Tumultuous Week 3

March 31, 2020

The dwarf planets, especially those out beyond Pluto, represent essential fragments of the Universal Unconscious, and by extension essential fragments of our Cultural and Personal Unconscious.  The Personal Unconscious comprises everything that the Ego disowns.  If you’ve ever said “I’m not one of those people!” or “I can’t stand people like that!,” you’ve just Identified a significant segment of your Personal Unconscious.  Similarly, if you’ve ever said “I’m NOT one of those people who…” you can be sure that those people reside in your Unconscious.  Which means you either want to Own that part of Yourself, or Let Go of that Karma, or both.

The dwarf planet Ixion, which reached its Peak Energy at 1am 30 March 2020 in 1 Capricorn, is all about our Hidden and Forbidden Genius.  It doesn’t take a lot of Genius to stay between the lines that someone else has drawn to keep us under Control.  Those lines are our first Barrier to Expressing our Genius.  The next couple of Barriers are the lines we have to keep ourself under Control.  Some of those were installed by our Programmers, some are Karmic, some follow from our Values, and some from our Personality or our Experiences.

If we don’t like to Shout, for instance, why is that?  Was it just not done in our Family of Origin?  Were we Punished for it?  Did we ever have occasion to do it?  Did we do it then?  Was it Spontaneous, or did we have to Overcome our own Resistance?  What happened?  Were we Embarrassed?  Was our Message Received?  Did we Get what we were Shouting For?

If we want to Change the World – and Goddess Knows it Needs Changing – we’ll probably have to Shout, maybe a lot.  Even if we Speak Softly and carry a Big Stick, our Message may not be Received, and for every one of us, our Message is indispensable for Earth Repair.

After 11 September 2001, I didn’t keep track of the individual Moon-Out-of-Bounds sessions after the first one, so I don’t know if they’re likely to Intensify the Energies or not, but we’re about to find out.  As it does for a few days every two weeks during its OOB Decade, the Moon goes Out-of-Bounds at 11 am PDT on 31 March 2020, and returns In-Bounds at 3pm PDT on 1 April.  It’s not a fair test, though, because while the Moon is OOB, dwarf planet Pholus Stands Still, at 11am PDT on 1 April (in 5 Capricorn).

Both “Out-of-Bounds” and “Standing Still” make the Energy of a planet (or “Light,” in the case of the Moon) much Stronger than usual.  The Moon and Pholus won’t be Competing for our Attention though, they’ll just Amp each other Up.  The Moon is about our Instincts, and Emotionality.  Pholus is about the Possibility or Likelihood of Being Blindsided by something we weren’t ready for.  If we Discount our Intuitions, the Likelihood increases.

How do we Differentiate Instinct from Emotionality?  Is it “just” Anxiety, or is it Instinct?  Wishful thinking, or a glimpse of the Future?  I Differentiate these by alternating Tapping and Theta Healing, as I described at the end of https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2020/03/24/changing-vitality-patterns-new-moon/.  Emotions are often the Messenger for Intuitions, so don’t make them second-class citizens in your Internal Dramas.  You might start your Theta-Tapping Loops by Commanding Clarity.

The stock market it a great indicator of Emotionality – I’ll be watching it between 10am and noon PDT on 31 March.  And of course the Coronavirus has everyone riled up.  I can easily picture the Antichrist Abusing another reporter for quoting what he said before he had to pretend that whatever happened was all his idea.  Or other unsettling news about the Pandemic.  It’s a Global Detox, so be Mindful that whatever you Lose, if anything, might be what Stands between you and the Future You’ve Always Wanted.

The larger context is Global Warming, as the dwarf planet that symbolizes our Survival Instincts (Quaoar) is also Standing Still, culminating 3 April at 9:10 pm PDT (also in 5 Capricorn).  The astrological indicator for Global Warming is the Union of Pholus and Quaoar, which is consummated 21 February 2022.  Here they’re Standing Still only two days and 22 arcminutes apart.  So we shouldn’t be Surprised to see a Big Weather Event this week either.

It doesn’t help that the Pholus and Quaoar Stations are also Merged with a major symbol for our Karma (the South Node).  However, they do make a Self-Resolving Challenge (Diamond Star).  The Challenge (T-Square base) arises from Potential Confusion or Competition between Manifesting Self-Love (Sappho-Makemake) and Eschewing Codependence (Lilith-Chiron).  And of course Friction between either of those two Energies and the Pholus-Quaoar (-South Node-Ixion) Global Warming Energy.  We might be Eschewing Codependence with a Vengeance, but the Coronavirus could leave us begging for food and shelter.

The Grace or Resolution (the base of the Finger of God) in the Self-Resolving Challenge arises from Accepting and Exercising Conscious Control over our Vitality and Health (Lachesis-Varuna) and Becoming Conscious of Limiting Beliefs that had been Founded in Fear and inappropriately Cemented into Values that are now Obsolete (Venus-Vesta-Sedna).  We may be Exposed to Ego Death here as our Consciousness Changes quickly, but it should be an Easy one, since the Challenge is Self-Resolving.

Make a mental note of Who You Were a week ago, so you can Compare it to Who You’ve Become a week from now.  If you’re Feeling Dizzy or Confused or Lost or Grieving, that’s a Good Sign.  This is the Ego Molt process that you’re Feeling.  If you take an Honest Look into the Future just beyond your Molt, you’ll find Grounded Excitement – especially if you can Accept your Feelings without having to Assign Reasons for them.

There Must Be Even More

March 8, 2020

I love Dr. Chu’s Metaphor in the previous post.  In case you didn’t listen through her video, she was saying that the general approach of allopathic medicine is like stepping on a Cat’s tail.  Every time you do that, the Cat opens its mouth (to howl).  Modern medicine debates whether to sew the Cat’s mouth shut, or feed it dumbcane, without considering lifting its foot.

It’s the same with our Karmic Self-Sabotage – we’re enormously Creative about how to Ameliorate our Suffering, but we’re unable or unwilling to take our foot off of our own tail.  Many of us are so used to being the Victim of our Self-Sabotaging Habits that we don’t even Realize that the Perp is our own foot.  Well, this is the weekend to Notice, and to lift our foot.

Apart from all the Action that the previous There Must Be More post spoke of – Action in the 6 March 2020 astrology for (the Station of dwarf planet Chaos in) the neighborhood of 25 Degrees (of any Sign) – there’s also Strong astrology Lit Up for planets around 5 Degrees.  There are three primary Poster Children…

  • Big-Time Bad Karma around Global Warming.
  • The Depressive Downside of Codependence.
  • The Soul Meets the Ego’s Resistance as It Descends.

Let’s take them one at a time…

Big-Time Bad Karma around Global Warming

Two Important dwarf planets have been Dancing with one another for several years, getting more and more Intimate as they do.  They Consummate their Dance on 23 February 2022, after getting Perilously Close (within 70 Arcseconds) in early April 2021 (they’re ¼ of a Degree apart as we speak).  One of these dwarf planets symbolizes our Survival Instincts (Quaoar), and the other represents Taking Full Responsibility (Pholus).

The 2022 Initiation occurs in 8 Capricorn, “In a Sun-lit home, domesticated birds sing joyously: The wholesome happiness which subservience to the ideals and patterns of a well-established culture brings to those who accept them unreservedly.”  Isn’t that scary – that’s how we got where we are. with everyone Singing Joyously about the Glories of an allegedly Dead Planet that can be Dissected at will for personal gain. 

Of course, if we have a Culture that Respects and Reanimates the Natural World by then, that’d be great.  What do you suppose the odds of that are?  If we Allow ourselves to move to 5D, they should be pretty good.

Their Dance is the Obvious astrological correlate of Global Climate Change and all of the other Efforts that the Industrial Era has made, and continues to Try to make, Consciously or otherwise, to Destroy the Habitability of our Planet.  The Coronavirus is only one example…

It’s Important to distinguish Responsibility from Blame.  Blame looks backwards to Assign Cause.  Responsibility looks forward to Improve Outcomes.  When we look at the Mythology behind our astrosymbol for Responsibility (Pholus), we see that he got Dead by failing to take all Possibilities into account.  In our earlier There Must Be More post we talked about Trusting New Information that will take us Beyond Our Limitations.  That’s why we talk about Taking Full Responsibility.

What does this mean for us?  It means we need to Ask ourself, What are my Survival Instincts telling me that I am Denying?  It won’t be Easy to Answer that Honestly, because our Ego will try to Intercede in its own behalf and try to continue Denying anything that threatens to lean toward Facing Emotions that We’d rather Die than Feel.

The Pholus-Quaoar Conjunction [our Response to our Survival Instincts] is very close to the South Node [our Held Emotions] in the 6 March Chaos-Station chart. 

The South Node crosses Quaoar on 8-9 March, and Pholus on 13 March, both Initiations in 5 Capricorn, “Indians on the warpath – while some men row a well-filled canoe, others in it perform a war-dance: The mobilization of physical and emotional energies in a spirit of conquest.”  These are roughly 17½-year Cycles.  So who are the Indians here?  Greta’s team?

The South Node crosses Ixion [our Forbidden Genius] on 19 June in 30 Sagittarius,”The Pope blessing the faithful.”  Ixion also Conjoins Pholus-Quaoar-South Node.  This crossing, and the 16-year Cycle it Initiates, should Teach us a great deal about how our Forbidden Genius was Forbidden. 

Expect it to be Karmic – ie, not Present Moment, no matter how Horrible it Feels.  If we manage to Stay Open during the Ego Deaths associated with this crossing, we may be able to Let Go of the Forbidden part and get on with Healing the Planet.

It’s intriguing that in this chart drawn for Pacific Time, this symbol for Climate Change et al (Pholus-Quaoar-South Node Conjunction) is also closely Conjunct to the astrosymbol for our Community (the Midheaven), which of course depends on Time of Day and hence Longitude.  I’m Wondering if this has anything to do with the fact that the Epicenter of Coronavirus Activity in the US (Kirkland WA) lies in the Pacific Time Zone.  It’s also intriguing that Kirkland, Milan, and Wuhan are each Separated by one third of the Globe.

We’ve run out of time, as I try to lift my foot off my habit of burning the candle at both ends.  We’ll look at…

  • The Depressive Downside of Codependence (Lilith-Chiron).
  • The Soul Meets the Ego’s Resistance as It Descends (Venus-Karma-Atopos-Uranus).

…tomorrow.

Survival or Bust VII Eclipse

December 24, 2019

Lets start with a review of essential research…

https://foodrevolution.org/blog/truth-about-chocolate/

And, thanks to alchemist0310 and Starhawk, a Prayer for the Solstice…

When the center of the Moon crosses in front of the center of the Sun, but the Moon is distant enough from Earth in its ovalish Orbit that the Moon doesn’t fully cover the face of the Sun, then rather than a Total Eclipse it’s called an Annular Eclipse.  That’s what happens at the 25 December 2019 (9am PST) New Moon.  It would look something like this…

…if we were in the narrow red band in this next picture…

And look like a Partial Solar Eclipse in the partially-shaded areas below…

The more heavily shaded areas are nighttime.

Eclipses are, Paradoxically, about Illumination, because the best way to make us Aware of something that we Take For Granted, is to Remove it.  Like Birdsong, for instance.  During a Total Eclipse, all of our Feathered Brothers and Sisters are eerily Silent.  It’s like someone throws a switch and turns off the background Music the moment Totality hits.  Then turns it back on again as soon as Daylight resumes.  It Feels as Strange as the Midday Semi-Darkness.

The Eclipse falls on the Cusp of Capricorn.  What else have we been reading about lately that’s falling on that Cusp?  It’s within our usual three-Degree Sensitivity of Jupiter/Expansion, Quaoar/Survival Instincts, and Pholus/Full Respond-Ability.  If we stretch our Sensitivity a bit, it’s also Merged with the South Node/Held Emotions and Ixion/Forbidden Genius.  Busy busy busy.  These are the planets we’ve been equating to the Climate Crisis, not to mention the Confusion about whether the Political Economy of the World is about to Surge or Collapse.

It’s at a corner of two Configurations that look like Take-Out Boxes from a Chinese restaurant (or, as we usually package them, a Square Fez with a Chinstrap, that is, a Zodical Loop consisting of Square-Sextile-Square-Sextile-Sextile).  The Configuration features three Challenges (Squares) and four Pay Attention! Flags (Fingers of God).  The Four planets/Energies we’re Asked to Pay Attention to are…

  • The Climate and Existential Crisis (Eclipse-Jupiter-Quaoar-Pholus).
  • Manifestation (dwarf planet Makemake).
  • Vitality (dwarf planet Varuna).
  • Intrusive Memories (dwarf planet OR10).

Our three Challenges are…

  • Are we Skillful Enough with Abundance to Survive the Climate Crisis and it’s accompanying Disruptions (Eclipse et al Square Makemake)?  Our recommendation for maximizing this is to Strive for as much Neutrality as you can muster, by Seeking and Embracing your Held Emotions (South Node).  Neutrality doesn’t mean Absence of Passion or Action.  It just means that our Actions and Non-Actions are Well Conceived and Effective, and we’re Not Attached to Outcomes.  Our best portal into our hidden Held Emotions may be through our Judgments, which often mask What We’d Rather Die than Feel.  Our Judgments are different from our Preferences, though the latter is often used to try to hide the former.
  • Are we Conscious Enough about the Descent of our Soul into Flesh, to be Loving with the Changes in our Body and Vitality that are needed to Make Room for it (Varuna Square Uranus)?  We may be Challenged by what appears to be Illness, which mainstream Medicine may or may not have Diagnoses for.  We’re probably better off if it doesn’t, because then we won’t also have to Struggle against the Soul-Numbing Drugs and Body-Crippling Surgeries they want to foist on us.  A possible best-of-both-worlds strategy?  Go with Acupuncture.
  • How do we Interpret all those weird Voices and seemingly-Random Memories, Dreams, and Hallucinations we’re having (asteroid Klotho/New Beginnings Square OR10)Those Movements you keep seeing out of the corner of your Eye?  Faeries?  Visitors from the Other Side?  Just your Imagination?  Are they Friendly, or are you Afraid to find out?  Those “Random” Flashes from Childhood?  Do you Welcome them?  What do you Feel when they arise?  They may be other doorways to Held Emotions you can Choose to Let Go Of.  The people we’re running into that we haven’t seen in years?  The unexpected events that Mirror Ancient events?  Do we Embrace them as more Opportunities?

Here’s the Eclipse chart…

OOB Mercury

December 22, 2019

Formal and informal astrologers Learn early on about planets turning Retrograde.  We emphasize the Stations of the planets.  Those are the times when they’re slowed to a crawl, just before they stop to turn around and (from our Perspective here on Earth) start to back up, or turn around and go forward again.  We do that because we’ve observed that the impact upon us of a planet is strongest when it’s Stationary.  And it’s one of the best times to Learn what that planet’s Energy feels like.

But most of us are much less familiar with the influence of planets that are going Out of Bounds, or “OOB.”  That means they’re overhead at a position more than a fourth of the way from the Equator to either Pole (0.26 to be exact, or 23:27 Degrees of Declination, which for practical purposes is the same as Latitude; 23:27 Degrees is the maximum that the Sun moves north or south of the Equator).  Most of the planets rotate in a single plane around the Sun, so most of them don’t stray much from being overhead at the Equator.  But some do, and when they do, it changes their Dynamic, usually making their Influence Stronger.

Mercury (Mind, Communication, Short-Distance Travel) will be giving us an Opportunity to Experience this for the next several weeks.  Mercury goes Out of Bounds on 22 December 2019 (4pm PST), and stays OOB till 12 January (5:30 am PST).  Pay Attention to how this impacts your Young Life…

Do your Thoughts make you more Anxious than usual?  Less Anxious?  Are your Thoughts more or less Penetrating or Discriminating or Judgmental or Decisive or Prominent?  How does any of that make you Feel?  Is the News more Dramatic than usual?  Are you Reacting to it more Intensely than usual, or Feeling Detached?

What about your Communications, both those you Receive and those you Give?  Are they more or less Anxious?  Insightful?  Concise?  Forgiving?  Muddled?  Are you Communicating more or less than you usually do?  When you Communicate, is your Tone of Voice and Body Language Congruent with the Emotions you’re Feeling, and their Degree of Intensity?  More or less so than would normally be the case?  Are you being more Passionate or more Detached than usual with your Communications?

And how are you on the Road – driving, walking, bicycling, skating, sledding, skiing, running, riding the bus or train, or however you Travel on short trips?  More or less Attentive?  Distracted?  Rushed?  Relaxed?  How is traffic?  Faster or Slower?  More Crowded than usual?  More Confrontational or more Forgiving?  More or fewer missed Connections, flat tires, sprains, Collisions, tickets, detours, or other Difficulties?  Does Travel feel more or less Dangerous than usual?  How patient or impatient are you with any Travel glitches?

Mercury is never far from the Sun, so during this time it spans 21 Sagittarius to 23 Capricorn.  Those are very busy Degrees.  Mercury will be crossing many planets, and it we can Learn a lot about the planet and about ourself while Mercury’s Laser Light shines on them…

  • Mercury crossing Aletheia 23-24 December – Learning Opportunities re the Truth of the Heart.
  • Crossing asteroid Bee-Zed 24-25 December – Learning re Transcendance.
  • Dwarf planet Ixion 28 December – re our Hidden or Forbidden Genius.
  • Dwarf planet Pholus 30 December – re important issues that we aren’t Aware of or would rather Minimize.
  • Dwarf planet Quaoar 31 December – re our Survival Instincts.
  • Jupiter 2 January – re our Expansion.
  • South Node 3 January – re our Held Emotions.
  • Dwarf planet Hylonome 7 January – re our Self-Sovereignty.
  • Saturn, Pluto, and dwarf planet Ceres 12 January – re Sustaining our Focus on Transformation.

 

Survival or Bust VI Solstice

December 17, 2019

Dwarf planets symbolizing Survival (Quaoar), Responding (Pholus), and Rule-Bending (Ixion) are all sitting on the Cusp of the Sign of Rules and Structures (Capricorn) as the Sun reaches the furthest extent of its Southward travel and begins to turn around and head back North.  The December 21, 2019 (8pm PST) Solstice chart exerts its influence till the March Equinox.

We can combine the principles of Rules, Rule-Bending, Responding, and Surviving any way we want, but when I look at the State of the World it seems to me that the most appropriate way is something like Since the Cultural Structures we Live in are rapidly Destroying the Natural Basis for our Survival, if we want to Respond to our Desire to Survive, we’ll have to Bend the Rules we Learned in School.

The Master Megacorporations, the 1%, and their Poster Child the Antichrist will probably see it as Man, do we ever know how to Bend the Rules and Get Away with it, and there’s no denying that.  We’re still five days from the actual Solstice though, and given their propensity to Self-Destruct, there’s no guarantee that by the weekend they’ll still be “on top of the World” – that is, in the Missionary Position on Mother Gaia, and Love it ain’t.

The (Sun-Quaoar-Pholus-Ixion) crowd (Stellium) on the Capricorn Cusp is Challenged (Squared) by our Ancient Habits (asteroid Karma) and our tendency to Feel like we’re Victims (Chiron).  As long as we’re Victims of our Self-Destructive Patterns, we don’t know that we have the Power to Change them.  Even if we Feel Enlightened, we all have some lingering Karmic Baggage, or we wouldn’t be Overwhelmed by the impending End of Civilization as we know it.  So our Mission over the next few months is to be Watchful for that Karmic Baggage, and Heal our Subservience to it.  The neighborhood of New Years Day may be a Standout for this (see below).

The Solstice chart also tells us that this process is an important part of the Soul’s Descent (or the Ego’s Ascension if you prefer to see it that way), and warns us to Expect that our Values will be undergoing radical Change (Venus T-Square across an Opposition from Uranus/Soul to Haumea/Rebirth).  As an aside, it also mentions that our Success is likely to lie through Converting our Fear to Power (Finger of God to dwarf planet Sedna)Here’s the chart…

The new Cycle between asteroid Karma and dwarf planet Chiron Begins on New Years Day 2020 (1pm PST) at 2 Aries – “A comedian reveals Human nature.”  That’s a Big Hint – Laughing at ourselves will likely be a Powerful way to Lighten the Ego’s Grasp on the Obsolete Patterns that we need to Jettison. This is a five-year Cycle, so this won’t apply only to the next three months.  The Cycle we’ve just finished began on 30 April 2015 at 21 Pisces, “Under the watchful and kind eye of a Chinese servant, a girl fondles a little white lamb.”  Whoa, what a Loaded Metaphor!  Feel free to let your Imagination run Wild as you try to blend this Image with your Impressions of the last five years.

Choosing Life or Despair

October 31, 2019

Just a quick warning, till I find time to write more.

Our Karma is Lit Up Strongly between now and 2 November 2019 (10pm PDT), particularly our Habits of Giving Away our Power to whomever Asks for it.

Asteroid Karma (Karma, Inertia, ancient Habits) is Stationary (Strong) Conjunct Lilith (Self-Sovereignty) and Neptune (Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity), at the focus of a T-Square (Big Challenge).

And we’re already Feeling a Disturbance in the (Life) Force as our Vitality is Illuminated between now and 4 November (1am PST).  This Disturbance may be for many a Turning Point in the Climate Change Emergency, as we reach a dual Decision point between Fate and Choice, and between Victimhood and Taking Charge.

Dwarf planet Varuna (the Life Force, Vitality) is Stationary (Strong) as one arm of a Kite (Grace Directed toward a Cause) with the Truth of our Values (asteroid Aletheia/Truth-of-the-Heart Conjunct Venus) on the other arm.  The central axis of the Kite is also the base of a T-Square (Big Challenge) that’s Focused on Climate Change (dwarf planets Pholus/Responsiveness and Quaoar/Survival-Instincts Conjunct on the Cusp of Capricorn/Just Fix It).

The base of the T-Square and central axis of the Kite is about whether or not we’re Willing to Take our Power – the Opposition between Despair and Miracles (Chiron) on the one hand and Victimhood or Action (asteroid Moira/Fate-or-Choice Conjunct dwarf planet Makemake/Manifestation) on the other hand. 

If we let either Chironean Discouragement or the Powerless Acceptance of our Moiraic Fate rule our Actions, we Lose.  But if we Allow Miracles to overcome Despair (by Poor-Sweethearting and then Changing the Subject, for instance), and move from Fate to Choice (by becoming Conscious of our Karma, for instance) we can begin to Manifest (Makemake) what we have Chosen.

Expanding into Truth 2

September 26, 2019

As we’ve been pointing out repeatedly since July’s Truthiness post (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/07/25/truthiness/), both asteroids Aletheia (Truth of the Heart) and Veritas (Truth of the mind) are in Scorpio (Getting to the Bottom of Things, Relentlessly) and moving rapidly toward Merger (Conjunction).  So the ubiquitous news about Habitual Prevaricators getting caught standing in their own you-know-what is no Surprise.  These two Merge on 3 October 2019, about eight hours after Pluto (No Exit) Stands Still (is at Max Power).  They don’t leave Scorpio till early November.

If you haven’t been following this Thread, you’d do well to skim from Truthiness forward till now, as Truthiness has been entwined with our Karma and several other Heavy Threads – including getting Truthy about our own Karma.  Particularly notice how the hooligans are dressed in the first video of the Ixion, Forbidden Genius 3 post.

Our first 27 September astroevent (5:30 am PDT) is asteroid Nemesis (Ego Death) moving into Virgo (Ego Death).  Nemesis symbolizes Guilt and Punishment, and we Transcend that with Ego Death – we either Accept that we’re a Bad Person, or Decide that the Rules we’ve broken are Bad, that we’re being Blamed Unfairly. or that we’re being Blamed Fairly, and Intend to Reform.  Any of which Requires an Ego Adjustment, some bigger than others.

Virgo meanwhile is the rope Bridge between Leo and Libra, between the Pinnacle of Individual Development, and the First Meeting of Other, where we’re basically Infantile.  I mean, in Leo we barely knew Other existed.  We thought those disembodied clapping hands were part of our scenery.  Maybe a zip line, or a rappel with no belay, would be a better metaphor than a rope Bridge.  If we don’t go through a tonne of Ego Adjustment in Virgo as the hands stop clapping, we’ll be in big Trouble when we get to Libra.  Maybe you remember situations where you’ve Felt at the top of your game, and Believe you were meeting someone pretty much as Equals, only to very quickly Discover they were waaay ahead of you.

It’s no Help that dwarf planet Chariklo (Self-Doubt and Self-Confidence) is also Strong (Stationary), its Energy peaking a few minutes after midnight PDT on 28 September.  Or maybe it’s Helpful, if Self-Doubt leads us to Self-Examination and Change, or we Respond to getting caught in Over-Confidence by Adjusting our Attitude.

The Nemesis Sign-Change chart is like so…

Just a Big Tricolor (Mystery; the red-green-blue triangle) and a Mjölnir (Epiphany – the lighter yellow lines).  With a Tricolor we unlock the Grace in the blue line by Refusing to Let the mind Believe that it Understands the Confusion inherent in the green line.  Said another way, there’s an Easy Relationship (Trine) between the Climate Emergency (Pholus-Quaoar) and our Ego Death (Nemesis).  But the Ease is locked out of our Awareness when we Allow the Challenge (Square) that Unconscious Fear (Vesta-Sedna) makes to our Ego (Nemesis) to Dominate our Attention.  We’re referring to Pholus-Quaoar as the Climate Emergency, but it includes the Political and Economic Uncertainty that’s Afoot.

We Restore the Ease by Surrendering to our Higher Power the Relationship between our Fear (Vesta-Sedna) and the Climate Emergency (Pholus-Quaoar), by Allowing it to remain a Mystery (Quincunx).  But that doesn’t mean we defer the Opportunity to bring the Fear up into Consciousness!  For instance, I’ve been gnawing on a Problem for several months now, without coming up with a decent suggestion to Solve it.  This morning I realized that It was Fear that I was Unconsciously focusing on, while I tried to “Solve” it by Strategizing.  That’s a Dead End, obviously.  We Resolve Fear by Embracing it.

So I did just that – laid down, located the Fear in my Body, Softened and Warmed it while Poor-Sweethearting myself (“You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Scared, aren’t you”), then followed the Sensation when it Moved in my Body, and the Emotional Memories Triggered as it did.  If a Problem can’t be Resolved in a couple of months of Plotting, it’s not a Problem that will ever be Solved by Analysis, Planning, and Executing.  Declare an Intention, Command What You Want, and be Mindful to Cancel, Neutralize, Upgrade Thoughts to the Contrary.  Which I did.  Didn’t immediately Solve the Problem, but it certainly Changed my Frame of Reference, so I’m more often broadcasting What I Want to the Universe instead of What I Don’t Want.

Which leads us right to the Mjölnir (Trioctiles reaching from each end of a Square), that focuses on the Saturn-South Node that plagued us last week – namely, our Karma.  Those Emotional Memories Triggered by the Movement of Energy after I Allowed the Fear to become Conscious as a Physical Sensation in my Body and Invited it to Express itself however it Chose.

Asteroid Hopi, joining Saturn and the Dragon’s Tail, is about Respect for All Things.  A great time to go through our…

“_____, whatever I may have done or not done, or said or not said, Consciously or Unconsciously, that hurt you, I Ask your Forgiveness.  _____, whatever you may have done or not done, or said or not said, Consciously or Unconsciously, that hurt me, I forgive you.”

Be careful with this; it can easily Create Powerful Ego Deaths that you don’t notice until you Discover that you’ve Forgotten how to Drive!

A few hours later, around 8:30 am PDT 27 September, asteroid Bee-Zed (or BZ509, indicating Transendence) Stands Still.  Its chart…

…is more complicated, but the core is two T-Squares (red triangles), one to Stationary Bee-Zed itself, Expanded by Jupiter (Growth), and the other to Chariklo (Self-Doubt/Confidence), Stationary less than a day later (just after midnight PDT 28 September).  Chariklo is Lit up by Pluto (Obsession), which itself is Stationary until 2 October, and our busy friend Hopi again.  This is a hell of a lot of Power.  Make sure you’re swimming downstream.

Expanding Transcendence (Jupiter and Bee-Zed) is Challenged by (Squares) the Dance (Opposition) between Choosing to Become Aware and Trust our Instincts (Moira-Juno-Moon) and Sacred Confusion about our Identity (Neptune-Lilith).  Lilith is about Bringing our Identity back Home to our Self and our Soul, rather than Investing it in someone or something External to us, such as a spouse or a job.  Confusion is always the first stage of Growth, as the Mental Cage we normally trap the Universe in, starts to warp and lead.  Sacred Confusion (Neptune) all the more.

Compulsive Attention to Self-Doubt and Self-Confidence, in the context of our Judgments (Pluto-Chariklo-Hopi) is Challenged by the Dance between our Values (Venus) and our Endings (Atropos).  In other words this is about Letting Go of Obsolete Values that Inhibit our Self-Confidence.  The Greek Atropos was the Goddess who determined the Ending of a TimeLine – a Lifetime or a Habit or a Relationship or any other Thread in your Young Life.  Fate is what happens to us when we’re Unconscious; we replace it with Choice when we become Conscious.  Here we practice Choosing to Let Go of Values that no longer Serve us.

There is a seventh fencepost here – the budding (3 October) Conjunction between Truth of the Heart Aletheia, and Truth of the mind Veritas.  It Bridges both Oppositions – we’ll make everything a lot Easier if we steer toward Truth.

We need to remind that this is all just warmup for the 2 October (11:30 pm PDT) Station of Pluto (Compulsive Change of Trance) and 3 October (8am PDT) Aletheia-Veritas Conjunction (Truth Squared).

And that 28 September is even busier than the 27th,  starting just after midnight PDT with the Station of Chariklo (Self-Doubt/Self-Confidence) which Conjoins the Stations of Pluto and Bee-Zed, and continuing at 9am PDT with the Station of dwarf planet Chaos.  Chaos is a Big Deal; if it weren’t for all these other themes going on and Pluto waving its arms, Chaos would be the Big Topic!  Here it just means that however we React and Respond to these Lit-Up Issues of Karma, Survival, Ego Death, Confidence, Truth, Growth, Ascension (into 5D), and Descension (of Soul into Matter) the Gate to the Universe is Open.  The World is our Oyster; all we need to do is Intend it.

Then, at 11:30 am PDT 28 September, the Moon is New within one arcminute of dwarf planet Makemake (Manifestation).  The primary theme of the New Moon, other than Manifesting What We Want, is Descent of Soul into Matter, not just “our own” Soul into our own Body, but the Reanimation of the Planet, the Wild, and Everything In It, return to the Indigenous World where All Things Are Alive.

If anyone is watching the Degrees and comparing them to their natal chart – which we should all be doing – they’re these…

  • Equinox 0 Libra 23 September
  • Nemesis Ingress 0 Virgo 27 September
  • New Moon 6 Libra 28 September
  • Aletheia-Veritas Conjunction 17 Virgo 3 October
  • Bee-Zed Station 18 Sagittarius 27 September
  • Chariklo Station 20 Capricorn 28 September
  • Pluto Station 21 Capricorn 2 October
  • Asbolus Station 24 Gemini 23 September
  • Chaos Staion 27 Gemini 28 September
  • Vesta Station 28 Taurus 23 September

Held Emotions On Climate Change

September 14, 2019

It’s a week early, relative to Greta’s 20 September Worldwide Strike,

but our Held-Emotions Festival also features Stations (Energy Peaks) of the two planets most involved in Climate Change – dwarf planet Quaoar (Survival Instincts) at 2pm PDT 14 September, and dwarf planet Pholus (Being Fully Responsive) 2½ hours earlier.  The Question then becomes, for the Planet as a whole, What Held Emotions Prevent its Denizens from Being Responsive to their Survival Instincts?  Here’s a very relevant perspective…

https://mailchi.mp/johnperkins/a-warning-from-the-past?e=49aada85ac

The Pholus-Quaoar Station chart, on the Cusp of Capricorn, is a complex one…

Being only two Degrees and two hours apart, we can combine their Station charts.  As Bob says (paraphrasing) How the Devil do we Pick Out what’s Most Important in a chart like that, and how do we Integrate it?  Which is an excellent question! 

I start like this, loosely in priority order…

  • Are there any Stationary (ie, Strong) planets?

Yes, we focus most of our Attention in this blog on the Stationary planets, because a planet’s Influence is generally at maximum when it’s Standing Still.  That means the Impact often Stands Out enough to be Noticeable to enough people to make it worthwhile to try to pick some Theme out of the infinity of Themes that compose the Vibration of any particular moment, that it’s worth the trouble to write astrology that says more than If you’re “an Ophiuchus,” Friday the 13th is your Lucky Day!  So yes, Pholus and Quaoar, the Climate Change Twins.

  • Are any planets Out of Bounds – that is, beyond 23 Degrees 27 arcminutes North or South Declination (the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, or the Latitudes where the Sun turns around and goes back toward the Equator, at the Solstices).  I don’t usually keep track of this except for special events and Natal charts, but it’s important, as the Influence of “OOB” planets is more prominent than the others.  We’ll be Learning all about that next year, when the Moon enters another eleven-year Out of Bounds Cycle, like it did on 11 September 2001.

Dwarf planet Ceres (Sustainability) moves Out of Bounds on 14 September, the day of the Pholus-Quaoar Stations.  As I say, I never would have noticed this if I hadn’t looked it up specifically for this paragraph.  Ceres stays OOB until mid-February 2020, implying that Climate Change will likely be taking a front seat until then.  After that, in March, the Moon starts going Out of Bounds again, which probably means that someone will inject Mass Fear (as with “9/11”) into the Atmosphere – the Antichrist’s War perhaps, and everyone will rush back to as close to “Business As Usual” as they can Achieve, probably Enforced with new versions or equivalents of the Patriot Act, if the Antichrist’s henchfolk, or the Illuminati in their stead, can get Organized enough.

  • Are there any Strong connections to the Nodes?  These are important to our Lifetime Journey from Karma to Mission, so in my book they’re Bottom Line.

Yes, but they aren’t in the Pholus-Quaoar Degree Zone, so they’re technically not part of this chart.  However, they’re very relevant in Time, because that’s exactly what our Overarching Stationary Saturn-South Node event is, namely the emphasis on our Held Emotions over all.

  • Are there any Big Conjunctions or Stellia (groupings of three or more planets)?  Conjunctions are tricky because we lose our ability to Discern any Difference between the two players since they’re Merged as One.  So our Habits of Anal-yzing the World by breaking it into pieces are no longer as useful as they were before.  Stellia make it even more complex.  This is actually a Teaching, because it gives us the Opportunity to Grok Synthesis instead of Analysis, if we’re Open to it.

Yes again – the Climate Change Twins being the prime example.  So, double whammy.  The fact that it’s Embraced in time by Saturn-South Node, another very Strong Conjunction that repeats only every 19 years or so (the more infrequently something happens, the less experience we have with it, and the more we’re thrown off by its recurrence), means that we’re going to Experience it very personally, as the elements of Climate Change that Trigger our own unique Past Traumas, are Lit Up for each of us.  These are still Transit-to-Transit events, not Transit-to-Natal, so we’ll likely be seeing Past Mass Traumas that are unique to us.

Pholus-Quaoar is an approximately 120-year Cycle, and irregular, so we won’t have Experience with their Merger more than once in a Lifetime, if that.  Their most recent Mergers were in 1902, 1799, and 1629.  Planets, particularly outer planets, dance around quite a bit rather than keeping on the straight and narrow.  When they orbit at different speeds, one can rocket past the other in a few days.  But when they travel at about the same speed, they can lollygag around together for years.  Pholus has an irregular orbit, and in the three previous events it was traveling fast enough that it finished its crossing of Quaoar within the year.  Now it’s out in the slow zone of its orbit, so its 3-Degree Dance with Quaoar lasts from 2013 to 2065!  Climate Change is not a flash in the pan.

For the current occasion, in their September confluence, Pholus-Quaoar is joined by Ixion, further compounding our inability to Anal-yze.  It can be helpful, though.  As we look to see how we Feel about Climate Change when we stop Allowing our Denial, it may reveal Held Emotions.  And when we look at How we might Respond to Climate Change as it affects us Personally, we may get clues about our Hidden Genius.  In the Fantasies that naturally Arise for you when you contemplate Responding to your Experience of Climate Change, which Superpowers do you use?

  • Naked T-Squares (not in a Grand Cross) – one of our most Difficult astroevents to deal with.

None here.

  • Naked Squares (not in a T-Square) – not as confounding as a T-Square but still plenty Challenging.

Hmm, yes, OR10 (Intrusive Memories) Square to Sedna-Vesta (Changing our Beliefs by Converting Fear to Power).  Interesting.  Listen for those Small Still Voices that may be slipping you Insider Information about what you Fear – and whether it’s one of those Karmic Paper Tigers.  And of course Fear is usually a Big, if often Undercover, part of any Held Emotion.

  • Zodiac-Spanning Major Configurations – Grand Cross, Grand Trine, Grand Sextile, Grand Quintile, Grand Septile, Mjölnir, Grand Octile, Grand Unx, maybe even a Grand Decile or Grand Novile (don’t recall ever seeing one of those, but I don’t look for them, and they aren’t easy to spot), Yin Gate, even Fezzes or Mystic Rectangles.  They’re a Big Deal because they Integrate a chart.

Just a Grand Cross here.  Grand Crosses are Balanced, each of the four T-Squares Complimenting the Others, so we don’t usually pay them a lot of Attention because they kind of take care of themselves.  Here we have Pholus-Quaoar-Ixion Opposing dwarf planet Chaos, Square to Mercury-Venus Opposing asteroid Karma Conjunct the Moon.

Notice that we could easily have made a Big Deal out of either of those Conjunctions; we didn’t only because we focus on the more Outer, Unconscious planets because the Unconscious Controls our Lives.  In my Experience, most astrologers focus on the Inner planets because the Inner planets are all about the Ego, and that’s what most astrologers focus on because it’s what most client-people Relate to.  No Blame, just a different focus.

Karma-Moon means we’ll be Emotionally fine-tuned on whatever’s going on, so a handy tool for Noticing and Embracing Held Emotions.  Mercury-Venus is Dangerous because the usual Infinite Loop between Thought and Emotion is even more Invisible than it normally is.  That kind of Mirrors Karma-Moon, obliquely of course, which again can be either Confusing or another crowbar for us to pry Open the Unconscious.  Confusion is always the first stage of Growth anyway.

Chaos (Unlimited Potential) Opposite Ixion-Pholus-Quaoar is intriguing.  It suggests that if we apply our Genius to our Relationship with Climate Change, we can use it as a Fulcrum to Lever us into 5D.  Look at it this way – as you contemplate what Life will be like after Climate Change, How Would You Rather Live?  The first stage of Manifestation is Projecting the Energy of what you want to Create.  So, excluding the Gloating, spend time Imagining How You’ll Feel when you’re Living as you Want to.

By the way, I just finished reading James Rickards’s recent book Aftermath, and I highly recommend it.  In it he explains very thoroughly how we got “here” (on the Edge of the End of Civilization), helping us have more Clarity about Where We Are, and cutting through all of the It’s Always Been This Way and This Time It’s Different propaganda that the mind uses to divert our Attention from the Likely.  One of the things he points out is that in a major Catastrophe, Civilized Behavior lasts three days.  After that, it’s Every Person for Themselves.  Unless you’ve built Resilient Local Community beforehand.

  • Diamond Stars (T-Square and Finger of God with the same focus) or Self-Resolving Challenges.

Yes, of the four T-Squares in the Grand Cross one of them is a Diamond Star, and it’s the T-Square to Ixion-Pholus-Quaoar.  That’s an amazing Gift.  It means that, for the moment at least, the Planetary Reaction to Saturn-South Node-Pholus-Quaoar is likely to be on-Balance Positive.  Such as Greta Waking Up the Adults to some degree perhaps.  The T-Square is on the base of Mercury-Jupiter Opposite Karma-Moon, and the Finger of God is from Sedna-Vesta Sextile Varuna.  The base of the Finger of God is the Web of Grace that makes the T-Square Self-Resolving.

Mercury-Jupiter Opposite Karma-Moon will make folks who unwillingly Encounter Greta’s Protest, Clearly Imagine their worst Apocalypic Fears, ie, it will get their Attention.  Meaning they’ll start to do something about it, or that they’ll reinforce their Denial?  Some of each of course, but as their Ixion Imagines their Superpowers, the former may Prevail.  Sedna-Vesta Sextile Varuna means they’ll Feel their Fear in their Body (Varuna), and may well (Sextile) Realize that keeping these Fears Unconscious doesn’t Serve them or their Community, and start thinking about Resilience – in the process beginning to Confront their Held Emotions!

That’s what Diamond Stars do for a Living – they’re Self-Resolving Challenges, an excellent Friend to have in a pinch.  We usually focus on the Nasty parts (Unfamiliar Stations, Challenging Squares) because we want you to be Aware that it’s not Personal, and to increase the odds that you’ll Notice any Grinding that your own Habitual ThinkingFeelingMonkeyChasingTheWeasel Loops are doing, and Bring it into Consciousness.  Maybe even Cancel, Neutralize, Upgrade.  Karma isn’t Personal, it’s in the Air.  Same with Emotion.  We just Personalize them.  Personalize Nirvana instead, K?

Same with the Goodies, the Grand Sextiles and the Diamond Stars.  Enjoy them, but don’t Personalize them.  They don’t happen because You’re So Great.  You’re so Vain, I bet you think this Transit is About You, Don’t You, as Carly almost put it.  No Blame, that’s just what the Ego does for a Living.  We just want to Bring that Fact into Consciousness where we can chuckle about it as we Enjoy it, keeping our chin horizontal instead of up our nose, just as knowing the Bummer Transits can keep our chin level instead of on our breastbone.  It’s a lot easier to see where we’re going when our chin is horizontal.

  • Repetitions – themes that repeat.

Like the prominence of both Lilith and Hylonome emphasizing Self-Sovereignty in the recent Moira-Station chart in the Saturn-South Node Degree.  Here, Mercury-Venus Opposite Karma-Moon Mirrors the Held-Emotion process

  • Bridges – Trine Bridges and Quincunx Bridges that help us Span Oppositions and T-Squares more Easily.

Yes.  Mercury-Venus Opposite Karma-Moon Trine-Bridged by Eurydike (Trust), Sedna-Vesta, and Varuna; and Quincunx-Bridged by OR10 (What was that?).  Chaos Opposite Genius-Response-Survival also Trine-Bridged by OR10 (Who said that?  What does it Mean?).

Varuna Opposite Eurydike (As we contemplate Disaster, do we Trust our Vitality and Superpowers to be up to the Challenge, or do we Feel Overwhelmed?) Trine-Bridged by Mercury-Venus, Sedna-Vesta, and Karma-Moon; and Quincunx-Bridged by Genius-Response-Survival, OR10, and Chaos – lots to contemplate there, even though we’re getting down to what are usually the lowest priorities.  In Truth there are no minor Angles; they’re all part of the Multifarious Unity.  While we start with what we think will be most Noticeable, you could start anywhere – for instance, you could just read the Unxes.

  • Vacancies – Almost-Complete Grand Configurations.

Important because they point out what We have to Contribute Consciously to make a chart function better as a Whole.  Here, Mercury-Venus, Varuna, Sedna-Vesta, Karma-Moon, and Eurydike form an Almost-Grand-Sextile, leaving 1 Sagittarius as the Vacancy that would Complete it.  Nothing trivial about a Grand Sextile, even if we have to Work at it.  1 Sagittarius is “Retired army veterans gather to reawaken old memories.”

  • Other non-Zodiac-Spanning Configurations such as Quintile Yods or Septangles or the like

Don’t see any here, though they aren’t always easy to spot.  Wait, there’s a Quintile Yod to Uranus (Soul) from Mercury-Venus and Ceres.  Quintile Yods are Teachers.  We can Learn to Sustain our Connection to our Soul by untangling the knot in our Thought-Emotion noose.

  • Naked Fingers of God (not in a Diamond Star).

These can Light Up planets that at first glance don’t seem Central to the chart, but which are probably important.  Here, Varuna and OR10, as we’ve seen.

  • Tricolors – Square-Quincunx-Trine (red-green-blue) Zodiac-filling Configurations.

There are several in this chart, but we usually don’t interpret them unless there are no or few other Configurations occurring, because they’re complex to interpret (the Square-Challenge can be Resolved-Trine by staying Open to the Curiosity-Quincunx) and the likelihood of being Understood seems small.

For instance, we can be Liberated from the Naked Square that Challenges our Sedna-Vesta Fear-Based Beliefs through our OR10 Intrusive Memories (like the Sméagol-Gollum Gestalt session in the recent post Held Emotion II) by Holding Open our Curiosity-Quincunx about the Interaction between OR10 Intrusive Memories and our insidious Mercury-Venus Thought-Emotion Loops in order to Trigger the Grace-Trine between our Thought-Emotion Loops and our Sedna-Vesta Fear-Based Beliefs.  That Trine may not be Lit Up otherwise, and it’s a Trine well worth Enjoying.

See what I mean?  It’s torturous.  If you know a way to simplify it, Lemme Know!

  • Naked Oppositions – Oppositions are always In-teresting, as Bugs would say, because they Illuminate the Religiosity in our Belief that Duality is Real.  We Believe that Contradictions are elements of Reality rather than Linguistic traps.  The Second Harmonic (Opposition) is The Priestess, Enforcer of the Narrow Path of Tradition that Distinguishes Right from Wrong.

Yes, here Varuna Opposite Eurydike – see Bridges above.

  • Any other Angles by themselves, irrespective of their Configurations, especially if they’re “Naked” (not in a Configuration at all).

For instance, the Unxes (planets one Sign apart) are amazing!  They’re about Pattern-Breaking, and they should make it Easy.  If we’re talking Karma, and we can identify a theme, we can wait for planets that might be involved in the theme to form an Unx.  Tackling the Karmic Pattern at that time should produce Boons.  We could well read a chart by just Interpreting the Unxes.

Here we have Ixion-Pholus-Quaoar Unx Eurydike – we can Break Patterns of Disrespecting our Superpowers as Fantasy.

Eurydike Unx OR10 – do we Trust those Intrusive Memories to be Clues about what we’re working on (here, Held Emotions), or are they just Irritating Disruptions.  OR10 Unx Karma-Moon – same deal, more Intense.

Varuna Unx Chaos – Do we Believe we can Heal Instantaneously?  I actually used Leave Now and Never Come Back to eliminate a troublesome physical irritation after writing the recent post Held Emotions II.

Chaos Unx Sedna-Vesta – Revealing our Fear-Based Beliefs that What We Want is Impossible or Unreachable.

  • As for automating the process, you’d have to do it with a Neural Net, where you enter each astrological element and each Interpretation, along with all the then-current news stream, and let the Net train itself, as has been done for Facial Recognition and Driverless Cars.  I don’t know how that would turn out.  Facial Recognition Neural Nets for instance think all Black people look alike, and Driverless Cars don’t recognize walking bicycles, standing fire engines, or perpendicular 18-wheelers in the road in front of them.  You could do it with Anal-ytical rules, but you’d lose all of the Interaction between elements.

As I mentioned before, for what it’s worth, in George Gilder’s new book Life After Google, he claims that it’s been Mathematically Proven that AI can’t replicate Intuitive Huper thought.  For what it’s worth.

Ixion, Forbidden Genius 2

September 8, 2019

Here’s one of our Ixion poster children…

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/boris-johnson-is-busting-every-british-political-norm-will-it-work/2019/09/07/f0b47878-d021-11e9-a620-0a91656d7db6_story.html

The Dance between Pholus (Responding to…) and Quaoar (our Survival Instincts) on the cusp of Capricorn is the obvious indicator of Global Warming.  Ixion (Violating Cultural Norms to Respond) isn’t far behind…

Ixion and Quaoar move at almost the same speed, Ixion averaging about 1.44 Degrees per year, Quaoar about 1.25.  Pholus is much faster, averaging about 4.25 Degrees per year.  Pholus is in the process of Passing Quaoar, which is why we’re starting to Pay Attention.  Ixion won’t catch up with Quaoar until 2037.  Quaoar was the God who taught the Easter Islanders how to Survive after they had cut down all of their Trees.  Stuck as we are in the Patriarchy worshiping the Great Gods Profit, Greed, and Competition, we will probably have to wait until our current Ecosystem Fails Utterly before we wake up and start Begging Quaoar to Save us.  Yes, the Patriarchy is fading, but on a scale of Centuries, not Years.

The current Pholus-Ixion Cycle began January 2012, “Pelicans moving to avoid hupers” (19 Sagittarius).  The Pholus-Quaoar Cycle will restart February 2022, “Domesticated Birds singing joyously” (8 Capricorn).  The 2037 Initiation of Ixion by Quaoar is symbolized by a “Large Aviary” (28 Capricorn).  All Birds, moving from the Wild to the Zoo.  Birds are what remain from that other Great Extinction, the Dinosaurs.

“For modern people needing to grieve but having no culture in which to really do it, this older community of the wide beautiful fish-filled ocean is the water of all grief and will be as close to a tribe that listens as they’re probably going to get.  The great mother ocean will also begin to teach the griever to move away from thinking only humans have a consciousness.

“For people raised inside the stringent rigors of so-called rational thinking or the domination of a nonemotional society which not only doesn’t grieve but pays no heed to the greatness of praising, this prospect of grieving could be fear-filled.  After all, such people still have instincts, albeit trained instincts.  These instincts tell them to be reticent about anything that smells like grief because deep down below all that control, they know, when grief comes knocking at your door, it dresses and looks like someone your parents told you not to associate with: something wild and off the grid.

“They must know if grief is followed to its naturally designed direction, in order to get to where you eventually create beauty, you will, in the interim times it might take to go there, not be a hundred percent who everybody you know normally things you are.  If you actually begin to grieve, your normal personality will most likely submit a complaint to the ‘Bureau of Proper Restraint and Complacent Mediocrity’ set up in your mind by your mother when you were twelve, because your normality is no longer necessary when you love, grieve, and praise.

“It is true that grief is an interruption into normal life like the necessary swelling and opening of a seed for it to sprout and grow to full flower.  Whether we know it or not, human beings are relegated to the fact that without grief we can never grow ourselves into real people.  It is also true that real grief, fresh grief, is a form of drunkenness, an intoxication.  When grief does what it is meant to, it turns sorrow into an ecstatic, out-of-time inebriated symphony of the very direction of the divine who conducts all the natural symphonies of life’s symbiotic communities.”

“The business mind has to be sent out for doughnuts while the generous visionary heart kicks in.  It is a time of natural molting, where the armor of rational thought is pulled away long enough to give us the necessary space of time, in which we are open and unhardened enough to let our new vulnerable state and its soft new skin surrender to grief’s able handling of the rudder of our little ship of sorrow and loss.”

–Martín Prechtel, The Smell of Dust on Rain, pp.48-49.

All Losses must be Grieved, and Global Warming will result in huge Losses.  Will we continue to be Frozen by our Denial, or will we wake up to our Grief?   Let’s see what Brenda Hoffman has to say about this…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2019/08/19/do-you-believe-youre-3d-or-5d/

“You no longer have the ability to pander to the needs of others.  This is something you have discovered over many months of trying to do so without the results you hoped for.  For those people you attempt to help may not do as you command or demand, and yet, they continue to ask for help.  Which results in your exhaustion and little or no change in their lives.  So it is you dropped into the 3D caretaking zone.

“You were once able to brush off such interactions for you were fully enmeshed in your 3D “helper” mode.  Now that you are no longer of 3D, such interactions merely exhaust you.  You are attempting to be in two worlds at the same time, and such is no longer possible.  Your caretaking role has become painful.

“But of course, those yet of 3D cannot understand your reluctance to tell them what to do or to listen to the same story for the 100th time with little evidence they want to change.

“So it is you are discovering your new path, sometimes inch by inch.  For listening to the woes of others used to be delightful.

“You continue to contend that you have not changed, that you are who you always were.  We beg to differ.

“Your direction, your joys, even your food preferences are changing daily.  But until you note something evident to all concerned, you will continue to believe you are just as you always have been.

“What difference does it make if you believe you are of 3D or 5D?  Your thoughts and beliefs create your reality.  So if you believe something is not possible, it is not.  But, if you believe you are different with new directions, powers, and needs, so it will be.

“It is time for you to claim your inner-power, which merely means shifting your beliefs from ‘I can’t’ to ‘I easily can.’  A simple form of self-hypnosis if you will, but such a dramatic belief change that your life will never again be as it was.

“For most of you are trying to dance between 3D fear and 5D belief in yourself.  The two are not at all similar or even possible at the same time.  You need to acknowledge you are no longer of 3D no matter how frequently someone tries to pull you back into what was for you but is no longer.

“Most often, when 3D humans attempt to claw their way out of their pain through treatment, a move, or ending a relationship, those yet of 3D want that person to return to what was.  For if their friend or relative changes, so must their expectations or actions.

“ThreeD is not a change format.  For even though change is the dominant growth pattern in all dimensions, 3D does not encourage such if someone else must change also.  Sameness is honored. Change is not.

“So it is you remain deeply enmeshed in hoping for the sameness of your 3D earth lives.  FiveD and beyond is filled with change.  In truth, change is the keyword in all dimensions beyond 3D.  So as you change, those within your circle will likely attempt to stop you from doing so.

“By the same token, those you love, who are also changing, might frighten you.  For even though you are expecting some personal changes, you are not expecting changes in others.

“You are in a quandary.  You feel and act differently.  But as you do so, you want those around you to remain as they were.  For you do not have the energy to watch them change and grow – and do the same yourself.  You are exhausted both by your changes and those of others dear to you.

“And as you attempt to return to some ‘normalcy’ by coaching those deeply entrenched in 3D who do not wish to change, you become even more exhausted.

“You do not necessarily know who you are now, and you most certainly do not have the social skills you were once proud of as either an introvert or extrovert.  So everyone and everything feels awkward, uncomfortable, or wrong despite your best attempts to fit in.

“You are not who you used to be, and you are rapidly discovering that those following you are not either.  The only humans acting as they always have are those of 3D, and even they are shifting from slightly irritating to completely uncomfortable for you.  What is happening to you and your world?

“You are shifting, and so are millions of others.  No one and nothing is as it was.  Everything to be, and you are new within you.  And you are discovering that the same is true for your outer world.  What was is no more.  What will be is just forming.  You feel as if you are in ‘No person’s land.’

“This pain, this uncertainly will force you to create that which you did not know was possible in 3D.  And so it is that your inner-power will come to the forefront even if such a thought is uncomfortable now.  Within days, you will start forming ideas that are not like anything you have thought of or believed in before.  For you are shifting from the fear of change to the knowingness of your next phase – that of using your inner-directed power.

“Such is so because all that created your 3D life is no longer valid.  It is time to create from the new.  Something that has seemed too frightening to contemplate.  That is until that which is known is too uncomfortable to live in or with.  So be it.  Amen.”
