Five astroevents and several Configurations coming up here over the next few days. First the timing…
- April 16, Noon PDT (http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt12.htm) – Reorganization of our Unconscious Beliefs is substantially complete, though the other events may eye your dots and tease your cross, or add wells and thistles.
Neptune Initiates Vesta at 9 Pisces, “A jockey spurs his horse, intent on outdistancing his rivals.” Your Emotional (Pisces) Beliefs (Vesta) around Community, Culture, Spirit, and the Sacred (Neptune) are particularly vulnerable to Transformation.
- April 16, 9 pm PDT (http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt21.htm) – Expect things to Lighten Up a little, though not completely, until the next event occurs. Whatever Traumas you’ve encountered since Christmas are now open for review and resolution over the next several months. We recommend leaning toward Forgiveness and Loving Kindness, particularly toward yourSelf, and toward (as a friend writes it) yoursElf.
Pluto Stands Still and turns Retrograde, in 16 Capricorn. Pluto entered it’s 13-16 Degree Shadow Period (the span of its Retrogradation – see below) late last December. This is basically the Gemini Duad of Capricorn, which is about deciding what you want to include or revise in Version 2.0 of whatever Trance(Re)Formation you’re undergoing. Not that “deciding” is the right word when the Deep Unconscious is involved, but Intention (and PIAVA in general) can work Wonders. Bryan’s workshop is amazingly well timed…
- April 17, 3-6pm PDT (http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt18.htm) and possibly until about six hours afterward – Finnessing our Yintegrity.
The Moon Squares Pluto and Occults Uranus. An Occultation is basically an Eclipse – the Moon crossing in front of Uranus – making visible what was previously indistinguishable from the background, in this case another part of our Yintegrity.
- April 18, noon PDT (http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt12.htm) – On your mark, get ready…
A New Moon – seems like we have one of these darn near every month! This one’s at 29 Aries, “The Music of the Spheres: Attunement to Cosmic Order.” Intense, eh? After all this Waiting for Godot, this may really be the Tripping Point. More on this below.
- April 19, 7pm PDT (http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt19.htm) – GO! Whatever that new project is, now is the time to throw it into high gear. All necessary background revisions are complete. Any Boundary Issues (people who anger you, opportunities missed) occur for you in February or March? Time to think about rectifying them by Speaking your Truth, and Acting on Opportunities.
Pallas Stands Still and turns Retrograde, at 1 Capricorn. It’s Shadow Period starts at 12 Sagittarius in late January, the Taurus and Virgo Decanates of Capricorn. This is more Version 2.0 – we Build something, put it out there to see if it “sells,” then revise it. “Building” here is probably about how well we Live our Yintegrity and how willing we are to Act on our Wants, to let ourself recognize and receive them. In this regard, the Dain Heer presentation on Lisa Garr’s Summit is, as Bugs would say, verrry interesting…
I don’t now how long it will be online.
Shadow Period – the Can Opener portion of a Retrogradation happens before the Retrograde Station, when the planet crosses the zone for the first time. The Retrograde period is the Exposition phase. The Confidence-Builder stage occurs after the Direct Station. The term “Shadow Period” refers to the Zodiacal Span between the Direct Station and the Retrograde Station, and the Time Span between the planet’s first entering that Zodiacal Span and the planet’s final exit, which involves all three crossings.
Duad or Dwad – one twelfth of a Sign, or two and a half Degrees. The Aries Duad of Aries is the first twelfth, the Taurus Dwad the second twelfth, and so on. The Taurus Duad of Taurus is the first two-and-a-half Degrees, the Gemini Duad the second two-and-a-half, etc.
Decanate – ten Degrees. The Aries Decanate of Aries is the first ten Degrees. The second ten Degrees is the Leo Decanate – the next Fire Sign. The third ten Degrees is the Sagittarius Decanate. The second Decanate of Taurus is the Virgo Decanate – the next Earth Sign. The second Decanate of Gemini is the Libra Decanate – the next Air Sign. The second Decanate of Cancer is the Scorpio Decanate – the next Water Sign. Und so weiter.

Grace Abounds, but it’s up to us to take the first step.
Our Grand Sextile still holds…

The New Moon Tricolor is the second-most-prominent Configuration, since the New Moon Trines the Pallas Station, which in turn Squares Makemake.
There’s something important you’ve been working on for the last few months. You’ve more or less Created a prototype of it, and you’re kind of questioning how badly you really Want it, since it feels like you may be Asked to give up some other valuable things if you actually Choose it. It may not end up being a Conscious Choice, however, as in some ways it’s sort of preordained.
Where you do have Choice, is in how you Manifest Version 2 of it. If you Want you can even PIAVA to “have your cake and eat it too” – you can Intend that Version 2 brings you all of the best parts of your new Creation, and that you get to keep all of the good things about all of your previous Co-Creations. Be patient; Version 2 will be in the oven till December. Lots of time to sharpen your “Oh, I Want this too!” PIAVAs.
In early December, Pluto Initiates Pallas, at the Midpoint of Capricorn, “In a hospital, the children’s ward is filled with toys.“
Pallas still sits in the center of a Stellium (a group of three or more planets lined up together), with Chariklo (Charm), Hylonome (Grief), Quaoar (Lawgiver), and, weakly, Pholus (Blame). The Pallas Station-Stellium makes a bunch of interesting Angles here. It’s Triseptile to Venus – Magic is afoot. Mercury Trines it while Juno Quintiles it, meaning we’ll not just be Growing our Consciousness, but to some extent understanding how we’re Growing. It’s Quintile to Vesta-Neptune and Binovile to the North Node, implying that Meditation will be a Powerful aid to Learning here. And, the North Node and Juno form the base of a Finger of God focused on Vesta-Neptune.
Basically, Walking in Beauty here involves…
- Staying Curious about how your new Beliefs will impact your Mission (that is, if you think you’ve got it figured out, Let it Go – you want to stay in Curiosity as long as you can, or your Dualistic mind will freeze it and kill it dead – a Revert!).
- Whenever you feel any tinge of Conflict over how what you’re Creating might impact what you’ve already Manifested, Wonder how you might attune to the Music of the Spheres instead. You can have Both/And, with ice cream too, you just have to be Worthy enough to Ask for it.
This color means that this part is really important.
Θ Θ Θ Θ Θ
The next-most-important Configuration is a new one that looks like one of those old twin-peaked WWII US Army hats…
We’ll call this Configuration a Twin Peaks. It’s two planets Quincunx to one another, each one Sextile to another planet that Squares the other end of the Quincunx. It’s composed of two Minor Tricolors that share the same Quincunx, so that any Challenges that arise from each of the Squares can be resolved using Curiosity, as long as you take the first step.
The Quincunx is between our Stationary Pluto and the dwarf planet Chaos (Potential, not Disorder), and the Squares are Uranus to Pluto and Chiron to Chaos.
The Potential here is not Limited, but we are. We’re Limited by our Negative Beliefs – which,
Even though they’ve been blown away, have we noticed?
Or are we just assuming that it can’t happen because we’ve never been able to visualize it or imagine how it might happen. Focusing on how is the Male way of Creating, and we’re moving into unknown territory here, where Male Energy is useless. We need to use the Female way of Creating, which doesn’t care about how, it focuses on what. Of course we don’t know how – it’s never been done before. Think about your Mythology – the Boys do the things that have been done before, but when things get invisible or unattainable, it’s the Girls that take over. It wasn’t Buddy the Vampire Slayer!
This is the definition of Unconscious Despair – we don’t know how to Create something we Want, and for whatever reason we don’t Believe it’s possible, so we don’t even consider it.
You don’t know what you Want? Well, what if you did know? So, what answer have you already rejected?
Is that what you Want? Or is it some unimaginable triple quadruple permutation of that? This is Stretch Time. See how far you can reach, how Ridiculous you can be while being completely serious. When we’re in the realm of the Ridiculous, we know we’re getting close, because there’s a good chance you were indeed Ridiculed for Wanting that, maybe even by yourself.
Marry the Quarterback? Ha! Don’t be silly. I don’t even have tits yet, why would he even look at me?
Make a hundred times as much as the old man? By doing what, robbing banks? Besides, he’d hate me for showing him up – don’t even think about it.
Create a Life that would look like a Legend in my own mind? Forget it, I’m a Girl – look at how they treat Girls! It’s not even worth fantasizing about.
Nobody would ever let a Gay Black live like that. It’d get me dead!
The don’t even have a name for the kind of Sex or Relationship I would like.
I couldn’t talk about that even to my best friend – I’d be so Ashamed I’d die!
Why do I even bother thinking about that – I can’t even get it up.
I can’t have Security and Freedom – they’re contradictory.
I’d do anything for Love, but I won’t do that!
The key is Wondering about it, letting yourself Dream without worrying about “Reality.” We’re stretching Reality. So what if no one has ever done it, you can be the first. Somebody has to be first. How else are we going to Co-Create a New World?
When you get a tickle, take one step in that direction, then wait to see what happens, but stay open to Miracles. PIAVFA that you’ll recognize it, because it may be so far out of your ideation that you don’t even notice it when it happens. You don’t even need to know what to Ask for – in fact, it’s better if you don’t…
Great Spirit, may I please have a Miracle that Surprises and Delights me for the rest of my Life?
Θ Θ Θ Θ Θ
One more, another new Configuration, that we’ll call an Hourglass. This one is an Opposition and a Quincunx that cross each other, so they’re one Sign apart on one end, and two Signs apart on the other. We unlock the Sextile by Wondering what single step might start the Manifestation process rolling in our favor.
The Opposition is Eris (Revelation of Denial) to Haumea (Rebirth), and the Quincunx is Sedna (Actions taken out of Fear) to Ixion (Damn the Consequences) and Pholus (Don’t Blame me, I couldn’t stop it). These Energies are Deep in the Unconscious, out beyond Pluto, so we may be only dimly aware of them at best. The only exception is Pholus, which orbits from Saturn to out beyond Neptune, so it is within our realm of Attention, if through a glass darkly. It’s currently on its way to Neptune. It left Saturn’s neighborhood around 1990. What were we Wishing For back then, during the Harmonic Convergence? Wasn’t that about a Culture that actually supported individual Autonomy? Not in the who-gives-a-shit-about-you-its-all-about-me “Libertarian” fashion, but with Harmony and Understanding, Sympathy and Trust Abounding.
So as Chiron carries the Individual Soul’s Message in from Uranus to the Saturnian Ego, and carries the Ego’s Request back to the Individual Soul, Pholus carries the Community Soul’s Message in from Neptune to the Saturnian Ego, and carries the Ego’s Request back to the Community Soul. Pholus’s Request that’s being delivered to the Community Soul soon is plaintive…
I want my Tribe! Where is the Community that I Love Unconditionally and that Loves me Unconditionally? The Community that doesn’t waste it’s Energy fighting other Communities – We’re All One, damn it! The Community that Lives on this Planet not just Sustainably, but that leaves only footprints and actually leaves things better than before! How can we do that when Surviving and Fighting takes all of our Energy and Attention? Where is our Tribe? Enough with the Walkabout already!
In 1990 the relationship between Pholus and Neptune was Cancer Opposite Capricorn – “I want my Mommy!” – but on the Community level. On its previous loop it left Neptune in 1957, the year of the tailfin. On the surface its Message for the Ego was “You can have it all!” Behind the curtain it was “See if you can figure out how to make Community work!” – Scorpio Square Aquarius. When Pholus leaves Neptune again in 2021, the new Message will be “Let’s do Compassion this time, we can do it!” – Capricorn Sextile Pisces.
It’s the Pholus-Ixion Conjunction that renders Libertarianism so hedonistic. I’ve never read it, but I’m told that Ayn’s work wasn’t Fuck-the-99% at all, even though it was anti-Communist in the sense of anti-Power Over. As Naomi Klein so clearly explains in The Shock Doctrine, anti-Communism was the doublethink used to justify Ixionic Greed.
So Blame here is our doorway to Deeper layers of the Unconscious, where we can make Changes that have a real and lasting Impact. The Unconscious is impersonal – every positive Change that any one of us makes in there, is one more marble moved toward the Tipping Point. The Prize here (the “Coin” in the Opposition) is opening up to a Deep, Deep Denial (Eris) in such a way that it allows a complete Rebirth (Haumea). The key that unlocks the Portal is
Wondering what it is that we do, or not do, out of Fear (Sedna) that we’ll be Accused (Pholus) of Failing to Care (Ixion). It’s not about Figuring it Out – it’s about maintaining the state of Wonder. It’s not a Question that wants an Answer. It’s a Koan meant to permanently Open our Curiosity, and keep it Open.
I Wonder what it is that I do or don’t do, because of Fear that I’ll be Accused of not Caring?!? Or out of Fear that it will look like I’m being Selfish?!? I Wonder.
