*Lots* Going On 2

October 9, 2016

Phew.  Finished off that onerous bit of personal business, now back to “work.”  

While I flesh out the rest of *Lots* Going On 1, here’s an excellent summary of it all, just said a little differently that I would have – and more Power to ’em.  It starts out…

Do not expect anything to continue as you have known it in the past.  This is because the material world you are familiar with was formed from the energy of beliefs that no longer exist.  Be open to and embrace change instead of resisting it, for nothing real is ever lost and ideas based in truth (reality) will always reappear in new and higher forms of expression when needed.”

The post is actually from http://www.onenessofall.com/newest.html , but they use a blog template that doesn’t allow “deep linking” (linking to a specific blog post), so I’ve linked to Pauline’s reblog of it.  And with thanks to Eliza at https://bluedragonjournal.com/2016/10/09/marilyn-raffaele-the-arcturian-group/ for the original tip.

Here’s part of another totally Timely page from onenessofall.com …

“Self-love is the ability to acknowledge, accept, and respect the un-desirable parts of one’s self just as much as the desirable ones from a place of non-resistance.  It is the recognition that these facets of self are who you are at this time.  Try to recognize the personal qualities you wish to eliminate as old habits developed over lifetimes and manifesting out of cellular memory from a less evolved time.  They have no real substance other than the power you endow them with and can serve as tools alerting you to lingering concepts and beliefs in need of examination.”

The Arcturians, through Marilyn ( https://bluedragonjournal.com/2016/10/09/marilyn-raffaele-the-arcturian-group/ ), talk about one of our favorite topics, Karma as Inertia…

Justice “often manifests though what the metaphysical world calls Karma, which is a balancing of energies and not the  punishment or revenge that many believe it to be.  Karma is the experiencing of energy formed and held through ignorance by an individual, and often carried over lifetimes until the person is spiritually ready to experience and learn from their creations.  Karma has been a part of every  souls’ learning journey–up to now.  Karma becomes irrelevant once you have evolved beyond that state of consciousness.   Let go of any concepts about karmic retribution you may still hold for yourself, for you are now able to clear, balance, and resolve issues on a higher level, through your attained consciousness of truth.”

My usual approach is to assume that the most difficult part of Letting Go of Karma (which we variously refer to as Patterns, Habits, Archetypes, Unconscious Beliefs, etc) is what we call Noticing.  In general, we don’t change an Unconscious Pattern till we bring it into Consciousness – till we Notice the original Pattern in ourselves.  In my experience, Changing a Pattern once we Notice it is a lot easier than Noticing for the first time.  And of course we can always PIAVA Changes.

However, as I’m reading the intriguing book by Gretchen Rubin called Better than Before, about Changing Habits, I realize (Notice?) that some of the distinctions and techniques she talks about could be very useful to anyone who has been trying to Consciously Change a Pattern and having difficulty making it stick.  For instance, she points out that for some, Abstinence works much better than Moderation, and vice versa for others (pp.136-143). 

She talks about the possible benefits of Scheduling, with the notion that once you’ve Scheduled Time for something, you’ve given yourself permission to NOT do it when it’s not Scheduled.  Johnny Cash’s To-Do List (p.86) included a Time slot for “Worry”, opening the possibility that the rest of his day could be spent more in the Present Moment.  In these max-Change, Ego-Deathful, high-Anxiety Times that trick could be very useful.

On her Lightning Bolt strategy (sudden spontaneous Change), she says it’s…

“A highly effective strategy, but unfortunately it’s practically impossible to invoke on command.  Unlike all the other strategies, it’s not a strategy we can decide to follow; it’s something that happens to us” (pp.122-3).  

With our knowledge of the Seventh Harmonic and the Mjolnir, we actually know when it’s likely to occur – such as right now – and we can precisely time and target our PIAVAs accordingly, if we can avoid Temptations to Judge.

The Jupiter (Expansion) Septile (Seventh Harmonic – Timing) Yod (Admonition to Pay Attention!), based off the Septile from Ceres (Sustainability or Making Permanent) to the Conjunction between Neptune (The Unconscious) and the South Node (Karmic Patterns), persists for several more days, and Jupiter is Initiating Mercury (mind, Communication), which should make it much easier to bring matters into Consciousness, with the caveat that Mercury is a Trickster that can easily stick us into Either/Or and Judgment.  

The 7 Libra Degree of the Jupiter-Mercury Initiation is a chuckle – “A woman feeding chickens and protecting them from the hawks: The need to face the antagonism of ‘powers of darkness’ as one attempts to feed the mind of as yet helpless and frightened apprentices.

It would be timely to differentiate Judgment from Discretion.  In simple terms, Judgment separates the “good” from the “bad,” while Discretion Chooses what’s more preferred over what’s less preferred.  In situations where Unconscious Judgment is involved, the distinction can be fuzzy.  One way to explore Unconscious Judgment might be to ask yourself how comfortable you’d be with the less preferred if the more preferred wasn’t available.

Heavy I

February 21, 2016

With so many planet clustering near the Midpoints of their Signs, the Full Moon features a couple of very large-scale  Configurations.  Let’s call the first one a Butterfly, in 17-20 Degrees.

To make a Butterfly, take a Quincunx Box – two Oppositions one Sign apart – and add a T-Square to each Opposition.  A Quincunx Box is driven by the Oppositions, but the foci of the T-Squares would obviously be dominating points as well, since they overlight the Oppositions.  Once we interpreted the T-Squares, we could say that the Quincunx between the two T-Square foci is the crux of the Butterfly Configuration.

The Oppositions are Jupiter-Chiron (Be Mindful that Discouragement doesn’t get Blown Up here; Witness and Embrace it, and it will be the Miracles that Explode instead) and Lilith-Uranus (How does your Olde Ego prevent your True Self from having Sovereignty over “You”?).  They’re joined by Unxes (Pattern-Breaking) and Quincunxes (Curiosity).  So we might see the Box as…

The Emotions may not seem straightforward here, but this Feels a lot more complicated than it really is.  What is it that your True Self wants, that You aren’t Allowing it to pursue?  The last thing we need is Confrontation between the Ego and the True Self – and at this time…

Because the Full Moon Opposing the OR10-Nessus Initiation will give anything Repressed a great deal of Power.  Even though it’s the True Self, it could easily arrive in the guise of a threatening intruder, if the Olde Ego isn’t willing to Grow on it’s own.  Remember that we’re rehearsing for an Eris-Uranus Initiation, where unflattering secrets will be thrown onto the table, in the effort to get us to clean up any unfinished Uranus-Pluto Yintegrity business.  Jupiter and Chiron are both about to Initiate the Nodes as well, so this is all about Karma and Mission – and Deepest Desires.

…this could easily be what occurs, if we don’t take steps to avoid it.  What steps?

Move to the Quincunxes – Lilith-Chiron and Jupiter-Uranus…

We don’t deal with the Unconscious using the same methodology we’d use to build a Fire or plant a Tree.  We don’t Act, we Allow.  We need PIAVA.  We need Questions on the order of…

Great Spirit, how might I Surrender Gracefully to my Higher Self, without being hijacked by my Fears and Discouragements?

I know, you were Programmed as a child to Believe that your Deepest Desires were Unholy, rather than urges from your Higher Self.  That’s the Programming we’re working with here, our Fears of Unholiness.  It’s called Karma.  Most of us also Learned that Karma can’t be Changed – hence our Discouragement.  That’s what we’re overcoming.

With dwarf planet Orcus Opposite the Neptune-Ceres Opposition, all of our Beliefs that our Deepest Desires are socially unacceptable are lit up.  With Asbolus T-Squaring this Opposition, however, Intuitions are available about how we can turn this around.  

It’s not a Question we’re seeking to Answer; it’s a Question we want to Forget for a while.  If our Ego or True Self don’t let us Forget, we need to patiently and persistently keep Changing the Subject.  Your Ego honestly doesn’t Know how to Answer it, and the mind can only screw things up more than they are; if the mind could Answer this Question, it would have done so a loooong time ago.  After a week or so, we can look back to see if the Great Spirit has provided any Insights.

T-Squaring the Lilith-Uranus Opposition is Pluto.  Transformation awaits us, and it’s not optional.  We will be operating more from our Self-Sovereignty in the Future.  What’s optional is how we handle the Egoic Disruption.  It might behoove to add a qualifier…

Great Spirit, how might I Surrender Gracefully to my Higher Self, Lovingly and Gently, without being hijacked by my Fears and Discouragements?

T-Squaring the Jupiter-Chiron Opposition is the dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential, not Disorder)…

The danger here is that we’ll be thinking waaay too small.  In fact, we shouldn’t be thinking at all – about solutions.  This would be an excellent time to fantasize.  Pull out all the stops.  What if anything you Want was easily within your grasp?  How would that Feel in your Body?  I know, you’d be bored to tears very quickly.  But how would it Feel for the first several years, while you were busy putting your Deepest Desires into motion, before you got jaded.  

And what about the belt, that big Pluto-Chaos Quincunx from wingtip to wingtip?  

We’re almost guaranteed to get Out of Control here.  When we do, we have to go with it.  Like turning into a skid on an icy road.  If our Actions or Words are Out of Control, once we realize it, we don’t need to keep “making it worse.”  But if our Emotions get Out of Control, it’s all the more important that we Witness and Embrace them.  Once we Witness them we can step back into them and Experience what it’s like to go Beyond ourself.  Not while operating machinery of course.  In meditation.

The Butterfly also features two Major Tricolors…

In this case Pluto-Square-Uranus-Quincunx-Jupiter-Trine-Pluto, for which our earlier Question about Surrendering Gracefully would work, and Chaos-Square-Chiron-Quincunx-Lilith-Square-Chaos…

If being Out of Control is Discouraging to us, we can PIAVA something like…

I wonder how I can Shift my Perspective to emphasize my Self-Sovereignty – if I had to please only Myself, I wonder how that would Change things.

Again, this is not a Wondering in search of an Answer; it’s an invitation for a Miracle to enter, once you’re looking the other way.  

The model for these PIAVAs is finding your car keys.  If you find them “where you last had them,” fine, no worries, no need for PIAVA.  If they went Walkabout, you need to Ask for them, then Change the Subject, put your mind and attention on something else entirely.  Next thing you know, you’ll find them in the Butter dish when you go to Butter your Happy Camper Organic Gluten-Free Toast.  If they aren’t there, keep Changing the Subject.

If they don’t eventually jump out at you, you’ll need to Pay Attention.  What did happen?  You had to call a colleague and ask for a ride to work?  How is that related to your car keys?  Does your job excite your True Self?  And how is it related to your Self-Sovereignty?  If you had to please only yourself, would this be the job you’d choose?  Some things aren’t easy to Change with Force; we may need Power instead.

This Pattern gets even more interesting if we drop down to include 16 Degrees.  We add Saturn, which Opposes Chaos and turns our Chaos T-Square into a Grand Cross.  Then we look at the Midpoint of Leo, and find the asteroids Klotho and Sappho, completing the Grand Trine with Saturn and Uranus, and making a Lilith Kite.  Klotho and Sappho together cut a new cloth for your Life, Singing the Praises of Love.  

There’s also a Klotho-Sappho Yod, on a base of the Chiron-Pluto Sextile.  Sextiles mean we need to take the first step, and it needs to be Witnessing any Discouragement that may arise.  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Discouraged, aren’t you.”

We may also need to remember that Witnessing is Magic.  If “I’m Discouraged,” then I’ve Changed my name and Identity.  This is Identity Self-Theft, and it can be as difficult to Recover from.  If “I Feel Discouraged,” then I’m Experiencing an Emotion.  You’ll seldom be Out of Control under “I Feel”; you could easily be Out of Healthy Control under “I am.”  By itself, Witnessing is what Einstein was referring to when he said that we can never solve a problem using the same thinking that postulated the problem.

When we add Empathy to Witnessing – not just “I Feel,” but “You poor Sweetheart, you Feel,” we’ve shifted our Identity again, and our Identity is now Compassion, Compassion for ourself.  Eugene Gendlin wrote the ground-breaking book Focusing; in his PhD thesis he showed that it doesn’t so much matter what techniques you use for Healing, what matters is the presence or absence of Empathy.  Empathy Heals.

After shifting from I am to I Feel and adding You poor Sweetheart, it’s again time to Change the Subject, while we wait for Miracles.  As with PIAVA, if you don’t Change the Subject, you’ll keep looking at the same-old same-old, using the same thinking that created the problem.  At this point mind is not your helper, and it needs to be assigned elsewhere.  

While the realm of Possibility under I am and even I feel is Constrained, the realm of Possibility under You poor Sweetheart is Unlimited.  Once you Change the Subject, the Universe is a different place.  If you want you can look back later and see what happened that wasn’t originally possible, but you probably won’t.  You’ll be too busy Enjoying your new Universe.  No matter; the only important things are to Witness, Embrace, and Change the Subject.

By the way, Uranus will probably remain Lit Up through at least June, and when Uranus is Lit Up it’s folly to try to control your Sleep Patterns.  As much as you can, Sleep or Nap when you’re Sleepy, and do something Fun when you aren’t.  You’ll get a lot more done that way, and what Sleep you do get, even if it’s less than you Expect to get, will be enough.  Uranus and Expectations aren’t very good bed partners.

 

Heavy Duty FullMoon 22.2.16

February 19, 2016

We see the 22 February Full Moon working already, with certain well-known Bullies kicking sand in the face of the Pope.  Well, okay, “he started it” – with a more subtle form of Bullying.  Quite a comedy, actually.  A Full Moon is about Illuminating what was previously kept in the Dark, and you can expect a good deal of Bullying to be “called out” here,  Pilgrim.  Like John Wayne in Liberty Valence, Bullies are heroes in American folklore.  Americans worship Confidence, in more ways than one, alas.

At the Full Moon the Sun is bang on 2007 OR10’s (Uninvited Unconscious Material) Initiation of Nessus (Revelation of Privilege and Abuse) at 3 Pisces, “Petrified tree trunks lie broken on desert sand” (which is exact on 26 February).  It’s Trine-Bridged by Hylonome (Merging or De-Merging with an Archetype) and Quincunx-Bridged by Makemake (Manifestation), leaving Hylonome Waxing-Square to Makemake.  The Makemake-Hylonome Initiation took place in late September 1988 at 4 Virgo, “Black and white children play together happily” – we’ll take that, thanks.

The asteroid Atropos (Mortality) Opposes Makemake, creating a Hylonome T-Square (Even though the gains of Greater Consciousness and De-merging with an Archetype are substantial, all losses must be Grieved).  Venus Sextiles Atropos, making a Finger of Yod focused on the Full Moon at 4 Virgo – the same interracial playground as the Makemake-Hylonome Initiation of the prior paragraph!

One could make a very good case for interpreting the current splash of Racism and Bullying as a final purge of obsolete ideals.  John Perkins has just updated his Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, and his fifteen new chapters echo Naomi Klein’s Shock Doctrine.  John makes it clear that the Lizards are using their media to divide the US population in order to create straw Enemies that they can then exploit even more.  If we compare Bernie’s success so far with McGovern’s progress in 1972 (following the Pluto-Uranus Initiation), we’re ahead of the game, as we should be.

Neptune (Spirit and Community) Initiates Ceres (Sustainability) the day before the Full Moon, at 10 Pisces, “An aviator pursues their journey, flying through ground-obscuring cloud,” clouds of media manipulation, where it’s a front-page headline every time The Donald disgusts himself with another dump.  This Initiation Opposes Orcus (Release from Karma) and is T-Squared by Centaur Asbolus (Intuition) – more Illumination.

Pallas (Boundaries) also Initiates Mercury (Communication) on 21 February, at 11 Aquarius, “During a silent hour, a man receives a new inspiration which may change his life” – more Changes.  Mercury-Pallas and Vesta form the foot of a Quintile Yod focused on Jupiter, implying growing Awareness of Unconscious Beliefs leading to Expansion of Consciousness.  The North Node isn’t involved in the Q-Yod, but it’s certainly Conjunct Jupiter, implying an Expansion into our Missions.

The Full Moon is also Triseptile to Venus and Biseptile to Saturn, bringing Magic into a Focus on our Core Values.

The Drama around this Full Moon will probably become increasingly shocking, but you can expect what is Revealed to be cathartic and ultimately positive.
