Portal 24.11b

November 24, 2016

We painted a fairly complete summary of the overall Jupiter-Square-Pluto (Letting Go of Insecurity) chart in Everybody Survive? …

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/11/21/everybody-survive-2/

We mentioned the Grand Sextile that asteroid Eurydike (Trust) completes, which includes the ongoing Golden Rectangle with Ixion, Chaos, Haumea, and Uranus-Eris-Ceres, which we’ve been discussing for a while as Grace-Full Recovery of our Abandoned Genius.  And we mentioned the two ancillary T-Squares to Chiron (Self-Empathy for difficult Emotions) and Lilith (Self-Sovereignty).  

All together, this is a very positive combination of Ease (the Grand Sextile) and Motivation (the T-Squares).  Michael Roads would see it as a lovely Torsion between Structure and Drive, between Stability and Change, frequently flashing the Brilliant White of Balance.

The Jupiter-Pluto Square itself occurs at 16 of Libra and Capricorn, at about 3pm PST.  As we detailed in the previous post, this is about Letting Go of Insecurity.  Its several companions (Moon – Instinct, Venus – Values, and Lachesis – Timing of Ego Shifts) smear it across the following several days.  

The times given are the times when the astroevent is exact or complete – most of us are likely to feel the Energy start to abate about then.  Should be interesting relative to any Challenges around other people you’re hanging out with.  The durations in parens are a guess at how long ahead of time we’re likely to be Feeling the Energy – depending on your Sensitivity of course…

  • 24 November…
    • 3pm PST –
      • Waning Jupiter-Pluto Square, Asking us to Expand into Emptiness.  The Eurydike/Eurydice story is about failure to escape from Pluto’s Realm (the Other Side of the Veil) because of Lack of Trust; the suggestion here is that we Expand our Metaphysical Self to encompass Pluto and his Realm.  (a month)
      • Lachesis Inititates Venus at 16 Capricorn, “Recess“; beginning a 16-month Cycle where it’s Important that we Suspend our Values so they can reorganize themselves to make sense of our recent and forthcoming Experience with the Changes.  If you hear yourself starting to say “I’m [not] the kind or person who…” swallow it so you don’t stop yourself from Growing.  (a day)
    • 6-8pm PST – 
      • Moon Waning Square Lachesis, Voiding of a one-month Cycle that Initiated at 9 Capricorn on 4 November; the Angel that’s been with us packs up her Harp, getting ready to leave.  (3 hours)
      • Jupiter Initiates the Moon at 16 Libra; this is a one-month Cycle reflecting the Jupiter-Pluto Deconstruction.  If you’ve been Grasping things you’re afraid to Lose, it would be an excellent time to PIAVA that you keep their Essence or Better and have an Effortless Transition.  (3 hours)
      • Moon Squares Pluto; this is a Waning Square in a Cycle that began on 5 November at 16 Capricorn, and essentially means that Recess is over.  (3 hours)
  • 25 November…
    • 6am – Venus Waxing Squares Jupiter, moving a one-year Cycle into Full Visibility; the Cycle began in late August at 28 Virgo, “A bald man has seized Power.”  So, now we know it’s a wig.  (a day)
  • 26 November…
    • 5am – Pluto Initiates Lachesis at 16 Capricorn, Recess again; this starts a four-year Cycle where we’re expected to be wearing the right uniform.  Ouch.  (a week)
  • 28 November…
    • Lachesis Waxing Square Jupiter, bringing into Full View a six-year Cycle that began in May 2014 at 20 Cancer, “Venetian gondoliers giving a serenade,” where we gain Energy by breaking with tradition.  About that uniform.  (a week)

Portals 1.7.15 and 5.7.15 – Self-Love?

June 26, 2015

Gay Hendricks has a concept called “Upper Limits,” where, if you start Enjoying Life more than your Limiting Beliefs would like you to, you self-sabotage.  His suggested response is that, when we get into new Enjoyment territory, we slow down, take it easy, rest a lot, pay attention to our physical requirements like food and water, and give ourselves time to Integrate.  If we start slowing down when we get Excited, rather than waiting till we self-sabotage, we may be able to avoid the sabotage entirely.  Not to back away from the Excitement and Enjoyment, just to mellow into it. 

Anybody hitting a wall here?  Or sailing high? 

  Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ 

The fastest corner of our Almost-Grand-Sextile is Jupiter, so it will stretch at least through the first ten days of July.  The corners are Uranus-Eris, Chaos, Venus-Jupiter, Haumea, Pholus-Ixion, and the “Nursery Rug” Vacancy, “so the children can play in comfort and warmth.”

  Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ 

Jupiter Initiates Venus at 1am PDT ( http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt1.htm ) on 1 July in 22 Leo, “A carrier pigeon fulfilling its mission.”

We can read Venus-Jupiter as Self-Love.  Or alternately, especially considering the other players in the Grand Sextile, Healing any lack of Self-Love.

Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ 

Haumea is Stationary, and on 5 July it turns Direct in 21 Libra, at half-past 2am PDT ( http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt2.htm ).  This isn’t Haumea’s first venture in the Gemini Duad of Libra – that started in December 2012 – but this Shadow Period pretty well spans the Gemini Duad, which begins the Gemini Decanate.

The Shadow Period is the time, and Zodiacal space, that a Retrogradation takes, including the planet’s first crossing the space before it goes Retrograde, and then traversing the space for the third time after it goes Direct.  Suppose a Retrogradation covers 21-23 Libra.  That’s the Shadow Period in space.  The Shadow Period in time begins when the planet first gets to 21 Libra, before the Retrograde Station, and ends when it clears 23 Libra for the second time, after it has gone Retrograde and then gone Direct again.  So while a Retrogradation might cover a month, the Shadow Period will be closer to three months.

Haumea itself is about Rebirth.  As Pele’s daughter, Haumea is red hot and very raw.  We want to give her lots of space, so she can cool off and congeal.  We can map Haumea through the Libra Decanates…

  • Libra Decanate of Libra – Rebirth into Meeting Other – 1995 to 2005
  • Aquarius Decanate of Libra – Rebirth into Community – 2005 to 2015
  • Gemini Decanate of Libra – Rebirth into Experimental Uses of Community

Haumea began this Shadow Period in October 2014, and turned Retrograde in January 2015.  So we’ve had two iterations of this exercise, and now we’ll put the finishing touches onto what we’ve learned.

A critical issue has been how much we’re willing to compromise our Yintegrity for the sake of Community.  Or alternatively, how much we’re willing to risk Community for the sake of our Yintegrity.  Ideally, Community and Yintegrity would be mutually supportive, Win-Win.  How many of us are close to that?  We might think of it as testing our Community.

Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ 

The other three corners here are not slouches.

Pholus-Ixion is about how much Responsibility we take, how much Power we take (for good or ill), how much Privilege we demand, how much Abuse we take, how much Consciousness we maintain.  Lots of interaction terms between these parameters, Self-Love, and Rebirth in Community.

Chaos is about Unlimited Potential.  We’re Co-Creating a New Planet here.  Where are the Edges between our Demands and our Requests as we negotiate the Boundaries?  As we dance between Yintegrity and Community, why aren’t we Demanding everything we Want?

Uranus-Eris is about clearing away additional layers of Denial so that our Yintegrity deepens by leaps and bounds.  If our Community doesn’t support our Yintegrity, our Community will get the short end of the stick.

Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ 

Then there’s the Vacancy.  It says…

Remember Upper Limits?  Take darn good care of yourSelf, your physical vehicle, and your Inner Child as you move through all of these Rebirths.  Your skin – physical and Identity – will feel molten for a while, and you want to give it time to solidify before the next wave hits.  If you can!  Be very gentle with yourself for the next several weeks “so the children can play in comfort and warmth.”

Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ

Then there’s the Grand Cross: Chaos, Pholus-Ixion, Chiron, and Lilith, though Lilith moves out of the Grand Cross by early July, leaving just the Chiron T-Square, and Finger of God from Venus-Jupiter and Haumea – an extremely Powerful Chiron Diamond Star in other words.

Without the Yod, we’d have Chiron Square to Chaos and Pholus-Ixion…

Miracles without Limit, if we can overcome a wad of Self-Doubt – Am I taking too much?

With the Yod, we have that “bowl of Grace” under the Opposition between Chaos’s Unlimited Potential and Pholus-Ixion’s Healing of Self-Doubt.  And the bowl of Grace is formed by the two most powerful players in the chart, Venus-Jupiter and Haumea…

Rebirth into Self-Love is available if we’re willing to make the shift to Miracles.  How to do that?  Empathize with yourself while you Feel your Self-Doubt.  Do it as many times as it takes.  Step outside your Feelings and look back in at the part of you that’s overwhelmed by those Feelings.  Look back lovingly.  How old is that Abandoned part of you?  Hold their hand.  Let them know that it’s okay for them to Feel everything they Feel.  Show them that you Love them no matter what. 

Self-Rejection is the deepest part of anyone’s Karma.  It’s a contest between how many times you fall down and how many times you get up.  Tap if it will help, and use your PIAVAs.  But the critical part is who outlasts the other – will your Self-Rejection overcome your Self-Love, or will your Self-Love endure longer than your Self-Hate?  Like pushups, this is about “reps” – be Loving with your worst Self-Rejection, over and over again, till it gets so easy that it’s automatic.  That’s how we build new, “good” Karma – reps.
