Where to start?
(1) With the big Jupiter Septile Yod I guess. It’s with us from around 1 October through 7 October. Remember last week’s Magic Storm? That was about one version of what we call “Magic” – the Miracle of Timing. It’s one of the greatest Blessings that follow from developing your Intuition. You can spend years (or Lifetimes) trying to do something without success, when the Timing isn’t right. Then, when the Timing is right, you can accomplish it in a Heartbeat.
Don Juan was always trying to teach Castaneda to “Save his Power,” and this is what he meant – don’t waste your Energy when the Timing isn’t right. This is the Seventh Harmonic; planets one seventh of the way ’round the Zodiac from one another, or two or three sevenths. How do we know when the Timing is right? Our Intuition tells us, but we have to Listen to it and not let the noisy mind overrule it because it would be hard to defend in a debate. The Moon, in its esoteric Meaning of Instinct and Authenticity, also plays a big role.
Look for places where you’re wasting Energy fretting about not doing something that your Shoulds are nagging about, when the Timing isn’t right, and places where you feel like you’re on a treadmill. Watch for things that happen in a flash when you expected them to take forever. We’re Learning here about the Held Emotions and Other People’s Expectations (such as Believing we have to explain ourself) that block us from Trusting our Intuition implicitly, instantly, and unquestioningly.
This next itemdddd deserves a long essay of its own, but I don’t have time right now, so I’ll be “brief”…
(2) As we’ve discussed at length, we’re being Asked in no uncertain terms to take Responsibility to Embrace the Brilliance, Gorgeousness, Talent, and Fabulosity of the Truth of our Abandoned Genius. Because the Programming that forced us to Abandon this part of ourself was Abusive, we have to work through a great deal of Pain to get to this Responsibility.
(3) Until around 10 October, we’re Gifted with unusual Ease in this task. You definitely want to take advantage of this. How? The easiest way is Self-Empathy – and being constantly Watchful for whatever you’re Feeling in the Present Moment…
- Anger? Any Self-Judgment there? “You poor Sweetheart, you’re questioning your Right to Self-Protection, aren’t you.”
- Worry? Undifferentiated Unease? “You poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Anxious, aren’t you.”
- Not sure what’s going on? Trying to figure it out mentally? “You poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Confused, aren’t you.”
Wait – Confusion’s the first sign of Growth, right? Hooray, the Timing is Right to Celebrate!
(4) It gets better. Surrendering to our Rebirth (which may of course Feel like Ego Death), and Surrendering to the Unknown (which is always Scary), will unleash tremendous Grace on not only the Challenge of Letting Go of our Limiting Programming, but also on any unfinished elements of our many-year task of Removing our Masks and becoming more Authentic to Who We Really Are. That part is Given to us, all we need to do is stop Resisting it.
We do have to add one Energy on our own, however, to make it all work Effortlessly. That Energy is Bravery and Persistence. If we’re Conscious of our Fear of Death and the Unknown, we can Tap Out the Overwhelm, Locate it in our Bodies, Warm it, Soften around it, Love it where it is, and Breathe into it. Considering what’s Going On, this will be a Big Order, not because it’s so difficult to Tap or Warm or Breathe, but because what we Fear is so Big that we can’t see it.
We’re looking at our Relationships, our Economic Situation, our Health, our Well-Being, our Anxiety, our Emotions – everything facing and surrounding us. But what’s Going On is Bigger than that. A lot Bigger. Imagine a cloud of Darkness surrounding your House, then your Neighborhood, then your Town, your County, your Region, your Country, your Continent, your Planet, your Solar System, your Galaxy. That’s what we are Unconsciously Fearing here, and for most of us, it’s not Conscious. Once we’re Conscious of it, we can Tap Out the Overwhelm, Locate it in our Bod, Love it, Breathe into it.
That part’s “easy,” once we get Conscious of our Fear of Transformation, and find the Courage and Persistence to find the Light Switch that’s hidden within All That Darkness somewhere, and pull it. It’s Intimidating, but the Light that’s Behind the Sun is far more immense. Bruce Cockburn said it well half a century ago…
So does Lisa Rising Berry, who advises us that “We have been taught to fear Dark energy, but it is the source of all creation,” at…
It’s a longer version than Bruce’s, but worthwhile, as she ties it in to many ancient and recent traditions, which, remarkably, we can and will match to what’s Going On in the sky now.
Expansion, recall, is one of the many obscure variations of PIAVA. Find the Light Behind the Sun by Grounding yourself, then move your Consciousness up and out through the center of the top of your Head till you Connect to the Light.
(5-11) We’ll translate these into English soon.
(1) The Septile Yod points at Jupiter (Expansion) from a base of the Waxing Septile from Ceres (Sustainability) to the Conjunction between Neptune (Culture, Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity) and the South Node (Held Emotion and Hidden Skills).
(2) We’re in the midst of a long-lived Chiron (Despair and Miracle) T-Square (Mastery through Challenge) on a base of the Opposition between Pholus-Ixion (Responsibility-Genius) and dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential), the latter joined by asteroid Veritas (Truth).
(3) Asteroid Karma (Inertia) has come into a Sextile to Haumea (Rebirth), with Chiron at the Far Midpoint. That creates a Chiron Diamond Star (Difficult Challenge Made Easier) across the Chiron T-Square, as both Haumea and Karma form Trine Bridges across the T-Square, in the form of a “bowl of Grace” under it.
(4) Asteroid Karma and Ixion-Pholus join with Uranus-Eris (Removing our Masks, Yintegrity) to form a Grand Trine, a Haumea Kite, and a Chaos-Veritas Kite, leaving one Vacancy to Create a Grand Sextile. The Vacancy is 23 Capricorn, which is about Bravery in Combat. Capricorn 23 is also the location of the January 2020 Pluto-Saturn Initiation.
All these Goings On (#2-5), as has often been the case recently, are in 22-25 of their respective Signs. The mid-October (and all month) Nemesis-Juno Conjunction ( https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/09/30/nemesis/ ) is in the same range, at 24 Scorpio, as is the Nova in the Constellation Lupus.
Thanks to Eliza Ayres for leading us to Lisa’s post – https://bluedragonjournal.com/2016/10/05/lisa-rising-berry-azoth-energy-coming-to-fruition/
(5) By around 10 October, Karma breaks out of the Diamond Star and Grand Trine, but asteroid Hopi (Respect for all Things) moves into Opposition to Chiron, completing the Grand Cross till around 20 October. The Grand Cross will still be Trine-Bridged by a Golden Rectangle and Quincunx-Bridged by Haumea and Uranus-Eris.
The trace of our previous Bravery Vacancy will still make a Grand Trine with Haumea and Chaos, and Kites pointing to Uranus-Eris and Ixion-Pholus.
(6) We have two Initiations today (5 October). Normally we’d cast Initiations as the centerpiece of our Interpretations – their relegation to footnotes shows how Big (#1-4) are.
First, Quaoar (Survival) Initiates Moira (Fate), which sounds pretty heavy. The Degree is 28 Sagittarius, an old bridge still in use, and of course the Galactic Center, which is a pretty old bridge all right.
(7) Second, Lilith (Yindependence) Initiates Venus (Values) – the Blue Kachina that Lisa mentions, a significant milestone on our path toward the Yang Feminine Energy that we expect to replace the Patriarchy. It occurs at 16 Scorpio, which symbolizes a girl breaking into a smile. Mid-Scorpio is one of the four “Horsepersons of the Apocalyse” or Power Points of the Zodiac.
(8) The Red Kachina that Lisa mentions is found in the Initiations of Mars (Energy, Action) by Hylonome (Grieving the Disattachment from an Archetype) and Chariklo (Charm and Grace)…
First, Hylonome-Mars 29 September in 2 Capricorn, three Gothic Rose windows, one damaged by war.
(9) Second, Chariklo-Mars 3 October in 4 Capricorn, outfitting a large canoe.
(10) On 8 October, Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) and OR10 (Irruptions from the Deep Unconscious) Conjoin. This is a long-term, slow-moving astroevent, and can be blamed for much of our Pain, as we become Aware of and Let Go of old Abuse. See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/10/02/trigger-warnings/ .
(11) At our mid-month Yin-Gate Nemesis-Juno Conjunction (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/09/30/nemesis/ ), Mars will be Initiated by Pluto (Transformation, aka Trance-reFormation), which is Opposing Sirius, which Lisa mentions in regard to the Hopi Prophesies.
