For these events we’d best choose one of the highest vibrations we can find. One of those would be Cerussite, Lead Carbonate – hard to imagine how a combination of Lead and Carbon could be almost transparent, till we remember that Matter is Illusion and in the “atom” model almost all “empty” space. Which just illustrates how woefully inadequate the Material Perspective is, relative to the Energy Perspective. In this picture a necklace of Cicada-like Cerussite Crystals embrace, like a Chorus of Angels, a block of white blady Barite (Barium Sulfate, symbolizing the Heaviness of Matter) dusted with tiny Crystals of Hematite (Iron Oxide, symbolizing Blood, or Life). The Cicada symbolizes being “in it” for the long term.
Not to lose sight of the Big Picture, we’re looking at a.Karma (asteroid Karma) because…
It’s dancing with Chiron, which is Initiating Vesta on 13 May and being Opposed by Lilith (complete 6 June), both of which are T-Squaring dp.Chaos (dwarf planet Chaos), which symbolizes Unlimited Potential rather than Disorder. The Moon blesses the Chiron-Vesta Initiation, crossing them a few hours before their consummation. Elizabeth points out the a couple of other asteroids – Ask and Amor – are also clamoring to get in on the party, each about to be Initiated by Chiron. a.Karma was Initiated 1 May, a.Ask will get Shaktipat 15 May, and a.Amor 19 May (while the Moon is on dp.Chaos).
So in addition to Karma, we can look forward to not just Magnetism (Feminine Manifestation processes or PIAVA, Ask being one of the A’s in PIAVA), but also Desire and Relationship (Amor) moving from Despair or Discouragement to Miracles, since that’s what Chiron does for a Living.
It would be appropriate to ask here, aren’t we confusing the map with the territory, as Ralph Metzner once phrased it? The answer is Yes, quite purposefully, as one of our Limiting Beliefs is that the Unconscious perceives no difference between our Symbols and their Referents. That’s why they work as Symbols. Or maybe that’s an Unlimiting Belief – who can say?
But meanwhile, a reader writes,
“This Vesta-Chiron etc. seems powerful out of proportion, I find – or is there something else going on? Do you really feel it’s this big? I’ve been spending a lot of time Tapping!”
To which we replied,
“Yes. There is no “Reality,” only Belief – as amply demonstrated by the Placebo Effect that confounds the World’s best statisticians and manipulators of biochemistry. So yes, going from Beliefs based on Despair to Beliefs based on Miracles is indeed one of the larger Life Changes we can ever experience. Remember, the Greeks toasted Hestia/Vesta before they toasted Zeus, and toasted Her again after they toasted Zeus. She was the Hearth – Food, Survival, Home, not-Abandonment, everything of utmost importance and meaning.”
Just to remind, the mechanism Chiron uses – via our intervention – to make this alchemical Transformation, is Empathy. By Empathizing with Despair, we shift from being IN Despair to being IN Compassion, and that shift all by itself is enough to Create Miracles.
Miracles happen because Limiting Beliefs dissolve. As Einstein averred, we cannot solve a problem by using the same thinking that postulated the problem. We need a new Perspective. The most Powerful Perspective there is, is Belief, because Belief is all-encompassing. We aren’t talking about what you think you Believe, or what you were taught to think you Believe, we’re talking about what you really Believe, as demonstrated by what you Manifest in your Life.
But that’s not all…
The whole 21-Pisces Chiron-plus Dance occurs Biquintile to the 16 May Initiation by Jupiter of Juno.
Which means that this is a huge Learning Opportunity around Expanding our Consciousness, and for many of us, Consciousness is more important than even Shopping. We Manifest what we Believe, and we don’t have direct access to, or influence over, Beliefs that are Unconscious. While it’s a little more complicated than simply Witnessing them (that’s Step One), bringing our Limiting Beliefs up into Consciousness is mandatory if we want to Liberate ourselves from their need to Sabotage us. They Sabotage us because they’re shouting at us to Pay Attention!! so they can be Liberated. Our Limiting Beliefs are Entities that we have in chains in our dungeon, and they want out!
The 21-Pisces business is about “Under the watchful and kind eye of a Chinese servant, a child fondles a little white lamb,” which is a loaded metaphor if there ever was one!
How does this relate to the ascendancy of China on the World Stage, for example? Vesta-Chiron is a four-year Cycle, easily long enough for China to move into World Suzerainty, in spite of Obama’s best efforts to sell the rest of the World to the Multinationals before the Empire collapses. While the rest of the World is run by lawyers and economists and psychopaths, China is run by engineers. That’s a radically different Worldview, and one through which we might all be far better off. Pluto in Capricorn means “Just Fix It” after all, and Pluto symbolizes the Zeitgeist.
The subsequent Vesta-Chiron Cycle begins at 3 Aries in April 2019, “The cameo profile of a person, suggesting the shape of their country.“
In other words, by the end of this decade our Beliefs Manifest directly in our Culture, so the more we purge them of Despair now, the better will be our Future.
It’s too big a topic to drop into now, but in early August of this year Jupiter reaches its Waning Square with Saturn. This is the Jupiter-Saturn Cycle that corresponded with the “Dot-Com Crash” of 2000, at 23 Taurus, “A jewelry shop filled with valuable gems.” Because of the longer-term relationship between Jupiter and Saturn…
The years 2000-2020 will see the Industrial Revolution picked apart, to choose those parts of it that “we” want to keep and those parts we want to Abandon, before two centuries of the Digital Revolution begin. So far it’s clear that one of the defining elements of the Digital Revolution may (it’s not Co-Created yet) be the Abandonment of the Individual. One of my own Limiting Beliefs is that you cannot rise to the top of the stack without stepping on those “below” you. Ronnie Reagan and Margie Thatcher took Power in 1980, just as the 20-year Digital Revolution Preview began. They both epitomize the Liberation of the Individual to step on whomever they want. So far, Ruthlessness appears to be one of the most sterling qualities of the Industrial Revolution that “we” as a species choose to keep.
Remind us later to look into the role of dp.Ixion in this.
In other words, the next five year is a critical period in defining the Edges of the next two centuries.
The Digital Revolution is 200 years of Jupiter-Saturn Conjunctions in Air Signs, just as the Industrial Revolution was two centuries of Jupiter-Saturn Conjunctions in Earth Signs. We’re dropping into the Void phase of the last Earth Jupiter-Saturn Cycle, between the Waning Square and the Conjunction. Jupiter-Saturn is about the Social and Economic Order, and the Void phase is about deconstruction.
So it’s not just the decade, but the next 200 years that are being cast into concrete during this event, and our Beliefs and Consciousness are the forms that the concrete will be poured into. Your own Beliefs and Consciousness could be the final mote that tips the Balance.
Oh, and by the way, Mercury turns Retrograde from 18 May through 11 June. It Retrogrades across 5-14 degrees of Gemini (which Mercury has been introducing since 4 May), which is the Leo through Scorpio Duads of Gemini. In this phase of Gemini we’ve tried out a new group of Ideas (possibly Ideas around how our new Yintegrity will impact our Relationships) and are in the process of taking them apart to see how they can be improved. We test a revised version here, debrief it, and set up a second revision. We can think of it as Beta 2.1 and 2.2 of our Ideas around how to exercise Yintegrity in our Relationships.
Then, on May 21-25, Venus crosses Pluto and Squares Uranus, adding another layer of finesse to our Yintegrity.
The Moon crosses Lilith and Opposes our Chiron Stellium on May 25-26, then completes the Grand Cross on June 2.
