What She Said Redux

January 1, 2017

Another important message, from someone whom I consider to be my First Teacher…

http://www.thewhiterose.org/index.php4#seasonalmessage

One of the things she taught me: Truth is Different for each of us because Truth resides in the Heart.  She also used to say that “your own Truth goes right through you,” meaning that a few seconds later you are unable to repeat it; it just doesn’t register in your Memory.  Like asking a Fish about Water I guess.  

While it may be useful, getting our Truth written down so we can memorize it doesn’t provide the kind of Self-Knowledge we’ need; our Truth is usually Paradoxical, residing far beyond the Ego’s Desire to Collect self-congratulatory aphorisms.  We Learn to Embrace Paradox in Mystery School.  Our current Mystery School, around the Relationship between our Self-Sovereignty and the Recognition of the Truth of our Fear, peaks on 1 January 2017.

We’re referring to the Lilith-Sedna/Aletheia Yin Gate that we’ve been talking about, embedded in the Abandoned Genius Recovery Golden Rectangle (Saturn-Ixion-Juno-Nemesis Sextile Jupiter-Haumea Trine Chaos Sextile Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne)  The Golden Rectangle will be with us well into February, but the Lilith-Sedna Yin Gate fades near the end of January, to be replaced a few days later by several weeks of another Yin Gate, featuring Sappho-Klotho and Sedna-Aletheia.  

That second Yin Gate will be about Restructuring a new Ego/Life/Rebirth around Self-Love, particularly Self-Love when we’re in Fear.  Like so…  

http://danielscranton.com/acceptance-leads-to-ascension-%E2%88%9Ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

When we’re Honest with ourself about Fear, we can be Grounded, Breathing, and in Fear at the same time – an experience which you’d probably not label as Fear in the sense you’re used to.  In addition to the Wonderings that make up a Yin Gate, Chiron forms a Trine Bridge across this Opposition – “You poor Sweetheart, you’re in Fear, aren’t you.”  

The Wonderings in the current Yin Gate are something like…

  • I Wonder what Self-Sovereignty will Feel like in an Unlimited Reality (Lilith Quincunx Chaos).
  • I Wonder how I can resist the Cultural Pressure to squelch my Self-Sovereignty when I’m fully in my Yintegrity (Lilith Quincunx Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne).
  • With the scope of my Rebirth Expanding so fast, I Wonder how I’ll handle the Fear (Jupiter-Haumea Quincunx Sedna-Aletheia).
  • When my Abandoned Genius becomes The Most Important Thing to me and my Olde Ego bursts because of the huge quantity of New Information being Downloaded, I Wonder how I can Embrace the inevitable Fear (Saturn-Ixion-Juno-Nemesis Quincunx Sedna-Aletheia).

The Wonderings in the new Yin Gate will be more like…

  • I Wonder how I’ll be able to Manifest Self-Love while lacking anchors in an Unlimited Reality (Sappho-Klotho Quincunx Chaos).
  • I’m so Habituated to suppressing my Yintegrity that I Wonder whether I can Allow myself to Let Go of All of my Masks (Sappho-Klotho Quincunx Uranus-Eris-Ceres-Mnemosyne).
  • With the scope of my Rebirth Expanding so fast, I Wonder how I’ll handle the Fear (Jupiter-Haumea Quincunx Sedna-Aletheia).
  • When my Abandoned Genius becomes The Most Important Thing to me and my Olde Ego bursts because of the huge quantity of New Information being Downloaded, I Wonder how I can Embrace the inevitable Fear (Saturn-Ixion-Juno-Nemesis Quincunx Sedna-Aletheia).

 

A partial timeline for these Adventures…

  • 27 December: Saturn Initiates Nemesis (The Most Important Thing is Ego Death) at 21 Sagittarius (Using Imagination to Transcend Mundane Physical and Emotional “Realities”)
  • 6 January: Ixion Initiates Nemesis (Embracing the probably-Chronic Traumas that Isolated our Abandoned Genius) at 25 Sagittarius (Play despite apparent handicaps)
  • 7 January: Grand Quintile connecting Saturn-Ixion-Juno-Nemesis to Venus-Pallas-South Node to Moon to Vesta to Hopi
  • 9 January: Ixion Stationary Direct 23 Aries 
  • 11 January: Saturn Initiates Juno (A Searching and Fearless Inventory of our Olde Ego) at 23 Sagittarius (Learning the Fundamentals of a New Culture)
  • 12 January: Almost-Grand Quintile connecting Saturn-Ixion-Juno-Nemesis to Pallas-South Node to Moon-Vesta to Hopi
  • 17 January: Aletheia Stationary Direct 26 Taurus
  • 19 January: Ixion Initiates Juno (Becoming Conscious of Who We Must Become) at 26 Sagittarius (Trusting our Guides)
  • 22 January: Haumea Stationary Retrograde 25 Libra
  • 27 January: Sappho Conjunct Klotho, 22 Scorpio Opposite Sedna-Aletheia 
  • 15 February: Ixion Initiates Saturn (The Most Important Thing is Recognizing the Imperative of Acknowledging our Abandoned Genius) at 26 Sagittarius

Because their orbit lengths are so similar, Sappho-Klotho and Juno-Nemesis travel together for several years, where the distance between them is more about which side of the Sun the Earth is on, than about how much their Longitudes differ.  The Nemesis-Juno Initiation occurred in August 2015, with an Exposition in September 2016 and the Confidence-Builder in April 2019.  The Klotho-Sappho Initiation occurred in November 2014, an Exposition in December 2015, and the Confidence-Builder in January 2017.

Remember Both/And; Truth is Different for each of us because Truth resides in the Heart, not in the mind’s Duality.  Even if this is not your Truth, it may be useful to you, as all New Perspectives are.  New Perspectives may help you Let Go of Judgment of Others, they may help you Let Go of Unconscious Limiting Beliefs, and they may Grow Corn for you in Unusual or Unexpected Circumstances.  Either/Or is always Politics; Spirit is Both/And.

Portal 18.10 Part 1

October 18, 2016

You can find a picture of the Geometry of a Yin Gate at…

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2014/06/13/full-moon-yin-gate-and-portal-7-5-15/

Yin Gate is an Initiation into the Goddess’s Mystery School.  In a Mystery School we’re forced to Learn to hold contradictory Perspectives at the same time, because to make any Sense out of the Reality we’re being shown, we have to replace the Concept of Contradiction with the Concept of Paradox.  In a Yin Gate we’re forced out of the Logical “Left Brain” and into the Relational “Right Brain.”  What we Encounter does not follow the rules of Logic.  It follow the rules of Relationship.

So what are the rules of Relationship?  Well, we know one of them already; the Universe does not operate under Either/Or, it operates under Both/And.  When the Red Pill gives you Heads and the White Pill gives you Tails, you have to move to The Coin.  It’s not always so obvious as that.  It’s more often like Encountering the Gollum and having to solve his Riddles.  It’s the classic case of needing to find a New Perspective that can Relate the apparent incompatibilities that we have Encountered to one another.  

  • Pause a minute and consider your recent Experiences.  Does this make them any less incomprehensible?

Or the Alternative, which is simply Accepting the Paradox as it is.  This is actually the better course, because we’re no longer forcing Reality into our little intellectual boxes, but letting the Universe be larger than mind.  Universe and Consciousness are synonymous, but we’ve been weaned on the Propaganda that mind is larger than Universe, that mind can successfully constrain the Universe into a series of equations; this is Propaganda because it’s sold to us as if it were the Only Truth.  In fact, mind is a small subset of Consciousness.

Acceptance of Paradox is very similar to Acceptance of Confusion as an Emotion rather than a Riddle that needs to be solved intellectually.  Without Accepting Confusion exactly as it is, we are unable to Grow our Consciousness Lovingly and Gently.  We could suggest that the necessity for Growth is endemic, and that without Loving and Gentle Release it backs up until Trauma forces us to Grow.  I don’t see that as a property of the Universe.  It’s an idea, a Perspective.  If it helps you understand your Past, then it’s useful.  If it motivates you to Embrace Confusion as it is, then it’s useful.

Acceptance of Paradox is the process by which Knowledge becomes Wisdom, engendering Intuition, and Trust of it.  You’ve been taught that Tolkien’s Hobbit tales are a classic Hero’s Journey.  But seriously now, what Reward does the Hero receive?  Self-Confidence and Idolization – Puffery for the Ego, easily blocking Acceptance of Confusion.  A fitting reward for the Age of Aries, but that was two Millennia ago.  For the Age of Aquarius or even the Age of Pisces, Self-Confidence can be a hollow Reward, especially if it isn’t matched by Self-Knowledge.  But then, The Fool represents Courage, doesn’t it.  The Hobbit tales are actually a Yin Gate.

  • What other rules of Relationship do you routinely use in your own Life?

In any Yin Gate the emphasis is strongly on the Opposition in the center, the one with the two back-to-back green Arrowheads or Fingers of God, which literally signify “Pay Attention!

At 11am PDT on 18 November, asteroid Nemesis (Epiphanies about Self-Sabotage) Conjoins asteroid Juno (the Edges of our Consciousness) at one end of the central Opposition in our current Yin Gate.  This is 24 Scorpio, where the recent Nova appeared ( http://phys.org/news/2016-09-bright-binocular-nova-lupus.html ).  It’s not an Initiation; Nemesis and Juno have met before on their current Cycle.  The other end of the central Opposition is occupied by Sedna, symbolizing Actions Taken out of Panic.

So we could say that the basic Energy embedded in this Portal is about Becoming Aware of the triggers that move us toward Panic and cause us to Act in ways that do not further our best interests.  When you apply this filter to your recent Experience, does it generate any useful Insight?

The remainder of the Yin Gate should help us understand more about this basic Energy.  This is 22-26 Degrees, the place where we’re starting Version 4.0 of our current Big Project, and beginning to adapt it to Community.  We’ve been working very intensely in this space for a while now, and it will save our Lives over the next four years.  Without the green Arrowheads, a Yin Gate would “just” be a Golden Rectangle (“just” because a Golden Rectangle represents profound Grace), which is the blue box in the picture.  A Golden Rectangle provides Grace around the two Oppositions – the red “X” between the corners of the blue box.

We know these two Oppositions well.  One of them is about the Emergence of a Deeper version of our True Self, symbolized by dwarf planet Haumea (Rebirth) Opposing Uranus (our Soul Self) and Eris (Truthtelling).  This is the same axis that Saturday’s Full Moon sat upon, which is a very Strong Affirmation.  While the Moon has moved on, the Sun is still very near Haumea.

The other Opposition is about the Recovery of our Hidden Genius, which may require that we Remember and Let Go Of the Trauma that forced it to Hide, as Ixion (our Abandoned Unique Genius) and Pholus (Being Fully Responsible To) Oppose Chaos (Unlimited Potential) and asteroid Veritas (Truth).  The Golden Rectangle tells us that these two processes are Complementing one another, each making the other Easier.

This second Opposition is Lit Up further by being one axis of the Grand Cross we spoke of at length in Portal 13.10.  The Opposition that Squares the Hidden-Genius axis is the one between Chiron (Despair and Miracle) and Hopi (Respect for All Things) – Embracing our Projections.

So, Bottom Line, this Portal is about Becoming Conscious of our “Stops” – the barriers in our Psyche which Stop us from Activating our Unique Genius and Living Authentically.  Once they’re Conscious, we can Change them.  The essence of those green Arrowheads is Curiosity.  “I Wonder how this will Unfold.” – not a Question that seeks an Answer.   Wonder as in Awe.  “Great Spirit, please Lovingly and Gently Open my Eyes to the Miracles that will Unfold here.”

*Lots* Going On 1

October 5, 2016

Where to start?

(1) With the big Jupiter Septile Yod I guess.  It’s with us from around 1 October through 7 October.  Remember last week’s Magic Storm?  That was about one version of what we call “Magic” – the Miracle of Timing.  It’s one of the greatest Blessings that follow from developing your Intuition.  You can spend years (or Lifetimes) trying to do something without success, when the Timing isn’t right.  Then, when the Timing is right, you can accomplish it in a Heartbeat.  

Don Juan was always trying to teach Castaneda to “Save his Power,” and this is what he meant – don’t waste your Energy when the Timing isn’t right.  This is the Seventh Harmonic; planets one seventh of the way ’round the Zodiac from one another, or two or three sevenths.  How do we know when the Timing is right?  Our Intuition tells us, but we have to Listen to it and not let the noisy mind overrule it because it would be hard to defend in a debate.  The Moon, in its esoteric Meaning of Instinct and Authenticity, also plays a big role.

Look for places where you’re wasting Energy fretting about not doing something that your Shoulds are nagging about, when the Timing isn’t right, and places where you feel like you’re on a treadmill.  Watch for things that happen in a flash when you expected them to take forever.  We’re Learning here about the Held Emotions and Other People’s Expectations (such as Believing we have to explain ourself) that block us from Trusting our Intuition implicitly, instantly, and unquestioningly.

This next itemdddd deserves a long essay of its own, but I don’t have time right now, so I’ll be “brief”…  

(2) As we’ve discussed at length, we’re being Asked in no uncertain terms to take Responsibility to Embrace the Brilliance, Gorgeousness, Talent, and Fabulosity of the Truth of our Abandoned Genius.  Because the Programming that forced us to Abandon this part of ourself was Abusive, we have to work through a great deal of Pain to get to this Responsibility.  

(3) Until around 10 October, we’re Gifted with unusual Ease in this task.  You definitely want to take advantage of this.  How?  The easiest way is Self-Empathy – and being constantly Watchful for whatever you’re Feeling in the Present Moment…  

  • Anger?  Any Self-Judgment there?  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re questioning your Right to Self-Protection, aren’t you.”  
  • Worry?  Undifferentiated Unease?  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Anxious, aren’t you.”  
  • Not sure what’s going on?  Trying to figure it out mentally?  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Confused, aren’t you.”  

Wait – Confusion’s the first sign of Growth, right?  Hooray, the Timing is Right to Celebrate!

(4) It gets better.  Surrendering to our Rebirth (which may of course Feel like Ego Death), and Surrendering to the Unknown (which is always Scary), will unleash tremendous Grace on not only the Challenge of Letting Go of our Limiting Programming, but also on any unfinished elements of our many-year task of Removing our Masks and becoming more Authentic to Who We Really Are.  That part is Given to us, all we need to do is stop Resisting it.  

We do have to add one Energy on our own, however, to make it all work Effortlessly.  That Energy is Bravery and Persistence.  If we’re Conscious of our Fear of Death and the Unknown, we can Tap Out the Overwhelm, Locate it in our Bodies, Warm it, Soften around it, Love it where it is, and Breathe into it.  Considering what’s Going On, this will be a Big Order, not because it’s so difficult to Tap or Warm or Breathe, but because what we Fear is so Big that we can’t see it.

We’re looking at our Relationships, our Economic Situation, our Health, our Well-Being, our Anxiety, our Emotions – everything facing and surrounding us.  But what’s Going On is Bigger than that.  A lot Bigger.  Imagine a cloud of Darkness surrounding your House, then your Neighborhood, then your Town, your County, your Region, your Country, your Continent, your Planet, your Solar System, your Galaxy.  That’s what we are Unconsciously Fearing here, and for most of us, it’s not Conscious.  Once we’re Conscious of it, we can Tap Out the Overwhelm, Locate it in our Bod, Love it, Breathe into it.

That part’s “easy,” once we get Conscious of our Fear of Transformation, and find the Courage and Persistence to find the Light Switch that’s hidden within All That Darkness somewhere, and pull it.  It’s Intimidating, but the Light that’s Behind the Sun is far more immense.  Bruce Cockburn said it well half a century ago…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5fiawMknm0

So does Lisa Rising Berry, who advises us that “We have been taught to fear Dark energy, but it is the source of all creation,” at…

https://lisarisingberry.wordpress.com/2016/10/05/azoth-energy-coming-to-fruition-much-will-be-purified-and-transformed/

It’s a longer version than Bruce’s, but worthwhile, as she ties it in to many ancient and recent traditions, which, remarkably, we can and will match to what’s Going On in the sky now.

Expansion, recall, is one of the many obscure variations of PIAVA.  Find the Light Behind the Sun by Grounding yourself, then move your Consciousness up and out through the center of the top of your Head till you Connect to the Light.

(5-11) We’ll translate these into English soon.

(1) The Septile Yod points at Jupiter (Expansion) from a base of the Waxing Septile from Ceres (Sustainability) to the Conjunction between Neptune (Culture, Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity) and the South Node (Held Emotion and Hidden Skills).

(2) We’re in the midst of a long-lived Chiron (Despair and Miracle) T-Square (Mastery through Challenge) on a base of the Opposition between Pholus-Ixion (Responsibility-Genius) and dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential), the latter joined by asteroid Veritas (Truth).  

(3) Asteroid Karma (Inertia) has come into a Sextile to Haumea (Rebirth), with Chiron at the Far Midpoint.  That creates a Chiron Diamond Star (Difficult Challenge Made Easier) across the Chiron T-Square, as both Haumea and Karma form Trine Bridges across the T-Square, in the form of a “bowl of Grace” under it.

(4) Asteroid Karma and Ixion-Pholus join with Uranus-Eris (Removing our Masks, Yintegrity) to form a Grand Trine, a Haumea Kite, and a Chaos-Veritas Kite, leaving one Vacancy to Create a Grand Sextile.  The Vacancy is 23 Capricorn, which is about Bravery in Combat.  Capricorn 23 is also the location of the January 2020 Pluto-Saturn Initiation.

All these Goings On (#2-5), as has often been the case recently, are in 22-25 of their respective Signs. The mid-October (and all month) Nemesis-Juno Conjunction ( https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/09/30/nemesis/ ) is in the same range, at 24 Scorpio, as is the Nova in the Constellation Lupus.

Thanks to Eliza Ayres for leading us to Lisa’s post – https://bluedragonjournal.com/2016/10/05/lisa-rising-berry-azoth-energy-coming-to-fruition/

(5) By around 10 October, Karma breaks out of the Diamond Star and Grand Trine, but asteroid Hopi (Respect for all Things) moves into Opposition to Chiron, completing the Grand Cross till around 20 October.  The Grand Cross will still be Trine-Bridged by a Golden Rectangle and Quincunx-Bridged by Haumea and Uranus-Eris.  

The trace of our previous Bravery Vacancy will still make a Grand Trine with Haumea and Chaos, and Kites pointing to Uranus-Eris and Ixion-Pholus.

(6) We have two Initiations today (5 October).  Normally we’d cast Initiations as the centerpiece of our Interpretations – their relegation to footnotes shows how Big (#1-4) are.

First, Quaoar (Survival) Initiates Moira (Fate), which sounds pretty heavy.  The Degree is 28 Sagittarius, an old bridge still in use, and of course the Galactic Center, which is a pretty old bridge all right.

(7) Second, Lilith (Yindependence) Initiates Venus (Values) – the Blue Kachina that Lisa mentions, a significant milestone on our path toward the Yang Feminine Energy that we expect to replace the Patriarchy.  It occurs at 16 Scorpio, which symbolizes a girl breaking into a smile.  Mid-Scorpio is one of the four “Horsepersons of the Apocalyse” or Power Points of the Zodiac.

(8) The Red Kachina that Lisa mentions is found in the Initiations of Mars (Energy, Action) by Hylonome (Grieving the Disattachment from an Archetype) and Chariklo (Charm and Grace)…

First, Hylonome-Mars 29 September in 2 Capricorn, three Gothic Rose windows, one damaged by war.

(9) Second, Chariklo-Mars 3 October in 4 Capricorn, outfitting a large canoe.

(10) On 8 October, Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) and OR10 (Irruptions from the Deep Unconscious) Conjoin.  This is a long-term, slow-moving astroevent, and can be blamed for much of our Pain, as we become Aware of and Let Go of old Abuse.  See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/10/02/trigger-warnings/ .

(11) At our mid-month Yin-Gate Nemesis-Juno Conjunction (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/09/30/nemesis/ ), Mars will be Initiated by Pluto (Transformation, aka Trance-reFormation), which is Opposing Sirius, which Lisa mentions in regard to the Hopi Prophesies.

Triggers Already

October 1, 2016

I’ve already Received an Insight about Guilt Triggers!  I Procrastinate, and often feel Guilty about putting something off.  Yet many times, when I finally get around to doing what I’ve been deprioritizing, I usually discover that my Timing turns out to be perfect.  

And what did we Learn last week, in our Magic Storm, about the Seventh Harmonic?  That we could use our Energy so much more Effectively by Acting in the precise moment when the Time is Right.

So I Tap on it.  How off-Balance do I Feel, 1-10?  About 6.  “Even though I Feel Guilty about putting that off, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself.”  Tapping that out once brings me down to 2 or 3.  A second pass brings me to my Fear of negative consequences.  That’s more alarming, about a 7.

“Even though I Fear something bad will happen, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself.”  Now I Feel neutral, but am I ready to PIAVA the Outcome I Want?  Doesn’t Feel quite right yet.  What else is up?  Well, I’m still not sure that the negative consequences I Fear won’t occur.  Do I need to Change my plans for the day and Attend to this?

That brings me to the Realization that I’m in Doubt again.  I was in Doubt earlier this morning, and Asked for Clarity, and it worked.  But wait, Doubt is a form of Confusion, isn’t it, and Confusion is the first sign of Growth in Consciousness – just what Juno Delivers on the average day – if we don’t try to overpower it intellectually.  

Okay, so now I’m more comfortable Feeling Doubt.  Let’s get some Food.  Isn’t that Karma Repair step #1?  (Actually, Hydration would make a better #1, but we can do that too.)  And one of those Ocho Dark Coffee bars, with a cup of Vitamin C, a Pycnogenol cap, and a Gymnema to Neutralize the Sugar…

Okay, Feeling more “even.”  Now, can I Imagine myself into the Future and Easily Visualize the final step of the Outcome I Want?  Yes!!  

So we’ll consider that interlude an “OR10 (Non-Present-Moment) Moment,” uptick the priority of what I was putting off, make a note to Recognize Procrastination as a doorway to the Underwhere, PIAVA a Fun and Effortless day, and we’re off!

Another View

September 30, 2016

Someone else seems to take a similar view of Nemesis…

Nemesis

September 30, 2016

Nemesis.  The word evokes images of Downfall, weakness, Vulnerability, Achille’s Tendon.  The Goddess was a punisher of scofflaws.  But the asteroid is Coming into our Consciousness in a big way during October, we need to find a way to turn those Negatives around.  

Astrology shows us Dimensions, not Directions.  If someone has cast an Energy as Permanently sitting on one end of a Dimension, as an Either/Or, we know we’re looking at Political Programming.  When we unwind Programming, the result is Liberation, Freedom from Slavery to an Archetype.  So, how do we unwind this Lovely Goddess?

Let’s start with the Programmers, the Greeks.  What do we know about the Greeks?  That they wrote the Guidebook for the Patriarchy.  Nemesis was their Enforcer.  She punished anyone who tried to behave as if they were a God or Goddess.  Anyone who demonstrated their Brilliance, Gorgeousness, Talent, and Fabulosity perhaps?  

So yes, Pride is often a point of weakness.  But what if we weren’t talking about Pride.  Anyone have Significant Adults in their Childhood who didn’t “advise them against” – or punish them for – Pride?  Pride has its chin in the air.  What if we accepted our Brilliance, Gorgeousness, Talent, and Fabulosity with a level chin, simply as a fact of Life.  

What if we arrived at our BGTF not through Competition or thinking ourself to be Better Than, but through our Right to Be.  What if we could be BGTF and so could everyone else.  Wow, a Team of Superstars but without the Competition!  Hard to Imagine, eh?  Well, we need to start Stretching.  Competition is part and parcel of the Patriarchy, and the Patriarchy is dying.

Juno was Zeus’s (Jupiter’s) wife.  She was of a Jealous temperament, and Zeus was not the least interested in monogamy.  He was the Head God, for god’s sake.  He defined Yintegrity.  For himself, not for others.  A poster child for Competition, Juno was always turning her rivals to Stone.  Competition, Jealousy, Merging with her Lover, this is an Archetype.  

By reducing the Matriarch from Queen to Archetype, the dominance of the Patriarchy was complete.  Competition among males was the pinnacle of Heroism (this was the Age of Aries, after all, the Age of Heroes) – we’re still dancing this tune in the Olympics.  Competition among Females was degenerate.  In Truth, it is Competition itself that’s degenerate.

That’s one way to recast the Story anyway.  We think of the asteroid Juno as symbolizing the Edges of Consciousness, that which is Coming into Awareness.  Let’s try interpreting asteroid Nemesis as whatever – Guilt, Fear, Shame – causes us to try to Disguise or Hide our Brilliance, Gorgeousness, Talent, and Fabulosity.  She can be the bushel basket that we hide our Light under.

But let’s take her a step further.  She can symbolize the lifting of the bushel basket that we hide our Brilliance, Gorgeousness, Talent, and Fabulosity under.  When we bring our Reticence into Consciousness, we no longer need to hide our BGTF.

Immediately what comes to mind is the situation where I’m ensconced in my BGTF, and someone Doubts me.  They don’t even have to Challenge me.  They can Doubt me with a glance.  They can sneeze and I might interpret it as a Doubt!  Well, we aren’t talking about situations where we’re faking it till we make it.  I’ve been in plenty of those, and they never work.

We’re talking about situations where we simply don’t question our own Competence, because we know we’re Competent.  In that arena.  We don’t even need to get Defensive.  I’ve been there, too, and it always Opens doors.  Not our BS, but our BGTF.  Not our Pride, but our Competence.  Not to Compete, but to  work toward a common Goal with a Team of Entities who are all Conscious of their BGTF.  Where we can hand off a task to someone better at that task if they’re Open, and where we can back one another up rather than stab one another in the back.

Sound reasonable?  Sounds a lot like what Genia Pauli Haddon describes in her book Body Metaphors: Releasing God-Feminine in Us All, where she’s describing the Yang-Feminine phase that she expects to follow the imminent demise of the Yang-Masculine Patriarchy that in turn followed the Yin-Feminine Matriarchy.

At any rate, we’ll all get an excellent Opportunity to study Nemesis, as she and Juno dance together all month.  They travel at almost the same speed – 4.36 years for Juno and 4.56 years for Nemesis – so it would take a lot of work just to figure out who’s Initiating whom.  Suffice it to say that on 18 October they’re Conjunct, at 5pm PDT.  They were also Conjunct in April 2015.

Since Nemesis is the slower planet it would be Nemesis that Initiates Juno, but we don’t know when that first happened in this Cycle, so we’ll just call this an Exposition – we’re Learning More about how they Interact with one another in our Psyche.  It should be interesting.  

Today Nemesis is approaching Juno from behind, and they’re three-quarters of a Degree apart, well within one Degree of Sensitivity.  They’re within one Degree of each other from 26 September till 11 November.

Jack Rosenberg, in Body, Self, and Soul: Sustaining Integration, pointed out that when the Personality Fragments we’re like Humpty Dumpty.  If we try to do anything from a Fragmented state, we’ll only screw it up.  He proposes that we need to Stop everything we’re doing, and put the Personality back together again before we do anything else.  That’s excellent advice.

This month we may be able to Discern what it is that Triggers the disintegration of our Self-Love, our BGTF.  Having Learned the Trigger or Triggers, we can watch to see what comes just before the Trigger, and Stop at that point, then use our Tools – Cancel, Neutralize, Upgrade; Poor Sweetheart; Tapping; PIAVA; and the like – to avoid Taking the Great Fall.

“Ganeshi, please Remove All Obstacles to my Learning to Stay in Self-Love All of the Time” might be a good way to start our October.  

With all of our recent Sappho-Jupiter-Makemake and New Moon work, this is starting to look like a Movement.

We’ll talk about the 18 October chart soon.  The Conjunction sits at the head of a Yin Gate, which is pretty exciting.  It’s also at 24 Degrees of Scorpio, which is where much of the Action has been occurring for several years now.  In their respective Signs, Uranus-Eris, Sedna, Chaos-Veritas, Hopi, Sun-Haumea, Ixion-Pholus, and Chiron are all within a few Degrees of 24.

And if my RA-to-Tropical Zodiac conversion is correct, 24 Scorpio is also the location of the Nova that appeared a few days ago.  Turns out astronomers are calling it a “16-kt Assassin” – a Nemesis for the Ego, perhaps…

http://phys.org/news/2016-09-bright-binocular-nova-lupus.html 

Star of Wonder, Star of Night, Star with Royal Beauty Bright.  It may yet grow into a 24-kt Assassin of our Self-Meh Ego!
