Okay, here’s that chance to rest we’ve been wishing for. Too late for some of us, I know, but hang on, and take a Breather while you can. Our next Big Event isn’t till 17 January.
Unfortunately it’s a Station, so we’ll be Feeling it in advance, probably starting about now, but at least it’s just one Station – there are three stations the week after that! The planet that’s Standing Still (Strong) is asteroid Aletheia, which symbolizes Truth. Other than a test of our Integrity, that wouldn’t seem too mean, but it’s Conjunct Sedna (Fear) and one of the Drivers for the Yin Gate that’s demanding that we get Honest about our Unconscious Fears.
So expect some Tests this weekend. Unless you’re in a Committed Relationship you want to keep, you owe nothing to anybody who wants to trap you in an Untruth. That’s someone trying to Bully and Manipulate you. Eighty percent of the time the issue isn’t that you’re being Untrue to yourself, it’s that you aren’t demonstrating the sort of Truth that the other person wants from you. If it ain’t Your Truth, it ain’t the Truth. The Untruth here is that you’re trying to maintain a Relationship with a Manipulative Bully, when your boots were made for walking. Sooner is better than later; you can’t afford it in this Energy Province.
The other twenty percent of the time, their Intuition is telling them that you’re being Incongruous, and you are. This a a valuable Insight into your Unconscious Fears, and one you don’t want to pass up. The hard part – Discerning the 20% Intuition from the 80% Manipulation. Denial is your birthright. You don’t need to get Honest to please anyone else. But you want to take every Opportunity to get Honest with yourself, and it’s probably your Unconscious Fears that are demanding a masquerade. Meditate on it.
Don’t let the Mind’s helicopter trips seduce you into Either/Ors. PIAVA Clarity, and don’t get into the “right or wrong” trap; It Is What It Is. If there’s any sense in which their Challenges apply to you, by all means take advantage of the Insight. Then walk.
Unless they introduce their Intuition as a polite Question or Wondering rather than a demanding accusation. Many Great Relationships are based on mutually assisting one another’s Self-Growth. But not as an Ego Contest – those are destructive to our Self-Sovereignty (promoting which is issue number #1 this month) and to our Self-Love (promoting which is issue number #1 next month, and you can start early).
Now, irrespective of other people’s opinions, PIAVAing to touch the Edges of your Unconscious Fears, so you can Tap them Out and Poor-Sweetheart them, will serve you well. If they don’t pop right up, Change the Subject, what a bit, and then Pay Attention. We’re running out of time for Embracing the Truth of our Unconscious Fears, and it’s critically Important Work for the Future. No Pressure.
Oh, and there’s also an Initiation on 17 January. We usually Feel Initiations early too. So maybe we won’t get that much time to rest, but Friday the 13th falls on a Friday this month, so you can at least take that day to Relax. The Initiation is Chiron-Mars, which isn’t usually considered Max Fun. We can read Mars-Chiron as Active Despair, and Passive Despair is quite enough. Some of us may even find Active Despair in discovering the Truth of our Unconscious Fears. So even on Friday the 13th we need to be Proactive with our Poor-Sweethearts.
“You poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Despair, aren’t you.” We’ve gone over this a hundred times, but we’ll do it again (you could be a new reader after all).
- “I am Discouraged” literally means that I – my Identity – am Discouragement. I be Eeyore.
- “I Feel Discouraged” literally means that I am an Observer of my Emotions – much healthier!
- And “You poor Sweetheart, your Feeling Despair, aren’t you,” said to myself, literally means that I am Feeling Compassion for myself.
Big shift, from Discouragement to Compassion. Don’t pass up the Opportunity.
Despair results from being in a dead end alley in your Beliefs and Thoughts, where there are no workable alternatives. Once your Self-Empathy shifts you to Compassion, you’re in a very different set of Beliefs and Thoughts, a very different Reality, one in which – relative to your Despair Perspective – Miracles are possible.
Once you get to Compassion, you can Ask yourself if any part of your earlier Discouragement was linked to any Unconscious Fears. If you succeed in rooting one out of hiding, and you can take yourself from “I’m Scared” to “I Feel Scared” to “You poor Sweetheart, your Feeling Scared, aren’t you.” you get an A-plus on the Test.
If “I’m Scared” happens in your Physiology and not just in your Observation, add Tapping ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4 if you’re new here). Alternating between Tapping and Poor-Sweethearting works wonders. Measure your Emotional Discomfort before and after Tapping (scale of 1 to 10), so you know it’s working or not. If not, do it again.
By the way, if you’re Scared or Discouraged by Physical symptoms, try Tapping directly on them. “Even though my back hurts, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself.” “Even though I’m Scared that might be skin cancer, I deeply and completely Love and Accept myself.” It often works.
The Chiron-Mars Initiation is at 22 Pisces, “A prophet carrying tablets of the new law is walking down the slopes of the Mount.” Ain’t that the Truth; I hope you’ve noticed that there a new sheriff in town (and I don’t mean the PEOTUS).
And I hope you’ve noticed that the New Law is about following your own Truth, the one in your Heart, not the impostor in your Head or the one in the book. Ever see the movie Roshomon? Seven different eye-witnesses, seven different stories, all True, like the Elephant and the blind folks. “Just the facts, M’am” was only propaganda for Scientism.
