Blue Turquoise will help us focus and transmit the Energy of Collaboration and Cooperation that the Planet so badly needs.
And there are several. After we talk about the Moon-Pluto that finishes up the Uranus Station, we’ll consider Moon-Jupiter and Moon-Lilith. Then we’ll talk about the Degrees.
From 2am until 2pm PST December 18, it’s Moon Opposing Pluto that runs the show, along with help from Pallas Opposite Chiron. Oppositions are about Awareness – Duality made manifest, giving us the opportunity to shift our Attention from heads or tails to the Coin – to shift from Either/Or to Both/And.
Pallas (Boundaries, Edges) and Chiron (Despair and Miracles) shine a powerful Light on our Limiting Beliefs. The easiest way to escape from Despair or Discouragement is to shift your Belief in Limitation. The Pallas-Chiron Opposition has been in effect since November 25, and will fade by December 22. It’s a strong point in the Pallas-Chiron Cycle that began in late February 2012 at 6 Pisces – “The dedication of folks to the service of their community, and the assurance that it will be emotionally sustained by the people at large.” Sounds like a Choice Point between the Community of Shoppers and Consumers, and the New-Paradigm Community of Sharing and Collaborating.
Moon Opposite Pluto
You can see Moon as Random Emotions, as Instinct, as Authenticity, or as Manifestation. Or, of course, All of the Above. The Moon looks like Random Emotions when we’re out of touch with our Authenticity, so we don’t recognize our Instincts as useful Guides. Hard to Manifest when that happens. Pluto doesn’t take prisoners, so this opposition gives us the Opportunity to bring that more into Alignment. You can think of the Moon here as Uranus’s moll.
Yes, Manifesting Yintegrity looks painful from this side (the side where we’re out of it, er, I mean, out of Yintegrity), but the sooner we make the move, the easier it will be.
But it’s accompanied by a couple of other Windows. For instance, from 5am until 11am PST, the Moon-Pluto Opposition joins the Pallas-Chiron Opposition to make a Mystic Rectangle in 10-13 degrees of the Magnetic Signs…
This Portal gives us an excellent opportunity to gracefully find ways to stretch our Edges in new ways, to make room for our Authenticity. It’s a PIAVA thing, so don’t try to force it.
Yes, there are some entrenched Beliefs that will have to change in order to make room for all this newfound Authenticity.
Which will make for some interesting overlaps. For instance, 5-7am PST will overlap the Uranus T-Square and the Mystic Rectangle…
Where would you have to stretch, in order to feel more True to yourself and Secure in yourself? Is there something you need to tell someone? I Wonder how you could tell them, and stay Safe as well.
From 7-9am we already have those two Windows open, and the Vesta T-Square opens too – maximizing our leverage…
So what is it that holds you back? Is it some Belief about what’s right and wrong, so you feel Ashamed or Guilty? Or just some Expectation about how they’ll react? You don’t want to “spin” your Story so it sounds good, because folks see through that. And you don’t want to just reject your own Beliefs, because you’ll see through that. You want to PIAVA some Magical way to restore your own Self-Respect, so even if you have to make Amends, you can stand up straight and look them in the eye while you’re doing it.
Or you may need to set a Boundary with someone, and make it clear that while they’ve intimidated you in the past, you Intend to change that in the future. You might do that verbally, or Energetically – using Mirrors for instance. It should be easier in this Window than you Expect.
And from 9-11am, the Mystic Rectangle and the Vesta T-Square Portals are both open…
What is it you Want, or want to Be, that your Beliefs won’t let you have or be? Guess what. You don’t really Want that. You just think you Want it because it looks good from inside the Birdcage that your Beliefs have you trapped in. Once you step outside of the Cage and look in the direction of what you thought you Wanted, it’ll be quite different – and much prettier. You’ll be surprised at how much your Belief warped your Want. Now you only have to PIAVA that you can find a way to stay Safe outside your old Birdcage!
Lots of adventures for one half-day! Then things shift…
Moon Conjunct Jupiter
The Moon Conjoins Jupiter (Expansion) and Trines (Easy) Saturn (Definition) for about twelve hours starting around 4pm PST December 18, lighting up 18-21 degrees of the Water Signs. The Jupiter-Saturn Trine is Live from November 28 till December 25. Jupiter’s Retrograde, so the whole Jupiter-Saturn-Trine province runs from early July 2013 through early June 2014. This is a Waning Trine, part of the May 2000 Jupiter-Saturn Cycle born in 23 Taurus – “A jewelry shop filled with valuable gems.” Remember the “Dot-Com Crash”? Almost to the day.
The “valuable gems” are the fruits of the last couple hundred years of Industrial Revolution. The internal combustion engine, for instance, and electricity and the telephone and wages. All those things that are up for renegotiation here in the new Century. Jupiter-Saturn Cycles deserve their own book. But in a nutshell, 2000-2020 is about reclaiming any of the Industrial-Era jewels we want to carry with us into the Computer Age.
The Waning Trine is the time when we make a final evaluation about what will be most useful for us in the future. NSA surveillance, for instance? Wage slavery? Global Warming? The Trine is closing up in a week or so; it’ll be a lot easier to make choices now, than it will be again until 2020. Resistance from the profiteers of the previous Centuries will be intense.
Jupiter is simultaneously being Squared by Ceres (Sustainability, Sustenance). This Waxing Square brings the Ceres-Jupiter Cycle out into the open. It began in June 2012 at 7 Gemini, “A Well with bucket and rope under the shade of majestic Trees.” A Square often feels like a Crisis – we’re asked to make Choices, and the options are all compromises. We become Masters by making these Choices – we’d otherwise be Unconscious of the Issues involved. Will we Sustain those majestic Trees so we can nurture ourselves with the Water from their roots? Don’t neglect the Water = Emotion = Moon connection and our Work from the earlier part of the day…
How do we really feel when they fell the Trees to make room for more profits? Will our Planet continue to nurture us if we continue to allow short-term profits to dictate all of our Choices? If it’s not too late to turn around already, it will be soon. If we all PIAVAed a nurturing Collaboration with out Planet, we may help shift the Energy. Even a small shift today can make a huge shift over the Future.
Moon Conjunct Lilith
Jupiter and Lilith are only four degrees apart, so when we use our three degrees of Sensitivity, Moon-Jupiter and Moon-Lilith have four hours of overlap. Moon-Lilith spans 19-23 Cancer and the first twelve hours of December 19, peaking at 6am PST. Lilith left Adam because his Greed for Power was not Sustainable, and because bowing to his Competitive Ego would interfere with her own Instincts about Collaborative Survival. When the Moon crosses Lilith it triggers Lilith’s Waxing Square to Eris. Messing with Eris isn’t good for a body.
The Lilith-Eris Cycle that we’re bringing into the open was Initiated in early October 2011 at 23 Aries, “A pregnant woman in light summer dress.” I’m not sure that symbol shows much preparation for winter. But it certainly shows faith in the Sustainability of Life. And of course Saturn is Squaring Eris, and Trining Lilith, making the Pythagorean Tricolor that we talked about earlier…
We can resolve an apparent conflict between Integrity and Denial by Wondering what’s The Most Important Angle to Attend to – that Wondering and Attention will unleash the Grace waiting to Focus on Integrity.
The Moon-Lilith Window brings this into sharp focus. The overlap with Moon-Jupiter, from midnight to 4am PST December 19, will give us something like…
Okay, if we PIAVA a significant shift in the Human and Global drama away from tragedy and toward Cooperation and Collaboration, then specifically, what Angle should you focus your Attention on? This is a huge vessel we’re trying to turn, it will take a monstrous group effort – where is your station in the effort? I think we each need to focus on how we Want to see the World and Humanity change, because that’s where we’ll be able to focus the most passion. Make it as narrow as you can, but whatever you PIAVA, ask for a gentle and loving and rapid and complete release of all Resistance.
The Eris-Lilith-Saturn Pythagorean Tricolor endures until January 14, 2014.
The Moon-Lilith crossing also triggers another Pythagorean Tricolor across the Lilith-Eris Square, as Mercury Trines Eris and Quincunxes Lilith. This Tricolor is with us from December 16 to December 2o. We could express this one as
We can resolve an apparent conflict between Integrity and Denial by Wondering what’s The Most Important Angle to Talk about – that Wondering and Talking will unleash the Grace waiting to Focus on Integrity.
It spans the same time period as the Eris-Lilith-Saturn Tricolor, so will have the same overlap with the Moon-Jupiter-Ceres-Saturn Configuration. So…
When we PIAVA a significant shift in the Human and Global drama away from tragedy and toward Cooperation and Collaboration, and Discover what Angle we should focus our Attention on, then we need to Talk about it. Not to Expect any specific result or convince anybody of anything, just to put it out into the World. You don’t know who will overhear, and for whom it will be the “straw that broke the back” of a passing Tea-Partier or Climate-Change-Denier or Greedhead.
It’s a busy few days.
For each of these Portals we’ve specified where in the Zodiac it’s happening…
- Moon-Pluto T-Squares: 8-12 of the Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn)
- The Mystic Rectangle: 10-13 of the Magnetic Signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, Pisces)
- Moon-Jupiter-Lilith: 18-24 of the Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn)
- Saturn: 18-22 of the Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
- The Initiatory Degrees: 23 Aries, 23 Taurus, 7 Gemini, 6 Pisces
If you know where your Natal planets are, and you have planets in any of these zones, that will show where you will have the greatest Power to change the Future.
December 21 brings us the Solstice, and Venus turns Retrograde. From December 23 through 31, Mars comes around to Oppose Uranus and make a T-Square to Pluto. Eris turns Direct January 10, so we’ll be feeling the impact of her Station by the end of December.
