2020 Part 3

July 15, 2019

Bob in Australia writes…

“Preparedness it would seem is the key to cope with the impending and already occurring upheaval caused by the inevitable collapse and/or major re-adjustment of our global economic system as already foreseen by current and future Astrological energies and which is now being confirmed by mainstream 3D opinion.  Glimpses are appearing as evidenced by this blog of alternative path(s) to this disaster and on a collective level awareness of how to take advantage of this new paradigm will occur en-masse as individuals.

“We simply do not know how many individuals globally have this same belief and to what effect and to paraphrase this blog ‘this hidden genius and unlimited potential’ will have in a collective 5D fashion.  For mine I am also extremely curious about how it will also effect the other impending crisis, global warming!  Perhaps some interpretation of the most salient Sabian symbols of this upcoming Astrological energy might give us a clue?”

The upcoming Full Moon (which I’ll write about in more detail soon) features an Epiphany Configuration (Mjölnir) to the symbol for Self-Sovereignty (Lilith) that implies a Rebirth of our Essence (from Haumea Square Sun).  To imagine that World Population, or even Aunt Sally, needs to Shift before we can (or Want to) Shift is not a Self-Sovereign posture.  Yes, We Are All One, but that can also be read as We Are Alone, and it’s Both/And.  One way, perhaps the only way, to get beyond the Control Issues that any and all Egos have, and to also Respect Free Will, is to Lead by Example.  

Yes, I think we need to see both Climate Change and the presumed pending Collapse of the still-Colonial Economic and Financial and Political “Order” (which is very much a Reflection of the state of 3D Huperity), as symptoms of the same Underlying Energy.  The End of the Patriarchy is another symptom.  Mother Earth Claiming Her Own Sovereignty is one name that is often used for the Underlying Energy, but even that may be “just” a Projection of our Frustration over the growing chasm between what our Hearts know to be Possible and what our Senses see happening.  Maybe that is the Underlying Energy Shift.  Or the budding Age of Aquarius, with it’s Sympathy and Understanding, Harmony and Trust Abounding.

We can have Images of what the Earth “splitting in two” (or more) may look like, but we have no way of knowing what’s Metaphor and what’s not.  In fact, to assume It’s All Metaphor is probably the best course, even if that may Terrify parts of our Ego.  Or maybe because that may Terra-fy parts of our Ego – help Ego Recognize that the Ground of Life-the-Universe-and-Everything is Energy and Consciousness.  Matter may not be Illusion in all senses of the word, but it can certainly Transform in the blink of an eye – all we have to do is Change our Perspective.  And that’s true without even leaving Isaac Newton’s World.

We’re still looking at the Unfolding of 2012’s Uranus Square Pluto – being Challenged by the Compulsion to Embrace our Soul as Self.  Uranus is now Waxing Biseptile to Pluto.  The “Bi” part is the Second Harmonic, the Priestess, Guardian of the Rules.  The Septile part is about Timing.  So yes, it’s Time for the Rules to Change, and with Uranus in Taurus it’s how the Rules interact with Hardcopy Reality that are up for Revision.  The Sabian Symbol for this Uranus-Pluto Cycle is “A Ouija Board.”  It wouldn’t hurt to review the Initiation chart, which I’ll do when I get time.  The 1965 Initiation Opposed Chiron, Master of Perspective Changes.  On Roke that would be the Master Patterner.

But by far the Most Important Thing is that we, as much as we can, Let Go of Mechanisms and Focus our Attention on Outcomes

Unless we’re Rube Goldberg hisself, it’s a lot easier to be Serious about Imagining Outcomes we’ve yet to Experience in our Current Lifetime, than it is to Seriously Imagine Mechanisms that we haven’t Encountered.  To Imagine that we, with such Finite Senses, Understand how Infinite “Reality” works is pure Hubris, even if we include our Limitless Intuition.  Yet we were – are – so thoroughly Programmed to Believe that it works through Cause and Effect, that thinking a sentence that doesn’t involve Cause and Effect is very difficult.  Small Wonder that we disavow Miracles so thoroughly that we often don’t even Believe our Ouija Boards.

Manifesting in 3D and 5D

January 28, 2019

Manifesting in 5D is all about Cooperation and Collaboration and Receiving.  In 3D it’s more about Effort and Persistence and “Winning.”  Here’s an example…

We’ve spoken of the Sidhe, the True “Fairies” of Irish folklore (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/sidhe/) already, as I was introduced to them in a Fairy Study Circle created by Michael Polarski, of Fairy and Human Relations Congress Fame – which we’ve also spoken of (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/08/06/quantum-jump-27-the-real-thing-vii/).  So I jumped at the chance when Jeremy Berg, a major Sidhe collaborator…

…came to a nearby town to present a workshop.  I was a little surprised at the time by how quickly I Responded, since the town was far enough away that I would normally have had to work fairly hard to convince myself to make the trip.

In a completely unconnected process, the week before Jeremy’s workshop, one of my clients asked me to attend an all-day meeting being held the day before the workshop.  My client’s meeting was to occur in another town only a few miles from the workshop, and they offered to provide lodging before and after the meeting.

Tremendous stroke of luck, as it meant that I didn’t have to get up before dawn to travel to either!  As my client was making these arrangements, they suggested I bring my wife and have a “second honeymoon.”  Well, unbeknownst to my client, it turned out that the meeting was happening in the same hotel that our wedding reception had been held in years before!  Another remarkable coincidence – or remarkable Intuition on the part of my client.

So, we went to the meeting and the workshop, and assisting Jeremy in the workshop, unbeknownst to me when I signed up, was a friend, remarkable person, and fabulous Irish Harpist, Peter Berry (https://manufacturing.dustystrings.com/blog/dusty-harp-001-interview-peter-berry).  Well, Peter, with his Harp and his incredible Bardic Genius for Story, was the officiant who married us!

Not knowing these remarkable “coincidences,” Jeremy sketched out the Sidhe way of relating to their Reality, which sounded a lot like what we might Call 5D Manifesting, where we’re in Cooperation and Collaboration with the Energies and Forces around us.  That’s one of the fundamental purposes for this blog, hoping to help us understand the Forces swirling around us at any given time, so we can more Easily Cooperate and Collaborate.

I don’t normally get this personal in this blog, but the Story is too “coincidental” to resist telling.  Back in 2012, when the World As We Know It was Ending, we spoke a lot about how a New Energy Manifests at the Beginning of a Cycle between two planets, when a faster planet passes a slower one, and the slower (more Powerful) planet Initiates the faster one, or provides Shaktipat so that the faster planet can serve to Implement the Program of the slower one.

After the Initiation – when the New Energy is Prominent, the New Energy moves underground, as the Masters of the Old Obsolete Energy work to save their Investments by Forcing the Old Energy to appear to still be Working.  If we understand these Cycles, and know where we are in which Cycles, we can ignore the Old-Energy-serving headlines, we can “no longer lend our Strength to that which we wish to be Free From” (as Jewel puts it), and put our Efforts into helping the New Energy take hold.

The New Energy comes into its own when the faster planet is three Signs ahead of (“Waxing Square to”) the slower planet.  In 2012 Uranus Waxed Square to Pluto, finally bringing the Energy of the 1960s (when Pluto Initiated Uranus) out into the mainstream.  We Intuit the nature of a Cycle first by the nature of the planets involved, then by the Sabian Symbol of the Degree in which the Initiation occurred, and third by the Birth chart of the Initiation.

One meaning for Pluto is Transformation, or Trance Re-Formation, and another is Compulsion.  The interpretation we use for Uranus is the Individual Soul.  So the 150-year-long Uranus-Pluto Cycle is about a Compulsion to Transform our Lives so that our Ego Identifies more with our Soul or Mission.  You’ll notice that we talk about that quite a bit, especially now that Uranus is Edging into Taurus (Soul Merging with Flesh), which it does again in about six weeks.

The Sabian Symbol for the Pluto-Uranus Initiation was “A Ouija Board” – Opening up to the Mysterious.  The chart of the Initiation is quite remarkable (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/05/29/yintegrity-in-public/).

So I was thinking last week about how I should be giving examples of the Waxing Square stage of Cycles, where the New Energy is coming out of the Closet, and see if we can Relate that to the Initiation, which we more often write about.  So this evening I looked to see which Cycles were at the Waxing Square, that we could write about, and lo, Mars was Waxing Square to Saturn just last week, on 21 January.

So, when was the Initiation, and what did we write about it?  I’m not trying to make this a test or testament about these methods, as I didn’t invent them – blame Dane Rudhyar for that – because, after having seen these methods work over the last half-century, I know that if I don’t understand, it’s because there’s New Information coming into my Consciousness, and it’d Behoove me to Pay Attention!

We Interpret Saturn as “The Most Important Thing” or the First Priority, and Mars as Action.  So the Mars-Saturn Cycle would be about how well we Prioritize our Actions, and whether they Further our Goals.  We have the admitted Bias that we Believe our Goals (at least while Uranus is as Lit Up as it has been) should be devoted to Opening our Ego to Adapt to Knowing and Surrendering to our Soul.

So if we go back to 2 April 2018 to find the Saturn-Mars Initiation, we find this (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/04/01/surviving-2/)…

If we were examining Projects we’re beginning now (this Rebirth, for example), and hence using larger Sensitivities, we’d see that the Saturn-Mars Initiation is also Merged with the Quaoar and Pholus Stations.

“This means that The Most Important Thing (Saturn) is to Act (Mars) to Be Responsive to our Survival Instincts, and by extension to our Hidden Genius.  The Saturn-Mars Initiation occurs on 2 April (9am PDT) at 9 Capricorn, ‘An Angel carrying a harp.’  This begins a two-year Cycle where this Angel will facilitate our Actions when they Align with Being Responsive to our Survival and that of our Unique Genius.”

“An Angel carrying a harp!”  And of course, the stated Reason that the Sidhe are Approaching our Dimension now is because they sense that we’re about to Commit Cultural and Environmental Suicide, and they’d like to help us Choose to Avoid such a “Fate,” partly because they Live in a Parallel Dimension on the same Planet, and our Suicide will impact them as well.  Continuing with our April quote…

“So ‘you who philosophize Disgrace and criticize all Fears, take the rag away from your face, cuz now ain’t the Time for your Tears,’ as Bobby D put it.  God/Goddess is on our side after all.  It’s been a tough week, but the prognosis is good.

“You also got cheated out of a readable chart of the Healing Abuse Full Moon (see penultimate post) with its Decisions-about-Abuse-and-Privilege Paradox School, in the heavy lines…

The light lines show that the impending Saturn-Mars Initiation T-Squares the Full Moon, but Trine-Bridges the Decisions-about-Abuse-and-Privilege central axis of the Yin Gate.  Which is to say that if we Act to Be Responsive to our Survival Instincts, and by extension to our Hidden Genius, it will Heal our Abuse Histories Paradoxically. 

“Which is good, because it’s going to be a lot easier to Act-to-Be-Responsive-to-our-Survival-Instincts than it would be to Act-to-Heal-our-Abuse-Histories, for the reasons we explained in the penultimate Healing Abuse Full Moon post.  Penultimate means the post before the previous one.  It usually means next-to-the-last, but in this case, same diff, as the last post is the one before this one.”

We didn’t discuss, at least in that post, the Yin Gate with its emphasis on the Orcus-Nessus Opposition as the Primary Paradox governing the Cycle.  Orcus symbolizes the Oaths, Promises, and Commitments that are Forgotten and become Obsolete Habits, aka Karma, and Nessus symbolizes Abuse and it’s flip side, Privilege.  One very common sort of Paradox is the Healing Crisis, where an Affliction gets worse after a Healing before it gets better, and may continue to get worse if we Distrust the Medicine, because our Afflictions are continuing Mirrors for our Attitudes.

Here in the USofA we’re in the role of the Battered Woman, where our Oaths to Support Nation and Authority, and to curry favor from Wealth, are being tested by the fact that Authority and Wealth have been Abusing their Privilege and in the process Abusing Us – and we’re Noticing!  The two diagonals of the Yin Gate (the blue Rectangle) are the Journey from Karma to Mission, including the “fact” that our Karma hides the tools we need to Reach our Mission (the Nodal Axis), and Noticing that we need to Trust our Instincts about Ending Obsolete TimeLines (Sun-Mercury Opposite Moon-Eurydike-Atropos).

My own Obsolete TimeLine that’s being Ended is my Programmed Resistance to Accepting the HardCopy Reality of the Subtle Realms and Other Dimensions, where the Energies we need to Cooperate and Collaborate and Conspire with are Swirling, in and out of our own Dimension.  Even though I’m Passionate about Reanimating the World and All of its Beings, Sentient and Otherwise (if there is such a thing as an Other-than-Sentient Entity), how much do I Allow it to interpenetrate my Life, Moment-to-Moment?

Earlier in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/04/01/surviving-2/, we point out that the Saturn-Mars Initiation is also Merged with (Conjoins) the Belief-Responsibility-Survival (Vesta-Pholus-Quaoar) Stellium, telling us that in order to Act to Support the Most Important Thing, Respond to our Survival Instincts, and Allow the Angel’s Harp to Enchant us into Collaboration and Cooperation with the Energies Swirling around us, we need to Allow our Beliefs to Shift.

I have not been Working to Shift my Beliefs; I’ve been Reading and Learning and Watching them Shift on their own. If we look at the second chart in https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2018/04/01/surviving-2/, we see that the Belief-Responsibility-Survival-Action Challenge (the red triangle or T-Square) is Self-Resolving (the blue cat’s cradle across from it the Diamond Star created by Varuna and Pallas), and that the Belief-Responsibility-Survival-Action Challenge itself is actually between our Ability to Manifest (Makemake) and our Victimhood or Attitudinal Adeptness (Chiron).

Now, while all that well describes the Roots of the Cycle, we want to Recognize that it’s Evolving.  If we look at the chart of the Waxing Square itself, which is almost identical to the Sappho-Station (Self-Love) and Grand Octile (Epiphanies) Total-Lunar-Eclipse (Erasing our Karma and Enhancing our Vitality) charts in the Self-Judgment and Self-Love series (the previous posts), we see that our Understanding of the Most Important Actions for us to take (the Mars-Saturn T-Square) is being Transmogrified (Bee-Zed) by our New Commitment to Self-Sovereignty (Hylonome) and our Learning that we overcome our “Fate” by simply Choosing an Alternative (asteroid Moira).

All of which leads us to https://www.instagram.com/p/Bs__j4Zgw8v/.

Yang Feminine I

December 13, 2017

A reader has asked us to review the possible astrological motives behind the current, rather amazing, example of a Tipping Point, where people are starting in some cases to Pay Attention and even Respond when women are assaulted – of which Alabama’s Choice might be an example.  This is a Big Question, and it will take me a long while to give it the Attention it deserves, but I’ve uncovered a few clues so far, so I’ll start what will undoubtedly end up being a looong series…

My first guess would be the Uranus-Pluto Cycle that was Initiated in 1965, because it’s one of the bigger (ie, longer) Cycles that’s begun in “our” era.  Pluto is about major Changes of Cultural Winds (equating to Jung’s “Universal” Unconscious, which we’re demoting to encompass not the Universe or even the Galaxy, but “only” our Solar System).  We could go on at length about Pluto’s role as Guardian of our known Solar System, until its demotion – Sedna plays that role now.  Pluto Protected Human Consciousness from having to deal with Reality, and played the role of a movie projector, projecting the Dominant Paradigm onto the Hologram we mistake for Hardcopy Reality.

It was the Waxing Square of the Uranus-Pluto Cycle – when the Cycle’s Energy emerges from gestation and becomes “Permanent,” or at least Pervasive – that ushered us through the whole 2012 Transformation.  The word Transformation or TranceFormation – Formation of a (New) Trance, a new movie in the projector – is in my humble opinion the best single keyword to characterize Pluto.  The second-best keyword is “Mandatory” – it’s usually futile to Resist Pluto’s Transformations, though they can be adapted within Limits.  So to me the Uranus-Pluto Cycle Increases the degree to which the Soul Self insists on its right to partner with the Ego, as its Supervisor.

I don’t regard Slavery as a natural unfolding of the Soul Self, except of course as a Heuristic or Learning Exercise.  So any new Uranus-Pluto Cycle is going to make it more difficult to keep enslaving half the People.  Also, because Emotion is more often a carrier of Intuition than Intellect, and because Women for one reason or another are likely to have more dexterity with Emotion than men, Women tend to be more Intuitive, at least for now.  That is, they have better access to Information that is usually hidden from the Intellect.  Hence they are likely to be more Conscious.

So it’s not like Women became Conscious starting in 1965.  There have been untold Uranus-Pluto Cycles prior to this one.  But 1965 would be expected to see a Transformation of Consciousness of our Soul Self, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see such a Transformation led by Women.  And of course we did see just that; there was huge surge in “Feminism” or Respect for the Sovereignty and Leadership of Women, in the 1960s.  Sensitive people would have begun Feeling the 1965 Uranus-Pluto Initiation several years prior to the Exact Conjunction, so we don’t expect a sudden Transition.

The current Uranus-Pluto Cycle began at 18 of Virgo, “A Ouija Board” – in other words, forget Logic and Proportion and Pay Attention to the Red Queen.  Gracie’s White Rabbit was released by Jefferson Airplane in 1967, and was certainly a very apt anthem for the Times (Zeitgeist is another good keyword for Pluto).  She wrote it for her previous band in 1965-66.  Close your eyes and let the Ouija Board guide your fingers – Intuition.  We could go into the Uranus-Pluto Initiation chart at length – it’s Fascinating – and I hope to find time to do just that.

But let’s shift our Attention to the Present for a minute, as that’s where the Tipping Point seems to have occurred (not that there won’t be a lashback or two).  Where is the Uranus-Pluto Cycle now?  They’re 107 Degrees apart.  Just beyond a Biseptile.  The Septile series or Seventh Harmonic is about Timing.  Isn’t that a Coincidence.  Of course it’s not an exact Biseptile.  So what else do we have?

Let’s look at 5 October 2017, the day the New York Times published their expose about Mr. Weinstein.  That was certainly a significant moment, and in hindsight (at least until someone more prominent is impeached) an excellent candidate for the Tipping Point itself.  Anything relevant going on then (I haven’t looked at Mr. Weinstein’s chart yet, because we want to focus on the impact on the Planet, not on him)?

Well, a new Venus-Mars Cycle was Initiated on 5 October.  When we’re talking about sexual and social intercourse, Venus-Mars is certainly where we’d look first.  We looked at Uranus-Pluto first because the Venus-Mars Cycle is only about 18 months or so, and we wanted to look at a longer Cycle.  So, where was the Venus-Mars Initiation?  Duh, 20 Virgo!  Only two Degrees from the 1965 Uranus-Pluto Initiation, the environs of which will remain a “hot spot” on the Zodiac till we start the next Uranus-Pluto Cycle in 2150. 

Virgo 20 is “A caravan of cars headed to the West Coast.”  Well, that was certainly happening in 1965 and thereabouts, with flowers in their hair.  How do we relate it to Mr. Weinstein and the Tipping Point for assault on Women?  Elsie read these Symbols in 1925 (in San Diego), so a caravan of cars would not have been a common occurrence yet.  But on long trips cars may have been likely to travel in caravans, as auto services would have been scarce.  It wasn’t until twenty years later, after World War II, that people flooded to Southern California, after seeing what a paradise it was while they were stationed on the edge of the Pacific Front.  So these people (or cars) were harbingers.

Is it a coincidence that the West Coast is burning up as we move through this Tipping Point about Respect for Women?  Collapse of an Olde Order – Death by Fire – would be an appropriate interpretation.  If you follow the Sun, the West Coast is as far as you can go without a boat; darkness follows.  The Venus-Mars Cycle is really about how our Inner Female and Inner Male are getting along with each other; the sexual stuff is just a Mirror.  So we have the Spirit (Fire) of an Olde Order descending into Darkness, and a caravan coming to Celebrate a whole new level of Integration, to witness the Heiros Gammos that’s underway.  Heiros Gammos is certainly an excellent Initiation into 5D Reality.

The only major Angle that the Venus-Mars Initiation made was a Square (Challenge) to Asbolus – which symbolizes Intuition.

Anything else happening on 5 October?  Yes, another Initiation, of Hopi by Haumea – Rebirth of Respect for All Things.  I’m not sure we need to even say more about that.  But for the record, it occurred at 25 Libra, “The sight of an autumn leaf brings to a pilgrim the sudden revelation of the mystery of life and death.”  Suggesting that this is no ordinary Rebirth, but an Enlightenment.  This Initiation Opposes Uranus-Eris (Revelation of the Soul’s Truth) and is Squared by Nemesis (Ego Death). 

Bingo.  We could go on, and as time allows we will.  We could sleuth out the other 99 Monkeys.  But we should remember that any chart speaks with many voices, most of which Harmonize.  For instance, on 5 October OR10 (Intrusion of Memories into Consciousness) and Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) were only two Degrees apart.  Their Initiation occurred a while back, and they’ve been Dancing ever since; it will be interesting to see what manifested into “Real” Life on or about their Initiation date.

There are a number of other Initiations in the neighborhood of 5 October – Pholus-Lilith (Taking Full Responsibility for Self-Sovereignty!), Quaoar-Lilith (Self-Sovereignty as Survival), Saturn-Lilith (Self-Sovereignty as The Most Important Thing), Ixion-Lilith (Honoring the Sovereignty of our Hidden Genius), all near the Galactic Center, as well as mutual Unions between Varuna (the Life Force), Aletheia (Truth), Ceres (Sustainability), and Mnemosyne (Memory) on the Cusp of Leo (Self-Trust).  These suggest that Transition to the Yang Feminine is critical to our Survival, which is not very surprising at all.

Full Moon 29.11c Timing

November 27, 2016

Should anyone want to Learn or Interpret their Experience relative to the “Stars” or Time anything, the specific event runs something like this…

  • 29 November…
    • 4am PST – New Moon at 8 Sagittarius, “Within the depths of the Earth new elements are being formed: The alchemical fire which both purifies and transforms the very substance of huper inner life.
    • 5am PST – Juno Initiates Moon at 8 Sagittarius.
    • 9am PST – Nemesis Initiates Moon at 10 Sagittarius, “A theatrical representation of a golden-haired Goddess of Opportunity.
    • noon PST – Juno Initiates Sun at 8 Sagittarius.
  • 2 December 1pm – Nemesis Initiates Sun at 12 Sagittarius, A flag turns into an Eagle which turns into a Rooster saluting the Dawn.

Sagittarius 12 is the Degree of the Pluto-Chiron Initiation at the dawn of the current Century.  We can interpret Pluto-Chiron as “There Is No Other Option But Love,” the flag as nationalism and other group-Identification Archetypes (including Race and Patriarchy), the Eagle as being Forced to adopt a wider viewpoint, and the Rooster as Herald of the Light.  

You could Interpret the Eagle/Rooster trigger as a nucular holocaust (which would make a very bright Light) or you could Intend that the triggers are a lot more peaceful.  I’m reminded of the sudden and sharp transition from flag to Eagle/Banty Rooster created by the Kent State murders, a four-Person Human Sacrifice.  Noble and Skillful Souls.

The Chiron-Pluto Cycle is currently two elevenths of the way around the Loop.  The Eleventh Harmonic is about Self-Confidence – “the beauty that we all possess  in our gifts, talents, and resources which can quell the beasts or demons within our nature” – Angeles Arrien, Tarot Handbook, p.66.  A hint about the Recovery of our Abandoned Genius.  We won’t get to the Waxing Square, when the Energy breaks out into the Open – or into the Light, until 2028.  

The second step in the eleven-step march around the Zodiac is about Ritual – the Power of Repetition.  We could effectively tag it as “Fake it (Self-Confidence) till you Make it.”  If we’re Paying Attention Lovingly, each time we Fake it we’ll receive important Information about the Obstacles between us and True Self-Trust.  With Karma Dead, this could lead very rapidly to True Self-Trust, a solid corollary to our recently-Reborn and about-to-Deepen Self-Love.

The Energy of a New Cycle is evident around its Initiation, then goes Underground till the Waxing Square, at which point it begins to pervade the mainstream.  Notice that Equal Rights for Minorities and Women was prominent around the Pluto-Uranus Initiation in the 1960s, and now that we’re past the 2012-2015 Uranus-Pluto Waxing Square, Equal Rights are very much under attack, just when they should be breaking out into the Light.  

In my neighborhood it was the High School students who spontaneously and vigorously marched to object to the apparent return to institutionalized Racism and Misogyny.  How the Reaction and Response to this evolves will be telling. 

We should be able to detect the Energy of the Juno-Moon/Sun and Nemesis-Moon/Sun Cycles over the next few days.  The Juno Cycles are about Emergence of the Unrecognized, and the Nemesis Cycles about the Appearance of Opportunity, with an emphasis on Appearance; it’s interesting that the Goddess was blond.  Remember that the Underlying December Energy is about Learning by Observing without Judgment or Conclusion.

The Appearance of Opportunity suggests that we take advantage of it while remaining skeptical, without putting all of our eggs in the basket.  Saturn (which would suggest Concentration on the Best Option) is not Strongly Lit Up here, so we can safely Hedge.  Over the next week, keep an eye out for anything you don’t Recognize, particularly an Opportunity that you wouldn’t otherwise Recognize.  Invest in it, but don’t bet the ranch.

The Moon-Juno and Moon-Nemesis Cycles will be about the immediate Emotional Impact of these Circumstances.  The Cycles hit their Waxing Squares on 7 December.  Dip a toe into your Unexpected Opportunity this week, then stay alert next week for Confirmation that your hunch was right, or Suggestion that it needs adjustment.  Invest more into the Trend, with or without adjustment, next week.

While the Moon Cycles are short enough that it makes sense to combine the two, the Solar Cycles are longer.  By the time they get to their Waxing Squares next April, they’ll be two weeks apart, the Sun-Juno Emergence Cycle Opening in the first week, and the Sun-Nemesis Opportunity Cycle Leafing Out in the third week of April.  The Solar Cycles are more substantial, so you’ll want more evidence than your Instincts will deliver.  Plan to carefully review your Investments in April, and bail out if the Trends aren’t bending your way.

Chaos 1

November 5, 2016

In our earlier post Rebirth of Genius, we talked about the Golden Rectangle that continues to Bless us.  A Golden Rectangle is very much Beneficent, though of course it includes a few Challenges – whenever we’re Graced with a Big Blessing, we face the Challenge of facing down our Resistance to Change and to the resulting Ego Death.  The Rectangle is Golden because it is structured using the Golden Angle that organizes Nature.

The four corners of the Golden Rectangle are

  • Dwarf planet Chaos – Unlimited Potential (with asteroid Veritas – Truth)
  • Ixion-Pholus – Being Fully Responsible to our Abandoned Genius (with Quaoar – Survival – nearby)
  • Sappho-Haumea – Rebirth into Self-Love
  • Uranus-Eris – Identifying with the Truth of the Soul Self (with asteroid Mnemosyne – Memory, and Ceres – Sustainability)

We’ve been working on our Yintegrity (Trusting our Intuition and Instincts) prominently for four years now, and in the background for the fifty years before that.  Doesn’t matter if you aren’t that old – we’re all working to Grow the Consciousness of the Species, so you were born into the process.  We’re now having a Big Rebirth of major portions of our Soul Self.

We’ve also been working for several years on our Unity with All Things, and the Mulifariousness that invariable accompanies it, as a herd of Centaurs and dwarf planets has migrated across the Galactic Center over the last several years.  Most prominently, Pholus, symbolizing Full Responsibility, remains, along with Ixion, which symbolizes Rejected Genius.

So we interpret the Golden Rectangle as bringing our Rejected Genius, the Star of our Soul Self, into our Heart where it can be Acknowledged, Embraced, and Expressed.  Lots of cosmic folks are Lighting Up the Golden Rectangle over the next several days as we approach the Full Moon.  We’ll talk about those soon, but first let’s let Michael Roads and Lilou Mace introduce the process…

Yintegrity in Public

May 29, 2016

A reader comments… 

“We agree that the current astrology is encouraging us all to increasing Yintegrity (love that my spellcheck knows that word and to even capitalize it!).  However, I’ve been reading tons of Brian Browne Walker’s I Ching and the entire premise of that ancient book is all about control in dealing with the exterior world.  Perhaps it’s just what I’m asking about these days, but every answer seems to be about non-action, and it feels like the I Ching’s recommendation is to Hide Truth More. 

“Now that interpretation by me could just be my Inner Child – having moved from shy, scared five year old to angry ‘I will cut your head off’ seven year old – sadly protesting ‘What’s the use of knowing Inner Truth if I can’t express it?’ but the balancing of Inner Truth and Outer Power in the World feels nearly contradictory.  That’s Either/Or I suppose.  Maybe it’s knowing your Inner Truth and then acting skillfully to achieve the results you want in the Outer World?  Rather than the interpretation of Stuffing My True Self?
 
“I’d really like you to say more about the Virgoan ‘Who, Me?’  I’m guessing that any time I say ‘I’d never do that!’ it’s a clue.  And believe me, I’ve encountered some very angry, vengeful Inner bits lately.  I am working hard to send Major Love Streams when I recognize them (either as Voices or in the Body), and generally they then fade, but it must be grooved neural pathways that keep lighting them up.”

  ♥    ♥    ♥    ♥    ♥    ♥    ♥  

Yintegrity and Expression

You bet.  The Yangtegrity Patriarchy is fading, but it’s still by far the dominant paradigm.  Yangtegrity, by the way, for newbies, means doing what you said you were going to do, while Yintegrity means doing what you Feel like doing, moment to moment – that is, Trusting your Instincts.  Yangtegrity does Plan-Execute, while Yintegrity does PIAVA-Change the Subject.  To Live Yintegrity in a Yangtegrity World, in general we need to minimize our Commitments, be willing to Renegotiate often, and to Make Amends when Renegotiation isn’t possible and the Relationship is Important.  

Scary, eh?  Stretching our Yintegrity is a huge Risk, and one we’ve been warned against since we were infants.  Many of us were programmed to control even our most basic bodily functions, and many of us are sick from doing it.  So yes, of course the Olde Ego is going to come up with every excuse it can – from ancient Fears to manifesting coaches and friends and books, to literally disease – to warn us away from Yintegrity.  

In my limited experience the I Ching is oriented toward “success,” which is an important term in the Competition playbook, so the I Ching may be, like Greek Mythology, a handbook for enlisting in the then-new Patriarchy.  It sounds like you have a lot more experience with it than I – do you think that may be relevant?  If so, then yes, it would not encourage Yintegrity, it would more likely encourage social and economic success over Self-Trust.  Even its covert emphasis on morality is an Idealism, a spinoff of the Patriarchal mindset.

I’m definitely not advocating that we alienate a lot of people with our version of “Radical Honesty,” by any means.  The bottom line about removing our Masks is about getting Honest with Ourself.  So, for instance, if there’s a particular element of Pleasing that we’re programmed to perform for “success,” which creates a Reaction within our own Psyche – for instance, one of our Epiphanies might be to connect those headaches or indigestion that we get, with choosing to overlook the behavior of a particular client or co-worker or partner, which behavior we’d never tolerate in a close friend – then we might “Wonder how we can Change our Response to that person to eliminate the negative personal consequences, without losing an account or a job or a partnership.”

That’s a very complex sentence, but it says what I want it to say, so let me re-say it.  Suppose we get headaches or indigestion once in while.  And suppose we have a client or co-worker or partner whose behavior we tolerate in order not to rock the boat, but whose behavior we would never tolerate from a close friend.  And suppose one day we notice that there’s a connection here – our headaches or indigestion are often preceded by interactions with this client or co-worker or partner, or initiated by thoughts about these interactions.  

That would be the sort of Epiphany that wouldn’t surprise us here in this astrological province.  In Response to our Epiphany we might “Wonder how we can Change our Response to that person to eliminate the negative personal consequences, without alienating the person.”  Our interactions with people, or rather, the interactions between our Archetypes or Masks and their Archetypes or Masks, can literally make us sick.  But if we can step outside the Archetype we can immediately see that there are a million ways to Change the dynamics of any relationship that are a lot easier than “Just get on the bus, Gus.”

Before we can step outside the Mask, we need to become Conscious that we’re under the Spell (or Curse) of the Archetype.  A Pluto Mjolnir under an Eris-Uranus Initiation sets up very fertile conditions for that sort of Insight, especially with Nessus (Abuse/Privilege) and OR10 (Upwellings from the Deeps) Initiating Pallas (Boundaries).  Wherever in our Lives we don’t Live in constant Ecstasy, that’s an neon candidate for a PIAVA like “I Wonder what sort of Archetype or Mask I’m not Conscious of here,” or “Ganeshi, please remove all Obstacles to complete Freedom of Action for me around this.”  

I don’t expect to wake up in a Yintegrity World in mid-June.  I’ll be delighted if I’m living my own Yintegrity ten percent more of the time, and that my close relationships have increased in Yintegrity.  Once we replace Money with Community again (which the next four years of hard times may promote, and which the end of the Industrial Age may permit), then we’ll find that Yintegrity has begun to spread into what under Yangtegrity we consider “Livelihood.”  Working on a Community task because it promotes the “wealth” of the whole Community may Feel a lot more Yintegrous than working for Money.

The breaking up of Society into opposing rhetorical armies, and the Internet’s role in it, which we usually see as a product of the Polarization in the 1/1/2000 chart, is actually a step toward social Yintegrity.  We just haven’t done it long enough yet to notice that while someone might share my Reaction to The Donald, they definitely don’t share my Reactions to Freedom of Speech or Infidelity or Broccoli or Freedom to Exploit or Immigration or Uncle Milty or Abhortion or Capitalism or Glyphosate or the Color Puce or the Patriarchy.  

Once we figure out that we actually have no control over other people’s Reactions to us, we suddenly get Permission to just be Effortlessly Honest.  We’re able to maintain the illusion that we can successfully manipulate other people’s Reactions only because they were programmed in the same language that we were programmed in.  When we move beyond Rhetoric to Communication, the World Changes.  Much of our Lives will still run on Rhetoric, because it’s so much more efficient, but without the Masks we can be a lot more flexible.

The I Ching dates from the first several centuries of the third Millennium behind us, in the last half of the Age of Aries – the Age of Heroes.   I doubt that we can date the Patriarchy to this era; more likely we can date the advent of written justifications for the Patriarchy to this era.  Some folks assume the Patriarchy arose as a result of Agriculture, because it allowed the accumulation of surpluses and hence Greed and Inequality.  That would date it as far back as the Age of Leo or before, though it may have taken a millennium or two to develop.  Following Icke and Sitchin, we could make a case for the Anunnaki fostering the birth of the Patriarchy in its current form at the beginning of the Age of Aries.

The Age of Heroes would certainly have been a fertile time for Patriarchy to bloom.  The quarter-millennium around the development of the I Ching was a very busy time.  It would have been between the Phitile and the Waning Square of the Age of Aries, the time of its culmination.  Confucius, Lao Tzu, Zarathustra, Gautama Buddha, and Homer (author or transcriber of the most germinal of the Greek Myths about the defeat of the Matriarchy) all lived in this era, and the earliest version of the Old Testament was written.  

Between 575 and 577 BCE, a Triple Initiation occurred, between Pluto, Neptune, and Uranus.  That would have symbolized a huge shift in the Unconscious Psyche of Huperity, hence the birth of all the Patriarchal heroes.  

The three Initiations occurred in 10-15 Taurus…

  • Pluto Initiated Neptune in 577 BCE at 10 Taurus, “A Red Cross nurse.”
  • Pluto Initiated Uranus in 576 BCE at 12 Taurus, “A young couple window-shopping.
  • Neptune Initiated Uranus in 575 BCE at 15 Taurus, “Head covered with a rakish silk hat, muffled against the cold, a man braves a storm: The courage needed to meet the crises precipitated by social ambition.

The Neptune-Uranus (relationship of collective to individual) symbol reeks of Inequality; Pluto-Neptune’s (transformation of culture) nurse, while having perhaps some autonomy working for the Red Cross, would in general be constrained by their hierarchical superior, the doctor; Pluto-Uranus (transformation of the individual) is about material acquisitiveness that probably serves the Individuals more than their Community. 

A Triple Initiation of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto will occurs every 4,000 years or so, the next one occurring around 3370, in Gemini, in the Age of Aquarius.  Pluto has an eliptical orbit, so the span would vary.

Yintegrity and “Who, Me?”

Yes, any comment with an “I” or “me” in it is a doorway to Consciousness of our Masks.  

  • I’d never do that!
  • I’m one of those people who…
  • I hate it when…
  • How could they do that to me!
  • I’d do anything for Love, but I won’t do that!

The only exception might be “I Feel <adverb>, or other statements about the present moment.  And of course any “I sometimes…” statements.  Anytime you’re labeling or implying that you or someone else is always a certain way, you’re looking at a Mask.

Remember though that Patterns – Habits – make Life possible.  If we had to stop and think about which muscle to contract and which one to extend every time we needed to raise a hand to scratch our nose, we wouldn’t get much done.  Some of us may have experienced something on that order while stoned – it makes you appreciate programming.  It’s when one program always fires, or a program fires inappropriately, that we get in trouble.  

Like that co-worker or client or partner that “makes us sick.”  We always have an infinite number of options in the Present Moment; it’s when we aren’t in the Present Moment that we know we’re stuck in an Archetype.  How can we recognize this?  Well, any time we don’t have an infinite number of options, we’re not Present.  So if we’re stewing about something, without imagining a hundred different alternative ways we could have responded, we just PIAVA, “I Wonder why I feel Limited here.”  

Another Busy Weekend

April 14, 2016

We have dedicated our Lives to suppressing certain Emotions and Memories and even Thoughts, and for good reason.  They would Overwhelm us, and we have More Important things to do.  Till now.

Thing is, those Emotions and Memories and Thoughts are the doorways to Healing our Limiting Beliefs, making it Safe to Remove our remaining Masks, eliminating Self-Sabotage, uncorking our Forbidden Genius, and to painlessly achieving the Yintegrity and Self-Sovereignty that we so crave, but which we hold back from because we fear it would so Disrupt our Lives and the Lives of those we Love and Depend upon.  That sentence was not approved by the FDA, but I believe it’s True.  And it may even positively impact our Physical Health.

The Universe will bring these Emotions and Memories and Thoughts to us in early June, and the Universe has been, and continues to, give us Opportunities to get a head start.  And every early Opportunity we take advantage of will make June less painful.  If we’re still in Resistance to these Emotions and Memories and Thoughts in June, the process could well be painful.  The Universe is our friend, if we Learn to listen to Her.

As you probably know by now, Eris (Truthtelling) Initiates Uranus (Our Connection to Our Individual Soul) in early June.   We expect this to do a pretty good job of finishing up the Yintegrity work we’ve been doing since 2012.  Well, let’s put it this way – late May and early June will be the Can-Opener phase of this Initiation.  The Initiation occurs at 24 Aries, “Blown inward by the wind, the curtains of an open window take the shape of a cornucopia: Openness to the influx of spiritual energies.

When an Angle between two planets repeats, as is usually the case with outer planets, the first event always catches us off guard.  The last time this event occurred was in 1926, so very few of us have Experienced it in our current Lifetime.  If you know someone in their 90s who’s freaking out, this is probably why.  The less Experience we have with an Energy, the more likely it is to catch us off guard.  Forewarned is forearmed, however, so even if we’re off guard, knowing in general what the Energy is about can help us make sense out of what’s happening, and can help us step out of the Victim Modality we’d otherwise be in.

Let’s take what we hope will be an extreme example – suppose we were sexually abused as a child.  We don’t remember it, we only notice that in some situations we feel Unsafe or Angry or Scared, or maybe we’re uncomfortable with Intimacy.  If those Memories pop up in late May or early June, we’re going to Regress to the age when the abuse occurred, and to the Skillset and Boundaries that we had – or more accurately didn’t have – at that age.  Victim Modality is a foregone conclusion, most especially if those Memories arise as a result of some similar-feeling Unsafety in the then-Present Moment.

If we are somehow reminded that there is likely to be a “100-year” Regression (a Regression on such a scale that it occurs only once in a century) going on, we’re still going to be caught off guard, but we’re likely to be able to Recover our Present-Moment Skillsets much sooner than if we didn’t get the memo, or as the case may be, the blog post.

We’ve talked before about “Sensitivity” – how Sensitive we are to an astrological event, something astrologers can “Orb,” and I sometimes call “Slop.”  When an event is pending, most folks can certainly begin feeling it when it comes within one Degree of being exact.  Of course the Muggles will be in Denial, finding all manner of excuses, thinking it’s Heartburn.  The more Sensitive among us will begin feeling an event when it comes within three Degrees.  The most Sensitive of us will feel it sooner than that.

The Eris-Uranus Initiation reaches one Degree of Sensitivity in Mid-May.  It reached three Degrees of Sensitivity in late March.  Most folks who read this are likely to be at least three-Degrees Sensitive, so most of us are already Feeling it.  We Feel it through pressure to stop hiding or covering up parts of ourself that we’ve thought were less attractive or less Skillful.  Through Vulnerability.  Through Epiphanies about where we’ve been seeing through a glass darkly.  Through old Identities and Ego-Masks and Archetypes that we’re outgrowing.  Through a Desire to stop “Playing Games.”

An Initiation is a Conjunction.  When Angles repeat three times, as the Uranus-Eris Conjunction does, the first occurrence is a Can-Opener.  It opens a “Can of Worms” that we didn’t know was waiting for us.  The second and third occurrences are also Conjunctions, but they aren’t Initiations – only the first event is an Initiation.  We’re almost always in Victim Mode during a Can-Opener.

The second occurrence is an Exposition – the same Energy recurs front and center, but this time it seems to occur in slow motion (Retrograde), so we have a far better chance of understanding what’s happening “to us,” and consequently a far better chance of moving from Victim Mode to Master Mode.  In Victim Mode things happen to us, we have no Control over them.  In Master Mode, even if things happen to us, we have Skills to deal with them adequately.  

If we Master an Energy during the Exposition, then the third occurrence is a Confidence-Builder.  The Energy and Process recurs, but this time we’re ready and able to deal with it using our now-Present-Moment Skillsets, including those we learned in the previous two events, and we sail through it, feeling great about our new Expertise.  If we didn’t Master the Energy during the Exposition, then the third occurrence becomes another Opportunity, another Exposition.

The Uranus-Pluto Square recurred six times after the Can-Opener, giving us an indication of how Important the Universe thought it was for us to Recover our Yintegrity.  As if Pluto didn’t already symbolize what is Mandatory (Adaptable but not Avoidable).  The Can-Opener (June 2012) was followed by five Expositions (October 2012, May and November 2013, May and December 2014) before the Confidence-Builder (March 2015).  

The Uranus-Eris Exposition peaks in late September, while the Confidence-Builder occurs at the Ides of March next year.

In other words, as Uranus approaches Eris, that section of the Zodiac (now 21-23 Aries) gets very Hot.  The Sun (our Essence) crossed that section last weekend (April 9-11), while Varuna (Cellular Wisdom) and Chariklo (Beauty and Charm) were Stationary.  Venus (our Values) crosses that section two weekends hence, April 22-24.  In between, this coming weekend (April 16-17), Mars (Action) and Pluto (Inevitability) are Stationary (Strong).

There’s a joke about two Olde-Boy psychologists trading stories about “Freudian slips.”  One says his attention was drawn to the bosom of a ticket-seller on a recent trip to Pittsburgh, and he accidentally asked for a picket to his destination instead of a ticket.  The other says, “That’s nothing.  The other day I was having dinner with my mother and when I meant to ask her to pass the butter, what came out instead was ‘Mother, you’ve ruined my Life and I hate you!’ ”  

It would be really appropriate to Mars-Pluto – and fortuitous – if such Freudian slips came out this weekend, because they would constitute bright flashing lights pointing us toward clues about what hasn’t come to the surface of Consciousness yet.  Let your tongue be your Guide this weekend.  Same with “slip-ups” of any sort.  Make a wrong turn on the way to the store?  Where did you end up?  Drop a jar of Honey on a hard floor?  What do you suppose that might mean?  PIAVA the question.  Run into someone you haven’t seen in a long time?  A stranger strikes up an interesting conversation?  Pay Attention this weekend.

In particular, in addition to the Retrograde Stations of Pluto (5am PDT 17 April at 18 Capricorn) and Mars (1am PDT 18 April at 9 Sagittarius), Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) Initiates Mercury (Communication) at 3pm PDT 16 April, in 17 Taurus, “A symbolic battle between ‘swords’ and ‘torches’.”  Fascinating Symbol, as Swords symbolize mentality, as does Mercury.  That leaves Vesta standing in for Torches, indicating that…

Our Unconscious Limiting Beliefs are Burning their way out of Denial now, and will be for the next fifteen months, while this Mercury-Vesta Cycle moves through.  Just long enough to cover the Eris-Uranus Confidence-Builder.

We’ll talk more about the Vesta-Mercury Initiation – with its two Tricolors and Grand Trine – in the next installment, but note that while it’s occurring, the Sun is crossing the asteroid Mnemosyne – Memory.  What a jokester, this Universe!

Unmasked, Unlimited, and in the Mirror

“I remember the experience.  I was mentally present.  My soul did not leave my body in preparation for my inevitable death.
“I was relaxed.  I was comfortable.  There were no nerves.  The interview was just plain fun.
“You heard me.
“I had a flat-out, truly, really good time doing that interview.
“A nice big painting hung itself on the walls of my brain and it has stayed there.
“And it wasn’t just because Oprah was awesome.”

” ‘I’m extremely proud of you,’ she said quietly.  ‘You were joyless.  All you ever did was sleep.  I was worried.  Life is short.  Yours seemed really, really short.  And now you have completely transformed.  You’re alive.  You’re living.  Some people never do that.’ …
“And yet… here I am. … A more honest person – both with myself and with everyone else in my life.  More adventurous.  More open.  Braver.  And kinder.  To others.  But also to myself.  The cruelty with which I treated myself is no longer tolerated.”

Hylonome New Moon II

April 5, 2016

Our Chief Asteroid Officer has been busy with research, and uncovered another ‘roid Opposite Sappho and Squaring Vesta and Juno, completing the Grand Cross.  This creates an even greater Opportunity to Master our Limiting Beliefs.  Unfortunately (for our current Egos), the Opposing ‘roid is Hybris, another spelling for Hubris.  

I’ve been thinking that, in addition to our personal Adventures, June’s Eris-Uranus Initiation is likely to blow up our collective Denial about things like Global Warming, Functioning Economies, “News” Media, Corporate Ownership of Government (commonly referred to as “Globalization”), and the like.  

We could see Superstorms, Financial Collapse, Media Payola, and Political Scandals in June; that could certainly potentiate Ego Death and Mask Removal for many.  The Panama Papers…

http://billmoyers.com/story/the-panama-papers-what-theyre-all-about-2/

could be the start; it took a while for the Pentagon Papers to get rolling.  The Pentagon Papers took place at the Uranus-Pluto Conjunction, while the Snowdon Saga and the Panama Papers grace the Waxing Uranus-Pluto Square.

While we’ve emphasized Yintegrity as a primary characteristic of the Soul Self symbolized by Uranus, one could as well emphasize other elements of Individualism, such as Libertarianism.  We used to say that the Titans of Industry got rich through Exploitations that hadn’t been declared illegal yet.  Today it’s more modern to say that the 1% has gotten rich through Exploitations that have become legal again since 1980.  

The Libertarian call for the abolition of all “regulation” is nothing more than a call for the legalization of Exploitation without limit.  There are folks saying that Paul Ryan, who worships Libertarian Mythology, might be the beneficiary of a brokered Convention and final Republican candidate for the US Presidency.

The year 1980 is an interesting milestone.  It’s clearly the year – as President Reagan and The Baroness Thatcher ascended to Power – that the 1% began regaining political power from the middle class, and the year when the middle class began the decline from which it has yet to recover, if it does.  And 1980 was the first year of the transition from the Industrial Age to the Digital Age.  1980-2000 was a preview of the Digital Age, and 2000-2020 is the debriefing for the Industrial Age.  Each Age lasts two centuries, delineated by the Cycles of Jupiter and Saturn.  

It has always been clear to me that tools – mechanical or electronic – were replacing Huperson labor, and that whomever owned the tools would eventually thrive, while all others would become servants or fade back into poverty.  Or both.  It took me many years though, to understand that what the Patriarchy labels as “Primitive” cultures hold secrets that are a far cry from “poverty,” even if their existence is devoid of mod cons.

Our CAO also points out that asteroids Pandora and Tyche are also Conjunct Sappho.  Like Sappho, Pandora and Tyche are also only a few arcminutes from their recent Direct Stations.  Pandora, as the first Woman that the Gods Created, was the Greek equivalent of Lilith, and like Lilith, Pandora was blamed for all manner of ill that befell the Good Olde Boys.  

Greek Mythology recall is the propaganda that justified the Patriarchy’s victory over the Matriarchal Cultures that preceded it, just as Milty Friedman’s Economic Mythology is the propaganda that justifies the 1%’s victory over the relatively greater equality that preceded it.  If you haven’t noticed, Uncle Milty’s Mythology is worshipped by Presidential candidate Ted Cruz.

Tyche is an intriguing Energy.  She represented Mother Nature’s “arbitrary” destructive and creative whims, and was used in the early (Greek and Roman) Patriarchy to justify the unpredictability of Life under corrupt leadership, and the good fortune of the beneficiaries of the corruption – very reminiscent of the Economic situation today, as Naomi Klein (Shock Doctrine) and John Perkins (New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man) vividly describe.  

In the early Patriarchy, as in the Matriarchy, “Offerings” to the Gods and Goddesses were required to keep them on your side.  We regard human sacrifice as culturally obsolete, but that’s exactly what War is all about.  The modern “New Age” tradition of Gratitude is a form of Offering, as is Surrender of Control after PIAVAs.

Good reminders to “Allow our Identity to Expand, Embrace our Confusion, Surrender Control, and Trust the Process” as we suggested in the previous post.

Truthspeaking

April 4, 2016

Most of this is Water under the Bridge, but it’s recent enough that it may help you make sense of what’s been going on lately in your Young Life, and it’s very relevant to the Main Effect during the first half of 2016 – which is the removal, willingly or otherwise, of our last few Masks.  Removing Our Masks and Speaking Our Truth are pretty much just different ways of saying the same thing.  

It’s actually very possible to Speak Our Truth without being Offensive.  Many of us though are more in the habit of being Nice than Honest, so getting to that place will probably take some practice.  As we practice Speaking Our Truth, there’s one thing we need to remember.  

We can finesse our Speech to be less Offensive, but we have no control over whether or not its recipient is Offended.  

Even in Cross-Cultural situations where we’ve studied the protocols of the other Culture, people are still individuals and may not follow the protocols of their own culture.  Even if we’re careful to master the technology of Non-Offensive Speech, such as…

http://www.nonviolentcommunication.com/aboutnvc/aboutnvc.htm

we still can’t control what others hear.

We’ve worked through many of our Masks, as Uranus (True or Soul Self) Squared Pluto (Inevitability) from 2012 till 2016.  And we spent much of March, with its Eclipses, doing preparatory work for June’s peeling of the next layer, as Eris (Revelation of Denial) Initiates Uranus.

Which occurs on 9 June at 24 Aries, “Blown inward by the wind, the curtains of an open window take the shape of a cornucopia.”  We could worry that it’s not a real Cornucopia, just a curtain, an Illusion.  But that would be a waste of Imagination.  It we Feel Abundance, we can Be Abundance.  If we find ourselves focusing on Doubt, we can Embrace it Lovingly, and melt it into Oblivion.

Closely related to Removing our Masks, Speaking our Truth, and while we’re at it owning our Abandoned Genius, is the task of Letting Go of our Limiting Beliefs.  While there are many ways to do that, one way is to Lovingly and Gently re-Experience the Traumatic Memories that the Limiting Beliefs encode.  Tapping can greatly accelerate the process of shifting the Memories from Trauma to an Honest recollection of what happened, stripped of the Overwhelming Emotion that forced it into the Unconscious.  It may retain enough Emotional weight to have a strong impact on our Values, but it will no long be Overwhelming, and it will no longer be an Archetype controlling our Behavior from the Unconscious.

Consequently, it will not be surprising if between March and June Memories arise which provide us opportunities to Choose between Letting Go or Re-Leasing – as in signing up for an additional Lease term.  All of which suggests that we might find three new asteroids useful – Mnemosyne (Memory), Aletheia (Truth, in Greek), and Veritas (Truth, in Latin).  If there was an asteroid named for Lethe, the River of Forgetfulness or Oblivion (personified by a daughter of Eris!), that’d also be useful, as Oblivion is typical of Unconscious Overwhelm, Preconscious lack of Discernment, and garden-variety Denial – but I haven’t found one.  A drink from the River Lethe was an integral part of moving from one Lifetime to the next, a metaphor for the sort of Ego Death and Rebirth that’s involved with Letting Go of significant Limiting Beliefs.  Aletheia is A-Lethe-ia, or Non-Forgetfulness.

So, have these asteroids have been lit up lately, or will they be lit up when Eris Initiates Uranus?

Turns our Aletheia and Veritas are both in Aries, and Mnemosyne in Pisces…

  • On 17 March Uranus Initiated Aletheia at 20 Aries, “A young girl feeding birds in winter
  • On 27 March Uranus Initiated Veritas at 20 Aries, and Eris Initiated Aletheia at 23 Aries, “Through imagination a lost opportunity is regained
  • On 2 April Chiron Initiated Mnemosyne at 23 Pisces, “A ‘materializing’ medium giving a seance” and Sedna Initiated asteroid Karma at 25 Taurus, “A vast public park
  • On 4 April Eris Initiates Veritas at 23 Aries

Meanwhile dwarf planet Sedna (Actions Taken out of Fear) Dances with asteroid Karma – since Actions taken out of Fear are good candidates to accompany Trauma and Create Karma, it also belongs here.  Karma is Inertia – Habits, unproductive or misplaced Archetypes – and our Limiting Beliefs are just that, Self-Sabotaging Habits.

The valuable exercise here is to look for correlations between your Inner (Emotions) and Outer (Circumstances) Experiences during these times.  Did they demonstrate or betray any Limiting Beliefs?  Any places where your Conception of Reality wasn’t big enough to encompass What You Want?  Were you left puzzling about anything?  Did you have Epiphanies?
