The “Green” Energy in the Calendar (Saturn-Chiron-Chaos-Nemesis) peaks 26-29 December, but most folks will be Feeling it already, in spite of the “Purple” Energy in between (Sun-Pholus-Galactic Center, 15-21 December).  We’ve talked some about each of these in previous posts.  We haven’t talked about the “Blue” Energy yet, which peaks rather precisely at New Years Eve, but I’ve been Feeling it strongly over the last several days.  The “Blue” Energy is about Scarcity and Abundance.  Find the Calendar I’m referring to at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/12/18/communique-from-hq-2/ .  We’ll work here on trying to understand the “Green” Energy more.

Saturn-Chiron

Chiron is an emissary with an irregular orbit.  In the fifty years it takes to make one loop, it starts out just beyond the orbit of Uranus, where it picks up Instructions from the Soul.  It then moves in to the environs of Saturn’s orbit, where it delivers the Instructions to the Ego, and receives Information to take back to the Soul.  

In a Free-Will Universe, Soul and Ego are equal partners, not master and servant.  If Ego served Soul, Life on our Planet would be quite Different.  Ego is the mortal 3D Experiencer for the Higher-Dimension immortal Soul (see the first link in the Resonations post below).  Chiron’s Dance between Despair and Miracles is the Dance between Ego and Soul.

Saturn makes a Waning Square to Chiron, beginning the wind-down of a Cycle that began in April 1966 at 24 Pisces, People living closely together on a small Island in the middle of the Sea.  That Image speaks loudly of Global Warming.  The next Cycle begins in 2028.  The suggestion is that for many the Island Lifestyle may not survive more than another eleven years or so.  

Isolation is another element of the Image, and the corresponding suggestion would be that Monoculturalism is on its last stilts.  Since a Waning Square is a Crisis of Letting Go, politics in the US are certainly Mirroring Crises of Environmental Care and Monoculturalism.  If we picture Europe as a “small island,” we see some of the same issues coming to Crisis, here issues of multiple Cultures trying to Coexist in close proximity.

This 1966 Saturn-Chiron Cycle was an integral part of the Ouija Board Pluto-Uranus Initiation, as Saturn and Chiron then Opposed Uranus and Pluto.  Our 2012-2016 Yintegrity issues were of course signaled by the Waxing Square of Uranus to Pluto – the Waxing Square is when a Cycle’s Energy emerges from hiding and becomes a permanent part of the Zeitgeist.  In the “Green” calendar you’ll notice that our suite of astroevents begins with Jupiter Opposing Uranus – later we’ll see what an amazing role Jupiter played in the Pluto-Uranus Initiation. 

Chiron-Chaos

Dwarf planet Chaos recall does not symbolize Disorder, but Unlimited Potential.  “Chaos” was the condition that preceded the Greek Patriarchy’s reorg of the Perceived Universe – ie, of Mother Nature and the Matriarchy.  So yes, from the Perspective of Testosterone, less than Absolute Power is hard to fathom, Chaotic.  Chaos also represents the not-really-empty “Vacuum” of Space, or the Zero Point Field.  Hence we use “Unlimited Potential” as our key synonym.

The Chiron-Chaos Cycle is about the Dance with Limitation.  Chiron requires new Perspective to Liberate us from our Dead Ends, and Limitation is an obvious spanner in that works.  The Cycle that’s now beginning to wind down began in April 1976 at 28 Aries, A large audience confronts a disappointing performer.  We know it wasn’t John and Olivia, but I can think of several other candidates from that era.

In the current political situation in most of the World, large audiences confronting disappointing political performers are pretty common, as are large audiences setting up straw heroes for potentially spectacular disappointments in the near future.  This is the Waning Square, so this mob rule notion is thankfully winding down.  

We also see large segments of Society loudly demonstrating their disappointment in the performance of Science, equal numbers demonstrating their disappointment in the performance of Religions, and 99% of us demonstrating our disappointment in current models of Political Economy.  All of these tools for Structuring Reality beg for Transcendence of their Obvious Limits.  

The next Cycle doesn’t begin until 2041.  That leaves a lot of doors unlocked.

Saturn-Chaos

The current Saturn-Chaos Cycle began in April 2001 at 29 Taurus, “Two cobblers working at a table.”  There’s Grounding there, and sabots should we run out of spanners; “Work” – as opposed to Play; and Duality, which Rudhyar emphasizes.  Curious that it’s a Table rather than a Workbench.  While our favorite picture of Saturn is as The Most Important Thing, it also represents Structure, Order, Discipline, the Patriarchy, and the Ego.

So the Saturn-Chaos Cycle represents the Yang-oriented Ego’s Constant Struggle against the Unknown, Unpredictable, and usually Sudden Life-Changing events that Nature is so Skilled at providing to disrupt excessive Organization.  At least, excessive Organization is what we assume when we view our Reality as “It Is As It Is.”  From the Ego’s Perspective of course, the Disruption is simply Evil Intent.

The other two Cycles are Waning; this one is Blooming (Opposition), and when you consider how many other Socially Critical Cycles are Waning into the Void – Jupiter-Saturn, Jupiter-Pluto, Saturn-Pluto, Saturn-Neptune. and now Saturn-Chiron, it’s little Wonder that the Ego’s Constant Struggle against Loss of Control is Lit Up Strongly.

But it means we have until 2026 to enjoy the Fruits of Organized Potential, before this Cycle begins to Wane.  And we have the Phitile coming up in early 2021, which should provide an early Future-Stretching bonus from the beginnings of the Digital Age.  The Phitile represents the Fruiting of a Cycle; the 223-Degree Golden Angle from Sacred Geometry, 360 divided by Phi.

  Φ    Φ    Φ    Φ    Φ  

Interesting that all three of these major Cycles began in an April, symbolizing Fresh Beginnings in NorthernHemispherism, and Harvest on the Yin side of the Sphere.  Of course, when we’re dealing with the Non-Dual Unconscious, which is the major object of our musings, it’s the Coin that counts, not the Sides.  And of course, most of all, the Edges.

Saturn-Chiron-Chaos

So to kernelize these three Cycles and our position in them, we have Wanings in Safe Monoculturalism (Saturn-Chiron) and in Social Organization (Chiron-Chaos), and a Blooming in the Ego’s Ability to mold Matter into useful shapes (Saturn-Chaos).  If we look at a Chiron T-Square across a Saturn-Chaos Opposition as a static Configuration rather than a Convergence of Trends, we’re Challenged to Master Opening ourself to New Perspectives that dissolve the apparent Struggle between Order and Anarchy.  The Vacancy provides Gems on a Royal Coat of Arms.  

How do we merge these Perceptions?  Once, as a friend was dying, an expatriate from German Pomerania, he told me “Hitler wasn’t so bad,” as if it was something he had to “get off his chest.”  And judging from his stories about life in Germany before and after WWII, it was easy to understand that Perspective, how the Struggle between Order and Anarchy was resolved – as long as you weren’t one of the Scapegoats or under the bombs.  We certainly see heavy use of Scapegoating Worldwide today, in the attempt to restore irretrievably lost Monoculturalism.

Perhaps the Gift of the 2021 Phitile will be a small Fish we can put in our Ear, that allows us to understand what anyone else is saying, from their own Perspective, not from translations that inevitably ignore the subtle and not-so-subtle Differences that characterize different Cultures.  Between now and 2021, however, we may need to endure a Planet where edible Fish are extinct and mutual antagonism is a lot more common than mutual understanding.

If we look to make Lemonade from these Lemons, we may need to steal the underlying maxim of Predatory Capitalism: “Where there is Crisis there is Opportunity.”  The Predators think of it as Opportunity to gather OPM – Other People’s Money.  We can think of it as Opportunity to Create Peace, Unity of Purpose, and Collaboration.

The Focus of the T-Square after all is Chiron, Despair and Miracles, and we know the route from the one to the other – through Empathy.  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re really Feeling ______, aren’t you.”  Fill in the blank, Change the Subject, and after a day or so Pay Attention to see what Changed and how it might be related to the Limitation that you didn’t Believe could be Transcended.

December 19, 2016

We’re well into the Province (in Time) of the “Green” Energy from our earlier calendar – the core is the Saturn-Chiron-Chaos (The Most Important Thing is Letting Go of Limiting Beliefs, or Limits Revert!) T-Square (Challenge to Mastery).  There are a number of Grace-Full Configurations accompanying it, which we’ll get to later.  Their Essential Elements include Trust, Acceptance that It Is as It Is, and Honoring our Unique Genius.

As frequent readers know, Sensitivity is Important – an astroevent where the two or more planets are 10 arcminutes apart (ie one sixth of a Degree) is likely to be Experienced as more Intense than one where the Separation is 45 arcminutes.  Here’s how our Saturn-Chiron-Chaos components stack up at 2pm PST on 28 December…

  • Saturn 21:01 Sagittarius
  • Chiron 21:01 Pisces
  • Chaos 21:03 Gemini
  • Nemesis 21:24 Sagittarius

Twenty-four hours earlier it was…

  • Saturn 20:53
  • Nemesis 20:59
  • Chiron 20:59
  • Chaos 21:04  

You’d be hard-pressed to get a slip of paper between them.  For comparison, the Full Moon is about 30 arcminutes wide, or half a Degree.  Two planets of course occupy the same Exact Degree whenever they cross, but it’s rare for a third planet to be this close when the first two are Exact, let alone a fourth.

A T-Square is Challenging, among other reasons, because it is Unbalanced.  We “Complete” a T-Square astrologically by adding a fourth planet at the “Vacancy” to complete a Grand Cross; here that would be 21:02 Virgo.  We Complete it Energetically by Contributing our own Energy into the Vacancy.  Virgo 22 is about “A royal coat of arms enriched with precious stones.”  In other words, to make the T-Square more manageable, we need to Stand Tall and Proudly call upon the Power of the Earth to stand with us as we Command our Limiting Trances to Revert!  A Belief is a Trance, a Spell, a Curse.  Get out your Garlic.

13.12 Full Moon V

December 12, 2016

This Full Moon brings us a chart so complex that our assignment amounts to Interpreting what’s The Most Important Thing.  And I believe that amounts to

Becoming Conscious about How Instinct, Intuition, and Timing Work Together to Create Our Reality – and Learning to Do It Effortlessly

Several hours before the Full Moon, the Moon (Instinct) crosses the Centaur Asbolus (Intuition), which is at the head of the Septile Kite we’ve discussed, Septile to Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) and to Uranus-Eris-et al (The Heart’s Truth, which is Different for each of us), and Triseptile to Chariklo (Walking in Beauty).

Moon-Asbolus also Oppose Juno (the Edges of Consciousness), T-Squared (Challenged) by asteroid Karma (Letting Go of Archetypes that have Captured Us).  The Vacancy is 14 Pisces – Stolen Fox Fur.  This is about Dropping our Masks or Disguises.  Having to Perform to maintain an Artifice means we can’t Act Weird, and in order to follow our Instincts and Intuitions and Act At The Right Time, we’re going to have to Act Weird sometimes.  While having a Mask of Acting Weird may be useful at times, the Mask will still get in our way when Following Our Truth requires us to Act Conventionally.

While this isn’t Exact until 28 December (when it’s incredibly Exact, within a few arcminutes!), a Chiron (Healing Despair) T-Square is forming with Saturn (The Most Important Thing) and dwarf planet Chaos (Limitlessness), just as asteroid Nemesis (Ego Death) crosses Saturn.  They’re currently within a little more than two Degrees of Sensitivity, and will reach one Degree by the Solstice.  The Vacancy is 22 Virgo, A girls’ basketball team – can’t think of a better symbol for Intuition, Instinct, and Timing!

Both Squares are Waning – we’re “descending” into Uncertainty around the meaning of these Cycles.  The Nemesis-Saturn Cycle is about the useful life and expiry date of an Ego Configuration.  The Saturn-Chiron Cycle is about the Intimacy of our Soul Connection.  The Chiron-Chaos Cycle is about the Edges of our Beliefs in the Nature of the Universe and our Place in It.  This sort of Configuration is likely to occur maybe once every 8,000 years or more.  So it’s worthy of our undivided Attention.  Whatever Material Structures we’re using to prop up our Ego (that is, what makes us Feel Safe and Unthreatened?), the sooner we can loosen our grip, the Easier it will be on us.

While a Chiron T-Square with Saturn-Nemesis and Chaos by itself is a Big Deal, this one is extraordinarily tight, making it even more unusual.  It’s complemented here by a Grand Sextile: Jupiter (Expansion), Eurydike (Trust), Uranus-Eris et al (Yintegrity), and Moira (Fate) joining Saturn-Nemesis and Chaos.  It’s also joined by another Septile Kite, this one topped by Pallas (Boundaries), Triseptile to Vesta (Limiting Beliefs), and Septile to Uranus-et-amicis and Mercury (the intellect).

“How wonderful it is to witness the timing of truth.  You now realize that you have nothing to defend, for truth needs no defense.  You will find that vulnerability also contains its own blessings, for you are not born and you cannot die.  Always be naked to Self, for at that level of Self-acceptance you will find clarity and insight.”  –Michael Roads, Journey into Oneness: Into a Timeless Realm, p.115

Some other Light Reading follows.  I’m including the short passages just so you can see what the blog posts are about; I recommend reading the whole post if you can spare the time.  As you read these, remember Both/And…

You have taken yourselves to a point in your evolution where nothing else matters.  Nothing in the world, or of the world, is as significant as your evolution, your expansion, your ascension.  This is important for you to recognize so that you don’t get lost in the circumstances of your reality.”  — https://newsununity.com/2016/12/12/the-arcturians-all-about-ascension/ 

In keeping with that new (or remembered) inner awareness, I now choose to maintain a purely neutral stance and seek to continuously radiate unconditional love and the golden light of Christ Consciousness out into the world.  By doing so, I can assist in raising up the general frequency level, thus allowing more of what has been hidden to be revealed so it can be transmuted and released.  By radiating out from my heart center the Violet Flame, I am using compassion as a tool for the transformation of our world.”  — https://bluedragonjournal.com/2016/12/12/eliza-on-the-sacredness-of-life/ 

Then around 7 years old, we go to school.  Now we have left our home and face an entirely different group of people.  And guess what?  They are all our age.  Therefore, we should have a lot in common with them—right?  But what if we are ‘different’?  What if we can talk to beings that most people never even see?  Before, we just thought we were different from our parents, but then we learn that we are different from most of the people that are our own age.  This is why the Arcturians usually bring up the ages of around 3 and around 7, as these are the ages in which our ‘individuation’ really begins.”  — http://suzanneliephd.blogspot.com/2016/12/the-beginning-through-suzanne-lie.html 

“Many will come to understand that one must completely free the self of the old in order to experience the new.  For in the new reality of the New Earth, there is no room for hatred and division.  We must release or BE released WITH the old.  It is all a matter of choice.  We say to you there is no turning back, let go of all fearful concepts, hold your light as we move forward.  You are in for some great surprises, one after another.  Wave after wave we are reaching the shore, sooner than many may think.”  — https://newsununity.com/2016/12/12/the-event-splitting-of-worlds/ 

Chiron Station

June 20, 2014

I hope yesterday’s Chiron Station has been easier on you than it has on me.  Time for some exploration…

No big heavy entanglements with other planets while it’s in its Shadow Period.

The Shadow Period is the span of the Zodiac, and span of time, for a complete Retrograde cycle.  When seen from here, the planet seems to stop (Stationary Retrograde or SR) and then go backwards for a while (Retrograde or R), then stop again (Stationary Direct or SD) and start going forward again.  This means that the space between the two Stations gets crossed by the planet three times – forward, backward, forward again.

On the Zodiac the Shadow Period is the space between the SD and the SR.  On the calendar the Shadow Period includes all three crossings of the Zodiacal Shadow Period.  So it starts when the planet first passes the place where it will later turn SD, and ends when the planet again passes the place where it turned SR.

Often a Shadow Period will include multiple crossings of other planets.  Basically, those constitute things we really need to Pay Attention to, as the Universe is shining a bright light upon them.  Between their respective Shadow Periods, for instance, Uranus Squares Pluto seven times between 2012 and 2015.

Pallas is dancing with Chiron, but that started in mid-December, so the two are not weaving a tapestry together.  During the Chiron Shadow Period we only have to deal with a mid-July Confidence-Builder version of a Pallas-Chiron Opposition (Despair over Boundaries or Miracles in our Boundary-setting habits).

Here’s the calendar…

  • 2/27/14: Chiron enters Shadow Period at 14 Pisces
  • 6/19/14: Chiron Stationary Retrograde at 18 Pisces
  • 7/10/14: Pallas Opposes Chiron from 18 Virgo
  • 11/23/14: Chiron Stationary Direct at 14 Pisces
  • 3/15/15: Chiron leaves Shadow Period at 18 Pisces

So we’re basically getting an intensive lesson in 14-18 Pisces, as it relates to getting discouraged or Manifesting Miracles.  Chiron doesn’t have to be big Miracles – just getting out of discouragement is a fine small Miracle, for instance.

14-18 Pisces comprises the Leo and Virgo Duads of Pisces.

By the time Chiron gets to this section of Pisces, it’s already worked through everything it plans to Complete during this Purge.  The rest of the Purge will be about making amends or educating others, Consciously and Unconsciously, about how those manipulations don’t work any more, how you’ve changed, how you’re claiming your Power now, that sort of thing.  2014 is about putting the finishing touches on your Clearing.  2015-17 is about practicing your New You in public.

Remember, Chiron is about Despair and Miracles, including the worst kind of Despair, Unconscious Despair – meaning you’d never dream of anything like that because you’ve been convinced that it’s just not Possible.  Anything is Possible.  So any signs you see of Discouragement this year, celebrate them!  They mean that you’re in the last lap of clearing away that Karma.  When you’re feeling Discouraged, start imagining what your Life would be like if you were suddenly – and Miraculously – lifted beyond this place where your Deepest Desires are verboten or outside of the realm of the Possible.  Let your Imagination get carried away.

Chiron moves through Pisces only every fifty years.  We only get one or two Purges like this per Lifetime on this Planet.  The last time Chiron was in Pisces was 1960-67; the next time will be 2060-2067.  The current iteration spans 2010-17.  Remember how much you changed during the 1960s?  If you’re younger than that, you’ve never experienced this sort of Purge – ask your parents or grandparents how the 60’s were for them, and if they think they changed much, or watched the World change much, between Elvis and Disco.

Chiron’s orbit runs back and forth from Saturn to Uranus and back, ferrying messages from your Soul to your Ego and from Ego to Soul.  Yes, your Soul is primary, it was here long before your Ego and will persist long after.  But your Ego is the locus of your Adaptation to Material Form, which is an important experiment in the herstory of your Soul, so the feedback from your Ego to your Soul is important too. 

At the moment Chiron’s outbound, reaching the neighborhood of Uranus in 2022.  It dwelled in the environs of Saturn in the last half of the 1990s, where it had an extended conversation with Saturn.  As the two circled the Sun at about the same distance, their orbital periods synchronized and their Shadow Periods overlapped, as they chased each other around the Zodiac.  On the way inbound, from 1985 till 1995, Chiron Opposed Saturn a remarkable twenty times!  Then again on Chiron’s the way out, from 2003-2006, they Opposed one another another seven times.  What a long deep teaching about the Ouija Board that was!

If you missed much of that in this Lifetime, no worries.  Just PIAVA that you remember what you Learned when you were here in another Body during those years.  If you weren’t on this Planet, borrow the memories of someone that was here then.  We swap Identities all the time, it’s no big deal.
