Breaking Patterns

October 9, 2015

A reader wonders about a Configuration that develops over the next half-day or so…

“I’m asking because it activates my natal Ascendant/Descendant axis, and am thinking this would be a major pattern-breaking opportunity – but also wondering what it is that we would have to “supply” to get the best results?”

The Configuration in question is what we call a Quincunx Box, a rectangle formed by two Oppositions that are separated by Quincunxes and Unxes (an Unx is one-twelfth of the way ’round the Zodiacal loop).  The Twelfth Harmonic is just as our reader suggests, a major Pattern-Breaking opportunity.  It peaks at around 1am PDT ( ) on 10 October, when the Moon Opposes Chiron. The second Opposition is Sun Opposite Chiron, which is with us for several days yet.  The main drivers then are Moon Quincunx Uranus, which will be hot for six hours or so, and Sun Quincunx Chiron, which is within three Degrees of Sensitivity during 8-14 October, give or take.  As you well know by now, we interpret the Quincunx as Curiosity, not in the sense of answerable questions, but in the sense of Awe and Wonder you would feel, if you were half awake, watching a Seed sprout.

It’s easy to postulate that the Planet’s chagrin these days is due primarily to one thing.  That’s the prevalence of proponents of the Dualistic, Reductionist “Left” Brain, the logical mind.  Even the Religionists who thrash out against “Science” operate from a Dualistic Perspective.  Of course it’s always Both/And, so to attribute the downfall of Western Civilization and the regression of the Planet into unlivability to just one thing, is Dualistic in itself.  Of course there’s a second cause – the failure of proponents of the Multifarious, Wholistic, “Right” Brain, aka Feelings or Heart, to stand up and put a stop to the primary cause.  

I mean, how do you argue against logic itself?  Well, it’s actually effortless.  Logic is meaningless without a set of Assumptions to underlie it.  You just Ask repeatedly, “What Assumptions are you basing your logical house of cards upon?” and then point out over and over again how wrong those Assumptions are.

One of the worst features of Dualism is the Belief – which is largely Unconscious these days – that there are Answers for every Question.  Take the Question, “How can a Seed sprout?”  The “Answer” to that Question, which is not an Answer, plain and simple, is “It’s a Miracle.”  Sure, you can create some Assumptions around Genes or the like, and erect an Atlantean house of Frankencards on your tautologies, but that does not Answer the Question.  Whomever it is that invents Undynamite should create a prize for the person who most effectively teaches Awe and Wonder.

To Buddhism, this is “Beginner’s Mind,” worthy of great striving.  James Clerk Maxwell, the inventor of Electromagnetism, put it this way, “A state of thoroughly conscious ignorance is the prelude to any real advance of knowledge” or for that matter, Wisdom.  The Configuration our reader was inquiring about is based on just this, Permanent Curiosity, Conscious Ignorance.  It’s about PIAVAing to Discern our Expectations and Unconscious Assumptions, so we can shatter them.   This is how we Grow Consciousness.  Our Expectations and Unconscious Assumptions constitute our Limiting Beliefs.

There are six components to the Configuration that our reader wonders about…

  1. The Duality between our multi-Lifetime Soul Self, and our Essence (beyond Ego) in the current Lifetime
  2. The Duality between our Instinct to Manifest and our Ability to Transform our Perspective
  3. Our Awe over the Soul’s Ability to Guide our Instincts to Manifest (when we achieve Beginner’s Mind)
  4. Our Curiosity about how we can bootstrap ourself into a Life of Freedom and Abundance
  5. The Potential to jettison Habits that no longer serve us
  6. The Potential for the Soul to Guide the Transformation of our Limiting Beliefs

Which are (1) Uranus Opposite Sun, (2) Moon Opposite Chiron, (3) Uranus Quincunx Moon, (4) Chiron Quincunx Sun, (5) Balsamic Moon, and (6) Uranus Unx Chiron.

What we would have to “supply” to get the best results?  We have to get “ignorant” as best we can.  Since to do that we have to cross the Veil and retrieve what has been brainwashed out of us by our acculturation, we pretty much need to rely on PIAVA.  Something like “God/Goddess, may I please become Aware of the Expectations and Assumptions which block me from Manifesting my Deepest Desires.”  Or, “I fully Intend to leap across my Limits in a single bound, become fully Conscious of the Change, and Hold the New Energy Effortlessly.”

Our reader’s reference to their Ascendant/Descendant axis is about how the Configuration is likely to impact them personally.  The Configuration occupies 17-19 Degrees of Pisces-Aries and Virgo-Libra.  Crossing the Cusps of Aries and Libra indicates that – to the extent we can achieve Conscious Ignorance (or Awe) – both our Personality and our Relationships are up for serious Change.  Expecting Miracles is tricky business, because the Left brain wants to define what the Miracle will look like, and unfortunately it’s not a Miracle if we let that happen.  Expecting the Unexpected, or Expecting the Unimaginable, or Imagining the Unexpected (without defining it) might work a little better.  

Or, Imagine yourself on one side of a razor-wire fence, looking at “greener grass” on the other side of it.  Then Imagine How You Might Feel when you Levitate yourself over the fence and are now surrounded by greener grass.  Now, watch closely for any Yesbutts or Guilt or Fear or Grief or other Unpleasantries that arise.  You can Tap those out, Cancel-Neutralize-Upgrade them, or simply Imagine an additional fence with yet-greener grass on the other side of it, and Levitate yourself on over!  Now that you see how easy it is, you can Levitate over any number of your Limiting Beliefs – why not All of them!  Bliss’R’Us!

There are two things to remember.  The first is that Confusion is a sign of success.  The second is that while the grass is greener, you don’t want to let yourself Imagine anything else about what it’s like over there.  Focus on How You Might Feel when your every Want is immediately and fully Satisfied – without defining anything about your Wants; once you’re beyond your Limiting Beliefs, your Wants may be very different than they are now, in Unimaginable ways.  It’s not about the Known, it’s about the Unknown.  An Unknown full of Grace.

There are actually two other Configurations in today’s chart that endure into and beyond Monday’s New Moon, and color it strongly.  One of them will provide Epiphanies about our Soul Self and how to adjust our Values and Identity to manifest it more strongly (which Epiphanies will be multiplied by our intervening success at achieving Beginner’s Mind).  The other is about being Reborn into the Unimaginable through taking small steps toward Embracing our Orphaned Forbidden Genius.

Which are in turn, (1) a Uranus Mjolnir (a third planet at the far Midpoint between two planets that Square one another) on a base of Venus Square Saturn, and (2) a Golden Rectangle between dwarf planets Eris, Chaos, Haumea, and Ixion, with Centaur Pholus Conjunct Ixion, the New Moon Conjunct Haumea, and Uranus Conjunct Eris.
