One Other Unusual Energy

June 9, 2022

There’s one other unusual Segment of today’s Resistance to Our Cravings Energy, that might have our Self-Love flummoxed. In the worst case we could be Irritated at ourself for getting “Down” because we have “higher Expectations” for ourself.

If this happens, our first recommendation is that you Poor-Sweetheart yourself. Just say to yourself, “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Down, aren’t you,” and then Change the Subject. This is more than Grammar, because when you say it, “You” – Your Identity of the Moment – shifts from “Down” to Compassion. It’s Empathy that Heals, and you’ve just Empathized with yourself. The Changing the Subject part is important, because if you don’t (or can’t), then your Thoughts About Your Feeling will suck you right back into the Bummer.

Of course, if you can just Attune Deeply and Steadily with the Sensations in your Body that Triggered your “Down” Feeling, while closely Watching and Evaluating your Thoughts so they don’t Distract you from the Sensations, that may work even better. Remember you can always add “You Poor Sweetheart, you’re having Trouble Changing the Subject, aren’t you” if you get Stuck in the Downer Thought Loop. You can even Iterate it, like a Mantra, if it helps to convince you to levitate your Mind out of the Self-Abusive gutter.

Now, if you’ve Experienced this Self-Judgment before in your Young Life, then you’ve hit the Jackpot, because this Thread is Triggering your Karma just when Letting Go of Old Habits is most Lit Up. In this case you want to Study the whole process pretty closely, so that you get a good idea of how it started and how it developed, so you’re more likely to be Prepared for it the next time it happens. The sooner you catch yourself starting to Repeat a Self-Judgment, the Easier it is to Revert! And the Easier it is to Revert! the Earlier you’ll catch yourself, and you’re off on a whole new Virtuous Spiral toward greater Self-Love.

We shift our “Fate” from Karma to Choice by Becoming Aware of our Patterns. It’s like a Muscle. The more often you allow the Old Bummers to pull you Down, the stronger the Karmic Pattern becomes. Every time you Revert! the process, you strengthen your New Habit of Enhanced Self-Appreciation and Grace.

The astrological Pattern is Mars-Chiron Opposite Moon-Narcissus in 12-16 Aries/Libra.

Chiron, the Wounded Healer, who renounced Immortality to escape the Pain, Empathized with himself, and Changed the Pattern of Eternal Suffering. He Chose Mortality, but you know, as the economists say, in the long run not too many folks get off this Rock Alive. And since Linear Time is done for anyway, does it really matter what Time the robot mechanical clock says when we jet off to our Next Adventure? I know, the Ego resists Mortality like the Plague, because that’s its Job. But 999 times out of a thousand, it’s just a Molt, the Olde Ego Resisting another Makeover.

Mars is Action, so Taking Action to Shift to Compassion should be fairly easy once you remember to do it. Mars can also be Irritation, so if we combine Chiron’s initial tendency toward Despair with the Irritable side of Mars, we can easily get Angry at ourself. That in itself is a bit Self-Abusive, isn’t it. But we can Change it.

The Midpoint of Aries is a busy place. It features Gentle Male Sovereignty (Star Alderamin at 14 Aries), Freedom of Action (Star Alpheratz at 15), Awareness of Ascension (Mars at 12), Liberation from our Mental Cage (13), Considerable Dissolution with the Option of Laser Clarity (14-15), and Through Depths of Emotion to Clarity of Purpose (Chiron at 16). Very Promising, as a whole.

The Opposition is the Second Dimension, The Priestess, Maintenance of Tradition. It’s not necessarily Stodgy, but it easily gets Hung up on Dualities like Right and Wrong.

Asteroid Narcissus is of course about Obsession with the Perfection of our Ego, and the Moon mostly about our Instincts. The Midpoint of Libra is pretty Spacey – it’s about Being Lost in Linear Time (Narcissus at 14 Libra), and Intimacy with the Whole of Earth History (Moon at 15). Hints of the Ancestors, on all Levels right down to the Microbes and the Minerals. This is a very Deep Background for our Chironean Pain and Liberation and our Martian Action, and seems like a Meditation on the Evolution of our Planet, our Species, and our Identities.
