Held Emotions II

September 12, 2019

Our initiation into The Most Important Thing Is to Embrace our Held Emotions (Saturn Stationary Conjunct the South Node) is the 12 September, 2019 (8:30 pm PDT) Illumination of the symbol for Respect for All Things (Station of asteroid Hopi) in the same 14 Capricorn Degree.  These Conspirators are joined by the symbol for Becoming Aware of the Need for Self-Sovereignty (dwarf planet Hylonome, Stationary until 21 September) in 11 Capricorn.  That’s kind of a Knife Edge, Respecting All Things Without Giving Away Our Power to Any of Them.

The Self-Sovereignty issue is greatly Enhanced by a Challenge (T-Square) to the Expansion of our Awareness (Jupiter) from the symbols for Self-Sovereignty itself (Lilith) and Action/Anger (Mars).  Most especially, we’re Instructed by these “Stars” to Take Action to Get Neutral about Our Anger at The People Who Have Taken Our Power When We Gave It To ThemWe’re Angry at the People who have Taken Our Power, but it is Us – Unconsciously – who Gave It to Them.  Most of the time this happens because our Programmers installed Holes in our Auras that they could reach into and Pull our Puppet-Strings.

Here’s the chart…

If you’ve raised or otherwise worked closely with Children, you’ve probably Unconsciously or even Consciously done the same thing – found a place where you could Manipulate them, usually through Shame, in order to keep them under Control.   Especially in groups, they can be a handful…

Manipulating others for your own Gain isn’t the Travesty that it sounds like – we all do it to some extent.  There are two problems that arise when you Manipulate Children with Shame.

First, that Hole in their Aura doesn’t Heal on its own.  It stays with them into Adulthood until – and if – they Discover it and Heal it.  Till then they’re Compelled to Give Their Power Away to anyone who Discovers their Puppet Strings, and to their Frustration and Anger – and Shame, they won’t know why or how.

And second, that Hole wouldn’t be there unless it was part of their Karma, which makes it more Difficult for them to Discover and Heal it, because it was embedded in the Unconscious before they were even born.  These Huper Lifetimes are worse than Gollum’s Riddles!

There’s another Configuration that Illuminates this whole process – the symbol for Fate and Choice (asteroid Moira) and the symbol for Oath-Making and -Breaking (dwarf planet Orcus) are Merged (Conjunct) in the Hopi Station chart, and they volunteer to Help us with this Discovery (along with asteroid Veritas [Truth], they make a Double Trine Bridge [Easy Crossing] across the Nodal Axis).

Until we become Conscious of our Karma, and the Hole(s) in our Aura, we stuck with our “Fate.”  Once we Become Aware of it (Hylonome), we have Choice.  We were probably between a Rock and a Hard Place, but at some point lost in the Mists of Time, we Swore an Oath, and we Obeyed it, we Adopted it as part of our Identity, perhaps as the Core of our Identity.  Habits become Unconscious through Repetition, and in subsequent Lifetimes the Repetition was well established, but the Oath was Forgotten.  Bingo, Karma.  To Convert Fate to Choice we need to Break the Oath.  But we’ve long since Forgotten what is was.

That’s a fine Story for 3D Linear Time, but as you know, Time doesn’t really work that way.  If you’re like me, for the last week your “Random” Memories have been popping up all over the map, with little “rhyme or reason.”  That’s Real Time, with Bleedthrough from whatever Lifetime (which our Creative Memory usually inserts into the “Past” in our Current Lifetime) dripping through seemingly unpredictably, though we can often Discern Themes.

Creative Memory makes it seems like all these Random Tidbits and Recurrent Themes are part of “Us,” and they become our Identity.  But again, it doesn’t really work that way.  That’s 3D Ego-Level “Us.”  Shift your Identity to your Soul, and it looks very Different.  Karma is Personal only to the Ego, not to the Soul.  On the Soul Level, when we Choose to Slum it for a while on Earth, we pick a Project we want to help the Planet with.  The Karma is in the Energy Field of the Planet.  Other planets may not even contain the moving parts that “our” Karma is made from.

We come here to Help Convert some aspect of the Planet’s Fate to Choice, by contributing Replications of Alternative Patterns.  With enough Reps, by ourself and Others, new Habits are built into the Earth’s Energy Template.  Epigenetics, it’s called when Personalized to the Huper Level.  Project that back through Herstory.  Hupers used to be in the Habit of starving to Death in a bad winter following a poor Harvest.  Then Volunteers like you came and organized ways to store Food from one winter to the next, and ways to move Food from one valley that had a fortunate Harvest, to another that didn’t.  New Habits.

There was nothing Ego-Personal about all that; it was “just” Souls monkeying with the Energy Fields.  Death is no big deal to the Soul, it’s just another Experience.  The advantage of staying Alive longer was to build greater Knowledge and Wisdom.  A Hunter or Forager or Farmer with fifty years of Hunting or Foraging or Farming in their Winter Count is far ahead of one who flames out at twenty years.  Of course that’s just a Story too.  We as Hupers don’t generally have the Bandwidth to actually Grok what’s really going on in Dimensions (and Dementias) that we can’t even See or Touch.  But the more Metaphors and Stories and Perspectives we have, the more we can Intuit.

So how then do we actually Help Extinguish this Planetary Karma?  What if we could gather up enough Passion, Focus, and Power to just tell it to “Leave Now, and Never Come Back!“?

It’s too easy to Forget that Karma is not Present Moment, it’s not Real.  It’s a Paper Tiger, a Shadow Puppet.  Sméagol had to repeat his New Anthem three times before it took hold.  Your Attachment to “your” Karmic warp in the Force, the one you came here to Help Convert, may be a little stronger; it may take you up to ten Reps to gather enough Courage, Commitment, Passion, Confidence, Focus and Power to Banish it Forever.  The sooner you start, the sooner you finish.

We could even make “Leave Now, and Never Come Back!” another silent partner in PIAVA.  In the next post we’ll look at the other side of the coin, Healing the Holes in our Aura directly.

Trusting Hurricanes

September 1, 2019

Trust is our Biggest Issue till 3 September 2019 at around 3:30 pm PDT, as the astrosymbol for Trust Dominates (asteroid Eurydike Stationary).  That’s 6:30 pm Tuesday evening Florida time.  Sometimes the slate needs to be wiped Clean for us before we Recognize that we need to Start Over.  The astroevent is at 2 Aquarius, so you may be Feeling this pickle around any of your natal planets in the Zone between 29 and 5 Degrees.  Unless we make a long list of individual notes (for instance, we could dissect the four [!] Square-Fez Takeout Cartons), the chart isn’t easy to interpret…

The two major Challenges (T-Squares) are aligned so as to make one another Self-Resolving (Diamond Stars, ie, a T-Square and a Finger of God pointing to the same Focus), so we won’t worry much about them.  We’ll mention them in the next post, since they may scare us while they’re Resolving themselves.  They’re about Health, and about Which Way to Proceed as we Start Over.

Once we bypass those, we’re left with the Hurricane, in the form of a Singular Challenge between our Despair over Real and Imagined Traumas and the Threats that Climate Change brings (the naked Square between asteroid Karma Conjunct Chiron in early Aries and dwarf planets Pholus and Quaoar Conjunct on the Cusp of Capricorn).  We aren’t all Threatened by Hurricanes – some of us just by the Loss of the Illusion of Democracy.  The excessive immigration that Triggered Brexit, for instance, resulted from Drought in the Middle East and North Africa.

Our Karma is not Present-Moment, which is to say, is not Real.  It is Imagined.  Once it begins to Threaten us, our Expectations take over, and we Recreate the Patterns that we know so well, often making it Present Moment.  That’s actually Optional, but since our Karmic Patterns are so well-Practiced (often “Perfect” even), we often don’t Notice.

We’re familiar with Chiron, the symbol for Converting Despair to Miracles.  When we Poor-Sweetheart ourself (“You Poor Sweetheart, you’re feeling like those Old Bummers are threatening again, aren’t you.”), we shift from Identifying with what was Bumming us Out, to Identifying with Compassion.  As Einstein famously may or may not have said, we can’t solve a problem using the same Paradigm that Created it.  We have to Shift to a new Paradigm, and there’s no Shift more Powerful than a Shift of Identity.  Once we do, what was Impossible in the Old mindset, becomes Easy in the New one – a Miracle.

Asteroid Karma is Retrograde, and hasn’t been Initiated by Chiron yet – that won’t happen till New Years Day 2020.  Talk about Prophetic!  The New Cycle will begin at 2 Aries, “A comedian reveals Human Nature.”  In other words, we either need to Receive 2020 as a Cosmic Joke, or we need to get really good at Shifting our Paradigms.  We could even Shift ourself right into 5D, and skip 2020 entirely.

So one end of this Challenge is about Choosing to Either wallow in our Victimhood (Karma), Or Shift into Creating Miracles.  I found our earlier essays on Karma-Chiron to be informative (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/cycles/asteroid-cycles/karma-chiron/), especially the Cerussite-Barite-Hematite Crystals.

The other end of the Challenge is Climate Change.  Dwarf planet Quaoar symbolizes our Survival Instincts.  Our Instincts should tell us not to burn the siding to keep warm in the winter, but as the Slapstick Hupers that we are, we often “naively” do just that.  Thing is, they’re Instincts.  Like Intuition and Dream and Coincidence, Western “Civilization” and its Patriarchal focus on mind has relegated our Instincts to the “Only” category – You can Ignore that, it’s Only your Instincts (Hint – it was Political).

Dwarf planet Pholus, meanwhile, is about What we think we can Ignore.  Or even, What we haven’t thought about.  Are we not thinking about it because it’s Overwhelming?  Paradise CA was, as towns go, quite well Prepared for Fire.  But not at all Prepared for that kind of Fire, because no one even Conceived of it, or if they did, they Dismissed it as Paranoid.  As they say, Just because you’re Paranoid, doesn’t mean “they” aren’t out to “get” you.  Now, does it make sense to spend 300% of our time and resources preparing for something with a vanishingly small probability of occurring?  It’s “never” happened before, after all.

No, it doesn’t make sense.  But that’s what the Mythological Pholus discovered – major Catastrophe as a result of something he hadn’t considered.  Vanishingly small probability.  His oversight got him dead, along with many of his mates, and got Chiron so famously Wounded.  Now the probability of Catastrophic Climate Change, like the probability of Catastrophic Earthquakes for many of us, is closer to One than Vanishingly small.  Yet how much Effort do we put into Preparation?  How much Effort is appropriate?  It may be too late for Prevention.  How do we allocate our time and resources?

But if we’re Attending to our Instincts and Intuitions, it’s not about Making Sense, is it.  It’s about Trust, once we get out of the “Left-Brain” Paradigm enough to discover what to Trust!

Relationships 4

August 27, 2019

The Getting-Serious-about-Boundaries (asteroid Pallas entering Scorpio) chart features what we call a “Square Fez with Chinstrap” (or Take-Out Container if it’s upside down) because the primary Configuration is shaped like one of those Moroccan felt hats, with red lines (“Squares”) on the sides, plus what looks like it could be a chin-strap…

The two red lines – Challenges – are instructive…

  • The Expansion of our Self-Love (Sun – Juno [Edges of Consciousness] – Sappho [Self-Love] Stellium) is Challenged (Squared) by our New Perspective on Converting Fear and Anger to Power (asteroid Klotho [New Pattern] Conjunct dwarf planet Sedna [Fear and Anger]).  Or vice versa – it works both ways.

The dominant theme this week is Converting Fear and Anger to Power (Sedna Station) until 9am PDT 29 August.  That’s a Biggie, especially since it’s attached to the symbol for New Beginnings (Klotho).  We’ll be talking more about that.  In our neighborhood there’s a push to confront aerial spraying of toxic chemicals – which is both Angering and Scary – and an Effort to gain Power over it.

  • And our Efforts to Respond Constructively to our Survival Instincts (dwarf planets Pholus and Quaoar) are Challenged by our Inertia (asteroid Karma).  Getting Sprayed with Glyphosate certainly Lights Up our Survival Instincts.  Since that’s Assault with a Deadly Weapon, if our state had a “Stand Your Ground” law we could just shoot down the helicopter.  That would actually be our most Logical and Effective Response, given our Evolution.  But it would be Trouble.

So how do we Respond?  As Above So Below.  This is a microcosm of the Scorched-Earth Strategy that the Patriarchy so often uses to slake its Ancient Drive to Eliminate Competition, the Drive that’s putting the finishing touches on Destroying this Planet, for Fun and Profit.

We have a problem – What We Resist, Persists.  Or, as Jewel put it, we should No Longer Lend Our Strength To That Which We Wish to Be Free From.  And Resistance isn’t just Lending our Strength, it’s Giving it Away.  Especially when they just Laugh at our puny Efforts.  If the townsfolk were on our side, we could gather a Posse.  But the townsfolk Believe the Profiteering Propaganda that the Poisons are good for us.

The Challenge comes from our Karma (asteroid Karma).  As Without So Within.  The Outside World Mirrors our Internal Equanimity or Conflict.  Our Karma is the Habits that we’ve accumulated over our many Lifetimes or Identities.  What do we do when we’re Confronted with a Situation that we’ve been Frustrated by so many times before?  Once we Notice that we’re dealing with Deja Vu All Over Again, we have to Realize that we are no longer in the Present Moment, we’re in our Karma.

In our Karma the Bullies are kicking Sand on us.  In the Present Moment we’re Feeling Frustrated and Helpless because we Feel Powerless.  So, how do we Overcome Despair?  We Poor-Sweetheart ourself (Chiron is only 3½ Degrees from asteroid Karma).  “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Angry and Scared, aren’t you.”  Then we Change the Subject, put our Attention Elsewhere.  If we keep our Attention on what Riled us (…Lend our Strength…), we’ll just Wallow in our Anger and Fear.

Which doesn’t mean we can’t Act in the World.  But we’ll be a million times more Effective if we can do so from Neutrality, and we can’t do that while we’re in our Karma.  We need to find Equanimity first.

Rebirth Full Moon III

June 17, 2019

Prominent Feature Number Four is easy.  Our Merger of Instinct and Genius (Moon-Ixion Conjunct) sits in front of the Galactic Center.  That means several things.  It means that everything we’ve said should be multiplied by itself several times when we’re determining Importance.  It means that Headquarters is sick of the Petty Huper Ego screwing up our end of the Galaxy, and is making it very Clear that we need to get our Shit together instead of bathing in it.  It means that whatever Illusions we have about Making a Difference, are just Ego Trips – the notion that we’re In Charge here is a Cosmic Joke.  We just need to Surrender and Live the Best Life we can.

The fifth Big Banana in the 17 June Full Moon chart is what astrologers call a “Grand Cross.”  It should be a lot Bigger Deal than it actually is, because it consists of four LifeLong Frustrations (T-Squares) back to back.  But that very back-to-backness means they actually abet one another in weird ways, so a Grand Cross person is more likely to be a High Achiever and Skilled Multi-Tasker than a Champion of Frustration.  Rather than four Frustrations, it’s more Realistic, Empirically, to look at a Grand Cross as two intertwined Dichotomies (Oppositions).

We’ve already been discussing Dichotomies, so we’re on somewhat familiar Ground.  Let’s examine each of them…

  • While we’re Aware that Our Life as We Have Known It is falling apart, we’re also Conscious that Rebirth is in the air (dwarf planet Haumea Conjunct asteroid Veritas), so Ambiguity is rife.  On the other hand, we can see, with our own eyes and through the eyes of Others, that there are things in our Life that we can no longer Ignore (asteroid Klotho Conjunct dwarf planet Eris).  These seem almost Complimentary, so where is the Dichotomy?

That’s for us to Discover.  Astrology often makes synonyms Opposites, and we just have to Live with it.  For instance, we could hypothesize that our Fear about having to Face something we’ve been Ignoring is juxtaposed against our Intuitive Excitement about an Impending Future Feeling very Close at hand.  Wall Street’s maxim that a Bull Market “climbs a Wall of Worry” is a timely example.  We have no idea what’s going to Happen, but we know Something is, and it’s likely to be Big.

If we’re Comfortable with our Pluridimensional Intuition, we know that all Dichotomies are Fake News, because the Universe is a lot more complicated than that.  But if we Live in our Dualistic “Left” Brain, not knowing whether to reach for our Pinstripe Suit or our Life Jacket can be torturous.

  • One end of the second Dichotomy is about Getting Conscious of the Places where we Lack Self-Love or Overestimate ourself (asteroids Sappho and Juno Conjunct).  The other end is about Questioning whether we can Trust our Self-Confidence, or Trusting it Blindly (Pluto Conjunct dwarf planet Chariklo).  If we’re in a tight situation, making a Dichotomy out of these two could either Delight us or Terrify us.  “Excellent!  I know where to beef up my Self-Love!” or “OMG, what if they Notice that I’m Faking It!”
  • You can probably Imagine how the Confluence of these two Dichotomies can result in either a Nervous Breakdown, or a flurry of High-Functioning Multi-Tasking.  If we have to prepare for two possible Futures and we’re a dynamite Multi-Tasker (for example, we have a natal Grand Cross), we can stockpile Dinty Moore and Water in the garage, while we Pretend to be Hypercompetent in our make-or-break bid for the New Big-Money Client or the New Position and the Big Raise.  If we can only Focus on one Thing at once (for example, we don’t have a natal Grand Cross), we could be making a Choice, Questioning ourself, and swimming in Anxiety.

The Bottom Line is that there are very many high-profile Uncertainties in our World today.  Is it too late to sell the house at the Beach?  If I Go For Broke here will I be losing money on every transaction and hoping to make up for it on the volume?  The kids are still in school – I can’t just move to Kentucky and hope that factory doesn’t close too!  Which option will keep me out of jail and out of the hospital – Lie at the border, or tell them I’m bringing back $3,000 worth of Insulin?

Well, astrology does offer a clue here (Prominent Feature #6).  One of the four corners of the Grand Gross is more of a Blessing than a Frustration (the Haumea-Veritas T-Square is a Diamond Star or Self-Resolving Challenge).  So there’s a greater probability that the Impending Rebirth that we can Sense, will Save our Ass.  The clue even suggests a Course of Action – Acknowledge our Fear of the Unknown, and Trust our Skillset to find a path out of the Wilderness if necessary (the Finger of God that converts the T-Square to a Diamond Star is based on the Sextile between dwarf planet Sedna and asteroid Karma – Remember we have Good Karma too!).

♥ A few more items left, so have patience, we don’t need to hurry.  The impact of New and Full Moons is felt more after the event, so we’re still okay…

The Demise of Karma II

January 10, 2019

Who knows if it has anything to do with the Death of Karma or with what we’ve been discussing about 19-23 January, but Dan Scranton’s Arcturian Friends today suggest that…

https://danielscranton.com/lemuria-atlantis-e-t-s-new-timelines-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We have been exploring the possibilities that exist for humanity now that you have been working so well with the energies you have been sent.  We can see that new possibilities have opened up for you, and those possibilities involve a greater connection to the roots that you have there on planet Earth.

“We are seeing more of the crystals of Lemuria and Atlantis being excavated.  We are seeing a timeline where you discover the truth of how long there has been human life on your planet, and we are also seeing the possibility that irrefutable evidence of extra-terrestrial life on planet Earth will be discovered, and it will be discovered by someone who will not cover it up.

“Now, what all of this will do for all of you is yet to be determined.  More possibilities will open up for you depending on how you handle all of that information as a collective.  The information stored in the crystals from Lemuria and Atlantis are enough to take humanity to new heights.

“But with those discoveries that you have in your very probable future come the traumas, as many of you have yet to fully process the emotions you’ve experienced from the losses of Atlantis and Lemuria, and also from the experiences that you’ve had with extra-terrestrials.  Of course, not all of them have been good, and we are referring to past life experiences with them as well.

“What you have shown yourselves to be ready for is an intense time, a time of information coming to you that many of us in the higher realms believe you can now handle.  But you are the ones who must take it on and face it, and we are the ones who have faith in your ability to do just that.”

Now, once you get beyond your Pet Peeves and Minor Irritations and work on Choosing Timelines having to do with your Deepest Desires, even though Karma is Dead, it may not always Feel like it, because we still have to deal with our Held Emotions.  In general, Held Emotions are the ones we’d rather Die than Feel.  Which is to say, we have to be Willing to Experience an Ego Death in order to Open to a Held Emotion.  That’s precisely because our Current-Lifetime Ego (or the spawn of Many-Lifetimes Egos) have Walled off Held Emotions quite on purpose.

Held Emotions can be created by any number of processes, but they are sometimes the ones we were Feeling at a Past Death (or several) – we have a Past Death for every Past Life.  Sooner or later we have to Recognize that most of us have Died Physically many many times, and that from our Soul’s Perspective it’s a Significant Transition but not really a Big Deal.  We have tons more Experience with Ego Death than we do with Physical Death, so we’re no Rookie by any means, and we really need to Give Up being so Intimidated by Physical Death, and especially by Ego Death.

Of course that’s a Linear-Time Perspective.  Reframing things in terms of Parallel Lives might seem to shift that, but the Illusion of Linear Time has it’s own Reality.  Check Wikipedia for nine months (less if you were born Caesarean) prior to your Birth in the current Lifetime (type in month and year; it’ll list major events for each day), to see if you Recognize anything.  You may not – you may not have jumped immediately into another Lifetime – but it’s worth a check.

We can’t transfer Linear-Time Perspective into Parallel-Time Perspective without making adjustments – the foundation of Parallel Time is All There Is Is Now, so if we Open to it, we’ll find that our Death in our Current Lifetime is also happening “Now.”  If you think you already Know what your Current-Lifetime Death will be like, you might want to Meditate on it, Lovingly.  It may or may not be your Greatest Fear.

There’s a knife-edge between Lending Your Strength to That Which You Wish to Be Free From and Letting It Go.  To Enjoy the Death of Karma we need to develop Neutrality, so we’re neither Resisting it nor Inviting it.  Tapping it Out is an excellent (often Miraculous, in fact) way to Accept the Current Truth of a Fear, yet Let it Go almost Effortlessly (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4).

There’s a good reason we consent to be Hypnotized into Believing in Linear Time – it can get mind-boggling otherwise.  Of course that mind-boggle is exactly the Confusion we need to Embrace, as is, as the first stage of Growth.  It’s a little hard to operate in Everyday Earth Cultures when we’re that Confused, but we can Choose Curiosity or Wonder instead.

The Demise of Karma

January 9, 2019

The Demise of Karma has been greatly Understated.  Try this yourself.  Pick something that Irritates you, not a Biggie, but something that just makes you kind of Peeved.  A pet Peeve even.  Not a Big Deal like Creeping Fascism or Global Warming or In-Laws.  Something more on the level of people who put Ketchup on their Scrambled Eggs, or folks who wear socks with sandals.

Chances are you haven’t really noticed that whatever this Irritating thing is, it’s been following you around.  Ask a couple of friends – does it Irritate them as much as it Irritates you?  Do you encounter it more often than they do?  This is Karma.  Our “null hypothesis” (which we’re pretending to attempt to Disprove) is that Your Karma grabs You.  What we want to demonstrate, contrariwise, is that You grab Your Karma.

Give your Irritation a score between 1 and 10.  Since we want you to choose a Minor Irritation, assume 1 means “What a Dork,” and 10 means “That makes me upset.”  If 10 is “I want kill them” or “I’m gonna be sick,” forget it.  You don’t want to “start with the 300-pound weight,” as Steven Levine used to say.  Think of something Mildly Irritating.  Onions on a BLT maybe, or getting bored by too much Sunshine.

For a week, every time you think of this Irritation, Reinforce your Outrage.  Tell people that you “hate it when that happens.”  Tell yourself how Dumb it is, how much it makes you Uncomfortable.  At the end of the week, check your score again.  Has it risen, or fallen?  Remember that end-of-week score.

Now, during the second week, every time you think of this Irritation, Dismiss it.  Tell people that you “think that’s kind of Silly.”  Tell yourself how it might be Dumb, but it’s not hurting you, and it’s actually nice that folks can Express their Unique Selves.  At the end of this second week, check your score again.  Compare it to your end-of-week-1 score; has it risen, or fallen?  How does it compare to your beginning score?

As Jewel suggests, if you “no longer lend your Strength to that which you wish to be Free from,” you can Live “a Life Uncommon.”  Karma is actually DeadWe just haven’t Let Go of the Habit yet.  Habits, especially Addictive ones, aren’t Easy to Break, but we can do it.  Start small, build gradually, and give yourself lots of Slack, but Nevertheless, Persist.

The strongest feature of the 10 January Station of Eris (Revelation of What’s Been Denied) chart is a T-Square to the Stellium of Sun (Essence), Pluto (Transformation, aka Trance Re-Formation), and asteroids Atropos (Ending a Timeline) and Karma (Old Habits).  In other words, if you didn’t get the memo earlier, it’s The Death of KarmaAnd as we’ll see soon, the 12 January Lachesis Station (Choosing Our Timelines) chart is closely related.

When a New Cycle between two planets Begins, we usually start Acting it Out before the actual Initiation, as our Intuition gets us ready for the Change.  Then for the first while, the Energy is quite Strong, and the headlines are full of Struggle between those deeply Invested (especially Emotional and Financial Investments) in the Olde Ways, and those of us who are starting to Attune to the New Energy.

Any Stellium (a group of three or more planets in the same Zodiacal place) implies that a number of New Cycles will be Beginning, as each planet intersects with all of the others.  This Stellium hatches in a Big Way 19-21 January, when Mercury (Awareness), Karma, and Atropos all cross the South Node (Karma, Held Emotions) at 27 Capricorn…

  • South Node Initiates asteroid Karma 19 January – Our Karma and our Held Emotions get up in our face.
  • South Node Initiates Mercury 21 January – We become more Aware of our Karma and our Held Emotions.
  • South Node Initiates asteroid Atropos 21 January – The Urge to End our Karma gets Overwhelming.

These Cycles span one to four years.  Once an Initiation occurs, the New Energy slowly becomes less Obvious, as it gets busy Underground, Transforming the Roots of the Issues that the Cycle Relates to.  Then at the Waxing Square, the New Energy Emerges and begins to Actively Alter our everyday Reality and our Perception of same.  So the approximately one-year Mercury-South Node Cycle will take several months to bloom.  The other two Cycles will take around four years to complete, so they’ll be moving out of the basement after the first year or so.

All three of these Cycles Initiate at 27 Capricorn, “A violent storm in a canyon filled with expensive homes.”  In other words, our Biggest Investments in our Karmic Status Quo are likely to get battered.  In the middle of this, on 20 January (9pm PST), the Full Moon Western-Hemisphere Total Lunar Eclipse takes place nearby (1 Leo-Aquarius), on dwarf planet Varuna (Life Force).  So it will definitely be Invigorating, either because we’re so Excited about how we’re going to Replace our Karma, or because we’ll be so busy trying to keep our Olde Investments standing.

Then on 23 January, as we indicated earlier (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/12/21/consciousness-expansion/), asteroid Juno (the Edges of Consciousness) crosses the Fixed Star Capulus (at 25 Taurus), which is the Sword of Perseus, with which he just beheaded Medusa.  This Constellation Celebrates the Birth of the Patriarchy, as its Hero Perseus-with-the-Big-Sword defeats that Horrible Magical Magnetic Feminine Power that so Terrorizes the Boys (related to our Forbidden Genius, perhaps?).

Wow IX

December 10, 2018

The other Yin Gate in the Chiron-Station chart centers on the Opposition between Mercury (Awareness) and Sedna-Lachesis (Reframing Fear).  This is important for many of us because Sedna is Stationary soon (first week of February) at 27 Taurus.  The Star Algol, generally considered the most malign of Stars, sits at 27 Taurus, so a casual reading would likely warn of Catastrophe – and given the state of Humanity’s Relationship to its Home Planet, Catastrophe wouldn’t be a big surprise.

Catastrophe for the Patriarchy, that is.  Algol symbolizes Female Power, Anger, and Sexuality.  Lachesis is about scheduling Timelines, and in the context of Consciousness (Awareness), it represents Choosing to End a Self-Sabotaging Timeline.  This obsolete Timeline could be about Women Living in Fear and subjugation.

The Paradox is that we don’t really Believe that we have the Power to just End our Timelines unilaterally.  As long we perceive ourselves as Victims or potential Victims of large-scale processes and events such as Global Warming or rising Fascism, and we understandably don’t believe we can turn those around by ourselves, we’re stuck.  What we don’t Realize is that we do have the Power to Change how these Patterns impact us Personally – by PIAVAing just that.

See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/ if you don’t grok PIAVAing.

We might feel Selfish to Protect ourself from global Bummers from which many others Suffer greatly.  But the more people refuse to accept those Patterns as “just the way it is,” the faster the Global Energy will Change.  Our Self-Protection is one of the Strongest ways we have to End the Timelines.  And just because we are Protected, doesn’t mean we can’t take Actions to facilitate Ending the Patterns on the Global scale.

We’ve said before that Passion and Neutrality are not mutually exclusive, though they appear to be just that to the Victim Ego.  In fact, when we Act from Neutrality we can be much more Effective than when we Act purely from unbridled Passion.  That may be the primary Paradox that we’re Learning here.

This second Yin Gate is about Awareness that Timelines of Fear can be Ended Consciously.  If we Fear what we don’t Understand, and if we don’t Believe we can Change what we don’t Understand – both common characteristics of the Dualistic mind – then we have no Power over Fear.  But we have demonstrated to ourselves (or can do so right now if we so choose) that…

  • Fear + Breathing = Excitement
  • Fear + Kegels = Power
  • Fear + Vision = Equanimity

…and other similar equations that Convert Fear to Power.  We wnat to be very familiar, even Habitual, with these Practices before February.

Hope You’re Rested

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Start now doing what? 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“The Inner Planes Creates the Earth

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

I’ll let Natalie lead you from here…

Gauntlet VI – Mercury

April 14, 2018

The Direct Station of Mercury is fairly straightforward…

It wouldn’t hurt us to interpret Mercury as Insight, if we can Differentiate In-sight from Anal-ysis.  It’s tempting, to those of us with proclivities or training or Programming to be “left-brained,” to think that Analysis is a critical Skill, but when we look at it closely we find that Observation is the heart of it; the rest is Conclusion, which is the equivalent of gassing and pinning the Butterfly, Ossifying the World.

The Star of the show is (Insight into) Letting Go of Impediments to Trusting our Ability to Manifest what we Need (Atropos/Endings-Eurydike/Trust-Makemake/Manifestation Stellium), even if/as the World as we know it falls apart. 

A note on Interpretation – we could certainly Interpret Atropos-Eurydike-Makemake as Ending our Trust in (our Ability to) Manifest rather than Ending Impediments to same.  But why would we want to?  I suppose we could wish that sort of curse on our Competition, but that would be so Patriarchal, wouldn’t it.

In this context we’re Challenged to Master (T-Square) carving Survival-Sabotaging Unconscious Beliefs out of the collection of Perception-Inhibiting Blinders that Limit our Insights (Vesta-Quaoar).  If you Notice the light purple lines, the “Quintangle” that we spoke of at the end of Gauntlet III remains in effect; Learning to Differentiate Survival-Limiting Beliefs is a core part of our April curriculum.

Detoxing our Survival-Manifestation machine is aided by Respect for All Things (Hopi Trine Bridge across the T-Square); hint: ferret out your Judgments – they’re Mirrors for your Self-Sabotaging Beliefs.  Intrusive Memories will also play a role, but a more subtle one, as we’ll have to PIAVA how they’re Related to the price of Insight in Loompaland (2007 OR10 Quincunx Bridge).  Like that heavy flushback I had this morning – “I Wonder how that’s Related to Beliefs that Limit my Ability to Manifest Survival.”

There’s a Challenge of some sort between Respect for All Things and the kinds of Flashbacks we’re likely to Encounter (Waning Square from asteroid Hopi to dwarf planet OR10).  The Hopi-OR10 Cycle is about excavating the Memories that caused us to Ossify a Judgment into our Belief Collection.  I almost wrote “Belief System,” but there’s nothing Systematic about our Beliefs, they’re really more of a motley collection.

The current six-year Hopi-OR10 Cycle began in March 2014 at 3 of Pisces, “Petrified tree trunks lie broken on desert sand.”  How appropriate.  At the Waning Square our Assignment is to Let Go of all the Work we’ve been doing for the last four years to promote Respect for Disparity.  Not that either Respect or Disparity will be declining, it’s just that the methodology we’ve been using to promote them is obsolete, and it’s time for us to Let the whole Issue Go so the Work we’ve done can Integrate with the rest of Reality. 

In other words it’s time to Change the Subject around our Memories of Discrimination.  For now, que sera, seraI wouldn’t regard it as an accident that Letting Go of Memories of Discrimination is Lit Up at the same time as the Edgy Love and Denial Timing issues that we discussed in Gauntlet V.  One they’ve served as Insights into our Impediments to Manifesting Survival, they need to be Let Go.  We don’t need any of the lingering grudges that we could easily Create around them.

Some Insights that Dan Scranton’s Arcturian friends suggest for us…

http://danielscranton.com/accessing-fifth-dimensional-abilities-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

You have awakened within you the abilities that are associated with the fifth dimension, but you do not know how to access them yet.  It is like buying a new technological gadget that you’ve never seen before and not having any instructions available to you.  So as you feel for the abilities within you, please recognize that your acknowledgement of them is the first step in gaining full access.

“You won’t be able access these abilities by lamenting the fact that you haven’t accessed them yet.  That is counterproductive.  So what you want to do is focus.  You want to focus on how these fifth dimensional abilities feel as you contemplate them.  We are talking about telekinesis, telepathy, and teleportation, specifically.  There are others as well that you will become aware of as you continue on in your journeys.

“Feel for the power that is within you.  Feel for it vibrationally.  Do not wait until you have full access to these abilities before you feel how powerful you are.  Many of you have already taken sneak peeks at these abilities.  You know that at times you access them, if only for an instant.  You also know that you are becoming your higher selves, and with that means greater access to so much more than these abilities.

“We recommend that you don’t get fixated on them or on any one of them.  Instead we want you to continue to feel for your power and feel for the consciousness and the vibration of your higher self.  Your higher self has the instruction manual.  When you act, speak, and think as your higher self would, you bring yourself into harmony with that which you most desire.  And in so doing, you help others gain access to their higher self and to their fifth dimensional abilities.

You are about to have a lot more fun than you’ve been having.”

It’s PIAVA that’s the gateway to these Abilities.

Gauntlet V – Revelation New Moon

April 14, 2018

I must be Denying some element of Truth, because it’s been kind of a hard day for me.  Probably my sugar Addiction.  As for the Strong elements of the Truth/Veritas-Stationary chart…

  • Choosing to Expose our Essence (Lachesis-Eris-Sun) probably wins this lottery, as it’s a corner of both the Grand Cross (red square and cross) and the Grand Trine (blue Triangle)

There’s an additional vote for this Stellium (group of planets) being the Strong point of the Veritas Station chart – tomorrow’s New Moon (7pm PDT 15 April) is in the same place, extending the impact of the Station chart for another several weeks. 

Dwarf planet Eris is all about Revealing what’s been Denied, often with Ego-Death consequences – hence Eris’s Reputation for Dischord among the Stuck-in-the-Mud set.  And Lachesis is about Measuring the length of a Timeline.  When we’re dealing with Consciousness – aka Choice – then, it’s about Choosing to prematurely End or posthumously Extend a Timeline (which is a temporary or characteristic theme in a Lifetime) relative to its “Fated” Expiration.

The new Lachesis-Eris Cycle began at 2pm PDT today, 14 April, at 24 Aries, “Blown inward by the wind, the curtains of an open window take the shape of a cornucopia.”  Remember that Denial is a Healthy Response to Ego-breakthroughs that we aren’t ready to deal with yet.  Trying to break an Ego prematurely usually leads to backlash and Ego entrenchment.  Look at what happens when you try to break someone else’s Ego with insults – you trigger the other person’s Ego Defenses.  The five-year Lachesis-Eris Cycle is about being Able to Choose if, when, and How to make significant Changes to our Ego.

So then, do I Choose to End my sugar Addiction?  Well, it’s not that Easy to squelch an Addiction, is it.  But Notice that it is in my Consciousness, which is one of the first steps.  So I can PIAVA to end or modify it to make it Life-Affirming, if it isn’t already – Self-Love/Sappho is Merged with Edges of Consciousness/Juno after all. 

Maybe I’ll have an All Organic Go Raw Sprouted Pumpkin Seed Bar with 5g of sugar instead of a Cascadian Farm Organic Honey Roasted Nut Protein Chewy Bar with 10g.  I know, they’re both Prefab Food, but I just had a big bowl of homemade Soup of Wildcrafted Fresh Nettles, organic Shiitakes, organic Farmers-Market Rhubarb, organic Onion, organic Bone Broth, and homegrown Garlic, Oregano, and Thyme, so I may survive.

Speaking of which…

  • Loving the Edges of our Consciousness as alternative to Ego Death (Sappho-Juno) also heads a Diamond Star

Now this one could be a Life-Changer if we take advantage of it.  A Diamond Star is an Emphatic (Finger of God) Challenge to Mastery (T-Square) made Easy by Grace (the Trine-Sextile Lace connecting the bases of the T-Square and Yod).  What if we broke the Karmic Dread-Reaction that most of have to Ego Death, and replaced it with a surge of Excitement and Love about the Liberation from Limitation that we’re about to Receive!  That would definitely be Life-Changing.

The 17-year Sappho-Juno Cycle began on 13 March at 9 Pisces, “A jockey spurs his horse, intent on outdistancing his rivals.”  Whoa, Competitive Love!  Well, if we’re Competing with ourself to see if we can Embrace the next Ego Death better than we Embraced the last one, that’s probably a fine use of Competition, which is after all a normal Huper Urge, even if we sneer at it as the Fundament of the Patriarchy.  And there’s no reason Competition can’t be Friendly, and even coexist with Collaboration.

The apparent Contradistinction that Powers the Challenge to Mastering such Edgy Self-Love involves our Forbidden Genius (Ixion) and our Unlimited Potential (dwarf planet Chaos), with our Forbidden Genius Channeling (Conjunct) the Galactic Center.  We could easily interpret this as Galactic HQ giving us orders to Open Up our Forbidden Genius.  The Grace is provided by Easy Relationships between Unlimited Potential, Stationary Truth/Veritas, Rebirth/Haumea, and Hidden Genius.

  • New Beginnings (Klotho) are Important because they head a Diamond Star (T-Square and Yod pointing to same planet)

This one is tightly Integrated with the previous two Configurations, as the base of the New Beginnings Challenge to Mastery involves Rebirth/Haumea and Choosing to Expose our Essence (Lachesis-Eris-New Moon), and the Lace of Grace involves Unlimited Potential/Chaos and Truth/Stationary Veritas.

The Unx Angle (the short green lines) reflects the Twelfth Harmonic, Pattern-Breaking.  They’re drawn lightly in the Truth-Station chart in the previous post, but they’re an important key to our success as Self-Transformation, since without them we Change not at all.  They connect Loving our Edges (Sappho-Juno) with Choosing Insights (Lachesis-Eris-New Moon), Embracing Fear as Power (Sedna and Kegels), Unlimited Potential (Chaos), and Truth Squared (Aletheia and Stationary Veritas).

Finally, we neglected to include what might be the most immediate Challenge of this Truth Station, the Challenge between Truth/Veritas and Embracing Fear as Power/Sedna.  If you’re having trouble seeing Fear as Power, look at what it does to the Body – it can give you extraordinary Powers of Flight, Fight, or Freeze that arise directly from the Unconscious, without your Volition.  Have you Experienced the equation “Fear Plus Breathing Equals Excitement”?  And next time you’re watching a Scary movie, try Fear Plus Kegels to see how they Change your Experience of your Body and your Surroundings.

This is the Waxing Square in the six-year Veritas-Sedna Cycle that began in June 2016 at 26 Taurus, “A Spanish gallant serenades his beloved,” which is to say, at least during this Cycle, Fear Enchants Truth.  Certainly being Honest with ourself about our Fears (which after all are highly correlated with our Held Emotions) is a requirement for Authenticity and Yintegrity and all things Fifth-Dimensional.

At the Waxing Square, the Energy of a Cycle Emerges from Underground and enters the Mainstream.  Veritas, now moving forward again, is working toward it’s third Waxing Square to Sedna; the first occurred mid-October 2017 (when the Emergence from the Unconscious of a “new” Fear may have Shocked us), the second late March 2018 (when we would have Learned more about this new-to-our-Ego Fear), and this third one will Complete 13 May.  At this third event we’re scheduled to gain Confidence in our command of the Truth about our Fears.
