Capricorn I

March 25, 2018

If we hold the March for Our Lives in one hand, and the Antichrist-Bolton-Pompeo crowd in the other, it’s no contest.  The Future wins, no matter how much damage these Three Stodges and their brown-tongued flunkies can inflict upon the Planet in the interim.  While the Zodiac begins with Aries, most of the Ancients began their year by Praying for Return of the Light, which occurs, when our Prayers are Effective, on the Cusp of Capricorn.

Cusps in astrology are tricky.  Essence switches to its Opposite at Sign changes – Unpredictability to Stability to Change, for instance (Aries-Taurus-Gemini…).  And both Element (Earth, Air, Water, Fire) and Quality (Creative, Stabilizing, Mutating) Change in a consistent but illogical way.  In the Roman Empire, for instance, Winter Solstice was celebrated with Saturnalia, when all of the social rules were turned on their heads.  Quite the opposite of the Saturn we know and love – turned on its head again.

So for instance when we move from Sagittarius to Capricorn, which only takes an instant, we move from Actively Letting Go through Spiritual Fire, to Building with Pragmatic Material Creativity.  A Dizzying Change.  If you were designing a sequence of stages, is this a Transition you would include?  The implication of the Capricorn Cusp is that when you run your Calendar forwards, Spiritual Cleansing is a prerequisite for Manifestation.

We turn our Calendars backwards all the time, whenever we Regress, as we’ve been doing a lot lately – that’s why March has been so Difficult, because we’ve lost many of our Adult Skills as we’ve Regressed to earlier ages without Recognizing it and Adapting to it.  When we run the Calendar backward, Building a Practical Material Nest is a prerequisite for Spiritual Cleansing.

Mars made the Quantum Sagittarius-to-Capricorn Leap a few hours after the 17 March New Moon.  Did you notice that you suddenly went from running around with your blowtorch canceling the Unnecessary, to donning your carpenter’s apron and starting to Build a new Reality from Scratch?

In Dorothy Bryant’s incredible Kin-of-Ata depiction of Winter, the Essence of Capricorn is what we usually call “Buddhist Heaven” – in Buddhist Heaven we’re all seated around a table piled high with a sumptuous feast, but our Elbows are locked.  We can’t reach our mouths with our hands.  We could Pig out directly with our snouts, but the more elegant solution is to Feed One Another.

The Exposure of Facebook as just another Ripoff disguised as a Gift to you is a good example of the Capricorn Cusp – now can we Build something useful to the Planet and its inhabitants, instead of just another 0.0001% scam?  Google won’t be far behind, followed by the GOP.  A ton of Energies are on the Cusp from Sagittarius to Capricorn, including…

  • Focus and Concentration (Saturn) Transitioned near the end of 2017
  • Responsibility (Pholus) made the leap on 20 January
  • Survival (Quaoar) jumped over in early December
  • Energy and Action (Mars) took the plunge a week ago
  • Unconscious Beliefs (asteroid Vesta) will do the deed next week
  • Forbidden Genius won’t get there till February 2020, but it’s knocking on the door already
  • Beginnings (Klotho), Self-Confidence (Chariklo), and Shedding Codependence (Hylonome) are already there
  • Ego Death (Nemesis) crossed the Capricorn Cusp in January 2017, and Self-Love (Sappho) crossed this threshold in November 2017

This is a lot of Power Getting Clear and Coming into the Light, and the three Heaviest of the bunch will Stand Still together next week…

  • Forbidden Genius/Ixion on 27 March (2pm PDT) at 28 Sagittarius
  • Responsibility/Pholus on 29 March (9pm PDT) at 2 Capricorn
  • Survival/Quaoar on 1 April (3pm PDT) at 3 Capricorn

In the middle of this giant Shift comes a Full Moon, on 31 March (5:30 am PDT).  It’s at 11 Degrees of Aries-Libra, so it doesn’t make a Big Angle to the Capricorn Cusp, but it makes a T-Square (Challenge to Mastery) to three Energies that are already in Capricorn: Action (Mars), Focus (Saturn), and Letting Go of Codependence (Hylonome).  Moons often Create the Trigger for more Profound Energy Shifts.

Before we look at those charts, let’s look at what’s probably the most consequential of Capricorn Cusp events of recent Herstory – the Harmonic Convergence.  The most common astroevent to flag the Harmonic Convergence is the Initiation of Saturn by Uranus on 12 February 1988 at 30 Sagittarius.  That’s the birth of the first predecessor to this blog. 

Sagittarius 30 means “The Pope blessing the faithful.”  It was fine in 1988 to look to Outside Authority for Guidance, as many Outside Authorities have been-there-done-that and may offer useful suggestions.  But as we get closer to 5D the only valid Authority is your own Soul.  Expansion (Jupiter), Respect for Diversity (asteroid Hopi), and Investigating Self-Sabotaging Patterns (asteroid Karma) have yet to finish crossing Sagittarius, so they can help us Burn Off any remaining Obeisance that we haven’t Banished yet.

Most of our Codependence was Cleansed by Fire during the passage of Self-Confidence (Chariklo) and Codependence itself (Hylonome) through Sagittarius, the former 2011-2015, and the latter 2007-2015.  If you think about the Major Changes you went through during those years, you can probably find clues about any Authorititis you still need to Heal.  As Conservatives Live and Die by Authority, your Conservative friends may never get to Self-Sovereignty, so don’t waste your Energy trying to convert them, until they come to you asking for help.

Saturn-Uranus is a 44-year Cycle, and we’re now at the 252° point, which is the Waning Tridecile.  That’s a little over half a Sign and three years shy of the Waning Square.  At the Waning Square of any Cycle, the Task at Hand is to Let Go any Attachment we have to the Cycle, as we’re about to Descend into the Void around that Energy.  So we only have about three more years to Cleanse our Self-Sovereignty.

At the Waning Tridecile, we’re Called to Let Go of any Material Advantage that we’ve gained during the Cycle, or since 1988.  Given our position in the “Business Cycle” and the other trends afoot, converting our Material Advantage to Physical Possession of Divisible Hard Assets may be a good direction to move towards.  Hard because you don’t want others to be able to easily claim them, and Divisible because at the very least the taxman and the greengrocer will want some of it.  If you aren’t already growing some of your own Food, it’s past time to start.

When the current historically unprecedented and monstrous Debt Bubble pops (2018?  2019?  2020?), it will make the “Great” Depression look like child’s play.  They’ve already renamed the first “Great” Depression so they could apply the name to the second one, since the first one wasn’t nearly so debilitating as the 1930s.  The older one is now the “Long” Depression, 1873-1896.  

Your “Deposits” with financial institutions are legally Loans to them by you.  Just as you can default on your Loans, so can they.  It’s perfectly legal for them to just confiscate what you mistakenly believe is “your” money that you entrusted to their care.  If you’re lucky they may give you worthless stock in exchange, but only if they’re in a generous mood.  More likely, that will go only to the folks with very expensive lawyers.

It’s late in the Cycle to be studying the Harmonic Convergence chart, but may be worthwhile anyway…

We can call that a “Sailboat” Configuration… 

  • The Bow is Truth (asteroid Alethia) – that’s the general Objective of the Cycle.  It’s on the Cusp of Aries, which is about Beginning a New Journey.
  • Self-Sovereignty (the Uranus-Saturn Initiation itself) is the Rudder; we adjust our course by Letting Go of our Codependence.  It’s on the Cusp of Capricorn; folks in the know were moving from Spiritual Cleansing to Material Construction.  This was S&L Failure days.  It helped a lot if you were already in the 1%.
  • Memories (Mnemosyne) form the Keel; we keep the ship upright by Paying Attention to Recognizing and Embracing our Held Emotions.  This is on the Cusp of Pisces – the Essence of this Cycle is Emotional, as we would expect of any Cycle about Letting Go of Codependence.
  • The crow’s nest, which enables our navigation, is a Stellium (group of three or more planets) composed of Letting Go of Codependence (Hylonome), Endings (asteroid Atropos), and Manifestation (Makemake).  Stellia are complex because they take three or more Energies that we’re accustomed to, and combine them into New Energies that we’re unlikely to Recognize.  So Navigation hasn’t been particularly straightforward since 1988. 

We could interpret the Stellium as Enabling our Creativity by Ending our Reliance on External Authority.  That should allow an increasingly Clear view of the Horizon and the Stars – or an increasingly Clear view of the Truth of our own Self-Sovereignty.  On the Cusp of Virgo, there promises to be a good deal of Ego Death.

While it’s nigh time to Let all this Go so we can Descend Cleanly into the Void, knowing where we’ve been and where we’ve been headed may help us understand where we are and where we’re headed next.  The Big Initiations we’ve recently been through, which will tell us where we’re heading, include…

Bear in mind that after an Initiation the Cycle goes Underground, so don’t expect to hear about these New Energies on Weasel News.  But you can Trust that these Energies are building beneath the surface.  It’s too soon to start a new business that serves the World, but it’s not to0 soon to locate co-conspirators to join to plan new endeavors that aid the other Initiates who are ready to move forward ahead of the pack.  You might even catch up to the teenagers.

For instance, what if you were a lawyer, and starting in the 1970s you developed a secondary specialty in sexual harassment cases.  Gloria Allred did that, and even though the big breakthrough around #MeToo didn’t arrive until recently, she kept up a thriving business keeping the matter in the public eye while it continued to be a very Underground issue.  It takes a lot of Self-Sovereignty to follow a thread through the Underground, but it pays off.  The Demand will be there, just not on Weasel News.

Response-Ability 4

May 17, 2017

This ongoing Dance between Pholus (Respond-Ability) and Quaoar (Survival Instincts) has been going on for several years; we’ve just been Paying Attention to other issues because they were more Prominent in the charts.  The Dance has been happening on the Cusp of Capricorn.  We can’t help but think that Pholus-Quaoar is about Global Warming, Ascension, and the Patriarchy.  We think of Capricorn as the “Just Do It” Sign, and Pluto (the Mandatory that can be Directed but not Reversed) is about to enter the Virgo Decanate of Capricorn (2018-2024).  That Decanate would imply “Just Break Down your Olde Ego, K?”

The Cusp of Capricorn is of course the northern Winter Solstice.  In many ancient traditions a Day begins at dusk of what most of us would usually consider the evening before, and a Year begins at the Winter Solstice.  To the Romans it initiated Saturnalia, their equivalent of Oktobefest, a celebration of disregard and reversal of the everyday rules of social discourse.  The conversion of Saturn and Capricorn (which are first cousins) from rule-flaunting to rule-making was done by the early Christians in order to enhance their Political (Either/Or) Control over the People. 

The Romans had the luxury of their Mediterranean climate.  For folks further north, the Winter Solstice meant likely hardship, dependence on Community, and the necessity to Attend to The Most Important Thing – Surviving another northern winter.  That yields the primary keywords for Capricorn and Saturn, respectively Pragmatism and Focus.

Like Aries (northern Spring), Cancer (northern Summer), and Libra (northern Autumn), Capricorn is a Cardinal or Creative Sign, signifying a Rebirth.  Aries is the Rebirth of the Indwelling Spirit (Fire) as fresh evidence of the Life Force emerges in northern Plants and Animals in March.  Cancer is the Rebirth of Compassion (Water), as the northern Earth begins to generate a surplus in June (Radishes at least, and all the Leaves we can eat).  Libra is the Rebirth of Community (Air), as the northern September Harvest requires Cooperation and Fair (ideally anyway) distribution.  And Capricorn is the Rebirth of Attention to Material Form (Earth), as Winter cold and snow demand a Focus on Physical Survival in December.

In parts of the Southern Hemisphere, the same pattern could be repeated because most of the habitable Southern Hemisphere landmass lies much closer to the Equator than in the Northern Hemisphere.  In many locations Aries represents recovery from estivation rather than recovery from hibernation.

We can see Western Civilization as a massive social experiment to see what happens when the Individual is celebrated as the Highest Expression of Huperity, rather than the Community.  Though it very much feels like a failure, it’s not a pass/fail test, it’s an experiment.  The Balance between Community and Individual isn’t a linear trend, it’s a sine curve.  As China replaces Europe and the US in the role of World trendsetter, the Balance will swing back toward Community.  Not that the Chinese are any less Patriachal, they’re just more likely to be smart enough to know when Change is necessary.

Here are a few Timepoints that you can compare to your Journal and your Schedule…

  • Mid-January through November 2015 – Quaoar on Galactic Center
  • Early February through December 2016 – Pholus on Galactic Center
  • Late January 2017 – Quaoar enters Capricorn
  • Early March through November 2017 – Saturn on Galactic Center
  • Late March 2017 – Pholus and Quaoar simultaneously Stationary (turning Retrograde) while one Degree apart across the Capricorn Cusp
  • Early June 2017 – Quaoar backs into Sagittarius
  • Mid-September 2017 – Pholus and Quaoar simultaneously Stationary (turning Direct) in Sagittarius
  • Early December 2017 –
    • Pholus Initiates Saturn in 29 Sagittarius, “A fat boy mowing the lawn of his house on an elegant suburban street
    • Quaoar re-enters Capricorn
  • Late December 2017 –
    • Saturn enters Capricorn
    • Quaoar Initiates Saturn in 1 Capricorn, “An Indian chief claims power from the assembled tribe
  • 2018-2021 – Pholus and Quaoar continue to Dance closely at their Stations
  • 20 February 2022 – Quaoar Initiates Pholus in 7 Capricorn, “A veiled prophet speaks, seized by the power of a god”

Remember that the Digital Age begins in earnest in late 2020.

We can’t address Response-Ability without commenting on “New Age Guilt.”  New Age Guilt is a misunderstanding of Taking-Responsibility-to-Create-Your-Own-Reality that occurs when Creating is seen from the Perspective of Blame.  I’ve a friend that suffers from a serious disease and a nasty hospital-acquired superbug infection.  If they try to Take the Blame for this Past Creation, then absolutely it may turn out to feel like Guilt, though I’m not sure how that Blame or Guilt would be related to “New Age.”

Blame, remember, means Assigning Cause to Past events and circumstances.  Sure, with perfect foresight they might have been somehow able to sidestep the Triggers for their misfortune, but it would be a real stretch to Blame them for it.  On the other hand, my friend is absolutely Taking Responsibility to Improve their Future Outcomes, which is exactly how Response-Ability is defined.  They are very much Intending to Create an Improved Reality for themselves in the Future, preferably the Near Future.

In Jane Roberts’s seminal Nature of Personal Reality, Seth points out that it’s Easy to know the nature of our Karma, all we need to do is summarize our Current-Lifetime Personal History.  So sure, if you want to Blame someone’s Present-Moment Ego for all of their Past Lives, you might aver that they have “Created Their Own Past Reality,” but what a stretch that would be.  It would be like that movie where they prosecuted people for crimes that they might commit in the Future.

That doesn’t mean we don’t all have the Opportunity to review our Current-Lifetime Personal History and try to fathom how to read our Limiting Beliefs from the Funhouse Mirror that it is, and use the information to reduce our Self-Sabotage.  Karma remember is Inertia – Olde Habits and their underlying Beliefs – not Retribution.  The notion that we need to be Punished, for whatever, is just Power-Over, usually perpetrated by Religions and Governments.  So it may make some sense to speak of Religious Guilt or Government Guilt.

Another way to look at the difference between Blame and Response Ability, is to look at how our Ego is defined in our self-concept.  If our Operating Ego is Merged with our Individual Soul, then we may be Open to encompassing all of our other Past and Parallel Lives, and extending our Response Ability to some of the issues in those Lifetimes, including any hypothetical Habits and Beliefs Created in those Lifetimes that may linger into the current Lifetime. Of course we’re talking about Sainthood here.

If on the other hand our Ego is Merged with our Physical Body, which Fear of Death would Betray, since our Soul is immortal; or Merged with our Dualistic mind, which would be Betrayed by the presence of Either/Or Judgment of any kind; or Merged with our Emotions and Betrayed by Resistance or Attachment to any of them.  Knowing this could help us define our homework.

Fate is what happens TO us when we’re Unconscious of the Archetypes (Karma) that run our Lives.  When we bring these into Consciousness we gain the Power to Choose otherwise, often referred to as “Free Will.”  Identifying with our Physical or mental or Emotional Bodies keeps Archetypes frozen in the Unconscious.  Identification with our Individual Soul is an ambitious Goal that most of will never achieve.  However, every step we can take in that direction will reduce our Self-Sabotage.

We can never say how accurate and how metaphorical we might be when sending a Healing to someone else (or even to ourself!), but when I send a Theta Healing to my friend for their affliction, the picture I get is one of Panic.  When I then send a Healing for their affliction and their Panic and their Belief that the superbug can kill their physical body, the picture I get is one of Peace and Competence.  So if we revert to the previous Response-Ability 3 post for Guidance, we might Wonder if it would help my friend to Ask themself whether they have an Ancient memory and a Held Emotion around Fear of Being Poisoned, and if so to see where it might lead to Tap that Out and Poor-Sweetheart it.

Moving from Blame to Response-Ability isn’t easy, because Blame is a Closed Universe.  There are no logical paths out of Blame; the only way to exit is is to PIAVA an exit.  Given our conditioning it’s even more difficult, but we’re even better off if we can glimpse the World through eyes other than Cause and Effect.  Cause and Effect is absolutely dependent on Linear Time, and every Spiritual tradition on the Planet advises that All There Is Is Now. 

Without Cause and Effect, there is no Blame.  Response-Ability can run completely on PIAVAs – no need for Cause and Effect at all.  Your PIAVAs don’t “Cause” your Future Outcomes, they “merely” have potential to shift the Beliefs that Control your Perceptions of “Reality.”

Yintegrity Rising

June 23, 2016

A reader writes…

I don’t think they are happy with me.  I am not following their tradition and I’m not sure what the impact of that will be, but I don’t care!  I’m not doing what I should, I’m doing what I want.  And that is SO different for me.

“I’ve always been the analyze/plan/execute person.  I do my duty.  I fulfill my promises.  If I commit, I follow through.  Period.  No doubt.  No question.  I guess what you would call “Yangtegrity.”  And it has served me well.  Very well.  For my whole life.

“Over the past…18 months, two years, there’s been a growing resistance to all of it!  I don’t even want to show up half the time!  (I’ve always taught my kids-Showing up is 80% of success.)  My intellect is so confused, my ego is having panic attacks.  Is this moving into Yintegrity?  

“There’s a third part of me that is very calmly standing by, reassuring that we’ll work out a new way of functioning, everything will be fine, the earth will not stop spinning on its axis.  So is that the pressure and fear I’m feeling?  The shift into Yintegrity?”

You bet!!  

And like any Big Change, there’s a hollow space, a gap, where our Olde Ego is in Lackawanna (“I know I’m done for; why should I care?”), and our New Ego hasn’t got its training wheels on straight yet.  So we’re wobbly.  Confusion is good; it’s a reliable sign that we’re Growing.  Anxiety is common, as our Olde Patriarchy-Attuned Egos needed to know what was going on so they could figure out who to Please how, when.

Time for PIAVAs.  “Great Spirit, please help me Trust my True Future so I can Surrender my False Past more comfortably” or the like.  “I wonder where the Hell I’m going, anyway.”  With Saturn Waning Square to Neptune and moving into the Void Space between them, The Most Important Thing (Saturn) is Confusion (Neptune).  Neptune symbolizes Confusion when viewing the World through Material Eyes, and Clarity when we shift to Spiritual Eyes.  “Ganeshi, please Remove all Obstacles to Opening my Third Eye.”

 Another timely story…

https://alchemicalastrology.wordpress.com/2016/06/21/professionautism/

Love the title – ProfessionAutism.  I read it as Professionalism twice before I noticed the Aut.  In another post she says Pluto is on her Moon – I don’t know of any greater Emotional Challenge.  A perfect time to “hang loose,” but not even that is easy under Pluto-Moon.  “God/Goddess, Creator of All That Is, I Command that Ease and Grace fill my Life.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank you, God/Goddess. … Show me.”

That’s a simplified form of Theta Healing.  Once you say “Show me,” look to see whether your Vision or other Intuitive Sense shows you bathed in Ease and Grace.  If not, look to see what else you need to Command.  Maybe Trust, or Enough to Eat, or just Breathing.

When the World, or your Community, or just your Household or Camp, operates through Yintegrity, the whole World is different.  People do things when they want to, and when someone resents something not being done, it’s up to them to recognize that it’s their job to do.  Or their job to inspire (not require or bully) someone else to do it, maybe as a group project where participation is of course optional – you would join or not because, in the moment, it’s more fun than doing otherwise.  

The Most Important Thing gets done, even if it’s not what you thought was The Most Important Thing.  Between the Waning Saturn Square to Neptune and the next Initiation, Cultures break down.  The next Neptune-Saturn Initiation isn’t until 2026, six years into the Digital Age.  It’s at the Aries Point – Manifestation into (Feminine) Form.  Aries Creates by Instinct, not by having a picture beforehand of the “finished” product.  Creating and “finishing” are two different Universes, with only accidental intersections.

Here’s a picture of it anyway – it’s not a “finished” picture, but a picture of the Yintegrity process unfolding…

https://cristenrodgers.net/2016/06/23/speak-your-truth-not-your-mind/

I would suggest though, that “The ways in which Other Living Things can speak may also be almost infinite – the truth or a lie, clearly or in riddles, with language or with art.”  We maybe just haven’t heard them yet, till we get our Third Eye – or Ear – Open.  And that Everything is Living.

And, Saturn runs a Gauntlet of Initiations before it gets back to Neptune – Ixion, Pholus, Quaoar, the Galactic Center, Chariklo, Hylonome, Pluto. OR10, and Nessus!  Saturn will be a very different Animal by then, and we will be too.  Sounds like this Gauntlet would be worth a post of its own, eh?

And we didn’t even notice that Saturn was Initiated by the Great Attractor this last February, with an Exposition in May!  The Great Attractor is Headquarters to the Galactic Center – Cosmic HQ.  No wonder it’s been a heavy year so far, as if we haven’t had enough excuses!  We’re being asked to align ourselves with an Energy more Powerful than even Galactic Energy.
