December 21, 2016

The “Green” Energy in the Calendar (Saturn-Chiron-Chaos-Nemesis) peaks 26-29 December, but most folks will be Feeling it already, in spite of the “Purple” Energy in between (Sun-Pholus-Galactic Center, 15-21 December).  We’ve talked some about each of these in previous posts.  We haven’t talked about the “Blue” Energy yet, which peaks rather precisely at New Years Eve, but I’ve been Feeling it strongly over the last several days.  The “Blue” Energy is about Scarcity and Abundance.  Find the Calendar I’m referring to at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/12/18/communique-from-hq-2/ .  We’ll work here on trying to understand the “Green” Energy more.

Saturn-Chiron

Chiron is an emissary with an irregular orbit.  In the fifty years it takes to make one loop, it starts out just beyond the orbit of Uranus, where it picks up Instructions from the Soul.  It then moves in to the environs of Saturn’s orbit, where it delivers the Instructions to the Ego, and receives Information to take back to the Soul.  

In a Free-Will Universe, Soul and Ego are equal partners, not master and servant.  If Ego served Soul, Life on our Planet would be quite Different.  Ego is the mortal 3D Experiencer for the Higher-Dimension immortal Soul (see the first link in the Resonations post below).  Chiron’s Dance between Despair and Miracles is the Dance between Ego and Soul.

Saturn makes a Waning Square to Chiron, beginning the wind-down of a Cycle that began in April 1966 at 24 Pisces, People living closely together on a small Island in the middle of the Sea.  That Image speaks loudly of Global Warming.  The next Cycle begins in 2028.  The suggestion is that for many the Island Lifestyle may not survive more than another eleven years or so.  

Isolation is another element of the Image, and the corresponding suggestion would be that Monoculturalism is on its last stilts.  Since a Waning Square is a Crisis of Letting Go, politics in the US are certainly Mirroring Crises of Environmental Care and Monoculturalism.  If we picture Europe as a “small island,” we see some of the same issues coming to Crisis, here issues of multiple Cultures trying to Coexist in close proximity.

This 1966 Saturn-Chiron Cycle was an integral part of the Ouija Board Pluto-Uranus Initiation, as Saturn and Chiron then Opposed Uranus and Pluto.  Our 2012-2016 Yintegrity issues were of course signaled by the Waxing Square of Uranus to Pluto – the Waxing Square is when a Cycle’s Energy emerges from hiding and becomes a permanent part of the Zeitgeist.  In the “Green” calendar you’ll notice that our suite of astroevents begins with Jupiter Opposing Uranus – later we’ll see what an amazing role Jupiter played in the Pluto-Uranus Initiation. 

Chiron-Chaos

Dwarf planet Chaos recall does not symbolize Disorder, but Unlimited Potential.  “Chaos” was the condition that preceded the Greek Patriarchy’s reorg of the Perceived Universe – ie, of Mother Nature and the Matriarchy.  So yes, from the Perspective of Testosterone, less than Absolute Power is hard to fathom, Chaotic.  Chaos also represents the not-really-empty “Vacuum” of Space, or the Zero Point Field.  Hence we use “Unlimited Potential” as our key synonym.

The Chiron-Chaos Cycle is about the Dance with Limitation.  Chiron requires new Perspective to Liberate us from our Dead Ends, and Limitation is an obvious spanner in that works.  The Cycle that’s now beginning to wind down began in April 1976 at 28 Aries, A large audience confronts a disappointing performer.  We know it wasn’t John and Olivia, but I can think of several other candidates from that era.

In the current political situation in most of the World, large audiences confronting disappointing political performers are pretty common, as are large audiences setting up straw heroes for potentially spectacular disappointments in the near future.  This is the Waning Square, so this mob rule notion is thankfully winding down.  

We also see large segments of Society loudly demonstrating their disappointment in the performance of Science, equal numbers demonstrating their disappointment in the performance of Religions, and 99% of us demonstrating our disappointment in current models of Political Economy.  All of these tools for Structuring Reality beg for Transcendence of their Obvious Limits.  

The next Cycle doesn’t begin until 2041.  That leaves a lot of doors unlocked.

Saturn-Chaos

The current Saturn-Chaos Cycle began in April 2001 at 29 Taurus, “Two cobblers working at a table.”  There’s Grounding there, and sabots should we run out of spanners; “Work” – as opposed to Play; and Duality, which Rudhyar emphasizes.  Curious that it’s a Table rather than a Workbench.  While our favorite picture of Saturn is as The Most Important Thing, it also represents Structure, Order, Discipline, the Patriarchy, and the Ego.

So the Saturn-Chaos Cycle represents the Yang-oriented Ego’s Constant Struggle against the Unknown, Unpredictable, and usually Sudden Life-Changing events that Nature is so Skilled at providing to disrupt excessive Organization.  At least, excessive Organization is what we assume when we view our Reality as “It Is As It Is.”  From the Ego’s Perspective of course, the Disruption is simply Evil Intent.

The other two Cycles are Waning; this one is Blooming (Opposition), and when you consider how many other Socially Critical Cycles are Waning into the Void – Jupiter-Saturn, Jupiter-Pluto, Saturn-Pluto, Saturn-Neptune. and now Saturn-Chiron, it’s little Wonder that the Ego’s Constant Struggle against Loss of Control is Lit Up Strongly.

But it means we have until 2026 to enjoy the Fruits of Organized Potential, before this Cycle begins to Wane.  And we have the Phitile coming up in early 2021, which should provide an early Future-Stretching bonus from the beginnings of the Digital Age.  The Phitile represents the Fruiting of a Cycle; the 223-Degree Golden Angle from Sacred Geometry, 360 divided by Phi.

  Φ    Φ    Φ    Φ    Φ  

Interesting that all three of these major Cycles began in an April, symbolizing Fresh Beginnings in NorthernHemispherism, and Harvest on the Yin side of the Sphere.  Of course, when we’re dealing with the Non-Dual Unconscious, which is the major object of our musings, it’s the Coin that counts, not the Sides.  And of course, most of all, the Edges.

Saturn-Chiron-Chaos

So to kernelize these three Cycles and our position in them, we have Wanings in Safe Monoculturalism (Saturn-Chiron) and in Social Organization (Chiron-Chaos), and a Blooming in the Ego’s Ability to mold Matter into useful shapes (Saturn-Chaos).  If we look at a Chiron T-Square across a Saturn-Chaos Opposition as a static Configuration rather than a Convergence of Trends, we’re Challenged to Master Opening ourself to New Perspectives that dissolve the apparent Struggle between Order and Anarchy.  The Vacancy provides Gems on a Royal Coat of Arms.  

How do we merge these Perceptions?  Once, as a friend was dying, an expatriate from German Pomerania, he told me “Hitler wasn’t so bad,” as if it was something he had to “get off his chest.”  And judging from his stories about life in Germany before and after WWII, it was easy to understand that Perspective, how the Struggle between Order and Anarchy was resolved – as long as you weren’t one of the Scapegoats or under the bombs.  We certainly see heavy use of Scapegoating Worldwide today, in the attempt to restore irretrievably lost Monoculturalism.

Perhaps the Gift of the 2021 Phitile will be a small Fish we can put in our Ear, that allows us to understand what anyone else is saying, from their own Perspective, not from translations that inevitably ignore the subtle and not-so-subtle Differences that characterize different Cultures.  Between now and 2021, however, we may need to endure a Planet where edible Fish are extinct and mutual antagonism is a lot more common than mutual understanding.

If we look to make Lemonade from these Lemons, we may need to steal the underlying maxim of Predatory Capitalism: “Where there is Crisis there is Opportunity.”  The Predators think of it as Opportunity to gather OPM – Other People’s Money.  We can think of it as Opportunity to Create Peace, Unity of Purpose, and Collaboration.

The Focus of the T-Square after all is Chiron, Despair and Miracles, and we know the route from the one to the other – through Empathy.  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really Feeling ______, aren’t you.”  Fill in the blank, Change the Subject, and after a day or so Pay Attention to see what Changed and how it might be related to the Limitation that you didn’t Believe could be Transcended.

December 19, 2016

We’re well into the Province (in Time) of the “Green” Energy from our earlier calendar – the core is the Saturn-Chiron-Chaos (The Most Important Thing is Letting Go of Limiting Beliefs, or Limits Revert!) T-Square (Challenge to Mastery).  There are a number of Grace-Full Configurations accompanying it, which we’ll get to later.  Their Essential Elements include Trust, Acceptance that It Is as It Is, and Honoring our Unique Genius.

As frequent readers know, Sensitivity is Important – an astroevent where the two or more planets are 10 arcminutes apart (ie one sixth of a Degree) is likely to be Experienced as more Intense than one where the Separation is 45 arcminutes.  Here’s how our Saturn-Chiron-Chaos components stack up at 2pm PST on 28 December…

  • Saturn 21:01 Sagittarius
  • Chiron 21:01 Pisces
  • Chaos 21:03 Gemini
  • Nemesis 21:24 Sagittarius

Twenty-four hours earlier it was…

  • Saturn 20:53
  • Nemesis 20:59
  • Chiron 20:59
  • Chaos 21:04  

You’d be hard-pressed to get a slip of paper between them.  For comparison, the Full Moon is about 30 arcminutes wide, or half a Degree.  Two planets of course occupy the same Exact Degree whenever they cross, but it’s rare for a third planet to be this close when the first two are Exact, let alone a fourth.

A T-Square is Challenging, among other reasons, because it is Unbalanced.  We “Complete” a T-Square astrologically by adding a fourth planet at the “Vacancy” to complete a Grand Cross; here that would be 21:02 Virgo.  We Complete it Energetically by Contributing our own Energy into the Vacancy.  Virgo 22 is about “A royal coat of arms enriched with precious stones.”  In other words, to make the T-Square more manageable, we need to Stand Tall and Proudly call upon the Power of the Earth to stand with us as we Command our Limiting Trances to Revert!  A Belief is a Trance, a Spell, a Curse.  Get out your Garlic.

13.12 Full Moon V

December 12, 2016

This Full Moon brings us a chart so complex that our assignment amounts to Interpreting what’s The Most Important Thing.  And I believe that amounts to

Becoming Conscious about How Instinct, Intuition, and Timing Work Together to Create Our Reality – and Learning to Do It Effortlessly

Several hours before the Full Moon, the Moon (Instinct) crosses the Centaur Asbolus (Intuition), which is at the head of the Septile Kite we’ve discussed, Septile to Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) and to Uranus-Eris-et al (The Heart’s Truth, which is Different for each of us), and Triseptile to Chariklo (Walking in Beauty).

Moon-Asbolus also Oppose Juno (the Edges of Consciousness), T-Squared (Challenged) by asteroid Karma (Letting Go of Archetypes that have Captured Us).  The Vacancy is 14 Pisces – Stolen Fox Fur.  This is about Dropping our Masks or Disguises.  Having to Perform to maintain an Artifice means we can’t Act Weird, and in order to follow our Instincts and Intuitions and Act At The Right Time, we’re going to have to Act Weird sometimes.  While having a Mask of Acting Weird may be useful at times, the Mask will still get in our way when Following Our Truth requires us to Act Conventionally.

While this isn’t Exact until 28 December (when it’s incredibly Exact, within a few arcminutes!), a Chiron (Healing Despair) T-Square is forming with Saturn (The Most Important Thing) and dwarf planet Chaos (Limitlessness), just as asteroid Nemesis (Ego Death) crosses Saturn.  They’re currently within a little more than two Degrees of Sensitivity, and will reach one Degree by the Solstice.  The Vacancy is 22 Virgo, A girls’ basketball team – can’t think of a better symbol for Intuition, Instinct, and Timing!

Both Squares are Waning – we’re “descending” into Uncertainty around the meaning of these Cycles.  The Nemesis-Saturn Cycle is about the useful life and expiry date of an Ego Configuration.  The Saturn-Chiron Cycle is about the Intimacy of our Soul Connection.  The Chiron-Chaos Cycle is about the Edges of our Beliefs in the Nature of the Universe and our Place in It.  This sort of Configuration is likely to occur maybe once every 8,000 years or more.  So it’s worthy of our undivided Attention.  Whatever Material Structures we’re using to prop up our Ego (that is, what makes us Feel Safe and Unthreatened?), the sooner we can loosen our grip, the Easier it will be on us.

While a Chiron T-Square with Saturn-Nemesis and Chaos by itself is a Big Deal, this one is extraordinarily tight, making it even more unusual.  It’s complemented here by a Grand Sextile: Jupiter (Expansion), Eurydike (Trust), Uranus-Eris et al (Yintegrity), and Moira (Fate) joining Saturn-Nemesis and Chaos.  It’s also joined by another Septile Kite, this one topped by Pallas (Boundaries), Triseptile to Vesta (Limiting Beliefs), and Septile to Uranus-et-amicis and Mercury (the intellect).

“How wonderful it is to witness the timing of truth.  You now realize that you have nothing to defend, for truth needs no defense.  You will find that vulnerability also contains its own blessings, for you are not born and you cannot die.  Always be naked to Self, for at that level of Self-acceptance you will find clarity and insight.”  –Michael Roads, Journey into Oneness: Into a Timeless Realm, p.115

Some other Light Reading follows.  I’m including the short passages just so you can see what the blog posts are about; I recommend reading the whole post if you can spare the time.  As you read these, remember Both/And…

You have taken yourselves to a point in your evolution where nothing else matters.  Nothing in the world, or of the world, is as significant as your evolution, your expansion, your ascension.  This is important for you to recognize so that you don’t get lost in the circumstances of your reality.”  — https://newsununity.com/2016/12/12/the-arcturians-all-about-ascension/ 

In keeping with that new (or remembered) inner awareness, I now choose to maintain a purely neutral stance and seek to continuously radiate unconditional love and the golden light of Christ Consciousness out into the world.  By doing so, I can assist in raising up the general frequency level, thus allowing more of what has been hidden to be revealed so it can be transmuted and released.  By radiating out from my heart center the Violet Flame, I am using compassion as a tool for the transformation of our world.”  — https://bluedragonjournal.com/2016/12/12/eliza-on-the-sacredness-of-life/ 

Then around 7 years old, we go to school.  Now we have left our home and face an entirely different group of people.  And guess what?  They are all our age.  Therefore, we should have a lot in common with them—right?  But what if we are ‘different’?  What if we can talk to beings that most people never even see?  Before, we just thought we were different from our parents, but then we learn that we are different from most of the people that are our own age.  This is why the Arcturians usually bring up the ages of around 3 and around 7, as these are the ages in which our ‘individuation’ really begins.”  — http://suzanneliephd.blogspot.com/2016/12/the-beginning-through-suzanne-lie.html 

“Many will come to understand that one must completely free the self of the old in order to experience the new.  For in the new reality of the New Earth, there is no room for hatred and division.  We must release or BE released WITH the old.  It is all a matter of choice.  We say to you there is no turning back, let go of all fearful concepts, hold your light as we move forward.  You are in for some great surprises, one after another.  Wave after wave we are reaching the shore, sooner than many may think.”  — https://newsununity.com/2016/12/12/the-event-splitting-of-worlds/ 

Aim Higher

February 26, 2016

Step One: Focus on What you Want, not on What you don’t Want.  This step is critical, don’t skip it.

If that’s hard, start by finding something you can be Grateful for.  Running Water.  Hot Water.  Clean Water.  Enough Food, or even some Food.  A roof when it Rains.  A flush krapper.  A little less Pain than last week.  Make a short list of things you aren’t Anxious about.  The other shoulder doesn’t hurt.  Someone said a kind word to you last month.  You have a comfortable chair.  Anything will do.

Good start.  Now make a short list – several things – of what you Don’t Want.  Doesn’t matter if you’re already afflicted with it, or if it’s just threatening, or if you’re Anxious that it might threaten.  Give each of them a number, 1 to 10, 10 being “I’d Rather Die,” and 1 being “Oh Bother.”  Tap on each of them a couple times: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4 if you need a review.  Then give them numbers again, 1 to 10.  Any reduction?  If not, circle that one, you’ll have to come back to it later.

Now make a short list of what you Do Want, several things.  They can be an inch away or Pie in the Sky, no matter.  Give them numbers, 1 to 10, 1 being “That’d be cool” and 10 being “I’ll Die without That!”  Make a short note about how you’ll Feel when you get each one.  In descending rank order (starting with your 10), for each one, take a minute and practice Feeling exactly that.

Step Two: Focus on What you Really Want.  Take your top Want and really Feel how it’s going to be when you’re able to Receive it.  Touch it.  Smell it.  Hear it.  Taste it.  Embrace it.  See it.  If your second Want is close to your top Want in number, do the same with it.

Step Three: What has Stopped you from Taking What you Really Want a long time ago?  Your underprivileged upbringing?  Guilt?  Your Significant Others?  Fear?  Your Belief that it’s happening to you?  Your Mother’s Ghost?  Do you Deserve it?  Are these reasons external to you, or internal?  Tap on a few of your Stops.  Bring them inside; if it’s a Bully that’s been Stopping you, recognize that it’s your Unwillingness to Confront, or your Belief that you’d be worse off if you Confronted, or your Hopelessness.  Rather than spend a lot of time on this, take notes.  This is important, so you’ll want to come back to it later.

Step Four: Focus again on What you Really Want.  Take your top Want and really Feel how it’s going to be when you’re able to Receive it.  Touch it.  Smell it.  Hear it.  Taste it.  Embrace it.  See it.  Notice if it’s any easier or deeper than it was in Step Two.  If it is, make a note to repeat Steps Two and Three later.  If you want, do the same with your second Want.

Step Five: Aim Higher.  What if you could have more of What you Really Want, or What you Really Want with a lot of bells and whistles?  Feel how that’s going to be when you’re able to Receive it.  If you Change your mind and decide that what you Really want is something else entirely, great!  Feel how that’ll be when you Receive it.  Any Stops?  Take notes so you can come back to them later.

Step Six: Now Aim a lot Higher.  Stay with What you Want, but get ridiculous about it.  You Wanted a Mate?  Imagine having three!  A house?  Make it a mansion with its own caretaker, and a luxury RV with professional driver besides.  World Peace?  Go for Galactic Peace, or Universal Peace.  You Wanted Good Health?  Go for Good Health and Superpowers.

At this point in our Timelines, this is where we need to be.

The dwarf planet Chaos, which symbolizes Unlimited Potential, turns Direct on 29 February a few minutes after 3pm PST, 11pm UT.  It’s Stationary (at it’s most Powerful) now.  It’s in Gemini (Mutation).  No better time to nurture Huge Changes than when your Infinite Improbability Drive is firing on all cylinders.  Did you think Douglas  Adams wrote fiction?

The Chaos Station Squares Chiron, so there’s great potential for Discouragement or even Despair, but far greater potential for Miracles when we Empathize with any Discouragement we feel.  Chiron’s moving through Pisces, where it’s churning up every Emotional component of our Limiting Beliefs and exposing them to the Sun, which will sterilize them.

The asteroid Juno, which symbolizes The Growing Edge of our Consciousness, turns Retrograde on 2 March at a few minutes before 3am PST or 11am UT, meaning it’s Stationary (at it’s most Powerful) now.  This occurs at the Midpoint of Scorpio – one of the Strongest points in the Zodiac, particularly adept at turning over rocks and diving deep to uncover hidden motives.  No better time to remove Limiting Beliefs and Grow your sense of the Possible.  And Chaos will still be Stationary.

Between the Full Moon and 8 March, a Quintile between Pallas (Boundaries) and Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs and Limits) forms the base of a Quintile Yod focused on Jupiter (Expansion).  The Quintile Yod says that It’s Really Important to Pay Attention to Learning This!  Learning what?  Learning to Expand our sense of Self by stretching our Boundaries to Let Go of Limiting Beliefs.  Jupiter is in Virgo, and Virgo is about Disassembling the Ego in order to make Space for Growth.

Jupiter completes a T-Square with Chaos and Chiron, focused on Chaos – Expanding our Discouragement and Overwhelm about the sheer quantity of Possible Futures we face, and Expanding the incredible Potential for Miracles waaay beyond what we can imagine!  We just have to stretch into them.  While it’s a few Degrees out of orb, Saturn (The Most Important Thing) completes the Grand Cross – so it’s our Willingness to Focus our Attention on what we Want to Create that will Co-Create the Big Shift.

The Most Important Thing that the Lizards are here to Teach us, is that Crisis breeds Opportunity.  Read Naomi Klein’s Shock Doctrine and Tom Perkins’s New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, and turn them on their heads – like it or not, Crisis is here, and likely to remain till 2020 (when Saturn Initiates Jupiter), What are WE going to do with the Opportunity?  Do we have enough cumulative Attention to Focus on What we Want and Shift the Planet away from Greed and Competition, and back toward Community and Collaboration?  Do we have enough Self-Love to Create what we Need for our own personal Peace, in order to have Loving Attention to spare for the Planet, so we aren’t just Projecting our Anxiety?

Jupiter meanwhile is moving toward an Initiation of the North Node (Mission and Deepest Desires) – Expanding our sense of What we Want and Where we’re Going.  That’ll happen in June, close to when Eris Initiates Uranus and we come face to face with all the ways we’ve been forcing the True Self to Hold Back.  Jupiter and the North Node are now two Degrees apart – Conjunct, in other words – meaning that we can’t tell the difference between them.  The more Work we do with our Wants and Stops now, the easier June will be, and the impact will be exponential.

Lunar Portals along the way, all ± three hours…

  • 10am PST 28 February, Moon over Stationary Juno
  • 11pm 1 March till 7am PST 2 March, Moon over Saturn corner of the Grand Cross
  • 11am PST 6 March, Moon over Pallas
  • 11am till 9pm PST 8 March, Moon over Chiron corner of the Grand Cross
  • New Moon at 6pm PST 8 March Conjoins Chiron, stretching the Grand Cross into the rest of March

If you focus on what you Don’t Want over the next several weeks, you’re going to be miserable, because you’ll be wallowing in everything you’re going to have to Give Up in order to Grow into What you Want.  If you focus on your Pain about having to Give Up what you Don’t Want but you like better than the Unknown, that’s fine – but Witness it and Embrace it.  Put All of your Attention into the center of your Pain, and leave it there until the Pain melts away.  Or step back and “You poor Sweetheart” yourself to Death.

This is, after all, a colossal Ego Death.  Re-read our Full Moon readings, Heavy I and Heavy II.  The World is Changing fast, and even when we stand up our arms aren’t long enough to reach the cord to ring the driver to let us off.  Focus on What you Want to Create, be Loving and Gentle with every Resistance you encounter, be especially Loving and Gentle with your Grief about what you’re Giving Up, but stay Present with the realization that what you’re Creating will be far better than what you’re Giving Up. 

Remember that Confusion is the first Stage of Growth, it means that your rigid mental structures, which are the intellectual rationalizations for your Limiting Beliefs, are starting to break down.  Try to avoid talking yourself out of Confusion.  Don’t forget Curiosity.  “I Wonder how the devil we’re going to pull this off!”  It is WE – we’re in this Together!  Curiosity is next to Love, as both eschew Judgment, and we know that Love is greater than Hope or Faith.

If you have notes from Steps One or Three or Four or Five, set aside as much time as you can spare between now and March 1, and between now and March 8, to work on these more.  Use your PIAVAs when you get stuck on something; see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava/ if you need a review.  If What you Want is important to you, the time you spend on this will be more important than that.

Not only are the relevant Changes happening in the Unconscious, but they’re shifting the Future, and most of us most of the time aren’t able to see either.  There will be plenty of time for Planning, Doing, Executing the details of our Manifestations as we go forward.  Now is the time for PIAVAing the Big Picture of What we Want our Manifestation to look like, and most of all, Lovingly and Gently Letting Go of all of our internal obstacles to Receiving what we Really Want.

Unlimited Potential

May 5, 2015

girl_with_elves-large Vision of Freedom: “Girl with Elves” by Maxfield Parrish.  Notice how she’s not looking directly at the Elves.  We have a tendency to jerk our head toward anything that moves, but we’ll see better if we use our peripheral vision and sidelong glances.

Feeling a little nervous about how we’re going to Balance our newfound Yintegrity‘s need to Trust Ourself moment to moment, with our Belief that if we don’t do what we’re told we won’t survive?  Well, those Feelings are right on time.

The dwarf planet Chaos (Potential, not Disorder) is T-Squaring the developing Opposition between Lilith (Yindependence) and the impending Chiron-Vesta Initiation (Miraculous Transformation of Limiting Beliefs).  Which is to say…

Our Limiting Beliefs are up in our face because they’re bring threatened Bigtime by a Vision of Unlimited Self-Autonomy.  The contrast is painful.  All of our CAN’T messages are flashing red.  That’s Discouraging at best and at worst touches our Despair.  Well, that’s not quite worst – we could be failing to understand why we’re Feeling Discouraged because we’ve really never had any concept of Unlimited Potential.  So we’re just Scared and we don’t know why.

But what’s really Changing here, if we’re willing to accept the Gift, is our Limiting Beliefs.  There’s a Vision of Freedom just outside your window, but there are bars on the window!  Our habitual Reaction is to focus on the bars and rue the impossibility of Freedom.  Our non-habitual Response will be to melt the bars, because that’s exactly what the Universe is doing – melting the bars.  Our Habituation sees the bars as being still there, so we need to erase them manually.  It’ll be one of those over-and-over-again things, as the bars keep reforming.  That’s the nature of Habit – it takes “reps” to break down the old Pattern.

The concept of Freedom in a Patriarchal Culture is different from the concept of Freedom in a Matriarchal Culture.  In the latter it’s more about Freedom to Be who you really Are, rather than Freedom to Do whatever you Want.  Matriarchal Cultures have rules of Behavior, but except in extreme cases, not Judgment of the person who’s ignoring the rules.  The Vision is one of Community, Collaboration, and Unconditional Love, not Competition and Winning.

Nobody in this T-Square is moving very fast, so except for Vesta moving out of Orb in a few weeks, this T-Square stays with us for a couple of months.

The Lilith-Chiron Cycle that’s reaching Opposition began in July 2010 at 1 Pisces, “In a crowded marketplace farmers and middlemen display a great variety of products.”  A Lilith-Chiron Cycle would be about creating Miracles by Trusting one’s Instincts.   The Eat Local movement and the proliferation of farmer’s markets comes to mind.

The Chiron-Chaos Cycle that’s reaching its Waning Square was Initiated in April 1976 at 28 Aries, “A large audience confronts the performer who disappointed its expectations.”  Chiron-Chaos Cycles would be about reaching into the Zero Point Field to pull out Miracle Rabbits that make insoluble problems dissolve.  The desmise of the Middle Class fits this Cycle perfectly.  The confrontation has been lacking because the audience is so frightened of losing its privilege and because the fascist performers control the media propaganda flow, convincing the audience that it’s their own damn fault.

The Lilith-Chaos Cycle that’s reaching its Waxing Square had its beginning in January 2013 at 15 Gemini, “Two Dutch children talking to each other, exchanging their knowledge.”  This is an interesting Cycle – pulling Yindependence out of the tophat when it’s least expected.  Since long ago the Dutch have made markets, and they’re still making the Political market in Europe.  Children implies some sort of innocence, or relative freedom from the established paradigm.  It’s Danish rather than Dutch, but I can’t help think of Peter Høeg’s novel Borderliners.

If we indeed focus our Attention on Letting Go of our Limiting Beliefs, a good deal of Grace awaits us this coming week.

Pluto makes a Trine-Sextile Bridge across the Lillith-to-Vesta-Chiron Opposition, and for the next week or so the Sun mirrors it, forming a Kite focused on Vesta-Chiron.  The Chiron-Vesta Initiation recall is Biquintile to the Jupiter-Juno Initiation – that is, the Expansion of our Consciousness arises through examining our Limiting Beliefs.

The Chiron-Vesta Initiation occurs May 13, the Jupiter-Juno Initiation May 16, and Lilith Opposes Chiron June 8.

A note about Conjunctions and Initiations.  If we have two planets “Tortoise” and “Hare” that rotate at different speeds, Tortoise more or less sits around waiting for Hare to catch up, since their track is circular.  So when we speak of their Conjunction, it’s a Hare-Tortoise Conjunction, as Hare catches up and passes Tortoise.  However, in a relative sense, Slow planets connote Wisdom, and Fast planets suggest Messengers.  A Conjunction Initiates a Cycle. 

At an Initiation, Tortoise represents the Guru, Hare the Initiate, and the Conjunction Shaktipat.  During the Cycle, the Initiate carries the Guru’s Teaching to the People.  So an Initiation is called a Tortoise-Hare Initiation, as Tortoise Initiates Hare.  So we refer to Faster-Slower Conjunctions and Slower-Faster Initiations, but they’re the same event.  The Conjunction sees the event as a moment, while the Initiation sees the event as the essence of a Cycle.  Think of the Conjunction as a noun and the Initiation as a verb.

Of course, Letting Go of our Limiting Beliefs is not normally a cognitive exercise, as our Limiting Beliefs have roots deep in both the Personal and Cultural Realms of the Unconscious.  So the Grace would lie in opportunities to become Conscious of our Limiting Beliefs.  Once a Belief arises into Consciousness, we can work to establish new Habits that counter the Belief.

For example, while researching material for the Error as Intuition post, I came across the Star Zosma, which sits behind a major planet at the top of a client’s chart.  In Brady’s Book of Fixed Stars, Bernadette says…

“Zosma … belongs to those whom the establishment, either directly or indirectly, makes powerless…  It is present in the chart of victims, of people who are abused by the system.”

Zosma symbolizes the place in Linear Time where the Patriarchy usurped Power from the Matriarchy, and hence the condition of those who are out of Power and vulnerable to persecution by the Powerful.

When I shared this information with my client, they were surprised by how relevant this was to their Life, and how the conceptualization had not risen into their Consciousness before.  They were initially bummed, Feeling it as a sort of Fate or Destiny.  When I spoke with them later, they had thought to Empathize with their perennial Victim, and had come to realize that it was part of their Mission to evolve through this Portal.

Have you had any surprise flashes of Insight in the last several days, that might be revealing Portals of your own Limiting Beliefs?  Visions of Heaven beyond the Gate, and/or Awareness of the bars on the Gate?  Repeating Patterns of Frustration in your Life?  If your Reaction to these was Discouragement, Empathize with your own perceived Limits.  Empathy works as its own device.  Once you Empathize, you can forget the whole Drama.  Later you’ll be inspired to PIAVA a new Pattern or two, but there’s nothing else to Do once you Empathize.  The Unconscious does the Transformation work for you.  When it’s ready for you to take the next step, it’ll tap you on the shoulder.

“Connection

“I’m spending just about every available moment these days in my garden. Not working, just being … being with the bunnies and the birds and the breezes, the sunlight and the stars, and all the slow dancing Green Folk.  I’ve felt for many months now that I access much more intelligence in these Presences, and in recent weeks have felt and leaned into my emotional Connection to them, and through them to All That Is.

“Insights from the Green Folk are beyond words.  Every day there is deepening and strengthening of feeling and relaxing into Relationship, a security and support I’ve longed for all my life at levels I didn’t even know I had levels.

“When I wander in my mind away from Connection, I feel fear and confusion; when I turn back from those Dark Paths I feel steady and knowing once again: not certain about anything, not knowing how even the next moment is going to unfold, but a deepening felt experience of what I’ve known intellectually for years: I’m not abandoned, have never been alone: I’m held (as is everyone) in the Very Heart of Being.  And no One expects me to know anything in advance: all that’s required is that I Participate with my Whole Being, that I bring All of Me to the Moment, and Respond.

“I’m learning not to walk down the Dark Paths in my mind anymore.  I know where they all lead: always the same places full of Paper Tigers and Bad Guesses about The Future.  So partly I’m bored with them finally; and partly they don’t scare me as much as they used to … daily their power weakens; and partly I’m becoming less and less willing to Entertain the Darkness.

“The Choice is becoming clearer and clearer, emotionally.  And it’s getting easier and easier to choose Connection … almost, almost to the point of why on this marvelous, beautiful Earth would I ever choose anything else?
