrating that you are aware of the frequency that you are holding.  And if you are holding a higher frequency, then simply amplify it, ride the wave of it, enjoy the feeling to the greatest extent possible.  Let go of your desires to understand where the frequencies come from, how you got to where you are, and just embrace it all.

“Activating a frequency is as easy as modifying your breath.  You know that when you pay attention to your breathing, you can shift how deeply, how slowly or quickly you are breathing, and the same is true of your frequency state.  If you put your attention on it, with the intention of raising it, it does not have to be more complicated than modifying your breath.  In fact, you could say that the two go hand-in-hand.

“So utilize your breath and your ability to consciously breathe in order to tune yourself to your frequency state, in order to amplify your frequency state, and in order to enjoy those higher frequency states to the greatest extent possible.  And then, it is our recommendation that you do not look around your world for immediate results.

“Instead, continue to enjoy your ability to modify your frequency, because in doing so you change the way you feel.  And then the reality around you doesn’t have to change in order for you to feel good.”

 

 When we PIAVA (Pray, Intend, Ask, Visualize, or Affirm, or any of the many other methods of inviting Magnetic Creativity to emerge from the Unconscious), we need a way to keep our Habitual thought Patterns from interfering and Creating Just More of the Same.  Our Limiting Beliefs are embedded in our thought Patterns, and one of their Projects is to keep us Unconscious to our Archetypes.  So we have to send our thought Patterns off on Vacation.  We do that by Changing the Subject.

That means Attending to something else, with as much Focus as we can muster.  The prototype is finding our car keys.  They aren’t where we usually keep them, so where the Hell are they?  We look where we last used them, we look everywhere we’ve been.  No luck.  We get bored looking, so we Change the Subject.  We pick up the newspaper instead (we’re old-fashioned), and forget about the car keys (that last part’s important).  A random article mentions Popcorn, and we suddenly remember we were using the keys in the garage to pry a stuck kernel out of the popper.

Now, we were Psychically Ready to Receive our car keys.  If we weren’t, if our Guides were trying to keep us off that patch of black ice, then it might be a while before we “stumble” onto them.  When we’re dealing with Opening the Unconscious, or with Manifesting something into hardcopy Form, we may well not be Ready.  If we’re Ready to Receive, the Universe simply delivers.  All Prayers are Answered.  If we aren’t Ready to Receive, our Prayers are still Answered, but in a different way.

What the Universe, or our Guides, or Whomever you want to call “them,” will Give us a Lesson in why we haven’t been Receiving  all along what we’re having to Ask for.  So our third step, after PIAVAing and Changing the Subject, is to Pay Attention to what the Universe actually Delivered.  We want to wait a day or two after Changing the Subject, to allow time for the Delivery.  Then we look to see what, if aything, happened that was unusual after we Changed the Subject. 

Maybe we Asked for Enough Money (an oxymoron, as a friend used to say), and the Universe made us work overtime.  We wanted More Money, not More Work – but that’s not what we Asked for.  So the Universe handed us More Money in the most efficient way it could, using our own pre-existing Patterns.  Next time we’ll know to Ask for More Money and More Free Time to Enjoy it.

Often it’s not so Clear.  We maybe Ask for a New Friend, and all of our Old Friends are suddenly filling all of our time.  What happened there?  We could guess, but would that apply to you?  You’re the one who has to guess.  Sometimes all we can do is PIAVA to understand the Riddle.  Sometimes we don’t seem to get anything.  A lump of coal in our shoe.  We can put our analytical mind to work on this end of the puzzle, but don’t make Conclusions without testing to see if they actually fit the circumstances.

New Province II – Veritas

December 27, 2017

Our next astroevent is the Station of asteroid Veritas (Truth) on 28 December (8am PST).  It sits next to dwarf planet Orcus (Oath-Breaking) at the top of what we call a “Pointy Square Fez.”  Fez because its shaped like the trapezoidal Turkish hat, and Pointy because, unlike Oblio, it has a point, namely Veritas-Orcus.  While that puts kind of an obvious emphasis on Veritas itself, let’s start with the Fez…

We call this one a “Square” Fez because its sides are Squares (two planets three Signs apart, the red lines), which makes the top and bottom a Sextile and a Trine (blue lines).  Which gives us two related Challenges (Squares), Challenges to Mastery of course.  Why else would we Challenge ourself?  The two Squares are…

  • Moon Square Aletheia – asteroid Aletheia is another symbol for Truth, wo we have our emphasis doubled.  The Moon ultimately symbolizes Authenticity – when your Emotions and Thoughts and Energies are all lined up, without guile.  Authenticity allows the Passion necessary for Manifestation.  So we can think of this as Honesty/Authenticity trebled.  In our day-to-day Lives, how often do we meet this Challenge?  Can we do it even once?  Seems like a biggie.
  • Atropos Square Sun-Lilith-Hylonome – Atropos signifies Endings, and being Conscious, these would be Endings we Choose, right?  Sun-Lilith-Hylonome would be about Rejecting Archetypes that would have us Abandoning whatever Self-Sovereignty is of the Essence for us.  We may have friends to whom we feel no need to Give Away our Power, but it may be quite the opposite with our Lovers.  So we’re Challenged to Abolish some of our Karmic Archetypes. 

They wouldn’t be Karmic if we didn’t Identify with them, as in being Ego-Attached to them, as in Ego Deaths are likely prescribed here.  What are the signs?  Starts with Confusion, right?  We have to Celebrate Confusion, and rigorously Avoid trying to Rescue ourself from it by “Figuring it Out.”  Confusion is a valid Emotion.  Sit with it till you can Embrace it Unconditionally, without having to Change it one iota.  Same with Fear.  Nemesis and Sedna are otherwise engaged, so these will probably sneak up on us.

It’s been a whlle, but you may remember that we’ve said that the key to a Square Fez is the embedded Quincunxes, the green lines.  Quincunxes stand for Curiosity.  Like Confusion, we need to retrain ourselves.  We want the sort of Curiosity that’s akin to Awe and Wonder, like we had the first time we tasted an excellent Bearnaise Sauce.  Jaw-dropping.  It’s not about Figuring it Out.  That’s Fear.  We want to Celebrate Curiosity as another valid Emotion – and one of the best!  Like Love, True Curiosity eschews Judgment.

You can tell when a Romance is dying, because Judgment replaces Curiosity.  It’s no longer “Wow, that’s a Surprising Reaction!”  It’s “I thought you’d say that.”  Romantic Love and Judgment are Opposite sides of the same Coin, and Curiosity is the Edge.  Unconditional Love and Unconditional Curiosity are the Gold that the Coin’s made of.  Strive for Awe in every spare moment.  Cherish “Don’t Know.”  So, what are these Quincunxes about?

  • Moon Quincunx Atropos – “Ganeshi My Love, please Remove All Obstacles to my Learning to Express myself more Authentically.”  Not a Question – the Question is, What Arises when we Contemplate exactly that in all manner of situations?  Fear?  Yes-Buts?  Excuses?  Strategizing?  How will we Respond to these?  Unconditionally Lovingly?
  • Aletheia Quincunx Sun-Lilith-Hylonome – “I Wonder what it would be like to really Revert all of the Archetypes that keep me from Self-Sovereignty in all possible situations.”  Yes, you can spend time Imagining what it would be like.  But again, no Strategizing.  What if you were Completely and Totally Safe at all time?  Worst case, we could get Dead, or be Tortured.  Well, we’ve done that before many times, haven’t we.  Boring!  Why would we Choose that again? 

Now, if it works, working forthrightly with these PIAVAs should Miraculously circumvent the Squares.  If you can actually Stay in Curiosity rather than trying to “Fix” it, then it should work.  Sure, it’s hard.  Just bring yourself back to “Don’t Know” every time you catch yourself working the Puzzle.

Okay, now what about the Point? 

Well, with Orcus sitting around with Veritas, we’ll be Faced with the Truth of All of the Oaths we’ve ever sworn.  “I’ll always Love you, Mommy!”  “I’d do anything for Love, but I won’t do That!”  “I Swear Allegiance to the Emperor!”  “I Vow Never to Betray the Goddess!”  “I don’t Believe they actually stick that thing in here!  I’d never let them do that!”  “I’m not going to Let Them Get Away with it this time!”  “I promise to Love, Serve, and Obey you till Death do us part.”  Et cetera!

Those things – Vows, Oaths, Promises – are so sticky!  They become Archetypes and Unconscious Limiting Beliefs almost as soon as they’re uttered, and they afflict seven generations after you.  Some of our “irrational” Fears are the result of Vows made four generations back, and passed down to us.  We have no idea how our Fear and the original Vow are connected, because the Oaths were rapidly sublimated.  You may not like to go out after dark because of a promise your great great great grandmother made to her mother.

Well, this week we get to see the Truth of our Limiting Beliefs, if we’re Open to it.  But wait, what’s that big blue triangle pointing to Veritas-Orcus?  That’s a “Grand Trine,” signifying Great Blessings!  So we’re more likely to be Blessed with Gentle and Loving Insights, rather than being Tortured by Traumatic Memories that aren’t even ours.  Wouldn’t hurt to even PIAVA that we be Liberated from all PTSD this week.

A Grand Trine means that the three Energies represented by the corners operate smoothly together – the Insightful Truth about the Oaths that Limit us (Veritas-Orcus), our need to Transform the places where our Essential Self-Sovereignty is taken from us by our Archetypes (Sun-Lilith-Hylonome), and our Passion and Authenticity (Moon) – these form a tight Collaboration that will operate without our Control or even Consent.

The Moon moves one Degree every two hours, so if we’re using our normal three Degrees of Sensitivity, the Grand Trine (and for that matter the Fez) will be intact only from about 2am till about 2pm PST on 28 December.  Depending on our own Sensitivity, we’ll be Feeling the Impact of the Veritas Station Conjunct Orcus for several days beforehand.  So there may be some unpleasantness on the way to 2am on 28 December.  If there is, Humor it.  Know that it will Resolve itself when the Grand Trine takes effect, you need only wait.  Try to Imagine that it’s just a Coen Brothers movie, and it’ll be over soon.

This three Degrees of Sensitivity is useful if we’re thinking about What the Current Moment’s Zeitgeist will Feel like.  Suppose we’re starting a new Project this week, though.  This chart would have an impact on the Project, as its Birth chart.  For that, six to eight Degrees of Sensitivity or even more is relevant, even though the three-Degree threshold will still speak to the most Intense parts of your Project.  That would give the Moon a 32-hour window rather than twelve.  And we’d also have to factor in Neptune, Mars, the soon-to-be Stationary Makemake, and Mercury, which are all within eight Degrees of the Veritas Station Degree.  And the planets in the first chart in the Fateful New Moon III – Survival post…

Which would actually be a great Boon, as we’d gain the Manifestation Power of the 2 January Makemake Station*, the Resolve toward Sovereignty in the 29 December Lilith-Venus Initiation*, and the fascinating Educational and Intuitive Blessings of the 1 January Full Moon*, while the Grace in the Varitas Station further Heals the Memories of Abuse in the Quaoar-Saturn Initiation and Liberates more Life Force for us.  Such Projects would include The Year 2018!

* We haven’t written about these yet.

Yang Feminine I

December 13, 2017

A reader has asked us to review the possible astrological motives behind the current, rather amazing, example of a Tipping Point, where people are starting in some cases to Pay Attention and even Respond when women are assaulted – of which Alabama’s Choice might be an example.  This is a Big Question, and it will take me a long while to give it the Attention it deserves, but I’ve uncovered a few clues so far, so I’ll start what will undoubtedly end up being a looong series…

My first guess would be the Uranus-Pluto Cycle that was Initiated in 1965, because it’s one of the bigger (ie, longer) Cycles that’s begun in “our” era.  Pluto is about major Changes of Cultural Winds (equating to Jung’s “Universal” Unconscious, which we’re demoting to encompass not the Universe or even the Galaxy, but “only” our Solar System).  We could go on at length about Pluto’s role as Guardian of our known Solar System, until its demotion – Sedna plays that role now.  Pluto Protected Human Consciousness from having to deal with Reality, and played the role of a movie projector, projecting the Dominant Paradigm onto the Hologram we mistake for Hardcopy Reality.

It was the Waxing Square of the Uranus-Pluto Cycle – when the Cycle’s Energy emerges from gestation and becomes “Permanent,” or at least Pervasive – that ushered us through the whole 2012 Transformation.  The word Transformation or TranceFormation – Formation of a (New) Trance, a new movie in the projector – is in my humble opinion the best single keyword to characterize Pluto.  The second-best keyword is “Mandatory” – it’s usually futile to Resist Pluto’s Transformations, though they can be adapted within Limits.  So to me the Uranus-Pluto Cycle Increases the degree to which the Soul Self insists on its right to partner with the Ego, as its Supervisor.

I don’t regard Slavery as a natural unfolding of the Soul Self, except of course as a Heuristic or Learning Exercise.  So any new Uranus-Pluto Cycle is going to make it more difficult to keep enslaving half the People.  Also, because Emotion is more often a carrier of Intuition than Intellect, and because Women for one reason or another are likely to have more dexterity with Emotion than men, Women tend to be more Intuitive, at least for now.  That is, they have better access to Information that is usually hidden from the Intellect.  Hence they are likely to be more Conscious.

So it’s not like Women became Conscious starting in 1965.  There have been untold Uranus-Pluto Cycles prior to this one.  But 1965 would be expected to see a Transformation of Consciousness of our Soul Self, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see such a Transformation led by Women.  And of course we did see just that; there was huge surge in “Feminism” or Respect for the Sovereignty and Leadership of Women, in the 1960s.  Sensitive people would have begun Feeling the 1965 Uranus-Pluto Initiation several years prior to the Exact Conjunction, so we don’t expect a sudden Transition.

The current Uranus-Pluto Cycle began at 18 of Virgo, “A Ouija Board” – in other words, forget Logic and Proportion and Pay Attention to the Red Queen.  Gracie’s White Rabbit was released by Jefferson Airplane in 1967, and was certainly a very apt anthem for the Times (Zeitgeist is another good keyword for Pluto).  She wrote it for her previous band in 1965-66.  Close your eyes and let the Ouija Board guide your fingers – Intuition.  We could go into the Uranus-Pluto Initiation chart at length – it’s Fascinating – and I hope to find time to do just that.

But let’s shift our Attention to the Present for a minute, as that’s where the Tipping Point seems to have occurred (not that there won’t be a lashback or two).  Where is the Uranus-Pluto Cycle now?  They’re 107 Degrees apart.  Just beyond a Biseptile.  The Septile series or Seventh Harmonic is about Timing.  Isn’t that a Coincidence.  Of course it’s not an exact Biseptile.  So what else do we have?

Let’s look at 5 October 2017, the day the New York Times published their expose about Mr. Weinstein.  That was certainly a significant moment, and in hindsight (at least until someone more prominent is impeached) an excellent candidate for the Tipping Point itself.  Anything relevant going on then (I haven’t looked at Mr. Weinstein’s chart yet, because we want to focus on the impact on the Planet, not on him)?

Well, a new Venus-Mars Cycle was Initiated on 5 October.  When we’re talking about sexual and social intercourse, Venus-Mars is certainly where we’d look first.  We looked at Uranus-Pluto first because the Venus-Mars Cycle is only about 18 months or so, and we wanted to look at a longer Cycle.  So, where was the Venus-Mars Initiation?  Duh, 20 Virgo!  Only two Degrees from the 1965 Uranus-Pluto Initiation, the environs of which will remain a “hot spot” on the Zodiac till we start the next Uranus-Pluto Cycle in 2150. 

Virgo 20 is “A caravan of cars headed to the West Coast.”  Well, that was certainly happening in 1965 and thereabouts, with flowers in their hair.  How do we relate it to Mr. Weinstein and the Tipping Point for assault on Women?  Elsie read these Symbols in 1925 (in San Diego), so a caravan of cars would not have been a common occurrence yet.  But on long trips cars may have been likely to travel in caravans, as auto services would have been scarce.  It wasn’t until twenty years later, after World War II, that people flooded to Southern California, after seeing what a paradise it was while they were stationed on the edge of the Pacific Front.  So these people (or cars) were harbingers.

Is it a coincidence that the West Coast is burning up as we move through this Tipping Point about Respect for Women?  Collapse of an Olde Order – Death by Fire – would be an appropriate interpretation.  If you follow the Sun, the West Coast is as far as you can go without a boat; darkness follows.  The Venus-Mars Cycle is really about how our Inner Female and Inner Male are getting along with each other; the sexual stuff is just a Mirror.  So we have the Spirit (Fire) of an Olde Order descending into Darkness, and a caravan coming to Celebrate a whole new level of Integration, to witness the Heiros Gammos that’s underway.  Heiros Gammos is certainly an excellent Initiation into 5D Reality.

The only major Angle that the Venus-Mars Initiation made was a Square (Challenge) to Asbolus – which symbolizes Intuition.

Anything else happening on 5 October?  Yes, another Initiation, of Hopi by Haumea – Rebirth of Respect for All Things.  I’m not sure we need to even say more about that.  But for the record, it occurred at 25 Libra, “The sight of an autumn leaf brings to a pilgrim the sudden revelation of the mystery of life and death.”  Suggesting that this is no ordinary Rebirth, but an Enlightenment.  This Initiation Opposes Uranus-Eris (Revelation of the Soul’s Truth) and is Squared by Nemesis (Ego Death). 

Bingo.  We could go on, and as time allows we will.  We could sleuth out the other 99 Monkeys.  But we should remember that any chart speaks with many voices, most of which Harmonize.  For instance, on 5 October OR10 (Intrusion of Memories into Consciousness) and Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) were only two Degrees apart.  Their Initiation occurred a while back, and they’ve been Dancing ever since; it will be interesting to see what manifested into “Real” Life on or about their Initiation date.

There are a number of other Initiations in the neighborhood of 5 October – Pholus-Lilith (Taking Full Responsibility for Self-Sovereignty!), Quaoar-Lilith (Self-Sovereignty as Survival), Saturn-Lilith (Self-Sovereignty as The Most Important Thing), Ixion-Lilith (Honoring the Sovereignty of our Hidden Genius), all near the Galactic Center, as well as mutual Unions between Varuna (the Life Force), Aletheia (Truth), Ceres (Sustainability), and Mnemosyne (Memory) on the Cusp of Leo (Self-Trust).  These suggest that Transition to the Yang Feminine is critical to our Survival, which is not very surprising at all.

Beyond Bounds and Boundaries

November 11, 2017

Here’s our 11:11 portrait, with its Grand Septile, drawn in purple…

The Septile is the Seventh Harmonic, one-seventh of the way ’round the Zodiacal hoop.  Of course the Universe is Integral, so there’s no way one segment of it can be more important than any other.  Like the day that the Heart and the Brain were arguing over which one of them was the most critical to the Survival of their Vehicle, when in walked the Colon.  But I do think of the Seventh as one of the more Important Harmonics, mostly because it’s largely ignored in Western Culture.  While they may be able to finesse or brute-force most of the other Angles, the Ego and the Intellect, the two Heroes of Western Culture, have no control over the Seventh Harmonic.

The Seventh is about Timing.  It’s what Don Juan meant when he was always urging Castaneda to “Save his Energy” – when Timing is right and your accounts in the Bank of Intention are full, Miracles happen.  So we need two things to manifest this sort of Effortlessness.  We need a meaningful amount of Attention and Passion devoted toward What-We-Want (complemented by little Attention to What-We-Don’t-Want and lots of Attention to Gratitude toward What-We-Have), and we need to be Open to our Intuition.  Without those two prerequisites, we don’t recognize it when What-We-Want steps in front of us.

We Clear our Intuition and Center our Attention by Reverting our Self-Sabotaging Archetypes and unproductive Karmic Patterns – Goddess knows we been working on that!  Then we need Timing to be in the Right Place at the Right Time so we’re ready and available when the Portal Opens.  A Grand Septile, when seven planets line up more or less equally spaced around the Zodiac, isn’t that common. 

This one isn’t perfect; it has six of seven planet well placed, leaving one Vacancy.  As you probably know by now, a Vacancy represents the Most Important part of a Configuration for us Observers, because the Vacancy specifies the Energy that we have to provide, Consciously, to Complete the Grace.  However, a Fixed Star, Agena, falls conveniently into the Vacancy, so we have help and Guidance after all.  Agena is about the sacrifice that must be made in order to permit Growth.  Of course that’s usually an Ego Death, because it’s our Ego’s job to Defend the status quo.  However, we know how to make an Ego Death Effortless, don’t we, using our “Poor-Sweethearts.”

The exact Vacancy is 27 Scorpio, “A military band marches on noisily through city streets” – exactly the Void that the Defenders of what they’d like to see as the status quo have been trying unsuccessfully to fill.  Like most Revolutions, our Band is rag-tag, which is more than fine.  All we need to get our Timing right is Clarity, Passion, and Intuition.  We don’t need military precision – in fact we need its opposite, Yintegrity.  From the Lawn Order Perspective, that looks like Chaos.  In the 60s we called it Street Theater, and had good Fun with it, because we Trusted Completely that we were being True to our Self.

And whaddayaknow, Chaos and Trust are part of our Grand Septile.  The seven members are…

  • The Pluto-Juno Initiation, which is Exact at 6pm on 11/11.  We wrote about this Union-Jack-Lawn-Order-Warship Cycle at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/11/06/november/.  Another military metaphor.  Remember we’re dealing with the Unconscious, and in the Unconscious, Opposites are seen as variations on an Equal because once we’re out of the Dualistic mind, we see them as two sides of the same Coin, and the Coin is what counts.  So we have no hesitation to Celebrate the Cycle as an Ending to military Order, and Enjoy our Individuation.

Any flag symbolism reminds us of the Pluto-Chiron Initiation in the chart and prospectus for the Century and the Millennium – “A flag turning into an Eagle turning into a Chanticleer saluting the Dawn,” which is easy to interpret as Rigid Identity being Transformed into Enlightenment through Broad Perspective and Cognitive Dissonance (holding multiple “Contradictory” Perspectives at the same time – outside of Dualism, what was formerly Contradiction is simply Paradox).

  • Lachesis-Neptune; Neptune implies Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity, while Lachesis symbolizes Choice.  Which is to say that the Timing is Right for us to simply Step Out of any Archetypes we find Limiting us.  The Window is Open for Choosing to move directly to Spirit.  Or moving directly from 3D to 5D by investing Time in indulging How-We’re-Going-to-Feel-when-our-Life-is-Effortless-and-Delightful-and-our-Wishes-are-Granted-Automatically.  Or Imagining that the Rose Above the Sky Has Opened and the Light Behind the Sun Has Taken All.

The Exact Lachesis-Neptune Conjunction occurred at about 3am today 11/11.  It was not an Initiation, but a Confidence-Bulder.  The Initiation occurred 10 May of this year in 14 Pisces, “A lady wrapped in a large stole of Fox fur.”  We didn’t write about it at the time, because there were too many other amazing things going on then (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/05/09/the-rose-above-the-sky/) – which amazing things we can consider to be part and parcel of the entire 6-year Lachesis-Neptune, Choosing-Liberation Cycle – just as we can consider this Grand Septile as part and parcel of the entire 4-year Consciousness-or-Bust Juno-Pluto Cycle.  Even when Her Fur is stolen, Fox is difficult to outsmart.

  • Pallas-Moira; Lachesis is about Choosing when to Extinguish a Habit.  Moira is about Choosing whether to Accept our Fate or to Become Conscious that we Have Options.  We wrote a little about this Cycle at its April 2017 Conjunction (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/04/25/new-moon-26-4-17/): “With Moira (Fate) Conjunct Pallas (Boundaries) we’re probably talking about Being Given Opportunities to Notice and Change long-term and Karmic Habits of Giving Away Our Power.” 

Pallas’s and Moira’s orbits differ in length by only a month, so it’s almost impossible to isolate their Cycles in any organized fashion, as they Dance with one another constantly.  Consequently, Huper Boundaries are fickle.  People can go from enemy to friend and back in the blink of an eye.  In this era of Polarization (brought on by the Grand Cross in the Century and Millennium chart), every Pallas-Moira Conjunction, like this one, is an Opportunity to extend our Unconditional Love further.  Which is, after all, another prerequisite to Enlightenment.  And you know that the Timing is Right.

  • Dwarf planet Chaos represents the Unlimited-Potential characteristic of the 5D Universe when compared to 3D.  Just another indication that the Timing is Right to Exceed what we Believe we “Deserve” to Receive.  Deserving and Receiving are connected only in Abusive, Manipulative, Power-Over Relationships.  If you tend to connect them, the Time is Right to Allow yourself to Receive without Limit, because it is your birthright.  It’s best to begin PIAVAing smaller things, so you Learn to Trust your Ability and Willingness to Receive.  That Allows you to work up to Everything-You-Want.

No, we aren’t implying that Wanting is Sacred.  In fact, Wanting is a form of Scarcity.  Abundance (Having Enough to Share) is more conducive to forward progress.  But Wanting is natural, and if we can keep our Wanting within the range of the Doable, we can Want-Receive, Want-Receive, Want-Receive, and so on, till we’ve Learned to Trust the process.  Once we “graduate,” Receiving will be Instantaneous and not mediated by the Ego.  In the interim, we PIAVA as our practice at breaking the chains of the Ego’s beloved but Limited Plan-Act-Effort strategy.

  • Ceres.  Ceres means Sustainability.  Here, it just means that it’s Time to make this Change Permanent.  Not that you won’t have occasional or even frequent reversions to 3D, some by Choice.  But basically, once you use this Timing to Step Over the 5D Threshold, you won’t be going back except to visit.  The astrology Changes daily, even hourly, so this Portal is only Open for a few minutes, right?  Wrong.  All Beings Learn, and Hupers as well as any.  Every astrological Moment is an Opportunity to take that Moment’s Vibration into your Body and make the Energy Permanently yours.  All you need to do is Choose it.

Many of us hesitate to jump directly to 5D because we Fear we’ll leave behind What-We-Love.  Actually, indulging that Fear as an Anxiety, rather than Tapping it Out, is more likely to result in you getting left behind while What-You-Love makes the jump!

  • Which brings us to Makemake-Eurydike.  Eurydike means Trust.  Trust that you can Choose to make this Energy yours Permanently.  And of course Makemake means like it sounds – Make Make, Manifest Manifest.  Manifest What-You-Want.  Energy follows Attention, so be watchful that you catch yourself when focusing on What-You-Don’t-Want, as soon as you can.  It’s so tempting, it takes eternal vigilance.  When you catch yourself, Tap it Out.  Tapping is ideal for Negative Thought Patterns, because the whole idea is to Acknowledge that the Negative is embedded in your Energy System, then by Tapping, Rebalance your Meridians.  “Even though I tend to Attend to What-I-Don’t-Want, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself…”

The Makemake-Eurydike Initiation occurs 15 November, 5am PST, at 5 Libra, “A teacher revealing to his or her students the foundation of an inner knowledge upon which a ‘New World’ could be built.”  Pretty Big, eh?  It’s a 5-year Cycle, about Trusting that Receiving is not about Deserving, but about Allowing.  We make our bed first, by Clearing our Limiting Beliefs and Toxic Habits, Inviting our Intuition to Guide us to the Right Timing, and working with our PIAVAs. Then we can Relax and Enjoy sleeping in it.

  • And finally, the Star Agena.  It’s a major star in the Centaurus Constellation, which is all about Chiron’s Sacrifice.  In other words it’s the Symbol for Poor-Sweethearting, because that’s the sort of Self-Empathy which Heals “unhealable” wounds like Chiron garnered, thanks to the consequences of Herakles’s theft of Pholus’s wine.  Or, from the Patriarchal Perspective, Pholus’s failure to be Fully Able to Respond.  As one of the agents of the Patriarchy tasked to destroy the Matriarchy, though, Blame falls on Herakles.  If you still do Blame.  Blame is, you know, incompatible with the Unconditional Love we need if we want to make What-We-Want Permanent and Instantaneous.

The Yin-Feminine Matriarchy had its day and was ready to retire, though of course as is the Ego’s wont – even the Collective Ego’s, it couldn’t Acknowledge its own End.  So the Yang-Masculine Patriarchy had to hunt it down and behead it, so it could have a turn.  Just as our Birthing of the Yang-Feminine Dotterarchy requires that we hunt down the last vestiges of the Patriarchy and geld it. 

We agree with Genia Pauli Haddon that the Dotterarchy is characterized by, among other things – such as what from the Perspective of 3D looks like Magic; Power-With rather than Power-Over; Yintegrity rather than Yangtegrity; Self-Sovereignty rather than Codependence; Cooperation rather than Competition, and Balance between the Rights and Power of Individuals and the Rights and Power of Groups.  The Timing is Right.  Celebration of Diversity is a natural consequence of Unconditional Love.

None of these players are speedsters, so the Grand Septile will be with us for a while.  The quickest member is Pallas, and it will stay within three-Degree Sensitivity of its current position for another 12 days.

The 11:11 Juno-Pluto chart also includes a second Configuration in addition to the Grand Septile.  It’s drawn in light lines on the picture.  Juno-Pluto is the Focus of a Finger of God from Asbolus (Intuition) and the North Node (Life Mission), making Asbolus a Trine Bridge across the Nodes.  All that means that our two greatest Gifts here, apart from Timing, are our Intuitive Appreciation for the Hidden Skills that lie beneath our Karma (South Node), and our Attention to Anything and Everything that intrudes upon our Consciousness.

Maria Bethencourt has shared a great summary of this part of our Transition…

For instance, “Remember before your awakening how you would pray to your guardian angels at night?…WE are the Guardian Angels Of All life here now, for in 5d that is how we walk in service.  For The Highest Good Of ALL in Love.  Doesnt matter what level of consciousness, what dimension… doesn’t matter what chakra system, where, when, how…  The SOUL Of this Earth has Chosen to Offer this experience of Heaven On Earth without interference to All living beings on this planet.  You didn’t “think” prayers never get heard and answered?  We are Love, for Love is ALL THERE Is.  That is why IT Transcends the illusion of Space and Time, Consciousness and everything else…whatever that might be.”

It’s long, but I recommend a quick read of her whole article, as she catalogs many of the aches and pains and strange Sensations that we’re experiencing from what she calls the “Frequency Light Upgrades” or “FLU.”

Choice, Vitality, Instinct

October 23, 2017

We’re approaching a busy ten days, no matter how you usually Celebrate Samhain, All Saint’s Day, Día de los Muertos, Halloween, All Soul’s Day, or whatever other spin your Ancestors put on the end of the first Decan of Scorpio.  From our Calendar (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/1-calendar/)…

20 October-1 November 2017

Makemake Initiates Mars in 5 Libra on 29 October (12am PDT).

Lachesis turning Direct in 12 Pisces on 1 November (3am PDT).

Varuna turning Retrograde in 2 Leo on 1 November (9am PDT).

Quaoar Initiating Lilith in 30 Sagittarius on 1 November (~9am PDT).

There are no astrological vacuums.  If there’s little going on in the moment, it just makes us more Sensitive to what’s next.  And of course we all have our personal astroevents occurring most of the time; we only talk here about global events.  We wouldn’t usually expect to start noticing a Lachesis Station until a few days before the Event, or a Varuna Station till a week or so prior, but if nothing else is happening, the Energies are there to be appreciated.  They just aren’t as drowned out by louder voices.

Notice too that we’re in the Deep Void around the two Initiations – the current Cycle has virtually Ended, and the New Cycle has not yet begun.  So it’s the worst possible time to try to force Action on a Manifestation (Makemake-Mars), or to force our Sovereignty on our Survival (Quaoar-Lilith).  On the other hand, with any degree of Sensitivity we usually have a good Intuition about the New Cycle, and often an excellent Intuition about it. 

The usual Pattern is that the Energy of a Cycle is very strong around its Initiation, then goes “underground” till the Waxing Square, when it battles its way into prominence.  Our natural reaction is to Celebrate the New Cycle, then after the Initiation to be Disappointed when the Olde Guard “takes the T-Bird away” and squelches the Fun.  We’d be better off using the Energy of the Initiation to observe the short-term effects, and plan a long-term campaign to undermine the Olde Guard, to facilitate a faster take-off at the Waxing Square – though with Makemake-Mars the “long-term” will only be six months (versus two years plus for Quaoar-Lilith).

Lachesis’s namesake is one of the three Fates, the one who “cuts the chord” and determines how long a Fated Timeline will persist.  We consider Fate to be what happens when we’re Unconscious.  We Celebrate bringing into Awareness as many of our Karmic Dramas and Dragon’s Tails as we can wrestle to the ground.  When we’re Conscious of an Archetype, we can Choose whether it would be the most Appropriate Response to any given circumstance, or not.  So while it may Challenge us to Expand our Awareness, we consider asteroid Lachesis to be about Choice.

As it has been for a while, Lachesis is Dancing with Neptune, which is often associated with Confusion.  We know Confusion as the first stage of Growth in Consciousness, but we don’t always remember that we need to Surrender into our Confusion, rather than straining to “Figure it Out.”  Like Curiosity, it’s not about “solving” anything, it’s about Accepting that the Unknown is Approaching us, and being Open to whatever Delights are hiding behind it.  Our most important Choice here is Choosing to Challenge the Habit of Reacting to the Unknown as an intellectual problem rather than an Invitation to move to Spirit. 

This is a Cultural as well as Personal Archetype, but we Change Cultural Archetypes by Choosing to Respond differently this time in our own Life.  Choosing to follow our own Soul’s Guidance rather than following the Herd is Scary, as it often involves facing our own Abandonment.  But its a Clear and necessary path to 5D.  It’s not about Rejecting any specific Pattern out of hand, but about practicing New Alternatives so we can Learn them as we Unlearn what’s rote for us.  At the beginning of the Growth process we Reject the Old Pattern more often, so we can test New Responses.  Eventually we’ll appreciate the Archetype as a Powerful Skill, but first we must Learn that we have Choice.

It’s not a Coincidence that the Makemake-Mars (Manifestation-Action) Initiation occurs at the same time.  This two-year Cycle is about (5 Libra) “A person revealing to their students the foundation of an inner knowledge upon which a ‘new world’ can be built.”  A good candidate is the Knowledge that we’re here to be Awed by how Mother Nature stitches the Universe together, rather than to be Inflated by our prowess at solving story problems and sculpting Golden Calves in the image of our Ego.  So this whole new Cycle may not be about forcing Action on a Manifestation, but Allowing the Manifestation to Bloom in its own time.

Dwarf planet Varuna was named after one of the most ancient of Vedic God-Energies.  We interpret it as the Life Force.  We could say “our” Life Force, but it isn’t, we only borrow a shard of it for a while to Animate our Physical Vehicle.  We’ve just begun a new Aletheia-Varuna Cycle (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2017/10/02/relationship-reset/) that makes a Big Deal out of what is always True anyway, namely that when we Live The Truth of Who We Really Are, we’re able to Channel the Life Force much more Deeply.  Varuna is an Oceanic God, reminding us that The Truth of Who We Really Are is about What We’re Feeling in the Moment.

The current Varuna Station Opposes asteroid Nemesis (Ego Death) and makes a T-Square (Challenge to Mastery) to asteroid Karma (of all people), which is joined by asteroid Hopi.  So we can expect Challenges to whether we’re Living our Truth and Embracing our Ego Deaths, or Dancing to the tunes dictated by our Karmic Dramas, particularly those Dramas that involve Profiling and Bigotry (Hopi).  The Karma-Varuna Square gives us the Opportunity to really Let Go this time of the Limiting Beliefs that were up for us at their Initiation in August 2016.

The Karma-Varuna Cycle began in August 2016 at 30 Cancer, “A daughter of the American Revolution.”  Traditionally ultra-conservative, DAR has been assertively inclusive since Eleanor Roosevelt resigned her membership in protest in 1939.  They’ve since supported many conservationist and humanitarian efforts, many oriented toward support for military personnel and veterans. 

The gap till we can feel the Lachesis and Varuna Stations isn’t completely empty.  We’re enjoying a long-lasting Seminar (Grand Quintile) on Integrity (both yin– and yang– but especially yin-), unearthing our Limiting Beliefs, and Poor-Sweethearting ourself before we broadcast negative vibes that will echo back at us (Jupiter Quintile Juno-Chariklo-Pluto Quintile Chiron Quintile Aldebaran Quintile North Node Quintile Jupiter)…
