Active Self-Sovereignty II

August 19, 2018

We’ve updated August II (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/08/13/august-ii/), adding accuracy and the Moons.

If we turn our Attention to the Almost-Grand-Unx in the Lilith-Mars Initiation chart that governs the next two-and-a-half years, the first thing we’d want to know is What’s The Vacancy?  The Vacancy represents the Energy We need to supply Consciously in order to make the puzzle fit together and unload all of it’s Grace. 

It’s 2 Scorpio, “A delicate bottle of perfume lies broken, releasing its fragrance.”  The implication might be that our Self-Sovereignty is a delicate thing, easily squandered, and that it would profit us if we guarded it more carefully.

Dan’s Arcturian team has a comment for us on this, and on the recent Eclipse’s focus on Respect for All Things and Growth of Consciousness (Hopi-Juno)…

https://danielscranton.com/our-perspective-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We have a perspective on humanity that allows us to see who you really are, even when you are acting from your ego, even when you are living your lives from a place of fear.  We still are able to see who you really are.  We never lose sight of that truth that you are Source Energy Beings, comprised wholly of unconditional love.

“So when you are acting out in some way, and you judge yourself, or others place judgment upon you, just know that there is another perspective.  There are beings holding that space for you, that space that allows us to see you as you truly are.”

“We also encourage you to take our perspective when it comes to your fellow humans.  If you can take that perspective that everyone is doing the best they can to be the embodiment of Source Energy in a physical body, then you can let go of some of your own judgment of other people…” 

And if you can take that perspective that you are doing the best you can to be the embodiment of Source Energy in a physical body, then you can let go of your judgment of yourself.  Dan continues…

“And that will free you.  That will liberate you to hold a higher frequency, as we do.  We don’t have any of those judgments or any of that guilt weighing us down.

“It is easy to shift your perspective.  It just takes a willingness to make that your intention, and then you can vibrate in harmony with us, with our perspective, and in the process you can become more of who you are.  You are going to know yourselves as Source Energy Beings at some point, and you don’t have to earn that knowing.  You just have to accept it.  So why not start now, while you still have physical bodies to enjoy?”

The Glory of a Grand Unx, or even an Almost-Grand-Unx, is that you can make almost any other Configuration from it.  For instance (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/08/12/active-self-sovereignty/), can you pick out the Yin Gate between Mars-Lilith and Varuna, signifying that we should keep an eye out for Physical Symptoms which don’t Make Sense relative to what we know about our Bodies? 

There’s a second Yin Gate between Saturn-Pholus-Quaoar and Moira, suggesting that The Most Important Thing is for us to Consciously Choose to Support our Survival Instincts, no matter how Paradoxical they seem.  Our Instincts often run Contrary to our Habitual Patterns, and they’re often very Subtle and easy to Ignore.  If they seem like a Wild Hare, Pay Attention!

The third Yin Gate spans OR10 and Aletheia.  The bottom line here is that while those Intrusive Memories seem very Dramatic and highly Fictional, many of them are literally True in their context.  The more we have a hard time Imagining the context, the more likely they are to be Literal.  What would that mean?

Then there are the Fire, Earth, and Air Grand Trines.  While they suggest that we may have some Emotional Work to do, the Karma-Chiron-Varuna Fire Grand Trine promises Healing of long-standing Physical issues, as long as you Persevere in stepping out of the Victim box.  That means you’ll need to deal with that Emotional issue as Emotion, rather than dwelling on your thoughts and Stories about it. 

A useful strategy is to Ask your Affliction – Physical or Emotional – what it has to Teach you.  Focusing your Attention right into the Center of your Discomfort, and keeping it there as long as you can will also help.  For Emotional Discomfort, Locate it in your Body and focus there.  If that’s Difficult, just Trust your first Guess.

But of course the most interesting thing about a Grand Unx will always be the Unxes.  An Unx is the Angle between two planets that are one Sign apart – Unx means one twelfth.  The Twelfth Harmonic is about Pattern-Breaking.  A Waning Unx will help us Break Old Patterns that Commit us to Obsolete Energies.  A Waxing Unx will help us Break our Resistance to New Energies.  For instance…

  • Active Self-Sovereignty (Mars-Lilith) makes a Waxing Unx to our Survival (Saturn-Pholus-Quaoar-Galactic Center), telling us that Business As Usual (such as continuing to kiss the Power-Brokers’ smelly Behinds) won’t work much longer.
  • Active Self-Sovereignty makes a Waning Unx to those Intrusive Memories (OR10) – we’re used to discounting weird Memories that seem out of context.  In this case we want to examine them for potential Truth, then Let them Go.
  • We can go on around the Loop…
  • Chiron (Pain and Miracles) makes a Waxing Unx to OR10 and a Waning Unx to Uranus (Soul) – The more you can Remember your Lifetimes as a Healer, the better.
  • Lachesis (Choosing the Length of Timelines) makes a Waxing Unx to Uranus; our Experience of Life will be Different now that the Soul’s in charge.
  • Moira (Choice) makes a Waxing Unx to Lachesis and a Waning Unx to Varuna.  A Choice or Vow we made in the Distant Past is the root of one of our chronic Physical Discomforts.  We can Change that, without even Knowing what the original Choice was about – just PIAVA that the Original Source of your Discomfort be Lovingly and Gently Transformed.
  • Truth (Aletheia) makes a Waxing Unx to Varuna and a Waning Unx to Venus-Makemake.  You’ll be Letting Go of Old Patterns that Inhibit your Manifesting What You Want.  For every excuse you make for not having What You Want, Know that it’s Bullshit.

Active Self-Sovereignty

August 12, 2018

Today Daniel Scranton Channels…

https://danielscranton.com/the-power-of-non-action-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We are beginning to understand humanity’s motivations for doing things.  We have noticed that you believe very strongly in taking action, and that many of the actions that you take are done in an almost zombie-like state.  We see you going through the motions most of the time, but not really engaging with the actions that you take.

“So most actions that we see you taking are meant to make you feel better about something or to just feel better, period.  You take action not because you absolutely feel that you must, not because you are inspired and you cannot hold yourselves back, but rather you take actions because you feel they are necessary.

“We want you to start acting less.  We encourage you instead to see how long you can do nothing, because in doing nothing, you are more likely to become aware of what you are feeling.  Now, when you become aware of what you are feeling, you can do something about it.  You can raise your vibration.

“There is a chance, of course, that for some of you doing nothing will lead to an inspired action.  You will find yourself moving in a particular direction without even thinking about it.  You will spring into action because something inside of you will be guiding you towards that particular action.  We want you to realize that this is what you intended to do with the actions that you would take at this point in your journey.

“You intended to act from a place of joy or enthusiasm, a place of excitement.  You don’t need to prove yourselves through your actions.  No one is keeping track of how much you got done, unless you are talking about someone that you work for, or perhaps someone in your life that you are trying to impress.  But is that really where you want your actions to come from?

“Or can you imagine a life where every action that you take is taken because you feel inspired to move in a certain direction?  Take as much time as you need to receive that inspiration, and for as long as you can, sit and do nothing, and just see what happens.”

Actually, I do that a lot, just this morning for instance, and I usually Judge myself for it.

We usually find a high correlation between Daniel’s Arcturian Channelings and the current astrology, and for the last several days he’s been talking about a Big Download or Portal, consistent with the Uranus Station or Descent of the Soul.  So I Wonder if this Non-Action reflects something in the Eclipse chart that I haven’t noticed? 

Non-Action is of course an important part of Taoism and Buddhism…

http://www.abuddhistlibrary.com/Buddhism/H%20-%20World%20Religions%20and%20Poetry/World%20Religions/Taoism/Articles%20and%20Texts/Taoism%20-%20we-wei/Taoism%20–%20wu-wei,%20inaction,%20actionless%20action.htm

Inaction or wu-wei does not mean that one literally does nothing (although more often than we think actually doing nothing is the best policy).  Rather, it means that one avoids unnatural action.  This is most often forced or aggressive or obsessively fussy action.  It also means, that one performs all one’s actions with a natural, unforced attitude.  The Taoist remembers that sand will settle out of water in time if the water is left undisturbed, and that no one person can do everything. 

“Above all the Taoist avoids fussing.  Excessive excitement over trivial matters is an annoyance to both self and others.  The Czech philosopher Comenius expressed the idea in his motto: ‘Omnia sponte fluant; absit violentiarebus‘ – ‘Let all things spontaneously flow; let there be no violence to things’.  Wu-wei is also related to tolerance: one does not insistently interfere in the lives of others unless they themselves are interfering with someone.  This letting alone of others is a form of respect and non-violence, and is akin to the modern notion of human rights.”

This extension to Tolerance makes astrological sense, as the Eclipse was about Boundaries (Conjunct Pallas) and Illuminated (T-Square) Contrast (Opposition) between Respect for All Things (Hopi) and Growth in Consciousness (Juno).  But any mention of Action, or Non-, steers us toward Mars.  Other than being Retrograde, what was Mars up to?

Mars was Conjunct Lilith, or Self-Sovereignty.  We associate Self-Sovereignty with Lilith because, once we eliminate Her Condemnation by the Patriarchy, Her most immediate and prominent Action was to decisively Reject Adam when he attempted to demand her Obeisance.  That explains the Arcturian message quite well. 

Lilith Initiated Mars less than a day before the Eclipse (8am PDT 10 August), and the Initiation was a doozy…

That’s all but one corner of a “Grand Unx,” where twelve planets are more or less equally spaced around the Zodiac.  The Twelfth Harmonic is about Pattern-Breaking, which is probably going to be pretty useful as we begin sourcing our Sovereignty from Soul rather than Ego.  In the heavy lines we’ve drawn just the Angles that directly involve Mars-Lilith – yet another one of those usually-rare Self-Resolving Diamond Stars that are all over the Sky this month. 

Mars-Lilith is Contrasted to (Opposes) the Life Force (Varuna) and Challenged (T-Square) by our Soul (Uranus Stationary), implying that a Threat to our Health will be an indicator that we are continuing our Codependence rather than Surrendering to Soul’s Inspiration.  As a Diamond Star, though, the Challenge will be Self-Resolving, as Blessings flow to us from the “Basket of Grace” (blue truss) beneath the T-Square (red triangle).

The Blessings flow from Noticing our Self-Sabotaging Patterns and Responding rather than Reacting to the Triggers that Set them Off (asteroid Karma, which is Unx to Saturn-Pholus-Quaoar).  And from Manifesting What We Really Want rather than what we’ve been Programmed to Manifest (Venus-Makemake).

The Challenge between (Square) Self-Sovereign Action (Mars-Lilith) and Soul (the Uranus Station) is also Resolved by (the orange lines or Mjölnir) Epiphanies about the Truth of what’s Sustainable (Ceres-Veritas).

The Lilith-Mars Initiation occurred at 1 Aquarius, “an old adobe mission in California.”  That’s pretty much a poster child for “insistently interfering in the lives of Others who are not themselves interfering with Others” – Western Colonialism.  Who continues to Colonize us, to use us and our Resources for their own Gain without compensating us fully?  Full compensation would mean that every transaction leaves both parties equally better off.  Does that characterize most of the transactions in your Life, as Venus-Makemake suggests it should?

Anger is the Energy that Sustains Resistance to Colonialism, but Acting in Anger leaves us worse off as a Community, and unfortunately leaves echos for Centuries.  For instance, today’s “Celebration” of the Anniversary of the Debacle in Charlottesville Virginia, and everything it entails, is a direct continuation of the US Civil War, which has on paper been over for 153 years.

Dwarf planet Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) is noticeably absent from the Lilith-Mars Initiation chart, leaving the echos of Colonialism itself for another day.  But the principle of Non-Action implies that we deal with our Anger through means other than Action.  We Fear that if we Abandon our Anger we also Abandon What We Deserve, but it’s an unfounded Fear – we are much more Effective at Defending our Rightful Space when we do so from Worthiness rather than Anger.

Mars-Jupiter-Lilith July 11-22

July 13, 2013

Next Wednesday’s Uranus Station makes a Ninth-Harmonic Angle to Mars, Jupiter, and Lilith.

The impending Lilith-Mars Initiation (1am PDT July 20) at 5 Cancer (“At a railroad crossing, an automobile is wrecked by a train” or as Rudhyar says, “The tragic results when an individual’s will pits itself carelessly against the collective will of society“) begins a two-and-a-half-year Cycle.  Lilith (pre-Intellectual Instinct, Equality, Collaboration) is the Initiator here, Mars (Action) the Initiate.  If Action is frustrated, Mars can manifest as negative Emotions and destructive tendencies.

Don’t miss Malala’s UN speech…

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-23291897

Her recovery and obvious Calling makes you believe that it’s Olde-Male Chauvinism that’s the wrecked automobile, not Malala.  In the US, the Olde Males are running roughshod over women’s rights in state after state – is this a defensive reaction to the demise of Olde Male suzerainty, or just another crude chest-thumping Power-Over?  The next couple of years may tell us whether the collective will of society is getting off the Olde-Male train or not.

Lilith, banished from polite society in the Book of Isaiah, represents the Shadow of Male-dominated culture – Shadow in the Jungian sense, namely that which is repressed.  The Lilith-Mars Initiation takes place while Mercury is Stationary, implying the likely eruption of repressed contents into Consciousness.  Repressed material seldom leaks out, it more often erupts – train-wreck style, as texts on mental health describe in great detail.  “Mental health” in Male-dominated cultures, that is.

When you see your Shadow, be mindful not to overreact.  We integrate our Shadow by embracing it.  That’s really all you need to do, open up space to be Loving with it, though if Shame or Guilt or Anger or Fear arises in the process, it’s even more important to be loving and gentle with that.  “Good” is as unproductive a word here as “Bad” is – you want to move toward Wholeness, not toward Good.

If there is conflict between your sense of what’s Right and your acknowledgment of your “Bad,” give yourself permission to Forgive.  You don’t want to isolate or eliminate the Bad to make room for more Good – you want to examine your motives for the Bad, to see how you can adjust your Actions and Words to be less hurtful to others and to yourself, but still fulfill your motives.  Flipping 100% leaves you on the same Coin – no Change.  A 10% shift will give you new perspectives and put you on a new playing field, where you have more Healthy Control.

It would be instructive to see what the Mars-Lilith Cycle has been up to for the last couple of years.  That would be 2 Aries, “A comedian reveals human nature” (April 2011).  That’s certainly an illuminating way to look at the events of the last few years, isn’t it.  The implication is an increase in Consciousness.  Even if it means Acceptance rather than Change, it’s still great progress, as Acceptance is actually much more effective at Pattern-Breaking than trying to Change.  Once we have Acceptance, we have Choice.

The Ninth Harmonic is about Contemplation, Introspection, Inspiration, Integration, Wholeness, and Wisdom.  The combination signifies an intense couple of years, as Lilith erupts, with Uranus standing behind her to Disrupt whatever is stagnant.  Pre-Intellectual Instinct is a critically important part of the Authenticity and Yintegrity that Uranus requires – and Lilith and Uranus are independent Energies.  When two independent Energies are both triggered, their impact is multiplied.

The Mars-Jupiter Initiation occurs at 12am PDT July 22, at 6 Cancer, “Game Birds feathering their nests,” or in Rudhyar’s view, “An instinctual dedication of self to new forms of life.”  An open book?  This would seem like a disadvantage of pre-Intellectual Instinct, as the Game Birds prepared for the next generation even as they themselves are destined for the oven – blind obedience to an old Pattern, without the Consciousness to Awake and Change the Pattern.  The Mars-Jupiter Cycle is about Action in service to Expansion.

The prior Mars-Jupiter Cycle began on MayDay 2011, Beltane, Conjunct Eris at 23 Aries, “A pregnant woman in a light summer dress.”  Eris would have had women telling it like it is.

While Jupiter and Lilith Conjoined on July 11 (the day before Malala’s speech), that was their fourth meeting of five.  The Initiation occurred in December 2011, at 1 Taurus, “A Clear Mountain Stream,” or in Rudhyar’s view, “The pure uncontaminated and spontaneous manifestation of one’s own nature.”  Couldn’t get much more relevant to a Uranus Station!

Jupiter-Lilith is a 35-year Cycle.  The previous Initiation was in January 1978, at 29 Gemini, “The first Mockingbird of Spring.”  Mockingbird is to Spring as Rooster is to Morning – this was about waking up.  And making noise, sounding the alarm.  I’m not sure that this characterizes Women’s Rights in the 1978-2011 span though.  In many ways the post-Watergate era for most people was about knuckling down and adjusting to both-parents-working, while incomes and prosperity peaked and began to fall.

How would the prior Cycle have motivated Rosie the Riveter?  The January 1943 Initiation was 18 Cancer, or “A Hen scratching the ground to find nourishment for her progeny.”  Fitting for the Self-abandonment of the Mad Men era as well, and if you postulate that the Feminism of the 1960s was motivated primarily by a desire for equal pay, maybe for the These Boots Were Made for Walking age as well.

We can’t help but blame other people for the ways we don’t have permission to be our True Self, and often it’s people we Love or Depend upon.  Next week we get to tell them off.  It’s important to get this out in the open.  Don’t tell them off with the intention of pushing them out of your Life.  Tell them off with the intention of being Honest about what you really feel.  If you “hurt their feelings” in the process, apologize for that, and ask them to tell you how they really feel.  Don’t candy-coat anything, but use the opportunity to deepen your relationship with them.

With Uranus, Eris, and Mercury all Stationary next week, the Mars-Lilith-Jupiter complex will open up tremendous opportunities for Collaboration, and Collaboration is probably the most important commodity lacking on the Planet in this time.
