*Lots* Going On 3

October 10, 2016

(5) We’re changing the Water, as a great deal of Ease drops away.  Not all of it, just the most Effortless.  What we’re left with it complementary relationships between Allowing the Rebirth that follows from Letting Go of our Masks, and the Scary Limitlessness that Opens as we begin to Embrace our Abandoned Genius.  The biggest remaining Challenge will be dealing with the Shadows and Projections of our Self-Love, Self-Hate, and Fear.  More on this to follow, as we work up to the Yin Gate and Full Moon.

(6) The Planet, with considerable Authority behind it (namely, the Galaxy), amps up its warning that its tolerance for Abuse is Limited.

(7) Are we actually witnessing another milestone in the Demise of the Patriarchy?  Will The Donald rescue himself?  Tune in next week.  See also (10).

(8) You’re right, War and Violence are not at all Self-Loving, for anyone involved, even the poor Souls trapped in the Bodies of Unconscious Warriors.  If you’ve been wondering where the Grief has been coming from, this is probably it.

(9) If we’re actually going to co-exist on the same Planet, Charisma alone isn’t enough – it begins to look too much like Rhetoric.  We also need to Work at Listening and Understanding.  Acknowledging another person’s Feelings goes a long way toward rapport, especially if you do it with a question instead of a statement.

(10) In the USofA we’ve lately seen plenty of Abusiveness and Privilege coming into Consciousness.  At the moment it’s the Privilege of Men and the Abuse of Women; the Privilege of Whites and the Abuse of Minorities will be back in the news soon.

(11) We’re still warming up to this Initiation; we’ll talk about it soon.

(5) By around 10 October, Karma abandons the Diamond Star and Grand Trine, but asteroid Hopi (Respect for all Things) moves into Opposition to Chiron, completing the Grand Cross till around 20 October.  The Grand Cross will still be Trine-Bridged by a Golden Rectangle and Quincunx-Bridged by Haumea and Uranus-Eris.  

The Ixion/Pholus-Chaos/Veritas axis of the Grand Cross is one of the three Oppositions in the developing Yin Gate.  There’s a picture of a Yin Gate at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2014/06/13/full-moon-yin-gate-and-portal-7-5-15/ , if you’re unfamiliar with the Configuration.  Of course the planets are different than they were in July, but the structure is the same.

The trace of our previous Bravery Vacancy will still make a Grand Trine with Haumea and Chaos, and Kites pointing to Uranus-Eris and Ixion-Pholus.

(6) We have two Initiations today (5 October).  Normally we’d cast Initiations as the centerpiece of our Interpretations – their relegation to footnotes shows how Big (#1-4) are.

First, Quaoar (Survival) Initiates Moira (Fate), which sounds pretty heavy.  The Degree is 28 Sagittarius, an old bridge still in use, and of course the Galactic Center, which is a pretty old bridge all right.

(7) Second, Lilith (Yindependence) Initiates Venus (Values) – the Blue Kachina that Lisa mentions, a significant milestone on our path toward the Yang Feminine Energy that we expect to replace the Patriarchy.  It occurs at 16 Scorpio, which symbolizes a girl breaking into a smile.  Mid-Scorpio is one of the four “Horsepersons of the Apocalyse” or Power Points of the Zodiac.

(8) The Red Kachina that Lisa mentions is found in the Initiations of Mars (Energy, Action) by Hylonome (Grieving the Disattachment from an Archetype) and Chariklo (Charm and Grace)…

First, Hylonome-Mars 29 September in 2 Capricorn, three Gothic Rose windows, one damaged by war.

(9) Second, Chariklo-Mars 3 October in 4 Capricorn, outfitting a large canoe.

(10) On 8 October, Nessus (Abuse and Privilege) and OR10 (Irruptions from the Deep Unconscious) Conjoin.  This is a long-term, slow-moving astroevent, and can be blamed for much of our Pain, as we become Aware of and Let Go of old Abuse.  See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/10/02/trigger-warnings/ .

(11) At our mid-month Yin-Gate Nemesis-Juno Conjunction (see https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/09/30/nemesis/ ), Mars will be Initiated by Pluto (Transformation, aka Trance-reFormation), which is Opposing Sirius, which Lisa mentions in regard to the Hopi Prophesies.

 

 

 

*Lots* Going On 1

October 5, 2016

Where to start?

(1) With the big Jupiter Septile Yod I guess.  It’s with us from around 1 October through 7 October.  Remember last week’s Magic Storm?  That was about one version of what we call “Magic” – the Miracle of Timing.  It’s one of the greatest Blessings that follow from developing your Intuition.  You can spend years (or Lifetimes) trying to do something without success, when the Timing isn’t right.  Then, when the Timing is right, you can accomplish it in a Heartbeat.  

Don Juan was always trying to teach Castaneda to “Save his Power,” and this is what he meant – don’t waste your Energy when the Timing isn’t right.  This is the Seventh Harmonic; planets one seventh of the way ’round the Zodiac from one another, or two or three sevenths.  How do we know when the Timing is right?  Our Intuition tells us, but we have to Listen to it and not let the noisy mind overrule it because it would be hard to defend in a debate.  The Moon, in its esoteric Meaning of Instinct and Authenticity, also plays a big role.

Look for places where you’re wasting Energy fretting about not doing something that your Shoulds are nagging about, when the Timing isn’t right, and places where you feel like you’re on a treadmill.  Watch for things that happen in a flash when you expected them to take forever.  We’re Learning here about the Held Emotions and Other People’s Expectations (such as Believing we have to explain ourself) that block us from Trusting our Intuition implicitly, instantly, and unquestioningly.

This next itemdddd deserves a long essay of its own, but I don’t have time right now, so I’ll be “brief”…  

(2) As we’ve discussed at length, we’re being Asked in no uncertain terms to take Responsibility to Embrace the Brilliance, Gorgeousness, Talent, and Fabulosity of the Truth of our Abandoned Genius.  Because the Programming that forced us to Abandon this part of ourself was Abusive, we have to work through a great deal of Pain to get to this Responsibility.  

(3) Until around 10 October, we’re Gifted with unusual Ease in this task.  You definitely want to take advantage of this.  How?  The easiest way is Self-Empathy – and being constantly Watchful for whatever you’re Feeling in the Present Moment…  

  • Anger?  Any Self-Judgment there?  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re questioning your Right to Self-Protection, aren’t you.”  
  • Worry?  Undifferentiated Unease?  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Anxious, aren’t you.”  
  • Not sure what’s going on?  Trying to figure it out mentally?  “You poor Sweetheart, you’re Feeling Confused, aren’t you.”  

Wait – Confusion’s the first sign of Growth, right?  Hooray, the Timing is Right to Celebrate!

(4) It gets better.  Surrendering to our Rebirth (which may of course Feel like Ego Death), and Surrendering to the Unknown (which is always Scary), will unleash tremendous Grace on not only the Challenge of Letting Go of our Limiting Programming, but also on any unfinished elements of our many-year task of Removing our Masks and becoming more Authentic to Who We Really Are.  That part is Given to us, all we need to do is stop Resisting it.  

We do have to add one Energy on our own, however, to make it all work Effortlessly.  That Energy is Bravery and Persistence.  If we’re Conscious of our Fear of Death and the Unknown, we can Tap Out the Overwhelm, Locate it in our Bodies, Warm it, Soften around it, Love it where it is, and Breathe into it.  Considering what’s Going On, this will be a Big Order, not because it’s so difficult to Tap or Warm or Breathe, but because what we Fear is so Big that we can’t see it.

We’re looking at our Relationships, our Economic Situation, our Health, our Well-Being, our Anxiety, our Emotions – everything facing and surrounding us.  But what’s Going On is Bigger than that.  A lot Bigger.  Imagine a cloud of Darkness surrounding your House, then your Neighborhood, then your Town, your County, your Region, your Country, your Continent, your Planet, your Solar System, your Galaxy.  That’s what we are Unconsciously Fearing here, and for most of us, it’s not Conscious.  Once we’re Conscious of it, we can Tap Out the Overwhelm, Locate it in our Bod, Love it, Breathe into it.

That part’s “easy,” once we get Conscious of our Fear of Transformation, and find the Courage and Persistence to find the Light Switch that’s hidden within All That Darkness somewhere, and pull it.  It’s Intimidating, but the Light that’s Behind the Sun is far more immense.  Bruce Cockburn said it well half a century ago…

So does Lisa Rising Berry, who advises us that “We have been taught to fear Dark energy, but it is the source of all creation,” at…

https://lisarisingberry.wordpress.com/2016/10/05/azoth-energy-coming-to-fruition-much-will-be-purified-and-transformed/

It’s a longer version than Bruce’s, but worthwhile, as she ties it in to many ancient and recent traditions, which, remarkably, we can and will match to what’s Going On in the sky now.

Expansion, recall, is one of the many obscure variations of PIAVA.  Find the Light Behind the Sun by Grounding yourself, then move your Consciousness up and out through the center of the top of your Head till you Connect to the Light.

(5-11) We’ll translate these into English soon.

(1) The Septile Yod points at Jupiter (Expansion) from a base of the Waxing Septile from Ceres (Sustainability) to the Conjunction between Neptune (Culture, Material Confusion and Spiritual Clarity) and the South Node (Held Emotion and Hidden Skills).

(2) We’re in the midst of a long-lived Chiron (Despair and Miracle) T-Square (Mastery through Challenge) on a base of the Opposition between Pholus-Ixion (Responsibility-Genius) and dwarf planet Chaos (Unlimited Potential), the latter joined by asteroid Veritas (Truth).  

(3) Asteroid Karma (Inertia) has come into a Sextile to Haumea (Rebirth), with Chiron at the Far Midpoint.  That creates a Chiron Diamond Star (Difficult Challenge Made Easier) across the Chiron T-Square, as both Haumea and Karma form Trine Bridges across the T-Square, in the form of a “bowl of Grace” under it.

(4) Asteroid Karma and Ixion-Pholus join with Uranus-Eris (Removing our Masks, Yintegrity) to form a Grand Trine, a Haumea Kite, and a Chaos-Veritas Kite, leaving one Vacancy to Create a Grand Sextile.  The Vacancy is 23 Capricorn, which is about Bravery in Combat.  Capricorn 23 is also the location of the January 2020 Pluto-Saturn Initiation.

All these Goings On (#2-5), as has often been the case recently, are in 22-25 of their respective Signs. The mid-October (and all month) Nemesis-Juno Conjunction ( https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2016/09/30/nemesis/ ) is in the same range, at 24 Scorpio, as is the Nova in the Constellation Lupus.

Thanks to Eliza Ayres for leading us to Lisa’s post – https://bluedragonjournal.com/2016/10/05/lisa-rising-berry-azoth-energy-coming-to-fruition/

(5) By around 10 October, Karma breaks out of the Diamond Star and Grand Trine, but asteroid Hopi (Respect for all Things) moves into Opposition to Chiron, completing the Grand Cross till around 20 October.  The Grand Cross will still be Trine-Bridged by a Golden Rectangle and Quincunx-Bridged by Haumea and Uranus-Eris.  

The trace of our previous Bravery Vacancy will still make a Grand Trine with Haumea and Chaos, and Kites pointing to Uranus-Eris and Ixion-Pholus.

A Month of Yindependence Work

August 27, 2014

vivian3166bpVivianite, an Iron Phosphate and a powerful holder and healer of Feminine Energy and Power.  Keep Vivianite Crystals in the dark if you want to preserve their color and transparency.  This month though you may find yourself less motivated to keep your Feminine Energy and Power in the dark.  Nevertheless, it could be a rocky month, and Self-Care is still Priority Number One.  The Vivianite Crystal in your closet is a good reminder to always be mindful of Self-Protection.

* * * * *

Elizabeth informs us that the probable dwarf planet Ixion is also Stationary Direct at 20 Sagittarius – the same location as the throng of Stationing Centaurs – on September 3.  Ixion in mythology, through a series of demonstrations of his total absence of moral character, ended up as the grandfather of the entire race of Centaurs.  Clearly something is up in the Sign of the Centaur.  Even more intriguing, it was a surrogate for Juno – the Edges of Consciousness – that Ixion coupled with to produce the father of the Centaurs.

In our earlier post we mentioned that Venus in Leo forms a Grand Trine with the Stationary Sagittarian Centaur Stellium and Eris-North Node in Aries.  On closer examination we find that Venus Conjoins Lilith.  Lilith moves a lot slower than Venus, which leaves this Grand Trine in place all during the month of September and well beyond.  So we need to look that over more closely.

Lilith Initiates Venus at half past 3am PDT on August 28, at 20 degrees of Leo, “Zuni Indians perform a ritual to the Sun: A return to the glorification of natural energies.”  It’s relatively unusual for a Sabian Symbol to be so specific, and interesting that the Zuni have maintained an irrigated desert agriculture for thousands of years, much longer than most irrigation-based cultures, because as irrigation water evaporates the soil becomes increasingly clogged with salts.  The Zuni succeed by understanding and following the rules about caring for the Land and the People, exactly what the dwarf Planet Quaoar is about – and Quaoar is also Stationary Direct among the gang of Centaurs.

While the Grand Trine starts as an enhanced Brilliant (Mercury and Mars make the Squares in the face of the Brilliant, and it’s enhanced by a Yod to Sedna from the North Node-Centaurs face of the Kite), the enduring parts of the complex include the Grand Trine itself between Lilith and Eris and Quaoar-Ixion-Chariklo-Pholus-Hylonome, and a Tricolor comprised of Lilith Square Sedna Quincunx the Centaurs et al Trine Lilith.  With Eris on the South Node, the Grand Trine is really a Kite focused on the North Node.

The mythology around Pholus and Hylonome centers on Death, Pholus by accident as a result of giving away too much hospitality, and Hylonome by choosing to follow her Lover to the Other Side.  While the dwarf planet Chariklo is a Centaur astronomically, the mythological Chariklo was a nymph depicted as a human whose primary attribute was beauty.  Like the Trine itself, Beauty has its own Karma, as the temptation of Arrogance, till one learns that the extra attention one receives is not due to strength of character.  Not that Chariklo herself is associated with Arrogance, just that inflation is a potential Karmic quality of Beauty.

So this trio of Centaurs kind of symbolizes several ways of Giving Away Our Power, through excess generosity, codependence or merging, and misinterpretation of Grace.  I can see Lilith gritting her teeth.

In the center of the herd are enforcer Quaoar and sociopath Ixion – Quaoar whose People believed that they would have to “go back to eating clay” if they didn’t follow the rules about keeping their Landscape in order, and the ultimate scofflaw Ixion, who was tricked by Zeus into dancing with the Edges of Consciousness to spawn the Centaur race.  Quaoar’s rules are about when to plant food crops, not about how often to water the lawn.  Of course any enforcer of the rules is also in Resistance to Creativity, and Victim of their own variety of hubris.

These are some deeply Archetypal notions.  Then we have whistleblower Eris, still within three degrees of the South Node, the very home of Karma.  If any party ever needed a Golden Apple, this gang of Sagittarii is it.  Heavy stuff – good thing it’s a Grand Trine!

The Tricolor starts with a Square from Lilith to Sedna…

The Risk in Yindependence lies in angering the fathers, as their reaction can be extreme and irrational.  Easing the Risk lies in Curiosity about what that Cavalry in Sagittarius might do or mean for us.  The fathers are conflicted.  The Stallion in them doesn’t want any Mares to leave the fold, and flying hooves can be murderous.  The upper half understands the prohibition – unless ruthless Ixion has taken charge.   There are times when the rulegiver needs to be overthrown, and who better for the job.  But will we have to go back to eating clay?

Feigned generosity or codependence or seduction no longer work, because the Mare half of the females is taking charge with her own flying hooves, and leaving the upper half to reassemble the broken pieces.

The Kite tells us that the North Node – our Mission – is in charge here, which is good…

The message is that while it could get very rocky in September, we’re better off letting “Nature” (or Chaos) “take it’s course,” rather than trying to steer anything one way or another.  Remember that the Galactic Center’s hyperbeam of Energy rides on the back of these Centaurs.  It won’t be immediate, but the outcome will be positive.  Expect to be very surprised by the way the Worm turns.

* * * * *

Next we need to see when the Moon crosses each corner of the Kite and Yod/Tricolor and the Vacancies of the Grand Sextile template, so we can see how the Energies will shift from week to week.  The Moon crosses the rodeo grounds September 2-3…

Our earlier post saw the Stampede intensifying on August 29 and September 3, 4, and 7.  Specifically, we should expect the hooves to fly strongest from around 6pm PDT September 2 till about 1pm PDT September 3.  Don’t be surprised by unexpected reactions – yours or others’ – here, as parts of ourselves that have been dormant suddenly wake up and demand a place at the table.  Lots of surprises.

The Moon Opposes Lilith September 6-7, then crosses South Node-Eris on September 10-11.

After some excitement September 6-7 overnight (probably some clarity about what those newcomers want), the next big peak will span roughly 10pm PDT September 10 through 8pm PDT September 11.  This is where you’re likely to discover that the Limitations you’ve been blaming on others are actually Limiting Beliefs within yourself.  Don’t try to save face here, just accept the Truth and feel how much Stress it releases, as you don’t have to cover up any more, and you can start working directly for what you really Wanted all along.

Moon over Sedna September 13…

Our next Portal open around 1am PDT September 13, and closes near 7pm PDT.  This is likely to be when the Risk will feel greatest.  Stand up tall, raise and spread your arms, and roar.  Make as much noise as you can.

On September 15-16 the Moon Opposes the Stables, and on September 20-21 it crosses Lilith.

Expect Stürm und Drang September 15-16, but much of it will be just bluster.  From 11am or so PDT September 20 till about 3am PDT September 21, though, the Birds come home to roost.  If you don’t feel Liberated by now, feel free to make a stand for it.  The Goddess is on your side.

The Moon crosses the North Node, at this point accompanied by Pallas, on September 25-26.

Portal 9.25-9.26 stretches from 9am PDT September 25 to 2am PDT September 26.  We should see the outline of those promised positive outcomes by now.  Reconsider all of your Boundaries here.  You may have been Protecting yourself in places where you’ve now recovered enough Power that you don’t need Protection there.  There may also be places where you need to strengthen your Boundaries, to protect Recovered parts of yourself that are still tender.

The last day of September sees the Moon again crossing Ixion, Pholus, Chariklo, Hylonome, Quaoar, and the Galactic Center.

The Cavalry rides through again on September 30, most intensely from 1am to 7pm PDT.  This is partly cleanup, and partly the beginning of Round 2, as the Configuration stretches into October.

It should be quite a ride.
