Who’s Who in the Sustainability Movement will speak in The Search for Sustainability, a 12-day free online series of documentary videos about “The imminent 911 global emergency of the health and sustainability of humanity and the planet.” Names I recognize include Doug Simons, Toby Hemenway, Paul Wheatley, Mike Adams, Sergei Boutenko, Gabriel Cousins, Marjory Wildcraft, plus many others I’m looking forward to meeting. The format is one video a day from 1 to 12 November, each online for 24 hours. Sign up at…
“September Was the Most Extreme Month in 136 Years of Heat Records. This new milestone follows the hottest summer on record, the hottest start to a year on record, the hottest 12 months on record, the hottest calendar year on record (2014) and the hottest decade on record.” — Bloomberg, 10/21/2015
The dwarf planet Ceres, the only dwarf planet between Mars and Jupiter, represents Sustainability – Ceres as in Cereal, Grain, Sustenance. All ’round the Globe, Ceres was Rising as the clock was striking midnight on 1/1/2000. “Rising” means “coming into Awareness” or “worn on the sleeve.” The dwarf planet Haumea is a “Plutoid,” hanging out with Pluto in the Reaches. Pele’s daughter, Haumea is a Fertility Goddess. We usually interpret the dwarf planet Haumea as Rebirth. While we’ve always held that Sustainability and its proactive complement Sustenance (eliminating the unnecessary) will be a major theme during the 21st Century, the presence of Haumea multiplies this interpretation exponentially, augurs optimism, and promises a whole new ballgame ahead of us.
Haumea Initiated Ceres on 19 January 2000 at 8 Libra, “A blazing fireplace in a deserted home.” Rudhyar interprets that to indicate that Spirit is always ready to welcome us Home. Of course the symbol brings to mind many metaphors for the behavior of Western European Culture, which is easily seen as tearing the singles off the roof in late Fall to heat the house.
Ceres-Haumea-Ascendant makes a Trine Bridge across the Nodal Axis in the 1/1/2000 chart, and Venus-Vesta (Aligning Values and Unconscious Beliefs) makes another, forming a Double Bridge of three Sextiles across the Nodes – extremely fortuitous. Venus-Vesta are joined by dwarf planets Ixion (our Pathological Genius) and Quaoar (Laws the Promote Survival). The Initiations:
- Vesta-Venus (Aligning Values and Beliefs, 10 Sagittarius, “A tropical representation of a golden-haired Goddess of Opportunity“)
- Ixion-Venus (Embracing our Pathological Genius , 5 Sagittarius, “An old Owl sits alone on the branch of a large Tree“)
- Ixion-Vesta (Pathological Unconscious Beliefs, also 5 Sagittarius)
- Quaoar-Venus (Discipline of Walking in Beauty, 8 Sagittarius, “Within the depths of the Earth new elements are being formed“)
- Quaoar-Vesta (Beliefs that we’ll Die if certain criteria aren’t met, also 8 Sagittarius)
The Venus Cycles span about a year, the Vesta Cycles about four years, but here at the Birth of the Century, they all apply for a hundred years.
We’re Blessed with a “Golden Opportunity” to Align our Unconscious Beliefs with our Values in this Century. That’ll be very hard to do without bringing our Beliefs into Consciousness, where they can be reviewed for consistency with the edicts of our Heart. We see loads of wannabe Politicians trying to align their spoken Values with their Unconscious Prejudices, with laughable results. It only works that way among the small number of peers who share your Prejudice, unless a Master Hater can persuade everyone to accept the same scapegoat. History is full of those, but modern Communications, if they aren’t captured by the Power Class, may ameliorate this. Hate may work in a country like the US, where the medium of propaganda is owned by Money and where the tyranny of the majority is baked into the Political system, but not for long; Money is too smart to cut off potential customers. This may be why the Corporations are forming their own supranational governments (WTO, NAFTA, TPP, et al.), to bypass civil government strategies that have been shattered by modern Communication and the way they permit Extremists to find one another easily.
Part of Aligning our Unconscious Beliefs with our Heart requires that we get in touch with and honor the portion of our Pathological Genius which derives from our Spiritual Mission, and differentiate it from the portion that derives from our Wounds. Both portions supersede civil and military rules, one supporting Progress and the other Depravity. We’re likely to encounter a lot of both as each of us wrestles with these malevolent Demons, benevolent Daemons, and shining Diamonds, and we try to pry them away from the Archetypes that have captured them. There may be four corps of people who Support, Obfuscate, or flee from these processes; people who Identify with superficially positive goals but care more about process than result (Zealots of various stripes), folks who Identify with Fear and refuse to allow alternatives to their Beliefs (such as the Medical Cartel), people who are Motivated by Fear to try to be Invisible (many of whom have become refugees from Conflict or Poverty), people who try to stand up and Speak Truth (many of whom will get shot).
Ixion and Quaoar have very similar orbits, and while Ixion is only three and a quarter degrees short of Quaoar on 1/1/2000, it takes until 2037 for Ixion to catch up to Quaoar. So we have to simply consider their Relationship (the Laws within which our Pathological Genius must operate) to be In the Void. It appears that Ixion has been Balsamic to Quaoar since at least as far back as the Swiss Ephemeris tracks them. Which means that…
There are no Limits or Rules that our Pathological Genius must follow, nor anyone else’s Pathological Genius. In a couple of decades may find that our cage indeed has bars, but right now it’s the “Wild West” as far as Creativity goes. We could even attribute the endemic and ridiculous Terror of Death to this relationship, as a Reaction to the “fact” that, Unconsciously, we see no reason why we can’t Live forever. Which of course is what our Consciousness does; it’s just that most Hupers Identify with their Body (or Job or Wealth or …) rather than with their Timeless Spirit. Maybe we’ll figure that out by 2037.
These two Trine Bridges, Ceres-Haumea-Ascendant and Venus-Vesta-Ixion-Quaoar, Bridge and ameliorate not only the Nodal Axis, but also the T-Square formed by Centaur and dwarf planet Pholus (Taking Full Responsibility), which Squares the Nodes.
The Challenge to Earth and Hupers in the 21st Century is to Take Full Responsibility for the Past and Future. That means being Willing to Heal our Wounds from the Past, and being Willing to Respond to the Challenges presented by the Future. This is not a question of Ability, that’s clearly there. It’s purely a question of Willingness, a question of whether Humanity is Willing to Let Go of Individual gain for the sake of Collective Survival. The growing Awareness that Sustainability is not optional, and the Examination of disparities between our Values and our Unconscious Beliefs, are both tools to make that course easier.
