A couple of notes that may be of interest to some folks, on Sodom and ‘Oumuamua…

Initiations are important because they signify a Change in their portion of the Zeitgeist.  They’re particularly relevant to Projects we may be Beginning.

For example, today’s Initiation of Mars (Action) by Neptune (Trance).  The Mars-Neptune segment of the Zeitgeist is about how our Actions coordinate with our Spirituality and with our Culture (both of which are Neptunian), and how we Act out potential Conflicts between our Spirituality and our Culture’s Expectations.  Mars-Neptune is a relatively short Cycle, renewing every couple of years.

An Initiation means we’re Beginning a New Cycle.  By then the Old Cycle is in tatters, as the last third or so of any Cycle is theoretically its Destructuring.  Which doesn’t mean that there aren’t people and institutions with deep investments in the Old Cycle.  The Dead Cycle began January 2017 in 10 Pisces, “An aviator flies on through ground-obscuring clouds.”  That certainly seems to apply well to the person who’s been piloting the US for just about that period of time, and how their Actions have reflected their Spirituality (Narcissism) and demeaned their Culture’s Expectations (Leadership).

So it may be good news that we’re in for a Change.  The New Cycle is about “A lady wrapped in a large stole of Fox fur” (14 Pisces), which we’d edit somewhat as “A lady wrapped in fur stolen from a large Fox.”  A denizen of the 1% apparently, and perhaps another indication of how Actions reflect Spirituality (Materialism) and Cultural Expectations (Consumption).  But then, perhaps the Consumerism will be so Conspicuous that people finally stop worshiping Wealth like it was Royalty.

This Cycle runs through mid-June 2020, and the next one begins at 21 Pisces, “Under the watchful and kind eyes of a Chinese servant, a girl fondles a little white Lamb.”  Isn’t that Explosive!  These Sabian Symbols were Channeled in the 1930s by a psychic in Los Angeles. so the Chinese servant is historically plausible.  And perhaps they thought of “fondling” a little differently than we would in the #MeToo era.  At any rate, the Symbol suggests that our shortcomings in Respect for All Beings may be Challenged as we enter the Digital Age.  Not that stealing fur from a Fox is any better than feeling up a Lamb.  And who knows, maybe it means that crotch-grabbers will finally get their due.

For now, how will we adapt to coordinating our Actions, Spirituality, and Culture around stolen Fur?  Certainly there are implications about Conservation that we can pursue, both as local efforts to Conserve and Restore Nature, and as Resistance to our Narcissist in Chief’s wholesale land and seabed gimmes to the oil and coal industries.  As the World Changes from a blind aviator to a naked Fox, the US Congress is Changing from the Party of Avarice to the Party of Wannabe Avarice.  Maybe the Angry Freshpersons will expose and embarrass the Wannabe Avarice elements of the old Party and Change it.  We can hope.

December 6, 2018

The 6 December Mercury Station (1:30 pm PST, 28 Sagittarius) and the 9 December Chiron Station (12am PST, 28 Pisces) share the same basic chart as the Uranus-Nodes T-Square in the previous post.  Which leaves two wild cards in our 1-10 December Time Province: the 7 December New Moon (12:30 am PST, 16 Sagittarius) and the 10 December Orcus Station (4am PST, 12 Virgo).

All of which kind of leaves dwarf planet Orcus calling the shots here.  Orcus is about Making and Breaking Oaths.  Most of us would probably habitually recoil at the idea of Breaking an Oath – after all, can we be Trusted to keep our Promises, or not?  Not is a cardinal sin in Patriarchal Society.  But remember that Uranus (Soul) is Squaring the Nodes (our Lifetime Path), and one of our Interpretations of Uranus is Yintegrity.

Yangtegrity means that we do what we said we were going to do.  Yintegrity means that we do what we Intuitively Feel like doing, moment to moment.  To Live Yintegrity in a Yangtegrity World we’ll probably need to minimize our Commitments, Renegotiate often, and Make Amends when Renegotiation isn’t possible and the Relationship is worth keeping.

But once we crawl out from under the Patriarchal thumb (ie, when we move to 5D), we’ll all do Yintegrity.  It’s hard to conceive of that working out smoothly because our Dualistic minds still think in Patriarchal terms.  When everyone runs their Life from Multidimensional Intuition instead of Dualistic Intellect, no worries; we’ll all be in the Flow and everything will mesh smoothly.  Not Imaginable?  Better start Suspending Disbelief if you aspire to a Collaborative, Cooperative, Non-Hierarchical Life.

Suspending Disbelief is an important Skill for Allowing Growth in Consciousness.  Practice it frequently.  It’s also important for Letting Go of Judgments and Achieving Unconditional Respect for All Things.  Love fades when Judgment replaces Curiosity, and Love Is All There Is – the rest is Deception and Illusion.

What’s an Orc in Tolkien’s World, after all?  It’s hardly a knight in shining armor or a beautiful princess.  These Orcean Oaths, especially the ones we’ve Forgotten, are the roots of our Limiting Beliefs.  And as we pointed out in the last post, it’s not that the Universe is Limited, it’s that The Emotions We Don’t Want to Feel Limit our Experience of the UniverseOaths make Ogres out of us, because we end up Valuing Loyalty to an Abstraction more than we Value Trusting our own Heart.  Which is a serious Self-Abandonment.

All of which is why we talk more about Breaking Oaths than Making them, especially those Oaths we’ve Forgotten we made and which have morphed over many Lifetimes into Limiting Beliefs that we mistake for the Limits of Hardcopy Reality.  And the Oaths that our Ancestors made which have morphed over many Generations into Limiting Beliefs that we Confuse with the Edges of Reality.

Think back to your first hearing of the Icarus Myth.  Did it make you recall your Oath not to try to Fly?  Think about when and why you made such an Oath.  Icarians live ten years longer than folks in the US.  Why?

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2012/10/25/a-greek-islands-secrets-to-long-life-in-11-bullet-points/

Sounds like elements of Yintegrity, doesn’t it.

If you recall the definition of Held Emotions (Emotions you’d rather Die than Feel, characteristic of the South Node), you know why Opening Up to them requires an Ego Death – because it’s not about “I’d rather Die than Feel that,” it’s about “I’d rather Die than Feel that.”  It’s the Ego that Dies, but the Ego can fight harder than the Body to Avoid Death, because the Ego usually deludes itself into thinking that it is the Body – and Soul.  Which is Healthy, from the psychological Perspective, especially if your psychology has taken Oaths to Support the Patriarchy.

The Orcus Station chart carries this through par excellence, as an Opposition between Stationary Orcus and Neptune (Confusion) is T-Squared (Challenged) by asteroid Nemesis (Ego Death).  As our Chief Asteroid Officer used to say, “You can’t make this stuff up!”  But the chart, despite the T-Square, is about as Charmed as a chart could be…

The T-Square is not only a Diamond Square (Self-Resolving Challenge), but a corner of a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Blessings), and the chart is perfectly Symmetrical (Balanced, Flowing Smoothly).  So if you haven’t already Learned to at least Recognize and Allow your Ego Deaths, if not Embrace them as the Growth Portals that they really are, this is your Golden Opportunity.  The Universe is feeding you the Lesson with a Silver Spoon.

Meanwhile, the Strongest feature of the New Moon chart…

…is a Mjölnir (Epiphany) to the North Node (our Lifetime Mission).  A Mjölnir (yellow-orange lines) occurs when a third planet (here North Node) sits at the Far Midpoint between two planets that are Square to one another (here the New Moon and Mars-Neptune).  The third planet makes Trioctiles (Positive Rebalancing) to the ends of the Square, producing Insights that are Valuable to our Growth.

It is a remarkable feature of astrology that you can read a chart in completely different ways and get the same interpretation.  It’s the Epiphany/Mjölnir to the North Node that leads us to interpret this New Moon as focused on our Lifetime Mission.  Stephanie Austin comes to a very similar conclusion because the New Moon is in Sagittarius, which she interprets as “Meaning and Purpose.”  Her reading for this New Moon goes into great detail about just that, and I highly recommend it as an Easy Path to Epiphanies about your own Lifetime Mission.

She puts an earlier example on her invitation page, so you’ll have to subscribe to get the latest edition, but it’s more than worth the modest expense, and I find her information to be very complementary with mine, as we each go into detail about different subtopics of What’s Happening.

Those are the major emphases of these charts, but there are a number of important sub-themes.  For instance, in the New-Moon chart…

  • The 4 December (2pm PST) Initiation of Pallas (Boundaries) by Aletheia (Truth) at 13 Libra, “Children blowing soap bubbles.”
  • The 7 December (7am PST) Initiation of Mars (Action) by Neptune (Trance) in 14 Pisces, “A lady wrapped in a large stole of Fox fur.”

And in the Orcus-Station chart…

  • The rather remarkable convergence of asteroid BZ509 (Transcendence), Saturn (The Most Important Thing), asteroid Karma (Held Emotions), and dwarf planet Hylonome (Self-Sovereignty) in 9-10 Capricorn, which will Initiation six New Cycles.

We’ll talk about all these and more as the week wears on.  If any of these looks important to you, or falls on a natal planet of yours, and I forget or run out of time to include them, remind me, and I’ll correct my omission.

Creating The Uncommon

January 19, 2015

Carol Tuttle is an EFT (Tapping) professional.  Her blog today includes a great and oh-so-timely video about Manifestation, Limitation, and Tradition…

http://thecarolblog.com/dream-big-realistic/

Scroll down a couple of screens for the video.  As I’m writing this, Neptune (Spirit) is in the process of Initiating Mars (Doing)!

I often wonder if these folks have astrologers, or if they’re just very in tune with the twists and turns in the Zeitgeist.  The Initiation occurs at 6 Pisces, “A parade of army officers in full dress.”  Interesting picture.

The key to dealing with Neptune is that it represents Confusion (which of course is the first stage of Growth) when seeing the World through Material eyes, and Clarity when seeing the World from a Spiritual or Energy Perspective. 

So we look at this parade picture as if it was on the news, and we think “Oh shit, more war.”  But what is the Energy in the picture?  In full dress these folks aren’t going to war, they’re showing off their Dance.  If they’re in a parade (at least in some countries) they’re more likely to have already been to war.   And what characterizes a reunion of military folk?  Usually Camaraderie.  So if we allow ourselves to Dream a little instead of being “Realistic,” we might see more Community Collaboration over the next year or two as this Mars-Neptune Cycle develops.

A common Dilemma with Mars-Neptune is the apparent Conflict between Spirit and Flesh.  Mars-Neptune can sink us into many false dichotomies.  Spirit and Flesh are the same thing; it just depends on which set of glasses you’re wearing.  When they seem to Conflict, move to “the Coin” rather than the heads or the tails, or in this case, the Crown or the Root.

Portal 4.5

April 5, 2014

elsmcit1688bpElestial Citrine.

Elestial Quartz formed quickly in Water, hence its multiple merged points.  It’s one Crystal, with many points.  It brings Angelic assistance to the task of allowing our True Self to manifest into practical Form.  Citrine brings all four of our Bodies into alignment, transforms negative Emotions, and clears away impediments to our Understanding of how it all fits together.  Smokey Quartz (Elestials are Smokey, and Citrine is a form of Quartz) absorbs negative radiation as well.

 

Programming the Future

There’s a fascinating interview with John Hogue on Coast to Coast AM, at…

http://www.coasttocoastam.com/show/2014/03/26

Starting about ten minutes in.  You have to subscribe to get access to it, so I’ll summarize the key points…

John is a Nostradamus scholar, and refers to his study and use of the idioms of 16th-Century French to help decode Nostradamus’s quatrains.  After a long discussion of the predictions of Nostradamus and several other seers down over the centuries, he considers whether a second Cold War will begin this month, or in October, and whether a nuclear WWIII is likely to befall us –  “Raining Stars from the Sky and killing more people in one day than all previous wars combined” as one prognostication put it – though that would fit for an asteroid collision as well.

Then he discusses various views of the Antichrist, and his belief that the Antichrist is actually our own Unconsciousness, some foretelling we “Walk into the conflagration with eyes wide open.”  And how he regards the massive Denial (see “1964-1973” in Unexploded Bomb) we live in today as example.  Then they took a couple of calls from listeners.

One listener wanted to discuss his pet theories about the Malaysian Airlines 777.  John rather sternly cut him off at the ankles, citing his obsession with the missing airliner as a sterling example of the slavish obeisance to the mass hypnosis peddled by the corporate media that decorates our massive Denial.

Another caller was a fellow who patiently explained to John how he could avoid the catastrophe and get sent to Heaven instead by taking Jesus as his Savior.  John gently shot him out of the water, pointing out that there are 32 other Christian sects, each with their own recipe for Salvation, not to mention the many sects of Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and YouNameItism.  Again, slavish obeisance to the intellectual formulae peddled by the religions is exactly the sort of hypnosis that will keep us in Denial.

He pointed out that future events will be unlike anything we’ve witnessed in the past, and the only way Humanity will wake up and say NO! is by stepping outside of the established propaganda machines and obsolete paradigms, opening our Observer Selves to witness the massive Destruction barreling down on us and the signs and signals of its progress, and raising our collective Voices to take Action to at least delay it if not transform it.

On the other hand, Bill Clinton was on the tube the other night talking about how the youngsters he works with have their eyes open and are creating all manner of innovative approaches to shift the Energy.  In contrast to the alleged Hollywood Boulevard dunces that his Puer host shamelessly exploits nightly.

 

Prediction and Interpretation

As I hope you know by now, we focus here on interpretation rather than prediction.  We do that for a couple of reasons.  First, while astrology is a great lever for focusing the Intuition, no two people have the same chart and the same set of Life experiences, and no two people will react or respond the same way to a given Energy.  Second, everyone actually uses words differently, so even if you Intuit exactly what someone is up to, the probability of actually communicating it is small.  Third, You would have to understand in advance how the person would likely use the information; you wouldn’t want to create unnecessary additional difficulty for them.  Finally, you want to harness the Placebo effect as much as you can, so you try to propose not possible futures but paths to Healing.

Which is what I like about John Hogue’s interview – he was proposing a path to Healing – namely, getting Conscious.  Which is exactly what Portal 4.5 is about.  It’s a unique and shining opportunity, because the rest of April is fraught with potential Challenges of Yintegrity.  So the more we can use Portal 4.5 to lever up our Consciousness, the more effective will be our response to the Challenges before us.

 

There are six overlapping Energies running through this Portal.

The first three are of longer duration, but form an important backdrop for the Portal itself.

  • We are moving toward Compassion for both the limitations of Physical Reality and the travails demanded by Spirit.  Recognize Confusion as the first stage of Growth, and respond to any difficulty by letting go of your obsession with the Material.  Look for the Energy behind it. 

The Trioctile is three eighths of the way ’round the Zodiac.  The Eighth Harmonic is about Realignment, and the Third about Love with Wisdom.  Mars (Physical Energy) is making a Waning Trioctile to Neptune (Spiritual Energy).  The Waning Mars-Neptune Cycle is about “Petrified tree trunks lie broken on desert sand” – yes, the infrastructure of civilization is broken, but it’s time to move beyond that realization and begin building a new structure.

  • The first stage of Rebuilding is to find Compassion for ourselves over our discovery that the pillars of our own Belief Systems have also collapsed.  We aren’t sure what to Believe any more, and that’s a good thing – it means we’re moving out beyond the intellectual formulae and mass hypnosis to a place where we can see more clearly and respond when we need to.  Stay with the Confusion – it will lead you to very important new Insights.

While the Chiron Mjolnir has dissolved because Lilith (as is her wont) has gone her own way, the Waning Trioctile from the Vesta-Ceres-North Node Conjunction to Chiron remains strong.

  • The April 5-7 window is a powerful opening for putting into practice the increasingly urgent feeling that we need to Let Go of our Masks and let our True Self shine through.  In fact, we’re highly likely to start this process by putting our foot in our mouth in a big way.  When that happens, don’t backtrack.  Do apologize for being abrupt, and make sure you’re speaking about your feelings and not about other people.  But stay with your Truth – it’s how we will recognize our Team and get to work.

After being recently Initiated by Uranus, Juno is about to Initiate the Sun.  The Juno-Uranus Initiation was the “Unexploded bomb.”  The Sun-Juno Initiation will be about “Abundance made possible by Human cooperation.”  And the Sun-Juno Initiation takes place right on Eris!  So there will be big sheets of Denial peeled away here.

The other three Energies are more ephemeral.  Two of these more ephemeral Energies form the primary Portal, opening from around 9am PDT to 6pm PDT on April 5.

  • The Most Important Thing during this Window will be to Trust what may feel like “random” Emotions.  Those are our Instincts.  They come straight from our Heart and Soul, not from our Programming or our Intellect.  They could put us into awkward situations, but stay with your Truth, as this is the process of moving into Yintegrity.

A Quintile Yod forms when a third planet occupies the far midpoint between two planets that Quintile one another.  It means that the third planet becomes the focus of attention to direct the Energies of the other two planets, while the whole Configuration introduces a probably-inconvenient but definitely-important “Learning Opportunity.”  Here Saturn is the focus, with the Moon and the Sun-Juno Conjunction as the feet.

  • There is Great Grace available in the synergies between Trusting our Instincts, Allowing our Belief System to be scrambled not with Doubt but with Curiosity, and enlisting our Compassion for Self and Other.

The Moon makes a Grand Trine with Venus and the Vesta-Ceres-North Node Conjunction.

  • The Grace multiplies many times over when we lovingly and gently open to our Karma.  We recoil from our Karma (the unpleasant experiences that we don’t want to see repeated) because it has given us such grief in the past.  But it’s a mere shadow of its former self, and when we open our Heart to it and find Compassion for ourself in its grip, it will dissolve in a few minutes.  But we have to Consciously take that step – notice our recoil, congratulate ourself for noticing it, and then soften our Resistance to it.

The South Node and Pallas Trine one another and Sextile the Grand Trine, forming five points of a Grand Sextile.  That tells us to look at the Vacancy – the missing jetliner, no, the missing sixth point that would complete the Grand Sextile.  That happens to be a busy point, as Quaoar and Chariklo are both recently Stationary there, and it happens to be where the Galactic Center sits, or the Black Whole at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy.  Just to put frosting on the cake, the asteroid Karma is there as well, itself Stationing in a few weeks.

In other words, the force of the entire Galaxy is at our backs here!  But the onus is upon us to take the first step out of our habitual reactions.  It almost doesn’t matter how we respond or act, as long as it’s different and new.  That’s one thing about the True Self – we don’t do it, we stand back and allow it to come through.  We just Relax and stop Resisting it.  It’s the easiest thing in the World, it’s absolutely natural for you – when you Let It Go.  We’re used to being punished or Shamed for being ourselves, because that’s what brings it into sharp focus for us and separates it from the background noise.  We just need to confront the Shaming, and embrace our historical Punished One.

We still need to write about the Water Nymph Chariklo, known about the Heavens for her Beauty and Grace.
