Chiron-Vesta and a.Karma

May 11, 2015

ceru5930bpFor 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.

Asteroid Karma Chapter One

May 10, 2015

catmaWe’ve looked up the “Discovery” (or rather, “coming into human Consciousness” – it was there all along) date for asteroid Karma (“a.Karma” to distinguish it from the concept of Karma), and it’s quite revealing.  It was the 3,811th asteroid recognized (there are currently over a million), on October 13, 1953.  It was not a Friday, a fact worthy of celebration.

a.Karma, recall, was recently Initiated by Chiron, at 21 Pisces, “Under the watchful and kind eye of a Chinese servant, a child fondles a little white lamb.”  For comparison, the four-year Cycle we’ve just completed was Initiated at 2 Pisces, “A squirrel hiding from hunters.”  Chiron is currently lit up by its impending Initiation of Vesta (Beliefs), its Opposition to Lilith (Yindependence), and a T-Square to the dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential, not Disorder).

An a.Karma-Chiron Cycle would be about Miraculous release from self-sabotaging Patterns, the Miracles brought about by Empathizing with our own Victimhood.  The parts of our True Self that we’ve been hiding because we expected condemnation, need no longer be hidden.  Children Explore.  We should all be so Open.  As Children we were condemned for Exploring beyond the Limiting Beliefs of our older caretakers or taskmasters.  Time to be Loving with our Inner Tykes in all such situations.

At it’s “Discovery” a.Karma was in 26 Aries, “A person possessed of more gifts than they can hold,” betraying the fact that…

Our Held Emotions (the Emotions that we Refuse to Feel, often to the point that we don’t even know it) hide Skills that are truly frightening in their Power.  Our Rage that would destroy Others, for instance, or our Vulnerability that could destroy our Self-Image.

a.Karma was also closely Conjunct dwarf planet Sedna (wouldn’t you know it!), which symbolizes Acts performed out of Fear…

Reread that last paragraph about Held Emotions, but multiply by 100.  Our rage that would destroy our own Children, for instance, or our Vulnerability that could result in our own Death.

Which Conjunction T-Squared the Nodes…

So yes, we can consider Karma and a.Karma to have the same impact – though a.Karma might be the stronger of the two!

And which completed a Grand Cross by Opposing a Saturn-Neptune Conjunction…

So much for Clear Understanding of all this!  Just when we think we’ve got a handle on The Most Important Thing, massive Confusion takes over!  And just when we start to get in touch with the Crux of the issue in Meditation, our need to Define screws it up! 

Meanwhile, Uranus Conjoined the South Node…

To locate our True Self or Yintegrity we’ll need to face down those Held Emotions and Love them into submission.

Which in turn were Conjunct the dwarf planet Makemake…

What we can Manifest once we do that will be shocking.  If there’s anything you’re having difficult Manifesting, just start Exploring any Emotion you distrust or dislike or don’t embrace wholeheartedly.  The grammar isn’t the best, but here’s a list for you – can you Embrace them all?

http://www.the-emotions.com/list-of-emotions.html

Any Emotion on the list that you don’t like, that’s the Door to Heaven for you.  Sure, there’s a bed of nails and a hot coal walk between here and there, but sheesh, they’re just Feelings!  Keep reminding yourself of that.

Nothing to sneeze at here – a Grand Cross with

  • Karma Conjunct Sedna
  • Saturn Conjunct Neptune
  • South Node Conjunct Uranus and Makemake
  • North Node

at the corners.  Well, could be worse.

Grand Crosses are a lot easier than T-Squares, because a Grand Cross is Balanced.  To do a T-Square you have to provide the missing Energy yourself, the Energy residing in the Vacancy that would complete the Grand Cross.  Not that it’s a picnic – with a Grand Cross there are so many disturbances that you’re always running from one emergency to the next, so you never have time to fret about it.  Which is the boon, since the essence of a T-Square is fretting about how you don’t measure up to your Perfect Picture.  A Grand Cross is four T-Squares, so you have too many Perfect Pictures to fret over.  Not measuring up?  BFD.

So the asteroid Karma keeps us very busy, which is actually a good thing.  Anything else positive about it?

The Grand Cross is Cardinal, in 23-29 degrees.  So the overall Energy is Creative.  The third Decanate of the Cardinal Signs is the Mutable Signs.  So Karma is not about The Way Out is ThroughKarma – at least as seen through the lens of a.Karma – is about The Way Out is Letting Go.  Our Karma doesn’t hold us, we hold itKarma is Inertia – it’s our Comfort Zone, it’s how we’ve always done things, it’s what we do.  So on the deepest level imaginable, all we need to do, is to do something different that we otherwise would have.  As a friend used to say, Don’t get even, get odd.  Are you brave enough to be unpredictable?

And now that you mention it, both Jupiter and a Conjunction between Pluto and the dwarf planet Haumea make a Trine-Sextile Truss Bridge across the Opposition between a.Karma-Sedna and Saturn-Neptune, with Pluto-Haumea Trine to a.Karma-Sedna and Jupiter Sextile to it; and Pluto-Haumea Sextile to Saturn-Neptune and Trine to a.Karma-Sedna.  The positions of the Trines and Sextiles turn out to be important, because while the Trines provide Dumb-Luck Grace, the Sextiles Ask us to take the first Step.

One planet or Conjunction can make a Trine-Sextile Bridge across an Opposition.  When two planets do so, and the two Sextile one another, the Configuration formed resemble Trusses.

So we’re actually Compelled to be Reborn through Letting Go of our Karma.  And we can do it more easily if we take an Active step toward Expansion – which means Consciously relaxing Judgment.

Which is particularly interesting to me, because I’ve always been curious about whether some folks are “Jungian” (driven toward Wholeness and Integration with the Unconscious, as Jung postulated), others are “Freudian” (driven by Demons in the Subconscious, as Freud postulated), and yet others are driven by other Energies that are reflected in the other major schools of psychology.  I would expect all schools to be useful – Both/And, after all – but are some more useful for some people?  I basically do Jungian astrology, but there are many folks for whom my readings don’t make much sense.  Of course we all grew up with different idioms and metaphors, so language has a great impact.

So I’ve always wondered whether the position of, or planetary relationships to, the Nodes may be influential.  But if a.Karma Gracefully Compels us to Rebirth through Embracing our Karma and our Fears, that would be another indication; folks with a prominent a.Karma in their natality could be prone to the Jungian Perspective.

Now, quiz time.  When you have a Trine-Sextile Truss Bridge across an Opposition that has a T-Square on the other side (we need a picture, but alas, my camera stopped talking to my computer for some reason), what is the Configuration?  A Diamond Star!  (See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/configurations/diamond-star/ for pictures.)  Diamond Stars are very auspicious, as they make the otherwise Challenging T-Square Graceful.  The two planets in the Truss also form the base of a Finger of God pointing at the planet at the tip of the T-Square – in this case, Jupiter and Haumea-Pluto pointing to the North Node.

So these Active Steps of Expanding beyond Judgment, and of Recognizing Confusion as the first stage of Growth and Rebirth, Liberate us to meet our Mission and Embrace our Deepest Desires.  How?  Through Surrendering Control and courting Perpetual Curiosity.

The Finger of God also makes the North Node the overall Focus of the Grand Cross…

Informing us that Karma  – at least as seen through the lens of a.Karma – isn’t about Limitation, it’s about Liberation!

 Well, we didn’t really expect a.Karma to have a simple natality, did we.  And of course we’re just beginning.  If we shift our Orb or Sensitivity a bit, we find an almost-Grand Sextile, granting considerable Magical status to the Vacancy.  I haven’t calculated it yet, but this Vacancy is very close to the position of the current Chiron-Karma Initiation – as a friend says, you can’t make this stuff up!  And depending on the Orb we choose, we have at least one more Grand Cross and an additional T-Square to consider, not to mention at least one fascinating Conjunction.  So, more to follow!

konig5022bp Here’s a Crystal that’s perfect for this Full Moon – Konigsbergite (literally, mineral from the King’s Town), aka Amalgam.  A combination of Silver and Mercury, the same kind the Dental Industry still wants to stuff in your teeth so you can be gradually poisoned, every day, by the Mercury.  Without Linear Time, you can turn Cause and Effect around.  It’s not then that a constant low dose of Mercury leads eventually to Dementia.  It’s that when we “lose our mind” (as the Buddhists put it) in Multi-Dimensia, now we have a rational excuse!  In the 60s we didn’t drop acid to get stoned, we were stoned by the Saturn-Chiron-Uranus-Pluto fireworks and we dropped acid so we could make sense of it all!  In Einstein’s mathematics there is nothing that requires Time to flow in just one direction.

Aside from the Main-Effect Juno-Jupiter T-Square, Dual-Tricolor Pluto Bridge, and a.Karma-Chiron Biquintile, what else does the Full Moon chart want to tell us?

The a.Karma-Chiron Conjunction is the focus of a second T-Square, formed on a base of the Opposition between Venus and Ixion-Pholus.

This would likely set up a contest between our Self-Love and our Self-Blame.  The combination of the dwarf planet Ixion and the Centaur Pholus could set up any number of personal-history and Karmic flushbacks of situations where…

  • We Acted without considering consequences, and we still regret it
  • We were Blamed for something that really wasn’t our fault
  • We did our Best but were punished anyway
  • We were Deceived into Acting against our own interests
  • We were Deceived into Acting in regretful ways against Others
  • We were accused of or punished for something we didn’t even do
  • We were the Victim of Abuse and Blamed for it
  • Our Vulnerability was Exploited and we have not Forgiven
  • We were Betrayed by those who were supposed to Support us
  • We were sold out by folks who Abandoned their Commitments
  • We were a Victim of Human Trafficking

We could even have been a barnyard Animal who pictured ourself as a pet, and then was killed and eaten.  Beyond the Veil of Linear Time, these Lifetimes are still going on.  Flushbacks is a good word for it.  As we Re-Experience these adventures, if we do, it would be good to push the lever and Flush them.  It won’t relieve the Pain, but it’ll help us stay a little detached from the Energy, increasing the odds that we can be the Witness.

On the other side of this Equation is our Self-Love.  Our treasure-trove of stored-up Traumas is like an iceberg, with only the tip reaching up into Consciousness, and the balance lurking in the Unconscious where it’s reformulated as the Limiting Beliefs that hold us back.  While our Self-Love has the advantage of being Conscious – we can hope at any rate – the disadvantage is that while the Unconscious is vast, Consciousness of often a speck floating on that vast Sea, and often without its bearings.  But, being Conscious, we do have the Power of Intention and all of the other PIAVAFs to bring to the party.  It’s no coincidence that the Inspiring Women Summit is going on as we speak…

http://2015.inspiringwomensummit.com/program

That’s just the base of the T-Square.  The focus is on asteroid Karma and Chiron.  So there’s an excellent chance that whatever flushbacks we encounter will not have their Roots in the Present Moment.  Often just setting our own Roots into the Present Moment – Grounding ourself, or imagining a steel cable extending from the base of our Spine to the center of the Earth – is enough to provide the Separation we need to be the Empathetic Witness.  These Experiences are no fun, and Experiencing them Alone makes it worse.  When we’re the Loving Present-Moment Witness to our non-Present-Moment Traumas, we’re no longer Alone.  I know, outside of Linear Time it’s all Present Moment, but when we say “Present Moment” what we mean is “Present Moment Present Place.”

Chiron, remember, is Discouragement/Despair and Miracles, and the worst kind of Despair is Unconscious Despair, which happens when we don’t even consider the possibility that there are alternatives, because our Limiting Beliefs overshadow all.  But it’s Empathy that Heals.  So it doesn’t matter what’s going on for you.  Witnessing whatever that is, and talking back to yourself as you would to a lost child, shifts the Frequency into the Present Moment.  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really feeling overwhelmed here, aren’t you.  Let me hold you for a moment.” 

It’s difficult to imagine that this is all that needs to be done – and it may need to be done many times, as we slip in and out of our Regressions.  We’ll be lost in the Trauma for a while, then something – the phone ringing, the color of the wallpaper, a friend’s kind word, or simply our own cycles and rhythms, will pop us back to the surface for a moment.  That’s the moment to Act with Empathy.  Sooner or later you’ll start to slip back into the Trauma and find that it’s loosening its grip.  When it leaves you’ll feel Lost for a while, as your Experience of “Normal” is no longer.  That happens whenever there is a shift in the Unconscious.  Learn to Celebrate that feeling of being Lost.  It means your Consciousness has Expanded and you haven’t re-established your bearings yet.  The more you can leave this state be what it is, the less you’ll reinvent your former cage.

There’s a bit more, and it’s quite full of Potential, but we’ll save it for Karma IV.

Karma II and the Full Moon

May 1, 2015

NoorNoor (Light) … clarity or the illumination of self by the inner light… a painting by Mahasweta, http://creationsfromstillness.com/

Reader Mahasweta tells us…

“Nice post!  Here is how I have described Karma to many…  Karma is cause and effects…  it is a pattern we are going to go through again and again (abandonment, jealousy, etc.) and will continue for the rest of our life as this is what we are born to see through in this lifetime.  The cause we have no control over, it a life pattern we are born into.  The effects, that, we have control over.  How we react every time the cause is presented to us in our lives is what effects are about, that is what the pattern is and we can choose to see through this and go beyond it… and once we have  gone beyond it (where there is no reaction to the cause), we have let go of that Karma.  The cause may repeat, but when the conditioned reaction is not there, the effects are gone… and Karma needs both sides, cause and effects, to be a thing.”

Another reader asks…

How about Sedna, which you have said represents self-sabotage or actions taken out of fear?  How would you distinguish Sedna from the South Node and asteroid Karma?

I guess I don’t make much of a distinction between interpretation of the South Node and of asteroid Karma – namely, recurring circumstances (cause in Mahasweta’s terms) to which we have a significant Emotional Reaction (effects), usually to one extent or another repressed.  If they aren’t repressed, and we’re completely a Victim to our Emotions for one reason or another, then a treadmill we’re on.  If they are repressed, then we’re simply Unconscious of the connection between cause and effect and a Victim of our Karma.  Now, if to some degree they aren’t repressed, and we understand that we have the option of detaching our Identity from our Emotions and Witnessing them from the outside – well, denn können wir erlösen!  Better than immer Strebend any day!

Now Sedna I imagine to be more about Actions taken out of Fear.  Those may or may not be Karmic.  If I have a Pattern of, for instance, Acting Exploitatively because of Scarcity, I might want to ask how my natal Sedna is related to my natal Nodes and to asteroid Karma.  And to asteroid Fortuna.  There are millions of asteroids, so trying to keep track of their impact is not a reasonable proposition.  However, asteroids do have impact on us, and when one catches your Attention for one reason or another, it’s a good idea to take it seriously.  For instance, another reader writes, a few days back…

“Really feeling something yukky today…could it be the Moon Opposing asteroid Karma and Chiron?  As far as I can tell, Chiron Initiates asteroid Karma April 30 at 21 Pisces.”

Pisces 21 is “Under the watchful and kind eye of a Chinese servant, a girl fondles a little white lamb: Growth in Consciousness via its earliest tactile awareness.”  Quite an interesting Symbol.  I don’t know whether the word fondle had sexual overtones in the mid-1920s when Elsie Channeled these Symbols.  Given the nature of the 20s, I wouldn’t be surprised.  Either way, the connotation is there now, which could imply that our Karmic sexual issues could arise.  From a mid-Scorpio Full Moon, that wouldn’t be at all surprising.

It turns out that asteroid Karma (let’s call it a.Karma for short) plays an important role in the May 3 (9pm PDT, http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt21.htm) Full Moon.  

The Main Effect of the Full Moon is that it forms the base of a T-Square focused on the impending Juno-Jupiter Conjunction.  Jupiter Initiates Juno on May 16 at 15 Leo, “A pageant, with its spectacular floats, moves along a street crowded with cheering people.

So the primary impact of the Full Moon will be Expansion of Consciousness, as will become more clear at the mid-May New Moon.  When novel Experiences confront us over the next few weeks, it would behoove to be Conscious of any Judgment that arises around them, and attempt to view them without Judgment.

The Full Moon is Bridged by Pluto, which the Sun Trines.  This creates a Major Tricolor of Sun Square Juno-Jupiter Quincunx Pluto Trine Sun, and a Minor Tricolor of Moon Square Juno-Jupiter Quincunx Pluto Sextile Moon……

When any Experience Challenges our Identity here, we can unlock Grace by Wondering (seeking Insight, not analysis) what it is we must do.  When an Experience Challenges our Emotions during the first half of May, we can Wonder what Action we might take to quell the Disturbance in the Force.  So far we haven’t encountered Karma.

Though the Full Moon is Octile to the Nodes…

Though the Universe does ask for an “Adjustment” or Rebalancing of our trajectory in Life.

More noteworthy: Juno-Jupiter Biquintiles a.Karma-Chiron…

So the big theme of the next two to six weeks is Expansion of our Consciousness through Learning about how we’re bummed out by recurring causes that aren’t actually Present-Moment, but to which we React as if they are Present-Moment.  If our Reactions are Emotional, that’s great; to achieve Liberation we need only step aside and Witness the Emotions. 

A more typical Reaction to Karmic repetitions, however – since the Emotions are usually to some degree repressed – is to let the mind create any number of links between the cause and whatever Demons we’ve come to believe habitually Victimize us.  So our assignment is to be watchful for Anxiety or Worry, or any desire to intellectualize our Experience.  We need to meet it with Curiosity.  “Oh, there’s that tendency to want to understand what’s going on so I can protect myself from it.  Well, what if I just didn’t worry about it.”  Of course we’ll need to repeat this practice moment to moment, because just because we caught it once, doesn’t meal it’ll roll over and play dead.  The nature of Karma is Habit, and we only break Habit by repeating the process of Noticing that we’re entering the chute, and substituting a new Behavior.

There’s more to say about this Full Moon, and about a.Karma’s roll in it, but this is plenty to chew on for now.

Except that we should add one thing.  Note that, contrary to our Programming, Cause and Effect is not a Universal principle.  Cause and Effect requires Linear Time, and Linear Time is a hypnotic intellectual technique to get you to Believe that you’re stuck in one Lifetime.  Folks have many reasons to want you to Believe this, but now that (by virtue of its “discovery”) Sedna is moving into Consciousness and the Veil is thinning, we need to start Learning how to operate outside of Linear Time.  That’s actually pretty easy to do.  Just think of an important memory, and Notice that you’re no longer in the Present Moment, you’re transported to the Time and Place where that memory originally occurred.  That seems kind of trivial, and it is, but it can break the mold enough to allow you to begin Noticing other lapses of Linear Time.

If you’re an “Emotional Thinker” – you judge Truth not by logic but by how it feels in your Belly (usually Venus or the Moon or Vesta in a Water Sign, or sometimes in an Earth Sign) – you don’t live in Linear Time anyway.  Chances are though, since we’re programmed so thoroughly into Linear Time and Cause-Effect that it’s difficult to imagine how it could be otherwise, you Judge yourself for having a hard time fitting into the dominant paradigm.  So your assignment isn’t to start getting out of Linear Time, it’s to stop Judging yourself for being so far ahead of everyone else!

Oh, by the way, Chiron Initiates Vesta on May 13, also at 21 Pisces.  So we’ve some serious waking to do here, but more on that later.
