Time to Shift

October 14, 2017

These three are joined at the hip…

As we mentioned in the earlier post…

Our new Shift in Gender Balance occurs 5 October (9:30 am PDT), at 20 Virgo, ‘A caravan of cars headed to the West Coast: The need of cooperative effort in reaching any New World of experience.’  The way we usually draw our maps, the West Coast is on the Left, in a general way the Receptive or Feminine side…

“The Message is that we need to Embrace whatever remaining Guilt or Shame we have about the Forbidden part of our Genius-in-Hiding, and Trust our Intuition about how to Be in ways we haven’t Been since we were Punished for Being that way as a Child.  We need to get Conscious of our Fear that we’ll be Punished again (the Universe is likely to help by bringing it up), Poor-Sweetheart it, Tap it Out, and Trust its Urges.”

Compare this to what Sarah Polley says about these times…

 https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/14/opinion/sunday/harvey-weinstein-sarah-polley.html

“I think we need to look at what scares us the most.  We need to look at ourselves.  What have we been willing to accept, out of fear, helplessness, a sense that things can’t be changed?  What else are we turning a blind eye to, in all aspects of our lives?  What else have we accepted that, somewhere within us, we know is deeply unacceptable?  And what, now, will we do about it?”

The Venus-Mars Shift itself is about assembling our Team and heading for the Left Coast.  The 24-Virgo Trusting-Our-Guidance Shift (Eurydike Initiating Venus) is about “Mary and her little lamb: The need to keep a vibrant and pure simplicity at the core of one’s being.”  And the 26-Virgo Trusting-Our-Intuitive-Actions Shift (Eurydike Initiating Mars) is about “The first stage of actual participation in the great ritual of planetary evolution.”

Which is to say, The Bell Is Ringing, it’s Our Time to Take Over.  It’s neither by Land nor by Sea, it’s Both (Earthquakes, Floods), plus it’s by Air and Fire (Hurricanes, Wildfires).  Mother Gaia/Pi has Awakened.  It’s not that She’s mad, She’s just stretching her Limbs as She Stands Up to the Sun.  It’s been a couple of days; I recommend that you reread the previous four posts, as they do a good job of describing our Tools.  If you do that, the last thing you’ll read is…

“One of the most inspiring things I’ve read lately is from Suzanne Lie’s Channel…

http://suzanneliephd.blogspot.com/2017/10/preparing-your-self-to-remember-first.html

“ ‘Look at your third dimensional experience through the consciousness of your fifth dimensional Light Body SELF.  Through this exercise, you will begin to ‘close the gap’ between your third, fourth and fifth dimensional expressions of your SELF.’ ”

I’ve been getting remarkable results with this, which verifies to me that the Time is Now.  If there’s anything you don’t understand about that, let me know what I need to Clarify. 

If you’re Called to Direct Action, fine, but make sure the Call comes from the 5D end of the Funnel and not the 3D end.  The Action I See is a Focus on the Visual and Emotional elements of the Outcomes We Want to Experience, and not on any Mechanism that may or may not take us there.  From the 3D end, the only Mechanisms we can Imagine re those which have already proven not to work; from the 3D Perspective, the Others are Impossible.  On the 5D end, all we need to do is take one Intuitive Step after another, and Trust.

Whenever you catch yourself puzzling about how to make your 3D Mechanisms work, Let them Go, Shift to 5D, and go back to Planning your 5D Garden.  If your Yes-Buts (or even just your Buts) get in the way, then Yes-And a PIAVA about Shifting to 5D, maybe something like “I Wonder what the 5D Perspective would be on this,” or “Ganeshi My Love, Please Remove All Obstacles to my Shifting to the 5D Perspective on this,” followed by Changing the Subject.  Then after a day or so, Pay Attention to see what happened.

Boundaries Reset Full Moon

October 5, 2017

Today’s Full Moon is about Boundaries and Consciousness, especially about Becoming Aware of Leaky Boundaries where we let our Power dribble away, and Terminating the (Unconscious) Contracts that institutionalized them in the first place.  Any time Boundary issues arise for you, check to see if you’re playing the Victim.  If you are, Choose otherwise.  It has to be a Conscious Choice.  You’ll be Dancing with all manner of Guilt, and may well be face to face with someone Begging you to “help me!” when what they really mean is, “keep being my servant; I need someone to Abuse!”…

Asteroid Lachesis is named after one of the three Fates, the one who “cuts the chord,” or determines the length of a Timeline.  Mythology applies to the Unconscious, whereas we strive for maximum Consciousness, because Consciousness gives us the Power to Choice – if we so Choose.  So from our Perspective, Lachesis means the Power to Choose when to terminate or modify a Timeline, or Archetype, or Habit, or Behavior, or Contract.

Lachesis Conjoins Neptune, which is about Emotional Baggage that has us by the short and curlies, about Archetypes we feel Married to (hence Neptune symbolizes the Cultural Unconscious).  So we have the Opportunity during the one-month Lunar Cycle, which begins now, to Disavow all manner of Archetypal Contracts that give us Dis-Ease.  And the same goes for the several other Cycles we’ve just begun or are about to begin…

  • The one-year Mercury-Makemake Cycle (Manifestation Skill)
  • The two-year Venus-Mars Cycle (Gender Rebalancing)
  • The four-year Veritas-North Node Cycle (Finding our True Mission)
  • The four-year Atropos-Orcus Cycle (Ending Obsolete Contracts)
  • The five-year Hopi-Haumea Cycle (Respecting Diversity)
  • The six-year Aletheia-Varuna Cycle (Enjoying the Vitality of Truth)
  • The Lilith-Pholus Cycle (Being Responsible to our Sovereignty)
  • The one-year Venus-Eurydike Cycle (Trusting our own Values)

See the Calendar, https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/1-calendar/ , for more information of each of these Cycles.  They’re filed by date there.

Many of us are in the middle of Manifesting a portion of What We Want, and many of us are running into Speedbumps, some of which feel like Roadblocks.  Those Roadblocks and Speedbumps are nothing but Obsolete Contracts we made at one time with the Universe.  You can call them Timelines, or Archetypes, or Habits, or Behaviors, or Vows, or Oaths, or Promises, but they’re all Contracts, and the Stars are giving us Permission and Assistance at Letting Go of Them.

How do we Take Advantage of this Opportunity?  We PIAVA What We Want, and PIAVA What We Want to Jettison…

https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/manifestation/piava-review/

Intention would be a great Choice of PIAVAs.  Don’t forget Tapping when you’re dealing with Guilt and other Emotions that want to prevent you from Disavowing your Obsolete Contracts.  And remember that the Unconscious understands only Dimension, not Direction, so you don’t want to PIAVA negation.  Ask for Liberation from an Archetype, for instance.

 

Relationship Reset

October 2, 2017

Every couple years Venus zips around and catches Mars from behind, in what we call a Mars-Venus Initiation, the beginning of a new Venus-Mars Cycle.  It introduces a new Time Province in the Relationship between our Inner Female (Values, Guidance) and Inner Male (Action, Effort), which of course is the template that all of our external Relationships Mirror. 

Our new Shift in Gender Balance occurs 5 October (9:30 am PDT), at 20 Virgo, “A caravan of cars headed to the West Coast: The need of cooperative effort in reaching any ‘New World’ of experience.”  The way we usually draw our maps, the West Coast is on the Left, in a general way the Receptive or Feminine side.

The Cycle that we’re finishing began February 2015 at 2 Aries, “A comedian reveals human nature” – has that ever been true!  We’ve just been forgetting to Laugh.  Maybe this West-Coast Change of Water will help matters become a little less hilarious. 

The new Cycle begins Conjunct Eurydike (Trust).  It’s the focus of a T-Square (Challenge to Mastery) across the Opposition between Asbolus (Intuition) and Saturn-Ixion (The Most Important Thing Is to Recover Our Forbidden Genius).  In this Configuration Asbolus represents the Feminine, and Saturn-Ixion the Masculine. 

The Message is that we need to Embrace whatever remaining Guilt or Shame we have about the Forbidden part of our Genius-in-Hiding, and Trust our Intuition about how to Be in ways we haven’t Been since we were Punished for Being that way as a Child.  We need to get Conscious of our Fear that we’ll be Punished again (the Universe is likely to help by bringing it up), Poor-Sweetheart it, Tap it Out, and Trust its Urges. 

Yes, they’ll be juvenile.  If we Repressed our Genius at age 4, when They start to emerge again They’ll behave like a 4- or 5-year-old.  Go ahead and let Them Act Out – it’s the only way They’ll Grow.  And Grow They will, very quickly.  Even though They’ve been in Hiding, They’ve been watching.  Their first words and Actions will be young, but then They’ll remember what They’ve seen while Hiding, and Grow Up fast.  Trust them, says the chart…There are three Trine Bridges (Easy Alternative Paths) across the T-Square, two of which form a Air Grand Trine (Great Grace) with Asbolus.  This is fortuitous, since the two Graced Bridges are asteroid Karma (Archetypal Habits) and the South Node (Held Emotions).  Add the North Node Bridge, and we have five points of a Grand Sextile (Effortlessness – once we take the first step).  That makes the sixth point – Energy we have to add Consciously – the most Powerful in the chart.

That Vacant sixth point is 21 Aries, “A pugilist enters the ring.”  Which makes sense.  Our Genius-In-Hiding has little practice at Social Intercourse, and will be easily Intimidated.  Their residual Guilt will attract Bullying.  So we need to Defend Them.  As long as you aren’t in a bar, most Bullies will back down if you Stand Up to them.  Not to Challenge them or “return fire,” but to keep your chin horizontal and respectfully Assert your Right to Exist.  Let them have the last word.  Look them in the eye and Mirror them, borrowing their Bravado and trying it on as your own, without being bigger than your britches.

If we allow four Degrees of Sensitivity instead of three, which we can very legitimately do when looking at any Birth or Initiation, Eris (Opening to Important New Information that you sort of knew all along but never admitted to yourself) fills the Vacancy.  This suggests that the Bully will probably be the Messenger.  If a Bully insults you and rather then getting Angry, you think about it a minute and then say, “Wow, I never thought of it that way!  That makes sense!  Thanks, you’ve just helped me solve a Big Problem!” your Bully will probably be caught off guard.  

There are two other Initiations falling a few hours prior to the Mars-Venus Initiation, which Time-Coincidence will make them part of the Relationship Reset and color the next two years…

  • Varuna Initiating Aletheia in 2 Leo on 5 October (3am PDT).
  • Haumea Initiating Hopi in 24 Libra on 5 October (7am PDT).

These are six and five-year Cycles, respectively… 

  • The Aletheia-Varuna Cycle is literally about “The Truth shall set you Free” – it’s about the way Truth amps up your Energy level and your Effectiveness at meeting the World (and of course Collaborating with it). 
  • Leo 2 is about “An epidemic of mumps,” suggesting that Truth will spread through the population like a Virus, accompanied by Ego Deaths as it goes.  Most folks don’t do Ego Death as Gracefully as we’ve Learned to, so we can expect some grinding of teeth as we move through this.
  • The Hopi-Haumea Cycle is about Epiphanies of Respect for Entities whom you’ve never considered Respecting as Equals.  These sound like very positive Energies to paint onto the 3D World we’re Enduring.
  • Libra 24 is “A butterfly with a third wing on its left side,” or a Strengthening of our Intuitive Nature.  As we come to Respect Entities we’ve never considered Worthy, the impetus is likely to be sudden, possibly saving us from the embarrassment of having to explain why we haven’t been there before.  This will further the downfall of the now-so-obviously-Hollow Patriarchy.

These Cycles carry us across a major Threshold that would be useful to review.  From 1800 to 1980, the Saturn-Jupiter Initiations were in Earth Signs.  The Jupiter-Saturn Cycle governs the political economy of your Culture, and 1840-1980 approximates the Industrial Age.  From 2021 till 2160, Saturn-Jupiter Initiations will be in Air Signs – the Digital Age. 

Between 1980 and 2020, the Saturn-Jupiter Initiations stuttered…

  • 1980-2000 was the first of the Air-Sign Jupiter-Saturn Cycles and a preview of the Digital Age – 1980 when Bill Gates contracted with IBM to begin mass-producing the Personal Computer, and 2000 (almost to the day) of “Dot-Com Crash” fame. 
  • 2000-2020, home of the last Earth-Sign Cycle, has been the Debriefing for the Industrial Age.  Knowingly or not we’ve been Deciding which elements of the Industrial Era we want to carry with us into the Digital Age.  Patriarchy?  Nah.  Wage Slavery?  No thanks.  Competition?  Ummm, Collaboration is better.

Before 2021 and the full-blown Digital Age, we’ll have another Venus-Mars Cycle following the one we’re now beginning, when our Gender Balance and all it implies will Shift again.  The August 2019 Mars-Venus Initiation will be in 5 Virgo, “The opening of new levels of Consciousness.”

Back to the current Time Province, the Full Moon follows the current Mars-Venus Initiation by only a few hours, giving a big kick-start to this Community movement to the Left Coast.

Maker Moon

October 25, 2015

Tuesday’s Full Moon is unusual.  A Full Moon is a comment on the Zeitgeist of the following several weeks.  There’s little Grace, good Curiosity, and big Insights involved in this one.  Your doorway into Epiphany is your Instincts – Trust them.  Your password is Discouragement.  Pay close (and Loving) Attention to any Discouragement you encounter…  

“You poor Sweetheart, you think that’s impossible, don’t you.  I Wonder what it would take to make it possible.  What if it was such a subtle difference that we’d hardly notice the change”

would be a good icebreaker.

The Configuration looks so much like a Crossbow that I think we’ll call it that.

A Crossbow Configuration is a Finger of God pointing at the focus of a Mjolnir Kite.  I’d draw it out for you, but I’m technologically challenged at the moment, so I’ll have to describe it.

Mjolnir Kite is formed when two planets make opposing Trioctile Bridges across an Opposition.  Said another way, a third planet at the far Midpoint of two planets that are Square forms a Mjolnir (Hammer of Thor in the vernacular), pointing at the third planet.  So the third planet is Trioctile to each end of the Square.  Mjolnir means Lightning, or Epiphany.  Add a fourth planet Opposite the third planet (at the near Midpoint of the two Square planets), and you have a Mjolnir Kite, shifting the focus to the fourth planet (the “top” of the kite).

Now, add two more planets, one Sign away from the third planet, on either side.  Since these will both be Quincunx to the fourth planet, they’ll form a Finger of God (meaning Pay Attention!) focused on the fourth planet.  No pressure, but the combination sure lights up the fourth planet!

The Full Moon is at the apex of the Finger of God and the Mjolnir Kite, hence the emphasis on Instinct.

We consider the Moon to have three levels of operation.  First it is you variable Emotions – the way you react with anger some times and don’t care other times, when confronted with the same phenomenon.  The second level is Instinct.  Even though the stimuli are superficially similar, you react with anger when behind the stimulus is an invisible threat to your Safety, and you don’t care when there is no threat.  I always use the example of someone cutting you off in traffic, because we know it so well; in the one case they’re cutting you off because they’re angry (and possibly armed), and in the other case because they’re legitimately in a hurry.  The third level is that Lunar Energy is the glue that keeps matter from flying apart into MC-squared Energy.

But that’s not why we refer to this Full Moon as a “Maker” Moon; that’s because, other than the Mjolnir Kite, the only other Angles formed by this Full Moon are Makemake and Saturn Quintile Bridges (together creating the Finger of God).

Makemake was the God who saved the Easter Islanders from starvation after their environment was degraded, teaching them tricks like planting Seeds in the lee of rocks, where Water would condense out of the fog.  Makemake’s “Discovery” chart reeks of Manifestation.  While the name is a “coincidence,” it came into Huper Awareness at about the same time as the Maker Movement began.  If you aren’t familiar with the Maker Movement, Bing the phrase plus the name of your town, or the nearest college town.  Everywhere in the US now there are shops set up, for sharing, usually for a small membership fee, that include 3-D printers, milling machines, other fabrication tools, and folks who know how to use them and are willing to share their knowledge, so you can combine $20 computer controllers with circuitry and machinery to Manifest your inventions into hard copy.

The Quintile Bridge adds the Wondering, as the nature of a Quintile is constant Surprise, as long as we don’t freeze the Action by pretending that our Question needs an Answer.

The other two planets in the Mjolnir are Chiron and dwarf planet Chaos.  

Chiron symbolizes Despair/Discouragement (the “Unhealable Healer”) changing to Miracles when Empathy (Neutrality and Presence) is applied to the Despair (“You poor Sweetheart, you’re really bummed, aren’t you.” – it’s not a question).  How?  By Empathizing with your own Discouragement, you are no longer Identified with Discouragement, you’re now Identified with Empathy.  This is the equivalent of Changing the Subject in PIAVA – it opens up space for new information to innoculate your “stuck” space, allowing what would have been seen from the Perspective of Discouragement as Miracles.  

Rather than Disorder, dwarf planet Chaos represents Unlimited Opportunity.  Chaos is what existed before the Greek Gods came into existence.  Of course they considered themselves, like all Gods, to be the First and Only Gods.  But actually, prior to the Greek Gods there were plenty of other Gods, including many apparently-Miraculous Pyramid-Makers, most of whom were Maternally oriented.  So if Unlimited Opportunity (the infinitely deep Zero Point Field) is a bit scary for you, you can think of Chaos as the constantly shifting evolutionary realm of Mother Nature.  I know, She frightens a lot of people, with her Snakes for hair and all.  In my neighborhood, where all the kids are on Ritalin, they allow only plastic shrubbery, so She doesn’t get unruly.  If She scares you a bit, remember that you are an integral part of Nature, and since according to General Relativity the Universe has no center except for Everywhere, you are the Center of your Universe.  You can Manifest whatever you Want.  If you Believe you can.  Go easy.  Expand your Want Universe by two or three percent at a time; double or nothing will often leave you with nothing.

So you can see, this is a pretty big deal.  That leaves Saturn, the other corner of the Finger of God.  Saturn means The Most Important Thing.  

So here at the Full Moon the basic message is that The Most Important Thing is Owning more of your Power as the Master Co-Creator that you actually are.  As Marianne says…

“It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.  Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.  We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?  Actually, who are you not to be?  You are a child of God.  Your playing small does not serve the world.  There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.  We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.  It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.  And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.  As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”  —Marianne Williamson, Return to Love

One other indication – the Venus-Mars Conjunction Opposes Chiron and completes a Chaos T-Square.  The Conjunction is not an Initiation; the Initiation occurred last February at 2 Aries, “What a joke, those Hupers.”  This is the Confidence-Builder phase of the triple Conjunction.

In order to avoid Overwhelm by the vastness of the Possibilities, we need to use All of our Skills.  It’s not enough to PIAVA and hope for the best, and it’s not enough to Plan and Execute.  We need to do both.  We PIAVA what we Want, Change the Subject, Pay Attention, and then Respond to the information we receive, either with a mores new PIAVA that accounts for the new information, or an Action based on the new information that moves us toward our Wants.  It won’t always work that way, but alternating PIAVA and Action will probably produce the best results here.  It’s a good opportunity to compare the scope of your PIAVAs and Actions.  If you’re PIAVAing the World but Acting only in your own back yard, or PIAVAing a small goal while Planning and Executing Globally, you may want to consider Rebalancing them.  If you’re new to PIAVA, see the “PIAVA” entry in the “Categories” list to the right.

You may not have noticed, but at least in the US, Big Ag is poisoning us for profit.  Many folks saying that we’re winning the struggle against them.  Here’s a surprise vote in that direction…

August-September VII

August 26, 2015

opalor2316bpOpal comes in many forms, and is useful for many purposes, including Soul Retrieval.  Opal is just Quartz with a bit of Water included in the Crystal Structure.  It’s the reflection off the Water molecules that creates the “Fire” or Dance of Colors in Opal.  This is an Oregon or Jelly Opal.

  Š    Š    Š    Š    Š 

After dwarf planet Sedna turned Retrograde today, it took three and a half hours for Wall Street to realize that the Fear had subsided and they could buy again.  Sedna’s a newcomer, so nobody knows a lot about it, but I interpret it as Actions taken out of Fear, and that’s certainly what Wall Street’s been doing for the last several days.  When a planet is slowing to a stop, in this case turning Retrograde (backward in the sky), we feel the planet’s effect very strongly while it’s slowing down.  Then once it stops and starts moving again in the opposite direction, the impact usually diminishes quickly.

The exception is when we personalize the Energy, and make Decisions based on it.  For instance, if we attributed the Fear around Sedna’s Station to economics, we might make a Decision to get out while we can.  Then we’ll be selling into any Recovery the market makes.  In that case, the impact of Sedna’s Station could linger long after the event.  It remains to be seen whether this is the first body blow of the Monster Depression that the bears have been predicting for years.  Economists are well know for predicting twenty of the last twelve Recessions.  But as corrections go it’s pretty routine – sure, it was 1,000 points, but that’s only six percent, and a correction of that size is long overdue.

Which doesn’t diminish the fact that we’re in uncharted territory, where derivatives (which are gambles about bets on wagers) could turn a 1,000-point decline into 10,000 points overnight if the wrong bull was gored.  And that yes, a Monster Depression is likely sometime between now and 2020, which is why we’ve been advising alternative approaches to Survival for many years as part of our Perspective on the Chiron-Neptune Cycle – growing your own food, exploring small-scale entrepreneurship with things like the Maker Movement, finding our Tribe, working toward Sustainability in any way we can.

Chiron is the poster child for a group of dwarf planets that we want to talk about today, the “Centaurs,” so named because they appear to be half asteroid and half comet, like the Centaurs of Greek fame that were half horse and half Huper.  The astro-Centaurs orbit between Saturn, Uranus and Neptune – that is, between the Will, the Individual Unconscious, and the Cultural Unconscious, or between the Ego, the Individual Soul, and the Group Soul.  As such they deal with Emotions that are on the Edges of our Consciousness.  For instance…

  • Chiron deals with Discouragement/Despair over the Shortcomings of our Limiting Beliefs, which we perceive as Limitations of Reality; once we Lovingly Witness our Despair we Expand our Consciousness and are visited by Perspectives beyond our previous Limiting Beliefs
  • Chariklo deals with the Expectation of Privilege, from the Female side (Nessus from the Male side); like Self-Love, the Expectation of Privilege tends to be Mirrored by external Reality
  • Hylonome deals with our Identity – Ego-Identification or Merging with people or things outside ourself, and in particular the Ego Death which we experience as Grief when our external Mirror-Image is broken
  • Pholus deals with the Expectations of Others, and how well we meet them; it’s about Taking Full Responsibility for what’s important to us and important to those with whom we have tacit or explicit contracts

The Centaurs represent Challenges, Challenges that we meet by Expanding our Consciousness to include Awareness of these Emotional issues which often blind-side us till we Learn to include them in our Emotional repertoire.  One of the characteristics of Centaurs is that their orbits are unstable; they could get a wild hair and fly out of here in any given millenium.

The other group of dwarf planets that we want to talk about today are “Plutoids” – asteroids that orbit in the neighborhood of Pluto.  There’s a big shift between Neptune and Pluto.  Neptune is the last of the four “Gas Giants” – huge planets that are mostly Gas, too small but otherwise Star-like – along with Uranus, Saturn, and Jupiter.  Beyond Neptune we find only small iceballs like Pluto.  Because it’s so large, Neptune’s gravity exerts a big impact on the orbits of many Plutoids.

Pluto is generally associated with the “Universal” Unconscious, or the Zeitgeist, the flow of Time.  As such, it’s about Transformation – or Trance Reformation, as the Zeitgeist evolves or devolves – and about the things we pretty much must do or not do, if we don’t want to end up on a siding in the flow of Time.  While the Centaurs work on the Edges of Consciousness, the Plutoids work, for most people, beyond the Edges of Consciousness.  So we don’t normally see the Plutoids as within our Span of Control.  Of course it’s As-Without-So-Within and We-Are-All-One (including all the Entities that we don’t routinely personify), so the Edges of our Span of Control are really only the Edges of our Consciousness.

Some of the Plutoids include…

  • Quaoar – the Law-Giver, not for the sake of Order, but for the sake of Survival; Quaoar defines the Edges of Survivability
  • Ixion – Impulse, the Desire Body, that operates without concern for Other
  • Chaos – Unlimited Potential
  • Haumea – Rebirth
  • Eris – the principle of Denial and the Changes required by its Revelation
  • Makemake – Manifestation
  • SednaActions taken out of Fear

Sedna is an outlier here; Pluto and all of the others orbit between 30 and 100 times as far from the Sun as is Earth, while Sedna’s orbit ranges between 76 and 936 times as far from the Sun as we are.  For reference, Jupiter is at about five times, Saturn 10, Uranus 20, and Neptune 30 times.

All of which is background for early September, because between 4 September and 9 September, Ixion, Chariklo, Pholus, Hylonome, and Quaoar are all Stationary – and all more or less in the same place.  Astrologers call it a “Stellium” when three or more planets convene in the same Zodiacal place, but here we have a Stellium of five, all Stationary at the same time.  During a Station, as we said at the beginning, the impact of a planet is greatly exaggerated.  And during a Stellium, the Energies of the Conjoined planets are combined, which creates Energies we aren’t used to.

For instance, we’re well acquainted with the Energy of Assertion, Mars, and the Energy of Receptivity, Venus.  But now that they’re Conjoined (as they are on 31 August, with the Energy felt most strongly for the several days prior), do we know what to do with Assertive Receptivity or Receptive Assertiveness?  “Go screw yourself” is a common insult, but we don’t usually mean it literally.  If you “accused” most people of Androgyny, they’re likely to give you a similar insult.  Yet achieving Androgyny, where our Receptivity and our Assertiveness are Balanced, is a Mission of the Soul.   Would you recognize it if you saw it?  And if so, would you admire it?  Can you imagine how it might Feel to be Androgynous?  And this is only two planets.

In our 4-9 September Stellium we’re dealing with five dwarf planets being Strong at the same time, all of which have impacts much more subtle than Assertiveness and Receptivity.  And by the way, Venus is also Stationary during this period, and while it’s not in the same place, it’s in a Harmonic location to the Stellium. 

Venus is Trioctile to the Stellium, indicating that the Stellium of Stations will be inspiring us to evolve our Values.

In addition, the Stellium is Stationary very close to the Galactic Center.  This means that as these subtle Unconscious Energies combine they will be Channeling a message – Instructions – to the Unconscious from the Galactic Command Post.  So we can Expect to see a shift – a Major Shift, whether too subtle to Notice or not – in the Consciousness of the Planet.  What sort of Shift?  While since it’s Unconscious it’s not for us to know in any detail, yet if we can get an idea of what to look for, we can in a general way Witness it and Grow our Consciousness.

There are many other related Planets in the early-September chart; we’ll discuss their role as we go on.  But for now, let’s focus on trying to imagine how the Energies of the five dwarf planets in the Stellium might combine.

While the Stellium combines all five planets, two are close together but separated by a few Degrees from the other three, which are also close together.  So we can start by looking at the Pair and the Triad, then trying to tie them together.

The Pair is Pholus and Ixion.  We’ve talked about these two before, as they’ve been traveling together for a while.  Ixion is Uncontrolled Desire, Pholus Full Responsibility for the consequences of our commissions and omissions.  So this combination seems to be about Taking Full Responsibility for our Deepest Desires.  Our religious training would suggest that we interpret that as Taking Full Responsibility for controlling our Deepest Desires. 

But since the astrology we practice is about Healing and Integrating, we interpret it as Taking Full Responsibility for allowing and welcoming our Deepest Desires.  To the extent that they’ve been repressed (which we can assume – if you already Love your Deepest Desires, this is an opportunity for you to go Deeper), there will likely be some personal and social discomfort involved at first, as we experiment with how to let them out of their cages.

The Triad is composed of Quaoar, Chariklo, and Hylonome, and this Triad sits astride the Galactic Center, so forms the core of our Instructions. 

Chariklo symbolizes Beauty and Grace, and Humans are wont to give deference to Beauty and Grace – hence Chariklo has the flavor of unearned Privilege.  Of course Beauty and Grace can be Learned and so may carry a price and Feel earned.  Yet to Grow our Consciousness we may be Asked to Notice that we give deference to Beauty and Grace in situations where it may not be in our own best interests.  He turns the notions of Beauty and Grace upside down (but so what – astrology is about dimensions, not directions on the dimension), but we can’t help but wonder if The Donald (Trump, that is) isn’t personifying this Energy.  If that hunch is true, then we should expect to be hearing a lot less about him by mid-September. 

Hylonome was a female Centaur who immediately committed suicide with the lance that killed her lover.  So we have the concepts of Unbearable Grief, but even more important, the concept of Identification with Other to the point that the Self is virtually non-existent.  The implication is that we all have elements of our Identity that are Other-based.  Just as Fundamentalism is the process of Believing that your metaphors are literally true, Codependence is the process of Believing that your Mirrors are You.  We often admire what we don’t have permission to Be in ourself.  So while Grieving the Loss of our Identity is an Ego Death with all of the Soul-searing pain that involves, it’s actually a Soul Retrieval, as we are forced to give up Codependence and substitute a previously orphaned portion of our True Self.  Let’s hope this doesn’t involve the demise of a beloved World Hero or Heroine, if we have any left.

As with other processes of Growth in Consciousness and Spiritual Growth, we’re Asked to Focus on the Unknown Future rather than the Known Past.  In that task, Perpetual Curiosity is our greatest friend, as long as we can maintain it and not surrender to our craving and addiction to trying to Understand.  The World is a Mystery; when we Believe we Understand, we murder the World.  Confusion is the First Sign of Growth, but if we quash it with illusions of Understanding, we stop our Growth cold.

So we’re being Ordered (Quaoar) by Central Command (the Galactic Center) to Grieve the Loss (Hylonome) of Unearned Privilege (Chariklo), or better yet, to accept the Loss as a Return to Self, or the invocation of a Vision Quest to Retrieve a portion of the True Self through Honest Curiosity about an unknowable Future.  But wait – we’re also being Asked to either Take Full Responsibility (Pholus) for the parts of ourself which we previously rejected as unfit for polite company, or Take Full Responsibility for the parts of ourself that our friends and associates would love to be able to reject as unfit for polite company (Ixion).  Not Blame, which looks backwards to attempt to Understand a Cause (ie, murder), but Responsibility, which looks forward to attempt to improve an Outcome.

To me this suggests a further loosening of the yoke of Hierarchy and Inequality.  As Power Over corrupts, Taking Full Responsibility for Power means shifting to Power With.  If you haven’t read Starhawk’s Truth or Dare yet, this would be an excellent time to do it, as in it she Teaches us the difference between Power Over and Power With, all in the context of an Inferior Conjunction of Venus (the Descent of Inanna), which we’ve just experienced.

This is all happening in Sagittarius, the Sign of Letting Go.  So while Noticing what’s going on is appropriate as part of Growing our Consciousness, Giving Up Control is also appropriate as part of Sagittarius.  We can do Both/And, and it behooves us to do so. 

We’ll look at the rest of the early-September chart when we continue…

August-September IV

August 21, 2015

Well, I was wrong.  On 31 August Venus Conjoins Mars at the Midpoint of Leo, but it’s not an Initiation, it’s an Exposition.  Mars Initiated Venus on February 21 of this year, at 2 Aries, “A comedian reveals human nature.“  Then Venus backtracked, and now crosses Mars for the second time.  So we might postulate that the dance between our Inner Collaborative Female and our Inner Competitive Male failed to see the humor in some Can-Opener event or process in February, and so we’re getting a second chance to discover how our Ego prevents us from dancing Gracefully with ourself around this issue.  Of course our outer circumstances Mirror the dance between our Inner Collaborator and our Inner Competitor.

When two planets dance thrice (because the faster planet turns Retrograde and crosses the slower planet a second time, then a third time after the faster planet turns Direct), the first crossing introduces some Issue that our Deeper Consciousness wants brought up into Consciousness to Integrate.  We call this a Can-Opener because it almost always catches us unprepared and triggers some Ego-Attachment that arouses Emotions we prefer to Justify rather than Witness. 

At the second crossing (the Exposition), the Can-Opening event or process is repeated, but this time we’re better able to see what’s going on (as the faster planet is now Retrograde or as if in slow motion), and we gradually come closer to Witnessing and Letting Go.  The third crossing is the Confidence-Builder, as the offending event or process recurs but now our Consciousness has Expanded to the point that we can handle the offense Gracefully and Confidently.

The Venus-Mars Confidence-Builder will occur on 2 November.

Wow, does this discover ever straighten me out!  I’ve been fretting over having been ripped off last week, and experiencing all manner of unpleasant Emotions (mostly revolving around Fear) as a result.  While I’ve been working with Robert Moss’s suggestions to see the messages hidden in the unusual circumstance, I haven’t yet had a real Aha! moment about it – till now.  No wonder I couldn’t sleep!  (The current Exposition includes a Mjolnir, symbolic of Epiphany!  Some comedian!)  In February I was very much fretting over having been ripped off in a very different way, and then mostly revolving around Anger.  Two flavors of the same dance!  Both times I concluded that my error was over-Collaboration and inappropriate Trust – the Venus side of the equation.  Conclusions are a natural tendency, but they aren’t helpful.  In February my Anger (the Mars side) isolated me; this time my Anger rescued me.

The “Coincidence” also validates the PIAVA process, where the key is that the first thing the Universe does to respond to a request, is to show us why we’re in Scarcity around what we’re Asking for, why we haven’t had Abundance around that all along – because the Universe would rather show us what we need to Change than just shower us with Rose petals.  God Bless the Child who can stand up and say, I got my own!  At least this Universe-as-Teacher process is relevant in my own Life, but I have a natal Grand Quintile (constant Learning/Teaching) and a strong Pluto-Nodes Relationship (Wer immer strebend sich bemüht), so I’d be very interested to know whether the same phenomenon can be identified in your Life.

So we don’t have a Mars-Venus Initiation after all, “just” a Venus-Mars Conjunction.  But as we’ve already seen, it remains a profound one!

So think back to mid-February – what was going on in your Young Life then, that “rhymes” with what’s going on now? 

If you’re experiencing what Feels like a Loss of Privilege, don’t fall for it – it’s a Paper Tiger, a hallucination out of your hypnotic bag of Karmic tricks.  If you can detach your Ego from that ongoing Fear, you’ll discover a very powerful and productive Expansion in the way your Collaborator and your Competitor dance together.

The ongoing Chariklo-Hylonome Conjunction (Terminal Grief over Loss of Beauty and Grace) Squares the South Node (Karmic hallucinations), but the Square forms the base of a Mjolnir focused on the Venus-Mars Conjunction.

A Mjolnir (Norwegian for Thor’s Hammer) is formed when a third planet occupies the Far Midpoint between two planets that are Square to one another; in other words, a triangle formed by a Square and two Trioctiles.  The Square represents the Insoluble, and the Trioctiles represent the Adjustments that make the Square usefully Motivating (via Insight – Epiphany) rather than Frustrating.

This means that Chariklo-Hylonome T-Square the Nodes, but the Mjonir forms a Bridge over that conundrum.  Plus, Lilith and Makemake Conjoin the North Node, in preparation for their triple Initiation in early September.  Lilith represents Yindependence – Collaboration without surrendering Sovereignty, and Makemake is about Creative Manifestation.  Mercury is close by, implying that intellectual Understanding is possible.  You can see how my conclusion that I was over-Collaborating would have condemned me to missing this remarkable opportunity to Expand – which is what conclusions do.  Persistent Curiosity is so much more Powerful!

Venus-Mars Trines Pallas (Boundaries) – if I reframe my ripoffs as Boundary issues rather than over-Collaboration issues, it’s a whole new dance.  Venus-Mars also Trines a Moon-Vesta Conjunction (Emotional Attachment to our Beliefs) – I obviously have a belief that I’ll be ripped off, which I can work on by being Loving and Gentle with it, perhaps, if I’m lucky and skillful, coaxing out the Inner Child and/or Karmic Experiences that give it Emotive Power.  This makes a Grand Trine (Dumb-Luck Grace) which expands into a Kite (Grace with a Magnified Focus) focused on the Centaur Asbolus (Intuition) – Letting Go of Held Emotion (Karma) opens our Intuition because Held Emotions and Toxins literally cloud the natural Channels that connect each of our Mitochondria (Mother Cells) to the Zero Point Field (aka All of the Information in the Universe).

Moon-Vesta in turn Square Pluto (Mandatory), making Pluto to focus of a Yod (Pay Attention!) with Venus-Mars and Asbolus as its base.  Which is to say, there’s nothing optional about all of this!

To be continued yet again…

August-September III

August 19, 2015

“Coincidentally,” several posts by others have popped up that are oh-so relevant to our several Adventures here in August and merging into September…

We don’t usually speak in these terms, but I have no doubt that Ascension is also going on…

http://www.sandrawalter.com/unified-cosmic-trigger-higher-choices/

And Dr. Kim provides a broader Perspective, along with a great tool, for Clearing persistently troubling Emotions…

http://drkimderamo.com/are-you-energy-sensitive/

And here’s a great view of the current Descent of Inanna (Inferior Conjunction of Venus), post-2012…

https://heartshapedeyes.wordpress.com/2015/08/19/the-mouth-of-gaia/

And finally, a quiz to see if we’re doing our Identity homework…

https://soulspeak2013.wordpress.com/2015/08/19/at-the-table-filling-in-the-blanks/

  Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ 

Let’s finish up August, as I’m eager to write about some fairly remarkable events coming up in September.

Our Old Egos are due for a comeuppance at, around, and/or after the 29 August Full Moon. 

Most of us still have one foot in the Old Industrial-Era World of Exploitation, and a portion of our Identity likely remains wrapped up in that.  Whether the Old Order gives us Validity through our Achievements or through Socialization with our workmates, gives us Security through our income, gives us a sense of Value through our “contributions to society,” gives us Juice because of the Competition, or however it props up our Self-Worth, we could be due for a shock. 

If this occurs, Acknowledge and Witness any Fear or Anger or Grief that arises, and be Loving and Gentle with it.  Review your understanding of Ego Death (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/identity/ego-death/ ), so you can respond positively to the signs after you acknowledge their Veracity.

Your other foot is already in the New post-Apocalypse World of Collaboration and Cooperation.  You may be growing some of your own food, establishing neighborhood tool-sharing, kickstarting or funding new ventures, playing with 3-D printers and milling machines at your local Makerspace, downsizing your use of resources, promoting Equality, or any number of other Activities oriented toward a Sustainable and Regenerative World.  Once you’ve Embraced your Emotions about whatever nicked your Old-World Identity, redouble your Efforts toward your New-World Identity.  If there’s a Leap of Faith involved, go for it.

While the Jupiter-Neptune Opposition isn’t Exact until 16 September, the Full Moon sits across it.  On the same September day Makemake (Creative Manifestation, and it’s no accident that Makemake shares a name with the Maker Movement) Initiates the North Node (our Mission).  This Opposition is a blooming of the Jupiter-Neptune Cycle that began in late May 2009, at 27 Aquarius.  Long-time readers may recognize that as having occurred within a few days of the Chiron-Jupiter Initiation in the same Degree, and within a few months of the Neptune-Chiron Initiation, also in the same Degree, “Fresh Violets in an ancient pottery bowl.”  This is the “New Paradigm” we’ve written much about, and which we regard as the major correlate with the Wall Street Crash of 2007-8.  If you aren’t a long-time reader, look up “Chiron-Neptune” in the Categories list at right (https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/cycles/chiron-neptune/).

Meanwhile, the Full Moon very closely T-Squares the asteroid Hybris, a “misspelling” of hubris.

Jupiter is now past its Waning Square to Saturn, which means we’re dropping into the Void with regard to Social and Economic Activities, so we’re overdue for a review of the Jupiter-Saturn Cycles.  Saturn-Jupiter Initiations occur in the same Element (Fire, Earth, Air, Water) for two Centuries, then they switch, with a stutter between Elements.  The Industrial Revolution and it’s Wage-Slave consequences spanned the last two Centuries of Earth-Sign Initiations.  Then, almost exactly coincident with the introduction of the mass-compatible (IBM-Microsoft) personal computer, the 1980 Initiation occurred in an Air Sign.  The final Earth-Sign Initiation that followed, in 2000, coincided almost to the day with the “Dot-Com Crash,” initiating twenty years where we’re reviewing the Industrial Revolution to see what elements of it we want to keep as we move into the Digital Age.

The next Saturn-Jupiter Initiation in 2020 will be again in an Air-Sign, as will the following seven Initiations, till our first Water-Sign Initiation in 2160.  While we think of the Age of Aquarius as being about Harmony and Understanding, Sympathy and Trust abounding, Aquarius is also an Air Sign, and Air Signs are about mindstuff and Duality.  So while the advances in Scienterrific Knowledge and Technological Gadgetry will be phenomenal, the Digital-Age potential to Create Sustainability and Regeneration will depend on a lot more than thinking.  Aquarians will need to do a lot more than sitting in the pub arguing about which Political system makes them happiest.  Hence the importance of what we’ve been calling the New Paradigm and its implications for greater Equality.

Meanwhile, we’re in the last quarter of the last Earth-Sign Jupiter-Saturn Cycle, and the last quarter of a Cycle is about “Descending” into chaos (Disorder, not the dwarf planet).  Interesting that many folks are focused on Ascension while our Social and Economic Order is Descending.  We need to look for a moment through Rudolph Steiner’s eyes – while Ascension is about Matter merging into Spirit, Descension is about Spirit merging into Matter, one being no less Sacred than the other.

What normally occurs during the last quarter of a Cycle, is that the proponents of the Old Order redouble their Efforts to propagandize everyone into believing that the Status Quo is alive, well, and will Live on forever, while scrambling to keep their cheeks covered.  In the interim, everyone else is focused on their struggle to keep it together.  If we take a hint from the dwarf planet Chaos, though, and see the Trend for what it is – deconstruction of the Old to make Space for the unlimited potential of the New – and we avoid trying to pin down the New before the next Cycle starts, as that would simply perpetuate the Old – then we can Cooperate in destructuring our Old Patterns and making Empty Space for New Patterns to evolve into.

Two days after the Full Moon – a sufficiently short time that these two events will be closely intertwined – we enter a new province in our Relationship Dramas.  Since this applies more than anything to our Inner Female and Inner Male, it’s impact will be wide-ranging.  If you aren’t familiar with John Gray’s amazing work, this would be an excellent time to introduce yourself to it…

The new Cycle will be quite complex, so we’ll save it for when we continue…

August II – Big Integration Gets Bigger

August 5, 2015

neph5687bp A wave-carved Nephrite Jade sculpture from Jade Cove on the Big Sur Coast.  On the one hand it’s shameful that there is no longer any Jade in Jade Cove, as it’s all been collected.  On the other hand, what a gift that it’s Integrative Magic has been distributed across the Globe.

  Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ 

Our next Big Integration episode will be 9 August, around noon PDT (http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt12.htm), plus or minus six hours.  We should get a hint, probably scary, about our Unlimited Potential.  Like Marianne says…

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.  We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? 

Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.  Your playing small does not serve the world.  There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.  We are all meant to shine, as children do. 

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.  It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.  And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.  As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

–Marianne Williamson, A Return To Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles, Pg.190-191.

Breathe, Feel it in your Body, Embrace it there, Lovingly.  It’s your Gift, prepare yourself for Receiving it.

The Moon crosses the dwarf planet Chaos, which symbolizes Unlimited Potential, not Disorder.  Chaos is both one corner of the base of the T-Square, and one corner of the Mystic Rectangle, Opposite Pholus-Ixion, Square Chiron, Trine to Haumea, and Sextile Uranus-Eris.  Grace, Difficult to Receive.

By the way, all this action occurs in 21-24 Degrees, so will excite any natal planet you have in these Degrees.

  Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ 

Then comes 14-17 August, and this Window really stretches out to something like 11-24 August, and it’s HUGE.  Enormous Grace available here.  Watch out for “Upper Limits,” where we’re overwhelmed by how fabulous it all seems, and have to discount it to make it fit into our small Ego.  And watch out as well for Inflation, where we attribute all the fabulousity to our Inflated Ego.  This is the Stars Dancing; if you can follow along in step, you’re Golden.  But one of the best ways to get out of step is to figure that your Lifetime of Hard Work is finally paying off!  Well, okay, it is, but not in the way you imagine.  The glass is still pretty darkly.

On 14 August the New Moon occurs right in the 21-Leo point that completes the Diamond Star again.  It’s like the Sun coming out again after a Storm – all this Confusion and Difficulty and Stress, and then suddenly everything falls into place and it becomes effortless.  This Window should be open for about three days on either side.

Then on 15-17 August Venus backs over the same point.  Venus is moving slowly here, near its Inferior Conjunction, so its three-Degree span of Sensitivity runs from around 11 August to 24 August.

It’s a narrow passage between Deflation and Inflation of the Ego.  Watch the angle of your chin – when you take a deep Breath and straighten your spine, it should be pretty much straight out, not pointing either up or down.  Experiment with that; the Body doesn’t lie (except when resting).  Another trick is to look to see if you’re enying or resenting anyone.  That means you’re comparing yourself to them, and you’re incomparable.  As are they.  Breathe again, and imagine having equal stature to theirs.

Get together with a good friend or two, and practice putting each other down – and up.  See if you can trigger each others’ Shame or Pet Peeves or Righteous Anger.  Make sure you all understand the Game first, of course, and when you succeed, shift immediately to Loving Embrace.  Before you start, determine each persons Suffocation/Abandonment threshold.  Too much Love Suffocates some people, not enough leaves other Abandoned.  As you play the Game, Pay Attention to whether you’re using the right threshold for each person and moment.

You want to help shift each person from Shame to Self-Love.  An Introvert may need some space away from the others to Embrace their Shame.  When you encounter Righteous Anger (not “I hate it when they do that” but “I hate them when they do that”) or Abandonment (“No one has ever appreciated me for that”), work with it until the person understands that they’re working with their Held Emotions, not with the Outside World.

Self-Love is neither Inflated nor Deflated, but Juusstt Right.  This is an excellent opportunity to attune ourselves to it, so we can recognize when we’re out of it, and bring ourselves back into it.

Oh, and the asteroid Karma is Initiated by Eris on 13 August, at 24 Aries, “Blown inward by the wind, the curtains of an open window take the shape of a cornucopia.”  Alan Watts said that it’s harder to Let Go of our “good” Karma than it is to Let Go of our “bad” Karma.  Our “good” Karma Inflates us.  On the other hand, Eris’s expertise is popping balloons.

  Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ 

By 24 August, we’re studying Responsibility instead. 

By the time Venus has moved three Degrees away from the point that completes the Diamond Star, the Moon has moved around to cross Pholus-Ixion.  That occurs around 7am PDT (http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pdt7.htm) plus or minus 4-5 hours.

The Challenge here is to be Fully, Disgracefully, Distastefully, Disgustingly, Blasphemously our True Self.  We were Programmed to Judge ourselves for certain Behaviors, even if those Behaviors were natural, beneficial, and useful.  Some of those were just social conventions, for which you can just excuse yourself and move on.  Others are Shameful, Horrible, making you worthy only of crawling into a hole and starving to death.  So these are all things we must learn to Love if we want to crawl into a Whole.  And it’s not optional.  Time for a farting contest, at best, and at worst, the most disgusting depravity you can imagine.

But that’s Ixion.  Pholus is here too, and Pholus is about Taking Full Responsibility.  So you Challenge each other to a farting contest, and then you wash each others’ undies.  Remember that Blame looks to the Past for Cause, while Responsibility looks to the Future for Leverage to Change what we Want Changed.  So it’s not enough to just fart and belch and worse; how do we Take Full Responsibility for farting and belching and worse? 

Well, we could perform our heinous Acts in private and only with other consenting adults, but that’s a shallow interpretation of Responsibility.  To be Fully Responsible we have to have a Goal, even if it’s Change for the sake of Change.  Farting and belching might provide temporary relief from bloating – so we may be Taking Full Responsibility for relieving bloating, that’s admirable.  We may want temporary relief from bloating and social behavior in accordance with local custom.  Or relief from bloating and affront to someone we Want to loosen up, though there would be more Responsible ways to approach the latter.  To be Responsible we have to know our Goals, all of them.

  Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ 

However, by 24 August we’re in a different province, one that spans about 20-26 August.  In this province we’re studying Fear, particularly Actions performed out of Fear.  While we’ll certainly be looking back into the Past and probably experiencing Regret, we want to shift that into What would we do differently next time?  to be more Responsible.

Sedna turns Retrograde at 26 Taurus on 26 August.

It’s fascinating that these two events are occurring together, because it gives us a fabulous opportunity to practice Responsibility using examples from places where we’d usually go into Shame or Blame or both.  Instead we can focus on the Positive Result of our Fearful Acts, and brainstorm about how we might manifest even better Results by Breathing into our Fear and operating instead out of Love.

  Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ    Θ

On 28 August it’s very important to be very Loving and Gentle with yourself, particularly with any parts of yourself that aren’t age-appropriate.  By 30 August, the Moon has come back around to where it was at the beginning of August, but without the Grace.  This will be confounded on 31 August by the beginning of a new era in our Emotional Relationships, including our Relationship with ourSelf, and specifically the Relationship between our Inner Male and Inner Female.

The Moon crosses the “Nursery rug” Vacancy on 28 August and Chiron again on 30 August, but on 31 August Mars Initiates Venus, at the Midpoint of Leo, “A pageant, with its spectacular floats, moves along a street crowded with cheering people.”  This will govern our Relationships for a couple of years; lets hope we don’t fall into Codependence, as that’s anything but Responsible.

We could easily encounter our Discouragement about Relationship here.  If you review all of the Romantic movies you’ve seen, most of them come to a happy ending because against all odds the couple ends up together.  Now recall the ones where the couple discovers that they don’t really inspire one another’s brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous Selves to Shine brightly, and choose not to end up together.  Which kind of movies end up with crowds of people cheering them on?  While we may not need to Change whom we’re in Relationship with between now and June 2016, we’ll certainly find our Relationships Changing.

Focus on what you Want from Relationship, and begin talking about it as if it were completely possible.  Acknowledge any Discouragement that arises and be Loving and Gentle with it.

We get another layer of complexity added on 1 September, when the World reveals more hidden but important issues that we haven’t noticed before.

By 1 September the Moon is back over Uranus-Eris.

Wholeness

February 21, 2015

Here Kate Hendricks interviews Debbie Rosas on The Body’s Way, with fantastic insights into integrating the Bod and the various other manifestations of Self.  This one includes video…

http://2015.bodyintelligencesummit.com/program/95

It’ll be online only till around 2pm PST ( http://www.jbuss.com/tt/pst14.htm ) February 22.  Very impressive and very timely.  The YouTube version is at

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6fULOab3Ik#t=2626

But I don’t know if it will remain online longer than the other link.

Potential and Possibility

February 20, 2015

More Synchronicities – the concept of Potential keeps coming up in these interviews, and arises in Carol Tuttle’s workshop that we’ll link to in a moment.  The concept is still a subtle background; see if it doesn’t grow more prominent in the week ahead.

The dwarf planet Chaos – which represents Potential rather than Disharmony, is Stationary turning Direct on February 27.

Today’s gift from Donna Eden and David Feinstein is a recording of a four-hour workshop presented by Carol Tuttle.  We’ve had Carol “on this show” before; she’s a well-known EFT (aka Tapping) practitioner.  David of course is one of the movers and shakers in EFT, as it was his review of the extant scienterrific literature on the subject that convinced the American Psychiatric Association to grant continuing education credits for EFT courses to psychologists and psychiatrists.  Since it’s somewhat difficult to follow verbal instructions for physical movements, before we give Carol’s link I want to give a link to Jessica Ortner’s very straightforward introduction to a simple but very effective version (the one I use) of EFT…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzVd6Ww0as4

It would be great if Donna needed no introduction, as Donna is to Energy Medicine as Janis Joplin is to Rock and Roll and Johnny Appleseed is to Fruit.  A modern-day Saint, really.  If you’ve never spent time with her work and you can afford it, get one of her books or DVDs.  If you can’t afford one, go in with some friends and share it, or wander around the extensive “Resources” section of her website.  Here are the basics…

http://www.theinnersourcestore.com/energy-medicine-4/

but don’t miss (menus to the left) Energies of Love for Women and Energies of Love as well.

Okay, with that background, here’s Carol Tuttle’s four-hour audio workshop that covers many of Donna’s elementary techniques, and EFT as well…

http://www.theinnersourcestore.com/the-energies-of-love-relationship-series-day5

Long, but worth the time even if you’re already familiar with EFT and Energy Medicine.  The primary theme is – what else – Relationship, but Abundance and Yintegrity are ubiquitous themes in all of Carol’s works, including this one.  There’s also a lot of great stuff on Carol’s own website…

http://caroltuttle.com/

I don’t know how long Donna and David plan to leave these great Gifts online, but this is Day 5, and Day 1’s audio is still online.  These are all fabulous resources.
