Self-Love Full Moon

February 8, 2020

A few of the Players have changed Partners, but otherwise the chart for the 8 February 2020 (11:30 pm PST) Full Moon is identical to the lovely symmetrical chart for the 5 February Self-Deprecation Squall (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2020/02/01/possible-self-deprecation-squall/), which hopefully for youalls turned out to be a Self-Love Squall.

We still have a Major Challenge (T-Square) to our Unconscious Limitations (asteroid Vesta), which is always fabulous, as long as we Recognize that it’s our Limits that are Threatened and not our Ego.  This one will be more In-Our-Face than the mid-week event (the base of this T-Square is the Full Moon itself, which is a junior SuperMoon; the base of the 5 February T-Square was Sun/ Essence Opposing asteroid Lachesis/Conscious-Pattern-Breaking).

And while our Codependence or Self-Sovereignty was Challenged mid-week (T-Square to Jupiter and dwarf planet Hylonome), the Full Moon will Challenge our Wannas and Gottas (T-Square to Pluto) themselves.  This is about the New Bravery Zeitgeist (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2020/01/11/where-are-we-then/).  The more we Resist our Wannas and Self-Loving Gottas, the more we Resist our Brave New World (No matter how hard you Resist, Pluto always Wins).

Unfortunately, our Obsolete Self-Deprecating Gottas are often loaded with Guilt and other Brakes on our Journey into Unconditional Self-Love.  But if we override the Brakes and take a Self-Abusive Gotta too seriously, we could end up burning Bridges that we Need.  It would be a good time to PIAVA the best of both Worlds.  Maybe something like…

“God/Goddess, Creator of All Things, I Command a Loving and Gentle and Smooth Transition from my Old Scarcity Identity to my New Abundance Identity.  It Is Done, It Is Done, It Is Done.  Thank you, God/Goddess.  Show me!”

And as we described a few posts back (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2020/02/01/possible-self-deprecation-squall/), if your “Show me” isn’t Paydirt, Tap it Out, adjust your Command if necessary, and try again.

Midweek, our Sovereignty was Challenged by our Karma and our Self-Love (asteroids Karma and Sappho Opposing one another in the T-Square base).   Now we’re Challenged to End our Karma by Opening to “New” Information and Lovingly Expanding our Consciousness to Encompass It (asteroid Atropos/Consciously-Ending-Obsolete-Habits, dwarf planet Eris/Revelation-of-What’s-Been-Denied and asteroid Karma Opposing Stationary asteroids Juno/Growth-in-Consciousness and Sappho/Self-Love in the base of the T-Square).

The information we’ll be Receiving is “New,” in quotes, because we knew it all along, our Old Identity just didn’t Allow ourself to Acknowledge it.  This morning for instance, I discovered that when I’m interrupted while concentrating deeply, my behavior and tone of voice are “vicious.”  I didn’t know that.  In retrospect I can see it.  In the moment, all I’m trying to do is Protect the Space that I’m concentrating in (Channeling these posts, for instance, or juggling several tasks at once), so I don’t lose the plot.  Knowing this now, I can retrain myself to smile, raise a finger, and say “Please Wait?!?!” or the like.

The deed to the ranch is still Working with our Higher Powers, Guides, and Guardian Angels (Neptune as the key Player at the Apex of the Chrysalis and the Finger of God from Moon and Juno).  So it will behoove me to enlist them in this Behavior Change, with a Theta Command or other PIAVA, to make sure I stay Conscious for Interruptions while I’m Concentrating, because my Trance can obviously get pretty Deep in those circumstances.  I may even end up drastically Changing the way I use that Trance.  What if I could use if for Direct Healing?

Here’s the Full Moon chart…

There are three Stationary planets in this chart.  Sappho was Stationary on 5 February, and it loosely Conjoins the 8 February (10am PST) Juno Station.  The third Station, of dwarf planet Sedna/Converting-Fear-to-Power also occurs 8 February (7:30 pm PST).  Here’s the chart of the Juno and Sedna Stations…

The Juno and Sedna Stations Quincunx/Curiosity one another, and because the Sedna Station stretches the Sensitivity of the Juno Station, Juno Conjoins dwarf planet Haumea/Rebirth, making our Expansion of Consciousness potentially Life-Changing.

In these two extra-credit astroevents that accompany the Full Moon, the Big Challenge (T-Square) to how we Balance our Wannas and Gottas (Pluto) gets more complicated.  Now it becomes The Most Important Thing (it’s joined by Saturn and…), and it’s Critical to how we Balance our Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt (…dwarf planet Chariklo/Self-Assurance).

Since this is the Heart of the New Zeitgeist, it means that our Expanded Consciousness must Bravely Acknowledge Self-Doubt and Fear when they arise, so they can be Reframed into Confidence that by combining Vulnerability and Research we can Resolve the Doubt and Embrace the Fear, and no longer Introject Doubt into our IdentityWouldn’t that be the Cat’s Pyjamas!

These two events also add another Big Challenge, this time to our Skill with Ego Death (T-Square to asteroid Nemesis/Ego Death).  Of course we’re going to be working with Ego Death, as Transformative as these Challenges seem to be.  It’s a complicated Challenge (the base of the T-Square finds dwarf planets Chaos/Unlimited-Potential and Asbolus/Intuition Opposing Mars, dwarf planet Ixion/Forbidden-Genius, and asteroid Bee-Zed/ Transcendence).  Which means that, if we’re Willing to Let Go Of our Resistance to Ego Death, we can glimpse the Wonders that our Forbidden Genius can Manifest for us.

Finally, we need to Recognize that Converting Fear to Power is a strong theme here, and be Watchful for it.  Remember near the beginning of this post, where we mentioned our “Old Scarcity Identity?”  That’s Scare-City.   We need to trade it in on a Joyful New Abundance Identity…

Fortunately, our work Converting Fear to Power (Sedna Station), and both of the Big Challenges (Foci of the two T-Squares) – our Confidently Brave New Identity (Saturn-Pluto-Chariklo) and our Willingness to Endure Ego Death (Nemesis), are all joined at the hip with Great Grace (Grand Trine/ Impossibly-Good-Luck).  So we may not actually have to Endure the Ego Death – it may just “happen,” and we may sail through it with little or no Discomfort, as it did for my vicious Evil Twin this morning.  It will pay, though, to be Proactive (Mars).  Don’t sit on it, take a Deep Breath and Bravely start a conversation about it.

I Guess We’re Here

January 13, 2020

Brenda Hoffman has an intriguing message for today…

https://lifetapestrycreations.wordpress.com/2020/01/13/your-co-creators-have-arrived/

“January 12, 2020, is a watershed date in your lives and that of all inhabiting earth at this time. For it is as if something clicked inside your hearts, your beings that shifted you from fear to love.

“This shift will not be displayed immediately because many, perhaps including you, have to adjust to the new sensations this shift created. Even though you might have been prepared for something before January 12, this something has never been experienced by you or any earth being. It is as if a shaft of light pierced your tough earth shell.

“Perhaps you think that such comments are a fairytale for how is it possible that one day can create such upheaval?

“This shift will cause many to feel that what was up is now down, and what was down is now up. Because these new sensations will feel unnatural, frightening, it is likely something most will not discuss them. For they will believe that doing so makes them seem odd.

“Those of you in the know will merely adjust as you have to every other burst of energy throughout your earth life. Others, feeling as if their life has been turned upside down, will be the most frightened.

“Even though humans are familiar with the fear of change, this energy event is a tsunami of change. It will be as if someone woke up one night with a new emotional body and must do everything in the dark without understanding how to do so. There will be fear and anger. Not because this shift is bad or damaging, but because it will seem so foreign. So it is many will test these new feelings by doing the exact opposite of their intuitive directives. A confusing time for most.

“You, the forerunners, will slip into your new being easily and effortlessly for you have prepared to do so since you began this transition.

“Those not as open to transitioning beyond 3D as you will be confused and attempt to return to their former feelings only to discover they can not.

“This is a mass transition of proportions you can not begin to envision. For anyone who has dreamt of moving beyond fear and angst will shift rapidly. Such does not mean that in two days all of the earth will be like you, but instead that everyone who wishes to will have their heart opened.

“January 12, 2020, is not a day to take lightly. Allow yourself to move as you wish. And allow the same for all others. For their fear will be displayed long before their heart actions. Just as was true for you when you initiated your transition. The difference is, you have likely been in transition for decades or years. Those now at the beginning stages will shift within days or months.

“You are their beacon – allowing those frightened to know that all is well.

“You will also shift. But your shift will be polishing more facets of your diamond being. Those beginning their transition are discovering their diamond self in the rough.

“Your role and only role is to continue a joy focus. For if you allow yourself to be in fear with those just beginning to transition, they will become more frightened, perhaps not even able to function.

“You are the beacons of the world. Allow yourself to know and accept that.

“All who wish are transitioning or beginning their transition as of January 12th, 2020. You have little to do other than to inform those who wish to know that all is well.”

Well, as they say, “Trust but Verify.”

But then, according to our own previous post, aside from the main effect of 12 January’s Big astroevent about Transforming (Pluto) our Priorities (Saturn) to accommodate (Squared by) What’s Been Denied (dwarf planet Eris) – along with its embellishments (Mercury/Awareness, dwarf planet Chariklo/Confidence-and-Doubt) – the Big Challenge (T-Square) was about Trust (asteroid Eurydike), wasn’t it.  The Challenge to Trust was from the Veracity of the Shift (asteroids Veritas/Facts and Bee-Zed/Transcendence) and our Insights about the Incredible Scope of the Change (dwarf planets Asbolus/Intuition and Chaos/Unlimited-Potential)!

And that doesn’t even include what we Believe to define the context for the 12 January event (namely the 10 January Stations/Strength of Uranus/Soul-or-Consciousness which in Taurus is Descending into Matter, and of Eris/Revelation itself, along with the Eclipse/Illumination), which we might summarize as Huperity Becoming Aware that Matter has been Conscious all along.  Which is the Missing Core Belief in the Western Worldview that is Messing Up the Planet for Huperity and Everyone Else.

So unless Brenda has been reading this blog, which I very much doubt, her post is a remarkable “Coincidence.”  What I’ve been Feeling, myself, is quite a lot of Fear.  I’ve been working with it, Tapping and PIAVAing to get Grounded, but even then I’ve Lacked Clarity on a couple of Issues that seem Important.  Till this morning.  Then I remembered to Poor-Sweetheart myself –

“You Poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Scared, aren’t you.”

And Wham, suddenly there’s Excitement, tonnes of it!  Now I even Remember to Breathe, and to Kegel if necessary!

Where Are We, Then?

January 11, 2020

It’s a good time for an overview of what’s going on…

Most Important, we’re ending one 35-year (or so) Cycle and beginning another.  We use three primary sources to interpret the meaning of a particular Cycle as a whole…

First, we use the natures of the planets involved.  Here we’re referring to the planet that symbolizes The Most Important Thing – our Priorities (Saturn) and the dwarf planet that stands for Transformation and The Primary Background Theme of the Times (Pluto).  Lest we ossify, our Personal and Political Priorities will need to Change when this Zeitgeist Changes.

Those with a significant Investment in the Old Cycle will Propagandize like crazy to try to maintain the fruitfulness of their Investment.  You can see this happening around the Decline of the Patriarchy.  Mainstream Institutions and captive media make it look like the Patriarchy is at its peak.  The next phase of greater Gender Balance may take a step backward for every two forward, but rest assured it’s on track to watch the Patriarchy crumble into the toxic slough of its own Hubris.

Feel free to Allow your own Investment in the Old Cycle to Feed you while it fades, but bear in mind that the Cycle is already Dead, so your profits will slowly Decline.  Your primary Efforts are better spent laying the Groundwork for your Investment in the New Cycle.  It will be a while before you hit paydirt, but you’ll have the advantage of being well prepared when the Market comes looking for you.  In the case of this New Cycle, the Market won’t fully hatch till 2028 (when Saturn reaches its Waxing Square to Pluto), but it will gradually increase till then.

A parallel Shift occurs when a planet Changes Sign.  For someone of my own vintage, the classic example was the Shift from when the Zeitgeist (Pluto) was in the Sign of Nurturance (Cancer), to when it moved into the Sign of Self-Reliance (Leo).  My parents and their peers could not understand how my own cohort could forsake Security (Pluto in Cancer) in order to pursue Self-Expression (Pluto in Leo, especially when Pluto was Out of Bounds, as it was off and on from 1938 till 1953.  The Shit hit the Fan in the 1960s, when many of these people reached maturity just as the New Uranus-Pluto Cycle was Born).

We’ll find similar Gaps between people, projects, and Institutions that are born in different Cycles of Zeitgeist-attuned Priorities (Pluto-Saturn).  How will these Differences Manifest?  We need to look at Differences in the natures of the Expiring and the Emerging Cycles themselves, which we glean from the second and third sources of interpretation…

 The second source of meaning is a Reading for the Degree of the Birth of the New Cycle(Outer planet Conjunctions will typically occur several to many times; their first Conjunction in the Cycle defines the Birth of the New Cycle.)  Like each of the twelve Signs, the 360 Degrees of the Zodiac also each have traditional meanings (commonly read through their Sabian Symbols, which were Channeled in the 1920s).

The Priorities-Zeitgeist (Saturn-Pluto) Cycle that’s Ending began in 1982 as “A person becoming aware of spiritual forces surrounding and assisting them(the Sabian Symbol for the Degree of the first Conjunction of that Cycle, 28 Libra).  I doubt that Dick Clark or his clones will ever characterize the Zeitgeist of the 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s as Awareness of Spiritual Forces Surrounding and Assisting us, but in retrospect I certainly regard exactly that as the Most Important Change in my own Life since the 1980s.

It was in the early 1980s that I had an office downtown, and was riding a bus across town on an errand when I sat down next to a young lady and just to make conversation, asked her what she “did.”  She said she was a “Psychic.”  I almost fell off the bus, I was so surprised.  I thought that happened only on television.  I signed up for a Past-Life Reading, and it literally blew my mind, because of the extraordinary Sensations of Limitlessness that I felt during the Reading, and that episode led to meeting my First Spiritual Teacher.

 So, what about the New Cycle?  Its Anthem is “A soldier receiving two medals for bravery in combat(the Sabian Symbol for 23 Capricorn).  Now that is a Change of Zeitgeist.  I don’t think it needs to be about War, as we can be totally Brave in many other ways – standing up to the Bullies, Speaking our Truth, Keeping the Faith, Mediating Hopelessly Polarized Disputes, Praying for Lost Causes, Resisting War, etc.  While the Old Cycle fades from the mainstream, What We’ve Learned From It never goes away.

Over the last 35 years we’ve Learned that we not only don’t have to Do It All Ourself, but also that it’s simply Silly Egotism to think that we Do Any of It Ourself.  We are Transformers.  Our greatest Power lies in Directing the Show, in “PIAVAing” (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/) the World We Want to Live In, in our Intentions.  The Material World is Created in the Image of someone’s Vision of it, usually the Vision of a lot of someones.  We need to Step Up and Take Command of the Role of the Visioner.  We need to do that for the Planet and All of its Residents.  We can be a Brave Soldier in that Endeavor.

For instance, we can help the Patriarchy Save Face as it Dies Out, so its Ego doesn’t have to Cling so tightly to its Illusion of Power.  We can thank it for holding the place together while we figured out the Next Step.  We can Lovingly and Gently demonstrate Power-With when we see people getting all tied up in Power-Over, to show them that there are other ways.

We can Create our own Institutions rather than beating our heads against the wall trying to take down the Patriarchy’s Institutions.  If we demolish an Institution, it creates a Power Vacuum that someone else can step into, and the Outcome is likely to be Worse.  Better to just Create a New Institution to serve Our Goals, one that will already be up and running, ready to step into, when the Old one faceplants.

Our third source of interpretation for the Old Cycle is its Birth Chart.  On this score the Old Cycle’s 1982 Natality featured two major Changes (Squares).  First, the Movement from Victim of to Mastery over Materiality (Saturn-Pluto Opposing asteroid Karma, and Chiron Squaring dwarf planet Makemake).  I know, this is the exact period of the Decline of the US Middle Class, but not everyone has Learned to Accept the Assistance of the Spiritual Forces Surrounding them.  It’s also a period where more and more people have Realized that Abundance means Having Enough to Share, not Having More than Anyone Else.

The second Movement was from Hope to Trust (asteroid Eurydike Squaring Neptune), as we’ve Learned how to Communicate with the Spiritual Forces Surrounding us and how to Collaborate with them to Manifest What We Want.  The mass market edition of Shakti Gawain’s germinal book Creative Visualization hit the streets in 1982, just as the new Old Cycle began.  For the last third of a Century we’ve been Practicing for Ascending into 5D(Find more about 5D in Michael J. Roads’s books.  Find more detail about the Old Cycle’s Natality at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/11/10/january-2020-ii/.)

 The Birth Chart of the New Cycle teaches us a great deal about preparing for the next 35 years.  The chart of the ZeitgeistPriorities Initiation (Pluto-Saturn) itself gives us the Tools to be Aware of the Change (Saturn-Pluto Conjunct Mercury Out of Bounds), to make it Sustainable (Conjunct dwarf planet Ceres/Sustenance), and to have Confidence in it (Conjunct dwarf planet Chariklo/Confidence).  It also advises us that many Secrets that the Old Order kept Hidden will come forward into the Open (Saturn-Pluto Square dwarf planet Eris/Revelation).  We’re advised to Accept the Consequences of Aligning with Truth, rather than trying to maintain the Status Quo.

This chart also tells us that we want to Trust that New Facts will be Transformative, and Trust our Intuitions that the Future will be no Bigger than our Dreams for it (asteroid Eurydike/Trust T-Square to asteroids Veritas/Truth and Bee-Zed/Transformation Opposite dwarf planets Chaos/Unlimited-Potential and Asbolus/Intuition).  In other words, we need to be Creatively Visualizing a World that is Far Beyond what we would normally Want to Manifest.  Whatever you Want, make your Prayers and other PIAVAs much much Bigger and Better than that!  (For more detail about the New Cycle’s Natality, see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/11/17/january-2020-iii/.)

 Astroevents are always embedded in Time, so any astroevent must also be seen through the eyes of What Else Is Going On at the time.  The Beginning of the New Zeitgeist-Priorities Cycle is Blessed with A Lot Going On, and it Goes Deep.  In our view, Saturn represents Ego.  The Mythological Saturn’s mother was Gaia, and his father was Uranus – Saturn was the child of Earth and Sky.  Saturn and his siblings were Titans, and were kept inside the Earth, where they caused Gaia pain.  Gaia asked her children to neuter their father to prevent further pain, and only Her last-born Saturn was willing to do it.

In our view, Uranus represents the Soul.  So the story is about Ego taking Control over the Soul’s Ability to Create.  5D is about Recognizing the Consciousness inherent in Matter, and Manifesting in Cooperation With Gaia/Nature and Uranus/Soul rather than in Defiance Of the Life Force in Nature and the Soul.  Saturn/Ego‘s own son Zeus was the father of the Patriarchy, with its focus on 3D Hierarchy and Power-Over rather than 5D Cyclicity, Equality, Interdependence, and Power-With.

Regular readers know that we consider the Influence of a planet to peak when the planet Stands Still in the Sky, as the outer planets do twice a year (when they turn Retrograde or Direct).  So we consider a planet that’s Standing Still in the Sky to have more Power in the moment than a planet that’s Beginning a New Cycle.  In other words, we regard the entire New Cycle to be Devoted to the Mission of a planet that’s Standing Still at the Initiation of the Cycle.

 Well, at the Beginning of the New Zeitgeist-Priorities Cycle, two planets were Standing Still.  The first was none other than Uranus/Soul, whose Mission at the moment is the Descent of Soul into Matter (Uranus in Taurus/Earth), which we can also invert and read as the Ascent of Ego into Soul, or into 5D.  Astrology doesn’t comment on the Nature of Reality, but only on the Relationship between Huperity and Reality.  So one way to look at the Mission of Uranus in Taurus, is as the Reanimation of Nature and the Earth by Hupers.

We can see the New ZeitgestPriorities Cycle as offering “two awards for Bravery” in the Reanimation of Nature and Gaia.  Of course this is only one Interpretation.  But Matter Follows Energy, and Energy begins with Vision.  So this Interpretation can lead us toward 5D.  Other Interpretations can take their Visioners toward where they wish to go – more Power to them.  We don’t need to Compete with them; we can Co-Exist with them.  We don’t even have to be in the same Realities.  Many Holograms can occupy the same Space, if the concept of Space is even defined in such a picture.

The second planet that’s Standing Still in the Sky is the one that symbolizes Revelation of What’s Been Denied (dwarf planet Eris).  As we said before, this planet Challenges (Squares) the New ZeitgestPriorities Cycle.  But if there’s one Denial that’s leading to the Destruction of Life As We Know It, it’s the Denial of our Awareness of Consciousness in Nature and the Planet, and in Her Myriad of non-Huper Entities.  We can Vision and Create 5D in spite of that Denial, but the more Energy can be dedicated to a Vision of Life Cooperating With Life, the more Suffering can be reduced.

 What else is in the chart of the New ZeitgestPriorities Cycle’s Intimate Companion, the Station/Apex (Standing Still in the Sky) of Uranus/Soul?  This remarkable chart makes a Self-Resolving Challenge Full of Grace (a Diamond Star embedded in a Grand Trine, where a T-Square, Finger of God, and Grand Trine all point to the same planet, making everything work together Effortlessly.  Find the chart, and more details, at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/11/07/january-2020-i/).

Climate Change (the Conjunction of Quaoar/Survival, Pholus/Ability-to-Respond, and Aletheia/Truth-of-the-Heart) is in this chart as one of the Foundations for Self-Resolution (one foot of the Finger of God).  It could be that Climate Change will be the one Energy that finally Unites Huperity in the Awareness that We’re All in This Together.  The other Foundation is Memory (dwarf planet “OR10″/Intrusive Memories) – perhaps one of the Denials to be Revealed will be our Collective Memory of Atlantis.

The chart does Ask two things of us – that we Step Out of Victimhood (asteroid Moira/Fate-and-Choice Opposing Uranus, and asteroid Karma/Karma Conjoining Chiron/Despair-or-Miracles), and that we Stay Curious and Avoid Trying to Figure Out What’s Going On (the many Quincunxes in the chart).  If we covet those Medals, we just need to Bravely keep Speaking our Truth and Embracing the Life Force.  But we may find all this just Happening all on its own, while we just watch.

Bob in Australia sends us this note…

“Flash Storm at Uluru

“Uluru said goodbye to 2019 with a severe storm that lashed the nearby town of Yulara with lightning and torrential rain. The weather bureau reported this to be the type of storm that happens twice a century.

Lightning over UluruImage: Damien Hill Photography

“The bolt of lightning has traditionally been a symbol of sudden illumination and the destruction of ignorance.

“In Aboriginal mythology, the lightning man, who looks like a praying mantis is known as Namarrkon (and other names).  He uses the sun’s power as energy, forming bright arcs of light across each of his shoulders….”

This Energy is what Western Civilization (and Western astrology), worshiping as it does the Ego, misinterprets as Destruction.  It’s astrological symbol is Thor’s Hammer or the Octile Yod, which we call a Mjölnir, preferring the Norwegian name for Thor’s Hammer, because “Thor’s Hammer” is so linked to Violence and Power Over.

We could easily argue that the Main Event here isn’t so much the dreaded 12 January 2020 Saturn-Pluto Merger (The Most Important Thing is our Transformation), but the 10 January Station of Uranus/Soul as it recruits the Power of Saturn-Pluto to support its Descent into Matter (Uranus in Taurus).  In other words, the Reanimation of the Planet and Nature, which is the Most Important Thing we can do to turn around the Neo-Atlantean Self-Destructiveness of Egoic Humans. 

Note that Western Astrology doesn’t actually purport to talk about our external affairs; it talks about our Relationship to External Affairs.  Which is to say, if Hupers Learned to Respect the Consciousness in non-Huper Matter (whether Animated or not) and thus in their mind and Heart Learned to Reanimate the Planet, that in itself would Shift the Planet immensely.

The Eclipse, while it’s near the Degree of Saturn-Pluto, occurs on the day of the Uranus Station.  Which is also the day of the Eris Station, which Reveals That Which Has Been Denied.  Westerners interpret the Descent of Soul into Matter through their training as Christians, but Everything has Consciousness, and just about everything here except Hupers wear their Consciousness Responsibly.

So, what Mjölnir Graces the Uranus Station?  The Station is Trioctile to each end of the Square/Challenge between Truth (asteroid Veritas) and the Merger of Self-Love (asteroid Sappho) with Growth in Consciousness (asteroid Juno).

January 2020 V+

January 7, 2020

Resending this post, with an addition or two in blue…

The Archduke has been Assassinated, though Choosing Sides for the WW to follow hasn’t begun yet, officially.  Anyone who Believes that an “I for an I” means…

“Okay, I named the Reality first, so you Lose”

…as in “[I did this] to stop a war, not start one” must have Learned The Art of War from a starving banker, or from a bigger Bully.  One named Roy maybe.

I’ve met several people, though, who also woke up on 1 January 2020 feeling quite Differently, and very Mellow (perhaps abetted by Mercury/Awareness Out of Bounds/Strong crossing Jupiter/Expansion).  So in spite of my Cynicism about Huperity I actually don’t advocate “Lending our Strength to that which we wish to be Free From.”

While Ascension requires knowing that We Are All One, it also requires Liberation from Attachment to what Other People do.

On 4 January (9pm PST) and earlier, the dwarf planet that symbolizes Manifestation (Makemake) is very Strong (Exactly Stationary in 7 Libra).  A friend of mine celebrated this by getting a rebate for a less-than-Perfect trip on an airplane – to the tune of $1600.  Maybe the rest of us weren’t Dreaming big enough.

On 6 January (1pm PST) and earlier, the asteroid that symbolizes Beginning New TimeLines (Klotho) is very Strong (Exactly Stationary in 5 Gemini).  Start a New TimeLine where you Imagine how you’ll Feel when you Receive a surprise, unexpectedly large, check in the mail.

Also on 6 January and earlier, our Held Emotions (the ones we’d “rather Die than Feel”) could Feel magnified (Jupiter Merges with the South Node).  Start a New TimeLine where you Imagine how you’ll Feel when you’ve Learned to meet each Held Emotion with Delight because you Realize that Bummers which we haven’t Learned to Love yet are running our Lives from the Unconscious.  Now that would Manifest as Abundance!

On 10 January (11:30 am PST) the Full Moon is a Partial (Penumbral) Lunar Eclipse.  We regard Eclipses to be about Illumination.  This one just happens to Light Up (Oppose) the Convention of Heavies (Stellium of Sun, Ceres, Saturn, Pluto, Mercury, and Chariklo in 22-25 Capricorn) that dominates 3-14 January.  Lunar events often act as Triggers for Bigger Events.  The Moon Opposes the Heavies one after the other from 2pm till 7pm 10 January.

On 10 January (5:30 pm PST) and earlier, the dwarf planet that symbolizes Secrets Long Hidden Being Revealed (Eris) is very Strong (Exactly Stationary in 24 Aries).  Since you’ve already Started that New TimeLine where you’ve Learned to meet each Held Emotion with Delight, you’ll meet any unpleasant Secrets with Excitement.  Well, what if you did.

I can always tell when the planet which symbolizes Soul (Uranus) is very Strong (Stationary) because I can easily Sleep when I’m Tired, but I don’t get Tired very much.  It gets Manic around here.  As long as I Realize what’s going on, it happens without the Depressive part.

Well, this planet that symbolizes Soul is also very Strong at 5:30 pm on 10 January, at the same time as the dwarf planet that symbolizes Revelation.  Yes, could also be Revelations.

Also on 10 January (3am PST), the asteroid that symbolizes Truth of the Heart (Aletheia) enters the Sign that means Just Fix It (Capricorn).  This could be a very Potent combination, Soul, Revelation, and Truth of the Heart all Lit Up at the same time.  I’ve been Feeling some of that already.  If you thought about it, you might be too.  You may not even have to think about it.

And then on 12 January (9am PST) and earlier, we get what many of us have been Dreading, the Merger (Conjunction at 23 Capricorn) of Saturn (Focusing on The Most Important Thing) and Pluto (Compulsion and Transformation).  If you find yourself Compelled toward something you’d rather Leave Behind, Transform itIf we follow the Pattern of 2001, we may wait till the Ides of March to Feel the brunt of this Energy (Moon Begins Decade of being periodically Out of Bounds).

You might be very Surprised to find that Intention is all you need, especially since the Transformation of our Priorities (Saturn-Pluto) is Challenged by the Revealing of Long-Hidden Secrets (Square to the Station of Eris) and aided by Powerful Awareness (Mercury Out of Bounds Crossing Saturn-Pluto at 2am PST, before returning In Bounds at 7am PST).

It will be very important to be Mindful of Self-Doubt.  The dwarf planet that symbolizes Self-Confidence and Self-Doubt (Chariklo) sits just two Degrees past the Saturn-Pluto Merger, and it is also very Strong (Out of Bounds).  Our Awareness (Mercury) will be less Acute (no longer Out of Bounds) by 13 January (2am PST), when Awareness and Self-Doubt/Confidence Merge (Mercury Conjunct Chariklo) but our Self-Doubt/Confidence will still be very Strong (Chariklo Out of Bounds).

Remember that this is in the context of Powerfully Transforming the Most Important Thing.  If we could Create a New TimeLine that disables our Self-Doubt and cues our Self-Confidence instead, wouldn’t that make a huge Change in our Lives!  We could do that without getting trapped in Overconfidence, just by being Confident enough to say I Don’t Know.  If you give yourself Permission to go ahead and Dream Big, that could be just a PIAVA away (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/).

January 2020 IV

January 2, 2020

I don’t know about you, but I feel like an entirely different person today.  I’m assuming it has something to do with the New Year.

An email from a friend…

“Wow! I thought you all would definitely want to know…

“Can whoever is managing the Dragon Lines email list please forward this on?  And maybe to the Fairy Study group, as well?

“To each of you, Blessings on your work…

” ‘THE INTERRUPTED CEREMONY

” ‘In January 2020, a massive Planetary Energy activation is due to occur on Earth at the time of the Saturn-Pluto conjunction.  At this time, the Planetary Solar Plexus Chakra located at Uluru / Ayre’s Rock and Kata Tjuta / The Olgas, in Central Australia, will be fully activated.  Aboriginal lore tells of a ritual back in the Dreamtime that was interrupted and never completed.  This ritual was meant to fulfill the Great Plan of the Earth Spirit.

” ‘Once the ritual is consummated, “perfection will spread throughout the World”.  In other words, this ritual will open the way from 4th to 5th World Consciousness.  This event is symbolised by a great pole, or Cosmic Umbilical Cord, which unites Earth with the Sun.  It is predicted that this Cord will begin to function in 2020 AD, at the time of the Saturn-Pluto conjunction.
” ‘Together, Uluru and Kata Tjuta form the World Solar Plexus Chakra.  This is the primary Chakra for the maintenance of global health and vitality of the planet, and all living things.  If things are not right here, then the whole World system suffers.  It is now time for this to be healed.  The healing began in October, 2019, when a total ban on climbing the highly sacred site of Uluru was declared.

” ‘According to Robert Coon, author of The Rainbow Serpent and the Holy Grail, this powerful activation will also involve a blast of Divine Light and Energy through the song lines (ley lines) of the Planet, connecting all of Earth’s main Chakras together, and most especially one of the main Energy arteries/song lines referred to by the Aboriginal people as The Rainbow Serpent (representing Divine Feminine Energy to many).  This line starts at Uluru (Solar Plexus) and travels through Bali (World Purification Centre), to Glastonbury (Heart and Third Eye Chakras), to Lake Titicaca (Sacral Chakra) and then back around and through to Uluru.
” ‘The Planetary event in January 2020 is actually a rare quadruple conjunction involving Saturn, Pluto, Mercury and the Sun [plus dwarf planets Chariklo/Self-Confidence and Ceres/Sustainability].  The previously interrupted ceremony will culminate in the reactivation of the Solar Umbilical Cord of Planet Earth with the Sun, and on deeper levels with the Great Central Sun.  This, in turn, will assist in the creation of an archetypal communication between the Sun and Earth, to help us to more fully embrace a “Golden Age.”

” ‘Several weeks ago, one of our group received the message that “it is time to tap within.”  She was shown bubbles of light building up around the two Energy Centres of Uluru and Kata Tjuta.  She could see Aboriginal people singing this Energy into a bubble, then the waters breaking from an amniotic sac.  A pale blue, Crystalline Light and then a mauve Light built up around it.  She was told that part of the DNA of the Aboriginal people is vibrating and contributing to the birthing/activation.

” ‘We’re asking people to please send Energy to the Ngaltawaddi Ceremony being held at Uluru, located in the Northern Territory, Australia, on 12 January 2020, and to visualize the Cosmic Umbilical Cord being healed.”
” ‘Here are words to assist this healing of the World Solar Plexus Chakra:

” ‘Let the sun shine on Uluru and Kata Tjuta,
” ‘Let the Pathway of the Rainbow Serpent be clear,
” ‘So that greater health and vitality may circulate
Throughout the World to bless All Beings;
” ‘Today, breathe —– relax —– smile—- and give thanks to the Earth.’ ”
The Conjunction is Exact at 9am PST.
Here’s my Response…
“Here’s part of my take so far on the 12 January Saturn-Pluto Conjunction…

“Six things I didn’t explicitly include in that post…

“1. This ‘Event that will Focus the Attention of everyone on the Planet and Change the World – as seen from Huperville(which is what a Saturn-Pluto Conjunction means; think ‘9/11’ for instance) is seriously Challenged by (the “Square” between Saturn-Pluto and…) Revelation of That Which Has Been Ignored (dwarf planet Eris).

“2. Two planets are Outliers.  One way of looking at astrology would make those two planets the ‘Rulers’ of the entire chart.  The two symbolize Growth in Consciousness (asteroid Juno) and Our Instincts and the Feminine Perspective (the Moon), which are Very Strong (Stationary).

“3. In our historical and hysterical example of ‘9/11,’ the actual Saturn-Pluto event preceded the Earthly event by several weeks.  The Earthly event occurred when another astroevent which is very often a Trigger for larger events (the Moon, which began a new 11-year period of going Out of Bounds), which event can tend to make Hupers more Emotional, Triggered it.  That other event will repeat on the Ides of March 2020 (the evening, PST, of 16 March).

“4. The quotation mentions a ‘blast of Divine Light and Energy.’  While it’s been a possibility for years, it’s in the news again lately that the Star Betelgeuse may be about to Explode into a Supernova or Nova (et tu, Betelgeuse?).  That would be fitting.  According to Bernadette Brady, Betelgeuse is one of the most Benevolent Entities in the Sky. Currently, Betelgeuse Illuminates (Opposes) the Symbol for Climate Change (dwarf planets Quaoar and Pholus on the Cusp of Capricorn) and is Challenged by (T-Square to) Our Relationship with our Karma (asteroid Karma Conjunct dwarf planet Chiron)do we Regard it as a Curse or a Doorway to Liberation?  That’s important because if we seek Enlightenment, we need to adopt the latter Perspective.  (Details at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/12/27/survival-or-bust-viii-heavy-karma/.)

5. Mercury, the symbol for Awareness, which I usually mostly ignore because I focus more on what’s going on for us Unconsciously, will be Unusually Strong (just returning from being Out of Bounds).  (See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/12/22/oob-mercury/.)

“6. From my own astroview, the most prominent thing about this Saturn-Pluto Conjunction is that it is an important milestone (taking place as it does while Uranus is Stationary) in a larger trend, which is the Descent of Soul into Matter (Uranus in Taurus), which some refer to as “Ascension” (Ascend, Descend, it all depends on your point of view – we’d be clever to just call it a Merging of Soul and Ego).  (See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/11/07/january-2020-i/).

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.

 

January 2020 III

November 17, 2019

Okay, now that we’ve examined the Uranus-Station context, and the previous Cycle (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/11/10/january-2020-ii/), we can look at the 12 January 2020 (9am PST) Saturn-Pluto chart.  The first thing to notice about this chart is that the Solar System is in danger of falling over.  There are six planets within three degrees, eight planets in Capricorn, and eleven planets within thirty degrees, all on the Capricorn (Just Fix It!) side of the Zodiac…

We usually start any interpretation by looking for T-Squares (the red triangle), because those almost always give us trouble.  And yes, this one says that a fundamental issue will be Trust (asteroid Eurydice).  But when there’s something we don’t see every day – or every year, or every decade – like those six planets within 2½ Degrees! – we have to Pay Attention!  A Stellium, which is a multiple Conjunction, like this means that we may not be able to tell the difference between the planets.

That can be Disorienting – imagine not being able to tell the Difference between east and north, or east and west, or up and down, or right and wrong.  It can make the World look entirely Different than it usually does to us.  So in the first half of January, in addition to “a Self-Resolving Challenge and Great Grace extended toward our Vitality” (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2019/11/07/january-2020-i/), ALL of these Energies may seem to be Merging…

  • The Essence of Who We Are (Sun).
  • Sustainability or Sustenance (dwarf planet Ceres).
  • The Most Important Thing (Saturn).
  • Compulsion and Trance Reformation (Pluto).
  • Thought and Communication (Mercury).
  • Self-Doubt and/or Self-Confidence (dwarf planet Chariklo).

You can begin to imagine what that might feel like…

  • Who Am I?
  • Who Are You?  Do I even Know You?
  • I Need to Get Out Of Here Fast, but All These Things Are Weighing Me Down!
  • I’m Sorry I Have to Say This, But…
  • This Is So Much Different than 2019!  Everything Has Changed!
  • I Can’t Do This but I Need to Do Something!  I’m Frozen!
  • This Feels Like an Acid Trip, but I Can Handle It.
  • I Haven’t Been in a Place Like This Since I Was a Teenager, but At Least I’ve Been Here Before!  How Did I Survive Then?

I’m sure you can go on and on Imagining Meldings like these.  There are fourteen different pairs of Energies to combine here, before we even get to the triads, foursomes, quintuplets, and the sextuplet.

When Crabs crawl out of their old shell for their own Molt, they no longer have any armor.  Their new shell is soft and they’re lunch for any hungry passerby…

You may even have an Evolutionary or “Past” Life Memory of this, so you have every right to be Freaked Out.  With Uranus so recently Stationary (Strong), any part of our Ego that isn’t Ready for Soul Descension (often called “Ascension”) will be Freaked Out.  The more we can See this Freakout as an Ego Death rather than a Death Death, the Easier it will be.

Returning to the T-Square, we see that its base – the source of our Fear of Trusting – is our fuzzy Intuition about the sorts of Futures that our new Superpowers will be Creating (dwarf planets Asbolus and Chaos) and the Truth about our Transcendence (asteroids Veritas and Bee-Zed) and what we will be Leaving Behind.  These will be Exciting Futures, and we can be Excited about them if we Remember what Fear plus Breathing equals.

We also notice the blue lines.  If the blue lines were on the other side of the chart, it would be a Self-Resolving Challenge (Diamond Star).  As it is, the chart is like the Crab about to Molt, with its legs still folded up inside itself.  While Trust in our Undefined and Uncertain Future isn’t quite Self-Resolving (it lacks the Finger of God that makes a Diamond Star), it’s still Permeated with Grace (the double Trine Bridges), and the two Energies that will help us unlock this Grace are Respect for All Things (asteroid Hopi) and a Strong urge to Action (Stationary Mars).

The chart spans exactly half of the Zodiac, from 26 Gemini to 23 Sagittarius.  If we had a name for the empty half of the Zodiac it might be Our Maturity, the time when we Learn to Share (Cancer), to Stand on our Own (Leo), Confront Adversity (Virgo), Meet Other (Libra), Explore the Edges of Relationship (Scorpio), and Return to Vulnerability (Sagittarius), in preparation for Building Something (Capricorn).  This is what will be missing in January 2020 – Socialization.

When Socialization is missing, no one knows the “Rules” and the result is Chaos.  To the Builder, Chaos means Unlimited Opportunity.  To the Autocrat and the Fundamentalist and other Victims of their own Fate, Chaos means Terror.  As our newly Rebirthed Soul Descends, how will be Play this one?  The Crux of Trust (the focus of the T-Square) here is 22 Pisces, “A prophet carrying tablets of the New Law is walking down the slopes of Mount Sinai.”

Here’s the New Law…

http://theweathermakers.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Beleidsplan-stichting-The-Weather-Makers.pdf

Study it well.  There will be changes and extensions, but this is the basic program.  Find more at https://www.ecosystemrestorationcamps.org/.

If Socialization is absent, we have to Ask, Where Is Waldo Ixion, the master of Sociopathy?  Ixion is also of course the master of Genius, and the only one rude enough to Change the World.  Genius sits in the last Degree of Sagittarius where he’s joined by Boundaries (asteroid Pallas), by Truth (asteroid Aletheia), and by the Ability to Respond to the Unforeseen (dwarf planet Pholus) – a Challenging Stellium in its own right.  Sociopathic Genius Responding Fully by setting Boundaries against Someone Else’s Truth?  Truthful Boundaries Responding in Whatever Way Necessary to contain Sociopathic Genius?  We know the Dimension but not the Direction.

And where do We Stand in this Drama?  Is this our own Genius Acting Out?  Are we Standing Against someone else’s Sociopathy?  Both?  Do we Believe ourself to be The One Standing in Truth?  Are we Guarding the Boundaries, or Storming the Barricades?  We’re talking about the Heart’s Truth (Aletheia), it has nothing to do with Facts (that’s asteroid Veritas).  You can only Embrace or Reject the Heart, you cannot Refute it.

Ultimately, if any of us are to get to 5D, we have to Fully Respond to our own Pathological Genius AND Fully Accept everyone else’s Pathological Genius, and put them together Collaboratively, Win-Win.  The Puzzle won’t fit together any other way, short of Violence.  And are we Making Lots of Room for Mother Nature’s Pathological Genius, in all Her Multifarity?  Humans aren’t the only Conscious Entities here, and contrary to our androcentrism, we may discover ourselves to be among the Least Conscious Entities on the Planet.

The Sabian Symbol for the 23-Capricorn Degree of the Pluto-Saturn Initiation may begin to make sense – “A soldier receiving two medals for bravery in combat.”  The soldier may not be in uniform, and the combat may not be organized.

This Ixionic Knot is Challenged (Squared) by Self-Sovereignty (Lilith) and Despair or Miracles (Chiron).  If Ixion is a master of Miracles, then No One tells him what to do.  If not, he could be horsecollared by Despair, either his own or that of his self-appointed jury.

There are two other major points of focus in the Ixion chart – Rebirth (dwarf planet Haumea) and Fear (dwarf planet Sedna).  Will we let our Fear paralyze us?  Or will we Embrace it and Engender a Whole New World?  The 12 January 2020 Ixion chart…

January 2020 II

November 10, 2019

Oh, one more thing.  Before we look at the next, January 2020, Saturn-Pluto chart, let’s look at the last, November 1982, Saturn-Pluto chart, the Initiator of the Cycle that we’re just now finishing.  It was 7 November 1982 (5pm PST) in 28 Libra, “A person becoming aware of spiritual forces surrounding and assisting them.”  Does that sound like something that’s been going on for you over the last 37 years?  Of course, for the last ten years (since the Waning Square in 2 Libra-Capricorn of 15 November 2009) we will have been Letting Go Of (Waning Square) this Energy, so our Memory may have become dimmed.

In that chart, the Direction in which Major Grace was Flowing  (the Head of a Kite, or the planet Opposite one corner of a Grand Trine) was that The Most Important Thing in Life at that Time Was the New Trance that Was Being Formed (Saturn-Pluto), the Trance of Becoming Aware of Spiritual Forces (Sabian Symbol for 28 Libra).  Too many Stories to tell, but that was certainly massively, shockingly, and excitingly True in my Life then.

The Direction from which Grace was Flowing (the tail of the Kite) was our Karma (asteroid Karma).  That was around the time when I first read Seth’s (Jane Roberts’s) The Nature of Personal Reality, wherein one of the more Profound Truths He and she said, was that our Karma is easy to read – it’s written in our Personal History.  And if we don’t like it, then it’s up to us to Change it.  I don’t know about you, but that’s been a major theme in my Life over the last thirty-some years – as you well know if you’ve been reading this blog for any of its 32 years!

The corollaries (the other two corners of the Grand Trine) were Becoming Aware that Clarity replaces Confusion when we shift our Perspective from the Material to the Spiritual (Neptune), and Intuitions about How to Manifest What We Want (dwarf planets Makemake and Asbolus).  Those have also been prominently Lit Up in my own Life then and since, as I know they’ve also been prominent in the Lives of Others – think Oprah as just one example.

Converting Despair into Miracles (dwarf planet Chiron) and Trust (asteroid Eurydike) are also Strong in the 1982 Saturn-Pluto chart (both forming Strong Angles to the four corners of the Kite).  There is a very important astrological Configuration that instructs us to Let Something Be and Avoid trying to squeeze it into an airless Intellectual box by trying to Figure It Out so we think we Understand it – some Energies at some times are meant to be Enduring Mysteries, and this Configuration Illuminates those Energies (we refer to this Configuration as a “Tricolor” because it’s a triangle composed of a Square which we draw in red, a Quincunx in green, and a Trine in blue).

There are three of these Configurations in the 1982 Saturn-Pluto chart.  Two of them share the same Mystery, so there have been two Mysteries that should have predominated over the last Thirty-six years.  I’ll let you think about how much Energy you’ve spent trying to Figure Them Out rather than Letting Them Be.

The first Mystery (Quincunx in a Tricolor), the one that’s repeated twice, is about the Relationship between Converting Despair into Miracles (Chiron) and Becoming Aware that Clarity replaces Confusion when we shift our Perspective from the Material to the Spiritual (Neptune).

As has been my wont, I’ve ended up Overthinking this one, as during the 1980s I discovered that It’s Empathy that Converts Despair into Miracles, and having Discovered that, I’ve been putting Poor-Sweethearting to work early and often, even making it into a sort of quasi-religious meme.  The fact that Others don’t Resonate to it the way I do should have tipped me off that I was overthinking it.  In my Defense, I didn’t Realize till just now that, in the context of the Saturn-Pluto Cycle, it was this type of Mystery – all part of the Unwinding (last quarter) of the old Cycle.

The second Mystery of this type (Quincunx in a Tricolor) is the Relationship between Trust (Eurydike) and our Karma (asteroid Karma).

When I Intellectualize that, it seems clear that the more we practice our Karma – and Repetition is what Karma does for a Living – the more likely we are to Become Conscious of the Patterns and thereby not only replace Fate with Choice, but also Dissolve the Held Emotions that block our Intuition.  To me those are Big, Liberating Realizations, so I Let Them Go with some Grief, even as I see that More Powerful Insights wait on the other side of Letting Go Of thinking that I Understand this process.  So wish me luck as I Open myself to Those…

The 1982 Saturn-Pluto chart…

January 2020 I

November 7, 2019

There’s a lot of interest in January 2020, especially the Saturn-Pluto Conjunction (The Most Important Thing is Transformation – that is, Pay Attention to the Trance that Is Being Formed) on 12 January (9am PST), since many people consider both planets to be Malefic, and our History with them is checkered, as they’ve been used in the Past to Manipulate our Fear (eg at “9/11”).  Before I talk about that, though, we need to talk about three other things.

Firstly, if astrology ever Frightens or Worries you, that’s really important information, but it’s not about astrology.  That would be a serious case of Giving Away Your Power.  It is really important information about your Relationship to Fear and Anxiety.  The Opportunity is to Locate your Fear or Worry in your Body, Center your Attention there, Ask what you need to know about it, and then Patiently Listen, until the Energy Shifts.  You probably won’t get a “verbal” Answer.  You’re more likely to get “random” Memories, and those would be good clues about what you’re Really Scared or Worried about.  Fear is either about the Present (your Hair is standing on end)…

…or the Past (Oh Shit that’s threatening to Happen again!).  It may feel like you’re Scared or Worried about the Future, but I’m pretty sure that’s seldom the case.  We’re usually Scared or Worried that something in our Past will recur, and Clearing that out of our Karmic sandbox will Change our Future in ways we can’t Imagine.

Secondly, no planets are malefic, any more than certain kinds of Trees are Evil.  It’s our Projection from a cyst of Negativity in the Unconscious that’s maleficent.  And by the way, it’s not my Unconscious or your Unconscious, it’s the UnconsciousIt has no Boundaries, and no Ego.  It Is That It Is.  We just Live in it, and it’s inevitable that we’ll wander into a cyst of Negativity now and then, if not frequently.

Thirdly, Uranus (Soul) is Stationary (Strong) less than two days before the Saturn-Pluto Conjunction (the Uranus Station is 6pm PST 10 January 2020, the Saturn-Pluto Merger 9am PST 12 January 2020), so we’ll have more Resources than usual for dealing with whatever Saturn-Pluto brings.

The Uranus Station chart is exceptionally Positive, with a Self-Resolving Challenge and Great Grace extended toward our Vitality.  Since Descent of Soul into Matter will require Shifts in our Biology, this is a Powerful assist.

The chart features a Diamond Star and a Grand Trine pointing to dwarf planet Varuna, with Uranus Squaring Varuna.  The chart is also Supersymmetrical.

Descent of Soul into Matter is often referred to as Ascent of Matter into Soul, though they aren’t quite the same.  It’s not like liquids in a pipe or hose, where the flow is either one way or the other.  It’s more like two flashlights pointing at one another, but it does have a Breath, where the equivalent of an Inhale follows the equivalent of an Exhale.  In any particular moment one or the other may dominate, but the process is measured by the degree of interaction, not by the quantity of Descent or Ascent.

Realizing that all Matter is already Conscious and Ensouled will Clarify your Metaphors considerably.  Living in Full Effortless Flow with “Inanimate” Matter is like Living in a smoothly functioning Community, where you Intuit what your Neighbor needs and when they need it, and vice versa.  When we Realize that every definable portion of our Reality is a Conscious Neighbor, and when we Imagine that our own Consciousness is Expanded far beyond the Dual, we can perhaps begin to grok how that might work.

But as exceptionally positive as it is, the Uranus Station is not without “Suggestions” (or you might say “Warnings”) to help us maximize our Experience of it – by taking care to be Conscious of our Resistance to the Change.  The first Suggestion is that we Consciously Choose whether to Accept or Reject the Descent and Ascent.  Not that Descent of Soul and Ascent of Matter is a one-time event, it’s more of a long-term project, that we’ve been working on for a long time.  But there are critical phases and milestones, such as this one.

In the base of the Varuna T-Square, the Stationary Uranus is Opposed by asteroid Moira.  Moira symbolizes Fate, but Fate is only Fated when we’re Unconscious.  When we become Conscious of our Fate we gain the Choice whether to Live it out as Fated Karmic Patterns, or to Choose Alternatives.  The basic astropattern is Varuna T-Square Uranus Opposite Moira or Life Force (Animated Matter) Challenged By Soul Dancing With Fate/Choice.

The second Suggestion is that we remain Aware of the Messages of Climate Change.

The Sextile at the base of the Varuna Finger of God is between dwarf planet OR10 (Intrusive Memories) and a Stellium of asteroid Aletheia (Truth) and dwarf planets Pholus and Quaoar (Fully Able and Willing to Respond to our Survival Instincts).

I hope you can Imagine a situation where everyone on the Planet was Aware of not just the obvious Dangers of Climate Change like the Wildfires and the Superstorms, but also the Mass Extinction and Mass Migration that are already being caused by it, and a situation  where we all knew (Intuitively) what we each had to do, as one big Team, to Revert it.  I know, lots of Yes-Buts arise, but see if you can Imagine swapping Yes-Ands into each of those places instead.  It’s “just your Imagination” after all, so you can do anything you want, right?

If you can’t do anything you want in your Imagination, there’s no better time than the Present to seriously Ask yourself Why Am I So Limited?  Until you Straighten that out, you’re part of the Problem, not part of the Solution.

And speaking of “the Problem,” what’s all this Resistance about, to what we know we have to do?  Are those people Evil, or just so Greedy and Narcissistic and Short-Sighted that they think they need to Hoard as much as they can while they still can, so they have enough to Bribe Noah to let them on the Ark when the final Showdown arrives?  Well, whenever we catch ourself thinking about “those people,” we know we’re Projecting another Cyst of Negativity from the Unconscious.  “Those people” are nothing more than a Hologram of our Failure to Imagine a Fully Collaborative, Fully Cooperative, and Fully Conscious – 5D – Universe.

The third Suggestion is that we need to be Fully Present and Fully Compassionate with our Karma.

Asteroid Karma Conjoins Chiron in the Uranus Station chart.  Asteroid Karma is about our Karma.  Chiron is about Despair and Miracles.  We escape Despair using Self-Empathy, such as Poor-Sweethearting ourself.  Karma-Chiron Squares Aletheia-Pholus-Quaoar.  That is, Failing to Realize that we actually have a Choice (Moira), and falling into Despair about our “Fate” (Karma-Chiron) will doom the whole Planet.  And the worst kind of Despair is Unconscious Despair, namely the Belief that What We Need is beyond the realm of Possibility.

Here’s the chart…
