We can consider Wondering What Mask Will Go Next to be “November I”…
That described our Adventures in Self-Knowing, Self-Empathy, and, if we do it “right,” Curiosity and Wonder; this extends till November 10. We have several other interesting processes going on early in the month as well. Then things get pretty busy Mid-month. We get to meet a couple more of the new dwarf planets up close and personal, though we’ll have to squint to distinguish their influence from our more familiar planetary friends, as the events pile up on one another. The Galaxy is still handing down some pretty firm instructions that if we want to jet-propel our happy Survival in the Future, we need to Let Go of what we don’t really need, especially Beliefs that no longer serve us, and Identities based on Privilege, but “stuff” too. This Energy will be with us for the rest of the year.
The Quaoar-Chariklo-Hylonome (Survival Rules-Beauty and Charm-Ego Death) Stellium on the Galactic Center (Headquarters) is still T-Squaring (Mastery through Challenge) the Nodes (Linear Time), with Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) sitting on the South Node (our Habituation) and Makemake (Manifestation) on the North (our Destiny, should we choose to accept it).
Some big Relationship Transformation are upon us, especially our Relationships with our Self, as Fear subsides and we realize that we could leap into Infinite Impossibility by taking more Responsibility for our Pathological Genius. If we don’t jump at this opportunity in the first few days of the month, New Information may arrive by the end of the first week to catapult us out of our Lazy-Boy. If you missed our recent article on Pathological Genius, look under “Path…” in the “Categories” column to the right; it’s a loaded term that you don’t want to misinterpret.
Venus and Mars (Heiros Gamos, or Union of the Inner Lad and Inner Lass) Conjoin on 2 November. It’s not an Initiation or Can-Opener; that occurred last spring, and Venus is just catching up to Mars after her Descent of Inanna. The Cycle is 2 Aries, “A comedian reveals human nature: The capacity to look objectively at oneself and other.” They aren’t alone in their Lovebed (Your mother’s ghost stands at your shoulder, but Ixion is involved, so you know somebody’s going to break the rules): the Conjunction T-Squares the Opposition between Chaos (Unlimited Potential) and Pholus-Ixion (Responsibility-Rascal), and Trines Sedna (Action Taken out of Fear).
The Venus-Chaos and Mars-Chaos Cycles are at their Waxing Squares, or the place where they become permanent. Venus-Chaos is “A large archaic volume reveals a traditional wisdom” (19 Gemini, April 2015) and the Mars-Chaos Cycle is about “A modern cafeteria displays an abundance of food, products of many regions” (20 Gemini, June 2015). Great to have that option, but Eating Local is more Sustainable. The Squares to Pholus-Ixion are Waning – Water under the bridge. We’ve already invested our Passions in our Pathological Genius; now it’s time to sit still and watch what happens. Meanwhile, more swingers want in…
On 6 November (while Venus crosses the North Node and lights up the Nodal T-Square), Haumea (Rebirth) Opposes Eris (Revelation of Denial – Epiphany if you’re open to it). This isn’t a Can-Opener either; that occurred last November – keep a journal? These two will dance together till the end of the decade. Venus-Mars makes a Quincunx Bridge (Curiosity helps a lot) to this Opposition, and the two Oppositions (Haumea to Eris and Chaos to Pholus-Ixion, the base of the Venus-Mars T-Square) create a Golden Rectangle (Graceful Integration of the Dichotomies). That is, Chaos Trines Haumea (we could be reborn as anything we Want – or anything we worry too much about if we Choose Anxiety over Intention) and Pholus-Ixion Trines Eris (the New Information is likely to permit – or force – us to Take Responsibility for our Pathological Genius).
This isn’t just another realignment with your paramour. It’s a major Initiation into the Alternate Culture that will parallel Vulture Capitalism as it rides off into the Sunset with all the Money. If we substitute a return to Community, Letting the Money Go could be a huge blessing. The Money Economy might feel the Abandonment around 6 November.
Meanwhile, the Jupiter-Chiron Opposition Can-Opener is exact. The Jupiter-Chiron Cycle is a powerful one. The Initiation was May 2009 at 27 Aquarius, “Fresh violets in an ancient pottery bowl,” simultaneous with the famous Chiron-Neptune Opposition (look up “Chiron-Neptune” in the “Categories” if you haven’t been following us for years; this is Big) and with both Chiron and Neptune Standing Still.
When a planet Stands Still (aka is Stationary), it’s at the peak of its Power.
Imagine Zeus (Jupiter) kneeling with head bowed while the God of the Unconscious Sea places his trident on one of Zeus’s shoulders, and the Ultimate Healer places one hoof on the other shoulder. It’s as if the Patriarchy was swearing an oath to serve the Goddess’s generals. This is a preliminary blooming of this development.
Let’s review briefly just to remind how Big this is. The current Jupiter-Chiron event is a preliminary peak of the much larger Chiron-Neptune Cycle. Chiron-Neptune Cycles are about Despair and Miracles in the Cultural Unconscious. The current Cycle began with the Derivatives Crisis of 2007-8 (which the 1% and it’s lapdog media successfully blamed on the Victims of the 1%’s Greed). The previous Cycle began on the very day that Japan surrendered at the end of World War II. The end of War created a major Economic disruption, as combatants sought civilian employment, and Arms manufacturers sought alternative markets – the explosives became the artificial fertilizers and the poison gases became the pesticides and pharmaceuticals that have since shortened your lifespan. The Cycle prior to that was Initiated when much-oversold bonds that financed the US transcontinental railroads collapsed. It began what was then called the Great Depression, which was renamed the Long Depression in order to honor the Greatness of the Depression of the 1930s. It lasted from 1890 till World War I.
